Swintt sets tails wagging with new Crazy Pug slot
With expanding wilds and a Wheel of Fortune bonus round, popular software provider’s fresh spin on the classic three-reel slot proves you really can teach an old dog new tricks
Malta, 16 June 2022: Having recently been shortlisted for the headline category Mobile Gaming Supplier of the Year at the EGR B2B Awards 2022, sought-after software provider, Swintt, has once again showcased its talent for providing portable gaming perfection with the release of the brand-new Crazy Pug slot.
A three-reel, five-payline title, Crazy Pug is the latest addition to the Swintt Premium collection – a popular portfolio of titles that takes the classic visuals, iconic sound and simple gameplay found in classic land-based slot machines and combines them with the latest in cutting-edge bonus features.
In Crazy Pug, this means players will find a straightforward and intuitive slot that’s perfect for gaming on the go, but also manages to stand out from the crowd thanks to its original theme and Wheel of Fortune bonus round. Starting with the former, the slot features an entirely unique line-up of base game icons, including tennis balls, tasty treats, bowls of doggie chow and a fancy red and gold collar.
The titular Crazy Pug, meanwhile, features as both the game’s substitute wild symbol and a helpful aid for triggering the main bonus feature. Whenever it appears anywhere on the reels, it will expand to fill its entire column, potentially completing new pay lines that could be worth up to 80x players’ bet.
However, this special wild symbol becomes even more valuable when it comes to triggering full table wins, because whenever players land two reels that are completely filled with the same symbol – be it a wild or otherwise – without a winning pay line being present, they’ll be granted one free re-spin.
When this happens, the full reels will lock in place and only the remaining one will spin. Now, if a stack of identical symbols or an expanding wild lands on the last reel, a full table win will be activated and the Wheel of Fortune feature will be launched, giving players the chance to further boost their pay out.
As the feature begins, players will be presented with a prize wheel filled with multipliers and one MAXI jackpot space. They’ll then be asked to swipe their screen – or click and drag on desktop – to set the wheel spinning and find out what they’ve won. If they land a multiplier value, it’ll be applied to all lines of their triggering win, while if they land the MAXI jackpot, they’ll instantly receive 800x their stake.
David Mann, Chief Commercial Officer at Swintt, said: “They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but at Swintt we’re constantly reinventing the mechanics of classic slot machines for our exciting catalogue of Premium Games.
“The latest addition to this popular line-up is Crazy Pug – a simple, three-reel title that’s perfectly optimised for mobile and includes an intuitive bonus feature that’s capable of awarding huge jackpot prizes. To be quite frank, players would be barking mad to miss it!”
