Following his entrée onto the American cinematic scene in the early 1970s, Lee Jun-fan transformed the perceptions of Asians in the United States from the inscrutable persona of Charlie Chan to the lithe ninja-like martial arts expert better known by his stage name, Bruce Lee. An instant cultural icon, his popularity only soared following his untimely 1973 death. WMS Sots has since leveraged this popularity with the release of Bruce Lee slot machines that feature state-of-the-art software allowing the game to join the litany of WMS titles offered on a mobile platform. For fans of progressive jackpots and the thematic styling of Bruce Lee, Bruce Lee slots provide an excellent opportunity to indulge in both of those passions.
Packing nearly as powerful of a punch as the legendary martial arts himself, this five-reel, and sixty-payline game delivers impressive cash prizes. In fact, owing to the large number of symbols and paylines offered, players can accrue healthy payouts playing WMS’s Bruce Lee. Wins are accumulated when consecutive matching symbols array on your visible reels from left to right along a single payline.
Players familiar with WMS slots are aware of their “Money Burst” format, and Bruce Lee slots falls into this category, which differs in significant ways from standard reel slot machines. In the Money Burst format, the first two reels are different in that they only have two symbols while reels three, four, and five feature four symbols. As such, the first two reels take on increased importance as they are the linchpin to deciding whether your spin will help form a winning combination with the remaining three wheels.
Keeping with their theme, designers chose a distinctly Asiatic look to their symbols, which provides an exotic feel to the game play as if you are actually playing in Lee’s hometown of Hong Kong. Offering both scatter symbols and free spin features, you will want to keep your eyes open for these important symbols:
When it comes to specialty symbols in the game, you get a lot for your money with the “Wild” icon represented by the Martial Arts master himself, a young Bruce Lee. The Wild icon not only has the ability to substitute for all other symbols in the game with the exception of the Treasure Chest, it is also an expanding “Wild” that lights up the whole board when it hits. Finally, five wild symbols arrayed across the reels represent the game’s highest payout.
The Treasure Chest is the game’s scatter symbol and serves as your gateway to the bonus rounds on Bruce Lee slots. The Treasure Chests only appear on reels three, four, and five, and if you manage to land three of them, you will trigger the game’s free spin bonus feature. Ironically, the Treasure Chests to not earn the player any treasure on their own, there is no prize associate with scoring them, but garnering them unleashes five free spins. You will note that the first two reels stay locked in place with the remaining three wheels spinning freely. As you can imagine, locking in a Wild symbol on either of those first two reels will result in significant payouts to the player.
Born in the United States, Bruce Lee grew up in the sprawling city of Hong Kong where he was child actor before moving back to the United States when he turned eighteen. A devout student of the martial art of Wing Chun, specializing in close combat, Lee began teaching his own form of martial arts in the greater Seattle area where he caught the attention of Kung Fu enthusiasts around the country. Indeed, for a half a decade the former child actor gave up his acting career in favor of developing his particular set of lethal skills. Obviously, the break was only temporary, and Lee earned his first stateside acting credit as Kato in the 1960s television series, The Green Hornet. Soon, he was offered larger and larger roles until his 1972 breakout performance in Fists of Fury. Widely regarded as the premiere martial arts performer to ever grace the screen, Bruce Lee sadly passed away in 1973 at only 32-years of age. In his short time acting, Bruce Lee cast a huge shadow that stretches until today.
