Black and White

Black and White

There are several UK online slots games out there with the title Black and White. This release has been developed by Leander Games, though. One of the most distinguishing features of this release is that it is played with a near-total black and white layout. However, once the free spin bonus round is activated, the game’s reels burst into life and become coloured. As for the theme of this slot, there is a loose chess theme going on here, cleverly worked together with medieval undertones. 

Black and White is played over 25 paylines, spread over 5 reels. Those paylines can expand to 50 in total during the game’s free spin round. The slot has a theoretical RTP rate of 96.08%, based on 73.31% in the base game, and 22.77% in the free spin bonus. Unsurprisingly, the king is the most profitable of all the symbols to appear in the game. He can dole out wins worth up to 20x a line bet when 5 such symbols appear in a winning combination. As for stakes, these stem from a floor of 25p up to a ceiling of £100 a game in the Black and White slot. 

Special Features 

All the classic special symbols you would expect to find in a video slot pop up in Leander’s slot. A wild symbol appears as a castle, it can substitute for all other icons in the game, except for scatters and other special emblems.  

At any point in the base game, a randomly triggered bonus can see between 3 and 8 random wilds dished onto the reels. Also including in the base game is a streak feature. Following any three of a win (with scatter symbols on the reels) a Hold ‘n Re-Spin bonus begins. Provided wins keep coming from held symbols; the feature keeps on giving. 

Scatters appear as fireworks (the only coloured symbols in the base game) and can trigger a free spin bonus when 5 or more appear. Landing just 3 such symbols trigger a re-spin bonus which is played in much the same way as the steak/Hold ‘n Re-Spin bonus mentioned a moment ago. 

Bonus Features 

There is more to this free spins round than a handful of free games; it is played in colour, for a start. Like in the base game, random wilds can appear on the reels of the free spin bonus. This time, though, between 3 and 12 of them can pop up. As well as that, special symbols can show up in this feature. Every fifth such symbol will add an extra free spin to your tally, as well as extend the reels. In this manner, it is possible to end up playing with 50 paylines in all. 

Overview 

Black and White undoubtedly has plenty to offer players. What seems like an ordinary, run-of-the-mill casino game suddenly becomes a lot more you start activating the randomly triggered, free spin, or re-spin bonus rounds. A nice and creative slot, Black and White is worth a look if you fancy playing something different.
