Betsoft announces second Miles Bellhouse slot
Betsoft Gaming’s popular character Miles Bellhouse is back yet again with his time travel antics and Gears of Time flaunts stunning film-standard graphics and animation.
The intense video slot follows the story of dynamic scientist Miles and his loyal robot sidekick Gizmo as they traverse through the past, present, and future. Betsoft Gaming loyalists will know Miles from the 2017 title Miles Bellhouse and the Curious Machine, and the new 5-reel 5-row title throws in a few twists across a supersized grid, designed to replicate a subterranean Gothic-Victorian storehouse. Standard in-game symbols include timepieces, cogs, aviators, and wheels, while Miles and Gizmo are the high-paying symbols.
Bonus, Features, and Payouts
The base game offers up to 1,084x the total stake while bonus rounds and free spins amplify the winning sum. Additional features include cascading wins, Cluster of Time bonus, and Time Traveling modifiers that offer up to 96.98% RTP. Buy-ins range between €0.05 to €50 per spin and medium volatility makes it ideal for beginners and casual gamers.
Although the winning amount is on the lower side, the game offers a win one out of five (25% hit rate) times during standard rounds and three out of five times (60% hit rate) during the free spin rounds. Higher RTP works in the game’s favour, although the €54,240 jackpot is a slight letdown for the more serious bunch. Nonetheless, Miles Bellhouse Gears of Time achieves what the designers had in mind.
The unusual cluster pay feature is among the game’s highlights and flaunts Miles experimenting with time. The players must choose five positions in the gaming area, and as the cascade comes to a stop, winning clusters might form in the highlighted area. Landing one or more clusters within the selected positions triggers the free spin rounds, increasing your chances of winning.
The game triggers three possible variations of the Time Traveler modifier. Landing The Past re-plays the last round and as the spin ends a cascade with non-matching symbols appears, improving your chances of winning. The process repeats five times before payout.
The Present triggers random multipliers between 2x and 20x and is the rarest modifier, appearing once every 330 attempts. The Future picks one random symbol from the reels and triggers a free respin, replacing existing symbols with matching icons to form a winning cluster.
Miles Bellhouse Gears of Time is an interesting video slot with a few novelties to keep the amateurs hooked. Unless you’re looking for a serious win, the title offers plenty of entertainment and sufficient smaller wins, making it a great wagering slot. For instance, landing a winning cluster on five special positions triggers free spins with three possible outcomes including:
- 1. The chance of scoring six future free spins with over 10 symbols of the same kind forming a cluster.
- 2. Trigger 10 free spins with a random multiplier up to 20x.
- 3. Trigger 12 free spins with re-cascade at the end of each round!
The long list of potential features is what works in the title’s favour!
