Kiss Slot Review
Online slots meet glam rock in a WMS game with 100 paylines spread across two sets of reels. The Kiss slot features Colossal Reels, free spins, and special symbols.
Based on the famous rock group of the same name, the online slot also features ample concert footage and a soundtrack of some of the band’s classic hits. All the action takes place against a stage backdrop, complete with lighting and equipment.
The game was launched at the 12th Global Gaming Expo, held in the United States, to rave reviews, especially as it was the online slot that premiered WMS’ Colossal Reels feature. The feature sees players spinning two sets of reels; one of 5×4 reels with 20 paylines, the other with 5×12 reels with 80 paylines.
Symbols Rock the Reels
The reels of Kiss slot feature a mix of band-themed symbols and playing card symbols. The themed symbols are those with the higher values, which means they pay out more, while the playing card symbols are those with lower values.
The themed symbols include the four individual members of the band in all their glory, the four members together as a group, a guitar, a plectrum, the game logo, and the incredibly big tongue of Demon, also known more plainly as Gene Simmons, which is the jackpot symbol.
The playing card symbols include A, K, Q, and J. Symbols can appear stacked on the reels.
The four band members together are the online slot’s Wild symbol, and the game logo is the Feature symbol.
Feature Symbol for Free Spins
The Kiss slot logo only appears on the first, third, and fifth reels, and while its appearance may be limited, this symbol is what players need to unlock the game’s free spins features.
When three or more appear on those reels, a backstage pass will appear on the screen, and players need to select one of three options; the Kiss Alive bonus, the Band Prize, or the Rock n Records bonus.
If three symbols activated the feature, players will receive eight free spins with a 2x multiplier for wins; if four symbols activated the feature, players will receive 12 free spins with a 5x multiplier; and if five symbols activated the feature, players will receive 20 free spins with a 20x multiplier.
Kiss Slot Wild Symbol
The band member group shot Wild symbol can also make a big difference when it appears on the reels. It has the ability to substitute for the other reel symbols except the Feature symbol, which means it can help complete pay table combinations.
The Wild can also expand to cover an entire reel, and during the free spins games, it acts as a nudging Wild on the first, third, and fifth reels. This means that it can appear on the corresponding reel on the other reel set.
Using the Autoplay feature, players can set the Kiss slot to play itself. Players can find controls to set the game to play for a specified number of spins, or until certain conditions are fulfilled.
Those conditions may be to stop if the jackpot is one, or to stop if players’ credits decrease to a specified amount. The Autoplay feature can also be stopped at any point while the feature is active.
