Foxin’ Wins Slot Review
Foxin’ Wins is one of NextGen Gaming’s most enduringly popular slots, so much so that it has produced some sequels, including Foxin’ Wins Again and Foxin’ Twins (featuring two sets of reels). The game is bright, bold and lively and stars a host of cheeky fox characters who have an endearing personality and steal the show.
Several different gameplay features help the game to stand out. These include NextGen Gaming’s trademark SuperBet feature, where you can increase the number of coins you are playing to add additional wilds to the reels, as well as a free spin bonus round where all wins are doubled. There are also two other randomly awarded bonuses that you can pick up during base play.
How to play
Foxin’ Wins is a 5 reel 3-row video slot with 25 paylines automatically in play on each spin. Wins pay left to right (except for scatter wins, which pay anywhere on the reels) and are multiples of the line bet (scatter wins are multiplied by the total bet). Coins range in size from £0.01 to £25, and so the bets range from a minimum of £0.25 up to a maximum wager of £625 per spin.
- Fox Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols, except the scatter
- Hitting 5x Fox Wild symbols = 2,000x line bet (up to £50,000)
- Pot of Gold symbol is the scatter
- Hitting 5x scatter symbols = 100x total bet (up to £62,500)
- Hitting 5x sports car symbols = 1,000x line bet (up to £25,000)
- Hitting 5x mansion symbols = 500x line bet (up to £12,500)
- Hitting 5x fountain symbols = 250x line bet (up to £6,250)
- Hitting 5x bankroll symbols = 250x line bet (up to £6,250)
The maximum jackpot win on offer in Foxin’ Wins is £125,000 for hitting 5x scatter symbols during the free spin bonus round when the 2x multiplier is in play and when betting the maximum coin size.
The biggest payout during base play is £62,500, again for hitting 5x scatter symbols when betting the max.
With no SuperBet in play, Foxin’ Wins has a 95.223% RTP. The RTP is 95.33% when SuperBet 1 is in play and 95.618% when playing SuperBet 2.
With the SuperBet feature, you can increase the number of coins you are betting which adds Fox Pup symbols to the reels. Fox Pups can randomly increase the number of wild symbols in play on any spin. SuperBet can be turned off or on before each spin, giving you control of when the feature is in play.
- SuperBet off = 25 coins in play and Fox Pup on reel 3
- SuperBet 1 = 35 coins in play and Fox Pups on reels 2, 3 and 4
- SuperBet 2 = 50 coins in play and Fox Pups on reels 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
Free Spins Bonus Round
The Free Spins Bonus Round is triggered by hitting 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. 10 free spins are awarded and during the bonus round more Fox Pup symbols are in play and all wins are multiplied 2x. Additional free spins can also be won during the bonus round.
Leprechaun Shake Down
This is a randomly triggered special feature where a leprechaun appears, which the fox chases across the reels and catches. He literally shakes the leprechaun upside down and cash falls out of his pockets, which is then awarded as a bonus win (up to a maximum of 1,250 coins).
Foxy Funds Feature
The Foxy Funds Feature is triggered randomly after any winning spin and adds a bonus win on top of your existing win (up to a maximum of 250 coins multiplied by the line bet).
Graphics and Sounds
This is a game that is full of personality and character. Set in a beautiful country mansion in which the Fox is the Lord of the Manor, the game’s symbols are all connected to the trappings of wealth and luxury and include a pot of gold, a fountain, a sports car and a wad of cash. The Fox dominates the game with his cheeky grin and antics, and this is all backed up by a jaunty soundtrack and sound effects that are perfectly suited to the game’s personality (the birds chirping in the background between spins is a particularly nice touch).
Overall, Foxin’ Wins is the complete package in the way the visuals, music and gameplay all come together to create a unified whole.
It’s not hard to see why Foxin’ Wins has long been one of NextGen gaming’s most successful releases, and why it has spawned so many sequels and different versions of the game. This is largely down to the personality of the Fox, who is an engaging figure whose character permeates every aspect of the game.
Many gameplay features add to the enjoyment, such as the Free Spins Bonus Round, Leprechaun Shake Down and Foxy Funds Feature, which all ensure there is plenty of variety and lots going on on the screen. Foxin’ Wins also offers several very lucrative payouts, and the range of coin sizes means the game is accessible by all and can be played for as little as £0.25 or as much as £625 per spin.
We are sure that if you give it a try, you’ll enjoy Foxin’ Wins as much as we do, so we would definitely recommend that you check it out at one of our featured online casinos.
