The Madness Continues in Keep’Em Slot

Hacksaw Gaming introduced its Canny the Can character to the world in 2019 with its Stick ‘Em slot. Since then, they’ve added three more slots to the series. There’s Drop ‘Em, Stick ‘Em, and Book of Time, which rather annoyingly completely broke the carefully curated naming convention. It’s like a publisher completely changing the size and cover design of the fourth book in a series, so it looks weird on your bookshelf.

Thankfully, the ‘Ems are back with Hacksaw’s latest addition to the Canny the Can series Keep’Em slot.

Retro styling

Keep’Em slot is a six-reel slot that features 15,625 ways to win. One of the most unique ways is the instant win cash symbols that can appear on the reels. When an instant win cash symbol appears on the same spin as a Get’em symbol, the displayed value will be multiplied by your bet amount and the total awarded. This is confusing. The dollar symbol makes it appear that you will receive that amount as your winnings. However, it’s really just a multiplier. This seems unnecessarily confusing.

If an instant win cash symbol and/or a Get’em symbol appear on one of the two center reels (reels three and four), you will trigger the Keep’Em bonus. When this happens, the triggering symbol will be locked in place, and the rest of the reels respun three times, giving you the chance to add additional cash or Get’em symbols to the center two reels.

Three FS symbols will trigger the Keep’Em Comin’ round of free spins, while four will trigger the Keep Your Friends Close round of free spins. Once triggered, the Keep’Em Comin’ round of free spins will offer you an increased chance of landing Get’Em and instant win cash symbols over ten base spins.

Once a round of the Keep Your Friends Close free spins is triggered, instant win cash symbols will remain on the reels until they are collected. If you fill an entire row with uncollected instant win cash symbols, those amounts will automatically be paid out. Once collected, the cash symbols will disappear.

If you’re not keen on going through the madhouse to get to the good stuff, you can also select to purchase a round of either round of free spins.

Does Keep ’Em slot make the Canny the Can series proud?

Betting at the maximum of $25 a spin, you can expect to win up to $250,000 when playing Keep ’Em slot. Betting starts at $0.10 a spin, and thanks to the 10,000x maximum multiplier, you can expect some nice returns even if you are betting at the slot’s lowest levels. The slot features medium volatility, which gives the gameplay a balance between rare big wins and more consistent small wins. Keep’Em slot offers an RTP of 92.27%.

Stick ‘Em didn’t feature a Canny the Can sidekick. Drop ‘Em, Stick ‘Em, and Book of Time all featured the little mouse, who definitely has a name that currently escapes me. In Keep ‘Em slot, Hacksaw has introduced a brand-new character, Bob the Bird. While the mouse was kind of cute, Bob is a little creepy. Apart from that addition, fans of the series will feel right at home with the universe that is revisited in this newest Hacksaw release. And as has become standard with Hacksaw games, it’s brimming with bonus features that keep you engaged. I give Keep ‘Em slot a nine out of ten.

If you’re looking for a few more interesting slots from Hacksaw, I recommend trying Eye of the Panda and 2 Wild 2 Die.
