Something that is totally unusually is that betting favours high rollers rather than those players of a low limit, however the fast-paced action starts from just 20p per spin and this rises sharply to a maximum bet of £100 per spin. The pay lines in Flip the Chip are fixed and there are only a few low limit options before the sins become quite pricey. The classic styled graphics are very uninspiring considering all the design opportunities there are. But, the fruit-filled reels are functional and generic, but the music also lets this slot game down, as it would be more at home as hold music from a telephone queue system, although to be fair it gives a little ambience to the game. The reels are fast, and the action is quick to develop but as this is a medium to high volatility slot machine the wins can be well spaced out. However, to the slots advantage, the real cash prices are multiplied by the players total bet not the line bet, and in addition to this the symbols can also stack to give multiple wins. So, whilst the stakes can appear on the high side the pay outs can be extremely generous.
Players will come across a selection of five fruits that will provide pay outs that range from x3 – x40 of the bet. There are also the symbols that are depicted by a single bar, double bar and triple bar and the bars offer prize pay outs that range from x5 - x100. The scatter is represented by the casino chip and this is not limited to pay lines it can pay from anywhere on the reels.
The top paying symbol in Flip the Chip is the red 7 and this will pay from x20 – x500 of the players total bet, which means that the game's top fixed jackpot stands at a massive 50,000-coin prize. Players that land three or more of the scatter casino chips symbols anywhere on their reels will activate the game’s bonus round where players are initially rewarded with 5 free spins with up to x2 multipliers on any wins, this can increase though when players decide to “flip the chip.”
When the scatters land on the reels they are transformed and transform into stacked chips. By flipping one chip from each reel players will be provided with an extra spin, or the much-coveted increased multipliers. In this round the player could win as much as 50 free spins and a potential x8 multiplier.
When it comes down to the gameplay there is not difference with the free spins apart from the music being louder to provide more drama, however the prize potential increases significantly and the wild which is represented by the jester’s hat is added to bump up the win lines.
