About Frequent Flyer
Relax Gaming are the name behind some of our favourite releases of 2020 to date, including the brilliant Hellcatraz and TNT Tumble. They also had a hand in Fantasma Games’ excellent Heroe’s Hunt which was released on Relax’s Silver Bullet platform and features some top gamification – worth a spin if you haven’t tried it yet.
The hallmarks of Relax’s slots are quality visuals and engaging gameplay. Frequent Flyer is no exception, an adventurous new slot with a travel theme, featuring famous landmark symbols and a backdrop of a retro airport waiting room. You’ll see views of the planes setting off for far-way destinations and passengers standing around, while a jazz soundtrack plays in the background. This is a return to the golden age of glamorous, old-school flying.
The 6 reels and 40 paylines are set against a backdrop of departures and arrivals boards to the left of the reels. These boards come into play during the bonus Free Spins rounds. The retro feel is enhanced by a sepia-coloured wash covering the screen.
Frequent Flyer has a standard RTP of 96.14% and a high volatility rating – this means it is high risk gambling, so bear this in mind if you decide to play. The minimum bet is $0.10 for each spin, so it’s a comfortable play for those with lower budgets too.
Symbols and Paytable
The symbols in Frequent Flyer include colourful card suits and famous international landmarks. You’ll find the Eiffel Tower, Sphinx, Statue of Liberty and a Temple spinning here. The card suits can pay 2x your bet, while the landmark symbols are the higher payers and can award from 5x to 20x your bet for 6 matches on the reels.
The Wild logo symbol can substitute for all the other symbols in the game and can also award 30x your bet if you hit 6 matches. This means the max payout in the game is 5,000x your bet. You’ll also find split flap symbols, which can activate the Free Spins rounds, where the game uses the Departures and Arrivals boards and takes you on some exotic travels!
Gameplay and Features
The Wild symbols substitutes for all the other symbols to create more potential winning combinations. It’s also the highest-paying symbol in the game. Wilds can also appear as Shuffling Wilds during the Free Spins features, which means they stay on the reels and move one across each spin.
Jetsetter Free Spins
You will activate the Jetsetter Free Spins when you find 5 split flap symbols and reveal a destination from the information boards to the left of the reels. This gives you 3 Free Spins along with a Multiplier if the destination is listed on the Departures board or Shuffling Wilds if the destination is listed on Arrivals. You will get a passport stamp for each destination reached and when you’ve collected all these stamps, the Frequent Flyer Free Spins round begins.
Frequent Flyer Free Spins
When you trigger the Frequent Flyer Free Spins, you’ll get a listed combination of Free Spins, Multipliers and Wilds. It’s also possible to gamble to receive a random combination. This allows you to get up to 20 Free Spins, up to 6x Multipliers and up to 10 Shuffling Wilds.
Final Call Feature
The Final Call feature is triggered randomly at the start of any spin. When this happens, 2 split flap symbols will appear on the reels to increase your chances of hitting the Free Spins round.
Frequent Flyer is a great-looking slot harking back to another era with a nod to Art Deco design. The retro travel theme feels quite romantic and will appeal to players who like to visit new places and anyone planning a holiday! As this is a high volatility slot, it’s most suited to travellers keen to reach the big payouts and who don’t mind the higher risk involved. The highlights of the game are clearly the 2 Free Spins rounds, as you’ll get lots of extra chances to rack up the rewards with the Wilds and Multipliers. The fast pace of the Jetsetter round and the potential prizes available make the gameplay exciting, however we would have loved to see more images in the bonus round making the visuals relevant to the destinations visited.
