Every player has their own way of selecting an online slot machine. Some prefer certain themes, others like specific game developers and many will only play slot machine games with bonus rounds.
What are bonus rounds we hear you ask? Well, special bonus rounds are potential features that can be triggered at any point during your gameplay. These features vary depending on each slot machine and they can range from special symbols to interactive video games that divert your screen to a different setting. If you are lucky enough, these bonus rounds can even trigger prizes like free spins and multiplying bonuses.
Of course, these features are triggered at random and at no point of playing are you ever ‘due’ to activate a bonus round. However, if you wish to try your luck in unlocking some extra-bonuses outside of the main game, Bucky has put together a list of some awesome slot machine games with bonus rounds.
See below for our top picks – each online slot is available to play right here at Bucky Bingo!
What better way to kick off this blog than with arguably the most classical UK online slot machine of them all – the Irish themed, Rainbow Riches. With five reels and twenty paylines, this casino game is easy enough to play and it holds a distinct reputation for its lively, green setting. Based in the vibrant Irish meadows, you are welcomed into an animated world filled with Leprechauns, pots of golds and many other Ireland themed symbols.
The gameplay is certainly bubbly and there is even a potential jackpot of £100,000! This is just one of the many bonus rounds that can be found inside Rainbow Riches though, as there are also three more. Each other bonus game holds the potential to trigger some big multiplying values to your winnings, with there being a whopping 500x stake up for grabs!
These bonus features are all triggered via certain symbols inside the reels and they are called the Roads to Riches game, a Wishing Well bonus and the Pots of Gold game. All three games offer you something extra to look out for when playing, but the most interactive of them all is the Roads to Riches game. If you should be lucky enough to trigger this feature, you will need to spin a virtual wheel onto your screen. You will only reach the wheel if you choose the correct path to go down and each potential option is powered by a random selector.
Of all the slot machine games with bonus rounds, they don’t come much better than Age of the Gods: King of the Underworld. Playtech have released many editions of the Age of the Gods casino games and the King of the Underworld version possesses two main bonus rounds! If you are lucky enough to land three Cerberus (also known as the Hound of Hades) across an active payline, the Gates of Hall bonus feature will be activated.
Inside this game mode, your screen will transform into a new setting and you will be presented with a selection of three doors. Each door has a path into the dark Underworld but there is no reason to worry, there are some multiplying bonuses to be found within the dark realms! If your door should release the demon though, the bonus game will come to an end. Will you be lucky enough to open the gates to a big multiplying stake?
Alongside the Gates of Hall bonus, there is also the Thread of Fate feature. This bonus game is activated with the Fate Sister symbol, with three of them triggering the feature. Similarly to the Gates of Hall game, your screen will be provided with three different options. Instead of doors however, you must pick from one of the three strings. Select one at random and try to thread the pathway for the sisters – if your needle doesn’t cut, the game will end. The further your threaded path gets, the higher your multiplier will be!
So, alongside these two awesome bonus features, the Age of the Gods: King of the Underworld slot machine also has a dark, mythical theme. Minimum bets start at 20p per spin and there is a progressive jackpot that can also be triggered. To qualify for 100% of the cash fund, £2 will need to be staked in your game. Enter the realms deep under Earth and discover some ancient Greek gods inside this casino game.
Are you ready to enter the wilderness with Playtech’s Jungle Madness slot machine? It isn’t a difficult task to guess what this casino game is all about – the jungle wildlife! Discover a range of animal symbols like toucans, snakes, monkeys, crocodiles and tigers! The latter is certainly a special icon inside Jungle Madness as it acts as the Wild throughout the game. This means that it can replace for all other symbols, plus, if you land five of them across a payline, the big jackpot will be released!
Inside the reels you can also find two human figures, both of which draw very strong resemblances to Tarzan and Jane, two notorious characters in the fictional tale of Tarzan. In the book and hit films, we see the jungle man swing from vines and trees, so it seems perfectly fitting to see a bonus game based on his climbing antics! If the man lands on the first reel, this bonus game will be triggered. Choose a vine for him to swing on and if he makes it to the end, a multiplying bonus will be applied to your winnings!
This feature gives you a piece of interactive gameplay to engage with and it contributes to the wild jungle theme too. There are also potential free spins to be found inside the reels too, if you are lucky enough to land at least three snake symbols onto the reels. Five of them activate 15 free spins! So, the game isn’t only crawling with jungle life and creatures, but some bonus game modes too.
Ever wanted to jump on stage and perform to a live audience? Now you can! Well, not exactly live on stage, but Playtech have created a lively and flashy setting for you to embrace!
Based on the real lift talent show, the Britain’s Got Talent slot game is exactly what it says on the tin. Each symbol is designed to replicate some sort of performance, as there are singers, dancers and musicians! There are also twenty active paylines and the gameplay has been made easy to follow. But what about the bonus rounds? Undoubtedly the biggest highlight of this casino game is the Live Show Bonus feature.
This bonus game will be activated if three of the Britain’s Got Talent symbols land on the reels 1, 3 and 5. Inside the feature, you will be presented with three special looking passes – either the musical, dance or novelty act. Your act will be chosen for you via the deciding wheel and then you simply have to sit back and see how far your act goes! The further your act gets in the talent show, the higher your multiplier will be. If you should be so lucky enough to reach the final, a whopping 1000x multiplying stake will be applied! This round is powered randomly and there is no skill involved with the bonus feature.
