Girls with Guns is an entertaining slot from MicroGaming based around the adventures of six girls. The gang is led by red-head Katherine. She is joined by Maria on artillery, Kira who is a sniper, Alex on demolition, Zoe who is the tactical master and Jess, the infiltrator. The game gives more than a nod to the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ franchise, especially when you see the special wild symbol and the ‘Charlie’ character.
The game is made more interesting by the use of the all-ways winning system, giving 243 ways to win for each spin. With added expanding wilds and a free spins round, these girls with guns grab you from the start.
This jungle based MicroGaming design is played out on five reels. The game has the all-ways winning system in place. This means that wins come along when you land symbols on consecutive reels from left to right, irrespective of the position on the reels.
The six girls are the highest paying symbols in the game. Katherine has a top prize of 600 coins when appearing on all five reels. Maria is next on the pay table offering a win amount of 350 coins. Kira, Alex, Zoe and Jess have top wins of 300, 275, 250 and 225 coins respectively.
The next highest paying symbol shows a man in a white suit sitting at a desk. He smokes a cigar and looks like the boss much in the ‘Charlie’ mould. He pays 200 coins. Joining ‘Charlie’ are a pair of fighters complete with guns and an army camp scene, which pay 175 and 150 coins. The standard symbols are completed by the playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.
Girls with Guns has two different wild symbols, and each are excellent in their own way. The first is represented by the logo of the slot and this is stacked on all five reels. This symbol will substitute for every other symbol in the game apart from the scatter (as will the subsequent wild). This logo wild is also the highest paying symbol in the game, with 400 coins coming your way when hitting the symbol on all five reels. Being stacked, this can lead to multiple wild wins too.
The second wild symbol shows a silhouette of the six girls set against a fiery orange background. This wild symbol only makes an appearance on reel three. When you do see it, it will expand to fill the entire reel, ensuring wins are easier to come by. When expanding, the reel will now show one of the six girls filling the entire reel.
The final symbol in the game is the scatter which shows a heart shaped grenade. This offers an instant win when two or more land anywhere on the reels, up to an amazing 3,000 coins. Land three or more and you’ll also gain entry into the free spins feature round.
You’ll have 15 free spins in total. Each of these spins is made more interesting by the addition of a completely wild reel. This wild reel joins the stacked wilds and can make for some hugely profitable spins.
Girls with Guns has an impressive design. Each of the symbols has been drawn in a cartoon style, with added animation doing a fine job of bringing the characters to life. It’s clear that MicroGaming have made an effort to give each of the girls their own individual character.
Visuals are most impressive when the special wild appears and one of the girls appears ‘full reel’. Some of the detail in the slot is excellent too. The background shows a jungle scene and at first you think that the scene is just an image, like it would be at most other slots. However, look closely and you’ll see leaves swaying in the wind and flocks of birds moving across the sky. The soundtrack to the game is excellent too, the high-octane action track perfectly fitting.
This military themed slot is excellent from start to finish. The sound and graphics draw you in to the game from the very start and these only improve as the game goes on. The game play is compelling too. With two different wilds, the slot has a unique feel, which is only added to by the all-ways winning system in place. Throw in the extra wild reel in the feature and you have a slot which just keeps giving.
