A Cash Egg-stravaganza
Opening in a pastoral setting with birds chirping merrily and hedgerows in the background, Great Eggspectations is awash with bucolic bliss. It’s springtime, and the birds and bees are out in force, showing off the latest additions to their families. Spin the reels and a series of seasonal symbols will drop into view; fluffy yellow chicks, yellow daffodils and chocolate eggs.
Great Eggspectations is a 10-payline slot and, unusually for Booming Games, they’ve provided an option to adjust the number of active paylines. The line bet can be set between 0.03 and 3 via the very pink and cutesy controls situated below the reels. With the maximum bet settings enabled, you’ll wager no more than 30 per spin.
Springtime, Spin Time
The game symbols, the flowers in particular, are extremely pretty; in fact the whole game has been beautifully designed with the static and dynamic elements integrating smoothly. The lower value symbols include various flowers and a yellow chick. There are also three Easter eggs, the most valuable of which fetches a respectable 9,000 for five. That’s the red egg, but even the yellow one is worth 6,00 for five in a line.
Two bunnies perform the role of scatter and wild, a grey rabbit and a white one respectively. The scatter rabbit, seen clutching a carrot, will trigger free spins when three or more symbols appear in view. Wild, meanwhile, is a white bunny clutching a dandelion. In addition to substituting for regular symbols, it’s worth an impressive 60,000 for five.
Bunny Hopping Bonuses
Free spins are your ticket to the mega money in this game. Before you collect them, your first task is to hit the stop button to determine which symbol will be expanded for the duration of the spins. Wild and scatter are excluded from becoming expanded, but every other symbol is game. Expanded symbols will fill the entire reel, making it easy to generate wins with its aid.
The other means of mopping up on the reels is by landing at least three wilds in view, which will activate 2-Way Pay. Winnings will be recorded both ways – left to right and vice-versa – for the next 10 spins, doubling your money. It’s possible to retrigger this feature during 2-Way Pay.
Other Egg-cellent Efforts
If you’d like to try something similar to Great Eggspectations, give Easter Eggs a go. It’s a 20 payline slot from Play ‘N Go that adopts a cutesy theme just like this slot, complete with bunnies and rural bliss. Up to 15 free spins can be won. While we’re on a rabbit tip, there’s also Nektan’s Show Me The Bunny which is a cool name for a substandard slot, and Big Buck Bunny, which is a Merkur game with just 5 paylines but up to 10 free spins.
Great Eggspectations is one of Booming Games’ most fluent releases to date. The game is well named, well designed and extremely well integrated. Playing it is a smooth, seamless and ultimately cheerful experience. The slots developer have successfully captured the themes and symbols that are associated with Easter, building them into a game whose risk to reward ratio is pitched just right. Great Eggspectations is the sort of slot you could easily see yourself returning to again to catch a glimpse of those cute bunnies and lucrative free spins.
