Worms Reloaded Review
Set against a cartoonish battlefield backdrop, Worms Reloaded brings all the kookiness and delight from the rest of the series. Expect to find Worms dropping in next to the reels in order to assist or hinder your game. This gaming themed slot is a 5-reel, 20 payline game developed by the illustrious Blueprint Gaming.
With a multitude of features, modifiers and jackpots - Worms Reloaded will provide you with a wormtastic experience that’s tonnes more fun than the first game. Complete with imagery, music and sounds all inspired from the Worms’ franchise.
The game is set on a battlefield with different Worm characters all in the background with weapons. It looks almost identical to the Worm’s video game series with a similar colour scheme and character designs. This makes it feel more like a Worm’s slot rather than a bland spin-off. Unfortunately, the background has no animation and the characters only animate at certain moments which can make the game feel quite static at times.
When sounds are played from spinning the reels, it adds a lot of personality to the game making it more enjoyable. The voices are done well with each one seemingly different from the others. Despite this, the music lets down the experience. As you can imagine, the music is loud and aggressive with drum beats to emulate a battle zone. The music does seem to jump quite a bit which makes it frustrating to listen to and you may end up just muting it all together.
With the background being static, your eyes are fully focused on the reels. Some players might like this so that they can focus on their game, but it’s regretful that the developers didn’t try and do a little more to show off the Worms.
Worms Reloaded is played on 5-reels with 3 rows of symbols on 20 fixed paylines. Every spin can have either a feature, modifier or Jackpot King Deluxe if you get successful. They can either help you get free spins, stack up your multiplier or get the chance at a jackpot.
The symbols are big and easy to follow with everything clearly laid out. Instructions, guides to symbols and general sound settings are to the bottom left of the reels, whilst the spin button is to the right. Further to the left side, there is a bet adjustment button that goes between 0.20 and 100.00 - the decision is up to you.
For those of you wanting to autospin, it’s situated to the bottom right side of the screen. You can decide between 10 and 100 autospins with specific settings that ensure you don’t lose all your balance.
The game's volatility is medium, so expect steady payouts. It has an RTP of 92.66% that is below the average but makes up for it with the Jackpot King Deluxe. Worms Reloaded can see you win a maximum of 500x of your stake. It’s nothing particularly special, but the free spins and other features will be sure to help you get towards higher returns.
Worms Reloaded is definitely a slot game for fans of the video game series. It’s easy to follow and has many chances to win extra stuff with all the features and modifiers. Some may be disappointed with the lack of presentation on the slot as animations and music are sporadic - but it makes up for it with its intensive gameplay.
Blueprint Gaming’s addition of multiple free spins, modifiers and Jackpot King Deluxe make this a game that’s worth a try for both fans of the series and slot enthusiasts. Make sure to give it a ‘worm’ welcome and give it a go.
