- but why not try one of these?
The Chinese zodiac forms the basis of this high quality online slot from Betsoft Gaming; it’s called 4 Seasons and it’s a gorgeous-looking example of how to produce a compelling gaming experience. It’s full of bonus features and great sound effects and it’s all described in detail below.
4 Seasons is a five reel slot with three rows and thirty fixed paylines; the theme is of course oriental and behind the ornate, transparent reels there’s a mountainous view of the Chinese countryside with snow drifting across the landscape although this changes as the seasons progress.
The twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac are represented by the twelve animals and these are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig; you will also notice these symbols on the wheel in the bottom left hand corner and this is described in more detail below.
The golden Maneki Neko cat is the wild symbol and this will substitute for all others except the scatter – that’s represented by a Yin Yang icon which is the key to the free spins feature.
Let’s get to that big wheel to the bottom left of the reels then – this is the Seasonal Wheel and with every 30 spins you make it will rotate anti-clockwise to a different animal. The animal at the top will earn a 10x multiplier if it is part of a winning combo, the animal either side will earn a 5x multiplier and the three to the sides of that one will earn a 2x multiplier.
Every 90 spins changes the animals on the wheel and also the season so eventually you’ll cycle through all the animals and seasons.
Block Win Combos
The animals can appear stacked on the reels and if you land enough to create a block there’s an extra multiplier awarded as follows:
- Two Reel Block – 2x multiplier
- Three Reel Block – 3x multiplier
- Four Reel Block – 5x multiplier
- Five Reel Block – 10x multiplier
Yin & Yang Free Spins
This is triggered by landing three or more of the Yin Yang scatter symbols anywhere in view for which you will receive the following:
- Three scatters – 8 free spins
- Four scatters – 12 free spins
- Five scatters – 20 free spins
More spins can be retriggered in this round by landing more scatter symbols.
Use the ‘Double Up’ button below the reels if you’d like to gamble any base game win; this is a heads/tails game with no maximum win but you’ll lose all your winnings if you get it wrong.
4 Seasons is a brilliant game which maintains the high standards of many other Betsoft releases; the Seasonal Wheel offers an interesting reason to keep playing and it’s all of an extremely high quality. Check it out as soon as possible!
