Garden Party Slot Review
Garden Party has a land-based history as it’s been a very popular slot game in land-based casinos across the US. It has 5 reels and 1,024 ways to win as it uses MultiWay Xtra wagering. The theme is soft with an enchanting art feeling. You can play from 50p a spin to a whopping £250 a spin. The main attraction is the free spins feature where you choose from 5 different free spins/multipliers options.
The MultiWay Xtra feature allows you 1,024 ways to win on every single spin. You will play 50 coins at a time and the MultiWay Xtra symbols reward you if you match symbols that are in adjacent columns to one another. You can also match more than 1 symbols per column and that will multiply you win amount. The Wild symbol will replace all symbols but the Gnome Bonus scatter symbol.
The best thing about Garden Party is the Garden Gnome Bonus feature – this is activated by seeing 3 or more Garden Gnome bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. What you will see once you trigger the feature is unique and equally superb. You have 5 options to choose from with each option having a different free spins and multiplier value – the options you have are:
- 5 Free Spins with a 20x multiplier
- 10 Free Spins with a 15x multiplier
- 15 Free Spins with a 10x multiplier
- 20 Free Spins with a 5x multiplier
- 30 Free Spins with a 3x multiplier
You can play the feature with as little as 5 free spins but it comes with a huge 20x multiplier or as many as 30 free spins with a 3x multiplier – it’s up to you. I would go for option 2 or 3 personally. I quite like the thought of 10 free spins with a huge 15x multiplier though! Furthermore, you can retrigger the 5 options again by getting 3 or more Garden Gnome symbols during the free spins. You can actually retrigger the feature up to 3 times.
Garden Party is a medium variance game in my opinion as the potential for big wins in the feature is there but in reality doesn’t really happen – I have got plenty of small wins with the very rare big win over 100 times my stake. Maybe it’s a game I should persist with to hit that huge win but IGT have produced many other great slots which I prefer playing.
