Enjoy some virtual retail therapy in Shopping Spree, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Eyecon. This trip to the mall comes with wilds that double payouts and a bonus feature that awards up to 240 free spins with all payouts trebled. Try and fill your trolley from between 25p and £12.50 per spin.
Like many slots from Eyecon, the design in Shopping Spree is pretty simple. The images are drawn in a basic, cartoon style. On the reels, you’ll see 4 different discount symbols, all of which award up to 100 coins. Next come the gift box and the tea and cake which pay up to 125 coins followed by the ring and perfume bottle which pay up to 250 coins. The lipstick offers up to 450 coins with the high heels and necklace the top standard payers – land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline and you’ll win 2, 25, 150 and 950 coins.
The female shopper is the wild – she substitutes for everything apart from the scatter. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5of these in combination and you’ll get 10, 200, 2,000 or 9,500 coins. Whenever the wild forms part of a winning combination with the standard symbols, the payout is doubled.
Shopping Spree comes with a Free Games feature – to trigger it, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the handbag scatter. As well as a payout of 5, 20 or 450 times your total stake, you’ll also be awarded 15 free spins. All payouts during the feature are trebled. Find 3 or more scatters on the same spin and the free spins are re-triggered – you can do this up to 15 times with a whopping 240 free spins available.
A day at the shopping centre is pretty much our idea of hell – does Shopping Spree prove any more entertaining? The design is certainly nothing special but that’s the norm for Eyecon’s slots. The gameplay is simple too. The double wild payouts help the base game tick along and the free spins round is decent enough thanks to the trebling multiplier.
We’d have liked to have seen Eyecon’s pick’em and match bonus rounds which have proved popular in some of their other slots but are absent here. Shopping Spree isn’t a bad slot. Like a day at the mall though, it’s a bit dull. This is a slot for shopaholics only with potential payouts of up to 1,140 times your stake on each spin. I’d rather play their most popular game, Fluffy Favourites.
