Easter Surprise Slots

Easter-SurpriseEaster Surprise is your typical holiday themed slot machine, with an Easter Egg hunt being the premise in this case. It was created by the guys from Playtech, the result of their work being a game that has the right design to be enjoyed by a kid going on an Easter Egg hunt, but its cutesy look might not agree with an adult. You don’t see that many slot machines out there with this particular theme, probably because there aren’t that many people that are looking for slots of this type during these holidays, even though they do it when the Christmas period is near.

Prizes of up to $100,000 are awarded in this Playtech slot machine, with its 5 reels & 20 lines hosting scatter and wild symbols, bonus symbols, plus free spins being offered as a result of their appearance.

Features of Easter Surprise

There are bonus games offered in Easter Surprise, as there are free spins accompanied by multipliers, scatter symbols with huge prizes and wilds that also tend to be quite generous.

The Easter Bunny is shown in the wild symbol and he’s offering you a gift in that image. It’s a good choice for a symbol that is capable of giving you the biggest prize that can be obtained through regular combinations, the top jackpot. The appearance of up to five symbols with Easter Bunnies on them will result in payouts of up to 10,000x the line wager. The minimum number of wilds required for a winning combo is two. When it doesn’t count towards its own combinations, the wild can count as one of the other symbols, acting as a substitute for them. The two symbols that can’t use the wild’s powers to their advantage are the bonus and the scatter.

The Gift Box symbol is marked Easter Surprise and it’s quite the pleasant one. You need as many as five of these symbols in scattered positions, to be truly smiling when you see the payout that is offered. The prize will be worth 500 times the amount you’ve used during that round, which takes it to the same value as the wild symbol’s top jackpot. The smallest prize it offers is 2x the bet, for having only two scattered Gift Boxes.

Free Games Feature

Getting 3+ scattered Gift Boxes, anywhere on the slot’s reels, gets you the round of 10 free spins and the x3 multiplier that comes with them. The bonus game’s prizes don’t take advantage of this multiplier, but all the other combinations do, even the wild’s top jackpot. If you get another 3+ scatters, you retrigger this feature with another 10 spins for free.


Easter Eggs Bonus

The basket with Easter eggs is capable of giving you access to the slot’s only bonus game. You have to get a combo of 3+ bonus symbols on an active bet line. Once this requirement is met, you get the Easter Eggs bonus feature.

The next screen presents you with the Easter Bunny, as he’s showing you a basket with six eggs in it. Pick a number of eggs that is identical to the number of bonus symbols that gave you the feature, meaning that there are 3 to 5 picks to be made. Each pick gets you another cash prize.


Betting options and jackpots

Placing a bet in Easter Surprise gives you a couple of decisions to make. First, you need to figure out if you want all the lines active. It will add to the wager size, but it will also give you just as many extra chances to get a prize. The other two choices are regarding the number of coins usable for each line and their denomination. These influence only the value of the prize you do get, but it’s always the same multiple of the line wager, so you get what you put in. You can use 1 to 10 coins per line, with denominations of up to $1, for a total bet of up to $200.

The Easter Rabbit’s gift to you is the equivalent of 10,000 to 100,000 coins, depending on how many you used per line (1 to 10). The cash value goes up to $100,000.

Design and symbols

The design is a cartoonish look at the Easter holiday, specifically at the egg hunt that so many people organize for their children. A green meadow is shown behind the reels, which are completely transparent, while on them the symbols are either playing cards with green bows tied to them, or Egg/Rabbit themed symbols. I find it to be a bit childish, but there aren’t that many slots with this theme out there, so you don’t have too many choices if you enjoy this holiday.

Symbols: Easter Bunny (wild, 10,000x), Bonus Egg Basket (bonus), Game Logo (scatter, 500x the bet), Red Egg (500x), Blue Egg (400x), Yellow Egg (200x), Ace (150x), King (125x), Queen (100x), Jack (75x) and Ten (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s not a game that you will enjoy all year long, but when Easter is right around the corner, it could be a very nice experience. Not a lot of people try to get into the spirit of Easter, so there aren’t too many alternatives with the same theme.

You will find Easter Surprise at any online casino which chooses to use software from Playtech, playable either for free or for real money.
