If you were a child in the 90s, then there is every possibility that you played one of the various incarnations of Worms. This slot machine game was launched by Blueprint Gaming to honour that original video game series about a bundle of worms who go to war with one another with comedy weapons and gags guaranteed. Designed with permission from Team 17, Worms is played over 5 reels and 50 paylines, so expect wagers to cost at least 50p per spin, with so rising as high as £100 per spin. Worms offers up a non-progressive jackpot which is worth a cool 1,000 coins in total, so you do get value for money with this hilarious slot.
Wild symbols appear stacked in Worms, and they appear frequently. These wilds can substitute themselves for all standard paying symbols in the slot.
Keep an eye out for the Crate Bonus symbols. These weapons crates (in honour of the original video game) can allow players to select 1 of 3 bonus features when they appear on the second, third and fourth reels at once.
There is an Angry Scot Worm in the Crate Bonus which can trigger a Crate Escape Bonus, too. This symbol can see players enjoy a click and win bonus, whereby a weapon, first aid, or cash prize is paid out. Once a worm’s health reaches zero, the bonus ends. If players select the Space Worm, they will end up teleporting into space, where they can win prizes until their worm takes a hit. The last bonus is the Free Spins Battle Bonus, with the customary Drill Sergeant worm. Here, players can keep spinning the reels until their worm’s health reaches zero. Pirate Worms deplete your health, although you can win health back with the Nurse Worm.
You get what you pay for, and although Worms is a little costly to play, it certainly delivers in terms of bonuses. If you happen to be a fan of the original video game series, Worms is a game which will tick all of your boxes.
