The Paint slot game can be found at casinos offering Iron Dog software. Iron Dog are one of the smaller software providers currently on the market, but the appear to be a subsidiary of the far larger and better established 1x2Gaming. They do not offer a full casino platform, but primarily seem to be used as a bolt on package for extra slots games. Iron Dog do publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game paytable. As such we know that the house edge for Paint is 4.2%.
Paint consists of 5 reels, 3 symbols high, with 20 different paylines, playing from left to right.
The Lightning Bolt – The “Lightning Bolt” symbol is the most valuable in the game, offering the most lucrative prizes. Three “Lightning Bolt” symbols will earn you 100 coins, 4 will be 400 coins and 5 “Lightning Bolt” symbols will earn you 2000 coins.
Wild – The multi-coloured “Swirl” symbol with Wild lettered across it is Wild. It will substitute for all symbols, excluding Free Spin and Bonus symbols.
Free Spin– The smiling “Pink Face” is the Free Spin symbol.
Bonus – The Bonus symbol is the “Picture Frame” filled with balloons.
Free Spins – You trigger one free spin by landing a “Pink Face” Free Spin symbol on the 3rd reel. This symbol is still available during the free spin. The “Yellow Face” symbol becomes available during the game’s free spin. It is only available on the first reel and will grant the player 10 free coins. The “Red Face” symbol also becomes available during the game’s free spin. It is only available on the second reel and will grant the player 10 free coins and will multiply the bet by 2. The “Blue Face” symbol also becomes available during the game’s free spin. It is only available on the fourth reel and will grant the player 15 free coins and will multiply the bet by 3. The “Green Face” symbol also becomes available during the game’s free spin. It is only available on the fifth reel and will grant the player 25 free coins and will multiply the bet by 4.
Bonus – You trigger the game’s Bonus feature by revealing at least three “Picture Frame” Bonus symbols. Three “Picture Frame” symbols will not multiply the feature win, but 4 will multiply the win by 2 and 5 will multiply the win by 3. The “Picture Frame” symbols must appear on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel for the bonus to trigger. You will then proceed to pop balloons until you find one that ends the game. If you have a multiplier in play it will multiply your wins by the relative amount.
Paint is a decent looking game with nearly every standard feature box ticked. There are free spins, re-spins, wilds and a bonus round. However, there are no Scatter symbols and you only get 1 meagre free spin, so having re-spins was utterly essential here. The game could look better, but then again, the theme it is using is far from inspiring. The symbols lack any real detail and the basic theme prevents the game from becoming overly engaging. The bonus is interesting, and we certainly won’t be turning our noses up at it, but it does lack imagination compared to some of the animated bonuses that some software companies have to offer. The house edge is a little above what we would like to see. All this adds up to a fairly average slots game that probably won’t hold your attention for too long.
