Winter Berries is tasty little fruit-flavoured slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. It’s a 5 reel, 25 payline title that comes with frozen wilds, re-spins and expanding multipliers. Have a nibble from between 25p and £50 per spin.
The reels in Winter Berries are full of fruity goodness. You’ll see a selection of luscious looking blueberries, redcurrants, loganberries and the like. The yellow berry (we’re not precisely what variety it is) is the biggest payer, offering 500 coins if you find 5 in a payline.
Winter Berries comes with just 2 main features but they’re both crackers. The first arrives after every successful spin. The 3 or more symbols that form the winning combination will be frozen in place and the reels will spin again, offering another chance of a payout. The reels will keep on spinning as long as another of the same symbol as the frozen ones appears.
In addition to the re-spins, there are also multipliers on offer. Fill successive columns from the left hand side and you’ll be awarded an increasing multiplier. Fill two rows and your win will be doubled. Fill three and paylines will be trebled. Four, yes, you’ve guessed it, your win will be quadrupled.
Fill all five columns and you’ll receive a very chunky 5x multiplier. The frozen wilds really help to fill up the columns helping the multipliers gallop along in a relatively short space of time.
If you like volatile action then you’ll find plenty to enjoy in Winter Berries as it is a high variance slot. Very big wins are certainly possible but you can go through your money pretty quickly so some careful bankroll management is required, as well as some patience.
The pace is uniformly fast, especially if you opt for autoplay in the turbo mode. The graphics and animation are excellent, as is the catchy, atmospheric soundtrack (a variation on a Finnish polka apparently). Put it all together and stir in the potential for some very impressive jackpots and Winter Berries becomes a very tasty proposition. I recommend you also Draglings and Cyrus the Virus by Yggdrasil Gaming.
