The Three Stooges Slots
And why shouldn't they, since their name tells you all you want to know about it. The Three Stooges were hugely successful in their day. Curly, Moe, and Larry all feature in this pokie, and it was a big-enough hit to trigger some sequels too.
We're here to discover the original title though, so let's see if it brings us everything that we would want to see in a reliable online casino pokie.
The game is another reliable title to find within the RTG - Realtime Gaming - collection.
Try the demo to get off to a safe start
Demo pokies require no cash from you to play. You get credits installed within the game that stay there, but you can 'win' more to play with. If you realize that nothing can be taken out of the game and cashed out, you're good to go.
A classic theme based on a successful trio
The title of this pokie does little to keep the theme a secret. In fact, you can expect to find out more about the trio as you play. And of course, fans of the Stooges are going to enjoy seeing them in action here.
A good design with no obvious issues
The design is far from the most complicated one we've seen. However, you do get accurate depictions of the Stooges. It's a shame the lower-value icons are taken up by the usual card numbers and letters, though.
What are the basic features of the pokie?
There are five reels in this one, with the logo for the pokie used as a wild symbol. If we tell you the game also has three scatters, you might guess that each one is shown as a different character. This also reveals some potential to have more than one bonus feature, which we'll confirm later in our review.
As far as scatter prizes are concerned though, you need three identical ones to score a scatter prize. Finding a mixed set isn't good enough, so keep that in mind to avoid disappointment.
How many paylines are there in this pokie?
There are 25 of them - a standard quantity in many pokie games.
How much are the wagers?
It appears that each wager for each line must sit at the five-cent mark.
The paytable includes more about the rules
It's always wise to know what you are playing, and that holds true for this pokie as well. We would always suggest reviewing the paytable for any game, but with multiple scatters in action here, it makes even more sense to do so.
Are there bonus features to look forward to?
Not ones that play out on another screen, no. But you do get the chance to collect free games in multiple ways.
The Three Stooges free spins
What can the Stooges bring to the table if you find three identical characters in a single spin?
Curly Cash is the round that brings you 10 free games whenever three Curly scatters appear. All prizes are tripled in value in this round.
Meanwhile, Moe Money is triggered when three Moe icons turn up in a spin. Select one scatter to reveal the quantity of free spins you'll then play. You must then select another Moe to find a multiplier worth up to 10x to apply to prizes won.
Larry Loot is the third possibility, unlocked with three Larry scatters. These also bring you some free spins and selecting a scatter will tell you how big your multiplier will be for this round.
The RTP is unknown
No worries, though - it's common enough not to know the exact figure for RTG pokies. Plenty of people still play them, and you can figure it will be around 95% at least.
Our rating for The Three Stooges
Given the three different free spin features, we couldn't honestly rate this lower than 8.5 out of 10. We wonder how much you'll give it when you try the demo.
Plenty of prizes available to be won
If you can make it through to a round of free games, there is more potential to collect a decent multiplier to help trigger larger prizes to be paid. Mind you, even the base game has some good pokie prizes to share if you can get them.
Start with the practice option
You can't tell if this is the right pokie for you until you try it. Fortunately, the demo option gives you an opportunity to do just that.
Play the real pokie if you like it enough
With three scatters, lots of nice prizes, and an amusing theme, The Three Stooges might just prove to be a good slot to try in real mode. Just be sure you start with a budget in place and don't go over that. The game should be available in good RTG online casinos, along with others featuring these three crazy characters.
The Three Stooges look good on mobile too
They do, so even if you think they couldn't look good on a small screen, try it for size. If you do play the game like this, you can take it with you anywhere and everywhere. Entertainment right there in your pocket for every outing. How cool is that?
