What comes to your mind when someone mentions France? Some think about Paris and La Tour Eiffel, others recall ‘La Marseillaise’ and ‘Vive la liberté’. But more likely what will come to your mind instantly is great food, awesome wine and expensive though smelly cheeses. Now the colors and tastes of this beautiful land are available in a slot. So some foodie gamblers would feel at home spinning the reels of a great ‘Red, White and Bleu’ slot by Rival Gaming.
The first thing that catches your eye at the slot is its simplicity and vivacity of bright simple colors. Slot’s design is a bit straightforward but what you expect it to be at a three-reel and one line slot! The main colors of the design are the aforementioned red, white and blue. We dare you to pronounce the last word the way the French do! It’s doable but practice time would be so much fun! The background is the flag of the Republic. On the right side of the screen, there is a bottle of red wine. To the left, there is a glass full of white wine with some grapes for a snack.
Below the reels are the control buttons to operate the slot. The spin button for the manual spinning. Next, there is an Autospin icon. Hit it if you are too lazy to spin the slot yourself, so the successive spinning will be initiated. Stop it when you want or wait for the session to be over. As there is only one line, you don’t need the ‘Choose line’ button. But you are free to regulate the number of coins wagered per line: from one to three, as well as their value. High rollers and medium stakes gamblers are going to love the betting range. The value of one coin varies from 0.01 to 10. So if you stake one coin worth 0.01, then your total wager will be 0.01. If you bet max, them you may stake as much as 30 per one spin. For those lazy ones, there is a bet max button, choose the coin value and hit it. The slot will stake the maximum three coins per line automatically. Right above the reels there is a Paytable icon for those confused with payouts and wining combinations.
At ‘Red, White and Bleu’, to win you need to land matching symbols on the reels. Pretty ordinary and simple. As there are only three reels, then basically all winning combinations consist of three matching icons. Let’s figure the paysymbols out. All the payouts given are the payouts for the three coins wager. The first paysymbol is well-known for the old-timers, who remember the times of one-armed bandits. It is the Bar icon, but in the national colors of the land of ‘Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité’. Three icons of Blue Bars are worth 45 x your coin value. A combination of three White Bars is worth 30. For Red Bars in a combination of three, your coin gets multiplied 15 times. There is a combination of any three bars, it’s paid 9x one coin.
The next symbol is yet another well-known retro — the Seven. It also comes in three theme-colors of the slot: red, blue and white. A trio of Red 7s is paid 300 times your coin value. Three White 7s are paid 75x one coin. And the Blue 7s are worth 60 times one coin value. If you hit a combo of different 7s in any order then it’s paid 15x the coin. But if in your mixed combination the first 7 is red, the second is white and the third is blue, then it’s paid 120 times the coin.
The next set of icons are some yummy French snacks. And they are paid more. Three slices of Cheese are worth 5,000 the coin value. Three icons with Red grapes are worth 600 times you coin. A combination of three White Grapes gets one stake coin multiplied 150 times. If you land any three of those icons on the reels regardless of the order, then the coin value gets multiplied 45 times. But if your mixed combination has the following order: the first symbol is the White Grapes, the second is the Red Grapes and the Cheese is the third, then your bet coin gets multiplied 180 times.
There are no Scatter symbols or Bonus Rounds in the slot. Everything is simple and straightforward. Here at Red, White and Blue, France is everywhere. It’s in the wine and snacks, it’s in the colors and the sound, it’s in the simplicity. The French have created a great and unique cuisine based on just a few ingredients and their simple combinations. Here the gameplay is just the same, it’s simple and plain, no elaborate schemes and strategies needed. Just stake, spin and win. But don’t forget, a bottle of great wine makes even a simple meal a treat! So will it be the red or the white? Hope every choice in our lives would be as simple as this one.
