Heavy Metal™ is an online video slot with a science fiction theme that revolves around guns, bullets, assassins and action. The game features three reels and three paylines, deviating from the typical single payline for a three-reel game.
About Heavy Metal™
The maximum jackpot is a respectable $20,000, which is actually quite high for its maximum bet of $15. You can bet one coin per line, with a maximum of three coins per spin. There is no scatter symbol, as this is a three-reel game, but there is a wild symbol that can complete combinations and combine for a three-in-a-row payout. Rather than having a standard multiplier, the game uses a somewhat more complex system that uses all of the symbols as potential multipliers, with multiplicative effects ranging from x2 to x640. Also, like other fruit machines, this game allows you to hold and nudge your spin results, making it easier to turn close wins into realized payouts. If you like fruit machines, but want to play something with a greater element of strategy, be sure to try out Heavy Metal.
The free-spin game works a little differently than in other games. Instead of getting three of a scatter symbol and activating the game, you earn small diamonds when you start playing the game. Those diamonds slowly add up until you get three on payline one, at which point you are awarded three free spins. The free spins can be used in conjunction with the multiplicative bonuses on all wins.
Every symbol is also a multiplier in Heavy Metal. The question mark symbols multiply anything that you win by two and the sevens multiply anything that you win by 640. Because of this, the wild symbol doesn’t have a doubled bonus; its inherent bonus is the only multiplicative factor in a win. By using the nudge and hold features, you can take advantage of wild symbols when you get them. Also, the additional control that you have over each spin makes it easier to predict and secure extra sevens for wins that are multiplied by 640.
