Winter Wonders Slot

Winter Wonders Slot  Introduction

Winter Wonders is a video slot by Red Tiger Gaming where Disney’s Frozen meets the winter Flower Fairies. This five reels and 40 pay lines slots theme is cute and magical, with fairies gracefully floating onto the reels giving you four mini-features with big wilds, magic spins, special reels and magic nudges. Winter Wonderland also has a Free Spins Round, which gives you up to 15 Free Spins initially; however, you can win more should the Fairy decide to remove the lower-paying symbols from the reels of this medium to high variance slot with an RTP of 96.29%.

Winter Wonders Slot Features

The Fairy is the Wild symbol, and with the wave of her wand, she delivers 1 of 4 mini features, which are as follows:

  • Random Big Wilds Feature – The Fairy turns one or more of the reels wild, and a new payout gets made with stacked wilds in position.

  • Special Reels Feature – A spin with all the lower value symbols removed.

  • Magic Reels Feature – 1 or more reels all morph into the same symbol.

  • Magic Nudge Feature – The Fairy nudges different reels and creates winning combos.

Winter Wonders also has a Free Spins feature triggered by landing three gemstone scatters anywhere on the reels. Players get shown three gems. Select one to reveal the number of Free Spins you receive. The Free Spins will be between 9-15. You get to add to your Free Spins by landing more gemstones during this feature. Keep your eyes peeled for the Fairy as she can magically remove lower value symbols from the reels.

Final Thoughts

Winter Wonders has a super slick design, and it also comes with plenty of base game extras that hit regularly. The Free Spins are harder to achieve, so call on the Fairy to work her magic in this medium variance slot.

Casino Games – Pachinko

Casino Games - Pachinko  Pachinko is a mechanical gambling game, which originated in Japan in the years following World War II and has since developed into an industry with an annual turnover of ¥21.5 trillion, or $200 billion. Indeed, Japan is home to tens of thousands of pachinko parlours, which are largely the preserve of the Korean Japanese, who were excluded from the traditional workforce in the post-war years.

Pachinko is akin to pinball, insofar as it involves launching steel ball bearings into the machine, but is played vertically, rather than horizontally. The word pachinko is the diminutive form of the Japanese word ‘pachin’, which describes the natural clicking sound the machine make. Players insert money, push the so-called ‘tamakashi button’ to release a fixed number of balls into the upper ball tray and gently rotate a handle to start firing them into the machine.

The idea is that as many balls as possible negotiate the pin maze and drop into the main prize hole, a.k.a. the ‘gate’, in the middle of the field of play. Too little, or too much, pressure on the handle may result in balls missing the field of play altogether and only a small percentage of those that do make it – perhaps 6% or 7%, on average – will enter the gate. Nevertheless, each ball that does enter the gate wins additional balls, plus a spin of the reels, which provides an opportunity to hit a bonus, including the jackpot. At the end of a playing session, winnings, in the form of balls, are tallied by a member of staff, who creates a receipt that can be redeemed, for prizes large and small, at the prize counter.
