New and experienced online slot players rarely give a second glance to 3-reel slots, but License to Spin is definitely one title that gamblers won’t want to miss. Licensed to Spin Slots from Arrow’s Edge plays quite similarly to the new titles that have five reels and is a great addition to a bettor’s slot game rotation for the start of the year.
This slot is loosely based on the Ian Fleming series of books and movies about the international man of intrigue, James Bond. Smooth, cool and debonair are some of the best ways to describe the main character of the slot; the city scape that forms the background is well-rendered but does not detract from the pistols, Martinis, sports cars and enemies on the reels. The hero on the reels acts as the wild symbol and also awards free spins and bonus rounds. This slot title boasts both a minor and a major progressive jackpot for players to win.
It is not very often you see one symbol in a title be the wild and the icon that triggers the bonus game but the Bond-like character in License to Spin does just that and more. When a wild shows on one of the three reels it not only replaces any icon in one of the three paylines but awards three free spins. When the free spins are awarded the spy becomes a walking wild that will move from reel to reel awarding any prizes it may create as a wild; after the second free spin, the wild icon will shoot either a bonus game or another set of three free games. If the bonus game, Shaken not Stirred, appears, players pick Martini glasses and gather cash prizes until the collect symbol is found. The game will then send the player back to the reels for the final free spin and the resumption of the regular game.
Many bettors skip past the slots with only three reels as smaller games have smaller payouts; that may be true for License to Spin Slots but players still risk missing that big hit if they pass this title by. The bonus game and the walking wilds would be enough to interest some and convince a player to give a smaller game a chance; License to Spin also offers a chance at two progressive jackpots that are awarded randomly at the end of any spin played with a max bet. It soon becomes clear that this is not your typical bars and stars 3-reel slot.
Bypassing this slot as an option can be a large and costly mistake as this title has more potential than some of the new games with five reels and multiple bonus games. With two progressive jackpots, a walking wild that gives free spins or a bonus game, this title has good potential for all players to leave this game with more money than they started with. Many will overlook this little guy on the online betting playground until those same people hear how he beat the payout on a shiny, new game with five reels and multiple bonus games.
