Snakebite is a branded show-style game from Play’n GO released in collaboration with Peter Wright, a Scottish professional darts player known for his colourful mohawk hairstyle. Also known as ‘Snakebite’, hence the slot name, he changes the colour of his hair for every tournament or rather, his hairdresser wife does it for him, which is cute. Now, we don’t know much about darts, and luckily you don’t need to either to play this colourful slot. It comes with a regular 5×3 reel setup which can expand to a 5×5 grid during the bonus round and several extras for added flavour. The theme here is as flamboyant as the champion himself, and you’ll see him in his full flair when the free spins bonus round triggers.

Snakebite Bonus Features
Snakebite only has one bonus feature, but the fun is in how you can trigger it. And it’s not the usual scatters that you’ll have to look out for on the reels this time. They do exist, but they’re not the triggering kind. Instead, you’ll want to watch a pair of special symbols appearing in the base game. It’s also interesting how the developer utilised the hold and win mechanic to extend the free spins bonus game taking it even further with a mix of mini features added to the round. This enabled the developer to enrich the game with sticky instant prizes and multiplier boosters which could increase your winning potential on any free spin.
Wilds and Scatters
A golden trophy represents two of the most common symbols in any slot: wilds and scatters. As a scatter, the trophy symbol pays in any position up to 200x your stake for a set of 5 identical symbols but doesn’t trigger any bonus rounds as usual. A mix of Dartboards and Special Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright symbols do. As a wild, it substitutes for all paying symbols to help you build a winning combination, but it won’t replace the two special symbols mentioned above.
Snake Free Spins
The only way to activate the free spinsbonus round here is to land a combination of 2 Dartboards on reels 1-4 and 1 Special Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright symbol on reel 5. The playing field will then expand to a 5×5 grid and you’ll have 3 Snake spins to win the top prize. If you happen to land 2 Dartboards in the base game but Special Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright is a no show, then the game will award an instant payout per dartboard. Before the round begins, the triggering dartboard symbols transfer into the bonus round and turn into sticky instant cash prizes. Only instant prizes, Snake Snap and Peter Pays symbols appear in view during this feature. Landing any of these resets the free spins counter back to 3 and triggers their respective mini-features:
- Snake Snap – duplicates all instant prizes visible on the reels.
- Peter Pays – boosts the value of all visible instant prizes of up to 10x.
Instant Prizes award an instant cash prize of up to 10x while collecting golden darts will increase the multiplier counter by +1 up to 10x.
You could win up to 6,000x your stake when playing Snakebite but there are no other special jackpots added to the slot.
RTP and Volatility
Snakebite is a medium volatility slot with an RTP of 96.20%. Though the return to player value is set to pretty high as a default, it’s open to customisation, so check the key stats carefully before playing.
