Bush Telegraph slot from Microgaming

Bush Telegraph slot from MicrogamingLeaving your home without a mobile phone is unthinkable for most people nowadays. We’ve gotten so used to the fact that we should be available to communicate with anybody, anywhere and anytime. Anything that’s possibly remotely interesting for some kindred spirit on the planet is shared within a few seconds and can go viral in no time (Gangnam style, Charlie bit me…!). Before Facebook, Viber, Twitter, and all similar social media, there was a time when people also felt the urge to communicate over a long distance. We advise you to try the Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot by Microgaming for free.

Maybe the topics weren’t as diverse - Danger! Fire! Enemy! Victory! - but still…communication was and will always be crucial. Before e-mails, postal services, pigeons, signal bonfires, and running messengers, there was the Bush Telegraph. Microgaming takes us all the way back to that time with the Bush Telegraph slot machine and puts its own spin on it, mixing up animals, continents, instruments, and card symbols. This brightly animated, light-hearted slot plays out on a standard 5x3 grid, with 15 pay lines and a fair RTP of 96.56% and low-average volatility. So step into the wild and take a chance for free in the DEMO version on our page. No registration is required.

Personal testers’ opinion

This is one old style but with a sharp graphics machine, where the symbols are very distinctive, which is a good aspect, but the bright colours might be a little too much (hurting your eyes). The average Free Spins round pays approximately 20-25x total bets, and during our tests, we could never obtain more than 97x total bets. This qualifies the slot as flat performing, with a slim (close to none) prospect for winning. The whole potential of the game is low, so you cannot expect epic wins from such low-risk games that offer only low-medium value win combinations. All in all, no decent rewards and no money balance increase could be awaited here. The game scores 5.74 points (out of 10) - a middle line accomplishment for wagering the bonus money, i.e. neutral advice to bonus hunters deciding to use the Bush Telegraph slot machine.
