Slots Review: Quackers, Extra Money and Rodney Dangerfield's Reel Respect

24 January 2005

1) Quackers: WMS.

3-4 spins. 84-95%

Let's go duck hunting, the harmless way. This version of the hunt shoots plungers to snag the ducks up above and has both free spin and a second screen duck hunt. Once three or more Flier Ducks, dressed as a World War 2 pilots, are scattered on the screen, the player must choose one of them to receive free spins that can be paired with a multiplier. The Flier Duck flies to one of the reels to lock all positions on that reel as wild symbols then a respin and collect your rewards. While spinning, the duck will disappear and return over another reel to repeat the process until all free spins are gone. The main bonus round is triggered by three or more duck caller symbols on an active payline. Three carton hunters appear armed with plunger guns. Your choice of hunter will reveal the number of plungers to shoot the ducks above. When a hit is made, the duck reveals a bonus credit. Sometimes, a gift box tied to a balloon will float above. If the plunger hits the gift box, there are added plungers or if Plunge- o- Matic appears, the extra plungers could be as many as 15 to add to your 'quiver'. Happy Hunting.

2) Extra Money: Bally.

6-7 spins. 96-97%

Three versions of this reel spinner are available and all must be played with max coins for max payouts. They are categorized as one 2- coin and one 3-coin single paylines, plus one 5-coin, five paylines. All paytables include bar and 7 combinations plus one extra symbol of Extra Money. This is where it gets interesting as three of these begin a random mystery jackpot ranging from 10 coins up to 5000 coins for the five-line version. One of the unique features of the five-line version is that the hit frequency does not increase over the single payline versions. Although the hit frequency is higher for the single line versions, the larger 7 combinations pay much higher for the five- liner. Therefore, all three should be on your list as the bonus symbol pays out approximately every 64 spins and who couldn't use some Extra Money?

3) Rodney Dangerfield's Reel Respect: IGT.

2 spins. 88-89%

One of the most beloved comedians can be remembered and heard with this fun progressive slot. There are two bonus events. Three or more No Respect symbols on a payline begins a 15 free spin run and any time during this period that you do not win, the multiplier value increases towards the total reward. You can actually Win while Losing here. When three or more Rodney's Mug symbols appear of his adorable face, the second screen round begins where you choose which Mug is yours for credits and receive his famous one-liners. This one' s worth the laughs and 'mugging'.

Gayle Mitchell, one of the first women to break through the “felt ceiling” of the previously male-dominated world of casino gambling gurus, is now regarded as one of North America’s leading experts on casino gambling.

Gayle’s commitment to educating the gambling public began almost 20 years ago, when she walked into a Las Vegas casino and experienced for the first time the thrill that comes with winning even a small bet. She made up her mind then and there to learn every game in the casino, and a short time later resolved to make a career out of sharing her insights with other gamblers. She had always considered herself to be a good teacher – she believes in keeping things simple – and decided that she would commit herself to showing newbies how to become knowledgeable, intelligent gamblers.

Gayle started her own publishing company, and her first book came out in 1997. Today she is the author of seven books, seven EBooks, and a set of five Tips booklets, and has presented many seminars on casino gambling. Currently she teaches Learn to Win Programs with other leading experts at GamblingTeachers.com. The site is a player-friendly Free Gambling Learning Center offering 300+ online lessons for popular casino games plus Gambling Teachers Blog. Gayle also operates www.gamerisms.com, which is a games glossary site for sport, casino, skill and video game players.

“It’s a fact that less than 2 percent of casino players know the profitable, correct strategies and/or rules for most casino games,” Gayle says. “Our group of career teachers and writers are working to improve that statistic.”
