Sonic Links Online Pokies
Online and mobile casino players in New Zealand that miss classic pokies, but still want 5 reels and modern features, will be delighted to know that the latest pokies game, Sonic Links, is a combination of both.
With fruit symbols and exciting in-game bonus features, Sonic Links takes classic and turns it into modern play, and it’s part of the latest selection of online casino games available to play at JackpotCity Online Casino NZ.
A Classic Experience
Available to play as a mobile casino game in New Zealand, but also adaptable for smaller screens on mobile, Sonic Links offers players a classic online pokies experience, but with a difference, compared to Diamond Sands.
While you can look forward to nostalgic symbols and gameplay, the features such as Free Spins and Link&Win™, as well as the possibility of winning a Big, Major or Mega prize, are more enough to keep you entertained, with an excellent soundtrack that fits perfectly with the game, just like Bison Moon!
Paylines And Bet Sizes
Sonic Links is a 5-reel, 25-payline online pokies game with bet sizes that range from a minimum of 0.20 to a max bet of 50 credits per spin. Depending on whether you are playing at the mobile casino, or online via PC in NZ, the game settings (such as the spin button, current balance and most recent win) can all be found at the bottom or on the right of the game screen. There is also a menu button that can be used to view an explanation of the bonus features as well as the paytable and symbols.
Symbols And Bonus Features
Colourful symbols can be found on the reels when playing Sonic Links, which are all reminiscent of classic pokies: cherries, grapes, plums and lemons are included in the fruit symbols, while the rest are made up of a gold bar, a seven, a diamond and a star. The W, which happens to be the highest paying symbol, is also Wild and can therefore take the place of other symbols to complete possible winning combinations. Two symbols that play a big role in the bonus features are the Free Spins and coin symbols.
The Sonic Free Spins feature is triggered when 3 Free Spins symbols land on reels 1, 3 and 5 during regular play. But don’t expect an ordinary round of spins like other online casino games. Before you play this round, there will be two wheels that you need to spin: a Spins wheel and a Multiplier wheel. The Spins wheel will award the number of Free Spins for the feature, while the Multiplier wheel will award the Multiplier (for example x2) attached to each win.
The coin symbols come into play when between 3 and 5 land during regular play to trigger the Link&Win™ feature, which is played over 15 independent reels. During this feature, a cash value or a prize will be attached to each coin symbol. The cash value is self-explanatory as this value will be added to the total winnings, while the prizes could include a Big, Major or Mega prize.
The Big and Major prize is equal to 25x and 80x the current bet, respectively, while the Mega prize will award winnings of 300x the current bet. There is something extra though… should all 15 reels be filled with coin symbols, the Sonic prize of 5 000x the current bet will be awarded, and this is over and above the collected win amount during the feature.
The Software Providers
The main software provider behind the online casino games at JackpotCity is Microgaming (established in 1994), however, Sonic Links was created by Just For The Win, a company that was founded in 2006.
In recent years, Microgaming has formed a partnership with independent studios to create exclusive content for them, and Just For The Win is one of these providers. Sonic Links is one of these games that were created for Microgaming. And even better is that these games are not just available to play on PC, but also accessible at the mobile casino version of JackpotCity in NZ.
