Trigger Happy Slot Review 2024

When we heard the name ‘Trigger Happy’ we’ll admit that we were expecting some sort of Western, or at least a game that thematically portrayed the conventional meaning of those words.

Big Time Gaming’s Trigger Happy is nothing of the sort. It’s an arcade setting, and in the background, you’ll find references to other popular BTG titles. An arcade with Donuts and Lil Devil sounds better to us than 2p coin pushers, and their latest invention with these strangely cute and fluffy creatures looks pretty appealing too.

Trigger Happy Special Features

In this section of the review, we will be indulging in all things special features. Trigger Happy offers Target Wilds, Bonus Panels, a Win exchange feature, as well as a Bonus Buy option.

Target Wilds

At the start of each new spin and reaction, a special Target will position itself on a random symbol and transform it into a Wild, substituting for all High and Low-paying symbols.

Bonus Panels

To the left and bottom of the main reel set are individual Bonus Panels. During every spin and reaction, both Bonus Panels may reveal Multipliers, Bombs, and Trigger Coins.

  • Multipliers – Multipliers from both panels that line up with the target’s final position will be applied to the new Wild in that position.
  • Bombs – If a Bomb occurs, it will remove all symbols from its row or column, adding up to 4 Wilds in their positions.
  • Trigger Coins – Triggers the Free Spins round if the target’s final position aligns with a Trigger Coin in both Bonus Panels.

Win Exchange

Whenever a win accumulates to 100x your bet or more, you will have the option to cash the total value in for 8 Free Spins. Alternatively, when a win reaches between 25x and 100x your bet, you can trade the total value in for a chance to win 8 Free Spins via a Gamble Wheel.

Bonus Buy

Those outside the UK can buy their way into the Free Spins round for an additional 100x your bet.

Trigger Happy Bonus Rounds & Free Spins

Trigger Happy has one Free Spins round which triggers when 2 Trigger Coins align with the target’s final position in both Bonus Panels. Once active, 8 Free Spins are awarded.

During Free Spins, 2 Targets place Wild symbols in random positions of the main reel set. During this time, if a target’s final position aligns with a Trigger Coin in both Bonus Panels, +3 Free Spins are awarded.

If it’s light-hearted gameplay and promising max win capabilities you’re after, Trigger Happy offers just that! Big Time Gaming shows no end to their creativity, conjuring up clever ways to introduce new features and mechanics into their releases, but what are our thoughts on their latest project?

Trigger Happy instantly wins points for its quirky theme and fuzzy companions, while boasting an extremely generous max win cap of 50,000x, entwined with a Cluster Pays mechanic.

Created by the very provider who bought us Megaways, Trigger Happy is the latest in a long line of BTG titles to receive a new and exciting feature known to us as Bonus Panels. The apple clearly doesn’t fall far from the tree, sharing certain similarities to the additional sliding reels in Megaways slots.

Switching from Scatters to Trigger Coins, Big Time Gaming has not made triggering Free Spins easy…unless of course, you’re in a position to access Bonus Buys. Landing 2 Trigger Coins can be straightforward, but you’ve also got the gruelling task of getting them to line up with the Target. This wouldn’t be such a daunting task if there was an Ante Bet feature to aid you.

All in all, Trigger Happy is an exciting yet challenging offering from BTG that combines timeless features and mechanics with impressive max win capabilities worth up to 50,000x!
