The Van Gogh from Relax Gaming theme
Based on the work of one of the world’s most famous artists, this slot includes symbols that will seem very familiar to many players. Born in 1853, Van Gogh was a Dutch painter who created some of the most recognisable paintings known to this day including The Starry Night, Sunflowers, Skull of a Skeleton with a Burning Cigarette, Almond Blossoms and his many self-portraits. He suffered greatly with depression, and on one occasion, he cut part of his ear off, an incident that inspired his painting, Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear. He succumbed to his mental health problems in 1890 by taking his own life.
It was only after his death that Van Gogh’s work was taken seriously, and he later became known as one of the most revered and respected artists of all time.
How Van Gogh from Relax Gaming looks
The Van Gogh slot looks as though it has been taken straight from one of his paintings, with his distinct brush strokes featuring throughout. The slot title has been plucked from his work, with his signature sitting at the top of the reels. The background is of his painting, Bedroom in Arles, which includes a bedroom setting with blue walls and a chair positioned directly next to the bed.
The five reels set on a rough canvas material include several of Van Gogh’s paintings, plus the classic playing card symbols, which also look as though they have been painted by the famous artist. Players may recognise Still Life with Basket and Six Oranges, Apples, Citrus Fruit, Irises in a Vase and Sunflowers as the main symbols on the reels. There are no gimmicks here - just pieces of art that speak for themselves. To the side of the reels is an artist’s palette complete with blobs of paint and paintbrushes of different sizes, insinuating that the reels are a work of art, too.
How to play Van Gogh
All of the playing options are situated at the bottom of the reels to avoid taking anything away from the artwork that features in the background and on the reels themselves. Right in the middle, you will find the spin button. This is larger than the other symbols, telling you exactly where you need to go to get things started. Before you do this, however, you should look at the other playing options.
The 20 paylines are fixed, but players can still adjust the amount spent per spin. This can be done by using the plus and minus symbols in the Bet section, where you can choose to stake a minimum of 0.10 or up to a maximum of 100.00 per spin.
The other options below the reels allow players to use autospin, which means they can set the reels to spin for a predetermined number of times. You can choose from between 10 and 500 automatic spins, while the advanced option also allows you to set win and loss limits to help you keep track of your playing habits. There is also a turbo option, which lets the reels spin at double quick speed so you don’t have to wait around for your wins to land.
To the left side, players can turn off the quaint soundtrack and click on the paytable to find out more about the game.
The Van Gogh paytable
All of the information you need to play this slot is included in the paytable option on one screen, and you can scroll down to view everything. It is not the most convenient way to find the information ¬- many other slots opt to use a separate screen with different information included - but it is a small niggle for this otherwise entertaining slot.
Right at the top, players will see the features that this slot has to offer. If you scroll down, you will see the value of each of the symbols that appear on the reels. The lowest payers are the painted playing card symbols, with the J and Q paying out 10, 20 and 50 times your stake when you land three, four or five matching symbols. The K and A pay out a little more, with 20, 40 and 100 times being given.
Van Gogh’s paintings are the main symbols, with each paying out more than the last. Citrus Fruit pays out a 40, 80 and 200 stake multiplier, while Still Life with Basket and Six Oranges give you 50, 125 and 500 for three, four and five of a kind. Apples is next up the paytable with 60, 150 and 600 on offer, and Irises in a Vase will reward you with 80, 200 and 800 times your stake. The highest-paying symbol is arguably Van Gogh’s most famous painting, Sunflowers, which pays out a 100, 250 and 1000 multiplier when you find three, four and five on the reels.
Features of Van Gogh (Relax Gaming)
There are two additional symbols on the reels that help players increase their credit balance even more. The first is the Brush Strokes Wild symbol, which is represented by one of Van Gogh’s self-portraits. This will substitute for other symbols, minus the bonus, to create a winning combination on the reels.
The second special symbol is the paint palette Bonus symbol, which paves the way to trigger a free spins feature. If you manage to land three or more of these bonus symbols, you will receive free spins that involve Colour Splash features that you have collected - we’ll have more on those in a minute. You can also receive free spins if you manage to collect the full amount of Colour Splash symbols.
The paint palette that sits to the side of the reels has another purpose beyond looking pretty. When the reels spin, you may notice a splash of paint on one of the symbols, which will then transfer to the corresponding colour on the palette. These form part of the Colour Splash Collects feature and are extra features that will be added to the free spins feature. Depending on the colours you collect, you could win:
- Purple - One free spin, which can be increased up to 15 if you collect 11 purple splashes.
- Orange - A 1x multiplier will be added on the next free spins feature, with up to 7x multiplier available if you collect six orange splashes.
- Green - One Wild will be added in free spins, with up to five available to collect.
- Blue - One low-paying symbol will be removed, with the J, Q, K and A being removed if you collect 4 blue splashes.
