The Three Stooges: Brideless Groom Slots
The Three Stooges Brideless Groom is a slot machine by RealTime Gaming. RealTime Gaming is a longstanding software developer who has been apart from the industry since the 90s, while The Three Stooges is a classic TV show that's been a staple in American History for a long time. This game is played on five reels and 33 pay lines. All of your favorite characters are there - Larry, Shemp, and Moe. They're going to deliver some timeless comedy along with some epic rewards.
This game has group wilds, and of course, the grouped wild is the three stooges themselves! Shemp, Larry and Moe make up the grouped wild, which can substitute for all other symbols except for the scatters. These symbols pay from left to right, and if you land five of these symbols you'll receive 3,333 coins. Another special symbol is the scatter symbol! A pair of wedding rings of Shemp and Ms. Dinkelmeyer is the scatter and this symbol is multiplied by the total bet. The certificate of marriage symbol pays out 333 coins for a match of five, and so does the stacks of money symbol. The wedding cake pays out 133 coins for a match of five, and so does the briefcase. The champagne, flowers, and journal also pay out 133 coins for a match of five. Visually, this game is about as vintage as it can get. All symbols pay from the left to the right, except the scatter symbol, which seems to pay any way.
This game has a respin feature, which is triggered when the Stooges symbols (also known as wilds) cover at least the middle reel during normal play, or during the Lucky Stooge Spins, which I'll go into in more detail in a moment. 1 or three respins are awarded when you cover one or two reels. Only the Stooge Picks can be triggered from the re-spins and if you go from one covered reel to two on the re-spin, you'll receive three more respins. There is another special feature called Stooge Picks. The Stooge Pick feature is won when the Stooges symbols cover reels two, three and four. Remember, the stooges operate as the wild symbol. You'll need to pick from the stooges until you find two parts of the broken heart! The picks will add free spins, or increase the multiplier. They might add Whacky Wilds. The Whacky Wilds turn Shemp, Larry or Moe wild when they appear on the second, third and fourth reel. During these special rounds, the re-spin mode is not active
When you're playing, it's possible a random Lucky Stooge feature might trigger out of nowhere. This feature will award you an abundance of free spins! You might receive nine free spins, or you might receive thirty-three free spins. Either way, all prizes awarded include a wild symbol that is tripled! Plus, the Stooge Re-Spins or Stooge Picks can be activated during the Lucky Stooge free spins.
Whether you're a fan of The Three Stooges or not, this is a fun tribute to both romance and classic comedy in one rewarding package. The special features kept the game interesting, and really I love any game with a re-spin feature, but I was especially pleased to find these re-spins and multipliers within this game. The sheer amount of free spins you could win alone is enough to heat my blood up, personally. The game was visually a relic of another time, too. I loved how much this game paid tribute to the past while also keeping the game modern enough almost anyone could enjoy it.
