Bally Technologies is a brand synonymous with high quality slots whether in land-based casino settings or, more recently, at online or virtual casinos. One of the latest innovations from the Bally brand is their Quick Hit slots. In our quick and easy guide to Bally’s Quick Hit slots for 2017, we take a look at some of the top features as well as range of titles within the Quick Hit series.
The very first slot game that Bally released in their Quick Hit series was simply titled Quick Hits which can be played at most top Bally-powered online casinos. However, since the success of their flagship slot in this series, Bally produced a number of follow up slots, expanding the Quick Hit series for top online casinos. Players may now find additional titles including:
The secret to the success of the Bally Quick Hit slot series, lies in their combination of fun and simple gameplay, with the ability to make real money in a simpler slot format. All of the Quick Hit slots feature fantastic graphics that follow a classic slots style but with 5 reels and multiple fixed paylines. HD crisp graphics are accompanied with symbols such as cherries, Bars, bells, and lucky 7’s, all which add to a real vintage-style look and feel. However, while Bally kept the design of these games a bit more traditional, the actual slot engine is based on the Alpha 2 Pro Stepper platform, one of the most sophisticated digital slots platforms in the industry.
Here’s a quick overview of the slots available in the Bally Quick Hit series:
Quick Hit Pro
The Quick Hit Pro slot features 40 paylines over 5 reels and is the fourth title in the series. The outstanding feature that can be found in Quick Hit Pro and not the other titles in the series, is the addition of the Prochinko Free Games Round. This bonus round is based on the popular Prochinko machines and can be triggered by landing at least three scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. Players will then score 15 free Prochinko games on a separate screen and set of reels which cannot be retriggered. Other than that, Quick Hit Pro features the same classic Vegas-style bells, cherries, bars and 7’s along with wilds, scatters and multipliers. The betting range is flexible enough to suit all playing budgets, starting at 0.01 up to 10.00 per payline/per spin.
Quick Hit Las Vegas
Quick Hit Las Vegas features 30 paylines over 5 reels and features a realistic Las Vegas slot machine look and feel. As with the other titles in the Quick Hit series, Quick Hit Las Vegas features useful gameplay icons including wilds, multipliers (Quick Hit symbol) and the Free Games symbol. Getting three or more Free Games symbols will trigger the bonus round which is based on a ‘pick a square’ type game. The idea is to pick hidden icons until there's a match that displays three free game icons. Players can win a range of free spins plus different multiplier values, depending on the results of the selections. The overall look and feel of this Quick Hits title will appeal to fans of the glitz and glam of Las Vegas and includes fun symbols such as roulette wheels, cocktails and card symbols.
Quick Hit Black Gold
Quick Hit Black Gold features 30 paylines over 5 reels along with all of the classic Vegas slot symbols that we've come to expect from Bally. Along with lucky 7’s, cherries, bars and bells, Quick Hit Black Gold offers a few unique ones as well. This includes a combo symbol called the Any Bar symbol, the Quick Hit logo scatter, Free Fever Games logo, locking wilds, 2x Pays, 3x Pays and the Question Mark. The scatter symbol can trigger one of four bonus rounds by getting three or more on the five reels. Getting as many as nine scatters will also award players with a payout of up to 250 times the stake.
One of the biggest secrets for success when playing any of the Bally Quick Hit slots series, is the use of the games special features. Quick Hit slots are all about their respective special features and using game logo scatters and wilds will help to not only put big winning combos together, but it will also help to unlock the bonus rounds. Getting free spins also significantly helps to add to winning totals and a crucial part of this is getting multipliers to kick in with free spins. This may double, triple or even quadruple the winning value.
