Garden Party Review
IGT exudes their ability to produce simple-looking though complex online slot games with utmost effectiveness. By this, we primarily refer to the fact that Multiway Extra feature makes its comeback and Free Spins got a whole new dimension in Garden Party! The artful expressiveness of simple day in a flowery Joyland is an extension of a land casino classic into a virtual world. The theme will not be everyone’s cup of tea, but hey – some of the best things out there is an acquired taste.
With that in mind, we sure hope an insane number of paylines is according to your tastes, because there sure is a lot of those – 1024 over 5 reels, because left to right and right to left winning ways are an integral part of this game, as well. A plethora of payout options is a fantastic thing on its own; however, this is a mid-volatility game meaning that really big wins are possible but relatively hard to achieve.
The array of playing symbols covers the usuals like letter and numbers, whilst those unique to this game are a flower-adorned straw hat, a fountain (a jackpot), a bunch of roses, a butterfly and a sun clock. The game logo is a wild (appearing on all reels except first), while a garden gnome is a bonus. The sights and sounds are as springy and exuberating as they come – a garden abundant with flora and foliage, with fireflies scattered through the air, is a backdrop for a colorful, vibrant reel. Charming flute music is laid back and somber as the game goes, but come bonus round, it gets up-tempo and very, very Irish.
Once your senses recover from being flooded with scents and colors, it may be a good thing to make yourself aware of special feature the game offers. Most impressive of which are Free Spins. Landing three of more garden gnomes will bring up something truly remarkable: a choice between five different types of Free Spins – 5 free spins with a 20x multiplier, 10 free spins with 15x, 15 free spins with 10x, 20 free spins with 5x and 30 free spins with 3x multiplier. Getting more gnomes during Free Spin mode will win some additional spins so that you might be there a while.
You don’t have to be way into horticulture to appreciate Garden Party. The staggering number of paylines, some of the finest Free Spin features we’ve ever seen, cute visuals and music…what more can a casual player hope for?
