Tipping Point Slot Review
Following on from the success of the exclusive Tipping Point Bingo game at Sky Bingo, Sky Vegas are hoping for a repeat performance with the launch of Tipping Point slots. This is a 5 reel 20 payline slot from Core Gaming!
The game can be played from as little as 20p a spin but there are options to raise this up to a maximum of £100. Unlike a lot of slots there are a number of steps between a 20p wager to £2 – far too often there’s a great step up from low stakes to high stakes play.
Tipping Point slots is very colourful and gameplay is accompanied by dramatic music associated with the TV show. The main symbols of 10, J, Q, K and A are joined by various counters – all emblazoned with the words tipping point just in case you weren’t aware of why they were in the game!
Tipping Point Slots has a number of features. These include bonus spins and a Jackpot Bonus. Bonus spins come in to play when you get three or more bonus symbols on the reels. This then activates a bonus spins builder to determine the next play. The Jackpot Bonus is the star collection area on the right of the slot. Each time a gold star appears in the fifth reel this is added to the section.
Once you hit 10 stars you then play a bonus round for the chance to win a cash prize or one of the three progressive jackpots on offer. As far as we’re aware the stars remain active from session to session so you’re rewarded for total play. That’s quite a decent feature although it takes several spins to hit the 10 stars!
Unfortunately we didn’t play enough to hit the Jackpot Bonus and the Bonus Spins feature also remained elusive. This made for unexciting game play as wins were few and far between. The only excitement was the announcement that someone else had just won one of the progressive jackpots and that it was being set back to a lower amount.
As a slot we didn’t quite get the excitement or enjoyment that we’d hoped for – it does seem that all the TV show excitement has been locked away in the elusive bonus rounds. We do wonder whether there could have been more to the slot – e.g. bonus tokens appearing or the slot running as a four reel rather than a five.
Tipping Point Slots is exclusive to Sky Vegas – you can take it for a trial spin in demo mode – let us know what you think.
