Swindle all the Way Slots
Did you get the seasonal reference in the title of this game? Swindle All the Way is obviously a twist on jingling all the way in the famous Christmas song, so that reveals the theme in action in this game. Will it turn out to be one of your favorite festive slots though?
It certainly has an alternative theme going on, so we decided to check it out in more detail, to give us a better insight into its features.
Created by a popular developer
The game comes from Realtime Gaming, who have created plenty more festive slots that rank among our favorites. Have they done it again with this game?
Demo accessibility? Tick
Yes, we can tick this box as we can play a practice version of the game. It gives us a better idea of how all the features work and whether we might want to switch to the real version.
Does this have a twist on a popular theme?
It does, yes. The festive part is revealed by that title, but it also reveals there could be some swindling going on. A newspaper appears as one of the icons that could deliver some prizes, and this shows us two escaped criminals…
Prepare for a colorful design
It truly does look amazing, too, thanks to the snow-filled background, fir trees, and festive lights strung around. Look out for gift-wrapped lower-value symbols, along with milk and cookies and some Christmas stockings too.
How to play Swindle All the Way
This is another five-reel thriller from RTG. We can see the usual three-icon per reel format too. And yes, you get two progressives rolled into the game, triggerable following any paid spin. The trigger occurs entirely at random, of course.
The two robbers appearing in the newspaper also appear on the wild symbol. They substitute everything in the game apart from the scattered logo.
How many paylines can you bet on?
You've got 25 in this game, so that should be enough to keep you focused on looking for prizes.
Does this qualify as a penny slot?
Yes, so if you place a cent on each line, you've got a 25-cent spin bet. The biggest wager you can place across the lines is $25.
Don't miss the paytable
This is where all the facts and features of the game appear. It's the ideal place to begin if you're curious to learn more about any aspect of Swindle All the Way.
Is there a bonus to be aware of?
No, but you can look for the robbers inside an apartment building if you manage to find three scatters to reveal the free game feature. Since they do involve free games, we'll discuss this in the next section.
Free spins in Swindle All the Way
When those scatters appear and trigger the feature, you'll see an apartment block appear. There are 15 sets of windows, all closed. The idea is to pick some windows to see if you can find the robbers. Three triggering scatters earn you one pick on each reel. If you triggered the feature with four or more scatters, you can have two picks per reel.
The idea is to find as many robbers with your given picks. You'll receive free games and multipliers for your efforts. The best outcome is to receive 60 spins with a massive 33x multiplier. That has a touch of the Cash Bandits feel about it… and there's nothing wrong with that! If you retrigger the spins, you get another 10 spins on top of however many you've already got.
No clear return to player value
This is common enough with RTG slots, so it isn't a shock to see this happening again here.
Our rating for Swindle All the Way
It is an unusual mix of themes, but RTG seems to do well with games based around criminals! This is another entertaining game, especially given the pick feature. We're giving this one 9.5 out of 10.
Any news of some progressive jackpot winners?
There have been some since this game was released, and it is just a matter of time before we can expect more to become known. We'll reveal news here when we get it.
Play for entertainment and no real prizes
This game has enough entertainment involved to make it a delight to play even just using the demo mode. You can try it and see if you agree.
Playing for real from a penny per line
Just a quarter per spin covers all the lines in Swindle All the Way, so you certainly won't feel cheated out of your budget.
Look out for it on mobile too
The game is available today across all platforms and devices.
