Down the Drain
, the entertaining 5-reel slot creation by Wager Gaming Technology. This slot looks like a pretty standard game with a fun theme, but it has a few bonus features hiding that you might not expect. We were immediately taken in by this game because it’s the first we’ve seen with a plumber theme. That’s why we created this full review. The game looks nice, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth playing. Find out our full thoughts on this slot below and see what you can expect when you play it yourself.
Excellent Wagering Options
There are 243 ways to win with each spin of this slot, which means you have a load of opportunities to walk away with a profit while playing here. That’s good news for all you gamblers that like to win prize payouts frequently. This game offers a nice range of wagering options and betting works as if there were 40 fixed paylines. The minimum wager amount is $0.40 per spin. The maximum wager amount is $200.00 per spin. That makes this game good for most gamblers as long as you don’t mind wagering at least $0.40 with every spin.
A Powerful Autoplay Feature
There’s no reason to sit and press the spin button again and again if you don’t want to while playing Down the Drain. The game comes loaded with an effective Autoplay feature that gives you complete control over the automatic spins. Press the Autoplay button and choose the number of spins, as well as specific conditions that will stop it from spinning. This feature enables you to set the game to stop spinning when you’ve won a certain amount or lost a specific amount, giving you excellent control the entire time, even if you walk away for a moment.
Smaller Prizes but a Solid RTP Value
The prize wins offered on the paytable are small, and the best wins you can get are 1,000 coins for five of the faucet symbols or 750 coins for five of the toilet symbols. These wins are decent, but won’t make you rich unless you get a bunch of them at the same time. Fortunately, combinations of wins are very common with this slot game. With 243 ways to win and an RTP value of 96%, multiple small wins are very common with this game. You’ll see as soon as you spin the reels a few times. The high win rate makes up for the smaller prize payouts and keeps this slot game exciting to play even without its bonus features.
Unlock Free Spins Anytime
The special Free Spin symbol shows up on reels 1, 3 and 5 at any time while playing this slot. If you get these symbols on all three of the reel spots at once you’ll unlock a free spin bonus with 8 free spins and a chance to unlock additional spins. There isn’t a multiplier or any special bonus conditions, but anytime a single Free Spin symbol shows up during the free spins you’ll get one additional free spin. The eight free spins can quickly turn into many more with a bit of luck, and all those spins can give you a chance to unlock some substantial prize payouts.
The Single Re-Spin Feature Occurs Often
This game comes with a pretty nice re-spin feature as well as the free spin bonus round. Whenever a single re-spin symbol appears anywhere on reel 3 a single re-spin is rewarded. You’ll get used to getting these free spins occasionally and they help to make this slot a better value over time. Between the frequent prize wins, solid RTP and frequent single free spins, this slot is pretty rewarding to play.
Overlap Pipes in the Bonus Round
If you manage to get three of the Bonus wrench symbols out on the reels at the same time you will unlock the bonus pipe repair round. In this round, it’s up to you to repair as many pipes as you can. Each time you get pipes to overlap one another you’ll increase the prize multiplier. Get lucky with your repairs and you could trigger a huge prize multiplier to unlock at the end of the bonus.
