Big Bot Crew from Quickspin: Slot Review - nudging robots everywhere!

Visit a parallel world where building big friendly robots is the order of the day!

Warp to a parallel universe and join a bunch of tech-savvy teens as they go about building tomorrow’s robots in this new release from top software producer Quickspin. This game is clearly inspired by the hit Disney animation Big Hero 6 as it revolves around a gang of plucky teens called Matsuo, Danielle, and Joaquin who are building hi-tech robots from spare parts on the outskirts of a vast metropolis. Their finest creation so far is a tall red robot called Bigbot which is an all-purpose humanoid whose mission is to help players unlock big prizes. Read on to find out if making robots really is as fun and rewarding as it sounds!

Big Bot Crew is a 5 reel slot game with 40 paylines that includes Nudging Wilds, Full Reel Wilds, Respins, and Free Spins.

Special Features

The first feature to discuss is the Wild symbol which is represented by the tall red robot Bigbot. Like typical Wild symbols, this symbol replaces all other symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter to help create winning combinations. It’s a fully stacked 4x1 symbol and only appears on reels 2,3, and 4 in the main game and is also the highest paying symbol in the game. Land 5 of these symbols on an active payline and you will bag yourself a nice cash payout worth 10X your stake! If the Wild symbol pops up on 2 or more reels in the main game then there is also a chance that any partial Wild symbol will nudge to cover the entire reel.

Land 2 or more Wilds in the main game and you will trigger the Bigbot respin feature. The number of respins that you receive is dependent on the number of Wilds that fully land in the triggering spin. All full reel Wilds will remain on the reels for the duration of the respin feature and move to the indicated reel at the beginning of each respin. When you land additional fully landing Wilds in this feature then you will receive more respins. During respins, any partial Wild symbol may also nudge into position to fully cover the reel.

The Scatter symbol is depicted by an image of the chest plate of Bigbot and if you land 3 of these symbols in the same spin then you will trigger the Free Spins feature. Once activated, you will receive 8 Free Spins and will receive 1 extra Free Spin for every Wild symbol that fully lands on the reels. Any partial Wild symbol appearing during Free Spins is guaranteed to nudge to fully cover the reel to further increase your chances of landing a big cash windfall. This feature ends when there no more Free Spins remaining.

Theme and Graphics

The presentation of this game is top notch as it takes place in front of a garage that’s set in an exotic sprawling metropolis full of low buildings with a cloudy blue sky in the background. Symbols are superbly detailed and consist of Danielle, Matsuo, Joaquin, some Robots, and a bunch of different coloured cogs. The animations are crisp as symbols dart up and down the reels and highlight with a nice gold frame when part of a winning combination. I especially like when you trigger the Free Spins feature how Bigbot flies up and down on the reels and the background changes completely to a nighttime setting.

The music is breezy with lots of light techno sound effects. It fits in really well with the robot theme of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 40 paylines, a very good RTP 96.51%, and a top maximum payout of 5,203.2X your total stake.
