Betty Bonkers Pokie Review


Betty Bonkers, the latest online pokie from Quickspin, is set on the Las Vegas Strip during the early 1960s. It features a beautiful blonde in a red dress named Betty. Apparently, she’s ready to go bonkers (according to the official site), although nothing ever comes of it.

The game offers three reels and five paylines, and it’s available for both mobile and PC gamblers. The player is able to trigger a number of bonus rounds, and there’s a top prize worth 10,000x the wager.

Betting Range

Players have several wagers to choose from, with an overall range from $0.01 to $100. If you go with the default bet, you’ll wind up risking $1 per spin.

Thanks to the multitude of betting options, Betty Bonkers can be enjoyed by players of both high and low bankrolls. Most, however, will fall somewhere in the middle.


Quickspin ranks the volatility of their pokies on a scale from one to five, with five being the highest. As it turns out, Betty Bonkers has a rating of five.

This means that winning spins don’t occur as often. When they do, however, they’ll usually offer larger payouts than on low volatility games.

If you’re going to play a poker machine of this kind, you’ll need plenty of patience. It’s also helpful to have a solid bankroll that can withstand long stretches of losing.

Adjustable RTP

This pokie has three RTP levels, allowing the host casino to choose their preference. These levels include 87.15%, 94.19% and 96.10%.

The highest RTP is acceptable. In fact, it’s comparable to the highest average on most online poker machines.

If you wind up with the 94.19% version, you’ll be playing at about 2% below normal. This is still acceptable, and all but the most hardcore gamblers will never even notice.

Finally, there’s the lacklustre 87.15%. This percentage is far below most Internet pokies, although some land-based games still fall into this range.

Unfortunately, the majority of online casinos are unlikely to reveal which RTP setting they’re using.

Betty Bonkers Paytable

The following are the reel symbols and their possible payouts. I’m using a sample wager of $30 per spin, although this can be adjusted to meet your needs as a player.

  • Lemon – Pays $30 for three matches.
  • Plum – Pays $60 for three matches.
  • Cherry – Pays $90 for three matches.
  • Bell – Pays $150 for three matches.
  • Bar – Pays $240 for three matches.
  • Seven – Pays $450 for three matches.
  • Wild – Pays $900 for three matches. Also substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus scatter.
  • Bonus – Two scatters trigger Betty’s Menu. Three scatters trigger Mega Free Spins with 20 spins guaranteed.

Betty’s Menu

There are two ways to activate this bonus feature. First, you can land two Bonus scatters at the same time during the base game. Second, you can win on the Bonkers Line during the Free Spins mode.

Located just above the reels, the menu has a variety of symbols with different functions. During the base game, these include:

  • The two lowest symbols are removed prior to a spin.
  • One or two wilds are added during the base game.
  • Adds a 3x to 5x multiplier.
  • Two adjacent reels are linked.
  • Three jackpots are available during the base game (10x, 100x and 1,000x).
  • Awards six, nine or 12 free spins.

If activated during the Free Spins phase, the possible menu items include the following:

  • The four lowest symbols are removed.
  • Three or four wilds are added during Free Spins.
  • Adds a 6x to 10x multiplier.
  • All reels are linked.
  • Jackpots increase with every Bonkers Line win (up to a max of 10,000x, 1,000x and 100x).
  • Awards +1 Feature, +1 Free Spin and +1 Bonkers Multiplier.

Probability of Winning

Thanks to the Betty Bonkers game sheet, here are the chances of winning the top jackpots:

  • Big Win – worth 15x wager – hits once every 174 spins.
  • Super Win – worth 40x wager – hits once every 388 spins.
  • Mega Win – worth 70x wager – hits once every 567 spins.
  • Epic Win – worth 100x wager – hits once every 757 spins.

Bonkers Line

During the Free Spins bonus, you’ll notice a red line running from left to right on the middle of the reels. This is known as the Bonkers Line.

Whenever you get a win on the Bonkers Line, two things happen:

  • The Bonkers Line multiplier increases (up to a max of 10x).
  • Betty’s Menu activates and the game selects one feature at random.

Buying the Bonus

If you don’t want to wait around for the bonus games, you can choose to instantly trigger one. This is accomplished by paying one of the following:

  • 20x the Player’s Wager – Triggers the Betty’s Menu feature.
  • 300x the Player’s Wager – Triggers the Mega Free Spins feature.

Final Thoughts

There are three major selling points for this game. First, it has some impressive payouts. Second, there are a number of bonus features to look forward to. Finally, the overall experience is simplistic and can be enjoyed by gamblers of all experience levels.

On the downside, the menu bonus concept can take a little getting used to. There’s also the matter of the adjustable RTP levels, which is something that I’ve always been opposed to.

While it’s not without its flaws, Betty Bonkers remains a decent pokie that’s worth a look. If you’re a fan of Vegas-style machines, then I suggest moving it up several spots on your list.
