About the Game

The game screen of Cool Buck is reminiscent of classic, real-world slots interfaces, with three realistic-looking reels in the top left, shaded to look as though they’re really revolving behind glass.  The symbols, too, are little slices of slots nostalgia, and include cherries, Bars, Dollar Signs and 7s.  Cool Buck himself is far more up-to-date, posing underneath the reels with a double-pointing hand gesture in his modern footwear.  The 5 paylines and symbol values are permanently displayed on the right, which is very handy for reference.  The game’s theme focuses on American money, which is sure to capture the imagination of British players, for whom the Land of the Free can typify all things ‘cool’.

7s are the most lucrative symbol, with payouts of up to 300 credits for 3 along a win line. 

Bonus features include:

  • WILDS – Dollar Symbols are WILD, and substitute for all other symbols to create its own winning combinations.
  • Bet Max Option – a handy button below the reels allows you to quickly adjust your bet to its maximum, which is great for those who like to play at high stakes.
  • Autoplay – activating ‘Expert’ mode will allow you access to the Autoplay feature, in which you can set a bet amount and, in some games, a number of Auto spins.

The features are few, but effective, and this means the game doesn’t feel laden down with unnecessary weight.  On the contrary, it’s crisp, light and cool as a brand-new dollar bill.

The sound effects are perfectly in-keeping with the classic slots theme, with arcade trills and sounds of the reels clicking into place.  Organ notes and a little ‘cool’ soundbite also accompany wins, which helps to really bring the game to life.

The Verdict

This game is beautiful in its simplicity.  Though it uses its online platform to great effect, it gets right back to basics, paring away excess bonus features and streamlining its content so the player can focus on the meat and bones of slots play: spinning and winning.
