Triple Chance is an old-school, retro-styled real-money slot from Merkur that pays homage to the fruit machines that used to dominate the industry. Out reviewers were really taken by the stunning design work here, not to mention the excellent re-wins feature.
Fruit machine themed, retro-heavy slots are not a new thing, so it’s hard for one to stand out. This is especially true given the point of these slots is to be minimal in terms of design. However, Merkur’s 3x5 payline, Triple Chance does a great job of having the classic slot machine symbols pop off the reels with striking colors and strong linework.
The reels area strong white with an exploding red background adding some intensity to the feel of the slot, while the soundtrack is surprisingly entertaining for a vintage styled slot.
You’re looking to fill the reels here to trigger the feature, but even if you don’t, there are some wins to be grabbed for three-of-a-kind combinations.
As a three-reel slot, each of the symbols appearing on the reels of Triple Chance have only one value, a three-of-a-kind payout.
Each of the classic symbols pays out for a full payline, with the lemons, plums, oranges, and cherries all paying 40 coins, the bells paying 60 coins, and the double 7s rewarding an impressive 200 coins.
It is the sun symbol you’re after here though, paying 750 coins.
With the capability of filling every reel position, and therefore all five paylines, with this symbol, there’s a max jackpot of 3,750 on a single spin with Triple Chance.
Fill the screen with any symbol, and the game really starts to get interesting!
When the same symbol hits every reel position, not only will you get a three-of-a-kind payout for each of the five paylines, but you’ll also trigger the re-win feature.
There’s a mini-game that plays out here, involving spinning a wheel. The wheel has four positions, three mysteries, and one-stop.
Hit the mystery section, and another win and another spin come your way, and that continues until the wheel lands on stop.
Triple Chance also comes with not one, but two different gamble features. The first is the classic Gamble Card option, bet on red or black for a double or nothing bet after a base game win.
Then there’s the Gamble Ladder, here, click in time with the flashing lights to successfully climb the ladder, doubling your win every time you do. The higher up the ladder you go, the bigger your wins get.
Triple Chance is available on all mobile and tablet devices for Android and iOS users. Rarely available as a part of downloadable casino apps (although its descendants Double Triple Chance and Triple Triple Chance are more likely to be found here) this slot is best accessed via instant play through casino sites from your web browser.
As this is such a simple slot, both visually and in terms of gameplay, mobile users can have the exact same experience as desktop players without any notable tweaks necessary to the slot.
Merkur is a software developer that many casual online casino fans may not be aware of. However, those with knowledge of brick-and-mortar casinos and land-based slot machines are much more likely to know the name.
At this point, most of Merkur’s online output has been transformed versions of the provider’s popular land-based games, so there’s a lot of retro and classic themes going on. When they’re executed as well as Triple Chance and its sequels, however, that’s okay! Magic Mirror Deluxe 2 and Spirits of the East are online Merkur slots worth checking out if you want to learn more about what this licensed and regulated developer can do.
Triple Chance is no longer the latest ‘chance’ slot, since the introduction to its successors - Double Triple Chance and Triple Triple Chance, taking the original concept and improving it. However, there are still perks to be found from playing the original version of this slot.
The retro feel is so well executed here, this is one of the most attractive old-school style slots we’ve seen, and we’ve seen a lot!
Would another feature help? Probably, everyone loves free spins, right? But, between the re-wins feature and the two different gamble options, this slot still has a lot to enjoy, and if the bonus feature triggers regularly, it can have a positive impact on your casino balance!
