You really can’t help but think of all those animated feature films from Disney and Pixar when you load up this game from Amaya Gaming entitled Rickety Cricket.
The graphics are identical, as is the music and it’s an atmosphere which makes you want to spin the reels.
Rickety Cricket is a five-reel slot that has three rows and up to 25 paylines. We are of course, occupying the small-scale world of the cricket here and so, the backdrop features massive blades of grass and huge daisies. Our heroic cricket peeks out from the undergrowth above the reels.
Before you can start playing, be sure to pick a bet you can handle. Use the up and down arrows by Bet to adjust the amount of cash you're wagering on all of the active paylines. Do the same for the Lines panel to adjust the number of active paylines. To begin, hit Spin, or use Bet Max to play with all 25 lines activated. Use the Autoplay section to spin several times in a row.
The Rickety Cricket slot has a wide array of creepy crawlies including Mosquitoes, Fire Flies, Queen Bees, and Snails. Other symbols include Flowers, Hollow Logs, and the usual playing card symbols of 10 all the way to the Ace. The graphics look well-made, and the sounds are fairly amusing, made exactly to suit the game’s proceedings.
Rickety Cricket is a cute and friendly bug-themed slot available to online players that holds great potential for big payouts, in both base play and Free Spins mode, especially when you hit the multipliers. In all, this slot is entertaining and engaging enough, and the gameplay is fundamental enough for players of all levels to enjoy. A drawback however, is action-seekers may not last too long spinning the reels of this particular game.
Rickety Cricket is a good-looking and enjoyable way to spend some of your reel spinning time. Players would find it a little tricky to trigger the bonus features but really, it’s only a matter of time before one eventually hits. It’s worth checking out with an RTP of 94.78%.
There are five theme-related symbols including the queen bee, the firefly, the mosquito, eyeballs inside a log and a snail. The standard playing card characters 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values. Special symbols include the bug zapper, the sunflower wild and the leaf bonus symbol which activates the main feature.
This is an interesting little feature and it revolves around the bug zapper which appears only on reel one. Every time it does the queen bee, the firefly and the mosquito become scatter symbols and pay out accordingly. Without the zapper, they act as normal symbols.
This round is triggered by landing three of the leaf bonus symbols in any position on reels two, three and four. You would now receive eight free spins initially and a random multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 8x is determined for any wins before the spins start. It’s possible to re-trigger this round by landing three more bonus symbols up to a maximum of 98 free spins.
