Judge Dredd Online Slots
The Judge Dredd online slot game was developed by Nextgen Gaming and is based on the popular British comic book character of the same name. Judge Dredd appears in the science-fiction comic book series, 2000 AD, as a Street Judge in the futuristic fictional city, Mega-City One. This means that he is able to arrest criminals in the city and convict, sentence and execute them on the spot.
The online slots game of Judge Dredd has been designed with fans of this comic book character in mind. The background to the game shows a view of the industrialised Mega-City One and an animated version of Judge Dredd appears next to the reels. Many of the symbols used relate directly to Judge Dredd and the music played during the spinning of the reels adds to the ominous atmosphere.
Gameplay and Symbols Used in Judge Dredd
Judge Dredd features 5 reels and 25 paylines. The paylines are fixed but you can adjust the coin size on the screen from as little as 0.01 to 2 when placing your bet, which means that you can place as little as 0.25 per spin. Judge Dredd has a unique Superbet feature, which allows you to adjust your wager at the start of a spin in order to increase your chances of winning.
There are 3 different Superbet features. The first is Superbet Yellow. It costs you 25 credits and will add wilds to the centre reel only. Superbet Orange is 35 credits and using this feature will add wilds to reels, 2, 3 and 4. Superbet Red will cost you 50 extra credits but it will give you wilds on all 5 of the reels. There are regular playing card symbols of 9 to Ace as well as several symbols relating directly to Judge Dredd.
These include Dredd’s motorcycle, his Glove and of course his ‘Lawgiver’ Gun. There is also a Red Eye Baddie symbol. The Wild symbol is Judge Dredd himself. This symbol acts as a substitute for all the regular symbols so as to help complete winning combinations. The Scatter symbol is the Dredd Gold Badge and all wins including this symbol will be multiplied by the bet.
Bonus Features in Judge Dredd
There are 3 bonus features in Judge Dredd. The first is the ‘I am the Law’ bonus feature that randomly occurs after a winning spin. Judge Dredd will appear on the screen with his gun and shoot the reels before rewarding the player with an extra cash prize. The second bonus feature is the more exciting Free Spins feature that is triggered when 3 or more of the scatter symbols land on the reels. When this happens the player will be rewarded with 10 free spins. Any wins that occur during the free spins will be multiplied by 2.
The scatter symbols do appear during the free spins and if 3 or more land on the reels during a free spin then you will re-activate the free spins bonus feature and receive another 10 free spins. As an added bonus there is a noticeable increase in the number of Wild symbols, which appear during the free spins bonus. The third bonus feature is the Gamble bonus. After any win in the base game, the player will be able to choose to gamble their winnings by picking the colour and the suit of the next playing card in order to double their winnings (for the correct colour) or quadruple their winnings (for the correct suit).
