Gamomat Casino Slots and Games
If you don’t spend a lot of time in offline casinos you’d be forgiven for not knowing about Gamomat, you may be more familiar with their previous name Bally Wullf. They’ve been fairly quiet in many markets for a long time but they are finally starting to come out of the offline shadows and onto our screens.
In terms of their position in the market they are somewhere in between Novomatic and Merkur, both of which we’ve covered here previously.
The games aren’t going to win any awards for aesthetics but they have some incredibly solid mechanics driving them and are defi-nitely worth a look and a bit of your bankroll.
Gamomat Slots And Games
Books and Pearls – Straight into the heart of Gamomat tiles with Books and Pearls a game that offers two distinct but wonderful bonus rounds.
3 Books will trigger a ‘book style’ bonus round, you know how they work – Book of Ra style with selected symbols in the free spins round creating stacks across the reels. It’s a classic.
The alternative is the Pearls bonus – land those and you’ll get 15 retriggerable free spins with a 3x multiplier.
Book of Crazy Chicken – Golden Nights. It’s another Book of style game but this time instead of Egyptian deities it’s chickens.
The game is one of many Gamomat titles that includes the Gold-en Nights bonus. This is a side bet which randomly triggers a bo-nus game consisting of 3 boxes,. If you get a green tick on all 3 boxes you progress to the real bonus round and a cash ladder which you climb by dice rolls and modifiers.
It’s great fun, you can even go low on the slot and high on the Golden Nights as many players prefer it.
Books and Bulls – This one often comes with one of Gamomat’s bonus add-ons like Golden Nights or Crazy Chicken Shooter.
The game plays like the other ‘book of’ style slots with the Book bonus offering expanding symbols.
The Bulls are a great bonus too. If you land 3 Bulls you’re in with 15 free spins. Matador’s are Wild and they’ll stick for the duration of the spins. It’s possible to land a whole crew of Matadors for big big wins.
These aren’t easy games, they have some volatility to them but for me they stand up there alongside Novomatic for sure.
Crazy Chicken Shooter is another jackpot style side game. Chick-ens are kept locked up in a coop. If you open the bonus round you get to shoot them as they flee from their captivity. Lovely. Multipliers and cash prizes are all available and this can be a really lucrative side bet too. You’ll find it on lots of the Gamomat slots at Scatters.
Ramses Book Respins of Amun Re (Ramses Book RoAR) follows the previous slots Ramses Book, Ramses Book Red Hot Firepot (Ramses Book RHFP) and Ramses Book Golden Nights Bonus (Ramses Book GNB). Ramses Book RoAR is a five-reel, 10-payline slot which adds the Respins of Amun Re feature, plus free spins and wilds, to create a high-variance, high-potential slot with an RTP of 96.15%. In this case, a mysterious book acts as a wild symbol that helps complete extra winning lines as well as being able to trigger a rewarding free spins round. Players are invited to make a side bet to activate the Jackpot Golden Nights bonus feature, where they can claim massive prizes of up to 50,000 coins. The Golden Nights bonus is a feature that’s common to a number of Gamomat slot machines. With an optional side bet, this jackpot round can be triggered at the end of any spin.
Crystal Ball Red Hot Firepot: (Crystal Ball RHF) is the third in a series of games where you are mesmerised by magical wins in a fantasy world filled with mythical creatures, magic potions, and a powerful white-bearded wizard. It follows the previous slots Crystal Ball and Crystal Ball Golden Nights Bonus (Crystal Ball GNB). Set on a 5×6 reel layout, this game boasts a 97% RTP, where the wizard’s glowing crystal ball represents both the wild and scatter symbol. Not only does it substitute for all other symbols, it’s worth 2x, 20x, and 200x each time you see it glowing three, four, or five times respectively. Three or more crystal balls will also unlock the Free Games feature in the Crystal Ball Red Hot Firepot video slot machine. You will get 10 free games to begin with, but it is possible to obtain more by retriggering the feature. Before your free games begin, a bonus symbol will be selected at random. Wins involving this special symbol result in it expanding to cover a whole reel, resulting in some truly spellbinding wins. It stands to reason that the main reason to play Crystal Ball Red Hot Firepot online versus the original version of Crystal Ball is for the chance to win one of six jackpots. By spinning the reels after choosing one of the three additional bet options, you could randomly trigger the Red Hot Firepot feature. When all three ovens that appear open successfully, you then proceed to the next stage. A thermometer is then displayed, showing how many points are required to win one of the six corresponding jackpots. This is where those extra five points from choosing the third betting level could make all the difference between you winning the Gold Jackpot or the Jewel Jackpot.
Royal Seven XXL: Although a basic online casino game, the retro Royal Seven XXL video slot is loved by many who cherish the “old slots” feel. Cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, grapes and watermelons with the addition of the powerful royal seven are all used as symbols and appear stacked on the reels. The golden seven set magnificently against its purple background is by far the most valuable symbol, worth up to 1,000 coins for five across the reels. Wild symbols do not appear in Royal Seven XXL but the fruits are stacked which makes a win more likely as they land on the win lines. Royal Seven XXL features a classic layout of 5×4 reels and has paylines of either 10 or 20, depending on the player’s choice and stake. Bet levels can go up to a max bet of 400 coins. The max bet button automatically sets the highest level if punters wish to play this way. Standard in most online slots, wins are paid out for at least three identical winning symbols appearing from left to right across the screen. With an RTP of 96.03%, Royal Seven XXL is an online slot with a medium-high variance.
Fruit Mania looks and feels like the archetypal retro game that most players are already familiar with. Forget about complex animations and sound effects here, the Gamomat team has kept things extremely simple here. The matrix is a common 5-reel 5-payline setup, with three symbol positions per reel. Players need to land winning combinations of symbols on any of the paylines to win the corresponding cash prize. Each win gives you the option to play one of the two optional mini games. The first one is a double-or-nothing challenge where guessing the colour of a card doubles your win. The second is a more complex ladder-based game that can increase your reward exponentially. In terms of reel symbols, Fruit Mania sticks to the very basics of the genre and only offers a small selection of classic icons. It all starts with cherries, lemons and oranges. These first few fruits are the most common in the game, especially the cherries, and their rewards are the lowest at the same time. You will need plenty of combinations to reach decent rewards with them.
Sticky Diamonds Red Hot Firepot follows on its predecessor – Sticky Diamonds online slot. Themed around diamonds and fire, the Sticky Diamonds Red Hot Firepot video slot comes with 5-reels and 10-paylines and a number of interesting features such as the Red Hot Firepot bonus which has the potential to give some fantastic payouts. On top of that are wilds, scatters, free spins and even a gamble feature that activates after each win. As the game’s most important game feature, the Red Hot Firepot bonus requires a side bet of between 0.20, 0.50 or 1.00 to allow for it to be triggered.
In Roman Legion Extreme, a Roman Gladiator on Horseback commands his almighty legion to reward you with Free Spins, Sticky Wilds, Scatters and a Gamble Feature where you can double your cash. Roman Legion Xtreme has 5 reels and 5 pay lines. You can play from as little as 0.25 as you try to charge your way through the ancient coliseums to a potential non-progressive jackpot worth 15,000 coins. Features include a Wild: the Horseman character is the wild; a Scatter – you will be awarded a scatter value based on your bet for two scatter symbols on your active pay lines; Free Spins – you can get your hands on 10 free spins when you spin in at least 3 Scatters. During this feature, the wild symbol becomes a sticky wild, meaning that it will be held on your reels until your Free Spins are over; a Ladder Feature – any win will light up the ladder button. If you decide to click this, you will be shown a ladder full of cash amounts – your current line win will be shown in orange and there will be two amounts flashing in yellow – above and below your current win. Click the ladder button and the yellow flashing bar will either jump higher than your win or lower – it’s down to you to decide whether to go on, cash out for half the value or just take what you’ve won. The very top of that ladder is where the 15,000 coin jackpot sits; a Gamble Feature– any win that you may have on your reels will allow you to enter a gamble bonus. You simply choose from the options on your screen to either double your winnings or lose the lot. Maximum jackpot that can be won is 15,000 coins, by triggering 5 of a kind of the Horseman symbols, or by climbing to the top of the gamble ladder.
We look forward to new Gamomat games, even if they are often formulaic. They are different enough from the rest of what’s out there to warrant a look and a lot of you will find them to be your new favourite games.
