Chibeasties 2 Slot is from Swedish slot wizards Yggdrasil Gaming and, as the name suggests, it’s a sequel to the ever-popular original Chibeasties. This March 2017 release is presented across a standard five reels over three rows with 20 Paylines.
Return to the magical forest setting that’s sometimes weird and creepy, with its adorable inhabitants, while also enjoying some cracking new bonus perks.
There’s a distinctly tribal feel to this game, perhaps reinforced by the rhythmic drumbeat which forms the backing track. What’s more, the gorgeous graphics are everything you’d expect from this smooth operator.
How to play
Play Chibeasties 2 Slot on your device of choice from just 20p a pop, or up to a high-stakes £100 per go. What’s more, it’s seamlessly adapted for play on mobile devices.
There are four of the adorable, black-eyed Chibeasties characters in different colours, with the brown one the most lucrative at 250 coins for five in a row. The lower-value symbols are white-spotted toadstools in blue, red, green and purple.
Chibeasties 2 Slot has four Wilds, explained in more detail below, plus a free spins symbol.
This feature seriously steps up the fun factor in this game. Any time you fancy during the slot, you may decide to choose one of a quartet of realms which are effective modes where the Wild behaves slightly differently, and each one has its own music and background. As ever, each Wild can replace all icons bar the free spins Scatter.
It works like this:
- Expanding realm: Wilds expand to take up the whole reel
- Teleporting realm: Wilds ‘teleport’ to different areas on the reels to help create optimal winning potential
- Spreading realm: Wilds generate additional Wilds at random
- Mirroring realm: Wilds sprout mirror images of themselves to create up to two new icons. Those landing on-axis line generate one extra Wild, while those arriving at an intersection create two.
Activate this in the usual way by getting a least a trio of the Scatters anywhere on the reels, and reap your rewards as follows:
- Three free spins symbols = seven free spins
- Four free spins symbols = 15 free spins
- Five free spins symbols = 30 free spins
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to trigger further spins during the round.
You’ll remain in the same Wild realm here, however, the Combo Wild will be guaranteed whenever a Wild icon lands as you’re playing this feature.
There may not be a progressive jackpot in Chibeasties 2 Slot, but the maximum win is a tidy €90,000 or 18,000 coins.
Return to Player (RTP)
You should find Chibeasties 2 Slot a mid-variance affair. RTP or Return to Player is a solidly decent 96.2%. Hit frequency varies but hovers on average around 31%.
This is a compelling game from the geniuses at Yggdrasil, what’s more, it’s not an overly complicated one to play. And it scores highly in the fun and entertainment stakes while being aimed at players of all levels.
Clearly, you’ll particularly enjoy it if you loved the original game. Take it for a spin yourself and see what you think.
