Bridesmaids by Quickfire powered by Microgaming

Bridesmaids by Quickfire powered by MicrogamingDedicated to the comedy with the same name ‘Bridesmaids’ (2011- Universal Pictures), Microgaming Company released in 2015 the typical female Bridesmaids slot machine. Perhaps to level the balance with the rest of the slots with predominantly masculine themes in an attempt to reduce the gender inequality, as it is proven that so many of today’s players are women. 

The movie, which the game was based on, depicted a bumpy yet triumphant maiden voyage down the road to matrimony. The wild comedy/drama’s climax was the ‘perfect’ D-day for the bride, surrounded by her ‘perfect’ friends/bridesmaids. According to some critics, the movie was hilarious, mature, touching, and easy to appreciate, featuring a talented, beautiful, witty, and gelastic acting crew. However, others defined it as poor entertainment, undeserving of the piled-up universal acclamations.

We would like to stay neutral about the movie ranking, just will mention the accolades - over 70 nominations and 25 wins, the enrichment - box office-wise - the film production brought nearly 10 times bigger cumulative worldwide gross than its budget. Stopping here with the parallels between film reviews and categorizations, we would gladly invite you to check the game instead, starting with free play via the DEMO mode link on our page.

The technical elements of the game are as follows: a 5x3 grid, 40 pay lines, average volatility, generous RTP of 96.71%, and a maximum win of 105 000 coins in a single spin. In addition, the game is packed with original features, multipliers, and boosters. 

Personal testers’ opinion

After extensively long sessions and a myriad of spins, we reckon that Bridesmaids is an outstandingly performing slot when played with medium and medium+ bets (10 CAD to 20 CAD). It often shows a perfect dynamic even when playing at 60 CAD. Surely it would be best to define your limits first: how much to spend, what to bet when to pull out, all depending on your situation. But we must highlight that if you want to leave this slot like a victor, you need to stop once you received big winning (70x total bets and more) or drastically reduce your bet size. From the total percentage of RTP, over 51% is reserved for payouts during the bonuses. Moreover, the bonus rounds are triggered statistically, every 62nd spin, which is a good tally for this Microgaming’s slot with average dispersion. The probability of getting any hit (winning) is also more than fair - 36.31%. The slot machine preserves the balance nicely (if played with small bets) and scored 5.81 (out of 10) points at our wagering meter, i.e., in the middle line, but you can try to fulfill the wagering requirements.

Review and recommendations by the testing team

  • We realize that is a matter of taste, but we love this slot, partly because we loved the movie and partly because of the abundance of options. You need to put in a lot of playing time if you want to see/experience each function. It is refreshing and energizing regarding the theme, graphics, and design, including the original film’s elements and staying true to the whole bridal ceremony’s insanity.
  • Even though the game could never equal the original film production popularity, we can state that it is one well-received game at many casino lobbies. So, if you decide to play with real money, you should select a big and famous casino where the prize pool is already sufficient (due to the huge number of players keeping on filling it continuously).
  • During our tests in the base game, we were pleased with frequent winnings, and our budget remained stable for a long time. The great moments in the gameplay were provided via double symbols and the stacked Wilds. With their help, we often secured a nice piece of the wedding cake. The average winnings we received were in the range of 2x -6x total bets, with some more successful combinations (5OAK with double symbols and Wilds), which were around 12x -18x the bet. Our absolute maximum (via base spins) was a win of 60x the bet with 3 reels full of stacked Wilds.
  • During the bonuses (they are so many, you will never get bored), which are activated frequently, we had different experiences with assort of the 4 excellent options. We found out that the maximum potential is realized with a triple arrow on the bonus wheel. The average payouts we collected from the bonuses were around 30x-35x the bet, and our top score was 220x the bet, obtained after re-trigger in the Friendship Free Spins.

How to win at the Bridesmaids slot machine? (Conclusion)

  • Our constant advice is to familiarize yourself with the game in DEMO mode before starting to play with real money. Especially here, with so many different bonus features.
  • We recommend this slot if you attempt to play with bonus money and complete the wagering requirements, only if you use small bets.
  • We recommend this slot for players with real money as well, but for those who prefer a steady and durable game, rather than smashing ecstasy and grand win outbursts, which may never occur.
  • The slot is a good representation of a Medium Variance slot category, where the wins have mostly average value, but the hit frequency is much high. During testing, we found that the bonus games are launched on average every 70-90 spins. You can utilize this as a moment to change the size of the bet.
  • The most favourable quality of the Bridesmaids slot, lucrative for the players, is that this is not a money-snatcher slot - it successfully retains the balance, especially in mid-span playing time.
  • However, there is an unvoiced limit for winning at the Bridesmaids slot machine. Therefore, we do not recommend prolonging your session if you win over 50% over your beginning capital.
  • We estimate the medium and medium+ bets (10 CAD and 20 CAD per spin) as the most prolific ones, and if you instead want to enjoy an average length session, it is best to use 1/50 part of your balance as a stake.
  • If you often encounter a situation where only 2 cupcakes are appearing but no 3rd one, which is a syndrome of a cold slot, it is better to quit your session and return later or go to another slot.
