The Monkey Summary
Foxin’ Wins comes from slot developers NextGen Gaming, and is probably their most famous release. Think of the Gonzo’s Quest slot and NetEnt and you’ll be in the right ball park, but with this other games developer.
It is based around an aristocratic fox and his best efforts to try and catch a rather mischievous leprechaun – as you have probably gathered, this is not a serious slot. Best known for its Superbet feature, the slot has some interesting game mechanics.
The reels are set against a backdrop of the fox’s mansion house with plush furniture and a rich décor setting the tone. 3D animations make up the graphics while the soundtrack is only mildly irritating – which is good news. This game is in the cute zone like Fluffy Favourites and emoticoins. It’s those pups that do it!
Bets start at £0.01 in Foxin’ Wins slot and go up to £2.00. There are 5 reels, 3 rows and you have 25 pay-lines to choose from before you start spinning, so this is more of your standard kind of set up compared to something like the Diamond Mine slot machine but it’s no worse for it.
The reels are populated with cartoon-style icons based around the millionaire fox and his seemingly lavish lifestyle, and they include a gold fountain, Mrs Foxin behind the wheel of a red sports car, a big roll of banknotes and the Foxin’ mansion – as well as the 9, 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards
The Wild symbol here is made up of Mr Foxin’ himself looking rather dapper (a man after my own heart). This symbol will stand in for all other icons on your reels except for the Scatters to complete winning combinations. Plus, if you manage to land 5x of the Foxin’ Wilds in a row you could win 2,000 coins.
Meanwhile scatter or bonus symbol in Foxin’ Wins slot is the Pot Of Gold icon.
Foxin Wins is one of those super famous games like the Thunderstruck 2 slot and a lot of that is down to its Superbet Feature.
During base game play, Foxin’s somewhat cheeky offspring the Fox Pups will jump onto the reels and turn standard symbols into Wilds. In the Free Spins you’ll see the more often Pups and they will add extra Wilds to the game.
If you want to upgrade the number of the Wilds (and Pups) on the reels in Foxin’ Wins slot for bigger and better wins, then you should try the Superbet option.
Players can turn on this feature using the switch on the right hand side of the reels. Select Superbet level 1 and the Fox Pups will appear on reels 2, 3 or 4. Select Superbet level 2 and the playful whippersnappers will appear across all 5 of the reels reels.
Unfortunately you do have to pay for privilege: Level 1 will cost 10 extra credits, while Level 2 costs you a further 25 credits.
To set off the Foxin’ Free Spins bonus round you will need to land 3x or more of the Scatter symbols. Next you will receive 10 free spins with all a x2 multiplier on all of your pay outs. Double pays are not to be sniffed at!
Interestingly, Foxin’ Wins also includes two Random Bonus features:
This feature is set off at any time after a cash pay out, and you will receive extra funds on top of the cash you already won, courtesy of the generous millionaire vulpine.
Leprechaun Shake Down
Now this is where things get really silly! This feature is also triggered at random, next players will be taken to a second screen where they must chase a cheeky leprechaun across the screen. Once you catch him, you will turn him upside down and shake the poor chap until he rewards you with extra coins.
The Monkey Verdict
The random bonus features are both ludicrous and lucrative while the Superbet option gives this slot something that makes it stand out from the rest; allowing you to control the level of wins (and of course the losses) that you make. It’s a monkey favourite.
