Big Red has taken video slot visuals to a whole new level. As a background is the Australian outback covered on a maroon hue. All symbols in this game are linked to the Australian outback with animals such as Crocodiles, Wild Hogs, Dingo Dogs, Eagles, Kangaroos and a Tree.

To play, activate lines (between one and five) by pushing lines buttons on your control panel, set credits to bet and press Start.
