All of the games this developer creates use a math model to make sure that play is both fair and exciting and that players have the chance to pick up high returns for their troubles. The RTP is just under 96% so there is no reason for players to worry when it comes to fair game playing. For players who are not au fait with the Legend of Sleepy Hollow here is a quick explanation. The village schoolmaster Ichabod Crane comes across the ghost of a Hessian soldier who is headless courtesy of a cannon ball. Ichabod chases the ghost to a covered bridge where they both disappear amidst the brimstone and fire. This is a classic that is particularly popular during Halloween and has been the subject of a Tim Burton film in 1999 and featured in numerous television shows. Players will see that all of the essential elements have been covered within this slot including a great background image of the town including the gnarly, twisted forest trees.
Sounds and design
The soundtrack is a testament to true Gothic styled music and will certainly make players shiver and although some may feel the graphics may be a little outdated overall this is a really good looking slot. When it comes to symbols players will see the usual playing card symbols Ace through to Jack which are beautifully decorated with bones and skulls and represent the lower payers. Next are the crow and the covered bridge and landing three or more of these across a pay line will reward the player with x10, x100 and x130 of their stake respectively. Ichabod Crane will pay out up to x200 of the players stake whilst Katrina Van Tassel pays up to x250, the treasure chests provides wins up to x300 of the stake bet whilst the highest paying symbol is reserved for the dramatic Horseman figure who waves a sword as his horse rears up in front of the moon. The Horseman pays out up to x600 of the players stake but can also substitute for all symbols apart from the lightning bolt to create winning combinations.
The bolt of lightning symbol is not worth anything as a single symbol, however landing 6 -13 in any place will activate the Lightning Re-spin feature, players are awarded initially with three free spins where the lightning bolts stay locked in place, if players are lucky and more lightning bolt symbols appear, they are awarded with a further three spins. This action continues building until the player plays their last three spins with no more bolts appearing, or until all the places on the reels are covered with these symbols. At the end of the feature players will see the lightning bolts flipping over to reveal prizes, not all of the symbols will award winnings, but players are guaranteed to win something for this Lightning Re-spins feature. That’s not all as during the Flippin Retrigger the Mini, Minor, Major or Grand jackpot can randomly be awarded and players that bet big increase their odds of winning a jackpot as well as larger prizes.
