Beat the House Bonus Features
Stacked with locked wilds, free spins with multipliers and the Pick Bonus games, Beat the House offers quite a generous array of neon laser laden bonus features. Let’s take a look at how they will affect your gameplay.
Watch out for the throbbing beatboxes on the reels as you hit the spin button in the Beat the House slot. When they land, they leave a frame behind and, if there wasn’t one already, it doubles wins of any symbol that falls within that frame.
In the base game, both the shimmering disco ball and the locked neon wilds substitute for all paying symbols except the scatter and the beatbox.
Locked wilds are fun and a full reel of the above-mentioned beatboxes awards locked wilds for the next 3 spins. Once activated, the neon green locked wilds appear on one of the reels and leave a bouncing colour bar behind to indicate the activation. When all 5 reels are activated, they then kickstart the free spins round.
Instead of activating free spins, 3 or more drum pad symbols will take you to the multi-tiered Pick Bonus game. The more scatters you can land, the more tiers you’ll unlock.
As the locked wilds randomly stack the reels they also come with 2x multipliers attached to them for increased wins. It’s just a pity this game will not retrigger.
The multi-tiered Pick Bonus feature is perhaps the most daring part in the Beat the House online slot game. 3 scatters will award 4 tiers, 4 scatters awards 5 tiers, and 5 scatters will award 6 tiers.
To move across the tiers and collect coin awards and 2x multipliers, you’ll have to make the right pick. But choose the X and it’s game over for this round.
Beat the House Jackpot
Slots from High 5 Games can be hit and miss. This one’s a miss due to the lack of a jackpot and any substantial wins. With only 500x your stake for the max payout, the Beat the House slot might not sit well with seasoned players.
