Game in Focus: Devil’s Lock

Devil's Lock is a traditional 5x3 reel video slot by Bragg Gaming partner Bluberi Studios, now available at Golden Nugget Casino Michigan.Devil’s Lock by Bluberi features a traditional 5×3 layout and 40 paylines. It has low volatility and a maximum RTP of 96.3%, though this is subject to configuration by the operator.

The game offers players a few special features, including the eponymous Devil’s Lock, with the potential to win one of four jackpots, free spins, and a rewind feature.

The centerpiece of the slot is the Devil Wild, which appears only on the middle reel. As well as substituting for other symbols, the Wild can trigger the game’s bonus features. The Devil’s Lock is activated when the player lands the Wild with one or more cash symbols. The Wild unlocks the value of those symbols, which could include one of the four jackpots, and the player wins the cash prize.

Additionally, each time the Wild appears, it feeds coins to one of two piggy banks on top of the reels. After each coin, the piggy banks have a random chance to award six free spins. The Devil Wild remains locked in place during this feature, increasing the likelihood of a win.

Meanwhile, the rewind feature can be triggered randomly during the base game or free spins. The center reel can randomly rewind the existing symbol for a chance to land a Devil Wild. Also, each time the Wild appears on the center reel, any of the other reels can randomly rewind to land on a cash value symbol or one of the four jackpots.
