The Big Game: Spin 16 slots game can be found at casinos offering Genii software. Genii is one of the newer software developers in the online gaming market. Alongside many of the smaller casino software providers Genii focus heavily on slots games. The House Edge/RTP of the Genii slots games is sometimes listed within the paytable for the newer games in their catalogue. For the older games, as Genii is partnered with UK licensed operators and the UKGC license requires the publication of this information, RTP figures can be found on numerous casino sites. As such we know that the house edge for Big Game: Spin 16 is 6%.
Big Game: Spin 16 is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game plays over 30 paylines, playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Lion”. The “Lion” symbol will substitute for all symbols other than the Scatter symbol. Any win with a Wild symbol will double your win. The “Lion” is also the most valuable symbol in the game, with 5 of them as part of a winning payline earning you 3000 coins.
Scatters– The “Elephant” symbol is the Scatter symbol. Combinations of 3 or more will create wins regardless of paylines.
Spin 16 – With Spin 16 you can spin any vertical reel up or down, or spin any horizontal reel left or right. Reels adjacent to your selection will spin in the same direction, in turn. You can start a spin by either dragging your chosen reel in the direction you want to send it or you can press one of the arrows that surrounds the each reel.
Multiplier Match Game – The reel and the direction you choose for your spin also define your position for the Multiplier Match Game. The Multiplier Match Game selects a random position and if your spin matches it then all your spins will be multiplied according to this table:
Match neither reel nor direction = ×1
Match direction up or match direction down = ×2
Match direction left or match direction right = ×3
Match reel but not direction = ×5
Match both reel and direction = ×10
Hot and Cold – The Hot and Cold feature allows you to choose a spin that is considered popular (Hot) or unpopular (Cold) in the Multiplier Match Game with other players.
Big Game: Spin 16 is an updated version of the original Big Game offering from Genii. The original held some promise because it looked good but lacked the features to make it an engaging experience. With this version you have a reduction of the original features (there are no Free Spins) and the addition of Spin 16 settings. We have seen this before in Genii games and whilst the inclusion does seem to improve the game, the idea that you have a greater influence over the outcome of each spin needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. There is no significant difference between the house edge, meaning that it doesn’t offer any additional value for money. However, it might offer more, in terms of the gaming experience than the original did.
