Video Slots with Big Multipliers

You may or may not already be familiar with a lot of the video slots featured on Slotjunkies but if you're anything like me, it's all well and good seeing names and stuff, but I want to know which slots have things like stacked wilds, free spins features and nice juicy multipliers that are going to change my life one day! Ok so I am an optimist, but that's why I play slots - for the adreneline rush of a big win.

In this article I have pulled out a number of online slots that have big multipliers during the bonus game. Most don't come close to the 300x multiplier you will find in 300 Shields mind you - that's a one-off but well worth a look. Invariably, the high multipler slots are all free spin bonus slots and many are what you call high variance slots too, but as the variance is usually higher, always play carefully. The potential for big wins always comes at a price and that usually takes the form of long barren spells, so don't overdo the bet size when playing these!

I have organised these by software as all the online casinos on the site licence in their casino software from one of four main providers: Microgaming, IGT, Playtech or Realtime Gaming (RTG). You will see in the right-hand sidebars throughout the site each casino and what software it uses, so just marry up the software and you can be sure the slot you want is at that casino. We'll start with ... IGT:

Aristocrat Slots

Two slots from Aristocrat really stand out when it comes to multipliers. Firstly the one with the biggest free spin multiplier is the Lucky 88 slot which, as you can probably guess, goes up to x88! You are basically in control here by having to choose between the number of free spins and the multipliers - x8, x18, x38 or x88 feature in there.

The Coy Sun Doa slot (which will probably be instantly familar to land-based casino players) has a very similar structure although the top multiplier here is less at a mere 30x! Once again you chosee the free spins/multipliers yourself depending on how much risk you want to take!

IGT Slots

IGT soaked up the online casino software provider Wagerworks, so where you see one mentioned invariably it refers to both. In a nutshell, Wagerworks created slot games of their own plus they have brought some of the more popular IGT slots online also. The first slot from IGT that springs to mind for good multipliers and free spins is Captain Quids Treasure which I have seen recently in my local land-based casino too. The free spins feature allows you to select certain points on a Treasure map, each one revealing either a free spin or a multiplier. It is a similar concept to the very popular Pharaoh's Fortune slot (not currently availabe online) and you can win up to 40 free spins with 10x multipliers! rare, but very nice if you can get it! A very similar slot is the 50000 Pyramid game which is essentially the same wolf in different clothing!

Most of you will no doubt be familiar with the Cleopatra slot machine but the interesting one for the purposes of this article is the follow-up slot, Cleopatra II. Once again we have a free spins bonus triggered by 3 scatters but this time, with every free spins you get awarded, the multiplier increases by x1. In theory, you could win up to 50 spins with the last spin being 50x but the reality is you get between 8 and 14 free spins so the highest multiplier will of course be 14x on the last spin. To get to the magic 50x you need a retrigger or 3 but that's the beauty of Cleo II. Say you get 11 spins initially, that takes you to 11x on the last spin but if you retriggered the bonus during those 11 spins, you get 11 more so your multiplier will continue up to 22x and so on!

Finally in the IGT slots section I have to mention the "Fortress of Fortunes" edition of the excellent Dungeons & Dragons slot. This one works like the aforementioned Captain Quids Treasure except that it also brings stacked wilds into the free spins. D&D awards up to 6x multiplier and in my experience about 19 free spins, but it's a very decent game.

Microgaming Slots

One of the hidden gems with big multipliers and a free spins bonus is the Dolphin Tale slot. Like most free spin slots, you get the free spins by getting 3 scatter symbols in view. You then get to pick a character and that determines how many spins and what multiplier you get on each spin. The less spins, the higher the multiplier. You could end up with 5 free spins at 20x, 10 spins at 12x or 25 spins at 5x, but there are plenty of options inbetween and there is some luck involved in picking, but it can be very lucrative.

Another slot in Microgaming's armoury that goes up to 25x is the Harveys slot. This works slightly differently in two ways. Firstly, the free spins are triggered by a Bonus symbol on reels 2 and 4, and secondly you get a random number of free spins (up to 30) where every win gets awarded a random multiplier from 2x to 25x. It's also quite low varaince so good for low rollers.

If you want something a little more "standard", then the high variance Egyptian themed Isis slot has a free spins bonus with a 6x multiplier on every win. You get 20 - 30 free spins (for 3, 4 or 5 scatters) and it can pay out huge if you are really lucky. I once had $49,000 from a $12.50 bet by getting 5 scatters in the free spins (600x x 6x). One of my favourite games but be warned, it really can eat your money. For the record, the drag-racer themed Supe It Up slot is an exact clone of Isis only in a different skin.
