Playtech has added everything you could wish for with the cartoonish Stone Age characters, a catchy soundtrack that fits the bill, and oodles of fun and lots to win. The background offers a view of the mountains, the Flintstones’ home, a pond and the reels are displayed in a handmade frame. Everything dons pleasantly bright colours out of the same palette used for the timeless cartoon series.
Symbols include Fred Flintstone dressed in orange wearing a green tie, Barney Rubble, Wilma who is Fred’s wife, Betty who is Barney’s wife, a rack of dinosaur ribs, and a stone age phone. There are also a bowling ball with pins that triggers the bonus game, Dino the beloved family pet dinosaur as an expanded wild, and the famous Flintstones’ house that triggers free spins.
Playtech have undoubtedly gone the extra mile with the soundtrack. The game welcomes you with an excerpt from the original TV series. Then, you get to play the game while in the background, a lengthier jazz adaptation of the same tune ups the mood.
Players who’ve grown up watching this cartoon starring everyone’s favourite prehistoric family will feel just at home playing this one.
Finally, fans get to meet up with their prehistoric friends again. This is because back in this series’ heyday, this wacky yet loved prehistoric posse’s adventures garnered an immense following. So, no wonder Playtech was quick to nab this one and spin it into the fun slot that it is.
With no less than five bonus features, there’s plenty of room for big wins. But before we move onto these brontosaurus-sized bonuses, let’s learn our first ropes.
The interface unfolds with 5 reels by 4 rows. The RTP rests at a fair 95.45%. One thing that’s great about this game is that it does away with pay lines, and instead, you have 1024 ways to win. If you’re scratching your head and wondering how that works, basically a minimum combo of 3 matching symbols that land adjacent to each other going from left to right is a win.
However, this also means that you cannot change the number of coins you bet per line or activate/deactivate pay lines. The only bet setting you can tweak is the bet/spin, which allows you to decide the rounded-up amount you want to wager on every spin.
Other basics you will want to know include a Turbo Mode that speeds through the spinning action on the reels. Then, there’s Autoplay that allows you to choose how many consecutive spins you want to happen while you can kick back and sip on your favourite drink.
In The Flintstones, the coin range starts from as little as $0.01 and goes up to $1.00. What’s a little muddled about this is that this does not equate to how much you are wagering off on every spin. You need to multiply the amount set x40 as if there were 40 fixed bet lines even though there are none. As mentioned earlier, there are 1024 ways to win instead.
With that out of the way, here are the highest wins you can get when you get 5x matching symbols on the reels. Bear in mind, though, that you need to multiply the number of coins by your winning stake to know what your payout will be:
- Dino Wild – x1000
- Fred – x400
- Barney – x200
- Wilma – x100
- Betty – x80
- Phone – x70
- Rib Rack – x60
- A & K – x45
- Q & J – x40
