RealTime Gaming offers us a 1950’s rock and roll themed slot in The Big Bopper. This classic game is a tribute slot to JP Richardson Jr, an artist who tragically died in a plane crash, right at the start of his career. He died together with Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens. The artist is best known, Chantilly Lace.
The theme is a bit sombre, though the game is not. The game celebrates classic 1950s Rock n’ Roll culture, complementing that with original songs from the Bopper. The game also includes original black and white video footage from the Bopper in its design. To keep you dancing during gameplay, the slot game awards an instant win bonus and 2 free spins rounds.
The theme features some bright neon lights with the backdrop being an old-fashioned movie theatre. The reels are then framed by huge curtains. It doesn’t stop there, the game’s symbols include glass cola bottles, some aviator shades, a leather jacket and acoustic guitars. There is great Rock n’ Roll music from the Bopper himself to keep you entertained during gameplay.
To further complement the musical theme, all win icons are music related. A to 10 playing cards are all replaced by musical notes as the low-value icons. Be prepared to see an old transistor radio, a Wurlitzer jukebox, as well as 12-inch vinyl records. To top that, there is a stacked symbol of none other than the Big Bopper. This symbol is animated and will burst into a video when it lands on a win line.
The Big Bopper Gameplay and Features
This is an all ways pay game. The game doesn’t offer a progressive jackpot but you can still win big with the bonus feature and 2 sets of spins that we mentioned earlier. Each of these rounds will be triggered at random whenever 3 Bopper icons appear anywhere on the reels.
As long as the Bopper sings Chantilly Lace during the Big Bopper instant win feature, you will win. Further free spins are will be added until the Bopper stops singing. With the maximum available being 45 with a 10 times win multiplier, this means that this game is potentially a very high payout slot. Lastly, there is the White Lightning free spins feature. In this feature, as long as the music plays on, the spins will also continue on. To add some potential high wins, there is also a grouped symbol available.
