BetSoft have cleverly designed this slot machine to look like it’s taking place within a wooden house. The 4×4 grid of symbols takes up the majority of screen and looks like four giant rolling pins with four different sections on each. To the right of the reels is where the little mouse makes an appearance now and again. You can keep track of your credits, bet, wins and balance to the bottom left and the current progressive jackpot total to the top left.
Jackpot cauldron, mouse, mouse trap, magicians hat and wand, red 7, cheese, plums, cherries, wild and Chase the Cheese logo can be found on the reels.
Aside from the progressive jackpot, you can win up to 2,000 coins whilst playing. The coin values on offer will be worth more in cash to those playing maximum stakes, compared to low stakes players. Four of a kind of the mouse and you’ll trigger that 2,00 coins. You won’t mind getting caught in the trap because it will award 1,000 coins when four grace your payline.
You won’t find the biggest selection of slot game bonuses with the Chase the Cheese slot game, but what it does offer is great. The colourful wild logo does what you’d expect it to; it replaces all other symbols on the reels to help return winning combinations.
Spin in four of a kind of the Chase the Cheese symbols and you will trigger the bonus round. Guide the mouse through the house, collecting as many cheese as you can before you leave through the mouse hole. If you manage to pick up all the cheese within a level, you will win a bonus cash amount on top. Avoid all the holes, cats, mousetraps, toy mice spiders and bats on your way. You only have a limited time to complete the bonus round, so try to be as nimble and accurate as you can. Use your left and right arrows to move and the up arrow or spacebar to jump.
Similar Cheesy Slots
Mouse and Cat slot machine from iSoftBet is very similar to that of Chase the Cheese, in terms of its design and theme. There are 5 reels and 5 paylines allowing you to play between 0.10 and 10.00 per spin. Join the cat and mouse chase between the two characters while trying to accumulate big wins on your journey. Watch out for the smelly cheese – this can transform the game and your bankroll.
Chase the Cheese is a medium to high variance slot game that doesn’t require too much of playing to understand. We love how the wild can replace all symbols – even the Chase the Cheese bonus symbol. Wins will fall few and far between on the reels and when they do, they can keep your bankroll topped up in your search for bigger and better wins.
The bonus game was relatively easy to play, but we couldn’t help falling off the wooden shelves and into the cracks. You get three lives during the bonus round – but when you lose a life, you end the bonus game with nothing. Chase the Cheese is very entertaining, but basic at the same time.
