It's time for another Kerching and, seeing as though we're so close to Easter, there's only one topic to cover! Chocolate eggs and bunnies are the usual affairs at this time and year, but we all know Malcolm and Lucky like to talk about, and that's slots! So, let's jump straight into it.
Malcolm and Lucky’s Guide To Easter
M: Alright Lucky lad, ready for a new blog?
L: Ah, go on then. What are we doing this time?
M: Well it’s Easter this week, so what better way to celebrate than playing a few suitably themed slots?
L: I do love a good game Malc, I expect there are a few here as well.
M: You’d be correct mate, four to be exact.
L: Lovely stuff, shall we get started then?
M: I think we shall.
M: First off, we’ve got Easter Island slots.
L: An entire island dedicated to chocolate eggs? Sign me right up lad.
M: Unfortunately, Lucky, it’s just called Easter Island, it’s not actually based on the holiday! There’s plenty of great stuff still to be found in the game though, like giant stone heads!
L: Uh that’s cool, I think…
M: Come on mate, it’s got a pretty sweet bonus feature.
L: Ok, you’ve sold me.
M: That’s the spirit! The first thing to note is that the game is focused on massive Moai heads found the island. The stand at either side of the reels and are just about the only thing in the game not splashed with colour. The visual design here really is brilliant, with a well-rendered 3D aesthetic that’s really pleasing to the eye.
L: Sounds great Malc, but what about that feature?
M: Well, it's the game' sole bonus, and it's a hefty one too. This might not entice you at first, but the triggering criteria is much easier than other bonuses as you just have to land a win in the game! Basically, this will award on re-spin with various reel modifiers that can be applied depending on how many you land. Three will net you a spin with the winning symbol replacing all high or low value symbols depending on its own worth. Four will grant a re-spin with an extra two rows added to the reels, plus the symbols are replaced as in the first. Finally, five will award a re-spin with an extra four rows adding up to 103 paylines as well as the symbols on the previous levels.
L: Wow there really is a lot to that feature.
M: Right Lucky and the fact it’s triggered by wins means that the bonuses occur quite frequently. All in all, this is a solid slot and a great way to open this list!
L: Nice one Malc, let’s move onto the next.
M: Now, the Easter bunny is the official mascot of this holiday, so next up is a slot based around a bunch of fake fluffy animals!
L: Alright, I can get on board with that. Give me the details Malc.
M: Let’s start with the visuals. This is an incredibly colourful slot with a look and cast that could have been lifted straight from a cartoon. The hand-drawn look of it is well made too and really adds to the game’s experience.
L: Visuals, check. What do we have in the features though?
M: This game has a couple of stand-alone bonuses as well as a gamble feature. The first bonus is a free spins mode that is triggered by landing the pink elephant symbol at least three times. The number of spins you get is dictated by the symbols landed. Three will get you 15, four will grant 20 and five will award 25. This mode can be retriggered and, even better, any wins you land in it will be trebled!
L: Tasty indeed Malc, what’s the other one?
M: It's called the Toybox Pick and can be triggered by landing the claw scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. You will be given five prize picks with the chance of winning a multiplier, and you could win up to 100x your wager! As for the gamble feature, it functions the same as in other slots. Just pick a card suit and see if you're correct. If you are, you'll double your winnings, but you could lose it all if it isn't.
L: Nice one Malc, that’s a hefty amount of bonus features. What’s next on the list?
Masques of San Marco
M: Ah, the penultimate game. It’s pretty extravagant one as well!
L: It looks it mate, though I must admit that I’ve never heard of this one before.
M: That’s your loss mate, this is one of the most interesting slots I’ve seen. From its theme to the actual mechanics, everything here is made to separate itself from the rest.
L: Ok, but I don’t see how this is related to Easter though?
M: It’s the whole theme pal as the game is based on the Carnival of Venice which begins with the celebration of Lent.
L: Oh right, I guess that is a pretty unique theme! What’s this about the mechanics though, are there some special features I need to know about?
M: Aye Lucky, the first thing being that this game is played on two reel sets! This plays into the free spins feature, as the two twenty payline sets will combine to make a 40 payline reel. You will then be granted six free spins with the full amount of paylines available.
L: Can you retrigger them?
M: No, however, the game's other bonus does a lot to negate this. This is the collapsing reels mechanic, and we've seen it used in different slots before. Every time you land a winning combination, the symbols involved will disappear. These will then be replaced by new symbols, potentially creating new wins in the process. This feature will carry on until no more wins are landed. This is useful on its own but, when combined with the free spins feature, it can be very generous indeed.
L: Lovely jubbly, we’re onto the last now aren’t we?
M: We are lad and it’s a cracker.
Foxin’ Wins Football Fever
L: I’m looking forward to hearing how this one’s an Easter-themed slot!
M: Don’t ever doubt my reasoning Lucky, it’s infallible. As you know, there are many periods in the calendar year that prove massive for Football.
L: Yeah, I guess?
M: Well, Easter is one of those times. The business end of the season when titles are decided, and legends are made.
L: Ok, I’m with you, what’s this one about then?
M: It’s part of the Foxin’ Wins series and follows the exploits of the smoothest animal on four legs.
L: Hard disagree Malc.
M: Alright Lucky, calm down. Anyway, this is a really good slot with a fair few features to unlock.
L: Right, I’m back in. Tell me more about these bonuses.
M: First up, we’ve got the free spins mode which is triggered by landing the game’s scatter symbol three times anywhere on the reels. This will award ten free spins and any wins landed in the round will have a 2x multiplier applied. This feature can be retriggered for another ten spins.
L: Sounds good pal, what about the others?
M: There’s a random bonus which can occur at any point during a spin. This will either grant you a cash prize or give you the chance to catch a leprechaun in order to win one. There are also fox pup symbols which can turn other icons into wilds. Finally, there the option for the SuperBet where you can wager more per spin for reel modifiers.
L: That’s a beautiful set of features mate, what a way to finish. Anything we need to tell our lovely readers before we go?
M: Just that they can play all the games mentioned here on Kerching. If you’re new to the site, don’t forget to check out our promotions page for our latest welcome offer as well as any other current specials.
At Kerching we want our players to have the best time possible which is we would like to remind you to please practise responsible gambling. It is key that you remember all spins in a slot are completely random and never correlate with each other. There won’t ever be a point where you are due a win.
