Wowpot 5-Reel is an online slot game provided by Microgaming. The game was created due to the success and popularity of the original Wowpot 3-Reel game. Wowpot 5-Reel’s game design is reminiscent of a classic fruit slot machine, featuring a variety of fruit symbols shared with the original Wowpot slot, and 5 reels and up to 15 paylines in a cheerful and colourful game.
Wowpot 5-Reel’s main bonus feature is its progressive jackpot, which it shares with its Wowpot 3-Reel counterpart to create an even bigger jackpot value. This game’s wild symbols also function as multipliers, doubling the value of winning combinations on the reels when they substitute for another symbol.
Game Play and Themes
The Wowpot 5-Reel online slot is based on the traditional fruit slot machines that for many decades have been a feature on the floors of most land-based casinos. This game’s graphics and visuals are brightly coloured, with the reels placed against a radiant purple background. On the reels of Wowpot 5-Reel are a number of common slot game symbols, including seven and bar symbols in a selection of colours, as well as fruits and bells. The game’s pay table is sleek and neat, and brightly hued paylines surround the reels on either side at Microgaming casinos.
On the Reels
The reel symbols in Wowpot 5-Reel are based on the slot symbols that players might expect to find featured in a traditional old-style fruit slot. These symbols include fruits like lemons, oranges, watermelons, plums and cherries, and other symbols of a purple bar symbol, a green and purple striped seven, a gold bell and a diamond-encrusted seven.
Wowpot 5-Reel’s wild symbol is the ‘Wowpot’ logo. This logo wild can substitute all other symbols on the reels except for the scatter symbol to form additional winning combinations. This logo wild also acts as a win multiplier, awarding a double multiplier for winning combinations in which it substitutes for another symbol.
