It’s often said that we Brits are obsessed with the weather, but it hasn’t been considered a theme for slots - until now. Yggdrasil Gaming has created Seasons, a slot based on the changing weather throughout the year and the effect on flora and fauna, and it’s absolutely charming. With five reels, 20 paylines, a host of bonuses and a truly immersive gameworld, Seasons is quite unique.
Spring in your step
Yggdrasil has chosen a Disneyesque theme for Seasons, with a host of woodland creatures and wildflowers adorning the reels. Everything is in keeping with the chosen theme - there are summer berries and autumn mushrooms for example - and the background shows a landscape of rolling woodland that changes as the seasons change. There’s also a lovely musical theme which has variations for the four seasons - very Vivaldi!
All 20 paylines are fixed, with the lowest coin value of 0.01 giving a minimum bet of 0.20 per spin, and the highest coin value of 5 giving a maximum bet of 100 coins per spin. The highest paytable prize is 1,000 coins for five juicy strawberries on a winning payline, and there are plenty of opportunities to boost your rewards with the four bonuses on offer.
Fall into the seasons
Each season has a unique look and feel, and its own bonus. Winter is represented by the hare, who will find a place on the reels that gives you the best possible chance of winning a reward. The spring owl rewards you with a free spin during which he’ll randomly move position. Whenever the owl stays on the reels, the free spins will continue to be triggered.
In the height of summer, you will encounter the deer, who loves to race through the meadow. When a deer skips onto the reels, they’ll expand to create a cross pattern with wilds appearing above and below and to left and right. Finally, we encounter the autumn fox, who swishes multiplier wins across the reels with her luxurious tail, up to 10x for five wilds.
Spin up three, four or five of the golden leaf scatter symbols and you’ll be rewarded with 7, 15 or 30 free spins. Whichever season you’re playing, additional wilds will be added to the reels, giving you the opportunity to create more winning combinations and land even bigger payouts.
Winter is coming
But so is spring, summer and autumn, with their bonus wild features ready to deliver golden wins across your paylines. Seasons really is a magical game - well thought through, beautifully art directed and with a clever and immersive gameworld that is quite hypnotic.
These kinds of next-generation slots are really taking gaming to another level, and Yggdrasil Gaming’s use of HTML5 optimisation means that Seasons will look every bit as beautiful on the high definition screen of your iOS and Android mobile and tablet. If you enjoy games where the theme is intrinsic to the gameplay and every piece of the design is there to enhance the whole, then you’ll love Seasons as much as we do.
