Outback Downunder is a slot machine inspired by the Australian countryside. The highest paying symbol is the classic blond outback dude with a big hat, wearing animal teeth as jewelry. Other examples of creatures that can show up on the reels are the crocodile, the dingo, the kangaroo, and the frilled-necked lizard.
The graphics and animations are pretty basic.
Outback Downunder is available for both desktop and mobile casinos.
So, what IS the outback? The term outback is used for the vast and sparsely populated Australian interior. The outback is more remote than the areas referred to simply as the bush. The outback extends from northern to southern Australia and includes several climate zones. The most iconic part is probably the arid “red center”.
Outback Downunder was created by the game developer Novomatic.
Instead of traditional pay lines, you can win in 243 different ways when you play Outback Downunder.
Autoplay is available.
The wild symbol consists of a map of Australia and the word WILD. It can substitute for any of the regular symbols, but not for the scatter or the kangaroo. The wild symbol only appears on reels #2, #3 and #4.
The fire opal is a scatter symbol, and you need at least three opals – anywhere on the reels – to be awarded 15 free spins.
During free spins, the wild symbol also works as a win multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x.
On the Road bonus feature
The road sign warning of kangaroos is your key to the bonus game at Outback Downunder. If you get it on both the first and second reel, these two reels will stick together and the other three reels get locked down. Each of these three reels can then do a re-spin, depending on if the previous reel has a multiplier.
Example: The third reel re-spins, and a 2x or 3x multiplier appears. This means that the fourth reel gets unlocked and will do a re-spin. If a 3x or 5x multiplier shows up on the fourth reel, the fifth reel gets unlocked and will do a re-spin. If the 10x or 15x multiplier appears, it will multiply the current bet value by the amount shown.
When you win something, you can elect to risk your win in a game of double-or-nothing. Your job is to correctly guess if the next card in the deck will be red or black. If you’re right, the money is doubled. If you are wrong, you lose the money.
