Sidewinder Quattro Slot
The latest game that Stakelogic is proposing, Sidewinder Quattro is a classic in some ways, though it also offers several modern features as well. It’s available in a Quattro setup, so you can have up to four game areas present at the same time, but what you’re getting on the reels is a mix of classic symbols and card suits.
They chose a modern game area for it, even though it’s a classic in certain ways, and they added 243 ways to win via 5x3 reels. You get a lot of opportunities to walk away with a good prize, and yet it appears that 80x the stake is the best that the game will do, signaling that its volatility is fairly low. The game’s going to involve regular wilds, as well as bottom and top wilds, plus free spins and a Sidewinder bonus.
Betting and Prizes
To play a game with ways to win, all you need to do is select the total amount that you want to use for your bets. In this particular case, it appears to be a slot with 10 coins in the wager, where the total amount spent per spin is between $0.10 and $100. It’s entirely up to you, if you want to spend big, or if you want to risk as little as possible.
You also need to keep in mind that you have the possibility to spin the reels in Quattro mode, with up to four sets of reels at the same time. In that case, you have to multiply your bet by the number of game areas that are active. Up to $400 would be spent on a single spin, by those that can afford it.
The payouts that are apparently available, of up to 80x the stake, are far from impressive. Individual winning combinations will offer up to 8x the stake, or at most $800 for each combo. It’s the type of reward that a game with very low volatility tends to have, since it pays often enough and it’s not that difficult to get a round with a top jackpot, at least by comparison with other games.
Sidewinder Slot Features
It might be a classic in some ways, but it also has plenty of features to convince you otherwise. There are three types of wilds inside, from the regular, to the bottom wild and the top wild. Each of these three wilds, will show up on a different row (top, middle and bottom). They are substitutes though, wherever they may show up, and they can contribute to the formation of various combinations.
Sidewinder is the name of an important feature, which requires top and bottom wilds present on their rows. Up to 1125 ways to win are available then, as the game area expands to be up to 5 symbols high on each of the 5 reels.
Via 3+ scatters on the reels, you can get access to up to 10 free games, during which multipliers can apply.
Theme & Design
While the theme is a classic, and that’s going to be a downside for some, the design style that’s used and the quality of the graphics are fine for the most part. It’s an average looking game, with symbols that include logos, lucky 7s, golden bells, clovers, horseshoes, Bar logos and the four card suit icons. I’m not impressed by it, but I wouldn’t put it at the same level as one of the older classics either.
Sidewinder Quattro has a good mix of features and low enough volatility that it can be played by casual players, all while delivering a classic theme designed at modern standards.
