Showtime Online Video Slot Game
Showtime is an online video slot game produced by Mazooma Interactive Games. As one of the smaller online video slot developers, Mazooma does not have their own casino software but instead lease their games out to specific online casinos. The online casinos will then host the game on one of the bigger casino platforms.
The theme of this game is all about television game shows and features images from some classic shows including pick a box and a revolving prize wheel. In relation to many today’s modern video slots, the graphics are quite basic with minimal effort put into carrying the theme of the game. The sound effects are also on the basic side as the developers chose to focus on the slot itself rather than the external look of the game.
5-reel, Game Show Themed Slot
In the Showtime online slot game, the slot itself is based on the standard setup of 5-reels and 20 paylines. Slot fans should have no trouble getting into the action of the game with all the relevant buttons easily displayed at the bottom of the screen. The pay table is displayed with a single click of a button detailing all the payouts in the game.
Despite the basic nature of the game, it does feature a reasonable number of bonus features including wild symbols, transferring wilds and two additional bonus round. The reel symbols in this game are not themed based with the exception of the wild and bonus symbols. For the standard reel symbols, the game uses the classic high card symbols from 9 to Ace.
Transferring Wild Symbols
The wild symbol in Showtime is the colourful symbol with the world “wild” written across the front. As with most online slot games, the wild symbol can substitute for any of the other standard symbols in order to form a winning combination. In this game there are two symbols the wild symbol cannot substitute for, these being the two bonus symbols. In this game the wild symbol also functions as a wild transfer. When the wild appears it will have an arrow next to it which will determine which adjacent standard symbol will be turned wild.
Spin the Wheel for Multipliers
Showtime features two additional bonus rounds. The first of which is active when 3 or more game logo symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Once triggered, players will be taken to a second screen where they will be presented with a large spinning wheel. The wheel is divided into a number of portions each containing a different multiplier. In the bonus round, players get a chance to spin the wheel and win up to 100 their total bet.
Pick A Box for Free Spins
The second bonus feature in the Showtime video slot game is the free spin bonus feature. This is triggered by landing 3 or more pick-a-box safe symbols anywhere on the reels. In the pick-a-box bonus round, players simple choose one of the boxes to reveal the number of free spins they have won. The free spin round will then commence before players are returned to the base game.
