The Big Bopper Slots

The Big Bopper slots, released in April 2016 by RTG, is homage to American rockabilly musician, songwriter and disc jockey J.P. Richardson also known as The Big Bopper. At the age of 29 he lost his life in a plane crash along with music stars Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens and the event became known as The Day the Music Died. 

The slot revives The Big Bopper and his greatest hits “Chantilly Lace” and “The White Lightening” which serve as a soundtrack of the game. Besides the music, you will also meet legendary musician animated playing his guitar. The slot is played at six reels and offers amazing 729 ways to win along with several rewarding features including all ways pay, free spins and multipliers. The top prize is set at 30,000 coins.

The online video slot takes you back to the 1950’s, the Golden Age of Rock ‘n Roll and you will find yourself surrounded by the items such as a gramophone, radio, microphone and a golden record award. You are to place at least three matching symbols on adjacent reels left to right or right to left in order to get a prize. As soon as you set your wager and start spinning the reels you’ll see the benefits of its structure and the rewarding 729 ways to win. The slot is also a home to three bonus features – the Instant Win feature and two bonus games. The Big Bopper Instant Win feature is triggered when Bopper Scatters show up on the reels. During this feature you can win up to 250x your total bet and enjoy the vintage footage of The Big Boppers singing and playing his guitar.

Another bonus feature is the Chantilly Lace Free Spins feature, named after his greatest hit from 1958, delivering up to 45 free games. While Richardson sings his popular rockabilly song starting with “Hello, baby!” all payouts are multiplied by 10x. You can also hit the White Lightning Free Games round during which you can spin the reels for free for as long as the legendary singer sings another popular song “White Lightening”. During these features the reels are covered by the iconic images of a singer with his guitar.

You might not be familiar with the fact that the line “the day the music died” from the song “The American Pie” is dedicated to The Big Bopper and his late colleagues and this may be the perfect opportunity to hear some of the songs performed by this talented man. The vintage themed new slot form RTG lets you enjoy the music of the music star that died too soon bringing about nostalgia and you may find yourself wanting to go jitterbugging. The good news about the highly entertaining and rewarding machine is that it is available across all the platforms meaning that you can enjoy it on your mobile devices wherever you are. With 729 ways to win and all its features, it deserves your full attention, so don’t wait to give it a try. Our rating: 85/100
