Tuck into Sunny Scoops a tasty ice cream-themed slot from the ever innovative developer Thunderkick. This foodie delight is a typically well designed 3 reel, 3 row, 14 payline offering that comes with a bonus feature that includes free spins and increasing multipliers. Stakes range from between 10p and £100 per spin.
Sunny Scoops is another visual treat from Thunderkick. Instead of standard reels, Sunny Scoops features a conveyor belt of ice cream cones onto which are dropped dollops of different flavoured scoops of ice cream. The Chocolate Explosion, Golden Honey, Orange Sunset, Sweet Pearfaction, Blueberry Bite, Strawberry Dream and Coffee Crush scoops are whisked off the screen horizontally for each spin.
The main feature on offer in Sunny Scoops is the Bonus Wheel which becomes active when 3 of the same ice creams appear in the same vertical payline. The wheel will spin automatically to reveal a range of multipliers ranging from 2 to 7 times your stake. This can provide a nice little win but what you really want to hit is the flavour symbol which activates the Bonus feature.
Once active, you’ll be transported to a new, themed screen where you’ll receive 10 free spins. The ice cream scoops are piled on top of each other rather than removed after each spin in the bonus round. For every winning spin you’ll be awarded an extra bonus spin and the multiplier will increase by one.
For example, if you have 3 winning spins in a row, the multiplier will go to 3x and you won’t have lost any of your free spins. If the next spin is unsuccessful, the multiplier will reduce by one, in our example, dropping down to 2x. The multipliers can get well into the teens if you get on a good run which can lead to some very decent payouts.
As we’ve come to expect from Thunderkick, Summer Scoops is a feast for the eyes. The graphics are super sharp, all set against a simple blue backdrop which makes everything really easy to see. It’s all complemented by a rather genteel soundtrack reminiscent of a day at the seaside.
In terms of features, it’s all about the Bonus Wheel. The free spins with increasing multiplier can certainly deliver to extremely tasty payouts. With its good looks, fast-paced play and decent bonus round, Summer Scoops should certainly tickle your slots taste buds. If you prefer something a little more traditional, Børk The Berzerker (also by Thunderkick) is recommended.
