In North America, the legendary creature Bigfoot or Sasquatch is said to be a large furry gorilla-like humanoid figure. Over the years, there have been blurry photos and videos purporting to show this creature otherwise unknown to science, most of which are generally considered to be hoaxes. Still, the legend has plenty of believers.
And interestingly enough, other cultures around the world have their own versions of this story. For example, the Yeti or Abominable Snowman hails from the Himalayas and Nepal.
Whatever the truth of the matter, you can pursue the elusive furry biped online in this slot from Nextgen Gaming.
Bigfoot Slot Layout
The base game is a 25-line slot, with 5 reels and 3 visible symbols on each.
The symbols include a bespectacled searcher, a river flowing through the forest, and my favorite, a bigfoot crossing traffic sign! The playing card ranks from 9 to Ace round out the inventory.
Expect mild payouts during the base game, because the bonus rounds are where the real action lies.
The Bigfoot Feature
Get three Bigfoot symbols on reels 2,3 and 4, and you will be rewarded with a visit to the Bigfoot Feature. Also good news, Bigfoot is a wild symbol too. Here’s a trigger of the bonus round:
Inside the bonus round, you will see five sets of eyes peering at your from the darkness of the forest. You can reveal three of the five sets, each time getting a prize. Often, the eyes are revealed to belong to a racoon or an owl. The best prize, and of course the most elusive is Bigfoot himself. But don’t expect to see him very often. For example, don’t assume that he’s always among the five set of eyes, because in my experience that was obviously not the case.
With or without Bigfoot the bonus round features strong prize amounts, usually at least 15 or 20 times the bet size.
Bigfoot Free Games Feature
Slightly less common than the Bigfoot feature, get three Bigfoot footprints anywhere on the reels, and you’ll be awarded 10 free spins at 2X pay. When you hit the combination, a snowstorm blows across the screen and presents you with a snow-covered forest background for the free games.
Just triggering the feature gets you off to a good start, because the footprint scatter pay alone pays 5X your bet. If you happen to catch 4 of them, that pays 15X, while 5 footprints pays 100X.
There is not much fanfare during the free spins, but with 2X pays the wins can add up fast.
Whether you believe that Bigfoot is real or not, you’ll have fun trying to sight three of his furry symbols on this game. Check out the list below to see which of the NJOC offer Bigfoot, the slot.
