Local Pub Slot Review
I’ve never been one to trawl my local pub, largely because I find it too depressing. Pubs in the evening are bad enough, with all the loud, drunk, cigarette smoking people, but during the day the they’re really something else. Alcoholics, lecherous old men, and nasty waitstaff combined with dirty floors, and smoke stained everything? Not exactly my cup of tea.
Local Pub is a 5-reel, 9-payline video slot powered by software from Belatra Games. Symbols include a lobster (must be a high-end local pub), cigarettes, pints, sausages, bars, fish, and royal values from Jack to Ace. The Wild is represented by the slot’s logo, and the Scatter is a shot of “Russian Vodka.”
You’ll be able to operate these controls even if you’re so smashed you’re falling off your bar stall. Even so, let’s run through them. Below the reels you’ll find Menu, Credit Value, Lines +/-, Credits, Bet +/-, Total Bet, Wins, Max Bet, Start (Spin), and Autostart (Autoplay).
So, what features can you expect from Local Pub? Wild: The Wild substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter.
Landing 3 or more Scatters triggers 15 free spins. Landing an additional 3 Scatters during the feature will trigger 15 free spins (up to a max of 300 free spins). The two right reels play as Wild during this feature. There are also two features that allow you to increase your wins: Double Up and Red-or-Black Risk Game.
Red-or-Black Risk: The gamble feature is a simple way for you to multiply each rounds wins by either x2 or x4. All you have to do is guess whether the card will be red or black. Guess correctly and you win, but get it wrong and you’ll be sent back to the base game empty-handed. Double Up: Appears after each winning round, and allows you to either double your win or lost it. You’ll have to choose a card, out of four cards, and you’ll win should it be higher than the dealer’s. If not, best to get the booze out because you’ll be nursing some broken spirits.
Local Pub boasts solid (if not slightly dull) graphics, a pretty classic soundtrack, and is available to play on desktop, mobile, and tablet.
The max coin win is a very generous 50,000.
Overall, Local Pub is a lot of fun (even when you’re sober). It has great features, fun graphics, and payouts that’ll make you want to crack open that expensive champagne you’ve been saving. It really is a good time, and should guarantee some huge wins.
