Chibeasties 2 is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. Playable from 20p to £100 per spin across all devices (such as laptops, iOS and Android amongst others), this is a sequel to the popular Chibeasties where you are lured back to a magical forest with adorable characters.

Visually, Chibeasties 2 is typical of Yggdrasil Gaming – stunning. With high definition graphics and animations, you are taken to a woodland setting which has a tribal feel to it. With 4 Chibeasties characters, the brown one is the most lucrative giving you 250 coins for 5 in combination. The soundtrack comprises of a rhythmic drum which reinforces the tribal connotations.

There’s a Realms feature meaning there are 4 realms in the game (or modes) – when you launch the game, you can choose which realm to play in. You can also change realm at any point (in the base game). Each realm benefits from its own unique wild feature – they are as follows:

  • Expanding Realm – wild symbols expand to take over the whole reel (giving you wild reels).
  • Spreading Realm – wilds that appear create between 1 and 4 additional wilds in random positions on the reels.
  • Teleporting Realm – wilds switch positions with other symbols to give you the best possible winning combination.
  • Mirroring Realm – wilds are mirrored against an X and Y axis which in turn, cuts through reel 3 and creates up to 2 new wild symbols.

There’s also a very lucrative Wild Mutation feature – each spin that has wilds on the reels can trigger this feature. After the wilds perform the feature in their own realm, they can transform into wild symbols from another realm to give you another realm feature! For example, you might have an expanding realm wild which then turns into a transporting realm to give you the best possible win scenario.

Finally, there’s a Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 or more free spins scatters on the reels – you will then receive 7, 15 or 30 free spins. The feature takes places in the realm you were in when you triggered the feature with every win involving a wild giving you a guaranteed wild mutation!

This means every wild win will give you 2 realm features. Finally, you can retrigger the feature, by getting 3 or more scatters during the feature, to give you a possible 60 free spins in total.

Chibeasties 2 is quite simple really and it’s all about the wilds in both the base game and Free Spins feature – I really like the Spreading Realm as you can get up to 4 extra wilds on the reels. Combine that with the Teleporting Realm to give you the best possible winning combo. It’s a medium variance game with balanced wins in both the base game and Free Spins feature – again, superb from Yggdrasil Gaming!
