As we enter the brief break in the year when The Voice finishes and Britain’s Got Talent and the X Factor are yet to start, you might be getting a little panicky as to how you’re going to get your reality television fix over the next couple of months. But fear not, you can now enjoy your favourite TV shows when trying your luck on the slots, with a number of new games released in recent months based on these programs. So let’s have a look at the pick of the bunch.
X Factor Jackpot
Powered by Ash Gaming, the X Factor Jackpot slot is a five-reel, 20 payline slot that features some extremely recognisable features from the show, not least the iconic voice of Peter Dickson. The Live Show Bonus Feature is triggered when you land on three X Factor Bonuses which then opens up the voting process, with wins awarded for every yes received. This is just one of a number of interesting features from a slot that has clearly been heavily influenced by the television show, with games played out across a simulated 10-week process.
The cash prizes come with a very tempting multiplier across the weeks, capped off by a huge 50x multiplier in the final week of the game. There have been a number of X Factor-related slot games released over the past five years but this latest version could well be one of the most enjoyable. And perhaps the best aspect of the game is the fact you don’t have to look at Simon Cowell’s smug face while you get your X Factor fix.
Take Me Out
Created by software company OpenBet, Take Me Out is a slot game based on the hugely-popular ITV dating show of the same name hosted by Paddy McGuinness. The show is aimed at parading a man in front of a panel of women in the hope of finding love, and while there is very rarely a happy ending, the program has seen a huge increase in popularity over the past couple of years, and it’s no surprise to see it branching out into the wild and wonderful world of online casino games.
The five-reel, 20 winning payline slot boasts some eye-catching graphics and a very likeable background audio taken from the show, all packaged up in an enjoyable game with romantic undertones. The symbol on the reel include the 10’s, J’s, Q’s, K’s and A’s, the others all relate to matters of the heart such as Eros’ Bow and Arrow, Lips, and the male and female symbols. Other symbols players need to be aware of are the Wild symbol, Fernando’s Cocktail, Scatter symbols, the Bring on the Girls symbol and the No Likey No Lighty ladder bonus – things that will all make sense to fans of the show but will leave the rest of us scratching our head. As with the television program, this is a fun way to spend an hour without giving you too much to think about.
