Hangover works as slot

November 29, 2011 3:00 AM by

I’ve been playing IGT’s The Hangover slot, inspired by the hit comedy, whenever I can for several weeks now. Although I didn’t see the first movie I did see Hangover II. The game has four screens you can play at once and at a minimun of a quarter a game. It features four bonuses themed from events from the movie and four progressives based on all the main characters. Mr Chow pops regularly spouting funny, witty remarks.

The characters are familiar and every time I play something new happens. The first time Mr. Chow jumped bare bottomed, screaming, swinging his club onto the screen. I jumped and pulled my hand away from the screen in surprise. Mr. Chow’s appearance is one of several random wild features that appear during regular play. You can also expect a mattress to fall from nowhere, a tiger to appear and claw at the screen, a police car with sirens blaring and lights flashing, along with a speeding SUV racing across the screen scattering wilds everywhere.

When three cocktail glasses complete with clanking ice cubes appearing on reels 2, 3, and 4 you are awarded one of the bonuses. The screen sends you to a short outake of the movie and then fills with blank photos and a list of possible bonuses you could win (the progressives, which are included every time, along with two of the four bonuses and a cash amount.) You pick photos that turnover to reveal symbols for the credit amount, the bonuses or one of the progressives. When getting a match you are allowed to go to that win.

One bonus is the Villa where you go room to room picking objects, collecting the credit amounts under the object until you uncover the tiger. The Stun Gun is another where you press the button and zap Alan till he falls down. The Best Little bonus you pick boxes until you select the cell phone. And Mr. Chow’s free games give you spins, which can earn the player poker chips. If earning seven chips you get to keep the credits won on the spins and advance to a bonus screen where you see if it’s possible to find Doug hidden under a paper bag.

The game moves fast, is very entertaining and the bonus comes often.

I usually put $30 into the game because I’m playing a dollar at a time. This week when I played I got the Best Little bonus three times, the Stun Gun bonus once, the Villa once and Mr. Chow’s free games twice.

I seem to make the most on the Villa bonus or Mr. Chow’s free spins if I can get the seven chips.

I cashed out with $72.
