Swamp Rat Slots

Swamp-RatSwamp Rat, surprisingly enough, manages to be quite accurate with its title. The action of the game takes place in a swamp, the characters found on the reels being various creatures that would live in such a place, from the rat that’s playing the guitar, to a bird, frogs, crocodiles and even an insect. It looks like an amusing game based on how the characters look like, but it’s not going to win any awards for design. The slot is offered by IGT.

The typical setup with 5 reels and 20 win lines that so many other slots use was chosen for this title as well. The features are normal for such a game, mixing together free spins which have 3x multipliers, with scatter symbols and wilds. The slot’s top payout is at $1,400 at best normally, though access to some random progressive jackpots is also provided.

Features of Swamp Rat

While you’re not getting anything to be truly impressed with, the feature list in Swamp Rat looks solid enough. It has the usual wild features and scatters, along with free games that can triple any prizes offered as they’re active.

Getting the Swamp Rat icon on the reels will help you in one or two ways. This symbol will usually appear on its own, substituting for another regular icon and hopefully getting you a new combination by being in the right place at the right time. However, what you really should be after is its ability to form its own combos. Should you happen to land between two and five Swamp Rats on an active line, from left to right, you will get paid anywhere between 10 and 7,000 coins.

The Cabin symbol is the place where our wild Swamp Rat lives, and it’s got its own important role in this game. With scatter abilities, the symbol doesn’t have to cover a payline with symbols to get you paid. They only need to appear somewhere on the reels, the minimum number of such icons needed being two, while the maximum is five. The prizes vary based on the exact number of symbols, going from the value of the bet, and reaching a prize worth 150 times the bet.

Free Games Feature

Getting 3 or more Cabin scatters on the slot’s reels will trigger a feature which gives you 10 free spins. All the wins you get while this feature is active will benefit from its 3x multiplier, tripling their value. You are allowed to retrigger this feature, with another 10 spins, as long as you get the required symbols once again.

Betting options and jackpots

It’s going to be a cheap game to experience, a payline requiring at most a $0.20 wager to be active. The total, given the number of lines used in the game (20), will be a maximum of $4 per round.

The rewards are quite small as well, understandable since it doesn’t ask for much either. You can win 7,000 coins, but their value would be up to $1,400 only. There is also a chance to win a progressive jackpot, though the game doesn’t trigger it through symbols. Instead, it’s going to be won at random, at the conclusion of a paid spin.

Design and symbols

The fact that the action revolves around a swamp rat, or the swamp location, will mean that in the end you’re not really getting the “wish I was there” feeling from this slot machine. The characters are funny enough though, and I enjoyed it quite a bit because of that. The hillbilly look of some of those characters helps with the appeal, and you will find all sorts of other objects on the reels which are inspired by the life of people that live in such swamps.


Symbols: Swamp Rat (wild, 7,000 coins), Swamp Cabin (scatter, 150x wager), Alligator (3,000 coins), Hillbilly Duck (1,000 coins), Hillbilly Frog (500 coins), Dragonfly (500 coins), Shotgun (250 coins), Row Boat (250 coins), Cheese Bag (150 coins), Lantern (150 coins), Smoking Pipe (100 coins) and Fishing Pole (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The hilarious theme and the main characters will make it a decent enough choice and it’s a great way to unwind if you play it, especially since it will not burn through your budget too fast. Plus, there is also the chance that you can win a progressive jackpot while playing it.
