Wicked Winnings is an absolute legend in Las Vegas and in fact, all over the world. One of the biggest things about Wicked Winnings is the fact it is so volatile and you can get such big wins on penny play. As of yet, there is no free version to play online, but hopefully the company releases it soon.
The touch of evil makes everything more interesting and the fact that Aristocrat launched several editions of this iconic game is the proof that a little bit of bad can make things significantly better. Being wicked can never go out of style, but not all of us can pull it out; in this case, however, the developer has found just the right amount of maleficence and the theme is deliberately interpreted in a cheesy and commercial manner.
With the seductive temptress as one of the main symbols, the sin has never seemed so appealing. Flames, Ravens, Dirty Money, Skulls and Gothic Candles complete the concept and provide a perfect frame for the She-Devil centre figure, who seems to be promising a world of luxury and all kinds of earthly pleasures in exchange for your soul... well, not so much your soul as $0.50 per spin.
Wicked Winnings is a 243 ways-win slot with a pretty basic and even outdated layout, at least according to modern standards. The first version of the game was launched in 2000 and a lot has changed since, however, Wicked Winnings is still fairly popular and the simplicity may very well be the reason.
The coin value and bet levels are adjusted through the game commands placed on the left side of the screen, enabling the players to wager $0.50 to $200 on a single spin. The main Spin button is located on the right and Auto Spin tab is just next to it, in case you would like to automatise the game. The gameplay and the return to player percentage are pretty much the same for all of the Wicked Winnings releases and the players can expect a return within the range of 93% to 96% after an extended period of time.
In the original release of the game, the centre reel plays an important part, as this is where Stacked Wilds are positioned during both the base game and Free Spins. The bonus rounds are unlocked when 3 She-Devil icons land on the reels, but the spins cannot be re-triggered in the original game.
The Wicked Winnings part two comes with the Re-spin feature but keeps the Stacked Wild and Free Spins, only this time the extra spins can be re-triggered while the feature is in progress.
The third sequel is probably the most revolutionary, as it adds an extra reel and increases the number of paylines to 1024. The additional reel is optional and to activate it, the players will need to press their bets. The latest and visually most pleasing instalment is Wicked Winnings 4, which is linked with the second part of the series and the players will get to choose between the two once the slot is launched. The Stacked Wilds in this version can cover 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reel.
Playing one of the Wicked Winnings series online is a mission impossible, which is simply amazing, having in mind how unbelievably popular these slots are. One exception is the Wicked Winnings 2 which can be purchased and downloaded from Google app store.
The special features are way too basic and the trend continues in all three releases, however, on the whole, the game provides a fair share of small and frequent winnings.
Wicked Winnings is definitely a classic and we are keeping our fingers crossed for an online version to become available soon. The theme is quite controversial, but still executed in a way that cannot shock or offend anyone and the visuals just keep getting better with every new sequel – all the more reason for the developer to consider launching Wicked Winnings 5, but hopefully with more innovative bonuses this time.
