If you think of 3 reel slots and imagine dull games with the same old classic symbols on the reels – then it is time to think again. Eggstravaganza is a 3 reel slot with a difference from Rival Gaming. This game is themed on Easter, with chocolate, eggs, bunnies and chicks all part of the action. It has a very lively and upbeat tune in the background which would not be out of place in a children’s TV cartoon. The colours are bright, and there are some nice little touches including animations of chicks walking over the top of the reels when you score a win. Unusually for a 3 reel slot, Eggstravaganza has a free spins bonus game too.
The colour scheme involves pastel colours, predominantly pinks and greens. You’ll find the logo in the upper right part of the screen, this I a bright pink Eggstravaganza word over the backdrop of a countryside scene. There are some bright coloured eggs in the bottom right corner of the logo area – bringing to mind an Easter egg hunt. Below this are the reels. These are transparent, with the woven-effect background staying in place while the reels turn on top. Many of the symbols have an egg shape in the background and include chocolate bunnies, chicks, what appears to be a chocolate butterfly and a basket full of Easter eggs. The Easter bunny is a special symbol – triggering the free spins bonus feature.
The pay table is to the left hand side of the screen, and like with many Rival Gaming 3-reel slots, this does take up a lot of the screen. Even with all this space, the icons are on the small side.
While you spin a fast-paced plodding tune accompanies you. As the reels spin a drum roll plays (this is not as annoying as you might think), there is a single drum beat for each reel as it stops. If you get a win you will hear a comedy ‘boing’ sound – which will also trigger the chicks walking animation.
