Bear Tracks is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot powered by Novomatic. Playable from 40p to £100 per spin on compatible desktop, mobile and tablet devices, bears are on the loose in this wildlife themed offering. With koala, brown, panda and polar bears, your aim is to follow the bear tracks in order to win big.
Set against a mountain backdrop, symbols on the reels include polar bears, black bears, brown bears, koala bears and grizzly bears (oddly). As well as card symbols A, K, Q, J and 10, the Bear Tracks logo symbol is the wild also the highest value symbol which gives you 500 times your line bet if you get 5 on a payline. All symbols can appear stacked as Bear Tracks benefits from Ultra Stacks.
Look out for the Bonus symbol taking over the 1st reel – when it does, it will remain locked rewarding you with a free re-spin. As long as more Bonus symbols appear, they also remain fixed with more re-spins awarded. This is known as the Bear Trap feature.
If you manage to cover all reels with the Bonus symbol, you will trigger the Free Games with Bear Trap feature – you will then receive 15 free spins. When you fill the 1st reel with the same bear symbol, the Bear Trap feature is initiated with the symbols on reel 1 locking in place – you can get numerous re-spins as long as the symbol carries on appearing. This doesn’t affect your free spins tally.
Now, on your last free spin, you can retrigger the feature giving you a further 15 free spins – there’s a whopping 150 free spins to be won in total! I found Bear Tracks to be a medium variance game with the Bear Trap feature giving you big wins in both the base game and free spins feature. Despite the monotonous soundtrack and average graphics, the playability is superb and the potential for big wins is there. If you want something a little higher variance, check out the Novomatic slots section which offers you plenty.
