About The Equalizer

The Equalizer is something of a retro-looking release from Red Tiger Gaming, and a casino slot which made its debut in spring 2019. Groovy 80s style graphics are one of the perks of this neon-inspired slot, which also features many playing card suit symbols, flashy (if dated) motors, and a mild music-based theme. As is frequently the case with video slots which have been produced by Red Tiger, the wagering menu here is a doddle to use and has been primed for mobile gamers, with big, finger and thumb-friendly buttons galore.

This is a video slot which can dish out prizes which are worth up to 10,000 times a player’s total stake. The Equalizer’s RTP rate is set to 96.08%, and the game commands wagers which range from a floor of 20p up to a ceiling bet of just £10 a game. Initially, this 5-reel video slot contains only 15 paylines for players to deal with. However, there are times in the slot when the number of rows appearing on each reel will expand, providing more opportunities to land wins later down the line.

Special features

The “W” symbol is naturally a wild symbol in this game, though it can also double up the best-paying of all the icons to appear in The Equalizer. On top of that, wild symbols can expand up and down the reels. When doing so, they will spell out the word “wild” as well as contribute to decent wins.

It isn’t just the wild symbols which can expand in The Equalizer. It is also possible the reels themselves to expand. When doing so, as many as 7 reels and 6 rows of symbols could be created, which will boost the odds of winning for at least a short while.

Free spins symbols exist in this slot, too (they are the only symbols which wilds cannot substitute for) and they can trigger a free spin round. Three or more is enough to activate the slot’s only special bonus round.

Bonus features

The Equalizer’s free spin bonus is played with both expanding wilds and expanding reels features activated. When playing with the expanding reels feature, as many as 60 paylines now become available for players to win on. On top of that, the speakers which appear beside the reels also have a part to play. These can “bounce” expanding wilds across the reels, either left to right or right to left, whenever they switch on. This essentially gives players access to walking, expanding wilds during the feature.

Overview

There are bound to be players who find The Equalizer a touch on the dull side, at least in terms of its theme. However, few players will deny that the bonus rounds and special features in this Red Tiger Gaming developed slot don’t have what it takes to get a rise out of players. A game which has plenty to offer (even if it costs a bit more than you might think), The Equalizer has the potential to be a decent hit for this software provider.
