The Australian outback is the setting for the base game action in Redroo - with a dusty desert in the background, the reels include a pair of pink cockatoos, a dog with a bone and male and female surf dudes. There’s also of course a kangaroo. Winning combinations are created by landing matching symbols on adjacent reels rather than in the more traditional paylines. The Uluru (Ayers Rock) symbol is the game’s wild. This replaces all other symbols apart from the scatter and really comes into its own during the feature round.
That Free Games feature is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the outline of Australia symbol which is the scatter. You’ll then be awarded 8, 15 or 20 free spins played out at a new beach rather outback scene. Every time a wild lands, it can boost your payout with a 2x or 3x multiplier.
Better still is if you manage to land multiple wilds in the same sinning combination as the multipliers are combined. Land a trio of 3x wild multipliers and the payout is boosted by a mighty 27x! Re-triggers are possible here too. In fact, you only need to land 2 Australia scatter symbols during the feature to benefit. An extra 5 free spins will then be added to your tally.
The design in Redroo is simple but works well enough. The gameplay in the base game is pretty standard too but the action can really warm up during the feature thanks to the wild multipliers. Expect to re-trigger the feature more regularly than some games thanks to the extra scatter symbols added to reel 5.
This is quite a volatile game with the variance in the medium to high range – in fact, you can win up to 33,210 times your total bet on each free spin if you get a 27x multiplier! This game really is all about the bonus round - get lucky with those wild multipliers and the Redroo could leave you hopping with delight.
