Bamboo Rush Slot Machine: a Review from a Real Gamer
Betsoft has come up with a new addition to their long list of slots. This new game going by the name Bamboo Rush will take you on a journey through the mountain path that ends up at a beautiful secret garden, in the Republic of China. This theme is quite popular and most developers who have a keen eye on Panda bears and the region’s nature often go for it.
This latest slot from Betsoft features 5x4 reels with a whopping 1024 ways to win! Bamboo Rush has very good features and my favourite is the potential to get up to 27xs multipliers within the free spins (this is through the wild symbols). Bamboo Rush has a potentially high payout that can go to as high as 11,520x total stake ($230,400). However, I was a little disappointed by the slots RTP which is at below-average of 95.375%.
Betting and Prizes
In the Bamboo Rush slot, you can use as low as 20 coins to wager your bet selection. Since the wager selection represents the whole amount and not just the coin value, it means that the game value is between $0.20 and $20 (maximum of $1 per line).
The game may look like it has very good profit but it is very volatile and you may need to consider that before plunging in!
Bamboo Rush Slot Features
Bamboo Rush has a list of features that look quite interesting and the multipliers seem to be of serious size.
There are Wild symbols that are very useful for both the regular as well as the free spins. However, please note that the latter is the only one that bears these multipliers. Within the slot’s regular mode, the wild is used as a substitute. If you can manage to get it to land on a reel which is part of a win, this wild symbol will become automatic booster to a winning combo.
The scatter symbol on Bamboo Rush is the Golden Panda. This can help you trigger 20 free spins if it continuously lands on the reels. Betsoft allows you to retrigger this feature.
Wild symbols are some of the best symbols on the Bamboo Rush as they offer you a chance to gain the ability to get 2xs or even 3xs multipliers to a winning combo. Given that there are about three wilds present in a single combo, it means a possibility of getting up to a multiplier of 27xs.
Theme & Design
Bamboo Rush is a Chinese-themed slot which means that it’s not unusual for Betsoft to use Panda bears in most of the game’s symbols. There are also some Chinese-inspired graphics like temples, lotus flowers, Yin Yang logos, gold coins and a list of very boring multi-coloured Royals. All these are not new in the slot industry and the game's graphics are average-looking.
Betsoft uses an OK design for Bamboo Rush. The slot’s huge payouts coupled with the exciting wild multipliers make this slot stand out from the crowd. However, its low RTP ruined my excitement as I had hoped that Betsoft would offer the standard RTP of not less than 96%.
