Hurdy Gurdy Slots

Hurdy-GurdyA game with a travel theme isn’t exactly something you will find with difficulty, but in this case we get a title like Hurdy Gurdy, which is built around a single country, Netherlands. With various characters, with waffles, windmills, wooden shoes, tulips and cheese, you get a lot of things on the reels that are considered to be specific to this country. The slot was designed by the guys from Wager Gaming and thanks to the high quality design I’m sure you will enjoy playing on it, though the features help out as well.

With a jackpot that is worth $70,000 and with bonus games, multipliers, scatters, free spins and wilds all contributing to the feature list, Hurdy Gurdy tries its best to attract players, and it does a good job at it. The wagers you get to place in this 5 reel slot activate a maximum of 25 lines.

Features of Hurdy Gurdy

You do get all the standard features in the game, meaning a scatter and a wild symbol, plus free spins and their multiplier. On top of that, it also uses a simple bonus game, the kind you make some picks in.

Hurdy seems to be the name of the blonde girl that appears in one of the symbols, and she appears to be the star of the game. She has the role of the wild symbol, so you will be happy about seeing her even without the fact that she’s the most attractive image used on the paytable. The wild’s substitution ability allows it to replace other symbols which are needed in the spots where the wild lands. The substitution only takes place when the rest of the line is occupied by matching icons, so there will be rounds when the wild shows up and nothing happens. The symbol that can’t be replaced with a wild is the Milk Pail scatter. With multiple wilds appearing on a payline, you get paid up to 7,000 coins.


A picture with two Milk Pails is the second most important symbol in Hurdy Gurdy. Its appearance is in random positions, and yet it still gives away prizes and triggers bonus features. It’s the scatter symbol, which explains why it can give away prizes from random positions. A minimum of two symbols are needed to give away the smallest prize of 2x the bet, while the maximum of five triggers 100x the bet.

Free Games Feature

The wild and two other regular symbols work together when it comes to triggering the free spins. The requirement is for the characters called Hurdy, Tulip and Jahn to make appearances on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels, respectively and during the same round.

The reward is a round with 15 spins for free, plus the 3x multiplier that will triple all prizes. The same requirement is in place when it comes to retriggering the free spins.

Pick & Win Feature

The bonus game is started with the help of the scatter symbol. The Milk Pails are needed in at least three positions on the reels, and if that happens you are asked to pick three Milk Pails from the screen and get the prizes each one has for you.

Betting options and jackpots

The 25 lines offered here require just as many coins when the bets are made. You can use a denomination as small as $0.10, or as high as $10, and the result will be a bet that doesn’t go higher than $250.

Hurdy is both the wild symbol and the one that gets you the 7,000 coins of the big jackpot. The cash value for it is at $70,000.

Design and symbols

It’s a gorgeous slot machine, the travel theme being well thought out and realized by Wager Gaming’s designers. It has a lot of things that are common in Netherlands, things that people tend to associate with this country and its people. It’s a gorgeous land, which you can see in the background picture, in cartoon form. Even though the images are not 100% realistic, they are very well done and attractive.
