Get on your woollies and head into a jolly winter wonderland in Snow Globe. It’s a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Blueprint Gaming that’s overflowing with extras including transforming symbols, stacked and shifting wilds, respins, free spins with sticky wilds and pick me rounds. Play on all devices from 20p to £500 per spin.
The first decision you’ll have to make when firing up Snow Globe is whether to play with the 3 or 4 row machine. The 3 row machine offers extra base game action with increased bonus features if you opt for the 4 row game engine. Either way, the design is the same.
The reels are set within a snow globe and include icy looking A to J symbols alongside acorns, sleighs, squirrels and a moose. The top paying standard symbol is the Snow Globe logo that awards 25 times your stake if you land 5 across a payline a line. The snowman is the wild – it offers up to 25 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
When it comes to bonus features, there are plenty of extras on offer here, starting with the Snowman Triggered extras which can land at random on any base game spin:
- Snowball Spin feature – this one is only available if you’re playing using the 3 row game engine. The snowman sparks into life and lobs snowballs at the reels. Each time a snowball hits, a matching symbol is revealed. A new payout is then made with the matching symbols in play.
- Snow Cannon feature – the snowman gets out his big gun and simply blasts wilds onto the reels.
- Stacked Super Snow Wilds feature – there’s a loose connection in the lights around the snow globe. The snowman fixes them and in the process, expands any wilds on view so they fill their reel. A payout is made, they then shift 1 position to the left. The process is repeated until they drop off the reels.
- Bonus Respin feature – land 2 scatters but just miss out on the 3rd then the snowman can trigger a respin to give you another shot at triggering the Pick a Globe Bonus feature (more info below).
That Pick a Globe Bonus feature is triggered by landing 3 Bonus symbols on the same spin – choose a globe to see which of the 4 features you’ve been awarded:
Mystery Snow Barrel feature – this a bit like the TV gameshow Deal Or No Deal. Choose barrels – hope to land a red prize on the right of the screen as these are potentially much higher than the blue awards on the left. Find a red or blue snowman and you’ll move to the top of the red or blue columns. Pick a final barrel which will reveal Win Blue, Win Red or Win Both.
Snowman Bonus feature – this is a straight up pick me round. Each snowman selected reveals a multiplier prize which is applied to your total stake. Keep picking until you land a Collect or Big Money. The latter will give you bigger cash prizes.
Sticky Snowball Free Spins feature – these take place on a new 5×4 machine that offers 40 paylines. You’ll receive 10 free spins with sticky wilds. The snowman can randomly wake up and lob more snowballs at the reels to create even more sticky wilds.
Super Snow Free Spins feature – choose from the snowflakes to determine how many free spins you’ve been awarded and which symbols can turn into top paying symbols. Look out for the mini snowman who can appear on reel 5 and increase a multiplier by 1, up to a maximum of 10x. Double height wilds are also in play here.
Snow Globe is just what we’ve come to expect from a Blueprint Gaming slot. The cartoon visuals are nicely done and the jaunty soundtrack fits nicely. Few developers pack as many extras into their slots as Blueprint Gaming and this winter wonderland is no exception. There’s a great variety on offer here both in the base game and once you trigger the Pick a Globe Bonus feature.
If you fancy playing a well-designed slot that offers a huge range of extras, then it’s certainly worth giving this Snow Globe a good shake – look out for the Super Snow Free Spins feature which gives you double stacked wilds with multipliers up to 10x.
I also like the Stacked Super Snow Wilds feature where shifting expanding wilds can lead to huge wins. If you like the snowy theme, NextGen Gaming’s Snowflakes and Quickspin’s Northern Sky are recommended.
