Patriotic Play with "Bars and Stripes" Video Slots
The Bars and Stripes video slots game by Microgaming packs a patriotic punch, offering five reels and twenty-five pay lines with an atmosphere of patriotic tunes in the background and playing symbols of down-home Americana, including the Bald Eagle, hot dogs, beer steins, apple pie, burger and fries, Oreos, Uncle Sam's Hat, footballs, Thanksgiving turkeys, the Statue of Liberty, and Old Glory herself-- all of which score wins when two to five matching symbols appear in an active pay line. For any pay line where more than one winning combination appears, only the highest paying one of those two will actually pay out. You can play this patriotic slot at Winner Casino or any other leading Microgaming casino. Ever since the US made most online gambling illegal, it is hard to find patriotic games!
The patriotic player begins by selecting the monetary denomination (from a penny to one dollar) that the game's coins will represent, choosing a number of coins (between one and ten) to wager on each pay line, and selecting which of the pay lines to activate, before setting off the spin to win. In making wagering choices, a player should keep in mind that any pay line left UN-activated won't pay out a win even if a winning combination shows up on that line.
A box containing the "Bars and Stripes game logo serves as the Wild symbol, substituting for any other icon (except the Scatter) in enabling you to line up a winning row of matches for a jackpot win. Whenever a Wild symbol acts as part of a winning line-up, you also double your winnings for every Wild symbol in the row. Multiples of the Wild symbol itself on an active pay line result in one of the game's biggest payouts.
The football serves as the Scatter symbol, multiplying the amount of your original wager by two, by twenty, or by two hundred (respectively) when three, four, or five of the scatter symbols appear on a spin.
The appearance of three or more of Uncle Sam's Hats on a spin will trigger the Bonus Game, in which you get to select several hats to see what prizes or multipliers are underneath. The number of prize hats you get to select is determined by the number of times the symbol appeared in the spin that triggered the bonus round.
