On Tuesday April 12, 2015 Slots Plus Casino unveiled the newest game from Realtime Gaming suppliers; The Big Bopper. The game is available for download, instant and mobile play. The wide screen format video bonus slot commemorates the music of the late Jiles Perry “J. P.” Richardson, Jr. (October 24, 1930 – February 3, 1959) otherwise known as “The Big Bopper”. Richardson was an American musician, songwriter, and disc jockey, who helped pioneer the “rockabilly” sound. His best known hit was “Chantilly Lace” which came out in 1958. The Big Bopper died in a plane crash in February of 1959 along with American music legends Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens, as well as their pilot, Roger Peterson.
Yesterday’s release marks the second 6 reel video bonus slot from RTG’s developers, and the third “All Pays” game that doesn’t require symbols to land on designated lines to form a winning combination. The first six reel slot was Leprechaun’s Luck. The first two 243 payline games were The Nice List, a Christmas themed slot and Eternal Love – a vampiresque affair with unique features and a potentially volatile maths model.
The Big Bopper slot features two songs from the legendary performer including Chantilly Lace and White Lightning – each song is tied to a bonus feature. There is also a random bonus feature that can trigger on any spin awarding up to 250x bet again and again until the Bopper stops singing.
Betting on “multi-way” slots is slightly different from staking a traditional slot machine as all 243 lines are always selected. In order to escape forcing minimum bets of $2.43 wagering is done in increments; in this case the minimum bet is thirty cents and the maximum bet is 25x that or $7.50 per spin. Pays are factored on a penny to twenty five cents per winning combination.
Landing all six scatters awards a random bonus feature, player press the Spin button to learn what it is. Just looking at the pay table it would seem the Chantilly Lace Free Games feature could award the biggest prizes. Wild symbols already award 3x payouts and with up to 45 free games, this feature can multiply spin wins by 10x more.
You’ll find the game out today at many other RTG casinos as well. However Slots Plus offers a 400% sign-up bonus up to $10,000 for new players and they have plenty of options for U.S. players and others to deposit and withdraw.
