Microgaming has a history of making fun slot games based on major movies, like the Marvel series. Bridesmaids was no exception and the developer really ran with this one, making a very popular game that showcases high quality photography from the movie. This five-reel slot has no less than four bonus features to explore, leading to some potentially big wins.
Look and Feel
The first thing that hits you about Bridesmaids is the branding; you can immediately tell that this is an official game. The movie logo is displayed and the top and the game has a bright pink background with diamante trim around the reels. It feels like you’re playing in a bridal suite!
What really draws the eye, however, is the high-definition photo graphics showcasing the film’s six main characters. This artwork is rendered in clear quality while some symbols have alternative versions and three of the ladies have stacked symbols, to showcase them better. No shortcuts were taken in the design. All of the bonus rounds in Bridesmaids have been designed to fit the themes of the movie, such as friendship and memorable moments. The bonuses are strengthened even more by the inclusion of some clips from the film, showing some of the funniest highlights.
Perhaps this slot is aimed more at women than men, but the core gameplay is strong and interesting enough to catch anyone’s attention. This is a five-reel game with 40 paylines, so it has enough complexity to draw you in.
There are four card suit symbols for basic wins, with the Bridesmaids representing the bigger wins, from Becca up to Lillian. Watch out for the movie logo which is a stacked wild. However, the varied bonus rounds are what makes this game stand out and give a unique feel to the gameplay.
Players can toggle their stake with a minimum bet of 0.40 coins and a max stake sitting at 60 coins. The base game jackpot is $8,000.
The key to Bridesmaids is getting three cupcake scatters anywhere in view. This triggers the Bonus Wheel, which is the gateway to all the bonuses. The wheel spins to give you one of ten cash prizes, the jackpot, or one of the four bonus rounds. Cupcake boosters increase those wins.
Landing the Boutique Bonus starts a matching game; match pairs to win prizes and multipliers. The round ends if you find Lillian. This round showcases some great graphics. The Magic Moments feature is a series of snapshots to pick from, with prizes behind each one apart from an ‘end feature’.
Next there’s two free spin features. The Friendship Free Spins gives out ten spins where there are stacked symbols and wins pay both ways across the reels, plus it can be retriggered. Finally, the Flying High Free Spins again gives ten spins, with rolling reels which award consecutive wins as new symbols drop in to replace winners. This also features growing wilds, which stack with each spin up to a whopping 13.
