Overview & Opinions
Fantastic beasts are a staple of the slot world, and here is a slot from Barcrest dedicated to the mysterious Bigfoot creature, also known as Sasquatch.
This game was developed by Barcrest, but in some online casinos you will find it listed as an SG Gaming slot.
Theme and symbols
The theme is Bigfoot. Examples of symbols that can show up on the reels are Bigfoot (who is a wild), Bigfoot footprints (a scatter symbol), and a bunch of other wild creatures: the wolf, the cougar, the moose, the racoon, the eagle, and the beaver.
Traditional card symbols are also included, which is a bit boring. It would have been more fun if Barcrest had put some more effort in and created more forest symbols instead.
The footprint is a scatter and scatters can pay you even when they don´t line up neatly on a payline. You only need two footprint symbols, anywhere on the reels, to win 2x your bet. The highest scatter pay is 100x for five footprints.
The footprints are also your key to free spins.
You need at least three footprint symbols – located on reels 1, 3 and 5 – to trigger the free spins round. It is possible to trigger new free spins during free spins, which can amount to a very large number of free spins in a row.
The free spins feature have six levels.
First level: 8 free spins with 2 random wilds added
Second level: 7 free spins with 3 random wilds added
Third level: 6 free spins with 4 random wilds added
Fourth level: 5 free spins with 5 random wilds added
Fifth level: 4 free spins with 6 random wilds added
Sixth level: 3 free spins with 7 random wilds added
Swap symbol feature
The swap symbol feature swaps a symbol to help you complete a combination.
Random wilds are extra wilds that can be randomly added to the reels.
On this slot, reels 2 or 4 can go completely wild.
Re-spin is a feature where any scatters are stored in the footprints of Big Foot and a re-spin is awarded.
This is a feature where reel 5 is re-spun in an attempt to trigger the free spins feature.
Big Bet option
The Big Bet option offers linked spins, but only if you make a Big Bet. For 20.00 you buy yourself an increased chance of Big Foot making an appearance in the base game. (The Big Foot symbol is linked to the various special features.) For 30.00 you buy an increased chance of Big Foot showing up in the base game AND of landing double-height scatter symbols in the base game. For 50.00 buy an increased chance of Big Foot showing up in the base game AND of landing double-height scatter symbols in the base game and special feature game.
When you make a Big Bet, you increase the statistical chance of being paid. Without any Big Bet, the RTP of this game is 94% which is rather low. On a 50.00 bet, the RTP is 98% which is very high.
Autoplay is available for this slot.
Barcrest was founded in England in 1968. Back then, it was producing classic ”fruit machines” for bingo halls, arcades and pubs. In the 1990s, Barcrest became a part of International Game Technology. Today, it is included in the Scientific Games group, which is why Barcrest games sometimes show up as SG games in casinos.
