Powered by Booming Games software, Big Apple is a five-reel, twenty-pay line slot game that takes players to the bright neon lights of the Big Apple with symbols that relate to some of New York City's most iconic landmarks.
The Big Apple’s style combines a classic aesthetic with the iconic background of the New York skyline. Players will unearth symbols that represent the Empire State building and the Statue of Liberty. Furthermore, some icons show the yellow taxis, New York style pizza and Broadway – that would sum up a perfect evening in the NYC!
The biggest win on offer is an x2,000 total stake prize and is awarded to punters who accomplish landing five Empire State Building scatter symbols in any position along the reels. Additional wins are counted as line bet multipliers, with an x1,000 on offer to punters who obtain five ‘Wild’ Statue of Liberty symbols on any active pay line. Players will get x200 whenever five matching "7" symbols align, and players can compare all of the potential wins in the game’s pay table.
The wild symbols in Big Apple can replace all other symbols in the game to form winning combinations except for the scatters, since the scatters don’t need to arrive on a line to make a winning combination. Three or more high-paying scatters triggers a round of ten free spins, and these can also be re-triggered during the free spins’ bonus round.
From a pure gameplay point of view, this Big Apple shares many elements with other online slots. The game is clear on the eye and amazingly easy to play thanks to some fundamental, yet likely rewarding bonus rounds. Big Apple could be improved with some more courageous design features but, then again, this would only take away from the overall arcade appeal from the slot.
