Slot machines might be a lot of fun but generally, you need to actually be sitting in front of one to have any real fun with it. And many of the slot machine smartphone apps only constitute you betting and spinning reels. Who really cares if you hit three 7’s in a row or not? And while the Backflip Slots app for the iPod Touch certainly won’t make you rich or spit out real money, it does put a new twist on slot machines that makes playing it in the palm of your hand much more fun.
That twist is all of the little extra characters, or ‘buddies’ as they’re called in the app, that come alive and help improve your odds. The more times you hit a jackpot or lucky numbers, the more buddies you get. And the more buddies you get, the better your chances are of winning. Plus, you’ll get a kick out of it when you see some of the most recognizable characters from different apps such as Paper Toss, NinJump, Ragdoll Blaster, and Graffiti Ball, to name just a few. And there are so many bonuses that they’re bound to keep you on your toes.
With just a single tap you’ll also be able to wager on multiple lines or single lines, and in many different increments, so you can always know that you can bet an amount that you’ll feel comfortable with. And there are also tons of cool background sounds from other Backflip games and the images are really cool too. What users seem to love most about this app is that there are no glitches, which is something that is rare to find in apps these days. And one of the best things about this apps is that it’s completely free – and you can download it from iTunes here.
