Our expert rating
Big Bonus by Inspired Gaming achieved such massive success that the developers created this follow-up, Big Spin Bonus. In the original release, you exit the bonus round once you breach a single spin win limit. In Big Spin Bonus, you are awarded up to five strikes on the maximum bonus, and you don’t exit the bonus round until you’ve exhausted your allocated strikes.
Like the original, the sequel has a fruit theme. The design features a fluid animation of the universe with falling stars. There is no soundtrack except the sound of spinning reels (this is something we feel lets this title down when comparing it to the more polished free slots on our site). The game plays out on a 6×4 grid, and there are up to 50 ways to line up the winning combinations.
Although the sequel has a lower RTP at 95%, it’s still a fun addition to the Inspired Gaming series. Big Spoon Bonus symbols include the lower-paying lemons, cherries, peaches, grapes, watermelons and oranges. These will pay 0.1x at the lowest and 8x at the highest.

The crown and the red, white and blue 7s constitute the premium bunch and will pay anywhere between 10x and 20x your bet.
The square symbol with the wild inscription on it plays the role of a wild. It replaces all the regular symbols on the reels for a chance to complete winning combinations. The bonus scatter, on the other hand, is represented by a circular icon with three yellow stars. This triggers the free spins feature.
You can choose to manually spin the reels or go for the automation option. There are 50 paylines from left to right across successive reels, starting with the column on the extreme left.
To activate this bonus, you need to land at least three scatter symbols on the reels. Each of these symbols will turn into a pick me symbol from which you select one. This will reveal the number of big spin strikes you have. They are called ‘lives’ and they vary between one and five. The free spins round commences after this pick game.
Any wild symbols landing during the bonus round remain locked on the reels for the duration of the feature. Each life is worth 20x your stake or more. This means that a life is deemed spent only if you land this amount in a single payout. The wins below this threshold may still happen during the round, but they won’t cost you a life. The Big Spin feature will only end after you have claimed all your allocated lives in maximum wins.
Comparing the 100x win limit in the original slot and the five strikes at 20x maximum in Big Spin Bonus reveals that they are similar, and both share the 100x maximum possible win. Nevertheless, the Big Spin Bonus slot provides a twist on the classic and is a fun addition to the fruit slot series from the provider.
