A big bet game from WMS, the Aftershock Frenzy mobile slot is a decent, fast paced, classic 3 reeler.
If you are not familiar with WMS slots with big bet options, just know this; it basically means that if you are willing to bet a little more, you get special features.
The way it works is that you can choose to spin 5 spins for the total cost of $10 upwards (or $2 a spin if you want to think of it another way.)
And whilst this can sometimes go wrong if the game needs it just to be playable like with the Barkin’ Mad slot, the really good ones tend to give you enough wins to be worth the big bet option, like the Monopoly Big Event slot which has a 99% return to player rate.
What we hadn’t found was a game that was fun, whether you choose to play with or without the big bets.
Here’s what the big bet option buys you: a bigger top win.
To understand, you have to know that there are three wilds in this mobile slot game, that also pay out as scatters; the Triple Aftershock, the Double Aftershock, and the wild symbol.
With the big bet, you can create wins of up to 2,250 and 10,000 times your line bet with three triple aftershock symbols. Without it, your top win is 1,000 times your line bet.
Which means that many of you will be tempted to up your budget. And if you can bet $2 a spin or more on each spin, great. But if you can’t don’t walk away from this Aftershock Frenzy slot game, just yet.
The thing is, what makes this mobile game special is the Aftershock Frenzy feature, which means that at any point, the music goes techno, and you are guaranteed anything up to 7 spins with guaranteed wins.
And if you get any of the aftershock symbols (double or triple) show up on any of the three reels, it then remains sticky whilst this frenzy of wins begins.
We didn’t think we’d say it, but we much prefer this WMS game over the other big bet classic slot Black Magic Fruits. And we liked that one very much.
It gets the heart racing, and smiling, as the single bonus feature brings an exciting energy, and you know you’re in for some wins, regardless of how much you bet.

The Wilds: You've got three wild symbols. The normal wild that replaces all other symbols except the double and triple after shock symbol.
The double aftershock symbol that appears only on reel 1 and 3 if the big bet option isn't activated. It replaces all other symbols except triple aftershock and wild.
The triple aftershock symbol that appears only on reel 2 if big bet option isn't activated. It replaces all other symbols except wild and double aftershock.
Each pay as a scatter when they show up on screen, except the wild, which is just wild.
The Aftershock Frenzy Free Spins Feature: After any wagered spin, you could randomly go into 'frenzy' mode. Here you can win up to 7 free spins, where every win is guaranteed. Mostly you'll get maybe 3 or 4.
If either the double or triple aftershock symbols show up, they become 'stuck' on their reel, and will nudge up or down the paylines, providing you with more chances at bigger winning combinations, and instant cash.
The Big Bet Option: Here you play 5 spins, back to back, on a set amount. It starts at 10 for 5, all the way to 200 for 5.
During the big bet spins, the double aftershock symbols on reels 1 and 3 become triple aftershock symbols. Meaning you now have a chance to get 3 triple aftershock symbols in a row, and win the big bucks.
The return to player rate is generally more generous with the big bet at 97% over 95.01% if you don't use it.
A classic slot game with 7s and bars that is elevated by a great feature that provides you with random guaranteed wins and extra wilds.
The Aftershock Frenzy mobile slot actually works just as well without using the big bet option, but there's no doubt that you can win a whole load more if you do.
If you love the energy of this game, but would prefer a video slot, we'd also recommend you check out Spin Party by Play'n GO.
