The X Factor is a 5 reel (non-progressive), 20-payline, Random-logic Video Slot. It comes with a scatter symbol, free spin and has a maximum jackpot win of $250,000.
The X Factor is the hottest TV show on Saturday night and has enjoyed so much success that it has been transformed into a five reel, 20 payline slot in collaboration with Wagerworks. The slot includes the chance to win ‘boot camp’ inspired free spins and even take on the judges during the bonus round to win up to 200x your line stake.
The slot is emblazoned with various X Factor logos and references from the outset. This includes the background which depicts an audience in front of the judges and stage. The reels are laid out in a five by three format with 15 vibrant icons at show at all times.
These icons include compact disks, speakers, X Factor icons, audition badges, microphones, male singers, female singers and silhouettes of other singers. These all include some form of animation, for example the disk spins to reveal the X Factor logo and the silhouette raises the mic for an epic solo.
Each spin plays the first few beats of the X Factor theme tune which threatens to burst into the full tune at any moment (it actually kicks in during big wins and the bonus round). Other sound effects accompany various wins which include cheering crowds and booming music, if you are a fan of the show then you’ll enjoy the effects but there is an option to mute them if you so wish.
This slot is aimed primarily at low stakes to mid stakes players with a betting range of 0.10 to £/$/€20 per spin. Wagerworks has included an auto spin feature which can be set to 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 spins.
Various aspects of the real show are worked into the slot, these include the free spins feature which is entitled ‘boot camp’. Three boot camp symbols awards 5 free spins, four awards 10 free spins and five awards the maximum of 15 free spins. This is a fairly standard slot feature which has been jazzed up a little.
During the round you collect stars, if 10 are collected you’ll advance to the ‘live final’ which offers the only chance of winning the maximum payout shown above.
The Judges Bonus round is triggered in the same way with three or more icons. The number of triggering icons affects the maximum amount which can be won, so 3 icons can award up to 20x your line stake, 4 icons pays up to 50x and 5 icons pays up to 200x. The round is fairly simple and involves you clicking ‘reveal verdict’ to see if you progress. You’ll either receive a yes or a no, with the latter returning you to the reels. If you receive a yes you’ll get the option to double or nothing your winnings based on the next judges answer.
The X Factor Slot capitalizes on a white hot theme which die hard fans will love, others may feel differently though as the slot lacks some features found on other slots in this genre.
