Blueprint Gaming has created an interactive online slot game adapted from the popular computer games series Worms. The 5-reel 30-line video slot takes key elements from the game to feature grenade-wielding, military worms in action.
Development was a partnership between Blueprint and Team 17, creators of the original pc game. The comically depicted worms give great character to the slot and combines original audio and graphic effects with a solid algorithm.
Packed full of Wilds, Multipliers, Free Spins and 3 interactive bonus rounds, the characters and graphics are fun and engaging. The game appeals to a predominantly male demographic, as well as lovers of the classic strategy game.
3 Crate symbols displayed on reels 2,3 & 4 triggers one of three Bonus features. The player is prompted to select one of the crates to enter a bonus game. Each game features a large worm that gains or looses health as the feature progresses. This unique feature is taken from the pc game and enables each round to differ in length.
The first is the Free Spins Battle that features two worms firing at each other to award credits. During the bonus, different worms interact with the game, such as a pirate and medic reducing and restoring health levels.
Space Trail Bonus is a Pick’Em game where the player chooses from 6 toolboxes in attempt to progress a worm through a space adventure towards a giant planet, awarding up to 1000 times the total bet along the journey. The Crate Escape is another Pick’Em game whereby players simply select different crates to gain credits and health values.
A 200 credit maximum bet and top award of 200,000 credits, the game appeals to higher stakes players. With only 3 bonus features and no progressive, the theme has attracted many players since launch, although game-play is one dimensional and unlikely to cause repeat play.
A nice addition to its already diverse portfolio, William Hill launched the game on its Vegas site in January 2012 and sits among the likes of Bruce Lee, War of the Worlds and Top of the Slots.
