Sloth Tumble is a new casino slot and the result of a Relax Gaming/Aboutslots collaboration. Lo and behold, the time is nigh. In 2016, three brothers decided to turn their passion for gambling into an occupation, birthing the Casinodaddy live stream. Since the day the “start streaming” button was turned on, an interest in leaving an even more permanent mark on the industry has grown. Over the years, we’ve live-streamed thousands of games and reviewed as many. We’ve learned what makes a slot game intriguing and most importantly, what you guys enjoy. So, when Relax, one of the most prominent providers in the industry contacted us in regards to making a slot together, we realized that it was time to fulfill our dream. After months of pitching, brainstorming, and hard work, it’s time. We introduce to you; Sloth Tumble. Let’s dig in.
Sloth Tumble is a video slot from Relax Gaming with 6 reels and 6 rows. By all likeliness, it will follow in Money Train 3’s footsteps, having a Min.bet of 0.10 and a Max.bet of 10. The game has a default RTP of 96.11%, which places it just above the industry average on that metric. Sloth Tumble is played at high volatility and got a hit frequency of 23.67%, which can net you an insane max win of 100.000x the bet.
Chip is not a greedy sloth. He loves to help his visitors net big wins with the following features: Wild Symbol, Multipliers, Wood Blockers, Free Spins, Super Free Spins, and Bonus Buys.
Once upon a time in Relaxland, there was a little sloth, and his name was Chip. All the other little sloths he lived with would run and jump and butt their heads together, but not Chip. He liked to stand there, leaning at his wooden box, listening to a mixtape. He had a favorite spot under a tree. It was his favorite tree, and he would stand in its shade all day and spin the reels.
What you just read is the story of Chip (perhaps slightly influenced by Ferdinand The Bull), the game’s main character. Chip is a big fan of Aboutslots, as evidenced by his branded cap. Besides enjoying the game from the side, Chip is also the game’s highest-paying symbol, eager to net you some big wins.
The lower-paying symbols consist of blue squares, green triangles, yellow rhombus, and red stars. A winning combination of 6 with one of these pays 0.4x the bet. The higher-paying symbols include square-shaped grapes, watermelons, oranges, strawberries, and Chip the Sloth. Although the payouts might sound low, there are some multipliers in play to make it all the more interesting. These are attached to symbols at random, but we’ll go through that in the features section.
What is the max win in the slot Sloth Tumble?
You can win up to 100.000x the bet.
What features are available in the slot Sloth Tumble?
The features are Wild Symbol, Multipliers, Avalanche, Wood Blockers, Free Spins, Super Free Spins, and Bonus Buys
Wild symbols expand across the entire reel that they land on. They have a 6x multiplier from the get-go, but will absorb all multipliers on the reel they land on. Wild reels are only available during Free Spins.
Symbols have a chance to have a multiplier attached to them, increasing the number of ways to win.
Every symbol that is part of a winning combination is destroyed, allowing new ones to drop down.
On the grid, you’ll see wooden blocker symbols. Whenever you make a winning combination, all wooden blockers adjacent to a symbol that’s part of the connection are removed, allowing a “real” symbol to drop down.
If all wooden blockers are destroyed, 6 to 12 Free Spins are randomly awarded, where the full grid is unlocked during all spins. Before every avalanche in the feature, reels 2-5 have a chance to turn wild, and as we explained previously, these will have a multiplier of at least 6x attached to them. To keep the bonus going, a symbol awarding additional spins may land on reel 6.
On any spin, the wooden blocks can randomly turn into ice. If all ice blocks are destroyed, 6 to 12 Super Free Spins are randomly awarded. Super Free Spins are similar to regular Free Spins but can escalate crazily. When a symbol with a multiplier is part of a winning combination, the multiplier value is added to a progressive win multiplier. Thus, the multiplier will be kept throughout the feature.
Now, you didn’t think we’d release a game without some giga degen features, right? After the Super Free Spins are over, you can choose to buy an extra spin, where the current multiplier is kept. This is similar to Wild Yield, where the feature doesn’t necessarily have to end as soon as the potential kicks in. However, the extra spin can only be bought with the money you’ve won during the feature, so it removes the risk of draining your entire balance in a chase of that big hit.
The base cost of buying an extra spin is 90x. But in addition, 10 times the current progressive multiplier is added to the base cost.
The following bonus buy options are available:
100x = Triggers the regular Free Spins, with an RTP of 96.50%.
500x = Triggers the Super Free Spins, with an RTP of 96.50%.
So, how do we evaluate a game that we are clearly biased about? Well, first of all, we are certain that it will show for itself. A question our streamers get asked frequently is “what features would your dream slot have?”. This is a question we had to ask ourselves during the brainstorm-process, and we realised that the tumble mechanic was the way to go. Games like Temple Tumble and Templar Tumble have been loved for years, both by us, and our viewers. The only thing that they’ve lacked, is that explosive potential. Sure, they’re high volatility games that can be lucrative, but we knew that our own slot HAD to be up there with the craziest games, potential-wise.
Visually and thematically, we accepted our limits in graphical production and handed that over to Relax. Of course, we wanted a cool little main character, so we got Chip. Now, please don't question us on why we chose a sloth to represent us, because we’ve grown quite fond of Chip. Perhaps, we do see ourselves in him. He likes to sleep, or day-dream, rather, but as soon as a feature pops or a big win occurs, Chip gets hyped.
Alright. Core mechanic and main character decided and approved. What’s the cherry on top going to be? If you’re a Casinodaddy viewer or a slot player overall, you’ll know that there’s no game more degenerate than Wild Yield. It has this extra spin where you can basically keep playing the progressive bonus feature, not having to start all over again. But as fun as that might be, we also had to think of the responsible gambling aspect, as we know we’ll probably influence a lot of you guys to try it out. Thus, you can only use the winnings to buy more spins and not your entire balance.
Well, that about wraps it up. We truly hope that you’ll enjoy playing the game as much as we enjoyed making it. Only one thing left now.. what do you rate your own game with sounding too biased? We could go for the straight 10/10, or maybe our classic 7.8, but both would be frivolous. A game that is created and fulfills the components that are valued in the rating, should of course receive a higher score. However, a 10/10 is pure perfection and leaves no room for sequels, polishing, or improvements, and what’s the fun in that? Thus, a 9.5 sounds fair, but ultimately, it's your rating that matters!
Sloth Tumble by Relax Gaming/Aboutslots is the newest game in the tumble-series, where we’re introduced to Chip the Sloth and a max win of 100.000x the bet.
