Gameplay, Playability and Volatility
The Great Albini offers very traditional video slot gameplay. The base game does include some features and the free spins mode also includes an extra feature to add to the game on the whole.
Mystery box respins
When a full stack of mystery boxes land on the middle reel the mystery box respins feature will trigger. This instantly awards 3 respins. The mystery boxes remain sticky throughout the respins and any new mystery boxes that land on the reels will also remain sticky, as well as resetting the respin counter. Once the counter runs out the respins are finished.
There are two ways to trigger the free spins in The Great Albini. The first way is by landing the free spins symbol on the reels. It is a 3x3 box that will instantly trigger 12 free spins. The second way is by paying either 100, 125 or 150 times your stake for either 8, 10 or 12 free spins respectively. During the free spins mode the Great Albini will randomly perform a trick which will send his assistant onto the reels as a sticky stacked wild that will also add a 2 times multiplier to all wins. The assistant sticky wild will remain in place for a random number of free respins that will not use up your free spins.
The Great Albini has a very high volatility. It can be a very long wait in between wins, this means that it can require high quality bankroll management in order to play the game in the long term. It does offer high payouts to go with the high volatility though.
RTP, Wagers and payouts
The Great Albini has an RTP of 96.60% which is slightly above the market average.
A maximum wager of $50 means that high bankroll players will be comfortable settling in for long lasting games. A minimum wager of $0.25 also gives low bankroll players a similar opportunity. The maximum win of 4,000 times your stake means that players will be able to play for a possible prize of $200,000, which is quite a large win.
The Great Albini: Overall
On the whole the high volatility of The Great Albini can make it a slightly frustrating experience. However, this soon changes when the free spins mode and mystery box respins kick in. Relatively large wins can soon replenish your bankroll which is where the long term engagement really kicks in. If you are a patient person then The Great Albini is an excellent experience. 3.6/5
