Leander Games has got out the easels, oils and brushes to created Pablo Picasslot, a 5 reel, 20 payline art themed slot. This jokey offering comes with expanding wilds as well as pick me and free spins bonus round. Get daubing from between 20p and £20 per spin.
Set in against an art gallery backdrop, Pablo Picasslot has a comical feel. Our hero, Pablo Picasslot, looks like the stereotypical eccentric artist, complete with beret and goatee beard – the light-hearted theme continues on the reels which include cartoon style paintbrushes, paints and easels as well as brightly coloured playing card symbols.
There are plenty of features on show in this arty offering – hitting most regularly is the Painted Wilds feature. Whenever a frame appears, the symbols inside it will turn into a famous painting, complete with dodgy moustaches scribbled on the faces. More importantly, those symbols will be turned into wilds.
The frames can appear over 3 symbols, horizontally, vertically and diagonally, and can hit on up to 9 symbols simultaneously. Look out for famous works such as the Mona Lisa, The Scream, Van Gogh’s Self Portrait and American Gothic, all sporting some dodgy facial hair.
Find 3 bonus treasure chest symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you’ll trigger the Masterpieces feature – choose from a selection of paintings to reveal keys which will unlock the treasure chests and hopefully open up a decent cash bonus.
Pablo Picasslot also comes with a Free Spins Bonus feature – find the free spins bonus symbol (Pablo himself) on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you’ll be awarded 8 free spins. At least 1 picture frame wild will land on the reels during every free spin, boosting your chances of securing a decent payout.
Compared to other artistic themed slots such as IGT’s Da Vinci’s Diamonds and High5 Games’ Van Gogh, Pablo Picasslot is a much more amusing offering – don’t be mistaken into thinking that just because this slot has a comic theme that it doesn’t offer much in the gameplay stakes.
The pick me and free spins are perfectly solid offerings – they won’t hit very often though. The Painted Wilds feature is a nice spin on a slots staple though. They come along regularly and can provide a handy boost if you manage to hit multiple frames on a single spin. Pablo Picasslot may not be a masterpiece but it’s certainly easy on the eye and delivers where it counts with a decent range of features.
