Not quite a sport but perhaps a little more than a pastime, Tenpin Bowling is nonetheless very popular and so deserves an online slot all of is own; here’s one called Bowling Frenzy, it’s developed by Playtech and it offers players various types of free spins and stacked wild symbols.
Bowling Frenzy is a five reel slot with four rows and forty fixed paylines; the action is set in a 1950s bowling alley and each spin of the reels is accompanied by the sound of a ball trundling down the lane.
The higher value symbols are represented by male and female characters, a pink Cadillac, a pair of bowling shoes and a burger; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The wild is in pink neon and it will replace all other standard symbols to help form winning combinations; the pins are the scatter symbol which activates the free spins.
You may have noticed that above reels two, three and four there are sets of bowling pins – the sets will be partially full when the game starts and each time a scatter symbol lands on the reel below up to three pins will be added. When the set is complete the 10-Pin Respins will be triggered.
Initially you will throw a ball down the lane to hit the pins to determine the number of stacked wilds to appear on that reel; respins then start and any symbols in a winning combo will disappear to be replaced by more falling in from above – when there are none of the original stacked wilds left the round is over.
This is triggered by landing at least three of the scatter symbols anywhere in view and you’ll now get to pick from the following three features:
- High Wins Free Spins – awards 10, 15 or 25 free spins depending on the number of triggering symbols; only high value symbols appear on the reels during this round.
- Multiplier Free Spins – awards 10, 15 or 30 free spins with multiplier values applied to your wins.
- Kingpin Cash Bonus – here you’ll get to chuck the ball down the lane twice, once to reveal a cash prize of up to 100x your total stake and then again to award a multiplier of that amount up to 25x. More triggering scatter symbols mean bigger prizes here.
Free Spins can’t be retriggered but the 10-Pin Respins can be won during those rounds.
Playtech have come up with a real winner in Bowling Frenzy – it’s bright, detailed and comes with some great sound effects as well as some clever bowling-themed bonus features. You’ll never have to wait too long for the 10-Pin Respins to trigger.
