Andre the Giant Slots

Andre-the-GiantComing from NextGen Gaming, Andre the Giant is a slot machine with a theme that is inspired by the famous wrestler with the same name, a huge star of the WWE which was known for his size, power and the moves he performed while in the ring. A French wrestler, he had Hulk Hogan as one of his biggest adversaries in the ring. Besides being a wrestler, he was also an actor.

You will find a game with 25 lines on 5 reels once the slot loads, with symbols having among them scatters and wilds, the former being able to trigger the free spins. You can win up to $10,000 as a player in this game.

Features of Andre the Giant

Players that give Andre the Giant a chance will find inside expanding wild symbols, scatters and a feature called Battle Bout, which offers you the free spins with special attack moves.

While you will only get the wild Andre symbol on the 2nd and 4th reels, you will find that it does very well from those positions, expanding to cover the three symbols. It doesn’t give you any help when the scatter symbol is involved, but if it’s about the regular symbols, then it will be able to substitute for any of them. With only two reels getting the wild, there aren’t enough of them to bring you prizes directly, but you will find that it’s quite helpful anyway.


The scatter symbol has the game logo on it and as you would expect it will appear in random positions on the reels and will pay you prizes, as low as 2x the bet, or as high as 200x.

Battle Bout Free Games

A special feature, called Battle Bout, can be triggered by the presence of a minimum of three scattered Logos. You will win 10 free games when this happens, during which you will see various special attack moves appear on the 5th reel. Collect these four types of moves, and once the free spins are over you will enter inside the ring and apply those special moves. You can win additional free spins, or you can use a Signature Finishing Move if three regular ones hit their target. A bonus prize would be offered in this case, worth 20 times the triggering bet.


Betting options and jackpots

The game asks you to use a single coin for each active line, so up to 25 total in a wager. Each coin has a minimum denomination of just $0.01, while the maximum is $2. Top bets of $50 may be used on a single spin, but you can go lower if you want to.

You have two ways of getting the top payout of 5,000 coins. You can get five Masked Wrestler symbols on a line, or five scatter symbols while using a maximum bet (200x the bet as a prize). Either way, the largest prize offered is worth $10,000.

Design and symbols

The action in Andre the Giant takes place inside the wrestling ring, and you can see the blue floor, the ropes and two of the corners, plus the cheering spectators surrounding it. The reels are also made to look like a smaller version of the ring, with a blue background and red cords going all around the reels. The white reels have only themed symbols on them, something I always love to see. From Andre the Giant, to foam fingers, hot dogs, champion belts or equipment that this wrestler used, there are a lot of images that make sense and belong among the symbols of this slot.


Symbols: Andre (wild), Game Logo (scatter, 200x the bet), Masked Wrestler (5,000 coins), Referee (1,000 coins), Champion Belt (500 coins), Ring (500 coins), Mask (300 coins), Chair (300 coins), Boots (150 coins), Foam Finger (150 coins), Hot Dog (100 coins) and Match Tickets (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

Fans of wrestling don’t have that many options to choose from, so Andre the Giant should be a game you try out even if you’re not crazy about this particular wrestler.

Andre the Giant, Wrestler and Actor

The man behind the Andre the Giant character is a French man, a professional wrestler that was called Andre Rene Roussimoff. He was born in 1946 and died in 1993. He was a hugely popular wrestler, whose main feud was with Hulk Hogan, another well known participant in this sport. He was a huge man, suffering from gigantism, which means that his body created a lot more growth hormone than it was needed.
