Progressive Jackpot: No
The beloved game of noughts and crosses makes its way onto the spinning reels in this impressive online slot game from Amaya Gaming called Noughty Crosses. It is a game that takes simple gameplay and places it in a gothic, surreal setting that is implemented in a smart and premium quality manner.
Noughty Crosses is a five-reel slot with three rows and 243 ways to win. There’s no traditional payline structure and you would win just by landing matching symbols in adjacent rows beginning from the left-hand side. Red is the predominant color on display here and there’s a somewhat eerie and creepy vibe to the game, which suits the theme very, very well.
Making up the reels is a variety of tattoo symbols, including flaming Dragons, Flowers, and some elaborate dawn poker card values. Impressive animation accompanies the winning combinations, with the roaring Dragon being the most fanciful of them all. The backdrop for this game is a complex design of tribal patterns like the ones that you would normally find in the design catalog of any reputable tattoo parlor.
If you love free spins with your slots play, then you would no doubt warm up to the bonus here, although you still must pay attention to your bankroll because the free spins don’t trigger as often as you might expect, even with two free spins events available.
In addition, the 243 Ways to Win layout proves to be rather expensive after a few spins, so this game would be even better if it offered a few more features, but it is what it is. If nothing else, it is a stunningly-designed designed slot with lots of eye-catching artwork that any tattoo lover would appreciate.
Noughty Crosses is definitely an impressive slot game and it’s good fun to play as well. The soundtrack is a jaunty, rocky affair that keeps things going along nicely and there’s an RTP of 96.63%.
There are five high-value symbols including the Noughty Crosses logo, a Chinese dragon, a lucky horseshoe and a red/black icon. There are also standard playing cards characters such as 9, 10, J, Q, K and A which make up the lower values. The wild symbol is a pair of dice that substitutes for all others except the ‘X’ and the ‘O.’ These appear stacked on reels two, three and four only and are the key to the features.
Three are two different way to trigger the free spins feature as follows:
As you can see, both features are identical and unfortunately neither can be re-triggered. If you trigger both bonuses in the same base game spin the ‘X’ will go first, followed by the ‘Os’.
