Down the Pub Slots
Down the Pub takes players to the familiar atmosphere of the Irish pub with reels filled with traditional pub grub and pints of beer, along with clover leaf and a ginger-bearded drinking buddy.
The background to the game is a traditional pub scene complete with wooden bar, television screen, a drinker on a stool nursing a pint of frothy beer, and even a slot machine in the corner.
There are 15 fixed paylines in this slot, along with free spins round, multipliers and bonus game. Enjoy the pub life as you play this fun slot machine from Playson – and look out for the amusing animations!
Just a Pint
Before ordering your drink at the bar you need to choose your line bet, which is alterable at the bottom of the screen using the left and right arrows. You can bet from €0.02 to €5.00 on each line, giving a total bet per spin of €0.30 and a max bet of €75.00. All the paylines are fixed, which means you have the maximum number of ways to win on every spin. There is a ‘bet max’ button at the bottom of the screen, which you can select to easily bet the maximum amount per spin.
The autoplay option also lets you play up to 999 spins automatically – just click to begin and you can click again to stop whenever you like.
The cheery pub theme of the slot transports players to the Irish pub with the ginger guy sat on a stool with his pint to the left of the reels. Now and then he takes a swig from his glass and when you hit a win he sometimes cheers to add to the atmosphere. His constant small movements make it feel as though he is really watching your gameplay!
There are not many symbols in this game with the reels filled with beer kegs, pints of beer, glasses of brandy, trays of nuts, a posh sandwich, a clover leaf and ‘Welcome Best Pub’ sign featuring our drinking buddy in the central logo. There are also some letter symbols which spell out the word BONUS. The music of casual piano-playing in the background creates a feeling of tipsy contentment to add to the relaxed scene.
Top Rewards from the Beer Keg
The payouts in Down the Pub are reasonable with the beer keg awarding the highest payout of 1,000x your bet for 5 symbols at once on the reels. The sandwich and beer glass are the second best symbols to look out for paying 750x your bet for 5 symbols. Next up is the try of nuts and brandy glass with 500x your bet available for 5 symbols together.
The BONUS letters pay the lowest rewards with the B and the O letters paying up to 250x your bet and the N, U and S letters paying 100x your bet for 5 symbols.
The Welcome Best Pub sign is the scatter symbol and awards 100x your total bet for hitting 5 symbols together, while the wild symbol is the clover leaf, which stands in for all the other symbols, except the scatter and the pint icon, to create more potential winning combinations.
Welcome to the Best Pub
The Welcome Best Pub sign is the scatter and if you spin at least 3 of these game logo symbols you launch the free spins round. The round will continue until 3 pint symbols appear to signal the end of the round.
The pint symbol on the middle reel acts as wild for the duration of the free spins round and it also awards multipliers! If you hit 1 pint symbol you trigger a 2x multiplier on all payouts, while 2 pints awards a 3x multiplier and 3 pints gives a 10x multiplier for 1 more free spin until the round ends.
Bonus Game from a Classic Pub Fruit Machine
There is a fun bonus round in Down the Pub, which lets players play a traditional pub fruit machine for the chance to win cash prizes. This fruit machine is in the background throughout the game so when the Bonus round finally appears it is fun to be transported into the corner of the pub to try your luck!
To trigger the bonus game you have to hit the letters BONUS spelled out in order across the reels from 1st to 5th reel. You spin to move across the board, collecting payouts but you only have 3 lives – each bomb you land on takes away a life. There are lots of fun options during the bonus game with interesting names, including nudge, shifta, boost, multipliers, jackpot wheel and many more, so there is always something new to try if you are lucky enough to trigger the bonus a few times during your gaming session.
The bonus paytable includes a triple 7, which is the wild symbol, along with plums, oranges and lemons.
Loads of Fun in the Pub with Your Ginger Drinking Pal
Down the Pub is filled with great features, so this is a game most players will thoroughly enjoy. The pub piano music and sloppy drums in the background gives a carefree vibe and creates a great atmosphere, while the funny drinking buddy on the stool with all his animations is a wonderful touch.
The bonus game within the game is entertainingly complex and gives the chance to boost your balance, while we experienced plenty of regular smaller wins in the main game to keep things ticking over nicely.
There is a lot going on down the pub and the game has some great graphics, so it is easy to stay here drinking for hours – but as the message at the bottom of the screen warns you: ‘Try to keep sober during the game!’
