Bridezilla from Microgaming
He developer giant Microgaming brought out the five reel, 243 ways to win slot Bridezilla in 2013. The slot runs on Microgaming’s Quickfire software, which means that it is mobile as well as online. A relatively new slot, Bridezilla has a number of special features to offer, although it doesn’t have a progressive jackpot.
Cartoon Style Graphics
The graphics in Bridezilla are very good. They are well designed and look like they are straight of an animated TV series. Slightly differently they are done in a style known as Manga, which is a Japanese form of cartoon. This means that all the characters have very large eyes and slightly squashed heads. The symbols are all very detailed and take up all of the reels. Behind the reels can be seen our bride and her rather nervous groom standing at the altar ready to wed.
Every Man’s Nightmare Theme
The theme for this slot is how crazy ladies can get when planning and actually attending their own weddings. This is a rather well known occurrence, and there have been TV shows and books and now slot machines all based on it. The symbols on the reels represent everything that we think about when the word Wedding is spoken, including the blushing bride herself. Initially she looks lovely, but the poor groom has a nightmare in store.
The base symbols are from a deck of cards, and all look rather familiar. They are sharp and nicely done, but there is nothing special about them. The theme based symbols are next up, with a wedding cake, a Just Married Car, the brides bouquet, the church, a pair of wedding bells and the rather scared looking groom all worth various payouts for up to five of them in a row. The bride of course is on our reels as well, in the form of the wild symbol.
Bride becomes Bridezilla
The main feature in Bridezilla slot is when our demure looking bride freaks out and becomes Bridezilla. This starts happily enough when the bells, which are the games scatter, are found anywhere on the reels and grant the player a number of free spins. Each time that you don’t win on a free spin, our wild bride symbol freaks out, or Rages.
She then turns into a green faced monster, causing her groom to back away in panic. She rages on each of the highest symbols that are currently on your reels, awarding you an added bonus depending on the symbol. The wedding car and bouquet get a 1x triggering bet, the cake gets a 2x triggering bet. The church gets a multiplier and the poor groom gets a free spin.
Many Ways to Win
Bridezilla is one of Microgaming’s 243 ways to win slots, which means that you have many more chances of a winning combination than in normal slots. As long as symbols are next to each other in adjacent reels, then they will form part of a winning combination. Funnily this doesn’t change the payout percentages hugely, but it does make for slightly more exciting game play.
