Twister is a Microgaming slot that appears to be inspired by tornadoes, featuring various objects and characters that are supposedly picked up by its powerful winds. There are various images of outhouses, pick-up trucks, TVs and even gas stations which are supposedly picked by the tornado, along with a bunch of characters that look like they are made in a caricature style, and taken from an area where rednecks are predominant. The design isn’t one of the game’s strong points, using a style that isn’t very appealing, but the features might do better, including doubled wins, free spins, scatters and even some wilds. A maximum of 15 pay lines can be activated, and from them you can take home wins of up to $75,000.
Betting and Prizes
You will work with a betting range between $0.01 and $75. The largest number of coins per line will get up to 10, and with all 15 lines in use, the maximum bet will have 150 coins. To get to a maximum bet of $75, you obviously need to use coins of $0.50, the biggest ones available. The minimum coin value is $0.01.
Though in plenty of other areas the slot doesn’t impress, its top jackpot is definitely easy to describe as such. You can win back 15,000 times the line wager, which can mean 150,000 coins, or up to $75,000 cash.
Twister Slot Features
The Twister slot, shown as a blue tornado with a mean face drawn on it, will be the game’s most important symbol, by far. You can win a jackpot of 15,000x if the five Twisters take over an active line, and you can also have these symbols in the roles of the substitutes, capable of helping out with the regular symbols and their combinations. You shouldn’t expect a wild symbol to act as a replacement for one of the scatters.
Speaking of scatters, we have the TV Set in that role. You land these symbols in whatever positions they happen to be in, and yet you still can take home a prize of up to 60 times the bet, plus access to 20 free spins. The wins get double the usual value during free spins. To trigger the free spins you need 3+ icons, while for cash prizes 2+. You can retrigger the free spins of Twister, with another set of 3+ TV Set scatters.
Theme & Design
Twister slot might not be a great looking game, especially with the redneck characters and the caricature style in which they were created, but it’s not a slot to rely on poker cards either. The symbols start with the two features, the Twister and the TV Set, and then there are the four redneck characters, the gas station, the RV, a truck and an outhouse.
Twister’s big payouts will make all the difference in this case. It’s got standard features inside, but those payouts get to some serious values if you only take into account the jackpot. The regular combinations are not nearly as impressive.
