Microgaming presents Sidewinder: the exciting video with up to a whopping 1125 ways to win, Horizontal Reels and features galore! If you like your online slots feature-packed then you’ll LOVE this dynamic, rollercoaster of a game. Hold on tight…
This game consists of 5 reels, 3 rows and an additional horizontal reel on the top and the bottom with 3 symbol positions each, creating a 3-5-5-5-3 reel area configuration. Intriguing! You may come across Wilds, Free Spins and a Sidewinder Feature that can increase your Ways to Win. Nice!
How to play
Use the up and down arrows to adjust your bet size or select a bet value directly. When you’re happy with your bet, click SPIN and get your show on the road. If you’d rather sit back and watch the game unfold, click AUTOPLAY and the reels will spin automatically a set number of times.
You’ll find 3 different Wild symbols in this game:
- Regular Wilds: only appear on horizontal reels
- Top Wilds: in the base game, they only appear on reel 2 and on the bottom horizontal reel
- Bottom Wild: in the base game, they only appear on reel 4 and the top horizontal reel
All Wilds substitute for all symbols except the Free Spins symbol.
During this bonus, a Top Wild symbol activates the top horizontal reel and a Bottom Wild symbol activates the bottom horizontal reel, increasing the Ways and allowing for additional Wilds to stop. 1 activated horizontal reel increases the Ways to Win to 576, whereas 2 horizontal reels increase the Ways to 1125. The Sidewinder feature can only be activated by either Wild symbols or Free Spins symbols, not both.
Last but not least, a slot game staple: the Free Spins bonus! In the base game, Free Spins symbols only appear on reels 2 and 4 and the horizontal reels. When Free Spins symbols stop on reels 2 and 4, both of the horizontal reels will be activated and spin. In the base game, the horizontal reels triggered by the Free Spins symbols contain only Free Spins symbols. 3 Free Spins symbols award 6 Free Spins and 4 Free Spins symbols award 10 Free Spins. During Free Spins, both horizontal reels are active and the game is played with 1125 Ways. Regular Wild symbols and Free Spins symbols only appear on the horizontal reels during the bonus. If Regular Wild symbols stop on the same position on both horizontal reels, Expanding Wild symbols are created, covering the reel in between them with Regular Wilds. An extra spin will be awarded during the bonus for each Free Spins symbol that stops. Best of luck!
