Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is a game that has a very classic layout, but a look and a list of features which should put it into modern game territory, even though it’s a dated look that you’re getting. The action is based on a movie from 1989, with symbols offering images of various actors that played in it, including a young Keanu Reeves. The game does very well feature wise, especially for a 3 reel title, including here multiple bonus games and a wild. 5 lines are used on the 3 reels, and the payouts can reach $4,000.
Betting and Prizes
You’re always using 5 lines in this game, the number being fixed. 5 coins are part of each wager you use, with denominations which are between $0.10 and $2. As for the betting range, it will start at $0.50, and go up to $10. Either way, it’s not going to be a very expensive slot machine to play.
The best reward comes from a Jackpot symbol with the logo of the game. It can pay 2,000 coins in exchange for a combo of three icons, which should mean that the top prize is worth $4,000.
Excellent Adventure Slot Features
The game has way more features than you will find in most 3 reel titles. It starts with the wild symbol, which has a WS logo on it. The slot calls this a Wyld, but the way it works is the same as with any regular wild symbol. It is a substitute that you can get to replace regular symbols which are needed for new combinations. It does not substitute for the bonus symbols and it can form combinations of three symbols that pay 1,000x.
Circuits of Time is the name of the first feature of this slot. Three Bonus symbols present anywhere on the reels, used as scatters, will get you inside the bonus game. Once inside, you can get win spins, which will pay you anywhere between 10x and 1,000x the total bet. You can play this feature in Auto Pilot, or you can take it to Manual, in which case you have to shoot the planets yourself.
Guitar Bonus is the other feature that you can go after. This will trigger at random, after any spin, and it’s a feature with payouts of up to 500x the bet.
The slot has one other thing, which I haven’t seen in any other classic title before. It’s the Cascade feature, common enough in modern games, but missing from all 3 reel titles. Symbols forming combinations will explode, and in the void that remains new ones will come in, hopefully forming more combinations during the same paid round.
Theme & Design
Excellent Adventure graphics use quite a few images from the film, the five regular ones all having actors on them. There are also symbols with a couple of logos, a guitar and a box. It’s a dated look unfortunately.
The graphics might be somewhat disappointing, but the features of the slot are excellent, and even the prizes can be great if obtained during bonus features. The Cascade feature is a very pleasant surprise.
