Triple Chance is a classic slot by Sunmaker, otherwise known as Merkur. There are no bells and whistles and it looks like a simple fruit machine, but this 3 reel slot has 5 paylines, plus re-win and gamble features that make this much more lucrative than the typical slot machine.
To get started with Triple Chance, set your Coin Size via the coin icon on the bottom right side of the screen. Unlike many other slots, in Triple Chance’s simplicity, the Coin Size is directly equal to your bet per spin. This goes from $0.05, $0.10, $0.25, $0.50, $1, $2.50, $5 to $10. The Max Bet button will set your bet size immediately to $10. The 5 lines are active at all times, so there’s nothing to touch there. After that you are ready to hit spin.
There is an Auto Start setting at the bottom left of the screen – this is the equivalent of Auto Play in many other slots. However, while it does make the action happen quicker, in Auto Start, the reels will not stop after a win – the wins are automatically collected and then the reels spin again. This is normally not an issue, but you will miss out on the opportunity to up your win through the Gamble feature that is offered after every spin.
From highest to lowest value:
Triple Chance won’t look like much of a moneymaker when you compare it with the flashy video slots out there. The highest win from spinning three 77 symbols is just 15 coins. However, the game does have a decent RTP of 96.11%, so these small wins will be coming in reasonably often. And if you play with the Gamble feature after each win, you can easily claim 140 coins or more after a regular winning spin.
A classic slots, Triple Chance is thin on special features. But what it does have can deliver amazing results:
After every win, you have the option to gamble with it. You will be presented with two blue buttons, which are the two kinds of Gamble options available:
Gamble Ladder (Ladder symbol in the button)
Click on this button, and then a ladder with coin prizes will appear. Step up or down the ladder and collect the coins. You can keep going or collect your loot after each step. If you manage to make it all the way up, you’ll get 140 coins, clean.
Click on this button and you will have a screen with a deck of cards, with the amount to be won displayed. You have to guess the colour of the next card to win the amount. Maximum win here is also 140 coins.
In both the Ladder and Card options, you can cut your risk at any time, and go for the Collect Half button to take a smaller prize and go back to the main game.
It’s also worth repeating again – the Gamble Feature will not be available if you are playing through the Auto Start setting. You’ll only get it if you manually press the spin button each time.
If by a stroke of luck, you spin 9 of the same symbols to cover the reels completely, not only will you win with a heck of a lot of lines, but the Re-win feature will also be triggered. A full screen appears with a light, and if the light stops at a green, you win the full screen again. If it stops at red, the feature is ended. You can win the full screen a maximum of 3 times.
Triple Chance is totally retro. It’s as simple looking as can be and looks very much like a fruit machine sitting at the corner of a pub, complete with that whirring and clicking sound. The mute button is on the top right corner of the screen when it gets too much. Certainly this slot will not blow anyone away with its looks, but for those feeling nostalgic for simpler games, Triple Chance is an excellent choice.
Triple Chance is a zesty fruit machine. It looks rather basic at first, but the gamble and re-win features can boost your win significantly. And at the risk of sounding like a broken record, these amazing features are only available if you press the spin button yourself each time – playing in Auto Start (aka Auto Play in other slots) will not give you these extras. This game goes back to the basics and can be surprisingly fun – check it out for yourself.
