Don’t waste time – cash in on the Time is Money
One thing New Yorkers love talking about is the concept of a ‘New York Minute.‘ In their mind, a New York minute is somehow shorter than everyone else’s minutes on account of the fact that everything happens so quickly in that city.
I’m sorry but that’s all nonsense. A minute is 60 seconds wherever you are in the world. Unless you’re in sleepy Sicily, where one of their minutes just seems to last forever. Another expression New Yorkers love is ‘time is money’. I mention that because today we’re discussing the Time is Money slot.
This mobile slot comes to us courtesy of Realistic Games and it’s all about time. Which I like because it’s about time someone made a game about time.
Where to play Time is Money for real
Stay healthy – play the Time is Money slot on mobile
A somewhat rare appearance from Realistic Games in our slot reviews section here at the G2G. The retro-rich Money Matrix made an appearance in the slots section just before Christmas 2016, as did Cashing Rainbows.
I’m always fair and impartial. So I have to say that I think the jury is still out on Realistic Games mobile slots, where the quality can be somewhat variable. But this new release is a good chance to sway my opinion so let’s see how well it fares.
As is the norm with their games, there’s no Progressive Jackpot on offer but there is a Jackpot of 5000 coins (250x your stake) to be won during the free spins round.
Recent research suggests that talking to people sitting next to you on trains, planes and automobiles is dangerous to your health. They might annoy you. Being annoyed leads to stress. Stress leads to health problems. To avoid the risk by instead playing Time is Money on your mobile during any of these situations. It is of course also available on the desktop.
Who does the Inventor’s Assistant look like?
The Time is Money slot is a 5×3 reel mobile game with very clean graphics that really stand out from the background to enhance your playing experience.
Time is at the heart of everything in this slot with all manner of clocks scattered around the reels and on the reels themselves. The Time is Money logo, complete with a watch’s cog, is the Wild and substitutes for all other symbols. Other symbols include a guy who looks like a 19th-century inventor wearing all sorts of apparatus on his back and head and an Aviator with the best moustache I’ve seen since Tom Selleck was in Friends.
There’s also a character who I’ve been told is the Inventor’s Assistant. A beautiful girl with flowing blond hair and big, blue eyes. Shall we play the look-a-like-game? Ok, let’s do it. A reminder of the rules: within the G2G team we all nominate someone who the character in the slot looks like, then vote on the best nominee. I had mentioned Amanda Seyfried, Ashley Olsen and Amy Smart. But the winner is…posh-looking, all-round good girl, English actress Imogen Poots.
The most important of all symbols is the gold-rimmed old fashioned wall clock. Get three of those and free spins are on the cards.
Bonus points for audio originality: there’ some pretty cool piano music playing in the background as you enjoy the action.
Free spins feature boasts big Multipliers
There’s not much to say about how to play Time is Money during the base game because it’s all pretty straightforward. Less is more when it comes to bonus features in this slot because there’s only one Time is Money feature. But it’s a good one.
No prizes for guessing that was the bonus feature but this is no ordinary free spins round. You’ll get 12, 24 or 48 depending on whether you get 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols on the reels.
One cool element of the free spins is that they’re played on a separate reel and have new symbols that aren’t present in the base game – different coloured dinosaurs which suggest that during the free spins round, you’ve gone back in time. Way back in time.
But those elements are relatively tepid compared to the next element which is so cool that it’s almost as cold as a Disney film with the song ‘Let it go’.
After each win, the hands of the clock go round and round and stop on a number from 1 to 12. That’s then your Multiplier for the win you just secured. And once the clock hand has landed on that number, you can’t get it again. Which means that if the Multiplier lands on just a 1x multiplier, on the next win you’re guaranteed at least a 2x multiplier. But this a very generous bonus round and you often get high multipliers of 10, 11 or 12 meaning that only a small win of 2 or 3 Euros can all of a sudden become very decent. I’ve seen Multipliers in free spins round before in slots such as Jungle Jim but because of the guaranteed Multiplier on every win here, this one looks to pay out more.
If you manage to secure 12 wins during the round so that each hour on the clock is blocked out, the 5000 coin Jackpot is yours. And that’s not as impossible as a mission for IMF agent Ethan Hunt. Because not only can you start the round with 48 free spins but you can re-trigger them by getting three (or more) clock symbols during the free spins.
Realistic Games have just gone up in my estimation
Not the best slot I’ve played this year but it’s the best casino slot by Realistic Games I’ve played so far. Ok, the base game is just a little basic but there are some cool characters on display.
A slot with just the one bonus feature will always have its critics but this is one of the best free spins round I’ve seen in a while. Further spins are more often re-triggered than in most other games and those Multipliers can really make your day.
All in all, it’s a pretty volatile slot. Not in the league of Book of Dead but your fortunes can vary a fair bit based on how many times you activate and re-trigger those free spins so braver players will enjoy that side of things.
To play Time is Money for real money I recommend Jeetwin. But you’ll first need an account. Do it now, seize the moment, it won’t take long. After all, time is money.
