One glance and it’s clear that the slot truly uses the film as its source of inspiration . . . in a good way! The symbols feature all the main iconic characters, the reels spin to the sound of rock n’ roll, and the red telephone booth acts as the most important symbol in the game, a nod to its crucial role in the film as a time travel machine.
Looking at the basic info, the slot combines the classic 3 x 5 reel setup with a more innovative take thanks to a Lock & Respin Bonus Round. The RTP and potential win are both decent enough to warrant a few spins, so let’s take a look at the key features up next.
The slot comes with three main features. The first one includes Bill and Ted Scatter symbols which can randomly transform into the aptly named Wyld (Wild) symbols to increase your chances of landing a winning combination.
Yet, the red Telephone Booth Scatter symbol is the one to watch out for. Land 3 and you’ll unleash the Lock and Respin Bonus which will whizz you back to the past and into a Bonus Round. Only landed 2 Telephone Booth Scatter symbols on the reels? No matter – there’s a chance that you get to turn a “No Way” into a “Yes Way” thanks to a feature that makes the final reel re-spin to trigger the 3rd Scatter – unlocking the Bonus Round.
Once in the Bonus round, you get 3 Spins. Once again, the Telephone Booth is the one to keep a sharp eye out for. Each one that lands will reset the Spin counter to 3. Plus, each symbol will open up to reveal a cash prize or a historical character to win prizes which you can keep track of on the left hand side of the screen. Match the historical character to the upgrade symbol to boost all jackpots for up to 9 levels. Max out the jackpot level and fill all 15 positions on the reels to cash out with the maximum win of 2,500x your original bet.
Overall, we’re great fans of this slot! It makes for a great nostalgic trip back to the 80s and it’s designed to keep much of the original film front and centre. It’s fun, it’s quirky and it’s simple gameplay. Granted, another feature or two might have added more value to the gameplay and higher payouts, but the potential win in the base game is good enough. Plus, the Bonus Round action more than makes up for it with an exciting concept that pays out well if you get lucky!
