Online casino players can take virtual trips to Mexico or a mysterious, gemstone-filled realm thanks to Pumpkin Smash and Crystal Land slots which have just launched this week.
Pumpkin Smash – Yggdrasil Gaming
Based on Mexico’s famous Day of the Dead festivities, Pumpkin Smash is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. There’s a decidedly creepy feel to the design which is dominated by skull symbols. The highlight of the gameplay is the Pumpkin Smash Bonus feature where Pumpkin Smash lives up to its name.
Once triggered, bash the pumpkins to reveal coin prizes of up to 375 times your stake, free spins, multipliers of up to 7x or a combination of all 3. In the Free Spins feature, 1 to 5 bonus symbols will activate the Pumpkin Smash Bonus feature where you can smash up to 10 prizes for more free spins, multipliers up to 7x on a single symbol or up to 875 times your stake as a cash prize.
Boasting high end visuals, a classy, guitar-heavy soundtrack and a (excuse the pun) smashing bonus round, Pumpkin Smash delivers plenty of thrills year-round and not just at Halloween time. Read the Pumpkin Smash slot review for more details.
Crystal Land – Playson
The second new arrival, Crystal Land, is a far more genteel looking affair. Created by Playson, it fuses elements from traditional slots and social games to excellent effect. Played on a 7×7 grid, winning combinations are created by landing clusters of 5 or more matching symbols. Each win removes symbols from the reels and another symbol drop takes place.
Each drop opens up blocked symbols which offer even more chances to win. Look out for the wilds and bombs that replace and remove adjacent symbols. The goal is to open up all 7 rows. Manage that and you’ll trigger the Bonus feature. Played on a new grid, winning symbols are removed like in the base game but no new ones replace them. Each winner is paid as normal.
If you manage to open up a clear path to the bottom of the grid, you can open up a treasure chest and with it multipliers which can send your total win rocketing by up to 9x. Look out too for the potions which help your quest by removing matching symbols from the grid.
Well designed, this hybrid slot works well. If you’re looking for a game that mixes social gameplay with more traditional slots fare, then Crystal Land is certainly a game to consider – visit the Crystal Land slot review for a full insight.
