Redroo is a celebration of all things Australian, and from the golden shores of the land down under all the way to the parched plains of the outback, this slot takes it all in. Whether it’s the glorious beaches, the beautiful scenery, the wild and wonderful animals or the lovely looking ladies who populate the gold and green, there’s something for everyone who loves Australia in this slot.
But what about the cash? Is there more gold than green in this slot, or will it send you on a walkabout? Let’s take a look in our Redroo slot game review.
Just like the beautiful island continent itself this slot is very colourful and is themed around iconic scenes from Australian life. The background to the reels changes periodically but includes images of a purple and orange sunset over the vast expanse of the outback and a blazing hot day at the beach. Unfortunately, the lower value symbols are the generic 9 – A, though they have been given a rather 90s arcade game style makeover, while the higher value symbols include a pair of cockatoos, a collie, a handsome surfer and a gorgeous sunbathing woman. On top of these symbols, you also get a scatter in the form of a map of Australia, and a wild in the form of the famous Australian landmark Uluru.
The Redroo slot game offers an enticing 1024 ways to win, a fact proudly displayed on an iconic yellow road sign next to the reels, so you can expect the wins to come thick and fast as you play. There is also an expanded four rows to go with the five reels, further boosting your chances of grabbing the cash. Unfortunately, the wins aren’t massive in this game, and the most you can win in the base game is 800x your bet, which is an amount you can win from low-value combos in other games, but that is improved markedly when you look at the betting range. The huge range of £/$/€0.40 to £/$/€280 means that even these small wins can rack up pretty dramatically if you bet big, and the RTP is bang average at 95.3%, so don’t be disheartened.
Like many games these days, the real wins come only in the bonus rounds where big multipliers can easily turn your game around in seconds. The Australia scatter is the key to getting into the bonuses, and landing between three and five will grant you between 8 and 20 free spins, though these are dead easy to retrigger in the bonuses because you only need to land two more scatters to get five more spins. The main attraction of this feature is the wilds though because each one you land can grant you a 3x multiplier, and all your multipliers are then added together to determine your final bonus. This means you can end up with 200x multipliers or more just by landing four or five wilds at once.
Redroo is one of the very few Australian themed slots out there, which could be enough to recommend it to players on its own, and it does do a nice job of selling its theme through decent looking art and design. However, if you can get past the stingy main game pretty quickly, the real prize is to be found in the bonus rounds where massive multipliers could have you walking away with a ton of cash.
