The Smashing Biscuit from Microgaming

Punk for Profit with The Smashing Biscuit
Punk music will never die, especially if The Smashing Biscuit
have anything to do with things. That’s the name of the aspiring three-piece punk band which features in the latest slot game to be released from Microgaming
, and what the band members lack in star appeal (which is plenty) they more than make up for with unbridled enthusiasm.
Five Reels of Musical Anarchy
Developed for Microgaming by PearFiction Studios, The Smashing Biscuit is a five-reel slot
in which the three Biscuit brothers – Crunchy, Tiny and Soggy – strive to progress from practicing their music in the garage to taking the world by storm. The game itself mostly takes place in the garage, and symbols include electric guitars in the shape of the playing card ranks J, Q, K and A, the three band members, their weary looking father, Mr Biscuit, a Wild and a Free Spins scatter.
This game has a fantastic sense of humour
, and all of the symbols are drawn in an amusing cartoon style. However, the audio is just as impressive. Rather than having a soundtrack which plays throughout the game, as is usual in an online slot, in this title the music – which is punk-riff heavy – only plays as the wheels are spinning. That makes sense, because each spin of the reels can be viewed as the band practicing, but the comparative silence of suburbia which can be heard between spins, complete with birdsong, is a stroke of genius.
The base game features three random Dad events which can occur at any time. These can give you an instant win, trigger the Battle of the Bands bonus game or add multipliers to a special multiplier ladder
at the top of the screen which goes, in true Spinal Tap fashion, all the way up to x11.
Battle of the Bands Bonus Game
Whilst Dad can trigger the Battle of the Bands bonus game at any time
, you can trigger it yourself by getting three scatter symbols on the reels at the same time. During this bonus game, the five reels are replaced by a four-column grid with three rows, and you will be awarded a generous helping of free spins. If any of the brothers helps to complete a winning combination in this part of the game, they will be transformed into a wild for the remaining free spins.
‘We are delighted to add The Smashing Biscuit as the latest exclusive game to Microgaming,’ said Jagoda Barber, who is Head of Games at Microgaming. ‘Bringing plenty of exhilarating excitement from the very first spin, The Smashing Biscuit offers an abundance of intuitive features, entertaining sound effects and an engaging storyline, and is set to bring players on a rewarding journey.’
Play it Loud!
The Smashing Biscuit probably won’t amount to much as a punk band, but they definitely rock as the stars of this refreshingly feelgood slot game. Head over to Rizk Casino
to spend some time with the band in person, and play it loud!
