UK Pub Slots – AWPs (Amusement With Prize)

Before moving on to making slots, I spent a few years developing pub-style UK slots, also known as AWP’s (Amusement With Prize), or just fruit machines, for Microgaming. These typically have three reel bands, and extra reel, or in-reel features such as nudges, or holds.

Typically, there would be a bonus feature as part of the game, which was triggered from the reels game, with many different mechanics for winning.

Some were designed to look like land-based machines, and others had a more cartoon, fun theme, in keeping with the traditional pub-game style.
