Year 2016 is slowly coming to an end and we have immensely enjoyed all the fun we’ve experienced together. Springbok will finish the year celebrating with you, not only by making sure all your favourite titles are close at hand, but also by offering gifts to show how much we appreciate your engagement and trust. To wrap the year up, during the next month we’ll take a look at the games which you’ve enjoyed above others. Let’s start with the Top 5 which were played the most at Springbok Casino during 2016.
Bubble Bubble has been your absolute favourite this year. Now, is that because this Halloween treat is hosted by the alluring Winni the Witch, or is it due to its attractive features and opportunity to land scary good wins? In any case, our gamers have clearly shown they love this 5-reel slot with 50 fixed paylines and if you haven’t already played it, give it a try now.
As you spin, reels reveal Black Cat, Raven, the Frog and a number of other typical items you’d expect to find in a witch’s lair. Winni herself is Wild, stands in for any of the other symbols including Scatter, and delivers other magical surprises. Every time she appears, her symbol spreads to cover the entire reel, thus increasing your chances to win. When she contributes to 3 winning combinations, prize is tripled.
Cauldron bubbling with mysterious concoction is your Scatter and collecting 3 or more triggers one of three exciting features: Wild Witches, Great Ghosts or Bewitched feature. Picking one of the Cauldrons reveals the one you get to play. Wild Witches award 20 free games and on top, after any Scatter win, up to 9 Wild Ghosts fly on to the reels to substitute any other icon except Scatter.
Great Ghost feature awards 9 free games while Winni casts a spell on 1 or 2 of the other reels, turning them into Winni the Witch Wilds. In case Great Ghost and Winni don’t deliver generously enough, Win-Win feature makes up for it. If your overall feature win is 10 times the triggering bet or less, you’ll get a bonus of 5x to 100x your stake. Should this feature provide zero win, you’ll still collect 100x your bet. There is absolutely no way to lose! Pick the Cauldron hiding Bewitched feature and you’ll get 7 free games with Winni the Witch covering the middle reel.
Bubble Bubble takes you to an action-packed Halloween heaven where the charming witch awaits to put her spell on you and reward scarily good prizes.
Naughty or Nice
Once again you’ve shown your appreciation for attractive ladies and generous wins, spending your time with Naughty and Nice Girls in this 5-reel, 50-payline slot. Santa is in a particularly good mood this year, and with two sexy assistants by his side, who can blame him? All that’s left for you to do is benefit from his generosity and grab yourself some fantastic Christmas presents.
To help not only Santa but the player as well, Nice and Naughty Girls substitute for all other symbols except Scatter and can potentially make you extra happy by delivering Progressive Jackpot. Among many holiday icons populating the reels, look out for Christmas Wreath representing your Scatter. It can easily multiply your bet by 200 times and landing 3 will trigger the special feature.
Naughty or Nice feature awards 10 free games and invites you to choose one of the girls to be your Bonus Substitute. When they appear on the reels, each will award either an additional free spin, a prize of up to 20x your bet or cause its reel to be held for next the free spin. When one or more Bonus Substitutes contribute to a winning combination, prizes are doubled.
If you manage to get five Santa symbols to appear on a payline, you will collect a whopping 10,000 coins win. And landing 5 Nice Girls or 5 Bonus Substitute symbols on a payline, awards a Progressive Jackpot which currently displays more than R43,000. So even if you’ve been naughty this year, you could still end up with a very nice present under the Christmas tree.
Mighty Achilles was the winner of 2015 and has obviously remained hugely popular as this year it makes it to the top 5. This 5-reel, 20-payline slot based on Greek mythology can be highly profitable thanks to its two fun features and a chance to win the Progressive jackpot.
The Greek hero himself is Wild and substitutes for all symbols except Scatter to help you complete winning combinations. Achilles is also the highest paying symbol in the game, cashing out up to 10,000 credits for five-of-a-kind. Even landing only 3 could put a smile on your face when, prompted to pick one of them, you reveal 15 to 25 Free Spins. While you’re spinning for free, every Scattered Troy icon changes into the beautiful Helen or the brave Achilles and all your prizes are tripled.
Whenever 3 or more Troy symbols appear anywhere on the reels, you’ll get to benefit from 10 free spins with all wins doubled. These two features not only hit fairly often but can also be re-triggered, giving you an opportunity to enjoy tons of spins on only one bet.
Clearly, joining the Trojan War could prove to be very rewarding. You can walk away with as much as 30,000x your line bet or even collect the Progressive Jackpot which is triggered randomly and can be won at the end of any game.
God of Wealth
This 5-reel, 25-payline slot is a Chinese-themed game which is all about prosperity and good fortune. Caishen, the Chinese God of Wealth, welcomes you to a pagoda looking out to a peaceful Chinese garden. Beautifully crafted exotic symbols include the Wild God of Wealth which replaces all symbols apart from the Scattered Ingots and also doubles your payouts.
Gold Ingots trigger Free Games feature when 3 or more appear anywhere on the reels and pay out as much as 200x your total bet for 5. Activating Free Spins feature, you’ll get to click on triggering Ingots which will reveal up to 10 Free Games each. While spinning for free, Green Dragons, Tigers and Oxen will be replaced by the God of Wealth to help fill your pockets with coins.
While Green Dragons pay up to 5,000x your line bet, God of Wealth himself can deliver as much as 10,000x bet per line. If that’s not tempting enough, there is a Progressive Jackpot on top which can be randomly awarded after any spin.
Cleopatra’s Gold is yet another RTG slot which comes with a Progressive Jackpot, though set in a very different scene. Walking into an Egyptian desert, you’ll get to enjoy the company of a pharaoh renowned for her great beauty, wit, charm and intellect. Spinning the reels reveals other Egyptian symbols, such as the Eye of Horus, Pyramids and various hieroglyphic icons.
This 5-reel slot features 20 flexible paylines and has quite a traditional feel. It probably made it to Top 5 with the help of gamers who enjoy simple gameplay and uncomplicated graphics and features.
Great pharaoh Cleopatra is your Wild symbol which substitutes for all except Scatter and doubles the prize each time she participates in a winning combination. Cleopatra also generously awards when you land 5 of her icons on a payline, cashing out as much as 10,000x your line bet.
Scatter is depicted as the mysterious Pyramid which triggers the bonus round when 3 or more appear anywhere on the reels. Feature awards 15 Free Games while all your prizes get tripled. If in meantime you land 3+ Pyramids again, feature is re-triggered.
Scatter is a valuable icon even outside the bonus game and can cash out as much as 500x your total bet. The Progressive Jackpot we mentioned earlier is a cherry on the cake and could be yours after any of the spins. Even if you don’t manage to grab it immediately, don’t worry, generous Cleopatra delivers frequent wins, which is probably another reason you’ve remained faithful to this slot since 2005.
