Roaring Forties is a very basic, very primitive video slot. It has been designed and developed by Novomatic, and is kind of an amalgamation between a video slot in terms of structure, and a classic slot in terms of imagery. The Roaring Forties slot takes its name from the fact that it contains a total of 40 paylines for you to bet on over its 5 reels. The slot won’t allow you to adjust the number of lines you play with, but you can adjust the value of your coins from 0.01 up to 2.00. Minimum floor bets are fixed at 0.40 per spin. Maximum capped ceiling bets will cost 80.00 per spin. Players can win as much as 2,000 coins in this non-progressive video slot.
Novomatic’s Roaring Forties slot does contain a wild symbol, and it comes in the appearance of an explosion emblem with the word “wild” written across it. The wild symbol can replace all other symbols in the game, barring scatter icons. Wilds do not have any monetary value on their own, though, which is a bit of a shame.
Roaring Forties also contains a star symbol, and that icon acts as a scatter. It can offer you scatters winnings worth 2x, 20x, or 200x your total bet. These symbols count no matter where they land on the reels, boosting your chances of a win. As mentioned, though, wilds cannot replace them.
Aside from those two symbols, the only other icon worthy of mention is the 7 symbol. This symbol is the best paying one in the game, and can result in your winning a jackpot of 5 appear on any active line.
There are no bonus features in this slot. Players are therefore going to have to make do with whatever they can scrounge together from the standard paying icons which appear in the slot. Although it is certainly not common for fruit machines to contain special features and bonus rounds, one would perhaps expect a video slot with simple fruit symbols to offer you a free spins bonus at the very least. Even so, this one does not.
