Anime weddings aren’t the kind of things you see every day, especially when you’re an online gamer. But Microgaming have taken the diva bride theme and given it an anime twist with their new slot, Bridezilla! With lots of wedding themes running throughout the game including the nervous groom symbol, Bridezilla is bound to entertain.
Bridezilla is a 5-reel slot that offers 243 ways to win, with a lower than average RTP of 95.98%. 243 ways to win means the traditional pay line structure has been done away with. Instead wins are formed by matching symbols on adjacent reels.
Speaking of the reels, they are sat inside what looks like a church. At the top of the screen is the bride and groom about to get hitched. The background is the bride’s bouquet which is also one of the symbols too. Instead of the typical wedding sounding music, there is a loud track playing along which sounds out of place here. We turned this off after a while as was all a bit too much for us and didn’t really fit with the game itself.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 30p per spin and can be increased to just £6.00 per spin. This makes Bridezilla the top of the slots when it comes to affordability. You can amend your bet by adjusting the arrows either side of the bet amount. Alternatively clicking on the word bet will expand the bet screen upwards, so you can change the coin value and coin level to suit your needs.
Wild Symbol – The blushing bride herself is the wild symbol in Bridezilla which goes without saying doesn’t it? She will substitute for all other symbols in the game except the scatter.
Scatter Symbol –Wedding bells are your scatter symbol and landing three or more will trigger the feature. It is also your highest paying symbol in the game and will award a x24,000 coin win for landing 5 in a winning combination.
Other Symbols – There are lots of wedding type symbols used in the game with higher values including a nervous groom, the church, the cake, the bride’s bouquet and the wedding car. Lower values are the usual card denominations, A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9, each with the addition of crowns and tiaras to give them a regal look.
Bonus Spins Feature – Land three or more of the wedding bell scatter symbol to enter the bonus spins feature. Here you will be given a set amount of spins to play through that are dependant upon the number of scatters that triggered the round.
- X3 scatter symbols will award 10 bonus spins,
- X4 scatter symbols will award 15 bonus spins,
- X5 scatter symbols will award 20 bonus spins.
Whilst you are playing through the bonus spins the Bridezilla feature is activated and every time you land a losing set of reels she will go crazy. Read on below to find out more about the feature and how it will help create more potential wins.
Bridezilla Feature – Occurring only in the bonus spins round, Bridezilla will go on a rampage on every losing spin. You will see that the bride transforms from the demure dressed white ‘angel’ to a green hulk like character. She will then rampage onto some of the symbols triggering one of the following features. What we love is that whilst this happens, the groom slowly backs away seriously reconsidering his choices.
- Car and flowers combo – will award a x1 the stake amount as a win for each symbol present on the reels.
- Cake – awards a x2 the stake amount as a win.
- Church – awards the Bridezilla multiplier which will allocate a x1 multiplier for all high value symbols on view.
- Worried Groom – allocates one extra spin added to your total.
Whilst Bridezilla isn’t quite what we were expecting we still enjoyed playing for a while. The Bridezilla feature can be a bit confusing when you try to make sense of the game information provided, so we hope we have managed to clear it up a bit. The animations when the bride helps form a win, and when the groom backs away from Bridezilla are clever and entertaining. We think that if these had been removed, the game wouldn’t have half the enjoyment factor that it does now. Base game wins come frequently and then again in the bonus spins, thanks to the rampaging bride. Also, you can’t go wrong with a slot that offers wins on losing reels can you?
