Big Apple Wins (January 2018) is an Internet casino game developed by Booming Games. Thematically, Big Apple Wins is a slot game adaptation of New York by night. Big Apple Wins is one of the video slots in Booming Games’ Wins line, together with Royal Wins (December 2017), Vegas Wins (2017), Mexico Wins (March 2018), and Asia Wins (November 2018). The rival games of Big Apple Wins include New York by iSoftBet, New York from Portomaso Gaming, and New York from B3W Group.
The name “Big Apple Wins” results from the apple fruit symbolism that offers a type of huge payout called big win. The payouts are offered to three, four, or five matching symbols.
Big Apple Wins Game Characteristics
The Big Apple Wins has a 5X3 grid, 20 adjustable pay lines, and nine symbols. Other features are free spins, a gamble feature, and stacked symbols. The two Big Apple Wins special symbols are: a yellow-and-red “Wild” and substituting Statue of Liberty encircled by blue and green lights; and a green-and-blue free spins-giving Empire State Building (scatter).
The seven ordinary symbols in Big Apple Wins are: an American flag-inspired blue 7 with white stars; a striped white 7; a striped red 7; a New York City taxicab (yellow, blue and black) with a lit cab roof sign; a red, blue, and purple “BROADWAY” signpost; a yellow-and-red pizza; and a red-and-green bitten apple.
The Big Apple Wins coin values: 0.01 (the lowest bet), $0.02, $0.03, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, and $10.00. For example, these are the Big Apple Wins’ total bets for five, ten, 15, and 20 pay lines. Five pay lines: $0.05, $0.10, $0.15, $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, $1.50, $2.50, $5.00, $10.00, $15.00, $25.00, and $50.00.
Ten pay lines: $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $30.00, $50.00, and $100.00. Fifteen pay lines: $0.15, $0.30, $0.45, $0.75, $1.50, $3.00, $4.50, $7.50, $15.00, $30.00, $45.00, $75.00, and $150.00. The twenty pay lines: $0.20, $0.40, $0.60, $1.00, $2.00, $4.00, $6.00, $10.00, $20.00, $40.00, $60.00, $100.00, and $200.00 (the maximum bet).
The $200.00 maximum bet is the basis for these Big Apple Wins payouts for three, four, and five combinations. The Statue of Liberty pays $400.00, $4000.00, and $10000.00. The Empire State Building offers $2000.00, $10000.00, and $400000.00. The starry blue 7, or striped white 7, or striped red 7 pays $200.00, $1000.00, and $2000.00. The taxicab or the “BROADWAY” sign pays $50.00, $200.00, and $1000.00. Either the pizza or the bitten apple pays $10.00, $100.00, and $500.00.
More than three Empire State Buildings give ten free games, wherein the players can get another big payout called Epic Win. The “Gamble” side game—accessed via the flickering red button—lets the players risk losing their payout in their quest for doubling it; this process involves tapping an apple or a pizza, thereby doubling the “current win” if the upcoming symbol resembles the pre-chosen one. The non-progressive jackpot of Big Apple Wins is $400000.00.
The Big Apple Wins software is good and the sounds are soothing. The bitten apple reminds of the logo of Apple Inc. The simple 2D caricatures—especially the taxicab, statue, signpost, and landmark building—and the attractive neon lighting realistically depict the characteristics of New York.
