20p Slot is a classic retro fruit slot from Inspired Gaming, a US company who design online slot software and create slot machines for pubs, bars, and restaurants.
This is a pretty simple slot no doubt made for players who enjoy back to basics slots reminiscent of 1980s and 1990s slot machines; there are few special features on offer here, but lots of classic slot fun.
20p Slot is a simple slot with just five paylines in play. As the slot’s title suggests, bets can be made from 20p upwards, rising to $150 if players turn Fortune Bet on – more about that feature later. To win, all you have to do is match sets of three identical symbols across one of the slot’s five paylines. Red and gold 20p slot coins payout 500x and 2500x the line bet respectively, while strawberries and bells payout 200x the line bet and grapes and watermelons payout 100x the line bet.
20p Slot isn’t a contemporary slot packed with features like most of those slots by big-name online developers like NetEnt and Play’n GO. Instead, Inspired Gaming have gone back to basics and stripped this slot down to the – almost – bare minimum. The sole special feature available is the Fortune Bet option, which players can toggle on and off at will. Turn it on to add an extra 50% to your wager and reap the benefits – this will make the game’s top-paying golden coin symbol Wild. While it might not sound like a game-changer, actually this can make a big difference to your win ratio considering there are only ever nine symbols on the display at once. We’d recommend turning this on, though of course, some risk-averse players will dislike the idea of additional wagers.
The return to player, or RTP, of 20p Slot, is 95%. What this means is that if you spend $100 playing the game, you’re likely to win back $95 on average. This is just a little below the average for a modern online slot of around 96%, so it shouldn’t be too off-putting if you love and enjoy the slot, but it’s worth bearing in mind if you’re keen to maximise your chances of winning. It’s also a medium variance slot, so it offers a good balance of win size and frequency for most players.
20p Slot, from its title to its design and down to its gameplay, makes no bones about the fact that it’s a simple slot. If you’re only fond of slots with added bonus features, 3D graphics, and randomly triggering events – this slot is not for you. However, if you’re in the market for a simple slot designed around the classic slot machines of yesteryear, you might want to give this a spin. Although the RTP is low for a modern slot, it’s not bad compared to other retro slots – many of which are adapted from older slot machines with much lower returns – and the Fortune Bet feature is a nice way to add a little ‘strategy’ to your bets.
