Seasons slot is a rare nature-themed game, in fact I can’t think of another close to it except maybe IGT’s Pixies of The Forest or iSoftBet’s Forest Mania at a stretch. The game takes place over a peaceful painted woodland background which actually changes randomly to four different seasonal views as the game progresses once 10 to 49 spins have occurred in any one season. The soundtrack is gentle music which reverts to to the sounds of wildlife when the game is idle, so we have a very soothing and peaceful start. One question remains, will Seasons slot make your balance Spring or Fall?
On the reels…
20 paying lines are present on our 5 reels of 3 rows and we get no stacked symbols and as with all Yggdrasil games the top pay is the same for 5-of-a-kind Wilds and best icon, in this case the Strawberry at 50x bet. The Juniper Berries pay 37.5x, Acorns 30x, Pine Cones 25x and Toadstools 20x. The card values are imaginatively crafted from various leaves and award 5x down to 2.5x bat for a full line.
Now the Wilds all behave differently depending upon which Season you are playing in.
Winter Wild is a Hare and he will duplicate to another position to make the best possible win, same as the Wilds work in netent’s Wonky Wabbits.
Spring Wild is the Owl which will fly to another position and stay in view for a re-spin which continues until any owl(s) have flown from the grid.
Summer Wild is a Deer which will expand into a cross when it lands so it can fill up to 5 positions if landing on the middle row.
Autumn Wild is the Fox which awards multipliers to any win(s) it appears in. The multiplier is better the more that appear, one Fox Wild pays 2-5x and if 5 are on the screen they pay 7-10x.
Forest free spins
You can land 3, 4 or 5 Golden Oak Leave scatters anywhere in view which awards 7, 10 or 30 free spins respectively and these may be retriggered too. During these you’ll see far more Wilds landing to enhance those winning chances.
Seasons slot is quite a low volatility game with a theoretical chance of getting your 50x top award on a 10x multiplier with the Autumn Wild but believe me you’ll spend the next four seasons waiting for that event. The RTP is a creditable 96.10% with good graphics and animations plus I have to admit the frequently changing background is a great touch here along with the differing Wild enhancements that accompany each new season. Another innovative game from Yggdrasil and I’ll be sure to visit this forest again – whatever the weather…
