888 has released another movie-based slot called The Big Lebowski, themed on the homonymous movie directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, starring Jeff Bridges. "The Dude" Lebowski, a Los Angeles slacker and avid bowler who is assaulted as a result of mistaken identity learns of a millionaire also named Jeffrey Lebowski who was the intended victim. When the millionaire Lebowski's trophy wife is kidnapped, he commissions The Dude to deliver the ransom to secure her release and the fun part starts.
This comedy-themed game is packed with attractive graphics, featuring bowling balls and movie characters as icons, while interesting features and bonuses add to the overall appeal. The exciting novelty is the Spare Free Spins round. This one gives you a chance for big wins, spinning once again for free whenever your spin ends with a non-winning combination. What's more, you can win some really alluring amounts if you hit the Progressive jackpot.
Play Big Lebowski
The game starts with an intro from the movie and a catchy country music, bringing you slowly into the bowling hall with Lebowski on the scene. The graphics are smoothly finished with nice splash of colours. The symbols include some low-paying bowling ball icons in different colours and high-paying movie characters such as The Dude, Jesus Quintana, Walter Sobchak, Theodore Kerabatsos, Maude Lebowski. Car icon acts as Wild in the game while Can is a bonus symbol. At the bottom of the screen the bonus explanations will pop up occasionally. At times you will see the famous Dude sentence: ”This aggression will not stand man!”.
How to play
Select coin value from $0.01 to $10 and choose from 25 bet lines, placing total wager between $0.25 and $250 per single spin.
Bowling Ball acting as a Spin button is found in the bottom right hand corner, with Turbo symbol is positioned directly below.
Dude is the highest paying icon in the game, awarding 1,000 credits or up to $10,000 when five of these appear on any active payline.
Strategy & Tips
Car Wild symbol substitutes for all the other icons with the exception of Scatter. When it appears on reel 3 it will expand to cover the entire reel.
