Chess Mate is arguably one of the more successful online slots from MultiSlot.
Few casino software providers have chosen to tackle chess as the theme for their games, so right off the bat, it can be said that Chess Mate is original, inventive and creative.
The game offers colourful and exciting gameplay and is rapidly becoming one of the more memorable titles from MultiSlot.
Look and feel
Chess Mate doesn’t just utilise the pieces from a typical game of chess as symbols on its reels.
It has redesigned those symbols to resemble people, with some of the more memorable pieces (such as bishops, rooks and queens) being represented on the reels alongside the customary high-playing card icons.
As is always the case with slots, the high playing card symbols are worth considerably less than the more thematic imagery in the game.
Chess may be totally original in its theme, but its wagering range is quite predictable and simplistic. Players will note that there are 25 paylines spread over this slot’s 5 reels.
Those lines can be altered to give players more control over their bets, with the total wagering range ultimately stemming from 1p per line per spin, up to £125 per spin in all.
Players who hope to strike it lucky playing the Chess Mate slot can hope to scoop non-progressive jackpots which his worth around 20,000 coins in all.
To bag that prize, players need to land 5 wild symbols on any active line. The most you can win with the chess symbols is 3,000 coins, so there is quite some distance between that and the non-progressive prize.
Wild symbols appear as a black and white emblem. Wild symbols can replace all other icons save for bonus and scatter symbols, and can dish out the non-progressive prize, as we’ve said.
Scatters appear as knights, and can dish out scattered wins worth 3x, 6x or 9x your total bet when 3, 4 or 5 appear anywhere on the reels.
The free spins bonus which follows is triggered once you play another chess-related minigame. Bonus round symbols take the shape of the queen (albeit different from the standard paying queen symbols).
Landing 3 of these will allow players to choose a chessboard from those offered to pocket an instant win prize.
