Shopping Spree II Slot
Shopping Spree II – Video Slot Review
From designer clothing to fine jewelry, enjoy the newest RTG progressive video slot … $hopping $pree II. With a set value of $2.25 per spin to get in on the chance to win the progressive jackpot, this nine line, five reel slot will award you the progressive jackpot win if you’re lucky enought to find four diamond rings and a $20 sale tag on a payline.
The wild symbol of the game is a “SALE” tag. This symbol is found on reel three only and substitutes for all other symbols with the exception of the scatter symbol. When the wild symbol appears in a winning combination, it flips to reval a multiplier for your wins of two times, three times or five times your triggering bet.
The $hopping $preeII symbol is the scatter of the game. Three symbols appearing anywhere on your screen will trigger nine free spins. If four scatters appear, you’ll receive twenty coins and the free spins and five scatters will award you 200 coins plus the free spins. During free spin play, 100, 200, 300, 400, & 500 point symbols appear on reels one to five, respectively. These point values are added to a bonus tally which is then played at the end of regular free spin play.
During bonus round play reel three is a; stationary; wild “SALE” tag symbol. Bonus round free spin multipliers are as follows:
If you collect less than 100 points during regular free spin play, you’re awarded a consolation prize of 100 times your triggering bet.
100 points gives you a 40 time multiplier
200 points gives you a 20 time multiplier
300 points gives you a 10 time multiplier
400 points gives you a 5 time multiplier, and
500 – 900 points gives you a 3 time multiplier
Beginning with $40, I got in a total of 48 spins before I lost it all. Within those 48 spins the wild symbol completed a total of six winning combinations for me with three having a two time multiplier and three having a three time multiplier. Determined to trigger the free spin feature, I deposited another $50. During this play, within a total of 91 spins, the wild symbol completed a total of 12 winning combinations for me (7 with a 2x multiplier, 2 with a 3x multiplier & 3 with a 5x multiplier). The free spin feature did trigger for me on my 34th spin. During free spin play, I won $15.50 and during bonus play I won $45 for a total win of $60. At the end of my 91st spin, I ended play breaking even at $90
Being a progressive jackpot slot, this game requires a higher purse to play with, not only for the amount per spin, but also that it is; in my opinion; a high variance slot. I really like the wild symbol’s “random” multiplier and that it can appear on reel three in all positions, and the free spin with a bonus round is a plus as well. I would play this slot again when I have a large enough purse to do so.
