4 Seasons Slots is a game from Betsoft with a theme that allows the famous game provider’s animators to unveil the full potential of their masterful skills.
Looks and Main Limits
The breath-taking background landscape is set at the beautiful peaks of the Asian mountains. There is a typical tiny Shaolin- like temple to the right of the reels. A couple of ancient cherry trees with elegant curves and pink colors are growing in the middle of waterfalls and far behind the sharp, almost spear-resembling peaks are visible, shining in icy teal and snowy white under the setting sun.
The colors however, aren’t the best part of the appearance of the game – it is the animation. Every season is memorable with one – winter has its snowflakes and autumn has its floating falling red-brownish leaves. There is a downpour present with all the seasons and the movement of the water of the waterfalls is so awesomely rendered that you can literally spend minutes watching it in a state of total relaxation without having to worry about spins and payouts. The main options under the reels are depicted on a gorgeous emerald grass swamp with little puddles of water that tremble under the rain drops.
The game offers 5 reels, 3 rows and 30 paylines. Coin sizes vary between 2 cents and 1 dollar. The maximum number of bet coins with which a spin can be entered is 5, making the maximum possible bet 150 dollars. There is a Stop option available, meaning that the spin of the reels can be interrupted, whenever the gambler decides to.
The symbols and the paytable in 4 Seasons Slots work very differently from usual 5-reel slot games. There are 12 symbols, which if unaffected by side features pay exactly the same amounts with the exact same combinations. All of these 12 icons are cute little fuzzy creatures with giant heads and cute, beautiful eyes. There is a Tiger, a Snake, a Chicken, a Bunny, a Pig, a Dog, a Mouse, a Monkey, a white Puppy with a 17th century-style wig-like hair-do, a Horse, a Cow and even a Dragon. They all pay 50 coins for 3 symbols, 100 coins for 4 symbols and 250 coins for 5 symbols. These earnings can be increased through that beautiful seasonal wheel that can be seen at the bottom left corner of the main screen. Depending on what kind of a fuzzy animal the wheel lands on, a different multiplier will be provided and that could be 10 times, 5 times or 2 times.
The Seasonal Wheel is the main feature of the game. First off, the season will change every 90 spins and the wheel’s cursor will point to a different animal every 30 spins. The pointed animal will become golden and pay 10 times. The animals that are next to the golden one (to the right and to the left of it) will provide gamblers with a multiplier of 5. The 3 animals to the left and to the right of the silver animals will deliver a multiplier of 2.
The wild symbol of the game is the Golden Cat. They can replace the rest of the symbols in the game with the exception of the Yin Yang scatter. Get 5 Golden Cats on the reels and you will get a colossal jackpot award of 50 000 coins. Get at least 3 of the Yin Yang scatters and the free spins feature of the game will be initiated. If the right scatter combination reappears during the free spins, more free spins will be awarded. 3 scatters deliver 8 free spins, 4 scatters bring 12 free spins and 5 scatters grant 20 free spins.
Players can also benefit from the so-called Block Win Combos. If the same fluffy animal appears on all 3 rows and the symbols can be connected with a line of some kind from at least 2 adjacent reels, a multiplier on the earnings made after the spin will be added. The size of the multiplier will depend on the number of reels, on which that line is spread. A 2-reel block will deliver a 2 times multiplier, a 3-reel one – a 3 times multiplier, a 4-reel one – a 5 times multiplier and a 5-reel one – a 10 times multiplier. Speaking of multipliers, the common Double Up feature is also available. Players can choose to double all the earnings made after a spin or just half of them; a Heads or Tails game will commence and if the player guesses correctly, the earning will be increased.
4 Seasons Slots is yet another Betsoft game that fires on all cylinders and satisfies in every way – appearance-wise, gameplay-wise, profit-wise and any fan of 5-Reel slots should not miss the opportunity to experience it.
