Winterberries Mobile Slot Review
WinterBerries is cute, fruit-flavoured Video Slot from Yggdrasil Gaming, and while it’s not the most conventional - in terms of the way it looks, feels, and plays – it’s quickly catching on with players, especially as Yggdrasil Gaming become a more recognisable name within the online gambling world.
One of the latest, mobile-optimised games to come from their development lap, WinterBerries is a 5 reel, 25 pay-line game, and it offers frozen wilds, re-spins and increasing multipliers to players – just the right components for a good Video Slot!
One of the things we noticed straight away in the Slots4Play office, was that the musical soundtrack was far-beyond the level you see in most Video Slots.
While game-sounds usually consist of cookie-cutter-like-sounds, WinterBerries is fully custom-built, and everything from the reel-spinning noise, to the sound the buttons make when you click them, is designed to embrace the game – something that (while it might SEEM like a small touch), actually makes a big difference to the playability of the game.
Winter Berries offers two features. The first is triggered after every winning spin, and the symbols that make up the win then freeze, while a re-spin takes place.
If you land more of the same symbol, another re-spin is awarded, and this continues until the symbol doesn’t land anymore.
There’s also a multiplier bonus. This is a progressive bonus, so the more you play, the closer you’ll get to unlocking it – it’s just a metre at the side of your screen that fills up slowly with wins, and when it does, you’ll get 10 spins with a special 5X multiplier.
The thing we really liked about the Multiplier Bonus, was the fact that it’s “guaranteed”, no matter how good – or bad – your base-game wins are. At least, even if you’re having a terrible session, you can rest, safe in the knowledge that you will get a bonus!
WinterBerries worked perfectly across all mobile devices during our tests, and we were able to load, run, and play the game on all major Operating Systems, including iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows, and loading the game took just a couple of seconds – although bear in mind, that was using a WIFI signal – so you’d be well-advised to do the same if you plan on gaming from a mobile device.
Pros: Simple and easy to play – a perfect Video Slot for beginners.
Cons: The feature-side of things is lacking.
