High Tea slot review
Veteran online slots developer Playtech are usually associated with the more high octane slot releases such as the boobs and beaches themed Baywatch slot and the range of Marvel slots that the developer released.
This slot caters for fans of Downton Abbey or Upstairs, Downstairs as opposed to those that adore the X-Men or Captain America movies. The tempo is also slightly slower than what fanatics of action slots will be used to as well.
On the Reels...
High Tea is a 5-reel, 20-payline video slot that has symbols you would stereotypically link with an aristocratic garden tea party.
The background music will have you thinking you’re on the set of a Julian Fellowes production and the symbols on the reels will only add to that sense of occasion. There are colorful tea cakes of all shapes and sizes on the reels as well as regular symbols to keep the small pay outs rolling in.
A Maximum Payout of £126,800
The biggest pay out for symbols on the reels is the brunette lady Scatters. If you manage to hit five of these across the reels then you will win 634x your line bet. This means that if you place a maximum bet of £200 then you will win a payout of £126,800.
Look Out for the Expanding Wild Tea Cake
One great feature on this slot if the Expanding Wild feature. If you manage to hit any Wild symbol on Reels 2 and/or 4 then you will see the entire reel become Wild and it will transform the Wild tea cake into a massive Expanding Wild cake stand.
There's Also a Re-Spin Feature
This Expanding Wild feature then paves the way for the Re-Spin feature. The Expanding Wild reel will hold in place for one spin after the feature has been triggered.
In addition, if you trigger another Expanding Wild feature during the re-spin it will hold in place for the bonus spin.
Surprisingly, there are a number of these garden tea party slots out there. Personally, I’m not the biggest fan but there is obviously a market somewhere. I felt this game could have done with an extra bonus feature or two.
If you are looking for a more enjoyable eloquently-themed slot then IGT’s Garden Party slot might provide you with more fun and frolics. Maybe it is just my preference but I tend to stay away from these more “sophisticated” slots; I simply find them quite dull.
