Free Garden Party slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
It's probably the perfect time to be reviewing this English and summery slot from leading developer, IGT: the sun is shining, the last strawberry has been polished off, and the Aussies have been sent packing in the cricket. That Garden Party has enough to offer the most slots-weary fan, even in winter, is testament to IGT's nose for a good idea or two.
1,024 Ways to Win!
A 5 reel video slot utilizing the firm's unique Multi-Way Xtra system, it basically eschews regular pay-lines for a straight 1,024-ways-to-win set-up. What that means is plenty of bets, but also tonnes of chances to win. If you've ever played IGT's superb tiger-themed slot, Siberian Storm, you'll know all about it.
As the title suggests, Garden Party is chock full of the sights and sounds of summer: flowers, gnomes, water fountains ladybirds, sundials, flowery hats, and 10-through-Ace symbols covered in insects. All that's missing is a Pimm's Wild and a Hosepipe Ban Scatter.
Earn a 2x Multiplier with the Garden Party Logo
Look out for the Garden Party logo, as it acts as the game's Wild. Any winning combos it forms receive a 2x multiplier. Oh, and of course it substitutes for all symbols other than the Scatter. Remember that with the slot's Multi-Way Win system, hitting Wilds can really pay off.
Find the Drunk Gnome to Earn up to 30 Free Spins or a 20x Multiplier
The Scatter is the drunken Gnome symbol. Three or more of those hit on the reels activates free spins. As with many slots, you can take a choice of spins and multipliers: the more spins you have, the lower the multiplier; the higher the multiplier, the lower the number of spins. Do you go for 5 spins and a 20x multiplier or 30 spins with a mere 3x multiplier?
Garden Party is one of those slots where the free spins and multipliers are the game's main draw. The chilled-out vibe is also a great reason to play. If you're in a summer slots mood and think that the 1024-ways is a bit too much betting, check out Rival Gaming's BBQ-themed slot, Summer Ease. If you're new to the Multi-Way system, make sure you head for Siberian Storm, as mentioned at the top of the review.
