Online Slot Seasons by Yggdrasil
The Seasons online slot by Yggdrasil is themed to the four seasons, Summer, Winter, Autumn and Spring. It has 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines. Each of the four seasons has its own unique Wild symbol and there is a free spins mode which is launched by three or more scatters.
Free Spins in Seasons
Three or more scatters launch the free spins, the more scatters that pop up on the game screen, the more spins will be launched:
- 3 scatters earn you 7 free spins
- 4 scatters - 15 spins
- 5 scatters - 30 spins
The free spins will be launched in the same season as the one which triggered them. During the round the Wild will appear more frequently. The bet settings remain the same as before this mode was triggered and the round can be relaunched if more scatters appear during free spins.
The Season slot features five bonus symbols. Four of them are Wilds that will not come up on the reels at the same time. Each of them can replace any other symbol on the game screen to create or extend winning combinations. The fifth bonus is the Scatter symbol which activates a bonus game.
Symbols and Multipliers
The regular symbols pay for combos of 3, 4 or 5 identical pictures, landing on neighbouring reels along an active payline starting with the leftmost reel. The symbols are:
- A strawberry
- Pine cones
- A pink leaf, shaped like a spade
- A red leaf, shaped like a heart
- A green leaf, shaped like a club
- A turquoise leaf, shaped like a diamond
Seasons Special Feature
The Seasons slot has a special feature, involving the four seasons Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn which are used as game modes. The Seasons change randomly after at least 10 spins but no more than 49. Each season has its own unique Wild symbol with special features.
During the Winter season, a hare plays the role of the Wild symbol which duplicates itself anywhere on the reels to ensure that you'll get the best possible win.
The Spring season has an owl as the Wild, when it appears on the reels you will receive a random number of free spins. During the re-spin, the owl randomly moves one step either straight or diagonally which repeats until the owl disappears from the game screen.
The deer plays the role of the Wild symbol during the Summer season. When it appears on the reels, each of the four adjacent boxes in a cross pattern, turns into a Wild symbols with the word Wild on them.
A fox plays the role of the Wild in the Autumn season. It pays a random multiplier when it appears on the reels that applies to any prizes won during the spin where the fox appeared. The more wilds that pop up on the game screen, the higher the multiplier you win:
- 1 Wild pays from 2 to 5 times your bet
- 2 Wilds - from 3 to 6
- 3 Wilds - from 4 to 7
- 4 Wilds - from 5 to 8
- 5 Wilds - from 7 to 10
Unlike some online slots that you can play for free, you cannot create a combination with 2 symbols in the Seasons slot.
How to Play the Seasons Slot
The bet per line is fixed and is equal to one coin. The number of paylines is also fixed, like in most of the slots by Yggdrasil, this slot has twenty.
The total bet is determined by multiplying the number of paylines by the bet per line, so the total bet is 20 coins. The coin value determines the cost of one game coin in credits and affects the total bet. It ranges from 0.01 to 5 credits, so if the total bet is always twenty coins and one coin costs two credits, the total bet is 40 credits. The total bet ranges from 0.20 to 100 credits.
Seasons comes with the following control buttons:
- Max Bet - sets the maximum bet of 100 credits and if you hit this button again the total bet returns to its initial size
- Spin - activates a single spin of the reels and turns into the Stop button as the reels are spinning so you can stop the reels instantly
- Autoplay - activates the auto spin mode, you can select the desired number of autospins and then the reels will start spinning, the auto spins stop as soon as the preset number of spins has finished or if you click the Autoplay button again
The control panel includes the following windows:
- Win - shows the number of winnings for the latest spin
- The Balance section - displays your current game balance which can be viewed in both credits and coins
All the payline patterns are displayed in the paytable. Hit the "+" button first and then click the Paytable button to open it. You only win a reward for the highest combination.
