Stumpy McDoodles Lost in Time is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Travel to the Emerald Isle on desktop or mobile from 0.20 to 60 credits per spin. The game has medium to high volatility an estimated RTP of 96.26%.
Stumpy and his wife Penny will welcome you to a picture-perfect realm that is so familiar with Irish themed games. Lush greenery, blue skies, scattered hills, 4-leaf clovers and the mandatory beer keg. Not to forget the typical soundtrack we associate with slots that take us to the Emerald Isle to look for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Card royals from 10 to A are at the low end of the paytable, awarding 2.5x to 5x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by beer mugs, 4-leaf clovers as well as Penny and Stumpy themselves. Hitting five on a line will get you 6x to 12.5x your stake.
A purple icon marked with a golden “W” is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular symbols. Five across the reels will pay 20x your bet. A cauldron with gold coins or let’s call it a pot of gold is the scatter symbol, appearing on reels one, three and five only.
The odd couple has prepared some reel surprises for all visitors to their Irish realm. Plus, they will offer you some extras that you can activate before the start of any spin in the base game. Hitting the Foxify button will add 50% to your default bet and increase the win multiplier values for the random feature in the base game as well as for the entire free spins round. We played the slot for hours and couldn’t come to a conclusion whether it’s worth but it can have quite an impact at times, although a long losing spell will see your balance diminish faster.
For those eager to rush their visit to the Emerald Isle, there is a Feature Buy button that will offer a shortcut to the free spins round. Clicking on the orange gift box will open the menu from where you can purchase an instant feature trigger with five free spins. It will cost you a one-time bet of 50x your default stake.
Should you in turn plan to stay a little longer with the McDoodles and wait for an organic feature trigger, there are the Stumpy Random Wilds which can trigger during any spin in the base game. A pot of gold will appear and spill the riches, speak a multiplier between x2 and x5 (higher if you activate the Foxify button) and three to eight wilds will be randomly placed on the reels. The win evaluation will be done once the dust has settled.
Hitting only two scatters on a spin will award a Rainbow Respin. All reels bar the one with the missing scatter are held while the latter spins one more time for another chance to land the third scatter. The Free Spins feature is triggered if three scatters are in view on reels one, three and five, either after the initial spin or after the respin.
The game will award five free spins with Wild Coin Collection and Progressive Multiplier features. This is the moment where it gets a little confusing so bear with us as we take you step by step through the available feature extras. The free spins round will start with an x1 multiplier and one shifting wild on the reels that stays on the screen throughout the round but may move to a new position on each spin.
You can collect up to four Wild Coins in a free spins round. Having them land on the reels will give you more shifting wilds and additional free spins. A display will appear on the left to show the progress.
The second extras during the free spins is an unlimited Progressive Multiplier. It starts at x1 and will increase when you land a Multiplier Coin on a free spin. They will be marked x1, x2 or x3 which will be added to the current multiplier. For example, if you land an x3 coin, it will be added to the default x1 to create an x4 win multiplier. Landing then an x2 coin on the next spin will be added to the x4, increasing the win multiplier to x6 and so forth.
After their highly ambitious Boom Pirates release which sports up to 10,077,696 ways to win, Foxium took a more leisurely approach with Stumpy McDoodles Lost In Time. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t just as good but as any maths nerds will tell you, a slot with just 20 lines is simply easier to design. We still enjoyed our visit to the Emerald Isle as the friendly couple kept us well entertained at all times.
The maximum win in a single spin or for an entire free spins round is rather tough to estimate as it depends on the multipliers and wilds you either get in the random feature or activate during the free spins. Looking at past releases from Foxium, we think it is safe to put it north of 2,000x the bet for the free spins feature.
