Blueprint Gaming brings us another Megaways franchise game from a television show called Rick and Morty. From the channel Adult Swim is a cartoon adult themed comedy show which has received a cult status. Rick Sanchez character is a scientist and following him around is his grandson – Morty. These two get up to various adventures which are represented in the theme of this slot.
Theme of Slot
Obvious attention and detail have been payed to in the design of this slot with the features representing highlights of the show. Even though the show is a bit ‘niche’ this will appeal to any slot fans who like the Blueprint style of Megaways games. You can’t help but feel this might have the same team who designed Gods of Olympus and Genie Jackpots as it has similar feel to the style. The Graphics are extremely detailed and well done to a usual Blueprint high standard, as well as the audio clips are well used and give a good experience overall.
Features of Slot
Starting with the obvious, it uses the Megaways system of 6 reels which can give upto 117,749 ways in one spin. To go with this the reels are also cascading which mean new symbols replaces the old winning ones. The playouts are standard for Megaways games with 9-A paying the usual low amounts and the picture values increasing with Morty (2nd best) and Rick paying the highest for 50x a line.
If you don’t live in the UK, then the Bonus Buy feature will be active for you to immediately go and activate a feature for 150x stake. Otherwise you are looking for 4 Bonus symbols to enter the bonus round, every scatter after the 4 will award extra spins to the total. In the bonus round you can choose one of three features:
Pickle Rick: Basic feature of each win will increase the multiplier with the chance of a retrigger with 3 or more Scatter symbol in the top row.
Federation Wild Spins: if a symbol appears in the top row and is below it will turn of all those – in that column only – wild. If the wild symbol appears in the top row then it turns all symbols – in that column only – wild also. Again 3 or more Scatters will retrigger for more spins.
Vindicators Free Spins: A special symbol (a red symbol with a laser shot in it) if appearing in the top row will start a cash collector bonus. Any gold cash symbols, or one of the four-character symbols will add different values to each special symbol in the top. This will respin until none of these cash symbols land in a spin.
You also in the bonus have the 4th choice of gambling the feature in a gamble wheel. The gamble wheel has 5 to 20 spins (plus extras from additional scatters) on the inside and on the outside the 3 different features. Once you spin it will land on amount of spins followed by which feature you will get.
The only random feature in this game is Mystery Symbols which once landed will all change into the same symbol and this can also happen during the feature also – it cannot turn into wilds or scatters.
What to look for
Having played the game quite a bit you can go long period (as with all Megaways games) without a feature especially as it has 4 scatters to trigger which are naturally harder than the 3 games. Once you get into feature the most desirable by players is the Federation free spins as this is considered to have the greatest potential (4 wild reels on 2-5.) This makes this feature the obvious more volatile and can pay badly at times. Next in potential is the Pickle Rick as the multipliers can up add to significant amounts if you have enough spins and wins in a row. Finally, the Vindicator free spins feel more balanced and will be the more consistent in amounts paid. Saying that all bonuses have potential to pay 500x to 1000x easily just the volatility changes between them.
Outside of the feature the slot offers very little potential to hit big so your hoping on the bonus mainly for your payout.
The slot design is well done and is a solid Megaways slot as always from Blueprint. As its set at 150x bonus buy the frequency of bonuses is not going to happen very often and if you like grinding a slot with not much action for the bonus potential then slot is for you. With no random features this can get quite boring easily however the bonus features are fun to play and do balance out a lot of the dead spins.
The presentation of the slot with the theme of Rick and Morty does bring some interest and without it could be a very boring slot. The potential is very real in the bonus as described the huge 10,000x are most likely to come from the Federation spins but this can also be the curse of a lot of 0-20x bonuses also. Apart from Pickle Rick the other features feel fresh and new which brings you to want to bonus it more.
For some this slot will be boring as not much happens in between the bonus but for others who love the potential side will be fully interested in this. Myself, I’m somewhere in between but I personally prefer Genie Jackpots as it has some interesting random features.
