There seems to be a growing trend in slots from this brand: they seem to be offering flexible winlines instead of fixed ones, allowing for greater range when playing on the matrix. Sometimes you might only get to play around with 5 or 10 lines, but sometimes you come across 20 paylines like here.
The (+) and (-) widgets control the volume with which you play, and will take you down to the minimum of 5 lines, allowing smooth customisation of the grid. It would have been nice to have the option of playing with only a single line, but with how tedious a game can become from such dynamics, it’s probably wise the restriction is in place.
Try Before You Buy
Most slots nowadays offer play for fun options, but that doesn’t make it any less of a novelty, particularly for those looking to explore unknown titles from lesser known brands. Rising Liner has many demo versions available, with the game as engaging as the real version, meaning you can get the buzz of winning without having to pay a single penny.
Games such as this are best being tested out, whenever you can, for classic based slot machines are an acquired taste. They tend to be on the simple side, offering ease of play rather than flashy designs and gimmicks, and so if you’re not used to such minimal dynamics, you’re best trying them out before you cash in.
Spiralling out of Control
The best bit of Rising Liner (and we seriously mean this) is the wild icon. Most wilds don’t do a great deal except for subbing other icons, but with this symbol you get to experience a whirling vortex. The spiral pulls in the other icons surrounding it and converts them in order to create a win for you.
On paper it sounds lame, but when you see it you’ll be bubbling up with excitement, especially when you see the number of wins falling into place thanks to this machine of a symbol. We got four winning lines at once, not bad for a first experience of the one and only feature of the game.
Raising the Stakes
Gamers can go in as hard or as gently as they want to, but if you want to get the most out of Rising Liner, we suggest you bet the maximum amount. If you have the cash why not? It means wins as juicy as 2,000 credits, which isn’t out of this world, but more than substantial for a slot this old.
Should you lower the betting range to the min amount, you have to deal with wins that are limited to 10 credits, coming in from the gold 7; not got the same ring to it has it? Be the high roller you was born to be and take the plunge!
Hook, Line and Sinker
We fell kind of hard for Rising Liner, even though it looks to be just another run of the mill slot machine. Although we could put it down to charm alone, derived from classic detailings, it’s the wild feature that has us hooked; one taste of that and we wanted more.
As far as vintage games go, you could do a lot worse than this one. If you’re still on the fence, take advantage of that demo we mentioned and give the reels a try.
