Play The Big Bopper

It’s time to slip on your dancing shoes and hit the floor, because this hip-swinging, toe-tapping new slot from the consummate professionals at Real Time Gaming features all of the good times and classic tacks from The Big Bopper himself. For the uninitiated, The Big Bopper was an American musician, songwriter and disc jockey with a trademark look, style, voice and personality that propelled him to early rock and roll success. In the slot that’s named in his honor, rock and roll goes hand-in-hand with bankroll-boosting wins.

All ways pay in this exciting six reel slot, and, with a top prize of 30,000 times your bet per way, that can amount to some serious winnings. Keep an eye out for those scattered BOPPER symbols, because when they occur across the reels, you’ll trigger one of The Big Bopper’s three exciting features. In the ‘Big Bopper Instant Win’ feature, you’ll keep winning as long as the big guy keeps singing for a chance at up to 250 times your bet. In the ‘Chantilly Lace Free Games’, the Bopper’s sweet voice can help you win up to 45 free games with 10 times the prizes. Finally, there’s the ‘White Lightnin’ Free Games’, which can add some huge wins. Oh baby, that’s what I like!

How to play

You won’t need a big rockabilly look or exuberant personality to succeed at The Big Bopper. This game features Real Time Gaming’s notably intuitive control scheme, so everyone can have a great time. To start, just take your pick between the downloadable and instant play versions of the slot. When that’s done, use the arrow controls to choose your wager. Since all ways pay, you’ll only need to choose how much you’d like to wager per spin to get started. When you’re satisfied with your bet, just click the big spin button to get the game started. Enjoy the classic tracks and fun footage!

Game Rules

The most important rule to keep in mind in The Big Bopper is that the scattered ‘BOPPER’ symbols are your ticket to free games and multiplied winnings. When the big guy’s moniker is displayed across your screen, you can celebrate, because one of three lucrative features is just about to begin. The top award for any spin is 30,000 times your bet per way, so these features can get seriously generous.


There’s no strategy to slots. They’re powered by random number generators that make determining patterns fundamentally impossible. While this may seem like a negative, it’s actually a good thing. Instead of worrying about developing a strategy, you’ll be free to kick back and enjoy the tunes when spinning the reels of The Big Bopper. With a little luck, you’ll be relishing the game’s exciting features and reminiscing with classic footage in no time flat.


As with all slots, the best way to win with The Big Bopper is to make each spin count. Evaluate your bankroll to determine the maximum bet per spin you’re willing to wager. Winning in short bursts is much more likely than a prolonged hot streak, and maximizing your wagers on every spin is the best way to capitalize on your wins. Plus, all features are played at the bet of the triggering spin.


The Big Bopper slot is named after The Big Bopper musician. Jiles Perry Richardson, Jr. leveraged a big rockabilly look, style, voice and personality to rise to stardom in the early days of rock and roll. For five years from 1954-1959, he played a key role in the evolution of American music. In 1959, The Big Bopper died in a plane crash alongside fellow musicians Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens. The event is often referred to as ‘The Day the Music Died’, as it is called in Don McLean’s 1971 song ‘American Pie’. The Big Bopper slot takes you back in time with classic tracks and fun footage from Richardson’s career.
