We’d all love to get the chance to win some extra cash while playing a slot game. However, there is a cool clue in the title that points to the theme, too. Once you have loaded the game, you’ll see a small boy with a cap on, holding his bag of papers. Perhaps a cry of ‘Extra, Extra!’ will make sense of the title.
The icons on the reels have a classic feel too, such as the news van and a hut selling papers. But can you find enough matching icons to trigger any prizes to fall your way?
This game comes from NextGen and has five reels in play. It is generous with the paylines too, offering an impressive collection of 50 of them.
The game offers lots of coins to choose from. These range from just one cent, but they go far higher to reach $10 apiece too if you wish.
You’d expect to see a few newspapers in a slot with this theme. You won’t be disappointed either, especially since the newspaper boasts the headline WILD on it. This can replace virtually everything else. Only the image of newspapers going over the printing presses – saying SCATTER as they do so – cannot be subbed by the wild.
The first thing to note is the Extra Wild feature. This is random, with one wild potentially added to any of the middle three reels after a base game spin. Once in the free games, an Extra Wild can be added to any of the reels.
Next up is a re-spin feature. If two or more scatters appear anywhere in the base game, they are held in place and everything else spins again. This means you can try and get more scatters.
In doing so, there could be a chance of some free games too. You need three, four, or five scatters to achieve this, hence why the re-spin is good if you get two or more. Those quantities will win you eight, 12, or 20 free games if those amounts occur following the re-spin. Otherwise, you can only win 20 free games by finding five scatters at the end of any regular game.
Extra! Extra! This is one slot you’ll want to read about!
