Independence Day Slots

Independence-DayIndependence Day is a game that is indeed themed around the United States national holiday, which is 4th of July. It’s not a game dedicated to the movie with the same name, as some might think, it’s more the kind of game that a true patriot will love to give a try because it has only things that are considered American on its reels. To give you just a couple of examples, among the symbols you will find the Statue of Liberty, an Eagle, Mount Rushmore and so on.

It’s slightly unusual, with only 9 lines, which is rather low these days. It’s still a 5 reel game though, and it has all the great features that you’re used to. These include free spins, bonus features, scatters, multipliers and wilds. Its biggest prize of $100,000 is another great reason to play it.

Features of Independence Day

You get plenty of great features inside, the wild symbol being the main one, followed by the scatter, the bonus symbol or the free spins.

George Washington’s Portrait is the image that was selected to act as the wild, and it’s also the symbol that you can count on to award the top jackpot, which has a value of 10,000x. You need up to five wilds on the same line if you want to get that kind of huge prize. The regular symbols will not offer you nearly as much money as the wild can, but more often than not they’re going to be the ones that will bring you a profit. Along the way, the wild symbol will help out, its substitution powers coming in handy quite often. The other two special feature symbols are the only ones that a wild can’t replace.


Betsy Ross gets the second feature role, acting as the slot’s only scatter symbol. You can get two types of rewards when you have enough scattered Betsy Ross portraits. With two to five symbols you are rewarded with prizes of 1x to 1,000x. With three or more you also get the free spins.

Free Games Feature

You only get 10 spins for free in Independence Day, but at least all the prizes you win as they are active will be worth twice as much. Getting both the spins and the 2x multiplier is done with the assistance of 3+ scattered Betsy Ross icons.

Bonus Game

The third and final feature icon is the one with the Declaration of Independence. They have to appear on active paylines, and you need at least three of these symbols to be present.

Betting options and jackpots

The individual line bets are standard for Wager Gaming, going up to $10, but since there are fewer lines the total is not quite as high as in their 20-25 line games. The wagers only go up to $90 here.

Washington himself gives you the big prize, the five wilds required for the 10,000 coins appearing on the same line. Their top value is $100,000.

Design and symbols

It’s all about United States and the way they obtained their independence, so all around the reels and in the symbols you will see the things that Americans hold most dear. The US flag is placed in the background picture, with fireworks behind the logo and with stars used to support the line numbers. The symbols are all related to the 4th of July and the events that led up to it.

Symbols: George Washington (10,000 coins, wild), Declaration of Independence (bonus), Betsy Ross (scatter, 1000x), 4th of July Logo (500 coins), Cannon (300 coins), Mount Rushmore (200 coins), Statue of Liberty (150 coins), US Shaped Flag (150 coins), Man (100 coins), Eagle (100 coins), White House (50 coins) and Liberty Bell (50 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s the perfect game for a citizen of the United States, or for anyone that admires this great country and wants to learn a bit more about it. It doesn’t hurt that it offers a $100,000 top jackpot, but I’m not as crazy about its rather limited 9 paylines.

This Independence Day slot is offered by all online casinos with Wager Gaming software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
