Eggstravaganza Slot from Rival Gaming
There are plenty of Christmas slots around – though this is the only one I have played which is based on Easter. There are a lot of Easter related symbols crammed into this real money 3 reel video slot. These include the eggs in the title, and also chocolate rabbits, chicks and even an Easter Bonnet. With chicks walking across the top of the screen and a rabbit bouncing about, this slot certainly has its humorous side. There is also a serious side to Eggstravaganza – you can win up to 2500 coins from a single spin during regular play. Unusually for a 3 reel slot, this game also has a free spins bonus round, which comes with a 3x multiplier.
The design of this slot brings to mind an Easter egg hunt. There is a lot of springtime greenery, with brightly colored eggs scattered around. You certainly can’t miss the bright pink logo which dominates the top right area of this slot. The reels have an unusual background, which looks like the weave of a basket. Symbols, which all have an egg of different colors behind them, spin.
I like the control buttons, which you will find underneath the reels. These are designed to look like Easter chocolate. There is a drum (bongo type) led tune playing while you spin. This contrasts with a ‘boing’ sound when you hit wins and drumroll when the reels are just spinning. When you hit wins, there are also animations. These range from the chicks walking over the top of the screen, through to the rabbit jumping about in the grass underneath them. This is unusual for a 3 reel slot, which are usually more static in the graphics – a welcome change.
Prizes are listed on the left hand side. Here you will see each of the symbols, along with the prize for 1, 2 and 3 coins. If you are experienced with 3 reel slots you will know that you should always choose 3 coins on this type of game as the payouts are proportionally bigger. This is the case with Eggstravaganza, where the top prize has an additional 250 coins above the proportional jump between 1 and 2 coins.
Prizes on Eggstravaganza
The brightly colored yellow and pink Easter eggs are the highest paying symbols. 3 of these (assuming 3 coins) will get you 2500 coins during regular play. Next comes the real (as opposed to chocolate) rabbits. 3 of these will get you 300 coins, and you’ll also trigger the free spins round (see below) with 1+ of these anywhere on the reels.
Back to the normal payouts, where the chick (225) is followed by the butterfly (150), flowers (120), bonnet (90) and chocolate eggs (75). Following this is the chocolate rabbit (45) and the yellow chicks, which pay for 2 or even 1 on a line.
Free Spins Bonus Game
Very few 3 reel slots have bonus games – let alone with win multipliers. Hitting one or more of the (real, not chocolate) rabbits will trigger this. You get 5 spins for 1 and 10 spins for 2+. The game is the same, though wins are multiplied by 3, which puts the top prize at a generous 7500 coins. A counter will appear on the top left of the reels to total your wins and show how many spins you have remaining.
Overall Experience with Eggstravaganza
Well, I could say that this is the best Easter themed 3 reel slot I have ever played… though I guess it is obvious that it is the only one! This is a simple slot, and not one that would keep me engaged for too long. The chance of bigger wins (particularly from the free spins round with the 3x multiplier) is the main reason to check it out.
