Bondi Bucks Slots

Bondi-BucksComing from IGT, Bondi Bucks has a bit of an Australian theme to it, the inspiration for it coming from one of the country’s most popular tourist spots, Bondi Beach. Since it’s a slot machine you’re dealing with here, it shouldn’t surprise you that the developers added a word like “Bucks” to the title, even though they’re nowhere to be seen in the design. Let’s hope they’re more visible in your pocket by the time you’re done with this game.

It’s a cheap game to play, and the fact that it has only 9 paylines helps it be that way. You can win $1,000 at most while playing it, but you also have scatter symbols, wilds and multipliers to take advantage of.

Features of Bondi Bucks

The slot has a couple of decent features, though they’re the ones that are most typical for a slot machine these days. I’m talking about a wild symbol which applies a small multiplier, and about a scatter which gives you cash prizes.

First, let’s take a look at what the wild symbol can do for you. The image chosen for it is that of the Surfer, and when you see it you already know that you get something out of it, since a 2x prize is offered for each symbol of this type that appears. It can be much more useful than that though, as it acts as a substitute and helps you get new combinations formed. Wilds apply 2x multipliers to the wins you get with their assistance. They can’t replace scatter symbols, but that’s their only limitation.

Speaking of the scatter symbols, they’re the ones with the Sun on them. Their name comes from the ability they have, to appear scattered on the reels, so they’re not required to form combinations on fixed paylines. Having a minimum of two Sun scatters will get you a prize, though it will be worth only the same as the bet of that round. Better prizes come when you have three (5x the bet), four (20x the bet) or five Sun scatters (200x the bet value).

Betting options and jackpots

It’s easy enough to place a bet in Bondi Bucks, not to mention cheap. You have only 9 paylines that you can activate as you see fit, and each one gets a single coin. That coin has a maximum value of $0.20, so with 9 lines active you can wager $1.80 per spin.

As for the slot’s best rewards, it promises to pay you up to 5,000 coins back, which would mean $1,000 cash.

Design and symbols

Being inspired by one of the world’s most popular beaches, recognized for the quality of its surfing, you’re going to see quite a few symbols be inspired by this particular activity. You have surfing boards, surfers and big waves, but there are quite a few poker cards as well among its symbols. It comes in a cartoon style design, which looks fun enough and should help you enjoy this game.


Symbols: Surfer (wild), Sun (scatter, 200x bet), Sea Wave (5,000 coins), Surfboard (2,500 coins), Flower (500 coins), Sunglasses (500 coins), Ace (200 coins), King (200 coins), Queen (150 coins), Jack (150 coins), 10 (100 coins) and 9 (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s enjoyable enough, with good prizes and graphics, but the feature list is not terribly impressive. It’s also a cheap slot machine, so expect prizes that are accordingly sized.

The Bondi Bucks slot machine is offered through the IGT platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
