The popular NextGen Gaming online video slot Foxin’ Wins focused on jet-setting Mr Fox and his sexy vixen, Mrs Fox, in their stunningly appointed mansion.
So it makes perfect sense that the sequel, the Foxin’ Wins Again slot, takes the super-wealthy Fox family off on a sailing holiday somewhere exotic.
It could be a Caribbean island, or perhaps the French Riviera, but wherever it is, the spit of land visible on the horizon isn’t the focus of the Foxin’ Wins Again slot. Five invisible reels hang in a perspex frame on the entertainment deck of a luxury yacht, sumptuous banquettes curved around a view of sun-drenched sea and bright blue skies.
Within this flawless image of wealth and relaxation, there are 50 fixed paylines, and coin denominations can be adjusted in nine stages between 0.01 and 2.00 per line, per spin.
Fox Cubs and SuperBet Increase Wilds
The Foxin’ Wins Again slot presents a new addition to the Fox family – Mr and Mrs Fox’s five mischievous cubs. The title also offers NextGen’s SuperBet feature, which can be set with the lever to the right of the reels.
For the base bet of 50 coins covering all 50 paylines, whatever the coin denomination, a cub can be found permanently under Reel 3. For another 25 coins per spin, the player can engage the first SuperBet level, which adds cubs at the base of Reels 2 and 4. An extra bet of 50 coins per spin, or 100 coins per spin in total, engages level two of the SuperBet, with cubs under all five reels.
These cubs can jump up at random during any spin, attaching a new Wild to their reel, thus making a winning combo more likely. During the free spins bonus rounds, the cubs become more excitable, attaching extra Wilds more often.
The enhanced prizes they make possible would suggest that doublng the bet per spin to fully engage the SuperBet is the most useful way to play the Foxin’ Wins Again slot.
Bell Scatter and 10 More Payline Symbols
A bright ship’s bell is the Foxin’ Wins Again slot’s Scatter, and three or more are needed to launch a bonus round of 10 free spins. All prizes are multiplied X2 in this round, and if the player isn’t happy with the prize total at the end of the round, they can use the 2nd Chance feature, forfeit the first win and try the 10 free spins again from scratch.
There are 10 other payline symbols in the Foxin’ Wins Again slot: six poker icons, a ship’s compass, a fruit-laden cocktail, a view of the yacht Foxy Lady, and Mrs Fox herself, sunbathing in a bikini on deck. The yacht and the vixen win prizes for two matches or better, and for five matches, Mrs Fox wins 1,000 coins.
Mr Fox Wild Wins Top Payline Prize
The Wild is obviously one of the Foxin’ Wins Again slot’s more important features, particularly as it can arrive stacked over two or more windows on a reel. It can combine with any matching symbols, the Scatter excepted, to build winning combos.
So its ability to stack, along with the cubs adding random extra Wilds to the reels, can make it a lucrative enhancer of payline wins.
Mr Fox has another trick up his sleeve, too. For combos of two or more Wilds running right-to-left from reel 1 on the same payline, the Foxin’ Wins Again slot pays prizes of 10, 200, 500 or 2,000 coins.
