Do you like slot slash movie tie-ins? Well we can pretty much be certain that Microgaming is a fan of a license or two with their proliferation of games that encompass classic films like Terminator II and Jurassic Park. Not only content with looking at some of the biggest hits of the 1990s, they are now wheeling out titles based on modern cinematic fare like the awesome Bridesmaids slot game.
Just like marriage is a traditional institution, Bridesmaids uses a very conventional soundtrack to help you on your winning ways. This consists of an arcade based audio set that gives you the feeling like you might have landed in some beachfront fruity palace in the mid-1990s. It’s a great old school feeling if you love this kind of thing, but fortunately there’s the option to plug out the sonics, because in our opinion they’re a little too much.
Like Battlestar Galactica and Jurassic Park this is a Microgaming slot that relies on rich media to give you the feeling that you’re face up against the characters and sights from the movie. The whole presentation has a smooth and feminine feel that comes complete with a ton of pink in the background and sweet symbols on the reels. A nice presentation that might not do it for everyone, but it’s sure to attract the female slot lovers to its reels.
The base game in Bridesmaids plays out over a fixed forty pay-line structure that uses a standard five reel set up. There are stacked symbols of every kind to help you on your winning ways and a couple of specials to boot. Wilds will help you complete those all-important prize paying combos and when you land in three or more of the special cupcake symbols you’ll go to the wheel bonus.
Want to know which feature you’ll be playing? Enter into the wheel bonus round. Here you get to spin a conventional wheel of fortune with bonuses awarded for landing the pointer in various sectors. These range from cupcakes, which give you a variety of prize boosters, to free spin rounds and second screen games.
There are two different free spin rounds on offer from Bridesmaids. The first of these is the friendship free spin round, so called because all your female buddies from the film form even bigger stacked clusters on the reels, giving you the chance to hit some massive multiple combinations. The other free spin round is the Flying High round featuring Growing Wilds, where the stacks of wilds on each reel grow after each spin similar to those in Untamed Bengal Tiger, alongside the Rolling Reels cascading system.
To more than make up the numbers there are also two second screen bonus rounds. The first is the Boutique bonus where you get to pick cast members to win prizes, and the longer you take to find the bride, the bigger your payout. The second bonus of this kind is the Magic Moments, which is perhaps the most disappointing of all the bonus mechanics, giving you straight up cash prizes for picking scenes from the film.
Slot Professor Says
Well I have never been married so I can’t say I am a big fan of Bridesmaids, but this is one enjoyable slot from the Microgaming stables. For once they’ve managed to drop the 243 ways to win system that’s seemed to dominate their slots over the 2013-2015 period and turned back to a more conventional and lucrative format.
Whilst this slot offers a large amount of different bonus games, I am not sure that any of them are particularly impressive. The free spin rounds with the Rolling Reels and Growing Wilds has the potential to blow out some big bonuses, but in reality it can also painfully and mercilessly fail to hit. Equally there’s something lacking in some of the second screen features that fail to really ignite the imagination relying on the same old mechanisms.
However if you throw enough bouquets and a bunch of Bridesmaids you’re going to get a wedding whether you like it or not, and that seems to have been Microgaming’s philosophy with this online slot machine.
