If you love your generic, weirdly designed display menus on Pro Evolution Soccer 4, then you’re going to absolutely love Bicicleta!
Where To Play
Oh man. As a football fan, I find nothing more annoying than an image of a generic, black and white football. It just screams, “I have no idea about football, but look, I know what a football looks like!!” But, no, you don’t, because when was the last time you actually saw a football which looked like that? Exactly, never.
And even trying to see past that god-awful football, all I see is generic, shit faces which have all the personality of a small rock in the middle of a big, fuck-off field.
So yeah, visuals, not good. But the animations and the transitions are rather decent, and the wins are potentially huge too.
The symbols are all different coloured ‘footballers’ with a red one, a purple one, a green one, and a blue one all featuring, plus hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades.
The best symbol to hit is the red footballer who pays out 250/1 should you hit five in a row. The bonus round is triggered by hitting three free spin icons on any of the five reels.
The bonus round on Bicicleta just consists of free spins. If you hit three symbols you get 8 free spins, if you hit four symbols you get 16 free spins, if you hit 5 symbols you get 24 free spins.
You can’t bet on different lines on here, but you can bet between 25p and £100 per spin. The house edge though is a decent 3.7%.
There is an autoplay feature which comes with a number of autostop options.
Bicicleta, then. Any idea what that means? It’s actually what they call a bicycle kick in the Portuguese world, but unfortunately, this game very much fails to live up to the elegance and pure beauty of a perfectly executed bicycle kick.
Bicicleta visually is generic, it lacks originality, it’s plain, and it’s very, very boring. In fact, the game in general is very, very boring. It doesn’t even have an exciting bonus round to save it, all the bonus consists of is free spins.
