No trip to the seaside is complete without an ice cream and there’s a very tasty one on offer in 99 Time, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Eyecon. Look out for wild wins that are doubled, a pick’em round where each selection offers awards of up to 100 times your stake as well as a free spins round where all payouts are trebled. Play from between 25p and £12.50 per spin.
A simple beach scene is the setting for 99 Time – with the sea, a pier and a carousel in the background, the reels include a selection of goodies you’d find on sale from an ice cream van. There are 10 different ice cream cone and wafer combinations in all. The most rewarding is the classic Mr Whippy-style 99, complete with flake – land 5 of these and you’ll win 200 times your stake.
The ice cream van is the wild – it substitutes for everything apart from the scatter symbols and doubles the payouts of any winning paylines in which it appears. 99 Time comes with Eyecon’s regular offering of features:
Free Games feature – land 3, 4 or 5 of the ice cream van wild anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll be awarded 15, 20 or 25 free spins. All winning combinations are boosted by a 3x multiplier with the payout trebled. Re-triggers are possible here too with a massive 400 free spins in total available.
Ice Cream Maker feature – this is triggered by landing 3 or more of the ice cream man scatter. You then get to play ice cream man and try and make a classic ice cream. Pick from the selection of cones, flakes, wafers, fruit and sprinkles. Behind each lies a bonus prize of up to 100 times your total stake.
We’re in familiar Eyecon territory with 99 Time – the imagery here is simple but nicely done, with just the occasional hint of Greensleeves playing in the background to herald a winning spin. As usual, the features are excellent. The 3x multiplier can have a big impact in the free spins round and the Ice Cream Maker feature can deliver some very tasty awards.
“Stop me and buy one” is a message often found on ice cream vans – in the case of 99 Time, we’re certainly happy to do so. I also recommend you take a look at Thunderkick’s Sunset Delight which has a similar theme.
