Andre the Giant is a slot game featuring the wrestling personality, most well known for his enormous size, robust personality and love of his fans. The game, although dated in comparison to more modern games, is still a fun and interesting experience, featuring decent graphics and an excellent mini game.
In terms of game play it features a standard five reel twenty five line system, but with the added benefit of players being allowed to select their play lines. This allows for advanced strategic play, and is certain to appeal to slot game veterans who are after a more in depth experience. Andre the Giant is available now for desktop computer, laptop, tablet and mobile phone. Please remember that if playing on desktop computer, the latest Flash software must be installed.
Symbols And Standard Play
In terms of standard play Andre the Giant goes a long way to avoiding the clichés, with much effort put into creating icons that are unique and recognisable. It is one of the few games that does not fall back on the traditional jack, queen, king symbols, that are more then used to death in most games. Instead players will be matching masked lucho libre wrestlers, folding chairs, wrestling boots, wrestling masks, referees, show tickets, and much more.
Andre the Giant himself also makes an appearance, of course, and his arrival is one players will surely be celebrating. But this will be discussed in the next section. The masked wrestler is the most valuable symbol in the game, offering a huge instant cash prize if matched a total of five times. The least valuable symbols in the game are the hotdogs, show tickets and other less impressive objects, giving only minor payments, even if matching five times. It is the wrestling, however, that brought players to the game, and that is where the real cash can be found.
Bonus Mini-Game Action
Andre the Giant acts as the games wild symbol, and each time the symbol is used the occasion is masked by Andre animating and kicking the living daylights out of the player. It is a nice touch, and clearly one that involved professional animators. This, however, is not the most impressive part of the online gambling game. If that scatter symbols are matched the Fight Night mini-game will trigger, which opens a second screen.
The player is required to make as many quick matches as they can in the play area, with special wrestling move symbols added. Every wrestling symbol matched will be added to a list, which comes into play afterwards. After the bonus spins are finished the fight begins, with Andre the Giant using all the wrestling moves the player managed to gather. The animation for this sequence is a delight, and sure to get a few cheers from fans of professional wrestling. Plus, if a total of three wrestling moves are used, Andre will automatically use a spectacular finishing move. This is not only a great deal of fun, but will also result in the player receiving an added bonus jackpot.
