Crisp and clear graphics along with simple gameplay make this Winterberries slot a great addition to regulars slotters.
The theme of this Winterberries slot game pretty much says it all in the title. You’ve got blueberries, blackberries, red ones, yellow ones (if you know the names, let me know) and brightly coloured ones.
Because variety is the spice of life after all, and that’s what they do to this casino game.
And all of this set on the backdrop of snow capped mountains, a lake, and a green tinge of the northern lights, because why the hell not?
If you are going to make a video slot about frozen fruit, then it’s best to make sure that you set it in the coldest most northern part of the world.
Theme aside, Yggdrasil have created a beautiful looking game which is simple to play and understand that all we need is a feature that we have come to love; namely because it stars in one of our favourite the NetEnt Jack Hammer slot machine.
The medium to high volatility of this Winterberries game means that this will no doubt be more appealing to those who have been around video slots for a while, and know how to budget.
Beginners will have to beware as the the low hit rate means that you can quickly see your balance get stuck in the ice.
But don’t let that dissuade you from taking a few spins, as the Winterberries video slot hides a top spin win of up to 1250x your bet making this very alluring.
How you will manage to get that is thanks to the Sticky Wins with free re-spins and the multiplier reels.
One of the main features of Winterberries is that, much like the Jack Hammer games, you get sticky wins; where if you find 3 or more of the same symbol on a winning payline they will freeze.
You’ll then get a free re-spin, where if you manage to find more of the same symbol those will freeze too, this continues until no more of the same symbols show up and you finish with a hopefully bigger win.
A feature that can payout big especially when mixed with the multiplier reels, but on average expect around 3x – 5x your bet back.
This is where this game comes in to its own and separates itself from other sticky win slots.
Mixed with the sticky wins feature, for every full consecutive reel of symbols, from the left most to the right most reels, you will get your wins multiplied.
Fill in reel 1 and 2 with the same symbol, you have a 2x multiplier. If you fill in reel 1, 2 and 3, you have a 3x multiplier, and so on, up to a screen full of the same symbols for huge 5 of a kind, 25 paylines wins, with a 5x multiplier on top.
This is where that 1250x your bet win can come in – though granted the most we’ve seen is around the 50x – 100x your total bet back with 3x or 4x multipliers. Still a nice win when you can get it.
Available to play across a wide range of devices including laptop, Android phone and tablet, iPhone, iPad and Windows devices, the Winterberries slot machine offers fresh spins.
A return to player rate of 96.75%, mixed with the medium to high variance nature, offers you periods of little to no wins with then some decent 100x your bet wins breaking through the icy conditions.
A betting range of 0.25 up to 50.00 per spin means that this 25 payline, 5 reel slot offers a chance for everyone to spin, but beginners take care and budget wisely as you can see your budget get sunk.
Overall, great graphics, decent sounds, and simple mechanics, makes this Winterberries slot online or on mobile a great addition your game portfolio.
And if this isn’t your kind of game then we suggest a just as wintery Spin Sorceress slot from NextGen.
