Shopping Spree II is an online slot machine powered by Realtime Gaming. It’s different than most games on the RTG network because it has a network wide progressive jackpot. The progressive is usually in the six figure range; which is attractive to any player. The game is a sequel to the original Shopping Spree slot, which also is a progressive slot game.
When you first enter the game you are greeted with upscale department store graphics in the background, and a standard slot game layout. There are 5-reels and 9-fixed pay lines. When the pay lines are fixed, players may not decrease the active pay lines in the game. This is in place to ensure that all players will contribute an equal amount to the jackpot; giving players an equal shot of winning the jackpot.
The symbols, graphics and sounds are attractive. The colors are bright and inviting while smooth, upbeat music plays while you spin the reels. The symbols in the game consist of shoes, jewelry, handbags, credit cards, shopping bags, cell phone, sunglasses and a woman.
There are no coin denominations as you have only one option. The minimum and maximum bet is a bit steep for the average player at $2.25 per spin; however the winning opportunity could be incredible if lady luck is on your side.
Wilds and Scatters
Wilds are popular in any slot game, and Shopping Spree II has a non-traditional style wild symbol. The sale tag is wild and appears only on reel three. It will complete winning symbol combinations besides the scatter, and multiplies the wins it helps complete up to 20x. This will help in bringing you more wins. Five ladies on a pay line with a sale tag substitute symbol could win the player up to 50,000 depending on the multiplier.
The scatter is the Shopping Spree II logo. This symbol will not only give scatter payouts for 4 or more symbols, it also activates the free game feature. Scatter symbols do not need to land on a pay line to win, making it easier to trigger the feature.
Free Games and Bonus Feature
Three or more scatter symbols will initiate the free game bonus feature. The player will be given 9 free spins to start; during the free spins you will win bonus amounts in increments of 100 up to 1,000 points. These will help you once the free spins end, so you want to earn as many points as possible.
After the free games end you are taken to the bonus feature where the tally of points won during the 9 games before are added up. For every 1,000 points earned you will get an additional 3 free games; the maximum additional free spins possible during the bonus is 12. The wild appears on the entire reel during the free games. When the feature ends, you are returned to the normal game and wins from the feature are added to the balance.
The huge progressive jackpot is awarded for 5 diamond ring symbols appearing on any pay line with a wild Sale Tag x20. The amount of the jackpot is displayed on top of the reels for reference. The amount is always a large sum, and is reset once won; it will then continue to grow until won again. The wagers placed during the game are contributed to the prize pool, so it grows quickly. This is a network wide progressive so all RTG casinos who offer the game will have the same jackpot. Most Realtime Gaming casinos are USA friendly.
