About Clockwork Mice
You probably didn't know that most of the technology we take for granted today was once taunted as “science fiction” or “sci-fi” for short. Over time, sci-fi came to serve as a sneak peek into the future in terms of technological outlook, giving us both the fun and optimistic feel that comes with “peeping into the future”.
I’m guessing these are the same feelings the developers at Realistic Games are looking to stir up in you with the game Clockwork Mice - a 5 by 3 slot with 20 pay lines. The game is based on a sci-fi theme and features wild and scatter symbols, a random multiplier, and a free spins round.
The game also features a betting range that suggests that the developers are aiming at a broad genre of gambling preferences. Wagers start from as low as $0.20 and go up to $200.
The sci-fi-themed slot can be played on multiple devices spanning mobile, tablet, and desktop systems.
Although sci-fi is synonymous with complexities (in terms of technology), the objective is almost always the same: to make life easier and simpler for humanity. I’m guessing the simple design of the game is to align with this fact.
The paytable consists of symbols that can be grouped into two value grids. The low-value grid consists of the usual playing card symbols while the high-value grid consists of symbols of a casino, shuttle, and cafe as well as the game’s logo - the most valuable of the regular icons.
To get rewarded in the game, you need to land a matching combination of symbols on a pay line. The prize for landing matching combos will depend on the value of the symbol that makes up the combo as well as the number of the matching symbols you land.
For example, a matching combination of three clock mice logos will reward you with 10x the value of your total stake while a combo of four will reward you with 125x the value of your stake and five will award you 250x the value of your total stake.
The game also includes a wild symbol to boost your chances of landing winning combos. The wild symbol can take the place of other regular symbols to help you land winning combos in the game.
There’s also a scatter symbol, which is the key to triggering the bonus feature of the game.
To activate the bonus feature of the game, you need to land three or more scatters on the reels. The number of scatters you land will determine the number of free spins you get. While three scatters will award you 12 free spins, four scatters will reward you with 24 free spins while five scatters will reward you with 48 free spins.
The free spins game is played on a new set of reels where multiplier clocks augment your winnings. The multiplier value applied to your win will depend on where the hand lands on the clock. For example, if the clock lands at 2 o’clock, the payout will be subject to a 2x multiplier. Note that once a time has been hit, it is erased from the clock. What happens if you are lucky to remove all twelve multipliers from the clock? Well, you will be awarded the maximum prize.
