Extra Chocolate on Top
99 Time is taking you to the beach on a sunny summer day. You can watch the waves and a Ferris wheel in the distance, but you haven’t come here to swim or enjoy the view. The ice cream selection on this beach is particularly impressive, and you will see many of them spinning on the reels right in the middle of the game screen.
99 Time frees up as much space as possible to let players admire the view and focus on the reels themselves. The usual command bar has been replaced by a separate command menu, for instance. The overall atmosphere of 99 Time is colourful and dynamic, not the most visually impressive slot game out there but definitely a pleasant environment to place a few bets.
Sweet and Melting
99 Time contains the usual set of 5 reels, with 25 paylines and the possibility to bet from 0.25 to 12.50 credits every time you spin the reels. The command menu contains 2 sets of arrows to help you adjust your settings freely, plus an autoplay switch right on the main screen. 99 Time doesn’t offer a lot of options when it comes to customising the basic settings, and we did wish that the betting range were a little more spacious.
We found 99 Time rather average when it comes to winning possibilities, which corresponds to a medium variance as stated previously. Each spin has the potential to unlock a prize, big or small, but we did have to insist a bit and stay patient until we were able to score our first big prizes. On the other hand, you will find that the paytable can actually be very generous, with a top prize set at x5000. All of the basic reel symbols consist of colourful ice creams, of all shapes and flavours.
Surprises in Your Cone
The fun doesn’t stop here in 99 Time. The ice cream vendor can pop up on the reels at any time, with 3 or more of them scattered on the screen triggering a special mini game. Pick as many symbols as you can, and each pick carries a chance for you to pocket 100 times the value of your total wager instantly – which can translate into some very impressive rewards.
The ice cream van itself serves two different functions. As a scatter, it can award up to 25 free spins instantly. You can even retrigger this feature over and over again, up to 15 times in a row if you are extremely lucky. As wilds, the van can replace the ice cream symbols and also double their value, which puts the maximum cash prize at x10,000.
Pick Your Flavour
Sugar Train, which is another Eyecon slot game, has an equally sweet theme and a set of rules that is pretty similar to that of 99 Time. You will find the same free spin bonus there, and the same general layout as well. Fluffy Favourites from Globalcom is also quite close, but without as many free spins available.
If you still feel like lingering by the sea for a while longer, see if you can get your hands on Beach Bar from Gamescale. Swap the ice cream with a cocktail and to win as many free spins as you possibly can on the reels, with perhaps a few multipliers on top as well.
A Slot Game for Everyone
Nobody knows why 99 Flakes were named that way, but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying 99 Time. The game is fairly original and features some very generous bonuses, which alone are excellent reasons to give it a go. We were particularly fond of the many free spins available at any time during the game.
In a nutshell, we thought that 99 times was a very efficient slot game, with solid features and a fun theme. Everybody loves an ice cream on the beach, and even if you cannot leave work just now doesn’t mean that you don’t deserve one, too.
