Chip Spin Review
Casino chips have become synonymous with gaming. Even as brick and mortar casinos opt for different methods nowadays, we still imagine those big, colourful chips.
Usually, you use these chips to play games and to cash out your winnings. However, Relax Gaming found a new use for them in Chip Spin. They become the cornerstone that makes the slot’s special features work.
- High volatility with a 25,000x jackpot
- Standard RTP for this game is 96.41% and can be increased to 96.74%
- Available special features include the bonus game, free spins, and feature buy
Las Vegas is the dream all gamblers aspire. In many ways, the city has shaped modern gambling as we know it. That makes it a great choice of theme.
The background image and symbol designs in this release give you a good idea of what to expect there. Plenty of glitz and glamour that distracts you from the highly volatile nature of this online slot.
The various special features allow you to win up to 25,000x in Chip Spin. However, that jackpot is only possible if you take full advantage of the bonus game and free spins.
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
You cannot go wrong when choosing Vegas as your playground. Especially when you do a great job as Relax Gaming does.
The background looks great during normal gameplay. However, free spins or the bonus game alters the background, so it displays Las Vegas at nighttime.
It makes for a great view, especially when it is combined with top tier animations. We especially liked the idle animations human icons have.
You play this release on a five-reel, five-row board with cluster pays instead of traditional paylines.
Find at least three matching symbols in adjacent reels, with matching icons in the same row or one row above or below.
Winning combinations have to start with the leftmost reel, or the associated cash prize will not be paid.
Land five or more chips of any kind to trigger the bonus game. You start with one life, which you lose if no new chips land.
However, all chips that appear are sticky, and will be frozen in the positions they land. All chips can land with small heart dice next to the chip symbol.
When that happens, players receive one extra life per heart dice. Additionally, different chips grant different power-ups.
- Green chips grant coin values
- Purple chips double the value of one to three chips
- Black chip collects all visible coin values except their own
Both the purple and black chip have a limited number of times they can be used.
Finally, if a column is filled with icons completely, green chips will consolidate their value into one symbol. This opens more room for new chips to land on the board.
If you do not like waiting, the slot allows you to skip the wait and buy the special features directly. The bonus game costs 70x your total stake, while free spins cost 90x your total stake.
Chip Spin Free Spins
Find three or more bonus symbols to win free spins. Three bonus icons award eight free spins, and any additional bonus symbols award an additional two spins.
During free spins, the three-chip icons receive special properties. Green chips grant an extra free spin.
Purple chips increase the win multiplier by one. Black chips transform into sticky Wilds, which stay in position until the free spins end.
Where To Play Chip Spin?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
The RTP for this game is 96.41% by default. However, you can increase it to 96.74% by buying features instead of playing the title as usual.
This is attractive, though you also have to factor in the increased cost. Both RTPs are above the current average for slots, which sits at 96%.
You can bet between $0.10 and $40 on each spin.
Relax Gaming set this release to high variance for a reason. It has a fantastic 25,000x jackpot, but it will not give it up without a fight.
Getting the special features to line up and grant a big win takes time and luck. Be careful when planning your bets, or you might lose everything.
We did not expect to have so much fun playing Chip Spin. The visuals were great. Icon designs are done well, especially their animations.
The background shifting from day to evening when you trigger special features also looks cool. We also like the large role chips play in the bonuses.
They grant cash prizes and small boosts that push these special features from good to great.
If you can stomach the high volatility, we definitely think this game is worth checking out. We rate this 4 out of 5 stars.
