Bolt X UP Slot (Microgaming)

Bolt X UP Slot (Microgaming)The X UP series keeps on growing, and Microgaming, together with Alchemy Gaming have added into a new slot called Bolt X UP, to the series.

This new title comes with special features, not to forget its excellent rewards with a much lower risk. Below are all the details that you may want to know about the Bolt XUP slot:

Game Set-Up

Bolt X UP has a standard game area, and by this, I’m talking about the common 5x3 reels. The developer has given the game up to 243 ways to win.

Several major features can be found inside among them the wild, free spins, X Up scatters, and some increasing multipliers.

Betting and Prizes

Considering that this is a ‘ways to win’ slot game, it’s only natural to get a simplified betting system. To play it for real money, you just need to select the wager amount that you are comfortable using from the allowed betting range of between $0.10 and $20 per spin.

Bolt X UP does a very good job with the payments, and you can hit wins of up to 10,935x the stake from just one round. However, you will need the help of some of the features to get to this level of payment.

What I find more impressive is the slot’s volatility which is at medium level, plus a very decent RTP of 96.22% that suits it well.

Bolt X UP Slot Features

One of the features inside is the expanding wild, and since it can appear on all the 5 reels, it has the potential to actually expand on all the reels.

In addition to acting as a substitute, the feature can also form its own winning combos, with each triggering payments of up to you 4.5x the stake. Considering that the slot has 243 ways to win, it means that there is potential to get payments of up to 1,093.5x the stake during the regular rounds.

Then comes my favourite feature, the scatter. It will have the image of an X UP logo, and it’s very especially useful if you can land it at least land three times on the slot’s middle reels.

Three scatters come with a reward of 8 free spins, and an extra 2 spins will reward you with 2 additional rounds.

Theme & Design

The symbols that the developer has used suggest that Bolt X UP is a classic fruit-themed slot.

Royals (10-A) are part of the symbols, and so are cherries, Bar logos, diamonds, Bells, and Sevens.


From what I experienced playing Bolt X UP, it is clear that the developer has maintained its original recipe, but with a new twist.

The X Up mechanic is still great, and it gives the slot a great potential despite the medium volatility.

The fruit theme is not all that impressive, but if you are looking for a decent real money slot, then Bolt X UP is a good choice.
