Gary is going on a long, summer holiday in Miami where he will party with hotties, play drinking games and have a well-deserved break from the office. Join him on the sandy beach with Betsoft’s The Tipsy Tourist. This online video slot was released in November of 2015, and like all of Betsoft’s slots3 cinematic 3D creations, The Tipsy Tourist is available online from any Windows desktop or iOS/Windows/Android mobile device.
It’s Time for a Summer Holiday
The Tipsy Tourist opens with a 1 minute video of Gary, an over worked office drone who badly needs a vacation, who takes the next flight to Miami. This 3-row, 5- reel, 20-adjustable payline slot is framed by a beach hut. An animated Gary leans up against it, and a sandy beach with blue waves is seen behind him. As with any slots3 cinematic video slot, The Tipsy Tourist is filled with vibrant animations making it a truly entertaining experience. Add zesty beach party music to that, and The Tipsy Tourist brings the party directly to you.
The Tipsy Tourist shows credit values for Balances, Bets and Wins along the bottom of the slot screen. Cash and credit Balances are side by side. Choose a number of Credits/Line (1-5) and a number of Lines (1-20) to select a Credit Bet ranging from 1-100. Choose a Coin Value (0.02-1.00), number of Lines and Credits/Line to select a Cash Bet ranging from 2p-£100 at LeoVegas. The Tipsy Tourist’s paytable shows matching symbol values in credits. Pays change with Bet selection as the slot auto-calculates the credit win based on the number of credits bet per Line.
The Tipsy Tourist features 12 symbols reflective of the holiday in Miami theme. This online slot’s 3 special symbols include a Wild, Red Cup and Beach Ball Scatter. The Wild shows only on reels 2-5 and can replace any regular symbol turning sticky during Free Spins. The Beach Ball is a Scatter symbol that triggers Free Spins. The Red Cup triggers the Drinking Bonus Game. There are 9 regular symbols which include Gary, Blonde, Miami Plane Tickets, Sea Shell, Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10.
Gameplay is left to right only (except for Scatters) so, get 3+ matching symbols starting from reel 1 to win. The Main Game has the potential to award from 17.5x/Total Bet (all 20 Lines active) to 350x/Total Bet (1 Line active) thanks to its highest value symbol – Gary. When all 20 Lines are activated, spin 3+ of the Sea Shell – Gary, 4+ of the Queen – Gary or 5+ of anything for a single payline profit. When 1 Line is activated, spin 3+ of anything to make at least 3x the Total Bet back. That sounds great right? Keep in mind that the odds of winning are steep for only 1 active payline. Fortunately, multiple Line wins on differing paylines can be added into the Total win if players opt to bet along multiple Lines giving the Main Game the potential to award up to 35,000 credits each spin (with all 20 Lines active).
The Tipsy Tourist’s Autoplay ranges from 5 to 100 consecutive spins. Select a Coin Value, Coins/Line and #Lines, then spin to win. Game Options include switching music & sound effects on/off, setting the game to Turbo Play for faster gameplay and setting the graphics quality to low, medium, or high.
Tipsy Tourist Bonus Features
Free Spins: Get 3+ Beach Ball Scatter symbols across reels 3-5 to trigger 8 initial Free Spins with the potential to trigger more. Wilds cling to reels and stay in place for all remaining Free Spins.
Drinking Bonus Round: This feature is unique to The Tipsy Tourist. Play a coin toss drinking game with Gary for the chance to increase winnings! Call the coin correctly (cup side or tree side) to make Gary drink and get a win multiplier. Guess wrong to take a drink and get nothing.
Double-Up: We’ve seen this Feature in other Betsoft slots such as Weekend in Vegas, however, while the basic principle is the same, this Tipsy Tourist Feature is a bit different giving players the option to choose Red or Black for a face down playing card (instead of calling a coin toss). Guess correctly to double the win, or guess incorrectly to lose the whole thing. Players can play as much as they want.

Tear up the Miami Beach with Gary
The Tipsy Tourist is a fun play, and the slots3 cinematic graphics make it that much better. After giving this online slot a spin, we came away with a favorable impression overall. While the Tipsy Tourist’s Free Spins were nothing to brag about, we loved the Drinking Game Feature! Testing the demo, we won about 2.3x every 10 spins. A third of our total wins were multiple Line pays with a big Main Game win of 25x the Bet! Free Spins triggered 2x for us out of 100 spins. While there were several clingy Wilds, we only had 2 wins per 8 Free Spins with no additional spins awarded. The Red Cup Bonus Game activated once, and we guessed correctly all three times for a win of 24x our Total Bet.
