Slot Bonanza HD: Written iPad App Review
If you’re like us, you’ve got a bit of a shameful thing for those ye olden pokies—that’s slot machines for you Yanks. In other words, you like to swing those wheels and see what you land on, though you might not like actually wasting money on the experience. If that sounds familiar, then you might want to look into Slot Bonanza HD by developer InfiApps. The title comes loaded with more than enough slot machine action to keep us happy, as well as one groovy interface. All in all, it’s a quick fix for a gambler with sense, and for our full review, you need only to slide on down below the break!
Concept and Gameplay
Do you understand the concept of slots, or have you ever played one such machine yourself? If so, then you’ve already got a handle—pun intended—on how Slot Bonanza HD works. The app is more or less a direct and pure translation of the classic gambling experience, with the HD version for the iPad as well as the iPhone version. This means you’ll get six different slot machines, each with a slight variation in design and rules. To play, you’ll pick a number of lines (possible ways in which the slots can lineup for a payout) as well as a bet. Then, pull the lever and away the whole thing goes!
Payouts are automatic, as are losses. You’ll go until you’re out of coins, at which point you can purchase more via in-app purchase. If you don’t want to do this—and we hardly blame you—then you can simply wait for the next day’s daily handouts. These are a small number of coins which you can then in turn use to play Slot Bonanza HD. All in all, it’s a solid, endlessly entertaining slots experience on the iPad, exactly as we like it.
Graphics and Design
Better still, all of the glitz and glamor of playing slots has been preserved within Slot Bonanza HD. The six different machines you’ll get access to are quite lovely to look at, assuming you like that Vegas aesthetic. The controls also could not be simpler to manage. In fact, even if you’ve never touched a slot machine in your life, we have a feeling you’ll be able to work your way around in only a number of minutes. Overall, there’s some truly top-notch design to be had with both versions; Slot Bonanza HD for iPad and Slot Bonanza for iPhone.
The app also happens to be completely free in the App Store, which makes it a tremendous value for the individual with a need to gamble but no cash to do it. The in-app purchases can be rather expensive, but you’re in no way required to use them. We hardly felt the need to, and at the end of the day, we had a blast playing around with Slot Bonanza HD, and the version for the iPhone was just as much fun.
Slot Bonanza HD requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
