Where to play?
From Dusk Till Dawn is a Novomatic progressive jackpot video slot that has 50 paylines and 5 reels. It’s based on the cult Hollywood film of the same name.
The characters that pitched in the movie grace the reels as well, you’ll see the beautiful voluptuous Selma Hayek (Santanico Pandemonium), Kate Fuller (Juliette Lewis), Richard ‘Richie’ Gecko (Quentin Tarantino), low value card symbols from 10 to Ace, wilds, Mexican road signs, Seth Gecko (George Clooney) and Jacob Fuller (Harvey Keitel).
During the main game there are 3 bonus modes that’s randomly triggered (Bonus Twister Wheel, Dancing Bonus and Mugshot Bonus). Each bonus game comes with series of wilds, multipliers that shoot up to 25x, free spins kitted with wilds that pays a cool 5,000x your stake on a single free spin and a symbol collection feature. The symbol that offers the best payout is Seth Gecko, 5 of them at the max bet pays 5x your stake. It’s an interesting symbol too because it appears 3-high. Last but certainly not least are the two progressive jackpots!
Players can spin the reels from £0.50 up to a maximum of £10 per spin. The RTP or average payout percentage of From Dusk Till Dawn is 94% to 95.6%. The volatility goes up as you increase your average bet per spin. Against the backdrop of the reels is a desert.
There’s no definitive strategy when it comes to playing a progressive jackpot. You can either go all in or you can play it selectively. By selectively we mean ‘calculated’. If your bankroll is £1,000 you can play it at a maximum bet of £10 per spin (100 spins) and hope for the best. We provide some valuable progressive jackpot tips on this page (https://casinowhizz.com/site/progressive-slots-jackpot-game-tips/).
During the main game 3 bonus games can be triggered randomly on every spin:
On The Road
Symbols are transformed into wilds when a getaway cars speeds across the reels.
Everybody Be Cool
The Richie, Jacob and Kate symbols are turned into the higher Seth symbol.
This is an interesting feature, an explosion occurs on condition the payout you received is higher or the same as your average bet per spin. A multiplier of 5x to 25x increases your wins by a substantial margin.
Three Bonus Twister scatters or to be more blunt the ‘Titty Twister’ (as in the movie) scatters, triggers the Bonus Twister Wheel. The wheel’s function is two fold: It offers cash prizes and helps you to trigger additional bonus games. For every cash prize you win, each cash prizes’ value increases on your next spin. If you win 3 cash prizes in one go you’ll be presented with two bonus features:
The Dancing Bonus
Ten free spins is awarded, even the symbols on the reels look different (hearts, clubs, diamonds, tequila bottles, snakes, dominoes, Razor Charlie (Danny Trejo), dice and dominoes).
The dancing wild symbol is Santanico Pandemonium (Selma Hayek), it replaces symbols adjacent to it. The dancing wild shape shifts if you will on every free spin – it covers 2 to 12 symbol on the centre reels, basically on each free spin 3 wild reels occur. The Xtra Shock feature is another bonus mode to look out for. It’s played when the flames appear on reels 1 and 5. The payout can be huge if it combines with the 3 wild centre reels.
Here you get 3 free spins, only Seth and Richie, Level Up or Change symbols appear. A payout is given every time a Seth or Richie symbol pitches, the symbols stick to the reels, whilst the feature is active the free spins reset to 3. The moment the Change Symbol stops and a Level UP symbol pops up on the reels, the Richie and Seth held symbol values quadruple. During the feature you can win as much as 5,000x your stake.
From Dusk Till Dawn has two progressive jackpots: The Dusk Jackpot (100x your stake) and the Dawn Jackpot (21,000x your stake). Of the two jackpots the Dawn jackpot is the most valuable, this is why it is important to play the game at the maximum bet. If you don’t you’ll only receive a fraction of the jackpot.
It’s not often you see a progressive jackpot slots with so many bonus features. It’s fun to play and the chance of winning a substantial amount of cash is on the cards too, that’s if you live to see the light of day!.
