Vera & John is popular with Australian online casino players because it offers the best games from the leading software providers. One recent addition is Bicicletas from Yggdrasil Gaming. This football themed online pokie has been released to coincide with Euro 2016. Bicicletas refers to the bicycle kick invented in South Africa and made famous by the football legend Pele.
Bicicletas is a 5×4 video pokie game with 25 paylines, all of which are enabled by default. Normally these would be too few paylines for an online pokie with four rows of symbols, but this is made up for by some exciting and rewarding features. The WILD logo is the wild symbol. The high paying symbols are four football players and the low paying symbols are the playing card suit icons. All these symbols appear stacked on the reels and start paying from three-of-a-kind combinations. The coin value and line bet can be varied from AU$0.01 to AU$4.00. This gives a maximum total bet of AU$100. Bicicletas is an online pokie for high rollers who are willing to wait for the big returns. The average return to player is given as 96.3%.
The trophy symbol can land only on the fifth reel. In the base game the trophy awards from 8 to 12 free spins or up to 1000 coins. In the Free Spins mode, the trophy awards additional 2 to 4 free spins, or up to 1000 coins or the Wild Reel feature. This changes all symbols on a randomly chosen reel from 1 to 4 into sticky wilds. Sticky wilds are those that will remain fixed through the remainder of the free spins.
Three or more scattered football symbols in any base game spin trigger the Free Spins mode. Three scatter symbols in the triggering spin will award 8 free spins, four symbols will award 16 free spins and five symbols will award 24 free spins. In this mode any football player may try to score a goal when he lands on the reels. If the player manages to score it transforms into a sticky wild symbol. The shoot at goal sequence happens before the wins are paid out for the spin. The free spins cannot be retriggered.
Vera & John online casino offers an attractive welcome bonus to new players. It is a 100% bonus on the first deposit up to AU$100. The online casino is licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority.
