Ballytech’s “Quick Hit” series of slot games are considered a hallmark in casino game software design. These slots are always among the very first to be adapted for a new technological medium, i.e. smartwatches, as a testament to the possibilities in online gaming. Quick Hit Platinum could well be the most popular within a popular lot.
Quick Hit slots show both the everlasting appeal of slot machines as well as the milieu of 21st-century gaming on the internet. In Quick Hit Platinum, for example, you get a combination of classic fruit machine symbols like cherries, bells, lucky 7s and BARs together with the sensibilities of modern video slot machines.
It’s stuff like this: We’ve been seeing triple BARs in slot machines since, what, the 1950s at least? Qucik Hit Platinum includes *quintuple* BARs. Furthermore, not only does Quick Hit Platinum include a wild (not at all a necessity in classic slots), this game includes scatters and even extra symbols that can land pretty freakin’ big payouts.
Quick Hit Platinum contains what might normally be called a scatter symbol, though here it’s merely a generic-looking icon unimaginatively labeled “Special Bonus Games.” Land three or more for bonus multiplier of 1x per symbol plus free spins.
Very cool, innit? But wait, as they say, there’s more! Before the free spins bonus round starts, you’ll play a “pick ‘em” video bonus round. Twenty-five virtual cards are laid out in front of the player; when revealed, each shows a combination of bonus multiplier and number of spins. The simple prompt for him/her is to “pick until you match 3.”
When the free spins launch, the music goes from jovial video-game music to funky disco and more high-paying symbols are added to the reels.
We’ve haven’t even mentioned the other two special symbols in the Quick Hit Platinum slots game, namely the “Quick Hit” and “Quick Hit Platinum” icons; these are the only symbols which may appear stacked on the reels. Pile up five or more of either for the game’s biggest payouts, including the jackpot of 5,000x the total wager – in theory, up to $2.25 million.
Quick Hit Platinum has 30 paylines; wagers run from 1¢ to $15 per payline.
The original Quick Hit *slot machine* -- not to be confused with the odd dice game – begat (as of this writing) the online slots Quick Hit Pro, Quick Hit Platinum, Quick Hit Black Gold, Quick Hit Las Vegas and Quick Hit Cash Wheel. Most, if not all, of these games are available for free play right here at Casino Canada.
