Wipeout Brings a Surfer’s Paradise to Canadian Online Casinos

IGT - WipeoutIGT boasts one of the largest libraries of land based and online slots in the world, consisting of numerous licenced and original games together with all manner of sequels. The sheer volume of games that they produce means that they often have scope to produce titles based on themes that other manufacturers simply never get the chance to get round to, and Wipeout feels very much like one such game. While surfing – the theme to Wipeout – is not necessarily as popular in Canada as in some other parts of the world, it is still an extremely solid slot game that boasts the best of IGT from gameplay to graphics.

The background to the reels is a nice, subtle touch that initially just looks like a solid blue screen. Closer inspection allows the player to see that it is actually a wave, perfect for surfers. A more obvious wave is included as a game symbol, alongside other items related to surf culture such as the Sun and Camper Van, plus of course the typical IGT playing card symbols.

The gameplay itself on Wipeout is relatively straightforward, with play taking place on the standard five reel slot layout. One interesting feature of wagering on Wipeout is that it is ideal for players of all bankroll levels, with line bets of between $0.02 and $30 available, spread over up to ten win lines on each spin. With an excellent top prize of 7,500 coins on each spin, those betting $30 per line are in for some excellent prizes if their luck happens to be in.

IGT - WipeoutAs with the main gameplay, Wipeout remains fairly easy to pick up even when it comes to bonuses and additional features. The wild card symbol is present, denoted by another crashing wave with ‘Wild’ superimposed on top. It operates just like any other bonus symbol, although players will be interested to hear that the symbol itself also stacks and can potentially cover several entire reels on each spin.

Aside from the wild card, players will also regularly see the Surfer scatter symbol, which pays out a cash amount of its own when two or more appear, regardless of their positions on the reels. Three or more on a single spin awards the Wipeout free spins round which is somewhat more interesting and exciting than basic versions of the same round. Rather than being allocated a set number of spins at the beginning of the round, players are allotted lives, just like in a video game. An Extra Life symbol is added to the reels which, as the name suggests, increases the number of lives available. A Wipeout symbol is also added, which takes lives away. Players can continue their free spins until they lose all of their lives or reach the fifty spin limit, whichever occurs first.
