Brand new from Genesis Gaming is this online slot which overlaps a couple of different genres; Gingerbread Lane is all about a little gingerbread family quietly going about their business but it’s also subtly geared towards Christmas. It looks very cute and you shouldn’t feel guilty if the characters make you feel hungry – keep reading to find out what we think of this colourful release.
Gingerbread Lane is a five reel slot with three rows and up to twenty five paylines. Sticks of candy frame the reels behind which we can see the edges of a gingerbread village under a greenish, cloud-dotted sky.
There are four high value symbols all of which are gingerbread characters – one with a Christmas tree, one making a now angel, a cat and dog and a pair underneath the mistletoe. 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values. The mistletoe symbol and the ‘9’ will payout for two on an active payline.
The wild is represented by a star-spangled symbol; it will double any base game win to which it contributes. The Gingerbread Lane logo is the scatter which is the key to the main feature.
Christmas Present Free Spins
If you can land three of the Gingerbread Lane scatter symbols anywhere on the reels you will trigger this bonus game. You will now be taken to a screen displaying the Gingerbread dad and eight gifts; pick one and this will determine the number of spins and the multiplier level for that round. There’s a maximum of 20 free spins available with up to a 10x multiplier.
If you land three+ more scatters during this round you will be asked to repeat the present-choosing process.
Gingerbread Lane Online Slot Playing Tips
The free spins are triggered by scatter symbols which means you can play one or twenty five paylines and still have same chance to reach them. This can suit low rollers but your overall prizes will be proportionately less.
This is an entertaining enough game which looks really nice but perhaps lacks a little in the bonus imagination department. RTP is fairly average at 95.55% and the sound effects aren’t annoying enough to have to reach for the mute button.
