Betty Bonkers Overview
Some games try to stand out in slot reviews by using unusual themes that we don't typically associate with slots. But Quickspin's Betty Bonkers is an old-timey fruit machine with an aesthetic evoking Las Vegas in the 1950s.
The title character is a Jayne Mansfield-like blonde bombshell who appears as a cowgirl in the base game and dons a slinky red dress for the bonus round, accompanied by music similar to Irving Berlin's ‘Puttin' On The Ritz’.
Whether you play Betty Bonkers for free or for real money, you'll find yourself on a grid that has three reels and, officially, five rows. However, as two of these rows form the ‘Betty's Menu’ special feature, this means that the main playing area is a 3×3 grid with five paylines.
You can bet between 0.20 and 100 and stand a chance of hitting a max win of 10,467x your bet. The standard RTP is 96.10%, although some online versions of the game are set at 94.19% or 87.15%, while the volatility is consistently high.
- The low-ranking symbols are fruit, and landing three in a row will earn you 1x your bet (lemon), 2x your bet (plum), or 3x your bet (cherry).
- The higher-paying symbols stick to slot machine tradition: you will win 5x your bet for three bells, 8x your bet for three bars, and 15x your bet for three lucky sevens.
- The special symbols are the Wild (substitutes for all regular symbols) and the Bonus Scatter (landing two will activate Betty's Menu, while three will take you to Mega Free Spins).
Betty Bonkers Features
- Mega Free Spins: Access this round by landing three Bonus Scatters or spending 300x your bet in Bonus Buy.
- Bonkers Line: This is the middle row in the Mega Free Spins and has a multiplier attached. Each time you land three matching symbols in the middle row, the multiplier will go up by 1+ (its maximum is 10x), and you'll activate Betty's Menu.
- Betty's Menu (Base Game): This comprises the upper two special reels and has six unique symbols. If you activate Betty's Menu by landing two Bonus Scatters or spending 30x your bet on Bonus Buy, then one symbol will be randomly chosen. The Circles will remove the two lowest symbols; the W will add one or two random Wilds; the Circled X will add a 3-5x multiplier; the Linked Reels will link two adjacent reels; the Crown will award a random jackpot (10x, 100x, or 1,000x); and the Stars will give you six, nine, or 12 free spins.
- Betty's Menu (Mega Free Spins): As noted, you'll activate Betty's Menu in the Free Spins round by landing three symbols on the Bonkers Line. The six symbols are a little different on the menu here as their values are increased. The Circles now remove the four lowest symbols; the W adds three to four random Wilds; the Circled X gives you a 6-10x multiplier; the Linked Reels links all reels together; the Crown awards a random jackpot of 100x, 1,000x, or 10,000x; and the Stars get you one free spin, a +1 Bonkers Multiplier, and another random symbol on Betty's Menu.
To Spin or Not To Spin?
Betty Bonkers is a successful attempt to fuse a pared-down slot grid with a host of special features. The one downside is that Betty herself is a half-hearted mascot; her animation consists of wobbling back and forth like a cardboard cut-out (a still image would've been preferable), while her text-only catchphrases (such as “That Razzes My Berries!”) are generic fare. Beyond this, the retro aesthetic is very pleasing indeed.
