Can Crossing the Road Be Made Fun?, Red Tiger Tries to in Their Latest Slot Machine Spin Town!
Highroller Casino has recently added a new Red Tiger Gaming slot to their casino titled Spin Town, this slot is bizarrely set in a traffic theme with a multitude of different cartoon-themed characters that are crossing the road (reel strips) when the lights turn to green.
If you have ever played The Invisible Man (NetEnt) you will feel right at home with the “Walking Wilds” style of gameplay, with the main difference here being there are a variety of different Wilds which cross over the reels in both directions at varying speeds with a few other novel interactions on their travels.
In base gameplay, you are looking at a fast-paced 5×4 reel 40 payline slot along with a few extra special wild features which aren’t awarded as free spins but in reality, they do function very similarly and should be treated as proper bonus features.
Whilst the traffic lights are red any pedestrians (wilds) will gather up at the sides of the road (either side of reels) waiting for the lights to go green, then they will then cross at various speeds across the reels until the lights go back to red.
In the base game, you will see a mixture of Sleepy Wilds, Speedy Wilds, Couple Wilds crossing over the reels, but landing 3 of the relevant bonus scatters will trigger 1 of 3 very special wild modes – Rock’N’Roll Shuffle, Guardsmen’s March and Hooligan Advance which are key to scoring any of the really big wins, certainly in our playtests!
It should be noted that Red Tiger has turned the volatility down several notches on this slot, and with a maximum win of 400x stake you are realistically looking at a low variance slot, that said, the fast and frenetic gameplay and bonus features do make this slot quite fun to play.

Spin Town Slot
Spin Town is a surprisingly fun little slot to play, the constant build up of special wilds at the roadside and the street crossing wilds and interactions mean that this slot constantly has something interesting going on or building up to happen.
Whilst this is a low variance slot the action and line hits are fairly frequent, the 3 bonus features are where the win potential rises dramatically and although these features did seem quite hard to hit in our playtests they can be decent big win streaks spin after spin.
The only negatives really from our playtests were the infrequency of the bigger bonus features and the overall low variance, but certainly, for wagering purposes, this is a fun little slot to check out for a few hundred spins.
