Billyonaire Slot Review
Ok – here's my problem: I've always found movies like Zootopia kinda unnerving. The animals are personified, dressing and talking like we do - that's just freaky! I mean I can suspend my belief for a few minutes and see some of my traits in my pets – the cunning of my cat, the laziness of my tortoise and the randiness of my dog. But, more than that is just disconcerting… So, it was with this prejudice that I sat down to review Billyonaire, an Amatic video slot chronicling the life of a particularly freewheeling criminal feline name Billy. (By the way, you can give this slot a whirl on any device or platform.) When I began, despite my initial misgivings, I loved the opulence and unbridled pleasure of this game. I got more of an “Untouchables” vibe than a “Cotton Club” one while playing. The reason for this might be that Billy has a De Niro gangsta swagger and not a Richard Gere charm. Either way, I felt like I had “made it Ma! Top of the world!”
5 reels and a superb 40 paylines are occupied by symbols of the era: Billy, a newspaper, car, cigar lounge, dice, whiskey, casino, femme fatale feline and…a teacup? Gotta say Billy – that teacup detracts from your hardcore criminal image! Billy's the scatter while the casino is the wild which substitutes for everything except the scatter. Amatic has a unique control panel that's easy to use. From the left: Auto Start, Exit, Gamble. Bet, Bet Amount Display, and a Start(or spin) button. In the freewheeling spirit of the game, the AutoStart has no advanced stop settings, so once you start, you'll have to stop it manually.
After each winning spin, you got the option of a gamble. The fun part about this is that there are two options: The first is a double or nothing card choice of color only. The second is a 4x or nothing bet, having to choose color and suit. How brave are you feeling? Decisions…decisions… 3 or more Billy Symbols wins 7 Free Spins which are played with the same bet and line numbers as your activating spin. Before your Free Spins, an extra wild symbol is randomly selected and substitutes for all symbols except Billy. More Free Spins can be re-triggered but once all are finished, you're returned to the main game.
Are you sitting down for this? The best aspect of this game is that you could win 10 000x your bet – sometimes just the possibility of an enormous win is the greatest feature any game could have!
The graphics are decent, if not spectacular, with a cartoonish rendering of the symbols. The upbeat music when winning fits in nicely with the theme. Billyonaire performed very well across all the devices we tested,
Sometimes a game comes along that, despite not having groundbreaking features, is just brilliantly entertaining. Billyonaire's enduring popularity proves it's in this category. It's well engineered with a fantastic maximum win and is just downright fun. I was filled with negativity entering into this game but exited with a gleeful grin and the knowledge that I'd be returning soon. It's got attitude and pizzaz galore!
