Progressive Jackpot: No
Part of the charm of visiting Moscow is buying some of those little dolls which are contained inside each other. Those are actually called Matryoshka dolls, and those items are the inspiration behind this unique online slot developed by Thunderkick called Babushkas.
Babushkas is a five-reel slot with 17 fixed paylines and the transparent reels spin against a backdrop of a patterned tapestry with a Balalaika tune accompanying the action.
But before you make your way to Moscow, you must first adjust your stake. Coin value ranges from 0.10 to 100. The “Autoplay” option allows the reels to turn without any pause, for a pre-determined number of times. Once you are ready, just press the “Spin” button.
Babushkas provides gamers with a unique look that is taken from Russian folklore and at the same time, delivers to players a dynamic, 3D environment.
The background of the game looks a lot like a close-up on an abstract knitting pattern, while the transparent reels let the symbols flow freely in the foreground.
Combine all that with lively background music and surprising reel animations, and the final result is rather remarkable.
Babushkas is unlike any other game players have had the chance to play in the past. When talking about the game’s graphic quality, the game will catch many players’ eye and reel them in for hours on end.
This title is a one-of-a-kind slot game that combines great graphics with dynamic and easy gameplay that all players will be able to enjoy. On the other hand, the standard rewards are fairly low in comparison to other slot games. Players will have to take advantage of the chain reactions provided by the gameplay to end up with massive wins!
The standard symbols are all dolls of differing sizes and colors – yellow, orange, red, purple, pink, blue and green. The wild symbol is an enclosed doll with a big “W” on the front and it substitutes for all others. It also triggers various bonuses that are explained in the section below.
This occurs within normal gameplay. Whenever you land a winning combo any neighboring symbols of one lower value will be upgraded to match that combo if a new payline can be formed. A payout is made each time and this process keeps on going until no more upgrades/new paylines can be made.
If all symbols eventually match there’s be one upgrade for all of them. If they reach the maximum value (yellow doll), then they’ll all change to ghost symbols and you’ll receive 100x your stake.
Wild Mystery Bonus
The wild doll only appears on reel three and when it does, it may spin to reveal a star on the upper half. This will award one of three features:
Scare Bear = the lowest value symbols on the reels will be upgraded once, twice or three times depending on the size of the bear in the wild symbol.
Charm Bear = all symbols will upgrade one level.
Dance Bear = seven free spins are awarded with a new wild symbol on reel three on each spin.
