Anyone hoping that the 2020s might recapture the glamour and fun of the 1920s will love Flappers, the new slot from Stakelogic.
Flappers: what you need to know
Flappers is a medium-to-low volatility slot (rated 2 out of 5) with a 95.99% return to player average. There are 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines.
Low symbols are jewels cut into card suit symbols (red hearts, blue diamonds, green clubs, and orange spades).
The high symbols are all expanded symbol flapper girls (each symbol is 3 rows high). Following the same colour scheme as the low symbols, there are a red, blue, green, and orange flappers.
The Wild and Scatter symbols are also both expanded, although only 2 rows high. The Wild is a golden antique microphone with a W on it. The Scatter is a “boss” type character smoking a cigar (who according to Stakelogic is a “security guy”).
With the variously sized symbols, spins on Flappers have a real visual appeal. Expanded symbols, whether flappers, Wilds, or Scatters, regularly are partially hidden at the top or bottom of reels following a spin, but they still count on the rows where they partially appear.
The base game is straightforward for experienced slots players. Three Scatters launches the bonus round.
The bonus game
Land a minimum of 3 “security guys” and players trigger the bonus game. In our test play, we landed 3 and were awarded 8 free spins.
During the bonus game, a random reel (or multiple random wheels) light up and become “active.” If a flapper girl lands on an active reel (even just part of her), she will expand to take over the entire reel, and turn into a golden Wild.
If a golden microphone lands on any active reel during the Free Spins, players are awarded an extra free spin. If your luck holds, the Free Spins game can last pretty much forever!
Why we love Flappers
High octane, high volatility slots are all the rage at the moment, but Flappers is proof that a gentler paced slot can still offer players a lot.
The real strength of Flappers is its visual design. Art Deco, roaring 20s slots are nothing new, but Flappers is one of the best we have seen. A lot of time has been spent getting the details right.
Low volatility slots tend to be designed for less adrenaline-fuelled players. We think Stakelogic has hit that target squarely on the nose.
