Designed by Gamesys, Winstones sets itself apart with its theme and the focus on the prehistoric times, while in every other way it’s a modern slot that has a layout with 5 reels and up to 25 lines that can be activated by the player. There are multiple types of features inside, so the player will benefit from the presence of wild symbols, of bonus games, multipliers and scatter icons. Overall, this is a game that should prove entertaining for a lot of people, even with its relatively weak design.
If you’ve ever watched the Flintstones cartoon series, the design of this slot will look familiar. You will find on the reels the same type of cavemen (and women), plus various dinosaurs as characters and objects made out of stone (mainly the playing card icons). The betting system is standard for this developer, offering the player the chance to change the number of active lines and the coin denomination. The number of coins used for an active line is always at 1. The coin size goes from $0.01 to $1, a decent number that doesn’t ask a lot from the player. A maximum wager of $25 is possible when all the lines are selected, an option that the player can change with the Bet One and Bet Max settings.
The best case scenario involves the presence of five game logo symbols on an active line, which would result in a payout worth 2000 times what the line wager was. A $2,000 maximum jackpot is offered as a result, while the second best option is at $1,000.
The game logo is the one you want to see as often as possible on a payline, as it’s a wild that can also give you the top jackpot. Even better, when the wild symbol is part of a winning combo the payout of that combination gets doubled thanks to the included 2x multiplier.
Another feature I’ve enjoyed taking advantage of is the scatter symbol with the mammoth image on it. Prizes are offered whenever a minimum of two scatters of this type are present, with payouts increasing with each additional symbol. Up to 50x the total bet value can be won here. Here you will find a comprehensive overview to the game’s features.
The best feature of the game would probably be its Pterodactyl Wheel. It’s a bonus round that requires the same mammoth scatter symbol. The minimum requirement is for three scatter symbols to be present. When that happens, a bonus game starts up and the player can spin the wheel and win both free games and multipliers for them. Depending on the player’s luck, he can get anywhere from 5 spins with 2x multipliers, to 20 free spins with multipliers at 5x. As you can see for yourself, it has the potential of being an incredibly profitable feature.
All things considered, I’d recommend Winstones to the players that enjoy having lots of features and chances of getting decent payouts, but who don’t necessarily put a lot of value on a modern design.
