Rendered in bright primary colours and using only eight payline symbols for better chances of a win, Easter Surprise from Playtech is an online slot for those who want to inject some Easter fun into their online casino play.
The layout is simple: five transparent reels suspended before a grassy green hillock under a sky scattered with puffy clouds. Only two brightly decorated Easter eggs, peeping out from a corner, hint at the Easter egg theme.
Players can set the coin denomination between 0.01 and 5.00, wagering up to 10 coins per payline, and there are 20 paylines. So Easter Surprise can be played for low stakes, or by high rollers chasing its biggest prizes. The paylines are listed within bright orange flowers down the sides of the reels.
A Feast of Brightly Coloured Eggs
Easter Surprise uses five Poker symbols, the 10 to A. They are fashioned as novelty Easter eggs, each wrapped with a bright green bow. They win prizes for three matches or better, with five As scoring the top win among them: namely, 150 credits.
Three large Easter eggs, wrapped in foil displaying stars, chicks or dots, complete the standard payline symbols. The yellow egg with purple can win up to 200 credits, and both the blue egg with gold chicks and the orange egg with purple and white dots begin paying for two matches or better. For five of a kind, they win the Easter Surprise slot’s top payline prizes: respectively 400 and 500 credits.
Win up to 10,000 Coins on Wild
A grinning, buck-toothed Easter Bunny bearing a mysterious wrapped gift serves as the Easter Surprise slot’s Wild. Whenever he can substitute for another payline symbol to create a winning combo, he unwraps his present to reveal the appropriate symbol match. The only symbols the Wild cannot replace are the two bonus icons.
Unbroken runs of matching Easter Surprise Wilds from Reel 1 on the same payline also win individual prizes: for two, three, four or five matches, the player wins 10, 200, 2,000 or 10,000 coins.
Two More Bonus Games
There are two more bonus icons in Easter Surprise. One is the Easter Surprise Scatter, which can trigger 10 free spins with a win multiplier of X3 if three pop up in any reel windows. All wins except the Easter Egg Bonus are tripled during free spins, which means that players can see this round add to their winnings substantially. In addition, two or more Scatters will win an instant multiple of the total spin wager, ranging from X2 to X500 for five Scatters.
A basket of gaily coloured Easter eggs labelled Bonus is the final Easter Surprise symbol. Players need three adjacent to each other, anywhere on the same payline, to trigger the Easter Egg Bonus. The Easter Bunny brings the player six eggs to choose from, and depending on how many Bonus icons triggered the round, the player gets three, four or five picks to reveal instant prizes.
