The Big Bopper is a Rock and Roll themed slot machine that has an All Ways Pays format. With 6 reels and 729 ways to win per spin, the slot offers you various ways to win big. Produced by Realtime Gaming, you can expect an innovative slot that is a tribute to JP Richardson Jr, known for Chantilly Lace. Take a trip down memory lane looking into all things that are associated with the rock and roll artist. In this slot review we look at the different symbols, features, bonus game and string together the free spins so you know what to expect.
The 50s rock inspired slot machine uses 6 reels and offers you 729 pay lines. The game starts when you set a betting range that you are comfortable with. You will click on the spin button to set the reels in motion or use the auto play if you want the reels to spin automatically without any interruption.
The slot game also has a speed button that you can use to set how fast you want the reels to turn, you can choose between 3 gears.
Big Bopper Slot Features
Whenever a Wild Symbol helps to generate a new line win, that prize will automatically be multiplied by 3X. The Wild Symbol is The Big Bopper and this symbol can appear stacked to fill the entire reel when showing up on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. The only symbols that the wild symbols will not substitute are the scatter symbols. This game has a total of 6 different Scatter Symbols and these include the letters B.O.P.P.E.R.
The main bonus feature will instantly trigger when you spell out the word ‘BOPPER’ across the reels. All you need to do is hit the spin button to find out which of the free bonus features you have won. However, if just 3, 4 or 5 of the scattered letters show up across the reels, a free Re-Spin will trigger and this will hopefully bring the remaining letters in to trigger the main bonus feature.
If you are awarded the Instant Win Feature, The Big Bopper will start singing Chantilly Lace, awarding an instant coin prize worth up to 20x times your total bet. He may then continue to sing, awarding additional prizes worth 50x, 100x, or even up to 250x times your total bet. The other two bonus features that you can win are both Free Spins Bonus Rounds.
The reels are filled with music related symbols such as records, guitar, old microphone, vintage telephone, gold record award and more. Here is how each of these symbols pays out when you match 6 symbols on the reels
Lightning Bolt – 20,000 credits
Gold Record – 10,000 credits
Jukebox – 500 credits
Microphone – 250 credits
Record and record player – 200 credits

Free Spins Feature
If you win the Chantilly Lace Feature, The Big Bopper will start singing the same song, awarding Free Spins and a Prize Multiplier. He may continue singing to award up to as many as 45 Free Spins with a maximum 10X Prize Multiplier. The other Free Spins Bonus is called White Lightnin’ Free Games and these Free Spins will continue for as long as The Big Bopper sings the White Lightnin’ song. As soon as he stops singing, the Free Spins Bonus will come to an end.
We thoroughly enjoyed this vintage musical spectacular featuring Jiles Perry Richardson, Jr., also known as The BigBopper. The legendary musician, and songwriter, appears on the reel to complete combinations allowing you to win more.
