Fat Frankies Slot Review 2022
Big Tony is serving up some mighty fine food with a side order of Big Wins, in Play’n Go’s newest release, Fat Frankies!
Big Tony’s truck serves up some of the best fast food around, and it’s time for us to put his name on the map. Bring in customers to help increase orders, tips and ratings to make his food truck a great success and earn yourself a part of the profits.
In terms of theme, Fat Frankies is by far the most unique release from Play’n GO this year. We can’t say we see a lot of slots that with a theme set in a fast food truck, but if you’re a lover of a greasy burger with all the trimmings, then you’re definitely going to love what Play’n GO has done here.
Fat Frankies is a cartoon style slot which gives off a similar vibe to Bob’s Burgers and Family Guy. The background shows Tony’s fast food truck, which definitely needs a little TLC. Every so often Tony will pop out from behind the counter and take your order, which gets a little bit annoying after a while especially when he makes a comment with each spin. Its fair to say that Fat Frankies makes a change from the recurring Egyptian themes Play’n GO keeps revisiting.
Will Fat Frankies be worth breaking the diet for, or will we end up in a whole lot of toilet trouble? Let’s play on and find out!
Fat Frankies Betting and Symbols
Fat Frankies has a variety of betting options for players to choose from. For those who prefer a lower stake, the minimum bet available is £/€0.10 per spin. For those who prefer a higher stake, the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two.
The highest paying regular symbol in Fat Frankies is the Burger, followed by the Hotdog, Taco and Fries. Lower paying symbols fall to Diamonds, Hearts, Spades and Clubs in the form of coloured Milkshakes.
Wild symbols substitute for all symbols except Scatters and Star symbols.
Fat Frankies Base Game and Features
Fat Frankies is a 5 reel slot with 243 Ways to win. In order to form a win, you will need to connect 3 or more of the same symbols from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
While Fat Frankies is rather devoid of features in the Base Game, the opposite is true in the Free Spins round.
Fat Frankies Free Spins
Landing 3 Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5, triggers the Free Spins round.
There are 4 Bonus rounds available and each one has a different kind of Free Spins round, as follows.
During this round, only Burger symbols are in play.
Each time a Burger symbol lands in view, it will become Sticky and will remain in its fixed position for the duration of the Bonus round.
Once this happens, you will automatically be awarded an additional Respin, up to 15 Free Spins.
The Burger Bonanza round ends when no more Burgers land in view.
Flip The Tip
Once this Bonus round is active, you will be awarded 3 Coins.
You will be given 3 chances to land your awarded Coins in the Jars. Each Jar has a unique Credit Prize attached to it. Each time a Coin goes into the Jar, the Credit Prizes increase and a Coin Life is regained. If a Coin happens to miss the Jars, then that Coin is lost forever.
The available Credit Prizes are 5x, 10x, 20x, 100x, 250x, 500x, 1,000x and 2,500x your current bet.
The Flip The Tip round ends when no more Coins are left or if the top Credit Prize is reached.
During this round, between 1 and 5 Stacked Wilds can be added to the reels randomly.
Although you need to land Scatters to be awarded Greasy Wilds, we feel that this round would be better suited to being a Feature in the base game rather than a Bonus round.
5 Star Spins
During this round, you will be awarded 10 Free Spins.
Landing a Gold Star on reels 1, 3 and 5 during any Free Spin, will be collected and increases the Mutliplier by +1 and awards an additional +2 Free Spins.
Up to 20 Free Spins and a x6 Multiplier can be achieved during this round.
Fat Frankies: Our Verdict
Fat Frankies certainly looks good enough to eat and Play’n GO has done a brilliant job at incorporating everything associated with Fast Food into this slot. The cartoon graphics are pretty neat and the hard work Play’n GO has put into the design really shows.
The lack of Features in the base game is particularly disappointing and may be enough to scare off most players, but thankfully Play’n GO has loaded the Free Spins round with a variety of options. The Greasy Wilds round would have made a fantastic base game feature, but doesn’t really make much sense as a Free Spins round. It’s hard enough as it is to trigger the Free Spins round, so to be awarded with the likes of Greasy Wilds that lasts all of 30 seconds would be a serious blow to the stomach.
Statistically, Fat Frankies looks okay on the RTP front, with an above average of 96.20%, but with a less than impressive maximum win capacity of 6,000x. The maximum win capacity may seem on the lower side especially compared to other slots, but it’s to be expected considering Fat Frankies is a Medium Volatility slot.
Overall, Fat Frankies has both its positives and negatives, but other than making you really hungry, we don’t think its worth a 5 Star review.
