Mexico’s Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) festival is the inspiration for Pumpkin Smash, the latest release from Yggdrasil Gaming that has just gone live exclusively at Betsafe Casino.
It’s a typically bright and bold slot from Yggdrasil Gaming that’s played using a classic 5 reel, 20 payline game engine. 1 of the main traditions of the Day of the Dead fiesta is smashing pumpkins to reveal prizes – it’s that tradition that forms the basis of the bonus feature here.
The Pumpkin Smash Bonus feature is triggered by landing 2 or more bonus symbols on the same spin. You’ll be awarded 1 pumpkin for each bonus symbol from the triggering spin. Each pumpkin can award anything from between 2 and 20 prizes. The bigger the pumpkin, the bigger the potential awards.
Those prizes include free spins, a multiplier of between 2x and 7x on a specific symbol throughout the free spins round and instant win prizes of between 5 and 2,000 coins. Remember, each pumpkin offers at least 2 prizes so there are plenty of combinations on offer. You can land the feature from within the Free Spins feature too. Landing 3 bonus symbols guarantees you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature.
Yggdrasil Gaming’s slots are usually feasts for the senses and this one certainly lives up to expectations. The images are bright and bold but very nicely drawn. You’ll hear classical Spanish guitars and a mariachi style backing track playing as you spin.
The feature round is a little unusual but can deliver some top action if you land a good number of triggering pumpkins. If you want a break from the usual vampires, ghosts and zombies this Halloween then Pumpkin Smash offers a very entertaining alternative.
Take it for a spin exclusively at Betsafe Casino – if you’re new to the site, you can get deposit bonuses worth up to £1,000 on your first 3 deposits as well as 35 big spins (worth £1 each) and 25 free spins on the classic slot Gonzo’s Quest.
