Chimney Stacks from Bally is a pretty pedestrian, yet oddly addictive kind of slot that you find yourself playing for quite awhile and then asking why you found yourself playing it for that long. We're not entirely sure what the appeal here is all about, but it does reveal that this game perhaps has some untapped potential that it's not living up to. Give this 40-payline, 5 reel game a try and you might just see what we're talking about.
Chimney Stacks information
There's just something about this game that we cannot put our fingers on. Let's start with a description of the gameplay. It is rather simple, unspectacular, and yet oddly addictive. We're not sure why or how, but it is. There are two bonus features on hand: free spins and a stacked wild. The former is activated by having scatters appear on the first, third, and fifth reels during the same spin. This awards you 10 free games during which all wins benefit from a 4x multiplier. Meanwhile, the latter can appear during said free spins in addition to four left-most reels on screen.
Moving to the presentation, you will see that Chimney Stacks employs some kind of city/Monopoly theme that's hard to pinpoint and even harder to resist. Yes, we're not sure what it is about symbols like cityscapes, jewels, and weathervanes but there's just something about it. Meanwhile, you will notice that the graphics, effects, and music are all fairly average at best. It's a shame that the music only makes rare appearances, for they are great when it does.
How to play Chimney Stacks
Part of Chimney Stacks' mysterious allure is the straightforward nature of playing this game. With the paylines set at 40 and the number of credits per payline fixed as well, all you need to do here is set the bet denomination and then spin the reels.
