Betting Options and Bonus Features
The game’s grid unfolds on a 5x3 reel grid with 10 paylines. The game boasts medium volatility, an RTP of 96.2%, and uniquely designed Peter Wright-inspired symbols, consisting of seven pay tiles, a Wild trophy symbol, and two special symbols. The low-value 10 to A royals showcase slick gothic lettering, while the three higher-value dart flights all feature Snakebite's face.
To score a winning combination, you must land at least three adjacent matching symbols from the left-hand side on one of the ten paylines. Wild can appear on all reels, substituting regular pay symbols, and can also pay from any position like a Scatter, rewarding 2, 10, or 200x the bet for obtaining 3, 4, or 5 in view.
Two additional special symbols bring various effects into play – the Dartboard symbol, appearing on reels 1-4, and the Snakebite symbol, found on reel 5. If two or more Dartboards land without the Snakebite symbol, an instant prize ranging from 1 to 10 times the total bet is awarded for each Dartboard in view.
However, when two or more Dartboards and the Snakebite symbol simultaneously appear, the Snake Spins feature is activated. This grants 3 spins on an expanded 5x5 side reel set, converting the triggering Dartboard symbols into Instant Prize symbols.
During Snake Spins, only Instant Prizes, Snake Snap, Peter Pays, or Golden Darts symbols appear on the grid, and any of these landing will reset the remaining spins back to three. These offer distinct advantages when they land:
- Instant Prizes - display a value of 1x, 2x, 5x, or 10x the total bet.
- Snake Snaps - duplicate all Instant Prizes in view, then collect their values.
- Peter Pays - adds a value of 1x, 2x, 5x, or 10x the bet to the Instant Prizes.
- Golden Darts - increase the win multiplier up to 10x, enhancing the total winnings when the feature concludes.
These symbols lock on the reels until the feature ends when spins are exhausted or all positions are filled. Each symbol comes with unique properties, such as displaying values, duplicating or adding to Instant Prizes, and building a win multiplier up to x10.
Charming game with decent gameplay for a branded slot. Can’t really say that I’ve ever heard of Peter Wright but Play’n GO did a good job of giving his character a lot of depth in the game. Overall though, it is a branded game after all so you spin it responsibly. If you’re a big darts fan and enjoy the gameplay it’s worth a few spins.
