KISS

The KISS slot from WMS, takes the legendary band into the world of slots. While the graphics aren’t great (compared to say Jack and the Beanstalk from Net Entertainment)

The slot itself has a  “Main Reel Set” of 5 reels with 4 symbols showing on each. To the right of this sits the aptly named “Colossal Reel Set” with an additional 5 reels, each with 12 symbols – colossal! 😉  The Colossal Reel set is something that has proven popular in “real world” casinos (if you didn’t know, WMS are one of the top providers of slot machines to land based casinos), and now it’s available online.

The game has a maximum number of active paylines of 100, but you can dial this down to 20 if you want. The symbols in the game tend to be stacked which can be helpful to increase the value of your wins.

Feature

Three or more KISS symbols appearing in the play area will activate the Feature, which is basically just a free spins round, but with a multiplier attached.

  • 3 Symbols = 8 Free Spins + x2 Multiplier
  • 4 Symbols = 12 Free Spins + x5 Multiplier
  • 5 Symbols = 20 Free Spins + x20 Multiplier

We hit just the 8 free spins during our review play and had a big win, so… as you can see from the above, a 5 symbol activation of the free spins feature is simply going to be huge – the result of being so rare I guess, but hey, we can all dream right?

Music

Each spin of the slot machine plays a short clip from some of the band’s most famous songs. Hit a big win and it’ll play “Shout it out Loud”, activate the free spins and you’ll see a quick video clip followed by “Detroit Rock City” playing during the spins.

There’s also a sweet guitar solo that kicks in for each win line – the more lines you hit on a given spin, the more of the solo you get to hear – but each line is shown in time with the music – a small touch, but it always brought a smile to our face.
