With its layout of five reels and three rows, video slot Cazino Zeppelin from Scandinavian operator Yggdrasil Gaming has 20 non-negotiable Paylines. It takes you into a futuristic, steampunk-powered casino run inside a floating 1930s airship.
A hazy urban landscape (London, apparently) forms the backdrop, while the game is set to an impressive orchestral soundtrack. And while zeppelins may not have exactly been known for their speed, this slot rattles along at a fair old lick.
How to play
Take off from a mere 20p up to a modest £10 max per spin on any device you choose – Cazino Zeppelin is fully mobile optimised.
Symbols are designed with a nineteenth-century look for a real vintage vibe. The lower-paying playing-card symbols include a green club icon, a red heart, yellow spade and blue diamond.
After that in the pecking order comes a quartet of character symbols, all gamblers in the casino. One has a big stash of poker chips. Another is clutching four Ace cards, while a third is rolling a pair of dice. Finally, a pipe-smoking man holding a wad of cash is the most lucrative symbol. It can shell out up to 100x stake for five on a Payline, giving you a 2,000-coin payday.
A steampunk girl serves as this game’s Wild, and she can rock up anywhere on the reels to replace the rest of the regular symbols so that you can create winning combos more easily. Actually, she strikes a different pose for each of the individual reels, so in effect, there are five different Wilds.
Cazino Zeppelin also has a Scatter icon to launch the free spins round. Again, it can show up anywhere.
Free spins feature
As usual, this perk is the highlight of the game. It’s nicely done, with a gust of wind coming in to blow on the wheels and turn them for free.
And, as with most slots, you need to land three of the Scatters to launch the round. This bonus can earn you up to 20 free whirls. And if you scoop a Wild on all five reels, your reward is five extra freebies to add to your tally.
Three Scatters gives you 10 free whirls, four scoops you 15 and five wins you the maximum 20, along with a 40-coin payout.
The other good news is that, for the whole feature, any Wild icons you had at the round’s launch are sticky, meaning they remain fixed in place for as long as the perk carries on.
There isn’t a progressive jackpot in Cazino Zeppelin, unfortunately. But there is a maximum win of €67,000.
Return to Player (RTP)
Cazino Zeppelin is a high-variance offering, with Yggdrasil itself saying the game was designed with the high roller in mind. RTP is a good average at 96%. Meanwhile, there’s a decent hit frequency of 33% or one in three.
Described by one industry reviewer as ‘one of the greatest slots Yggdrasil has ever released’, Cazino Zeppelin certainly shouldn’t disappoint when it comes to entertainment value. What’s more, it could well lead you to some sky-high wins.
Visually superb, it has some very smooth animations, and you’ll love it particularly if you’re a high risk, high reward kind of player.
However, the accessible, modest maximum bet limit does also make this game a good one for novices too. Climb aboard today!
