A trip to Moscow is never complete without the purchase of some of those little dolls which are contained inside each other – they’re actually called Matryoshka dolls but for the purposes of this online slot from Thunderkick games they are Babushkas and they contain lots of clever gameplay and bonus features.
Babushkas is a five reel slot with seventeen fixed paylines and those transparent reels spin against a backdrop of a patterned tapestry and there’s a Balalaika tune to accompany your gameplay.
The standard symbols are all dolls of differing sizes and colours – yellow, orange, red, purple, pink, blue and green.
The wild symbol is an enclosed doll with a big ‘W’ on the front and it substitutes for all others – it also triggers various bonuses which are explained below.
This occurs within normal gameplay – whenever you land a winning combo any neighbouring symbols of one lower value will be upgraded to match that combo if a new payline can be formed. A payout is made each time and this process continues until no more upgrades/new paylines can be made.
If all symbols eventually match there’s be one upgrade for all of them; if they reach the maximum value (yellow doll) then they’ll all change to a ghost symbols and you’ll receive 100x your stake.
Wild Mystery Bonus
The wild doll only appears on reel three and when it does it may spin to reveal a star on the upper half; this will award one of three features:
- Scare Bear – the lowest value symbols on the reels will be upgraded once, twice or three times depending on the size of the bear in the wild symbol.
- Charm Bear – all symbols will upgrade one level.
- Dance Bear – seven free spins are awarded with a new wild symbol on reel three on each spin.
Babushkas is a really superb slot to play with regular feature triggers and some very cute animations; it’s a very low variance game with an RTP of 95.80% and you should definitely check it out.
