Playtech’s 8 Ball Slot has become a hit with players familiar with the 8 ball pool game. Playtech has built the slot along the typical classic slot format and has incorporated within it twenty ways to win. Players can bet a maximum of two coins and win a top fixed jackpot of 2000 coins. On the downside, there is no progressive jackpot.
Since Playtech’s 8 Ball Slot is a classic one-line video slot, it lacks lucrative features such as multipliers, scatters, wilds, and bonus games. The coin value range, however, is very player friendly as it offers values in the range of $0.05 to $5. Players can bet a maximum of $10 or two coins, or as little as $0.05.
Theme and Symbols
Playtech has designed the slot in such a way that it makes players feel as if they are in a land casino. While spinning the reels of this slot, players can view images of two other slot machines on each side of the 8 Ball Slot.
Since the slot is based on the pool game theme, its reels feature pool balls numbered from one to fifteen. Each ball has a different color and a different number. The pay table has two parts—one-coin payouts and two-coin payouts. If players bet two coins, their payouts will be larger. Besides, the icons for two-coin bets are totally different. For instance, if players bet only one coin and match three icons associated with the two-coin bet, they will not win any money. However, if players bet two coins, they can win any of the prizes mentioned on the pay table.
No Special Features
As previously mentioned, Playtech’s 8 Ball slot does not have features such as wilds, scatters, free spins, gamble games, and so on. But there is an autoplay feature that allows players to play the game automatically for up to 9999 spins.
To win the lowest payout of 2 coins, players must bet one coin and hit a combination of 3 solid balls. The top payout of 2000 coins goes to the player who bets 2 coins and spins a combination of three 8 Ball icons across the activated middle coin. However, if players had bet only one coin, their prize for this combo would only be 800 coins.
This means that players who bet the maximum of $10 can take home $10,000 if they spin the jackpot combination.
The Sum Up
A run of the mill classic slot machine, this machine is for those that likes the nostalgic feel of them, or simply likes something less flashy. It doesn’t feature much special effects or other things to amuse the player, but if you are simply looking to spin some reels on a standard machine, this is for you. Not a slot machine we frequent all that often to be honest.
