The Black Widow mobile slot game is another killer slot from IGT’s Australian concept development specialists High 5 Games. Like Pixies of the Forest and Golden Goddess this machine uses a special unique reel mechanism that’s quite unlike anything you’ll have ever played on any other mobile machine.
Couple this with a femme fatale back story where a venomous bride seeks to knock off her rich fiancées for the insurance money and you’re looking at a title that will catch you up in its web and spin you a seductive story from which there is no escape. In the usual fashion this game is packed full of clever graphics and top notch sound effects, making it another brilliant release from this top software company.
The Black Widow base game is exceptionally, almost deceptively, simple. You have forty pay-lines of action on which you can place your bets before pressing the web shaped spin button. The action is dictated in the usual way with prizes paid out for any combinations you hit reading from the leftmost reel. In addition to the character and poker symbols available on the grid there are two specials:
– The Poison Scatters – Hit nine of these symbols anywhere in view on the middle three reels to take you into the special Black Widow free spin round. As these appear in super stacks hitting nine isn’t such a tall order.
– Black Widow Signature Wild – This special symbol can substitute wherever possible for any other symbol on the reels barring the poison scatters to help you make those all-important winning combinations.
On each reel of the Black Widow slot machine there are special floating super stacks. Before every spin one symbol is assigned to these stacks, creating huge clusters of the said symbol on every reel. This means that you will have some very good chances of landing in massive multiple symbol combinations that can fill up the entire grid. It also means that landing the nine scatters necessary for the bonus is easier that you’d expect as even this bonus scatter has the power to end up in this game’s super stacks.
Stop in the nine necessary scatters in Black Widow to enter the bonus round. This gives you seven free spins that take place on a second set of reels. Here you’ll notice a special stop space in the middle of the third reel – this is used for the web capture feature. At the top of the screen there are three special prizes meters, one for each of the male characters in the game. Every time you land one of the male character symbols in the web capture space this will pay you a prize equal to the current meter value and add a further prize to the meter. Stop in the female Black Widow symbol in the web and you’ll receive three prizes equal to the current meter values and increment all three meters by an additional prize simultaneously.
Black Widow is a very fun smartphone slot game – it packs in a load of action in the base game where you have the ability to hit some absolutely astounding prizes with the super stacks feature, which often leads to combinations that completely cover the grid. The bonus game is like no other, with the web capture feature adding an entirely new take on the classic free spin bonus game. In short, if you’re looking for a new slot experience that still has the power to churn out the prizes, then this is the game for you.
