Microgaming Honors 2011 Blockbuster Comedy with Release of Bridesmaids Slot

New Bridesmaids Slot from MicrogamingIf you happen to be one of those unlucky-in-love ladies who’s uttered the phrase, ‘Always the bridesmaid, never the bride’, you’re in for a real treat this month as leading interactive games developer Microgaming has finally initiated the long-awaited launch of the Bridesmaids Slot.

Based on the 2011 comedic blockbuster hit of the same name, it comes equipped with 5×4 reels, 40 paylines, lucrative features and numerous scenes from the hilarious movie, which received a phenomenal 80 industry award nominations.

The first thing players will notice is that, much like the Universal film, the Bridesmaids Slot is clearly targeting the female audience. Myriad shades of pink are embedded into the design, which features the full all-female cast of Annie (Kristin Wiig), Lillian (Maya Rudolph), Rita (Wendi McLendon-Covey), Becca (Ellie Kemper), Megan (Melissa McCarthy) and Helen (Rose Byrne) as high-paying symbols.


Bridesmaids Slot Features

Bridesmaids Slot Cupcake ScatterOverall, this new Microgaming slot comes with two free spins phases and two unique bonus games, with multipliers in the mix. But from a more realistic perspective, there are only two real features to aim for; Stacked Wilds and Scatters.

The Bridesmaids Logo is the Wild, and only becomes stackable when the Flying High Free Spins are triggered. More on that in a moment…

The Scatter is Annie’s infamous Cupcake, as all fans of the movie will surely remember. This is the most important symbol in the Bridesmaids Slot. When 2 or more Cupcakes appear anywhere on the reels, they automatically pay a scaling multiplier equal to the players total bet; 2 or 3 Cupcakes = 2x, 4 Cupcakes = 20x, 5 Cupcakes = 200x.

More importantly, 3 or more Cupcake Scatters trigger the Wheel Bonus; the only way to access any and all bonus features.

Bridesmaids Slot Wheel Bonus

Bridesmaids Slot Wheel BonusWhen the Wheel Bonus is triggered, the player will first select from 1 of 4 cupcakes on the right. This will reveal one of several boosts on the wheel, including a 2x or 3x multiplier on all Pink wheel prizes,This article will show you how to download and install Kik Messenger app on WindowsPC and Mac step by step a similar 2x/3x boost to Blue prizes, a 2x or 3x boost on Pink and Blue prizes, or my favorite, 2 extra Pointers on the wheel.

The Wheel contains 15 possible prizes. 10 of them are bet multipliers ranging from 8x to 20x to start (plus potential for 2x to 3x increase). One is the Jackpot, which delivers 300x the triggering bet. The other 4 are Free Spins and Bonus Games.

Friendship Free Spins: Landing on Lillian’s character initiates the Friendship Free Spins, which features an abundance of Stacked Symbols to heighten the chance of multiple wins.

Flying High Free Spins: Annie’s spot on the wheel initiates what is, in my opinion, the most affable feature in the game. Players receive free spins with rolling reels and growing stacked wilds.

Boutique Bonus: Helen’s symbol takes players into a second-screen pick-me bonus game where player’s click through 12 gift boxes, each containing one of the female characters from Bridesmaids. Once a player matches two Bridesmaids, a prize is awarded, and the longer it takes to make a match, the higher the prize multiplier will be.

Magic Moments Bonus: The cute little puppies symbol triggers this bonus game, wherein 10 Polaroid-style pictures from the movie are shown. The player chooses several “magic moments” to reveal an instant prize beneath each, and of course gets to view those short but memorable scenes from the film.
