If you enjoy slots and love being part of a Facebook community then Trophy Slots from NYX Social Gaming may be just for you. This game combines the fun of selected slot games with contests, community and tournaments. Best of all it's free to play and can offer hours of fun.
How To Join
You can join Trophy Slots via Facebook. Simply follow the link and agree to add the game to your profile. Once in the app you'll be taken to the lobby where you'll find various slots that you can play. These include Medusa II, Extra Cash, Genie Wild, Teddy Bears, Mouse Tales and Merlins Millions. As a rookie player you'll find that you can only access a few games - you gain access to more as you earn achievements.
Achievements are picked up by winning games, spinning and general play. A level-up meter at the top of the lobby gives you an indicator of how far away or close you are from moving up another level. Next to the level-up meter there's an indicator of how many of the 74 trophies and 312 badges that can be picked up by playing Trophy Slots.
Pick Up Coins & Achievements
Rookie players are given a virtual $1000 to play on registration. That may sound like a lot but each game costs one virtual dollar a line (so $25 to $50 a spin depending on the number of paylines). You also seem to be restricted to playing $1 a line - at least at the start. However we did find it quite hard to offload our coins as Trophy Slots do like to give you extra for early achievements such as respins or five in a row.
The aim of Trophy Slots is fun and to accumulate as many points (or virtual dollars) as you can. Each spin earns you league points and if you finish in the top ten you'll pick up a prize. It's not clear what the prize is but we suspect that it will be either virtual gifts or extra coins. If you want to check your current standing then click on the leaderboard tab at the top of the lobby page.
Getting Extra Coins
Like all social games there is the opportunity to spend money. You can purchase from 25,000 coins right up to 16million. The more coins you buy the higher the bonus too. For example for $1 you can collect 25,000 coins plus a 200% bonus making 75,000! However purchase 16million at $150 and you get a 500% bonus meaning you'd have a whopping 96million coins at your disposal. That's a lot of spins!!
You can pick up extra coins by winning at slots, making achievements, purchases, by asking for gifts or inviting friends. If you can convince five mates to join you on Trophy Slots then you'll be rewarded. For more free coins you may also want to check out the community page on Facebook as there are regular promos posted there where you can boost your balance.
We enjoyed our visit to Trophy Slots and it's nice to give the games a spin without the fear of spending a fortune. How long we can play for free without buying extra coins is unclear though! It should be noted that although free to play - or at worst low cost - slots can still be addictive even within a Facebook app or via mobile. Our feeling is that this Facebook game may appeal more to players in countries where online gaming is restricted than those where slots are available on bingo and casinos.
