Seasons Slot is a five-reeler with three rows plus 20 Paylines from Swedish slot geniuses Yggdrasil Gaming. Based on the seasons of the year, it’s inspired by the natural world and set in a delightful forest, with creeper plants framing the see-through reels.
You play in one of four available modes – one for winter, spring, summer and autumn and each with its own separate Wild feature. Rather than every few months, seasons here change every 10 spins, with the graphics altering accordingly.
This game looks gorgeous and is as full of creative flair as players of this operator’s games have come to expect, with colourful, cartoon-like graphics. Meanwhile, the perky backing music seems to suit the natural theme down to the (leaf-strewn) ground. This is genuinely the game for all seasons!
How to play
Prices per spin kick off from 20p a pop and rise to a high-rolling £100. Place your bets in the usual way – the standard Max Bet, Autoplay and Spin functions are all here.
Among the icons in the symbol set are toadstools, pine cones, acorns, leaves, blueberries and strawberries, all done with Yggdrasil’s usual visual panache. They stay the same as the season’s change.
The lower-paying symbols incorporate card suits shaped as four leaves, each one depicting a different season.
Seasons Slot special features
Wild symbols vary with the seasons, and each one does something different:
- The hare is the winter Wild and it duplicates itself on a different position
- The fox is the spring Wild, offering a welcome multiplier based on how many Wilds your game screen shows at that particular time – land five Wilds in this mode and enjoy a multiplier of up to 10x
- The deer is the summer Wild and it’s an expanding one making four tiles around it Wild
The owl is the autumn Wild, offering a free respin on landing and moving a single place during the respin; the goes keep coming while an owl is present anywhere on the reels
The seasons change at random every 10 whirls.
Meanwhile, the free spins Scatter is an acorn plus a trio of oak leaves.
This round is a fairly standard addition to the game. If you land three, four or five Scatter symbols, you get seven, 15 or 30 free whirls respectively. You should find you see a few more Wilds in this round, which is played in the same ‘season’ as the triggering spin, meaning there’s a chance of 10x multipliers in autumn mode.
While there’s no progressive jackpot in Seasons, there is a very decent maximum payout of 30,670 coins.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is 96.1%, and Seasons is a mid-variance offering with a hit rate of just over one in four at 25.1%. You’ll need to learn to handle whatever the weather throws at you!
The various Wild features keep the action moving in Seasons, while wins here can be impressive. And even if there aren’t that many additional features, there should be enough to hold your interest. What’s more, the design is sleek and the gameplay smooth and solid. So this one’s a great slot to try any time of year. Give it a go – and see what you think.
