I'm a Celebrity Get me out of here! Slot Free Spins and Review
This Bush Tucker is pukka
It’s hard to believe that I'm a Celebrity... Get me out of here! has been a yearly TV fixture since its inception in 2002. But here we are 17 years later and the show is about to air its 17th season. The shows popularity, helped by the entertaining Geordie twosome that is Ant and Dec, has inspired Microgaming to create the 32Red exclusive I'm a Celebrity Get me out of here! slot game.
Unless you have literally been trapped in the outback for an insurmountable amount of time, then you will most likely know what this show is about. To sum up, a bunch of celebrities (well, they certainly have questionable celebrity status at times) are dropped into the jungle and have to live in a camp style setting. Isolated from the outside world and away from all of their usual comforts, their antics are filmed for the viewers entertainment. There are tantrums, arguments and all sorts of meltdowns that make for some gripping reality TV. Hence why millions tune in to this show every week.
With such a strong brand behind it, we can’t imagine Microgaming’s latest slot being less than ace. But could this be the slot equivalent of one of the dreaded Bush Tucker trials? Let’s find out in our full I'm a Celebrity Get me out of here! slot review.
Ease of PlayIf you’re a fan of the TV show and want to see what the slot is about then you are in for a treat - this is an excellent slot for the first time player. Controls are simple and the 30 paylines are easy enough to pick up. Our only slight grievance in terms of difficulty is the sheer number of features on offer. Granted it makes for some varied and exciting gameplay (especially for the more experience spinner), but for casual players - it may be on the tricky side to learn all the nuances. If you do get stuck however, there’s always the paytable which is within a clicks distance.
Graphics and AnimationOnce again, the fans of the show are going to love the look of the slot - it’s as if you were dropped into the jungle yourself! And of course, there are many references to events from the show like the dreaded creepy crawlies and the eventual winners seat. Ant and Dec also feature taking up two separate symbols - well they are the stars after all. In terms of symbols, the slot features the show logo as the wild card, which will substitute for other symbols in a winning payline.
There are also two bonus symbols - one of which will activate the I'm a Celebrity Get me out of here! free spins and the other which activates the Bushtucker Trial bonus.
Bonus FeaturesThe slot is packed with features and that’s to be expected considering it was created by Microgaming. The first feature to keep an eye out on while your spinning in the base game is the Critter Chaos feature. At random times a critter may enter the camp causing a commotion that will award you 5 free spins. Why can’t the appearance of the bugs always be so rewarding? Anyway, during these free spins, random wilds will be placed on to the reels and held in place.
The I'm a Celebrity Get me out of here! slot free spins is one of many highlights - and is activated with the appearance of three or more scatter symbols. The actual round is called the Kiosk Keith Free Spins - and fans of the show will know all about him. You will be awarded a total of 10 free spins with Microgaming’s famous rolling reels - which are a fancy name for tumbling reels. Each successive win will increase a multiplier making additional wins even more valuable - it’s a feature seen in games like Gonzo’s Quest and Thunderstruck 2.
The Bushtucker Trial Bonus is activated with the collection of five golden stars throughout the game. In this round, you can win up to 450 times your total staked bet. You will also get to feel what it’s like being one of the celebs in the jungle as you will need to complete trials to earn golden stars. Watch out for the 2 campmates that can’t take the heat - selecting both will end the feature. You can also win gold stars with the help of a public vote.
Our VerdictOnce again, Microgaming prove they are the kings of TV and movie adaptations. Was there really any doubt that they would mess up the I'm a Celebrity Get me out of here! slot? And just like their impressive Saturday Night Takeaway slot - this game is full of delightful references that are sure to please the fans. And if you’re not a fan, the game still packs plenty of features and is generous in its rewards. We suggest this is one bush you should brave - just remember to grab the bug spray...
