Released in the spring of 2019, Snakes and Ladders Slot from InTouch Games is based on the classic board game while offering rather more excitement! It follows a standard 5×3 structure, with just nine Paylines.
Embark on a potentially hazardous journey through the sandy, picturesque desert – but be aware it’s full of skulls and serpents that you have to make your way through if you want to grab the amazing prizes and the cash that’s hidden in the cacti at the end!
How to play
Minimum bet is 0.1, the maximum a high-rolling 20. It couldn’t be easier to start playing Snakes and Ladders Slot – just hit Spin and you’re away! And this game, as players have come to expect, works just as well on mobile as it does on laptop or PC.
Just as with the board game, in the mini-game you’ll either climb your way to success or slither back down to where you began.
In standard fashion, Paylines only pay out from left to right. Land two or in some cases three similar symbols on a Payline to scoop a win.
And the good news is that, whenever you bag a win, not only are all the details clearly highlighted, but you will be able to enjoy a multiplier of your initial bet per line.
You can win just once on any one Payline – if you win more than that, only the highest one is paid.
Symbols include cacti, animal skulls and the usual playing-card values, here done with a bright, almost garish design.
Snakes and Ladders Slot Special Features
The ladder icon is the Scatter in Snakes and Ladders Slot, which also features a Wild symbol. The Wild does its usual thing of replacing other emblems, bar the mini-game, Scatter and JACKPOT ones.
Line up between three and five Scatter icons on a Payline to enjoy five, seven or nine free whirls. You will need to play them with the same bet amount as the one you won them with.
Snakes and Ladders Mini-Game
Initiate this by lining up at least two of the dice symbols. (The more of these you have on the Payline, the greater the subsequent multipliers.) It plays pretty much like the board game version – roll the dice and move that number of squares.
Land at the foot of a ladder and you can climb – reach the head of a snake and slither downwards. You will win the multiplier you land on first.
Snakes and Ladders Slot features a progressive jackpot, which is not shared with any other game.
It’s yours if you land five of the JACKPOT icons on an active Payline – and this is something you can do on any bet. (Some 0.005% of your stake goes towards the progressive pot.)
Once the top prize has been scooped, it resets, and the tally begins to climb once more. More than one win can occur at the same time. Its ‘seed’ value kicks off from 2,000 coins.
Return to Player
RTP or Return to Player in Snakes and Ladders Slot is a theoretical 93.05%, based on long-term playback.
As is typical with games with a progressive jackpot, the tally is somewhat below average.
Snakes and Ladders Slot could be a good one for you if you hanker after the board games of your childhood!
What’s more, it’s not overly complicated, so it could be a good one if you just fancy turning those reels for a while.
