Slot Setup

At first glance, Sidewinder looks like any other retro slot, but as you start spinning you’ll notice the horizontal sidewinder reels on the top and bottom of the regular 5x3 reels. The sidewinder reels allow the ways to win to change from 243 to 1125 ways as you play and when active alter the reels into a 3, 5, 5, 5, 3 format. Sidewinder reels contain only Free Spins and Wild symbols, which give this online slot an unbeatable air of excitement.

The graphics style of Sidewinder Slot is a blast from the past, using retro lucky symbols such as Four Leafed Clovers, Liberty Bells, Horseshoes, Lucky 7s and block design and colouring. Players will want to keep an eye out for the Triple 7 symbols as they award the most at 8x your total stake for a 5 symbol winning betline. Symbols pay between 8x for the highest and 0.4x for the lowest paying 3-5 symbol combination, so there are some great prizes on offer!

How to Use the Sidewinder Reels

The sidewinder reels are a little unusual and spin horizontally, whereas the regular reels are vertical and spin vertically. If you haven’t played with Sidewinder reels before they are essentially a new, base game bonus function, but they need to be triggered.

*Trigger the top Sidewinder reel by getting a Top Wild on reel 2. *Trigger the bottom Sidewinder reel by getting a Bottom Wild on reel 4. *When a Wild lands correctly triggering either of the Sidewinder reels they will spin whilst all vertical reels are frozen to create additional wins.

With one Sidewinder reel active there are 576 ways to win, with both active, a monumental 1125 ways to win (you won’t find many online slots with this many ways to win). What's more, when triggered by Wilds the Sidewinder reels will exclusively contain Wilds assuring bigger and better wins for players.

The Sidewinder symbol is used to trigger Free Spins and you only need to collect 3-4 (for 6-10 spins), however, Sidewinder symbols only appear on reels 2 and 4. It’s not as tricky as it sounds to hit Free Spins because the Sidewinder symbol also triggers the Sidewinder reels. Meaning they will stick and spin and in this case, the Sidewinder reels will be filled with Free Spin symbols helping you collect more! During the spins, both Sidewinder reels are active equalling 1125 ways to win and for every Sidewinder symbol on the reels, an additional spin is granted! But that’s not all….there is more, during Free Spins if Wilds stop in the same position on both Sidewinder reels they will expand and cover the vertical reel acting to substitute for other symbols.
