Pony Tale Slot Machine Review

Pony-Tale-SlotThe list of brand new slot games from WMS Gaming keeps on getting bigger and bigger and with the launch of their brand new Pony Tale slot game that list has just got even bigger! One thing that you are going to notice about this new slot is that it does have a lot of similarities to the Bier Haus slot which has pride of place on many land based casino floors, and as such if you have enjoyed playing that slot then you will certainly enjoy the way this slot game plays and pays.

This slot can be something of a high paying slot game due in no small part to the stacked reel symbols and the way in which the free spins round can be triggered. When playing off the bonus game the scatter symbols that trigger the free spins round are turned into wild symbols and remain locked into place during the free spins round.

Design and Theme

The Pony Tale slot game has been designed around a horse racing theme, and as such you are going to find located on its reels a set of horse racing based reel symbols along with the often used Playing Card suit symbols, those latter named reel symbols are the lower paying ones.

The slot comes with its own resident wild symbol which is the White Horse reel symbol, that symbol will of course stand in and help complete other winning combinations with the exception of the scatter symbol winning payouts and bonus game triggering combinations.

This is one of the many WMS Gaming multi payline slot games and that one comes with fixed coin values of 0.01, however in certain jurisdictions you may find additional coin value settings on offer.

Basic Features

The main bonus game which is what you will be looking to trigger when playing this slot game is a set of free spins. The way in which they are triggered is slightly different to most other free spins awarding slots in as much as you need to get at least five of the scatter symbols spinning in.

The scatter symbols are all of the Horse Jump reel symbols of which there are quite a few of them on each reel, in fact on some reels you will find they are stacked so you could get quite a lot of them spinning in an triggering the bonus game.

The more scatter that spin in the more free spins out will end up playing off and you can win an initial set of 80 free spins if you get the maximum number of free spins spinning in and triggering the bonus game.

As the free spins are playing off all of the scatter symbols that triggered the bonus game are turned into wild symbols, along with any scatter symbols that re-trigger the feature and as soon as they have spun in and been turned into wild symbols they will remain locked into position on the slot games screen.

Our Thoughts

Playing any slot machine such as this Pony Tale slot game on which you will be hoping to spin in as many scatter symbol as you can to be awarded with the bonus game can often result in you feeling a little downhearted as you may have to play off a large number of free spins until you get to a point in your playing session when you get enough of them spinning in to trigger the bonus game.

In fact you can often experience lots of near misses and when that happens even the most mild mannered slot machine player can start to get a little annoyed! However, as sure as night follows day eventually you should spin in enough scatter symbols to see that free spins bonus game being awarded to you.

So always keep a level head when playing this slot game for at the end of the day it comes with something of a large payout percentage attached to it and that should ensure that over time you will always get your fair share of winning combinations spinning in, even if those winning combinations are formed via the base game and not the bonus free spins bonus game.

Having seen this slot game playing out and having played the Bier Haus slot game we do have to say this slot is something of a cloned slot in regards to comparing it to the Bier Haus slot game, and as such if you do see this slot and that Bier Haus slot game on offer at the land based casino you are visiting and you like the way one of them plays and plays then you are guaranteed to enjoy the way the other slot has been designed.

All in all you should get plenty of fun and entrainment when playing this slot game, but do be aware that due to the variance of this slot you will experience both winning and losing sessions when playing it and as such always keep a level head when playing it and only every spend money you can afford to lose when playing it, as every session you have is not going to be a winning one.
