Worms is one of those games I grew up with (I’m old!) so this slot machine holds a bit of nostalgia for me. Loading up the game for the review, just seeing the graphics brought a smile to my face. Unlike some WMS games, the graphics here are a bit more polished.
There are three bonus features to unlock during your play.
Free Spins Battle
Reveal the Sergeant Major in the bonus crate and you’ll get to play the free spins battle feature. During this feature you have unlimited free spins BUT a limited amount of health. The centre reel is key here. If a worm dressed as a pirate appears, your health will be reduced, a worm dressed as a nurse restores part of your health and the Sergeant Major appearing again will award a cash prize. The feature ends when your health reaches zero.
Space Trail Bonus
Revealing the Cosmo Worm (he’s got what looks like a fishbowl on his head) starts the Space Trail Bonus game. There are a trail of planets leading to the big prize – a cash award of 1000x your original bet! Each planet awards an increasing size of multiplier.
You have to pick toolboxes from the right hand side of the screen that will do one of two things: Move your worm forward, or launch an attack. If your worm gets hit, the feature ends. You can win big on this feature, provided you get far enough along. During our review play we hit a teleport which got us up to a x30 multiplier fairly early on – we got up to a 50x multiplier before our worm got taken out by a mine.
Crate Escape Bonus
Reveal the Scot Worm (he’s in a kilt) to get to the Crate Escape. Again you have a worm with a finite amount of life – choose crates which will reveal a cash prize, a weapon which will reduce health, or a first aid kit which will restore some of the health. You keep going until your worm runs out of health.
The game looks great and plays well too. The bonus games are where you’re going to have the big wins – as you’ll have seen earlier in our review, during our gameplay, the Space Trail game gave us our biggest wins. Definitely recommend you give this one a try!
