Review of the Little Britain Video Slot from PlayTech
Little Britain is a new branded video slot from Playtech which plays with 30-paylines over 5-reels. If the name rings any bells, it’s because Little Britain was an instant hit when it first appeared on British television in 2003. The sketch comedy series featured parodies of English people in various exaggerated situations that grew the show from a cult hit to mainstream success.
Following the success of the show, Playtech have released the Little Britain slot game and it has already proven itself to be an instant hit with online slots players not just in Britain but around the world. The coin values range from as little as $0.01 to $25 per payline, and there are serious wins to go with the light-hearted theme.
Little Britain Slot Basics
As with all branded slots, the graphics, animations and sounds have been taken from the popular British TV show. The Little Britain online slot machine symbols depict the main characters and include Lou and Andy, Vicky Pollard, Emily, Marjorie and Dafydd.
The Little Britain video slot game is packed with lots of entertaining features, including wilds, scatters, and bonus rounds. One of the bonus games provides players with free spins. This is triggered by getting the free spin symbol (Little Britain's own heraldic crest) on reels 2, 4 and 5. You’ll be awarded with 10 free spins filled with plenty of stacked wilds. You can win up to 100x your bet on a single stacked reel. If Anne’s wild symbol appears on the reels during the free spins bonus round, she will begin throwing things and turning random symbols on the reels into wilds to boost your wins even more.
And if you weren’t already satisfied with this amount of wilds, there is the The Little Britain Wild symbol which appears during the base game and substitutes for any of the other base game reel symbols. There is no progressive jackpot in this online slot, but players will enjoy the fact that if you hit five of the Wild symbols on a spin you can win an instant jackpot of 1000 coins.
Little Britain Bonus Rounds
Whenever you get the Little Britain Bonus wheel to trigger one of the five different bonus rounds, each of them will feature a character from the show, ranging from the Vicky Pollard’s ASBO bonus where you get to choose something for Vicky to do, Marjorie Dawes Fat Fighters bonus where you’ll get cash prizes for choosing silvery trays full of food.
Dafydd’s Big Gay bonus feature involves getting dressed up to attract people, Emily Howard’s Lady Things bonus allows you to claim cash prizes and multipliers as you collect objects in Emily’s room. And if you get to play the Andy and Lou’s Love It bonus, which is probably the best feature of them all, you’ll choose objects for Lou to give to Andy. Objects win you prizes but if Andy likes them the rewards increase. In this feature there is a very attractive top prize of 1,000x your bet.
Little Britain Device Compatibility
The Little Britain slots game offered by Playtech was first released in 2013 and is designed to be played in your web browser as well as via a downloadable client offered by the casino as an alternative to the Instant Play version of the game. This will work fine with tablets and smartphones. If you have a smaller (4 inch or under) phone screen, then I recommend you test out this game before you play for real money to make sure you can see all the details.
Little Britain - Summary / Final Thoughts
Although the graphics are not the best we’ve seen as with other new video slots, this is still a must play game for any fans of the show, and for anyone else who just wants an entertaining game. Once you get your feet wet with this online slot game, you’ll more than likely find that it’s not only an entertaining video slot for British players.
I strongly recommend the trusted UK brand BGO for PlayTech slots - this casino offer new players 10 no-deposit free spins (no play-through, you keep what you win!) - and continue to look after you with a huge list of promos and loyalty deals. See www.bgo.com for the latest offers.
