The Best Coffee in Town
As mentioned above, French Twist is playing the French card right from the start by sending players to a popular café, probably not too far from the Champs Elysées. The reels are placed on top of a newspaper, full of coffee stains and bread crumbs. The pastel colours used on the reels, coupled with the so typically French background music give French Twist a very cute atmosphere.
French Twist is one of these simple yet endearing slot games that manage to make an impression. The game is in no way the most impressive we have seen in terms of graphics, nor is it the most original. But we still couldn’t seem to resist the idea of enjoying a nice cup of coffee with a croissant while watching the people walk by.
More Options Than Expected
French Twist is played on 5 reels with only 10 paylines available. That being said, the betting range still stretches from 0.30 to 30.00 credits per turn, which could be more than enough to satisfy most players out there. Use the separate settings menu on the left side to adjust your settings, and activate the autoplay mode if you wish to stick to the same wager for a little while. You still have the possibility to gamble each reward for a chance to double it instantly after a win.
French Twist is fairly average in terms of variance, making you as likely to score a small or a very large cash prize every time you place a bet. It will be up to you to adjust your settings and take a few risks to maximise your chances to end up with the jackpot in your pocket. The basic paytable contains some card icons as well as bread, wine, cheese, croissants, coffee and Champagne, with a top prize set at 400 times your current wager – which is within your reach, in our experience.
Twice as Many Free Spins
The fun doesn’t just stop here, as French Twist has a few more symbols to reveal. The Eiffel Tower is the obvious wild card of the game, able to substitute for the icons listed before. Wild combinations are rare but you do have a chance to land a x2500 big win thanks to them, so keep the reels spinning and your fingers crossed.
The macarons are the scatter symbols, able to award up to 1,000 times your line bet regardless of their configuration when they land on the reels. 3 or more macarons in view also initiate the French Twist free spin bonus. You win 10 free games instantly, and you can access the second level of the bonus mode by finding 3 more macarons during the free spins. In level 2, all rewards are doubled.
Love Is in the Air
French Twist has a very similar atmosphere to Café de Paris from 888 Games. Both games could almost be twins, that is how much they look like one another. But if you look close enough, you will notice that Café de Paris only has 5 paylines, a much higher volatility and no free spin bonus to enjoy. In other words, you are looking at the hard version of French Twist.
The Booming Games portfolio is rich in very different slot games, inspired by all sorts of events or cultures. You could be diving under the surface of the ocean with Dolphin’s Luck or turn into a superhero thanks to Family Powers, almost anything is possible here. Note that most of these games, just like French Twist, are based on a medium variance and relatively few paylines.
Big Wins Ahead for All Players
French Twist is based on a fairly popular theme on the slot game market. The French capital is often associated with love and romance, and we could say that French Twist has a bit of a romantic vibe to it. Beyond this, the game proved more dynamic than we expected at first, which is of course great news.
You will have to aim for the free spins to win big in French Twist, even though the basic paytable does contain some very interesting cash prizes already. High rollers will still get a chance to play big in this game, whereas newcomers should probably stick to smaller bets at first, just to see how the game evolves.
