Snow Wonder Slot Machine
Holiday season winter slots have always been a bit of a puzzle to me. Is there really the huge demand for these games to justify every slot maker having one or more? I guess there must me, and with the humorous play on words from the title ‘no wonder’ to ‘snow wonder’, this is the 3 reel winter season slot from Rival Gaming. While there is nothing particularly dynamic about the game (this is classic slot gaming through and through, you’ll find an attractive and very smooth playing slot in Snow Wonder. The top prize for 3 pieces of holly over the single win-line will give you reason enough to play – the 2500 coin prize.
You’ll find a big set of reels set in the middle of a snowy scene when this game first loads up. The pay table has been moved over to (several) separate screens, which leaves room for bigger and bolder graphics than on most 3 reel games. There is a snowman on the right hand side that becomes animated now and again, his scarf and hat appearing to blow in the win. The reels are semi-transparent, which means you can see details of the tree lined snowy landscape behind them – especially when you hit the (animated snowflake) of the spin button.
Most of the symbols on the reels will be familiar, though their presentation and colouring is unique. Bars and sevens are drawn at a slight angle to the spin of the reels, with distinctive colouring (the bars are a red and white mix). There are also bells, holly (complete with red berries), and pine cone symbols too.
A fairly seasonal tune keeps playing on a loop. This hits about 6 out of 10 on an imaginary annoying scale after 5 minutes, and then climbs from there. When you hit the spin buttons you’ll hear sleigh bells, with computer beeps following for any wins. The winning symbols will flash, though there are no specific animations to look out for.
