Dead Man’s Fingers Overview
Dead Man’s Fingers is the latest product from independent slot provider G Games. Opening the slot, we were immediately impressed by the standard of graphics and the enticing theme. However, this excitement quickly waned when it dawned on us that this game was just a reskinned version of a previous G Games product. What G Games have done here is taken their previous release Tiger Tiger and transplant it into a new Pirate theme.
This is a little disappointing, considering the lengths that the studio has gone to create a completely new theme. Then again, we can’t say we were surprised as it is a common practice, especially amongst smaller studios with smaller budgets.
The main feature in this game is the cash collect feature. Throughout the base game and bonus game, you will see quick hit money symbols with various values displayed on them. When these symbols are present on reels 1-4, and then a collect symbol falls onto reel 5, all displayed values will be paid out. Jackpots can also be won in this fashion by collecting jackpot symbols. The other feature is the free spins round triggered when players land three scatter symbols on the reels at the same time. This will give you ten free spins. Quick hit money symbols and collect symbols fall with greater frequency during the bonus game. All features will be explained in more detail later on in the review.
Theme and Symbols
The theme of this game is pirates and lost treasure. As with most pirate-themed slots, this one bases its aesthetics on the tropes established by the novel Treasure Island, written by Robert Louis Stevenson. In the story, wild and unruly buccaneers sail the open seas pillaging and destroying ships with one eye always concentrated on buried treasure. This slot has all the same aesthetic hooks as the novel, including treasure chests, skull and crossbones flags and, of course, the mighty Blackbeard captain. Although the pirate in this game actually has a skeletal hand, hence the name of the game- Dead Man’s Fingers.
The background for this game is the famous treasure island that so many pirates spend their lives looking for. Old tales say that the island is a deposit for some of the most infamous and wealthy pirates, making it the perfect destination for any salty sea dog. The steep cliffs, perilous jungles and terrifying dead pirates in cages displayed in this game give a good representation of how the setting appears in the book. If G Games put half as much effort into the slot’s mechanics as the background, this would have been a promising slot indeed.
The playing window for this game has been styled to look like a treasure map with borders made from wood and rope.
The symbols for Dead Man’s Fingers are split into low-value, high-value and special symbols. The low-value symbols are the colourful skull coins. These come in grey, green, red, blue, and gold. The golden coin is the most valuable of these, paying 8x the stake for the top combination. On the other hand, the more valuable symbols are the blue gem, the green gem, the purple gem, and the golden gem. However, the most valuable symbol on the board is the pirate captain. He is worth 80x the stake for the top combination. The specials for this game are the octopus wild, the compass scatters, the treasure quick hit symbols, and the skeletal hand collect icon.
Dead Man’s Fingers is played on a 4-reel, 4-row machine with 25 fixed pay lines. To win combinations, players must land three or more matching symbols on pay lines moving from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
The betting range for Dead Man’s Fingers is 25p to £100 per spin. To adjust their bet levels, players can toggle their stake up and down using the tool located at the bottom left-hand side of the screen.
Further information, including a short tutorial and a display of the paytable, can be found via the menu button in the right-hand corner of the screen. The spin and auto spin buttons are located in the centre of the screen.
Volatility for this slot is rated in the medium to high range. The return to player percentage for Dead Man’s Fingers is 95.2%, which is below average. The biggest payout that players can win on one spin is 2,740x your stake.
There is a cash collect bonus in both the base and free spins game that helps you rake in extra instant cash. The way it works is that you need to land a variety of chests with values displayed on them on reels 1-4. Then to collect them, you need to land a collect symbol on the fifth row. You need both to collect. Each normal cash symbol has a value between 1x and 20x the stake.
You can also win jackpots using this same mechanic. Instead of collecting cash symbols, you have to collect chests with jackpots displayed on them. There are four jackpots available to win. The most valuable of these is the grand jackpot worth 1,000x the bet. Collect three or more of the same jackpot symbols to be awarded the corresponding jackpot amount.
The other feature in this game is the free spins game, triggered when players land three scatter symbols at the same time. The scatter in this game is the compass. During these ten spins, more cash and collect symbols will fall onto the reel than in the base game, increasing your chance of winning additional cash prizes. You can also retrigger the game by landing an additional three scatters from within the game. There is no limit to the number of times you can retrigger this feature.
There is no getting away from the fact that this game is a reskinned version of Tiger Tiger, however, we still enjoyed this game. However, we wouldn’t recommend this as a moneymaker of a slot as the RTP, and top win could really do with some work. However, as an easy and relaxed game to play on a weekend, this is a good choice.
