Following the tale of Rumpelstiltskin by the Grimm brothers, Rumpel Wildspins incorporates some excellent graphics and exciting gameplay to immerse the gamer in this fairytale land. As with the short story, this slot is all about winning and obtaining gold. However, instead of spinning it out of cloth, the spins on the slot make the money flow. An atmospheric game, it is set on a moonlit background and dark reels.
A five reel slot with just twenty pay lines, this Novomatic game incorporates both standard and themed symbols. The standard lower values are represented by playing card values from 9 up to A. the higher value icons are a gold necklace, diamond ring, gold bars and the miller’s daughter. For some of the extra symbols, there is the Rumpelstiltskin character as the wild, and a frog which represents the scatter symbol.
Before succumbing to the snare that is Rumpel Wildspins, players need to understand a few of the nitty-gritty details that are involved with playing this type of game. There are a minimum and maximum of 1 coin per line for this slot and the coin size ranges from just 0.02 up to 5. A jackpot, not a progressive one, stands at 20,000 coins and is well worth attempting. Lastly, Rumpel Wildspins has an
of 95.1%, which makes it rather good value for money. In addition, there is a low variance, which means that consistent, if small, wins can be won.
The main feature here is the Rumpel Wildspins feature itself. This is activated by having at least three frog scatter icons landing on the reels in one spin. When this occurs players can win prizes from 2 to 20, or even 500 times the total bet that was placed. There are also fifteen free spins that are offered at this point. If a wild (Rumpelstiltskin) lands at any time during this phase of play it will stay locked in that place on the reels for the remainder of the free spins left to the player. If three more scatters appear at this time then a further fifteen free spins get added to the players total and the game continues. Even without the bonus feature being activated, payers should hope to land the Rumpel Wild as he offers up some decent bonuses in his own right. Simply having it land on the reel can offer the player a bonus of 5, 10 and 50 times the bet that was placed.
Like many other slots, there is also an additional gamble feature: Players simply have to guess the colour of the next card to be drawn and if correct players can double their winnings. A loss, however, will result in all winnings being lost and returning to the original game play.
A fun and immersive game, this beautifully designed slot offers up plentiful winning opportunities and the tantalizing prize of gold to satisfy even the most avid of gamblers.
