Rival Gaming has launched a new i-slot game, termed Bowled Over, at its online casinos such as Ruby Royal Casino and Sloto’ Cash Casino. The said announcement reads as follows: “You can’t spare another minute. Put on your bowling shoes and hit the lanes. Bowled Over is here!” The game symbols are derived from the game of bowling, and this includes male and female bowlers, the bowling ball, bowling pins, bowling shoes and snacks. High value card symbols are conceived in the shape of floor boards, while the reel itself is presented on the background of bowling lanes.
Bowled Over is a 20-payline slot game. The coin ranges from $0.01 to $0.25, while players can wager up to 10 coins per pay line. The Male Bowler is the jackpot symbol, while the Female Bowler is the free spins symbol. Five of the jackpot symbols appearing in an enabled pay line guarantees the highest payout of 3,000 coins. Against the premises of the largest betting parameters, this payout should amount to $7,500. On the other hand, three or more of the free spin symbols appearing anywhere on the reels trigger the free spins round. Three Female Bowler symbols trigger 10 free spins at double the payouts, while four Female Bowler symbols trigger 20 free spins at triple the payouts. Five Female Bowler symbols trigger 40 free spins at 4x the payouts. Bowling Pins are the wild symbol, and it appears only on the first two reels. However, it expands to fill the entire reel when it is possible to form new wins. When this indeed happens, a ball rolls along the lane knocking all pins down and resulting in a Strike. Wild symbol doubles payouts.
Further, Bowled Over comes with an interactive bonus game, which is triggered when 3+ Bowling Ball symbols appear anywhere on the reels. In this round, players get to choose either a male or female bowler to bowl for oneself. Also, the player is free to impart the amount of spin required for the ball, and the speed with which it is to be rolled. In this round, players get two chances (two balls) to try and knock out all the pins. If one manages to do it with one ball, he receives a Strike (highest payout). Doing so in two attempts makes one eligible for a Spare (second highest payout). In other cases, the player is played based on the number of pins left standing after both the attempts are exhausted. Each time the player goes back to the bonus round, he will complete another full 10-frame bowling game, and his score will be kept on screen.
