5 reels and a superb 40 paylines are occupied by symbols of the era: Billy, a newspaper, car, cigar lounge, dice, whiskey, casino, femme fatale feline and a teacup. Gotta say Billy – that teacup detracts from your hardcore criminal image!
Billy’s the scatter while the casino is the wild which substitutes for everything except the scatter.
Amatic has a unique control panel that’s easy to use. From the left: Auto Start, Exit, Gamble. Bet, Bet Amount Display, and a Start (or spin) button.
In the freewheeling spirit of the game, the AutoStart has no advanced stop settings, so once you start, you’ll have to stop it manually.
3 or more Billy Symbols wins 7 Free Spins which are played with the same bet and line numbers as your activating spin. Before your Free Spins, an extra wild symbol is randomly selected and substitutes for all symbols except Billy. More Free Spins can be re-triggered, but once all are finished, you’re returned to the main game.
After each winning spin, you got the option of a gamble. The fun part about this is that there are two options: The first is a double or nothing card choice of color only. The second is a 4x or nothing bet, having to choose color and suit. How brave are you feeling? Decisions, decisions.
Are you sitting down for this? The best aspect of this game is that you could win 10 000x your bet – sometimes just the possibility of an enormous win is the greatest feature any game could have!
This classic animated video game works well on all electronics. Mr. Billy is no Tom Cat – he is a sophisticated kitty who enjoys the finer things in life such as esquist tea and handmade cigars. The backdrop is simple, but when there is a winning reel, the game lights up with appropriate sound effects and unique character traits depending on the winning symbol. The high chance of striking lucky call for it to join the regular list of games to visit. A great nostalgic game by Amatic.
