It’s not often that photography is the theme of an online slot but that’s what’s on offer in Snapshot, a 5 reel, 20 payline game from Realistic Games. Featuring simple design, it comes with a bonus feature that awards 10 free spins. Look out for the Snap Shot logo which doubles your total free spins payout when it lands on the middle reel. Say cheese on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.
The visuals in Snapshot are cartoon-style – think holiday pics rather than photographic portraits. Set within Realistic Games’ usual game cabinet, the reels appear as rolls of film. On them are A to 10 playing cards as well as a trio of symbols you’d find on a camera. In expanding order of value are the magnify, delete and scroll symbols which offer top payouts of 400, 600 and 800 coins respectively if you land 5 on a payline.
The wild has the potential to be the most rewarding symbol – it does its usual job of substituting for all other symbols. Land 3, 4 or 5 wilds on a payline and you’ll pocket 700, 5,000 or 10,000 times your line bet.
The other camera lense style symbol is the scatter – landing 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels awards a payout of 1, 10 or 125 times your total stake. You’ll also trigger the game’s Free Spins Bonus feature where you’ll be awarded 10 free spins.
Before the feature begins, all of your scatter and payline wins from the triggering spin are added to the total win column. The symbol you’ll be hoping to see here is the rainbow coloured Snap Shot. When it lands on the middle reel, it doubles the total win. A few of these in quick succession can quickly get the coins flowing.
Snapshot isn’t exactly a thing of beauty – the light-hearted imagery works well enough though. We’ve sometimes grumbled about the features offered by Realistic Games but the feature in Snapshot is a good one, hitting regularly and delivering consistent rewards. The RTP of 95.11% is on the skinny side and we’d put the variance in the medium range.
It won’t be troubling any award panels but if you get lucky with the free spins double up, Snapshot can turn out to be a real picture. I would much rather play Realistic Games’ 6 Appeal though.
