Around The Town : Playing Tips

Below is everything you need to know to earn a FREE upgrade to your version of Around The Town:

Firstly, here’s the full list of required achievements…

achievementsStarting from the top:

Red 7’s Nudge and Hold : This refers to the function which is still present on modern day machines, where you are awarded nudges, and after using the nudges there is still no win but you have 2 matching symbols on the win line. If at this point you are presented with a hold, then let them all spin and you will be awarded a win which is 3 of symbols that matched. In this case you are looking to get the Jackpot. Best plan to achieve this is to refuse all wins on the reels. If if offers you 3 cherries on a nudge refuse it. If it tries to nudge hold on another win, hold something instead of spinning them. At the same time as this hold any reels that have a red 7 on the win line or above. After a short while of doing this you will get the nudges, it will hold and the achievement bell will bong.

3 Holds and In : Another function which still exists on modern-day machines. Hold 2 matching symbols 3 times and on the third hold the third matching symbol will roll in. In this case there is no stipulation as to which symbol or fruit this needs to be done on. So it should happen quite naturally. However if you are chasing it specifically you could as above refuse all other kinds of wins, this would make it more likely to offer the third hold of more valuable wins.

Blue 7’s Repeat (x3) : Anyone who had played this machine in real life will know that one of its party pieces was to occasionally repeat 2 or 3 times when you get the £3 repeater. This one is no different, this should happen naturally enough. The only thing you can really do to help it along is to play for the 3 blue 7’s instead of the Jackpot. Taking a Jackpot out would delay the process.

Board Nudge Win (Red 7’s) : Refuse all wins on the board until you are offered the Jackpot on nudges.

Board CAsh Win : Jackpot : Refuse all wins on the board until you are offered the Jackpot by getting the cash win up to the Jackpot.

Over £30 In Your Pocket : This will just happen. As in real life there are peaks and troughs when playing slot machines. Trust me you’ll get a bit of a streak going on and smash it no problem. You could to influence this refuse all wins for a while. As I have always said what goes in, a percentage of must come back out. What you need in the case is for it all to come out in one go. The longer you hold out for the more will be set to come out and the more likely you are to top £30. 101% mode is also particularly handy for this.

£250 Played Through : £250 must be inserted into the slot. Now on a £6 Jackpot slot you may think this is a lot. But you will be surprised how quickly the numbers get big.

Higher On A 5 and Survive : On a higher lower gamble you must go higher on a 5 and it come to a 6. For this to happen you need to firstly get a win on a 5, the current game needs to be able to allow you to win the gamble, and you then have a 1 in 5 chance of it being a 6. So aim for lower wins Cherries etc. And when you get a 5 go higher. Try to avoid exchanging any wins onto the board. This again will usually come quite easily.

Discover 101% mode : See here – This is the king pin, using and abusing this can make all of the above a whole lot easier.

All Feature Games Played : You must play each of the games listed to complete the achievement. The features are offered when hitting the Woolpack games room square (Shown below) on the feature board.


This should be done as and when they become available. If you see it and you’re chasing something else it may be worth just getting it out the way, and then you can crack on with the one you are targeting again.

That’s it once you have completed all of these you can follow this to complete the upgrade.
