This Rival Gaming slot is all about clocks – and if you think about its title, it’s quite obvious as a play on words. That being said, A Switch in Time is thoroughly enjoyable, featuring some intriguing graphics and a particularly interesting theme. The game was created back in 2009, and although you can tell that it has a few more miles on the clock than recent games, it still ticks along nicely and provides plenty of entertainment.

You’ll see a variety of symbols upon the slot’s reels, beginning with some glasses of wine with a decanter. Then comes the symbol of the carry case and another of a steampunk chariot. A vintage gaslight comes next, while a pair of steampunk magnifying glasses can also be seen. There’s a map and books in view as another symbol, while a pocket watch comes next. Then there’s a wind-up clock and, finally, the owner of the clock store.

This all plays out on a layout that consists of five reels and three rows in total. Additionally, Rival has made sure to add a set of 20 pay lines into A Switch in Time, yet, if you wish to bet on fewer you can reduce the active amount easily. Just use the “Select Lines” button at the bottom of the reels for this. You can then choose a coin value between 1p and 25p, and then you’re able to select how many coins you’d like to wager per line between 1 and 10. This means that the game’s maximum wager stands at £50 per spin.

Special Features

Wild

If you spot the hourglass symbol coming into view then you could find yourself approaching an easy win; this is the slot’s wild symbol, meaning that it has the possibility of standing in for all other icons upon the reels to help you with forming wins.

The wild is able to show up in any position and it has a double multiplier attached to it during base gameplay which improves to a triple multiplier when free spins come into operation. If you manage to spin five of the wild symbol into view on a winning pay line then your wager will receive a multiplier of 6,789x for your pay-out.

Scatter

You’ll need to also keep an eye out for the appearance of the woman standing by a mirror. This is the one that operates as A Switch in Time’s free spins trigger.

If you spin three of them into view in any location you will receive 12 free spins and a multiplier of 3x. Four of this symbol appearing will reward you with 45 free spins and a 6x multiplier, while five of them activate 78 free spins and a 9x multiplier at the same time. During this round, the wild symbol will also act as an expanding wild.

Bonus

There’s also the inclusion of a time machine symbol. This is the bonus addition to the game, and three or more of them appearing anywhere will activate the bonus round. Playing this round could provide you with just the boost you would like for your balance.
