Mid-Life Crisis

Mid-life crisis is all about going on a wild spending spree. Some people opt for sports cars or hot tubs or motorcycles, others splurge on jewelry. And if you want a real taste of what it’s like, a mid-life crisis-themed online video slot will give you a taste.

Just when we’d thought Real Time Gaming had run the gamut of video slot topics, they come up with something like this. It’s off-the-cuff, it’s wacky, but for some reason, it had us coming back for more.

Ease into your crisis with this game, which offers you a massive payout and graphics that bring a little humor to a situation. Use the video slots to take your mind off your troubles for a while and you can make some extra scratch as well to spend on some nice toys in your eventual mid-life crisis.

Review

Mid-Life Crisis has five reels and nine paylines to work but the real highlight here is the system-wide progressive. That’s right, you can win some nice pots from time to time with the regular rules of the game but we kept our eye clearly focused on the progressive , which starts at $25,000 and goes all the way up to a whopping $100,000. We’d probably experience our own personal crisis if we hit the big one.

To get the big win, you’ll have to be betting the max per line to be eligible. That means a total of 45 coins, which is $2.25 since the only denomination for this game is $0.25. To get the win, all you have to do is line up the five sports car symbols on the payline – that’s not so bad, is it?

There are a couple of bonus rounds available too. The first is if you hit three mid-life crisis symbols – those being the bald guy, the toupee and the gold chain – anywhere on the screen, you get paid a big scatter bonus. A full-packaged mid-life man will stand up and give you some bonus credits.

The second feature is triggered when three hot ladies are scattered on the reels. That opens up the Pick Your Poison Bonus game where you get to choose between an adventure or Krazy Al’s Miracle Youth Tonic. Both give you credits and the animations are fun in both cases.

Overall, the characters in this game are quite fun. Everything fits the theme as you’ll see middle-aged men, sexy ladies, sports cars, motorcycles and other things that signify a mid-life crisis. It’s all quite humorous and we’d expect the game will bring out a few chuckles of you too. RTG definitely has another hit on their hands.

Don’t let a crisis get you down. Make a splash with Mid-Life Crisis Progressive and you can wipe away the blues quickly. If not, take the big winnings from this game (since there are many ways to win big money) and go buy yourself something nice.
