The team at IGT has brought us a fantastic slot based on the 1980s classic comedy movie Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. This is five reels, 20 pay line slot game playable from 10p per spin and goes up as far as £300 per spin. There are three fantastic bonus features that you will get to play and you can win up to 2500x your stake.
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure Graphics and Theme
The Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure slot is based on the hit 1989 movie of the same name which starred Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter as they time travel through history to assemble characters for a school presentation. The graphics in this slot are very cartoony in nature and fit the film’s theme perfectly.
The infamous telephone booth encases the reels and the first thing you will notice is that the slot has 80s style graphics and animations. The soundtrack is brilliant and uses the most famous song from the film which is ‘Play with Me’ by Extreme. You will also hear the main characters from the film talk to you as you play.
The symbols start with the low-value ones such as diamonds, hearts, spades and clubs. The higher paying symbols include Princess Elizabeth/Kimberly LaBelle, Rufus, Ted and Bill. The wild symbol is a Bill and Ted Wyld symbol which substitutes for every other symbol except the scatter symbol. The Wyld symbol is the most valuable giving you up to 50x your stake for a 5 combination.
The Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure slot offers quite a few brilliant bonus features. When both Bill and Ted become wild, there is a Lock and Respin Bonus feature where you will get respins and try and land on one of the historical characters. These upgrade the fixed jackpots available.
Wyld Stallyns feature
When one or more Bill scatter or Ted scatter symbols land on the reels, the Wyld Stallyns may trigger. All Bill and Ted symbols become wild symbols. These substitute for all symbols except the bonus scatter.
No Way, Yes Way! feature
Then there is this slot feature, which will offer you the chance of triggering the Lock and Respin bonus slot feature when the bonus scatter will appear on reels 1 and 3 only. When triggered, reel 5 will respin. If a bonus scatter lands, you will activate the Lock and Respin slot bonus feature.
Lock and Respin Bonus feature
The Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure slot’s main bonus feature is the Lock and Respin Bonus feature. This is played when the bonus scatters appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time in the base game. You will then head into the telephone booth in order to find big wins.
Three respins awarded, the bonus scatters are locked in position for the duration of this feature. Each of them gives you a cash prize up to 100x your stake. When the phone booth symbol hits, the respin counter resets to three.
The historical characters are very important in this feature to win one of the fixed jackpots. At the beginning of this feature, one out of eight historical characters are chosen at random as the Jackpot Upgrade symbol. Starting at zero, the more you collect, the bigger the jackpot you will win.
15 locked symbols= 200x stake
8 historical characters = 50x stake
6 historical characters = 25x stake
4 historical characters = 10x stake
2 historical characters = 5x stake
If the Jackpot Upgrade historical character appears, all five jackpot values are upgraded. The jackpots can upgrade up to eight times. These are the maximum win at each level;
Lv1= 200x stake
Lv2 = 400x stake
Lv3 = 600x stake
Lv4 = 800x stake
Lv5 = 1000x stake
Lv6 = 1200x stake
Lv7 = 1400x stake
Lv8 = 1600x stake
Lv9 = 1800x stake
Once you add in the cash prizes you could win up to 2500x your stake.
You can adjust your bet, using the buttons at the bottom of the screen. The buttons on the right of that start the reels spinning, as soon as you set your bet. If you do not want to change your bet each time, you may prefer to use the autoplay button.
