A beautiful woodland is the setting for Seasons, a visually stunning, nature-themed slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. It comes with a quartet of special wild extras that vary depending on the season as well as a bonus round that offers up to 30 free spins. With 5 reel and 20 paylines, stakes start from just 20p per spin.

Yggdrasil Gaming has a deserved reputation for creating lovely looking slots and Seasons maintains those lofty standards. Symbols on the reels include an assortment of leaves, toadstools, pine combs and berries. They’re expertly done as usual. Likewise, the jaunty soundtrack which is perfectly in keeping with the nature theme. The gameplay is silky smooth making Seasons a joy to play.

Seasons plays out using 4 different game modes, each 1 based on 1 of the 4 seasons. The season changes after every 10 spins. As well as new visuals, each season offers a different set of extra wild features.

In winter, the Hare Wild will duplicate, moving to the position in the reels which will create the optimum winning pattern.

In spring, the Owl Wild will deliver a re-spin. During that extra spin, the owl will move one space, vertically, horizontally or diagonally. The re-spins will keep on coming as long as there’s an owl somewhere on the reels.

The Deer Wild takes centre stage in the summer, expanding to form a cross pattern and adding a trio of new wilds when it lands.

Multipliers are on offer from the Fox Wild in autumn. The more wilds that land, the bigger the potential multiplier. 1 wild and it’s a 2x to 5x multiplier. 2 and it’s 3x to 6x. 3 offer 4x to 7x and 4 give 5x to 8x multipliers. Land 5 wilds in autumn mode and you can expect a multiplier boost of between 7x and 10x!

Seasons also comes with a standard Free Spins feature – land 3 free spin symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger 7 free spins: 4 scatters and they’ll increase to 15. A full 5 get you 30 free spins. Now, the feature plays out in the same season as the spin that triggered it so there’s a possibility of 10x multipliers from the Autumn season. Furthermore, wild symbols are more plentiful in the Free Spins feature too!

The different wild features keep the action bouncing along – when combined with the free spins feature, they can produce some impressive results. On the surface, a nature themed slot could have been a little dull. Yggdrasil Gaming’s combination of sleek design and solid gameplay make Season a winner though, any time of the year. I also recommend you play Casino Zeppelin or Vikings Go Wild (by Yggdrasil Gaming) which are superb and, more importantly, innovative.
