Ambassador Slot Overview
How are you on tradition? Hopefully good, because that’s the big feature of Ambassador slot, a new slot from Bet Digital that is based on the sort of in-real-life slot machine that so many of us older guys wasted so much money on in pubs, bars, arcades and railway stations back in the day.
That’s not meant to be a criticism. Some of you might love a simple game that delivers a nostalgic thrill if you actually remember those beeping, flashing machines, and really easy gameplay if you don’t.
The figures are pretty up-to-date, with a 97% theoretical return to the player that might bring in a few gamblers on its own. It’s rated as a medium volatility machine and has staking from 0.01 coins to 25 coins. The top win is 15, 00 coins.
And here’s a number that might surprise you. Ambassador is doing very well with punters and has remained popular for quite a while after its release in March 2018! So there must be something to this simple game.
Ambassador, you are spoiling us
Ambassador slot isn’t just based on an old fruit machine, it looks literally exactly like one, with a set of reels at the bottom and an upper screen with all the extras on. All the controls – yes, drawn exactly like the old square plastic buttons – run along the bottom.
That means a single pay line, which is very rare these days.
The reels too relate back to the good old days, with a pay table made up of fruits and stars with the “bar” symbols sitting at the top of the league in terms of value. Stars operate as a sort of multiplier, and a joker is the wild.
Unfortunately, the design is very vertical, so it’s really best suited to portrait-format mobile screens, and can look small and a little cramped even in quite large landscape screens.
Embassies and immunities
There isn’t a great deal to the game itself. But there are bonus gambles.
You can gamble your wins with the second reel with coloured numbers that can multiply your win by as much as four times. There is also a super meter game, which takes the game onto the second reel. The Ambassador Wheel Bonus is triggered by the stars, opening up a chance reel that could deliver a 1,000 times stake win. A Fruit Pot bonus is a totalizer with a top prize of 5,000 coins.
If you like your games fairly simple then perhaps Ambassador slot machine is for you. It certainly seems to be pleasing players, and perhaps there is a market for unsophisticated sounds and graphics. The bonus games and extras aren’t to be sniffed at and simplicity of a single pay line and easy-to-follow extras has its own charm.
The super meter style of play has its fans, and they will find a lot to like here, but the super simple graphics and crowded screens might well put off a lot of players. As you can see, we’re swinging both ways on this game, so the best advice is to give it a spin yourself and see if you like simplicity or sophistication.
