What's the best second screen game?
17 May 2011
There are two main types of slot game bonuses. The first is the free spin game that seems to dominate the market, where players scatter in three or more symbols to activate this bonus, before moving to a second set of ‘enriched’ reels. There is another kind of bonus game and that’s the second screen game where the player is moved away from the reels, often to a different kind of game entirely, allowing them to win money through a new challenge. There are many types of these second screen slots about, but which has the best version of this bonus?
The first game we’ll look at it Battleship: Search & Destroy. This game has a number of bonuses including a free spin round, but with this brilliant themed slot it’s all about the second screen game where you get to play the conventional grid based Battleships game, where you’ve got eight shots to find all five of the standard ship types in the game, such as the frigate, destroyer and submarine. Many slots simply have second screen games that are ‘on rails’ where your actions actually have no effect on the game’s payout, however this isn’t the case here, making this a proper cash paying challenge.
Although Battleship Search and Destroy has an excellent second screen game, one of my favourite bonus rounds can be found on another board game inspired slot. The fantastic Monopoly Here and Now, this game gives you a chance to build up your property during the standard reel game and then move onto a special Monopoly board where you can cash in on your properties by landing on the appropriate square.
This game is perfect for any player who’s looking for something different from the host of free spin slots out there, but doesn’t want to compromise on the game’s payout potential. Both the slots mentioned here are available at safe and secure online casinos including Virgin Casino, Paddy Power Casino and Sky Vegas.
If you want to find out what all the fuss is about then why not take a trip down to one of these superb online operators, where you can take a few free spins on these games and experience the thrills and spills in slot game second screen action.
