The Alcatraz online slot comes to our small screens with courtesy from the B3W software developer. It is a classic slot game, and when we hear the word “classic” mentioned in this genre, we immediately know that this is a three-reel slot. Classic refers to the archetypal one-armed-bandit games of the past. It also only features three possible winning pay-lines, and a minimum line bet of 0.50, with a maximum line bet of 6.00. This amount over three lines gives us a total maximum wager of 18.00 for a potential top prize in the main game of a whopping 5,000.00 coins. This is an excellent prize for what appears to be a small classic slot.
There are never any hugely special features in a classic slot. At bets these games are simplicity personified, and the same appears to be true of Alcatraz. Based on the famous prison of the same name, that can still be seen today in the bay of San Francisco. So, there are no Wild Symbols, noFree Spins, no Progressive Prizes, no Multipliers, or Scatters, but strangely enough, there is a Bonus Round.
Alcatraz – also known as the rock, was ostensibly the most difficult prison for criminals to escape from. Surrounded by the sea – this is, plus its secure reputation did not stop prisoners from attempting to break out however, and this secure environment is portrays in the backdrop of the game. Graphic rendering is pretty good, but there is a limited amount of detail, and icons used include bags filled with cash, banknotes, leg irons, the Federal bank, and prisoners.
Control toggles at the bottom of the slot offer the choice of Bet1, Spin, Bet Max, and Autospin, and really cute feature sees teams of prisoners dressed in striped gear, climbing up the walls on ropes as the player wins. Thematically this means, the more the player wins, the more prisoners are able to escape. It is actually really quite cute.
The prisoners climbing the walls are the theme for the bonus feature, get two columns of prisoners to the top, and there is the potential to win 2 x 5000 coins. Get one column to the top, and win x 100 coins. But take care the cops also come out randomly and send the escapees back to where they belong. We are not really sure what can be won, when the third column of prisoners reaches the top, but will bet it’s a worthwhile surprise.
