Slot Moments: Slotaholic Climbs the Beanstalk to a Handpay on Jack’s Riches

The slot maker AGS has an interesting game series in Reel Tower, with two themes, Jack’s Riches and Lucky Tea Party. And in this Slot Moment, we look at Slotaholic’s ups and downs with the games.

Both feature a collect the symbols type bonus that, similar to Buffalo Gold, let you upgrade more symbols to a top paying symbol as you collect the symbols, but in a twist to the model, add another reel set when you hit the milestones, and spin a wheel for more spins, the first three times you upgrade. (You can keep upgrading symbols past the first three upgrades.)

You need six of the collectible symbols to trigger at a minimum, and all of the ones you get from the trigger go on the counter, with upgrades at 11, 22, 33 and 55 symbols collected. As such, depending on how quickly the symbols fall down, and how early in the bonus, you can get some momentum pretty quickly, with the line hits flowing thanks to the number of symbols converted to the top progressive.

The point of Slot Moments is to show the potential of games through the eyes of players, so what I really like about Slotaholic’s video here is you get to see the game at its best and it’s not so best. There are multiple bonuses in all, with the last bonus being the one that really shows the potential, while the earlier ones can show waht happens when it doesn’t run the right way.

The good news is Josh did ultimately get a great outcome from the game, with a handpay on the bonus at a $3.75 bet, so it definitely delivered!

It’s great that Josh was able to show a more difficult part of his run followed by the strong win, so you can get a taste for how the game plays overall, instead of just what wins are like on the slot machine. Here you can get an idea of the range of possibilities, helpful as you decide if that’s a game you want to play.

The Slot Moments series selects videos that can show the real potential of a slot machine game. Do you have a moment that stands out for you? Share in the comments and it may be featured in a future edition!
