NetEnt Brings Back Magic of Classic Slots With Swipe and RollPublished August 7, 2018 by Ivan P
Swipe and Roll combines elements from classic fruit machines with modern graphics and bonus features, creating a unique and very interesting game.
One of the latest NetEnt slots, Swipe and Roll, is ready to hit the virtual shelves of online casinos across the globe on Tuesday, August 7, after being exclusively available at Leo Vegas since March of this year. With the Swipe and Roll slot, the Swedish developer tried to bring back the magic of classic fruit machines and combine it with the power of modern-day graphics and technology, and they did a good job.
Back to the 50s
Swipe and Roll is aimed primarily at generations of more experienced players who were introduced to gambling entertainment through old-fashioned fruit machines. The slot brings out that 1950s vibe with an Americana theme, from the background representing a classic casino or a bar filled with slots to classic 50s Rock'n'roll music playing as you spin the wheels.
Although Swipe and Roll isn't nearly as advanced in a visual sense as some other NetEnt releases, the game still features sharp graphics and nicely designed symbols one would expect to find in a fruity slot, such as watermelons, plums, bells, oranges, and diamonds, as well as lower-paying playing card symbols.
Several Entertaining Bonus Features
Although old slots weren't particularly rich in special features, NetEnt decided to use the opportunities provided by modern technologies and boost the Swipe and Roll slot with several bonus features to make the game more exciting.
First of all, there are diamond wilds, which come stacked on the reels and multiply all wins they help form by three. The maximum multiplier can go up to 27, as wilds land only on the middle three reels of this 5-reel and 20-payline game. And, landing a full stack of wilds will make the stack sticky and initiate a free re-spin.
The Coin Wheel feature triggers randomly during the base game, and it can award cash prizes or trigger the bonus game.
The bonus game, whether it gets triggered through the Coin Wheel or by landing three scatters on the reels, gives players a chance to spin three reels and awards the cumulative amount of coins found on each of them.
For all the fans of classic slots and for those looking for a game that's different to most of what's out there right now, the Swipe and Roll slot should be available at a number of NetEnt-powered online casinos.
