A Distinctly French Theme with the Money Burst Reel Setup
You’ll enjoy both the sights and sounds of Paris in the Money Burst slot from WMS. There are classic symbols including the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and a bottle of perfume on the reels. The setting is on the banks of the river Seine.
Tour de Paris uses the popular Money Burst reel setup. You have 2 small reels to the left, bursting into bigger reels on the right. You can win the main bonus in two different ways. If you trigger them at the same time, there is enough big win potential to have you saying, ‘oh la la’.
Here is a summary of what you’ll find on the Tour de Paris slots:

Each of the two left side reels only has two rows of symbols. There are three more reels to the right, these expand – with 4 rows of symbols on each.
To trigger wins, you need to line up at least 3 symbols. This means the smaller reels have the most important role. When you match symbols in those, the wins can flood (or burst) out into the larger ones. If you get wilds in those first 2 reels, you could easily trigger most of the 60 win-lines from a single spin.
Getting matching symbols in all 4 spaces on the left side reels will trigger the first of the free spins game. This one is shorter – with only 5 free spins. For these, you will see giant 2x2 symbols on those smaller reels. These make wins easier to hit with either wilds or matching symbols on the right.
The other free spins game is longer, giving you 15 spins. This is triggered by getting 3 scatter symbols on the right-hand reels. Those show a lady on a bicycle. This time there are no giant symbols, though you do get a 3x multiplier on all of your wins.
It is possible to trigger both bonus games at the same time. This means 20 free spins, with 3x multipliers and giant symbols on the left-hand side. Not only will wins be easier to come by here, they will be multiplied too!
You’ll see symbols on the reels showing a grid effect with yellow lines. These are mystery reveal symbols. When the other symbols have stopped spinning, they will change to reveal a symbol at random. As they come in long stacks, this can involve turning a lot of spaces into the same symbol – if you get lucky this can include wilds.
While there are 60 win-lines in play over the Money Burst reels – you can bet from 30c and up. Adding a bet multiplier is easy, with $3 the max bet at penny denomination.
Your biggest wins will come from the famous landmarks. These are followed by symbols showing iconic aspects of French culture. You’ll find a violin, plate of gourmet food and intricate perfume bottle on the reels. Playing card suits in bold colours make up your smaller wins.
The slot logo, in vibrant red, is a wild symbol. This will replace everything except the lady on a bike bonus symbol. It does come stacked on the reels, giving you good coverage at times.
WMS have used every cliché of a romantic Paris possible in the design of this slot. It is well produced, and the detail of the symbols really shows through when you get the giant symbol free spins game.
While you spin, you’ll hear gentle accordion music. Winning combinations are met with a spider-web of lines bursting from left to right. While the symbols are not animated, Tour de Paris has a high-quality feel overall.
Money Burst is a popular reel setup from WMS, with several titles now using this. You do need to match symbols on the smaller reels to get any action. When you do, the setup makes some very big wins possible. Each of the free spins games it worth hitting alone. When you are lucky enough to trigger them at the same time – you can hit a sequence of big wins, all with a 3x multiplier.
