Review

This time around we are taking a look at IGT’s unusual video pokie Black Widow. Don’t jump to conclusions and assume the pokie has anything to do with spiders, yet a dark, gothic murder story line. Sometimes the all singing all dancing video pokies take centre stage, however we are eager to learn more about this black sheep of a game from International Game Technology. The game is one of a kind in terms of the variances in sizes it offers: ranging from 15 pay lines all the way up to 40! As a result Black Widow is basically for low-to-medium denomination stakes, so perfect for players who are looking out for an exciting gaming experience.

The theme of the pokie game is gothic and dark and will definitely fascinate players as they spin. As is the norm with all modern IGT releases, there is no shortage of high quality graphics, animations and sound effects. The main character in this pokie game is the Black Widow, who stalks her prey and awaits the right time to strike her enemies, just like her spider counterpart. Players should look out for any of the games main characters which pay in much larger amounts than their card symbol neighbours.

 

Bonus Rounds and Features

Being a highly prized IGT project, the pokie offers its players several special features during the sub game. First up is the Selective Stacking feature which locks the wild symbol on every spin for larger payouts and amazing game play. The game’s wild is represented the ‘husband icon’ and substitutes for every other symbol within the game.

Black Widow also offers a stunning Free Games bonus round which is triggered by spinning three rows of The Skull Scatters on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. The bonus starts off with seven free spins and has the potential to reward the players with a maximum of thirteen re-triggers.

Whenever players spin a male character icon on the center reel of the screen, it is captured, just like a spider would capture their prey and juicy credits are received as a prize. These credits increase with every additional capture so spinning the male characters can really pay dividends. The largest payouts in the game are seen when spinning the ultra-lucrative Black Widow symbol in abundance, with the potential to win up to 40,000 coins! Each feature and bonus round is played out with an exciting animation, giving players the sense of a real adventure when spinning Black Widow.

 

Final Say

The docile spin rate in addition to the dark theme makes for a game that will have players at the mercy of the Black Widow. Get involved in this dark video pokie now at Mr Green Casino.
