Red Roo, launched in June 2017, is a kangaroo-inspired casino game; a trademark of Lightning Box Games, the software is provided by SG Digital. Kangaroo Land from EGT Interactive, Big Red from Aristocrat, and Red Sands from Realtime Gaming are among the rival games of Red Roo.
The slot game’s name “Red Roo” is a truncation of the name red kangaroo, which refers to the biggest type of kangaroo that originated from Australia. The mentioned kangaroo is literally red, like the red oxide-rich desert soils in its habitat. The Red Roo players mostly seek three, four, or five combinations, although some of the symbols require two, three, four, or five combinations.
Red Roo Game Characteristics
With 1024 winning ways and a 5X4 grid, Red Roo has neither fixed nor adjustable pay lines. The following are the nineteen Red Roo symbols—three special symbols and sixteen regular symbols. The special symbols are: a “Wild” and substituting image of the famous Uluru sandstone; a free games-triggering red “Bonus” kangaroo; and a free spins-triggering green “Bonus” map of Australia.
The regular symbols: an Australian woman in beachwear and sunglasses, a bare-chested Australian man with a surfboard, a black-and-white dog, two pink cuckatoos, two slightly different purple As, two slightly different Ks, two slightly different purple Qs, two slightly different blue Js, two slightly different golden-brown 10s, and two slightly different golden-yellow 9s.
The following are the Red Roo coin values: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $2.50, $5.00, and $7.00. The chosen coin values are multiplied by 40 coins. Therefore, the Red Roo’s total bets are: $0.40 (the minimum bet size), $0.80, $1.20, $1.60, $2.00, $4.00, $8.00, $10.00, $20.00, $40.00, $80.00, $100.00, $200.00, and $280.00 (the maximum bet size).
Red Roo has these payouts. First, the symbols allowing two, three, four, and five winning combinations: the red kangaroo pays X50, X150, X200, and X250; symbols of either an Australian woman or man have X20, X80, X150, and X200. Getting either a dog or the pair of cockatoos offers X10, X40, X100, and X150; while getting any of the two 9s pays X2, X5, X20, and X100.
Secondly, the symbols allowing three, four, or five combinations: the “Bonus” Australia’s map pays X80, X400, and X800; getting any of the two As or any of the two Ks pays X10, X50, and X140; getting any of the two Qs or any of the two Js has X5, X40, and X120; lastly, any of the two 10s offers X5, X20, and X100.
Three, four, and five maps of Australia offer: eight free games, 15 free games, and 20 free games, respectively. During the free games mode, two maps of Australia can show up, thereby awarding five extra free spins. Red Roo’s non-progressive jackpot is X33210 the staked amount for each of the 20 free spins.
The Red Roo software is good. The interesting wildlife sounds are easily identifiable, including the screaming cockatoos and the clucking kangaroos. The graphics are outstanding, thanks to the relaxing colors used to illustrate the starry Australian desert sky, the road sign-like feature, and the recognizable eye-catching landscapes such as the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
