Imagine a cheesy Vegas magician with S&M bondage issues and you’re close to what this Zipper mobile slot theme is all about.
Not many of you will remember the Doctor Love slot by NextGen, but it seems like Merkur Gaming has taken a leaf out of the cutesy theme and added a few kinky twists.
The magician could be the doctor’s cousin, this time sitting on a 5×3 reel with 10 paylines and 9 symbols in total.
The high paying ones are the magician, the book of spells, the scatter top hat and the crystal ball wild. Then it’s the usual Ace to 9 generic low paying symbols.
The good news is that the free spins are fairly easy to catch; at least once in 100 spins or so.
The weird news is that when that happens, the reels ‘unzip’ to reveal extra wilds added to the spinning reels – usually around 15.
What has this got to do with the theme? We have absolutely no idea. This Zipper game seems to be a little confused as to the mood it’s trying to set.
But you can’t deny that it’s a little exciting watching those extra wilds show up on screen.
During the Zipper free spin bonus games, you can easily get more free spins and even more wilds. So many more, in fact, that we managed to get a win of over 130 times our bet over 12 spins with over 60 wilds spinning on screen.
But one good trick does not a good show make, and for every random big win, you get 30 free spin rounds where you don’t see much more than 10x your bet – even Smart Restart slot has better top wins with only 5 paylines.
Honestly? This is an… ok Merkur game?
But with no big wins, a pretty odd and badly done theme, and some slow base game spins, we doubt we’ll be coming back this 10 payline slot machine any time soon.

Wilds: The Crystal ball is the wild symbol and will substitute for all other symbols on an active payline, except for the scatter.
Scatter and Free Spins: The top hat is the scatter symbol and 3, 4 or 5 anywhere on the reels will trigger a starting 6, 12, or 24 free spins.
We say 'starting' because you will trigger more as one scatter hat during the bonus game will give you an extra spin, and two scatters will give you a further 3 spins.
When you start you usually get around 15 extra wilds on screen, and then for every scatters you find thereof, an extra 5 wilds will be added on top of the re-trigger of free spins.
The most we've collected is about 60 wilds and around 15 free spins.
Whilst we know Merkur studios are never about the theme, this Zipper video slot seems lazier than usual.
It's barely got a theme, just a cheesy magician and some zippers unlocking extra wilds during the free spins.
A free spin bonus round that saves this mobile casino game from complete oblivion, as it triggers often and re-triggers even more.
But with a maximum bet of only 4, small wins, and little action during the base game, we doubt anyone will find much awe and wonder here.
Try the Book of Ra Magic slot instead, we promise it's got more wins in any one of those 10 paylines.
Or you can play Zipper at one of these mobile casinos:
