Clockwork Oranges Pokie Review
Stanley Kubrick’s violent science fiction movie from the 1960s may seem to be a pretty strange choice for the theme of a pokie game, and sure enough the only connection here is the Clockwork Orange name.
In contrast to the movie this Empire Games title (part of the Novomatic group) is bright and cheerful, and the clockwork oranges of the title are no more than cartoon oranges with a clock for a face.
The other symbols in the game are card symbols from 9 to Ace, plus a Wild and a sack of gold coins. It is a standard five reel pokie offer 20 paylines and a minimum bet of two cents.
About The game
Coins Range:0.01 To 1.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:No/No
Wild Symbol: there is no mistaking the Wild symbol here, and apart from subbing in for any of the regular game symbols they can also
Scatter Symbols: the cheerful looking clockwork orange is the Scatter Symbol here, and when three of these appear on reels 1, 3, and 5 the Clockwork Oranges Feature is triggered.
Clockwork Oranges Feature: when this game is triggered by the Scatters, a large clock appears on screen to indicate how many hands will be used during the special feature.
If one hand is used then payouts are from 4 to 12 times the total bet; if there are 2 hands the payout will rise to between 12 and 250 times total bet; and 3 hands means you are looking at multipliers of between 30 and 500 times the total bet.
During the feature the clock hands will spin and point at various game symbols, and the more clock hands you have the more symbols you can collect.
When three of these symbols are matched – sort of like a game of bingo with fruit – then the associated prize is awarded, which is a multiple of the last amount you won.
If the hands point to the Scatter symbol 3 times during your bonus game then the Super Bonus round is triggered, which is where the mega-prizes can be won.
Super Feature: when you get 3 Scatters during the Clockwork Oranges Feature then the Super feature kicks into gear. Now the hands of the clock do not spin randomly but they move from one fruit symbol to the next in a clockwise direction, meaning that all of the fruits can be collected.
You might reasonably imagine that the sack full of money would offer the biggest payouts, but in fact when five of these show up you win x250 your bet, whereas 5 Wild symbols will give you 500 times your bet.
The bonus feature offers huge potential winnings of up to 10,000 times your stake if your luck is in and you unlock the Super bonus game.
This bright and breezy pokie is quite good fun. Nice colourful graphics and chirpy background music make the game play seem to zing along. The bonus round will be enjoyed by bingo lovers, not to mention anyone who likes to win big money playing pokies.
