Meet some strange alien creatures who call the skies their home in Cloud Tales. Powered by iSoftBet, this 5 reel, 9 payline slot comes with spreading wilds, symbol switches with a 4x multiplier, wilds with multipliers plus wild reels and re-spins. Playable on all devices, take to the air from between 9p and 45p per spin.
Visually, Cloud Tales has a cutesy feel – the reels are set against a cloud filled backdrop and pastel shades dominate. Joining the lower value playing card symbols are a quartet of unusual, animal-like creatures. The top payer is the furry blue beast who’ll net you 1,000 coins if you land 5 in a line.
In addition to the standard wild, look out for the Mushroom Island symbol which also substitutes for everything else. Mushroom Island only appears on the middle reel but can turn other symbols into wilds whenever it lands – this is known as the Mushroom Island feature.
Look out too for the Mystery Eggs which only appear on the middle 3 reels but can award a number of extras. First up is the Symbol Switch feature – the reels will be shuffled to form a better winning combination. That new payout will then be boosted by a 4x multiplier and quadrupled.
Wilds are a central theme of this slot. You have the Wilds + Multiplier feature where the Mystery Egg symbol will turn wild. That’s not all though as it will also offers a multiplier prize to boost your payline payout.
Then there’s the Wild Reels feature where up to 5 reels can be transformed into fully stacked wilds. Lastly, you have the Wild Reels + Respin feature where the reel turns into a stacked wild as well as offering you 1 respin with the stacked wild frozen in place. Further eggs also become sticky stacked wilds with more respins awarded.
You’ll notice that there aren’t any free spins on offer – that’s a shame. Cloud Tales does have plenty of things to recommend though. The Mystery Egg features come along at various intervals and offer plenty of decent winning opportunities.
We found the variance to be in the medium range – the graphics are nicely done with the on-screen action complemented by a soundtrack that matches the fantastical theme. The cuddly theme of Cloud Tales won’t be to everyone’s taste. If you can see past that, then there are some interesting things on offer here making this trip to the sky one worth making. If you like games based on wilds, NetEnt’s EggOMatic offers just yet as well as a weird theme.
