Each and every week we here at Stakers review a game from our collection because we want you to be informed about the games you play at our online casino. This week we decided to try out It's Time by Relax Gaming. It has interesting looking animation and we wanted to discover what it's all about. And now we'll share our experience with you!
The gameplay area is laid out in a six by four grid. The background is a wrestling cage. And while you have the standard playing card icons, for the bigger money you are going to want to keep an eye out for several wrestlers and an announcer as icons.
As usual, your goal is to score three of the same icon in a row. There is no wild card, and there is no scatter. Instead, you have two main features.
The first one randomly puts a hot spot in the center of the reels. Get four of the same icon within the hot spot, and they will all stay there for one extra free spin. This gives you a decent chance of spinning a win.
The second feature is one in which you can try to get reel one and reel five filled up all with the same icon. When you do this, you are taken to a different screen. Here, the announcer fills up the first and fifth reels.
Then you are awarded three “rounds” of spins. If during those spins you get an announcer, it resets back to three free rounds. If you don't, it spins again. This allows you to fairly easily fill up the interior of the grid with announcer icons. The more you land, the bigger the win you will receive. We filled up all but one of the spots with announcers and won 217 credits. Not bad!
Unfortunately, this feature very rarely kicks in. We got it one time during our two hours of play. It would have been really nice if it had come up on the reels a bit more often.
Because of that, we have to rate this a very high variance game. We were down 125 credits when the feature popped up. That's a pretty heavy investment for many people to make.
However, we know there are people who like high variance games and they will certainly find this to be one of them. For those players it's a great game.
Overall, we liked the game. But it did feel like we were never going to win. The wins outside of the bonus feature are few and far between. So, go in with a big bank roll and be warned.
We give this game three out of five stars. It's not the best game we've played but it's far from the worst. It just takes a bit of money and patience. Some people are going to be willing to put in the time chasing that big win. Others won't be as up for it. We did like it, but we just wish the wins have been more forthcoming.
