Loaded Slot Game
Loaded is a slot game from super developer MicroGaming that captures the gangsta lifestyle and all of its blingy trappings. The game plays out over five reels and twenty five optional paylines. It is a bit lacking in the special features front, offering only a scatter symbol and a wild, with no bonus game at all. It is also not progressive, but does have a decent standing jackpot of 7000 coins which is not too bad.
The coin range is also not bad, offering players a choice of between 0.01 and 0.25 coins per spin. This makes the slot ironically quite a cheap one to play. Combine the low wager amount with the simplicity of not having too many special features, and you get a great slot game for beginners to get the hang of. Loaded is a high variance slot, which means that that the simple special features don’t come around very often, but of you persevere it will be worth it as you may stand the chance of hitting the standing jackpot.
This slot is all about bling, and shiny cars, and woman wearing very little clothing. Living the high life as they would say. The graphics are all in cartoon style, but are well drawn and very crisp. They remind me of a video game where you have to steal cars for a living.
The colours in this slot are all very bright, and there is a lot of gold trim to hint at the lifestyle that could be possible should you win. The game is nice and simply laid out, with all player info at the bottom of the screen in an easy to understand line. The paytable is on a different screen however due to the graphics being so full. Loaded is also available on the mobile platform, and the graphics on smaller devices are just as good. Since this is a well designed but simple game, it works well on a small screen such as a smart phone.
Hip Hop Symbols
The idea behind Loaded is that you are a rapper who has loads of money, and loves to spend it on cars and women and other fancy things. This isn’t much of a story line I know, but it is the premise for the game.
The symbols in Loaded are all theme based, and there are no deck of cards cop outs here. The base symbols are the luxury car, the turn table, the mansion and the yacht. Next up we have two rather scantily clad ladies, who may or may not be paid for their services. The highest paying symbols are two gangsta looking guys. The two special symbols, the wild and the scatter are represented by the 777 gold symbol as the wild and the bling symbol as the scatter.
Loaded is a bit unloaded on the special features front, offering only a wild symbol that replaces all other symbols in the game and also acts as a 3x multiplier, and free spins. The scatter symbol appears anywhere on the reels, and you only need two of them for an instant win.
Three or more of them will trigger the free spins round where you can choose one of three different ladies, each hiding a different combination of free spins and multipliers. The last feature is the gamble feature for those feeling brave. Whenever you make a win, you will have the chance to double or nothing it. This is done by guessing the colour and suit of a playing card.
