Crazy 80s Slots
If you like the neon colors, angular lines, and poofy hairstyles of 80s fashion and design, Crazy 80s is the ideal nine-liner for you. Some bettors may find the colors tough on the eyes; thankfully designer Microgaming has set the symbols and other features on a black background to absorb some of the colorful overkill. What puts this game in the “best of” category is the combination of a huge variety of available wagers and a well-developed (if a little bit garish) theme. Coins can be worth any of the following values: $0.25, $0.50, $1, $2.50, $5, $7.50, or $10 each. Since (like most games with nine lines) Crazy 80s only allows a single credit bet per line, available bet sizes range from $0.25 and $90 each round. Crazy 80s is thus one of the few nine-liners currently available at online casinos that high rollers can take a stab at.
A five reel and nine pay line game by Microgaming, Truck Stop is not exactly a feature-stuffed tour-de-force of slot machine game design. But it has a lot going for it. Truck Stop includes both a wild and a scatter symbol, a pair of features that go well together. Even with such a limited number of lines and reels, the designers have included plenty of variety. The coin value can be set to four different denominations: $0.25, $0.50, $1, or $2. Since bettors can only wager one credit per line, wager variety ranges from a quarter up to $18 per round. This nine-liner doesn’t require much concentration or much of a bankroll, which is fitting for a slot with a truck stop theme.
Our Thoughts on 9 Line Slots
Bettors won’t come across a huge variety of nine pay line machines at traditional brick and mortar casinos or Internet betting venues, but more than, say, ten line titles. Nine pay lines is an easy fit for machines with three symbols per reel. 9 line slots are another game arrangement being squeezed out by the increased popularity of small and large numbers of pay lines. Expect to see fewer and fewer such games as slot gamblers line up to play games with just one line or those with 50 or 100 lines.
