Chance Interactive and NextGen Gaming are bringing back “Buster” from the classic Buster Hammer slot game. The new Buster in “Buster Hammer Carnival” comes with better graphics and bigger prizes. The game features a five by five grid and has 3,125 ways to win. If players do well though, they can upgrade that to 32,768 ways to win.
Players are sent to the circus to help out Buster in his act. The graphics for this game are very good and the circus theme is pretty well portrayed. Additionally, operators can request that special themes be implemented for holidays. This means that on Christmas, Halloween, Chinese New Year, and St Patrick’s Day, Buster can get a special outfit.
For symbols, players should be familiar with the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards. They represent the low-paying symbols and come in a circus theme. The more valuable symbols involve Buster, targets, hot dogs, and tickets. Buster is the most valuable, with five of him giving players 12 times their original stake. The game has a hammer as its Wild symbol. This symbol can substitute as any other symbol except for the scatter.
One of the more interesting features of the game is that players can set the level of the game. At level one, spins will cost between 50p and £12.50 a spin. Additionally, only reel three will have Wilds. Level two will have Wilds appear in reels three and four but the spins will cost between 75p and £17.50. Level three will have Wilds appear in the three middle reels and cost between £1 and £25 a spin.
Hitting The Big Time
Wild symbols can also activate the Wild Striker feature. As long as one Wild appears, Buster will hit the Wild Striker for each Wild. This can then change up to five symbols changing to Gold Wild Hammers.
However, the biggest prizes come from the Mighty Free Spins feature. This happens when three or more Buster Hammer Carnival logo symbols appear. Depending on how many scatter symbols are scored, players get multipliers to their stake along with ten free spins. But the bonus is that these spins are played on a larger 5×8 grid. This raises players’ chances of winning to 32,768. Plus, when the Wild Striker feature happens, eight symbols can now become Gold Wild Hammers instead of just five.
Overall, Buster Hammer Carnival is a great-looking game and provides players with a fun experience along with an opportunity to win a nice sum of cash.
