Based on the life of one of the world’s greatest artists, Van Gogh is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from STHLM Gaming and Relax Gaming. Superbly designed, it comes with plenty of extras too. Look out for blocks of wilds as well as a bonus round that awards free spins with multipliers, symbols removed and added wilds. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 10p and £100 per spin.

As you’d hope from an art-themed slot, the design in Van Gogh is very nicely done. The reels are set against a backdrop of Van Gogh’s Bedroom at Arles painting. There you’ll find lower value A to J symbols as well as 5 painting by the Dutch master. The best of them is sunflowers which pays 10, 25 or 100 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

The self portrait of Van Gogh is the wild. This can appear in 1×2, 2×1, 2×2 or even 3×3 blocks. It replaces all other symbols bar the scatter. Splashes of colours can appear on any symbol. Collect these to add extra modifiers once you trigger the Van Gogh Free Spins feature:

  • Purple Splash – each 1 of these adds 1 free spin to your total. Collect 11 for the maximum 15 free spins.
  • Orange Splash – each 1 of these adds a multiplier. Collect 6 for the maximum 7x boost.
  • Green Splash – every green splash collected adds an extra wild. You can add up to 5 of these which appear on different reels.
  • Blue Splash – this removes the lower value royal symbols.

Land 3 or more of the easel on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Van Gogh Free Spins features, complete with all of the modifiers that you’ve collected from the colour splashes.

We’ve been a bit underwhelmed by many art-themed slots but Van Gogh impressed us. The visuals are top notch and there’s a cracking range of extras on offer. We enjoyed some top results thanks to the blocks of wilds in the base game. The modifiers can combine to excellent affect in the Van Gogh Free Spins features too – you can win up to 14,000 times your stake on each free spin if you get a 7x multiplier!

If you’re an art lover, then Van Gogh is among the best we’ve seen in this genre. Even if you’re idea of hell is traipsing round a gallery, the features available here make this well worth a spin. I also recommend you try Relax Gaming’s Erik the Red which is their first solo slot.
