Bounty Hunt by NextGen is a slot game set in a scary dystopian future in a mega city, where you, the lethal Bounty Hunt, are the last line between beating a bunch of criminals or turning the streets over to despair…
Just like the Renegades slot, this game is all about Girl Power as we join our cat-suited fearless bounty hunter on her latest mission.
If you are a fan of shooting games or where you are chasing down the bad guys, then this slot game might be on the top of your “to try” list. This is a slot where there’s constant action in the base and bonus features and its pretty full on, which makes for a high-tempo reel ride into the (hopefully) far distant future!
Look and Feel
This game is designed to set your nerves on edge, with a tense and discordant soundtrack to echo the atmosphere of some comic book styling- it’s got that dark sci-fi feel about it that reminds us of the Kaiju Slot and Aliens. We like!
Bounty Hunt is all about the bleak future, here, in a dark and massive looming city, there are skyscrapers and futuristic flying vehicles – think Blade Runner and you’re there.
The reels are set against this brooding scene, with the reels in strips of semi-transparent computer screens. The game’s logo perches on top of these in red spiky letters.
Bounty Hunt is a 3 rows, 5 reel and 25 pay-lines slot.
The high value icons are, as you’d expect, from a game with this title, a bunch of no-good bad guys! The top dog is the female assassin of the game’s title who joins other slot heroines like the dashing pirate in the Wild Seas slot and Lara Croft herself in the search for riches. Our Bounty Hunter looks the pure comic book anti-heroine totting a laser gun and goggles. Then there’s the motley crew of 3 cyborg crims who are on her bounty list and all look like looney baddies in comic book style. The lower value icons of play are a grenade and a gun and King through ten of the card deck in a futuristic metallic font.
The game’s Wild is the word in big flashy letters and this is the icon which is vital for triggering those all-important and lucrative features. This game unsurprisingly also comes with a Wanted icon, it’s a poster frame without a face of a baddie in it just yet- just like those good ole’ days in the Wild West.
So apart from an atmosphere tense enough to fuel some exciting game play how do we start to make a killing on Bounty Hunt?
First up, this is a slot with a lot of action going on in every spin; the base game holds its thrills as well as the lucrative bonus feature. Each time you spin a reel there’s a blue crosshair, just like that on a gun, which chooses one of the icons on the reels, depending on what it selects, it triggers a matching action.
If it picks the Bounty Hunt herself then helpfully it chooses a symbol on each of the five reels to turn into a Wild, making for more winning combos.
If a Criminal is in its sights then matching icons are turned into Wilds.
If it selects the gun then the gun itself and another icon at random become Wild.
If a grenade is selected, then all the icons on the reel go Wild.
And lastly, if it chooses one of the card icons or numbers then that single icon will become Wild.
If this wasn’t enough to get you fired up, then hope that the crosshairs land on that special Wanted icon and this will trigger the free spins. But before the spinning begins you’ll see one of the faces of the three bad guys – your bounty target. There’s a rather tempting 10 free spins just for triggering the feature, then the bounty hunt begins!
During the free spins if you land the Wanted frame symbol on a crim as shown at the beginning of the feature, then you’ve got them and they usefully become a Wild for the rest of those 10 freebie spins. There are 3 of those good-for-nothings to catch and each time they become another Wild, so you could potentially have a lot of different Wilds whizzing around those reels! Will you be able to keep up with the pace of play?
I was surprised by how much fun I had on this slot, because there is action on every spin, it just feels like there’s a lot of chances to make money and it makes for exciting play. I thought the styling of the game and its atmosphere was well done, if you like upbeat game play and a good lookin’ slot then why not get your sights on Bounty Hunt and see if you can bring down the three cybog-bad guys, while making your own haul of dosh? Yee-har!
