Some time back, the first X-Factor slot game arrived on the scene and to be honest, I wasn't a fan. It lacked the basics
of what I call a decent slot machine, most notably an exciting free spins bonus. It didn't help that I'm not a big fan
of the show on TV either I guess so X-Factor slot 1 didn't give me any reason to play.
The X-factor Jackpot slot however is a different kettle of fish altogther. I still don't have much interest in the songs, contestants
or extensive video footage but the gameplay is so much better. free spins with sticky wilds, random jackpots and 2 other
bonus rounds (although the "Microphone Bonus" which is reminiscent of the Wishing Well bonus in
the Alice's Wonderland slot is pretty boring to be honest) do make X-Factor 2 far more
playable. Slotjunkies has a full review of the X-Factor slots and also have a video of the 3 bonus features.
As far as eye-candy goes, then the X-factor 2 has to be right up there with the top Novomatic's Book Of Ra but
I could see this game sitting alongside the fruit machines like Reel King and the popular
Rainbow Riches in the bookies on the High Street actually. Be interesting to
see if that happens.
In the free play version of the X Factor Jackpot slot, the three random jackpots are disabled for what should hopefully be
obvious reasons but all the bonus features are otherwise intact.
