Take a look into the crystal ball. Is there a jackpot in store? There are plenty of ways to win one in Gypsy, a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from High5 Games. It comes with double symbols that offer hefty payouts as well as a bonus feature where you can win up to 200 free games. Stakes range from 50p up to £500 per spin.
Gypsy celebrates the life of a female fortune teller and features a selection of carriages, tarot cards and crystal balls on the reels. The fortune teller herself can appear as both a single and a split symbol. This means it’s possible to hit 10-symbol combinations which offer suitably large payouts of 1,000 times your line bet.
The Gypsy logo is the wild and substitutes for every other symbol apart from the bonus. The wild also counts as two Gypsy girls which can offer a tidy little boost to your payouts. There are also the standard playing card symbols from ace to jack which offer smaller payouts of between 5 and 75 coins.
Find a trio of Bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you’ll trigger the Free Games Bonus feature. Here you’ll be awarded 10 free spins but there’s plenty of scope to add if you hit the bonuses on the middle 3 reels. The extra spins are added in chunks of 5, up to a maximum of 200 free spins!
Gypsy comes with the 243 ways to win game engine which offers payouts when matching symbols hit on adjacent columns. 50 coins will get you access to the full 243 payout options.
The imagery on show in Gypsy is pretty good – the symbols on the reels are extremely detailed and nice and clear against the black backdrop. It all has a slightly Gothic feel which matches the theme nicely. As does the soundtrack which offers something more than the generic offerings sometimes found in Bally/High5 Games collaborations.
The features aren’t the most complex you’ll find but the split symbols and 243 ways to win game engine keep the pace flowing at a fair old lick. Throw in the free spins feature and the chance to trigger even more extra games and there are plenty of good reasons to get your fortune told by this mysterious Gypsy.
It’s a medium variance slot so is nicely balanced and one of High5 Games’ better slots in my opinion. Gypsy is a popular land based game and I’m sure online players will love it too. Graphically, for some reason it reminds me of Golden Goddess by IGT which is also a bricks and mortar favourite.
