The Escape Artist Online Slot – Hit Big Wins in Bonus Round with Sliding Wilds!
The Escape Artist online slot is a cartoon-based 50-payline slot furnished by Genesis Gaming. The reels run on a dark storyline about escape artist Larry Linguini (LL) who made a pact with the devil to become a great escapologist like Harry Houdini.
The reel screen showcases Larry Linguini's Fishtank Escape Stunt. The slot gaming experience is akin to viewing a suspenseful vaudeville stage performance, while watching reels spin. The image of LL chained and strapped firmly in a straightjacket inside a large fishtank is the most awaited icon, being the Wild Symbol that could help create multiple or longer winning payline combinations.
The Escape Artist Full-Reel Stacked Wild Symbol
Larry Linguini's image as a Wild Symbol emerges as a 4-tile high stacked icon filling up an entire reel. During a base game performance, LL's Stacked Wild Symbol comes into view completely, or in part. If in part, only the tile or tiles aligned with identical symbols running in a payline can help create or enhance a winning combination.
A Wild overlay signage indicates the portion of the Stacked Wild Symbol forming part of a winning matched-symbol grouping.
The Sliding Stacked Wild Symbol – In the Free-Spins Bonus Game, The Escape Artist Stacked Wild Symbol has greater impact even if only a portion of the image appears after a spin. After a bonus spin, any portion of the 4-tile high Stacked Wilds that comes into view will slide either upward or downward.
The sliding motion will bring the Stacked Wild Symbol to its complete form, making all parts available as substitute icons for that bonus spin outcome.
The Escape Artist Online Slot Bonus Game Scatter Symbol
Larry Linguini's Vaudeville Show Logo serves as the Bonus Game Scatter Symbol. It emerges anywhere in any of the 4 rows of tiles, and in any column. During the free round, the Logo Scatter Symbol remains active; to likely re-appear as another set that triggers additional bonus spins.
The Escape Artist Logo also awards Scatter Pays of 2x, 15x or 100x the total bet staked on the spin that produced the Scatter Symbols.
The Escape Artist Free-Spins Bonus Game
Once three (3), four (4) or five (5) of those symbols appear simultaneously after a spin, a set of ten (10) free-spins will be awarded as bonus play. In this segment, the Sliding Stacked Wilds come into play to give bonus game players heightened chances of landing on payline wins.
If the bonus game is retriggered, another set of ten (10) bet-free spins will be activated.
Escape Artist Online Slot Reel Symbols
The high-paying symbols of the game start paying coin prizes even with just two (2) same-symbol payline matches. A smiling Devil, a seemingly all-knowing Fortune Teller, Larry Linguini, and an ominous looking Skull Candleholder comprise the set of high-paying symbols. The glad-to-be-of service-looking Devil pays the highest, as it awards 10, 75, 500, up to 1500 coins for every 2-, 3-, 4-, or 5-of-a-kind Devil icons lining up in a payline respectively.
The standard A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 Symbols represent the lesser paying reel icons, awarding from 5 up to 150 coins for every 3 or more matched symbols in a payline.
