We Check Out the Bonus Rounds and New Heartstopper Feature in BTG’s Upcoming Slot Lil Devil!
There is always a breath of anticipation when a new Big Time Gaming slot is due for release. In the past few years, they have had unrivalled success in their Megaways series of slots to the point of saturation as they became licensed to other slot providers who had witnessed the popularity of slots like Bonanza and White Rabbit.
BTG has done an amazing job to continually try to push the boundaries of online slots by incorporating new mechanics, and features that resonate very well with the more hardcore slot players and Lil Devil aims to continue this trend with a new Heartstopper feature along with a dual free spins bonus feature.
BTG slots do have an almost meme-worthy reputation for having difficult to hit bonus features. The sometimes brutally long wait for a bonus trigger has now been incorporated into this slot with a new Heartstopper collection type meter which increases every time 2 scatters land on the reels and results in an even more potent bonus feature when it’s finally triggered, which for the record does take some time!
With an official release date of the 25th of September 2019, you will find that Unibet Casino should have this slot live and playable on release day.
Lil Devil incorporates two exciting free spins bonus choices that players will be familiar with, an option of Dynamite Lover (Rising Multiplier Wilds) and Be My Angel (Sticky Wilds). On top of this, the Heartstopper feature from the base game, once filled, will result in an even more potent version of the Sticky Wilds bonus feature where 2 symbols are assigned as Wilds.
Lil Devil Slot – Gameplay and Bonus Features
|Lil Devil Slot – Technical Summary|
|Re-Trigger Bonus Round||Yes|
|Special Features||Multiplier Wilds
Rising Multiplier Wilds
|RTP (Return To Player)||96.43%|
These special Wild Symbols appear on the middle reels and contain multiplier values in the range of 4x up to 12x. These can combine to a maximum total of 144x when both wild reels land in view with maximum multipliers.
By My Angel Free Spins
When this feature is selected, a random symbol is then chosen to act as a sticky wild on reels 2-5 with an initial 7 free spins awarded.
Extra spins are awarded for completing a column of wilds on any reel, with the middle reels also being converted into Angel Wilds with rising multipliers for the remaining spins!
Dynamite Lover Free Spins
Choosing this bonus option results in an initial 12 free spins where the wilds on the middle reels will increase with each successive win that they create. Using a tumbling reels type effect, this can result in multiple wins, one after the other.
This feature can also be re-triggered with 3 scatters, allowing the multiplier wilds to increase to some very high totals.
Heartstopper Enhanced Free Spins
Triggering the bonus round by filling up the Heartstopper Meter results in 2 slightly enhanced bonus round options.
The Angel Free spins feature has 2 sticky wild symbols chosen, and the Dynamite Lover free spins start with a 5x multiplier value!
Lil Devil Slot
Lil Devil Slot left us with mixed opinions. The Heartbreaker feature seems like a nice idea, but it requires a lot of spins to finally trigger, so you will really have to invest in this slot at a fixed betting level to trigger it. The results from our extensive playtest were quite disappointing too.
Whilst all BTG slots have huge potential thanks to either a combination of wilds or growing multipliers, the base game really does seem to grind along, with the odd decent win, double scatters, and the occasional wild multiplier line.
Both bonuses, of course, have exceptional potential thanks to re-triggers, but in general, our end results were in the 10x to 50x range, and our best bonus was over 200x stake. It goes without saying there is lots more potential.
Overall though, Lil Devil wasn’t one of our favourite slots from BTG. It felt a bit like a mish-mash of ideas from previous slots. It was missing that wow factor of past releases like Bonanza and White Rabbit, worth looking at if you are already a huge BTG slot fan, but otherwise, we think there are better titles for new players to seek out from their range first.
