If you’re a fan of the great outdoors, you will have a field day with the Playtech release Big Bear. This reputable provider is well-known for their 243 ways to win slots that certainly provide players with more opportunities to obtain prizes. Big Bear offers chances of landing wins with the help of Wild Substitutions, Scatter pays and three versions of the Free Spins game.
Big Bear is a 5-reel, 3-row slot with 243 ways to win. To adjust the value of your wager, press + and - buttons, lowering it down to $0.10 and increasing it up to $500 per spin, which will suit both inexperienced and seasoned gamblers. Click Spin or activate Autoplay to start the game. And, since there are no classic paylines, symbols should merely appear on adjacent reels from left to right in order to provide payouts.
The reels are home to prolific animal life, with the Eagle and Wolf representing high-value icons delivering 1,000 and 600 coins respectively for 5 of a kind. Landing 5 Mountain Lions or Beavers will grant you 250 and 150 coins respectively. 5 Salmons will pay 100 coins for 5 of a kind, while low-value icons, represented with playing card symbols 9 through Ace, award significantly lower payouts. For 3 of a kind, you will receive a mere 10 coins and obtaining 5 matching icons will deliver 40 coins. Wild appears on the reels 2 and 4 and is depicted as a roaring Grizzly which substitutes for all other symbols except for Scatter to form wins. Scatter is represented as a Drum awarding 5x, 10x and 40x the bet when 3, 4 or 5 appear anywhere on the reels.
Landing at least 3 Scatters will activate the Free Spins round and you will be offered a choice among three different options. Choose less free spins to receive a bigger multiplier or opt for a greater number of spins that will have a lower multiplier. Enjoy from 10 to 20 free spins with multipliers between 4x and 16x and benefit from a Hold and Extra Spin feature where any Wild remains on the reel and holds it while the rest of the reels spin again. During this feature, any win containing Wild can be subject to a multiplier from 9x to 36x.
Big Bear is a slot with a great win potential, high-definition design and a theoretical Return to Player of 95.48%. Add the fact that it is available on all devices and you will have no choice but to try it out.
