A Victorian circus is the setting for Chance Interactive’s fun slot game Buster Hammer. Buster Hammer is a five-reel slot, with three rows and 243 ways to win. The game is set against a circus audience backdrop and the reels sit in the centre of the circus floor and lurking menacingly at the side of the reels is Buster ready to strike his hammer.
The reels themselves are framed in a circus tent, with bright colourful symbols sitting on the reels which include playing card symbols 9-A, a performing seal, a lion jumping through a hoop, an elephant balancing a ball and buster himself.
Our Verdict: Buster Hammer is a circus themed slot and when we visit the circus we expect to be entertained and you certain will be with some fun and creative graphics throughout the slot as you spin. As well as some enjoyable graphics, this slot also has three bonus features, and on the free spins feature, they have allowed players to select the game they want to play which is a great addition. It is also always good to see 243 ways to win on any slot game, as players simply need to land matching symbols on adjacent reels to earn a win, keeping the gameplay interesting.
Wild Symbol: On Buster Hammer, you have two special symbols on top of the standard symbols. You have the scatter circus tent symbol that triggers the free spins and you have the Buster Hammer Wild Symbol. The Buster Hammer wild is a special symbol as it has the ability to substitute for all the standard symbols on the reels to help create winning combinations. The Buster Hammer Wild cannot substitute for the circus tent scatter symbol.
Wild Hammer Multipliers: The first bonus feature on Buster Hammer is when we get to see the menacing Buster at the side of the reels come to life. On this feature, each time Buster Hammer wild symbol creates a win, Buster will swing his big hammer at the game to the left of the reels to award a multiplier of up to 5x for that win.
Free Spins: The main bonus feature on Buster Hammer is the free spins bonus. This feature is triggered when you land three, four or five of the circus tent scatter symbols on the reels. You will now choice one of the following:
• Play four free spins with a 2x multiplier
• Play six free spins with a 3x multiplier
• Play eight free spins with a 4x multiplier.
Although it looks a straightforward choice the RTP is lowered if you choose more free spins. For four free spins you have RTP of 95.89%, for six free spins it is 95.83% and for eight free spins it is 95.80%.
Super Seal Feature: This the final bonus feature on Buster Hammer and it is a random bonus. At random in the base game, you will be awarded a 5x multiplier and Buster hit the bell to reveal multipliers. The total of the multipliers will be added together and applied to your total bet.
