Under the Hammer
Gamesys have certainly ploughed a lot of effort into the creation of this slot machine, as the reels of the game are placed inside a very expensive wooden picture frame, which is hanging on the wall of the auction house. Patterned wall paper surrounds the screen and the symbols on the reels make the story come alive.
A tea set, golden ornament, antique clock, love chair, auctioneer, wild and card values of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are the symbols of this game. The auctioneer and wild have additional benefits, which we will explain more about later. Use the coin adjuster to the lower of the screen to set your bet – or if you are looking to play high roller stakes of 200.00 a spin, you can simply press the bet max button to save you time and effort.

You can get your hands on some big cash when playing the Winning Lot slot game, the tea set is the symbol that can boost your bankroll by 2,500 coins. The more you spend per spin, the more valuable that 2,500-coin jackpot will become. Land a five of a kind of the tea set symbols on any of your active paylines to receive that cash sum instantly into your bankroll.
High value symbols are the items that are for sale in the auction house, these are the golden ornament for 1,250 coins, the antique clock for 750 coins and the love chair for 500 coins. The remaining symbols will pay between 50 and 250 coins for a win line full.
There’s a very exciting bonus game that can be triggered whilst playing the Winning Lot slot game, this is called the Antique Auction feature. Land at least three of the suave auctioneer symbols (scatter) on the reels to enter into this bonus round. You are sat in the paying crowd and the auctioneer will be stood on his stage with 5 items – a lamp, gramophone, golden knight ornament, radio and telephone. Pick which one you’d like to keep and the coins keep flowing, until someone beats you to buying that item.
The wild symbol speaks for itself, it replaces all symbols bar the auctioneer to help create winning combinations. Scatter symbols pay in any position and are multiplied by the total coins bet – the more you stake, the more you can receive.
Playtech have their very own auction themed slot machine for you to play and it offers lots of excitement combined with a classic fruit machine. Art Auction is a 5-reel, 5-payline slot game that allows you to play from 0.05 to 100.00. Spin the reels and watch as the priceless art pieces float around the reels and if the jewellery should fall as a full winning payline, you will be rewarded with 2,000x your stake.
As with real-life auctions, the items are sold to the highest bidder and in the Winning Lot slot machine, it’s technically the same thing – the most money will be awarded to those who bet big stakes. We found this slot to be a medium to high variance, this means it won’t throw wins on the reels too often, so you will need a bankroll that can take sustained losses. The bonus game offers the most wins, that’s probably why it doesn’t come along too often.
