The Best Free Spins In Online Slots


Free spins are an integral part of video slots, but the trigger mechanism is usually boring. All you need to do is land three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. But once in a while you do get video slots with awesome and innovative free spins triggers. This article looks at three of the best.

Scrooge is a video slot from Microgaming based on the Dickens novel A Christmas Carol. Triggering the free spins can be a long drawn process, but it will not lack excitement. After every win you click on any of the winning symbols. One of two things will happen. One free spin may be added to the counter displayed on the reels. Or the calendar will move one day closer to December 25. The free spins feature is triggered when the calendar shows Christmas Day. The number of free spins awarded is the number in the counter at that time. The payouts are doubled during free spins.

Planet Exotica, also from Microgaming, is the third slot game of the Sneak A Peek series. Planet Exotica is an intergalactic night club where the high paying symbols are alien strippers. The lipstick kiss mark, referred to as the Smooch, is the scatter symbol. Three or more Smooch symbols appearing anywhere on the reels trigger the Select A Smooch bonus. You select any one of the Smooch symbols and will be awarded with up to 10 free spins to start with and up to a 2x multiplier. It is then that the excitement begins. If a pink lipstick appears on reel 5 the payout multiplier may increase by up to 2x. If a green lipstick appears on reel 4 can up to 3 extra free spins are added to the total. There is no limit to the number of additional free spins that can be awarded but the multiplier cannot exceed 10x. The free spins cannot be retriggered.

Fairy Magic is from Playtech. The fairy is the bonus symbol. The free spins feature is called Collective Bonus. Whenever the fairy appears on any reel she releases a star from her wand, which gets displayed below that reel. When four stars are collected below any reel then the Collective Bonus feature is triggered. The player is first awarded 4 times the total bet and 5 free spins with doubled payouts. If the fairy appears during this feature additional 5 free spins are offered.
