The Chimney Stacks slot is quirky and colourful online video slot powered by Bally Technologies. The game has a chimney sweep theme and is filled with images of tall buildings, brick chimneys and weathervanes. The backdrop to the game is a view of the rooftops where a chimney sweep is jumping high into the air. This scene is viewed behind the actual reels that appear semi-translucent with the bright colourful reel images taking centre stage. The game features high quality graphics, with basic animation. Bally have used classic casino sound effects whenever the reels spin or a winning combination is achieved.
Chimney Sweeps and Weathervanes
The Chimney Stacks slot game is played over five reels with three rows and a total of 40 paylines. In this game, players can set the coin denomination from 0.01 coins up to 10 coins per payline. The game also features an auto-play function which allows players to set a certain number of spins without interacting the game. In addition, Chimney Stacks also offers a number of bonus features in the form of a Wild symbol, Stacked Wilds and a free spins bonus. The main set of reels includes three high paying symbols and six lower paying symbols.
The highest paying non-bonus symbol in the Chimney Stacks slot is the top hat paying out 5000 coins for all five across the reels. Next in line is the bellows paying out 1500 coins and the weathervane paying out a maximum of 1200 coins. The six lower paying symbols include the classic playing card high symbols from 9 up to ace. These symbols have been styled and coloured to blend into the theme of the game. The lowest payout in this game is when players land 3 nines across the reels. This will result in a payout of 50 coins.
Substituting Wilds and Stacked Wilds
The Wild symbol in the Chimney Stacks slot game is the image of the darkened buildings with the word “Wild” across the front. This symbol can be used to replace any of the other symbols on the reels in order to form a winning combination. The Wild symbol also shares the honour of being the highest paying symbol of the game. Finding all five Wilds across the reels, will result in a payout of 5000 coins on a standard bet.
To add to the main Wild symbol, the game also features stacked Wilds. The stacked Wilds are built to form a complete chimney stack. When the full chimney appears on the reels, the entire reel will turn wild making it easier to create a winning combination.
Free Spins with Multipliers
The free games symbol in the Chimney Stacks slot is the key to unlocking the free spins bonus round like in some Aussie real money pokies. This is the brightly coloured symbol with the words “Free Games” written on the front. To trigger this bonus round, players must land the free games scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. Once players trigger the bonus round, they will be awarded 10 free spins. During the free spins round, all winning combinations will automatically be multiplied by 4x.
