It is very frustrating for a US player not to be able to review an online slot from Microgaming. But this is a dilemma all players from the US face, and I am just one of them. When asked to review this new slot game, I did my best to find the actual slot machine, and was able to quite quickly. Except the “you can’t play this game from your country” barred me from actually playing the game. Therefore, this review is based on a one-dimensional view of the slot game and information from other reliable sources.
Scratch n Spin Slots is a 3-reel, 1-payline slot that is pretty much self-explanatory. Classic in its design, it has a coin range up to $10 per spin. It does have seven winning combinations, however, and the symbols are typical of a traditional slot machine. What makes this slot different, however, is that you can also win the bonus round in which Scratch Cards are activated on a second screen. Again, if you’ve purchase any type of scratch card, matching symbols is the key. You will also note that the pay table is to the right of the slot, so that you can ascertain the payouts for each symbol.
The symbols in Scratch n Spin Slots are symbolic of the classic slot, or what others refer to as pokies. There are cherries, lemons, oranges, bars, blue 7s, red 7s, and the Scratch symbol. Now I understand that in order to activate the Scratch Card Bonus, you only need to get an “any win” on the pay lines. You will be taken to a second screen wherein you will be asked to choose scratch cards and receive rewards based on the number of scratches and their value.
Another feature of Scratch n Spin Slots is the Hold and Nudge feature, which you may have used in similar slot games.
While I cannot honestly give you a full review based on my own personal experience with this slot game, I can tell you that from first glance it is colorful, different, and combines slots and scratch cards in a way that makes it very enticing to play.
