Players Roar at the Mention of This Slot
Roaring Forties is a fruity, 1940s inspired slot game. With a very classic theme, Roaring Forties looks like a game that could have been played back in the 40s! However, the Novoline version was released not too long ago. As is typical of a Novoline slot, Roaring Forties has 5 reels. Although, to compliment the title and the theme of this slot, it has 40 paylines! You can bet a minimum of 1p per payline so, the minimum bet per spin is 40p. On some slot games, you can choose not to bet on every payline but this Novoline slot game doesn’t give you that option. Roaring Forties has a pretty decent RTP, especially for a Novomatic slot game. It’s not a slot with any special features or Free Games but the high RTP makes up for it.
The forties theme is evident in the design of the logo and the symbols. This game has a forties-style font and the symbols would look well placed in any 1940s advert or magazine. The nineteen-forties was a decade of big change. Throughout this decade, the world saw the end of World War Two. Technology, especially TV and radio, became more widely used and readily available. As well, the fashion was all about glitz and glamour – just like the design of this slot. You’ll hear forties music when you win so, dance along if you know the steps!
Win Forty Ways to Sunday
When you spin the reels of Roaring Forties, you will have forty ways to win! There are 40 paylines in total, and each payline takes a different route across the reels. All forty paylines are one-way; they start from the left and end on the right. After you press the spin button, keep an eye on the left-hand side and watch out for matching symbols! The red seven symbol has a minimum payout for 2 matches, and higher payouts for more matches. The other symbols give minimum payouts for 3 matches. The highest win for any symbol is for 5 matches. Matching symbols have to follow the path of one or more paylines to pay out a win. Starting from the leftmost reel, they have to land on successive reels (without skipping a reel), on the positions that follow a payline. Because there are 40 paylines, some of them overlap on the first two or three reels, which means you might get multiple payouts for the same matching symbols!
They Say Life Begins at Forty!
Life might begin at forty but the wins in Roaring Wilds can begin with only 2 matching symbols. The red seven symbol gives wins for 2 or more matches. All the other symbols need at least three matches to pay out. The remaining symbols in this slot are the golden bell, the watermelon, the plum, the orange, the grapes, the lemon and the cherry. In addition, Roaring Forties has a Wild and a Scatter. These are both special symbols! The Scatter pays wins for 3, 4 or 5 matches but they can land absolutely anywhere. As for the Wild, this symbol can fill in for any other symbol (except the Scatter) if it’s in the right place to be able to complete a win. You can use the gamble feature when you get a win in Roaring Forties. You might double your payout, but you have just as much chance of losing it. In the gamble game, you’ll see a pack of cards and you have to guess whether the next card to be dealt will be red or black.
