Bar-X Colossal Slot Review
Long before the days of the internet and even elaborate fruit machines the staple one armed bandit was the Bar-X. This was usually a 3 reel slot with one to three paylines. The symbols were simply Bars, Os, Xs and occasionally 7s. Since online gambling has taken off though these kind of “old school” games have been largely sidelined – until now! Slingo.com have launched yet another exclusive game and it’s called Bar-X Colossal.
Bar-X Collossal drags the old 3 reel game into 2017 with a twist. There are three reels, but the centre reel has been expanded to host either three symbols or one giant (or colossal) symbol thereby creating a 5 reel slot. Wins are on just 5 paylines but the premise is that when you do win then the wins should be big (or colossal).
The game itself is very basic. You set your wager using the left side button – choose from 20p, 50p, £1, £2, £5, £10, £50 or £100. Once you’re happy with your wager you then can spin/stop to play. Top prize is x500 coins and this is paid out with a line of 5 wilds on a payline. Any colossal symbol that appears fully in view in the centre reel triggers a free respin of reels 1 and 5.
As well as wilds and respins, Bar-X Colossal also has a progressive free spins feature. Get a bonus symbol in view during play to activate the feature and get the free spins as indicated on the game.
Bar-X Colossal is an exciting addition to Slingo.com and adds plenty of nostalgia to the slots world. Players more used to multi-line paylines however may wonder what the heck is going on and wins aren’t exactly prolific. The colossal respins do pop up with some regularity but we saw no hide or hair of the free spins feature. That said it is nice to play a slot that doesn’t have too many bells and whistles – you pay your money, press the button and hope for some luck.
We think Bar-X Colossal has all the makings of a classic game – currently it’s only available at Slingo.com but we’d anticipate it being rolled out on other Gaming Realms brands including Spin Genie, Love Island Games and Deal or No Deal Casino.
