Britain’s adult comic book characters are spinning away in this Progressive Jackpot and slightly rude mobile slot.
Viz humour is an acquired taste. If you’ve never heard of this comic, chances are you didn’t grow up in the 80s or 90s as a teenage boy in Great Britain. The creator of the comic is famously known as saying that “We pride ourselves on the fact that you’re no cleverer when you’ve read Viz. You might have had a few laughs, but you’ve not learnt anything“. Think fart jokes rather than Monty Python.
And just like the Viz comic, this mobile slot is not particularly clever and particularly high hitting – with a Return to Player rate of 95.53%, this high volatility slot takes patience. So you have to be a fan of the simple graphics and the quirky characters (Two Fat Slags, Suicide Sid, Terry Fuckwit) to really fall in love with this slot. We were particularly disappointed with the sound effects. Considering the theme, a few comical sounds and some fun music would have made Viz jump up a little higher on our list.
That said, it plays incredibly well on both mobile and tablet, and the features, when they hit, are decent, with the potential for big wins – such as 200 Free Spins and 500x Multiplier. A simple click and pick game is made more fun by the characters themselves, and a ‘Deal or No Deal‘ free spin round brings a little excitement, especially as the maximum amount you could win is the aforementioned 200 free spins. Exciting indeed.
The ‘Wheel of Fartune’ bonus feature, equally, made us snigger when we hit it, proving there’s a 12 year old inside all of us (and a happy adult who enjoys multipliers on the outside). Sid’s “Sexpot Jackpot” (pun intended) also helps bring this slot back into our zone of interest, as one of the few progressive jackpots available for mobile play.

Roger Mellie Free Spin Bonus: 3 or more Roger Mellie bonus symbols send you to a mini-game, similar to the TV game 'Deal or no Deal'. You pick a TV (which has a mystery free spin amount) and other TVs are removed, revealing the amount of free spins. In between each 'removal' of free spins amount, you'll be given an offer of free spins, which average the amount of free spins left on the board.
You can either take the offer, or keep removing boxes until the only box left is the one you've picked at the start. It sounds more complicated than what it actually is. Best of all, there is a potential 200 free spins up for grabs. Yeap. 200.
Free Spins & the Sexpot Jackpot: You can only hit the progressive jackpot during the free spins feature by getting five 'Sid' icons on an active payline. You do need to be staking at least £1 a spin to qualify and play in real play of course.
Unlike other progressive jackpots that start at the same level for all players, this one consists of a fixed minimum amount that increases when a player makes a bet in the game. When the Jackpot is won, it is reset to the initial 'seed' amount and begins to rise again.
Usual Suspects Bonus: Get three or more 'usual suspect' icons and you get a charming little pick and choose game. Each character in the line up is holding a multiplier card that will multiply your total stake and get you a little extra in your pocket. You can get a pretty incredibly 500x multiplier as a maximum.
Wheel of Fartune Bonus: 3 or more FARTPANTS symbols anywhere on the reels and you'll enter the WHEEL OF FARTUNE bonus game. A wheel will spin for each of the fartpants symbols on view and stop on a multiplier. Each wheel is then added together to make a final multiplier that will be multiplied to your amount stacked and give you winnings. The maximum multiplier you can get from this feature is 100x.
We always find it hard to grade slots, as so much of the game experience is down to personal taste. We've never found it harder than for this one. We think that for the same reasons some will love the Viz mobile slot, others will hate it. So we've given it four stars due to the decent jackpot, the good mobile game play and the hard hitting features when they show up. However:
Remove 1 star if: You've never heard of the Viz, you don't think whoopy cushions are the height of comedic amusements and the RTP rate of 95.53% is too low to tempt you. Patience you have not. Also the sounds suck.
Add 1 star if: You've always loved the Viz, and like comic books, you are happy to switch off that brain and watch the reels spin. After all, high volatility means you can sit and wait until that magical time when you'll get 200 free spins and the sexpot jackpot will pop. *snigger*
We are divided here at Lucky Mobile Slots (one of us was never a 12 year old boy for one), but we recognised that this is one of the top five most played slots at Sky Vegas for a reason. We think you should head over there now and see for yourself.Play Now at Sky Vegas »
