Dice Express is a 5 reel (non-progressive), 21-payline, Viaden Video Slot. It comes with a scatter symbol and has a maximum jackpot win of $500.
Dice Express is the first in a series of slots from Viaden Gaming. This is the version aimed at penny slots players and bargain hunters. Despite the thrifty wagers Dice Express still includes wild icons, scatter wins and two bonus rounds. It also offers a 10,000 coin jackpot, good for £/$/€500 when using the 0.05 stake!
Stripped back, traditional and simple would be the three adjectives most commonly used to describe the appearance of Dice Express. This will appeal to gamblers who prefer a slot to be, well, a slot. The designers have opted for a generic blue leaf background and classic five reel layout combined with 20 possible paylines. This is a fair few more than other Viaden slots which just goes to show they are a company which plans to cater for all tastes.
Reel icons offer an eclectic mixture of the traditional and modern. They include V logos, cherries, grapes, dice, desert islands, cocktails, pineapples, plums, melons, lemons, yachts and spin icons. They remain static when a win is paid, instead combinations are marked with a flashing graphic marking the payline on which the win occurred.
The variety of icons is matched by the variety of bets. The maximum coin value is 0.05 with minimum bets of just 1 penny when playing a single line. If you crank it up to 20 paylines you could be betting £/$/€1 per spin. This is far more than other Viaden slots, but far less than competitors which is impressive when considering the prizes available.
Two or more scatter symbols awards an instant win based on your line bet. Two of these icons pays 5x, three pays x8, four pays x20 and five pays x1000.
Five Dice symbols on an active payline unlocks the bonus game. This presents a monopoly style board game where you roll the dice seven times. Each roll awards a multiplier of your line stake ranging from 15x to 200x with your total winnings added to your credits at the end of the round. Some of the games segments transports you back, up or holds your turn which means not every roll is certain to produce a winner.
Dice Express includes a second bonus game entitled Wheel of Fortune. This round is triggered with five Spin! Symbols.
We have to admit we were pleasantly surprised by the bonus games which offer so much more than standard gameplay. When combined with the low stakes, high prizes and ease of use we feel Dice Express can hold its own in the ever busy online slot marketplace.
