The works of one of the world’s greatest artists take centre stage in Van Gogh, a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from High 5 Games. This art themed title comes with tumbling reels and a free spins feature. Play from between 20p and £200 per spin.
As you’d hope from a slot based on the great Dutch painter, Van Gogh impresses visually. Symbols on the reels include a trio of the artist’s most famous works – Blue Irises in Vase, The Starry Night and Self Portrait 1887. The latter is the biggest paying painting in the base game, offering 1,000 coins for a 5 symbol combination.
Find 5 of the Van Gogh logo on a payline and you’ll win 5,000 coins. Joining them are the standard playing card symbols from A to Q as well as a wild that substitutes for all other symbols apart from the bonus.
Van Gogh comes with the Tumbling Reels feature – after every successful spin, the winning symbols will disappear and be replaced by the new symbols from above, offering a second chance to secure a win. The tumbles continue as long as there’s a winning combination on the reels and can provide a nice boost to your winning chances without eating into your paid spins. This feature can be found in IGT’s Da Vinci Diamonds which was, ironically, created by High 5 Games (for online use by IGT!).
Van Gogh also comes with a Free Spins Bonus feature which is triggered by hitting 3 or more bonus symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3 – you’ll be awarded 6 free spins. During the feature, the 3 paintings will all be classed as scatters, meaning you can find them anywhere on the reels to hit a win.
You can re-trigger more free spins during the feature too – 3 bonus symbols will get you an extra 2, 3 or 4 free spins. Four bonuses and it’s 4, 6, 8 or 10 free spins. Find five and the free spins total will be boosted by 6, 8, 10, 12 or 15 freebies. All told, a maximum of 300 free spins are possible here.
Van Gogh is a pretty simple affair – the tumbling reels keep the pace high in the base game, offering the chance of multiple payouts from a single spin. The variance is low, making it a good choice for players looking for plenty of play from a limited bankroll.
This slot may not be a masterpiece like the source material, but if you’re an art-loving slots players you’ll find plenty to enjoy here. Alternatively, you can play the aforementioned Da Vinci Diamonds by IGT or the humorous Pablo Picasslot from Leander Games.
