Wipeout Slots

WipeoutIn Wipeout, you’re going to discover a slot machine from IGT, where the theme focuses on surfers and on the 70’s at the same time. The blonde surfer dude, with his VW wagon with the peace sign drawn in front, is the star of the game. There is a lot of sun, light blue waves, surfing and fun in this game. The design is meant to be funny, as you will remark when you see the surfer character that is the star here, and it succeeds in its attempt.

Wipeout has only 10 paylines and a total of 5 reels. It was designed by IGT, with a cool theme and with all sorts of cool features used inside (scatter symbols, free games and wilds). The prizes are only going up to $7,500.

Features of Wipeout

Though it looks like a fun game to play, this largely applies to its graphics, as the features are limited to just a scatter, a wild and some free spins.

Still, even if you don’t have a huge number of features, there are some redeeming qualities that are worth mentioning. One would be the ability of the symbols to appear stacked in some cases, though they don’t do it all the time. Still, if it does happen, you have a very good chance of getting multiple winning combinations formed.

The wild symbol is also a part of the game that I enjoyed, though I always do. A symbol of this type has the ability to substitute for any regular icon in the game, scatter excluded, so in many cases it will allow for a combination to be formed that wouldn’t have been possible without it. The wild is also a symbol with prizes of its own, the jackpot being actually offered with matching wilds on an active line.


Free Games Feature

The Surfer Dude, star of the slot, appears in the image of the scatter symbol, with the words Free Spins at the bottom. Three symbols, randomly positioned, will get you into the free spins round.

You don’t get a fixed number of games here, as in theory it could go on for a very long time. You have three lives to start with, and you can lose or win them as you progress through the free games. The Wipeout symbol takes lives away, while the Extra Life symbol adds 1 to 3 extra lives. Each time one of these two icons appears, a prize worth 4x the triggering bet is awarded. Get up to 25 free spins with a minimum of one life in place, and you receive 20x the bet as a bonus. Get to 50 free spins, and the bonus is worth 200x the bet.

If you haven’t run out of lives by that point, the free spins will end once there are 50 of them used.

Betting options and jackpots

The bets can go up to $300 per spin, with only 10 coins used to get to that level. Each coin is used for one payline, with the maximum denomination set at $30, while the lowest one is at $0.02.

You’re not going to walk away a rich man, not by playing this game. Top payouts are 250x the line bet, or up to $7,500.

Design and symbols

I’ve found the theme of Wipeout to be quite enjoyable, with its focus on the ocean waves, on beautiful beaches and on days spent in the sun, simply having fun. It doesn’t hurt that it has surfers and a 70’s like atmosphere thanks to the inclusion of the VW van among its symbols. Coral like decorations are used around the betting options and the reels, adding to the atmosphere.

Symbols: Wild Waves (wild, 250x), Surfer Free Spins (scatter, 200x triggering bet), Surf Wave (200x), VW Van (150x), Sun (120x), Ace (80x), King (50x), Queen (40x) and Jack (40x).


Is It Worth Playing?

You’re going to find that it has a party atmosphere that should brighten your day, with its various features also being good reasons to try it out. It’s just the right thing to warm you up in a cold winter day, but it will not make you rich if you play it.

This Wipeout slot is offered by all online casinos with IGT software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
