If you were expecting a plumber, you will be disappointed. Instead, it turns out Plumbo is the name of a Norwegian folk rock band! Betsoft have chosen this unlikely source as inspiration for a slot game of the same name.
The question is whether you have to be a fan of the band to really appreciate this slot, or whether it has enough to keep any player interested. We’ve had a look and played the game so we know what it has to offer… and what might be missing from the game as well.
When you play Plumbo, you have 25 lines to choose from. You also have five reels.
The coin value can be changed from 0.02 to 5.00 depending on how high you want to go.
The various band members are represented by symbols, while the instruments they play can also be seen as you spin the reels.
Meanwhile, you will find a wild symbol in action, and this can double any win that is created by having one or more wilds in place. This can substitute everything but the scatter. This features the Plumbo name. Two of these will win you 50 credits, but if you get three or more you will win between eight and 20 free spins. Every prize you would get during a free spin will be doubled as well.
Unfortunately, no – the only bonus you will get in this game is the free spins round if you are fortunate enough to trigger it in the first place.
This game is all about the band, and since there are very few additional perks to look forward to, it doesn’t really achieve anything amazing. No doubt fans of the band will enjoy the game, but even then, it is really only going to get your attention for a short time.
Make no mistake – it has been solidly-built by Betsoft, and it is smooth to play as well. However, this doesn’t replace the need for some bonus features, or at least something a bit different from the norm. At least the game does cater for low-bet players as well as those with deeper pockets. It’s good to play for a short while but we doubt you would want to spend ages with this one.
