The path to matrimony is dotted with mishaps as you spin this raunchy rom-com of a game, all in the hope for a happy ending. Ladies and Gentlemen, we present, the Bridesmaids mobile slot.
Whilst the original movie was a surprise hit, 2011 felt far away as we opened a slot machine that, realistically, was never going to capture the originals fresh new comedy vibe.
How could it? This movie is not old enough to bring nostalgia, but not young enough to still feel new and exciting.
Honestly, as mobile slots go, it’s at best a pretty pink wedding themed game, with some interesting bonus features keeping you spinning.
The sounds are generic, with each spin giving a ‘white noise’ effect that makes you wonder if the game is broken. The bonus feature hits silently, and the dings and dongs of a win are, at best, familiar rather than exciting.
In fact, if you’ve never heard of the Bridesmaids movie, you are almost better off, as you have no expectation of what this could have been.
As you get none of the cut scenes that would make you smile at the memory of a classic comedy, this is just a pretty game with stacked wilds and 4 bonus features.
Honestly, fans of the movie are better off playing on the online slot version, which has a hint more personality from the original film.
Before you think that this sounds too much, even for a bonus game slot, don’t worry. Technically you can get 15 different prizes, but in actuality this Bridesmaids slot game basically has two features: stacked wilds and scatters.
The wilds keep your wallet from getting crushed by a hefty wedding bill, whilst the scatters trigger the wheel of fortune bonus.
We’ve written about each of the features below, but generally we’ve had some decent worthwhile results, even when we simply hit the instant cash bonus – which is 11 of the 15 possible prizes – including a jackpot of 300 times your bet.
Much like our main character Annie, you might end up getting frustrated by the Bridesmaids video slot bonus features. Sure, you only need 3 scatters to trigger it, and yes you can win 15 of those prizes…
But damn it if none of those 15 ever end up being ‘the one’. Or, by our count, the ‘two’ free spin bonus features which can give you the biggest potential wins.
It took us 3 hours, literally, to hit both features just once. God knows how long we would need to play to get them more than that.
That said, the cash prizes have given us some decent 40 to 60 times our bet, and in the two click me bonuses we’ve come close to 100 times our bet to know it’s within reach.
So as long as it’s the cash, and not the thrill of the free spins, that draw you to this Microgaming slot machine, then Bridesmaids is actually good fun.
But mostly because of those double symbols and stacked wilds during the base game, which give you sweet tantalising moments, as you walk away with more than just a slice of wedding cake.

Wild Symbols: The Bridesmaids slot logo is the wild symbol and comes stacked throughout the game, on all reel. It replaces all symbols except the scatter cupcake.
Scatters and The Wheel Of Fortune: Get 3 or more scatter cupcake symbols anywhere on the five reels and you'll be sent to a second screen bonus where you spin a wheel of fortune.
First you pick from four cupcakes that can give you:
You then spin the wheel, which has 11 cash prizes (including a jackpot) and the chance to trigger any of the following 4 bonus features:
There's not doubt that the flying high free spins are the ones that can be the most rewarding - though we've had more satisfying results with magic moments.
This is no Game of Thrones slot game, which for it's simplicity, kept the same thrill of it's original theme.
But whilst this 40 paylines game doesn't deliver in theme, it does in sheer unpredictability in the bonus feature, and stacked symbols and wilds that keeps your game play lively.
Just don't hold your breath for the free spins and you'll have a far more fun time in this Bridesmaid mobile slot.
