Easter Surprise

Published: 07/01/2013

Easter Surprise is certainly one of Playtech’s more vivid slot games. Against a field of green grass and a pastel sky, the symbols on the five slot reels roll past in a blur of primary colours, coming to rest as a musical scale counts the stops from Do, Re, Mi to Fa and So. Winning combinations can appear on any of 20 paylines, and there are three special features to add to the festive holiday theme.

A variety of coin denominations are available on Easter Surprise, starting as low as €0.01 per line and running all the way up to €5.00. It is possible to wager up to 10 credits per line, which means the maximum wager per spin can amount to €1,000. The wagers are easily adjusted using the toggles below the first four reels.

Winning combinations of 5X to 150X come from matching three or more card symbols, Tens through Aces. Higher awards are paid for matching Yellow, Blue or Orange decorated eggs—from 2X to 500X. The buck-toothed, gift offering Easter Bunny is the wild symbol, substituting for all symbols except Easter Baskets and the Easter Surprise scatter. Catching 2, 3, 4 or 5 wilds on an active payline pays 10X, 200X, 2000X or 10000X, respectively.

Whenever three or more Easter Baskets align on an active payline, the Easter eggs Bonus is activated. A new screen appears with the Easter Bunny offering a basket filled with six colourfully painted eggs, each one worth a hidden cash prize. The player may select from three to five of the eggs, depending on the number of Easter Baskets that triggered the bonus round.

A second bonus feature relates to the Easter Surprise scatter symbol. Whenever 2, 3, 4 or 5 of the scatters appear, anywhere on the reels, the game immediately pays 2, 5, 50 or 500 times the total amount wagered. For three or more scatters displayed, the Free Games bonus is triggered. The player receives 10 free spins with a 3X multiplier for all winning combinations. The reel contain both the Easter Baskets and the Easter Surprise scatter symbols during the free spins so either bonus can be retriggered, too.

Another bonus aspect of the Easter Surprise slots game is its Gamble Feature. Following any win, the player has the option to guess a card, red or black to double up the winnings. Selecting correctly allows redoubling, too. Otherwise, the “Collect” button can be clicked to retain the amount won and return to the slot game mode. A history of past cards drawn provides information that can be used to make the choice a little easier. The double-up limit is €2,500.

Those who like to customize their slot play will appreciate the many options that have been built into Easter Surprise. The Autoplay button below the first reel can be used to pre-set up to 99 spins. The spins will continue uninterrupted until either the player pressed the stop button or the game reels display a special bonus that requires the player’s input.

A pull-down menu can also be accessed by clicking on the “Tools” symbol at the top right of the screen. It gives “Options” such as “Game Settings,” “Audio Settings” and “General Settings.” This is where the player can disable the game sounds, background sounds or dealer voices. It is also possible to adjust the game speed for normal play or fast play.
