Genesis Just Launched 4 Seasons Slot Machine
Created by Betsoft Gaming, 4 Seasons is yet another game inspired in the Chinese culture. This tame, the basis of the game has been inspired by the Chinese zodiac system.
The grid in this video slot machine is decorated with beautiful and cute 3D animals, such as tigers, snakes, monkeys, dragons, pigs and seven animals from the Chinese zodiac. The design of the game also transports you to a calm Chinese temple full of rivers and falls beautifully decorating the background.
4 Seasons has not only great design, but also the traditional features you would find in a common slot machine with small improvements, like the double up feature and the Seasonal Wheel multipliers that turn three regular symbols into 2x, 5x and even 10x multipliers to help you reap bigger profits from your regular spins.
What We Love
As I was previously saying, this video slot machine gives a slight twist to the traditional slot machines we are already used to find in the market. Making combinations with the regular symbols throughout the 30 pay-lines will reward you with 50, 20 and 10 credits for combinations out of 5, 4, and 3 symbols respectively, unless these are multipliers determined by the Seasonal Wheel.
The Seasonal Wheel will move one place each 30 spins. Every time it moves, it turns three regular symbol into 10x, 5x and 2x multipliers, to help you get more profits from regular combinations.
Also, you will be able to find wilds represented by the traditional gold lucky cat to work as your “joker” replacing any symbol on the grid to get even more combinations, along with the scatter symbols (the gold Ying Yang). Making combinations with the last one could grant you up to 20 Free Spin rounds.
As if all of this wasn’t good enough already, the game features a Double Up option where you could double the winnings from your last spin by handing over your luck to a coin and choosing between heads or tails.
What We Do Not Like
Betsoft Gaming has come up with interesting ideas to improve the features that were already too boring for the most traditional slot machines out there, thus having the Seasonal Wheel gives you the opportunity to multiply easily without having to look for additional symbols on the reels.
Along with the wilds, the scatters and the Double Up option, these features are really good, but not as groundbreaking as I was expecting. Betsoft Gaming might have thought of a bonus gameplay to give 4 Seasons a little bit more of excitement for its players. 4 Seasons features a decent jackpot, but even close to the greatest out there in the market.
The last, but certainly small things I did not like from this game, was the fact that the golden Ying Yang scatter symbols only grant you Free Spin; making combinations with them will not reward you with even the smallest payout.
Worth Playing It?
4 Seasons is a game that I would recommend to two kinds of players: The ones out there that like the traditional stuff, but are kind of bored and already looking up for something different, and the newest of players that do not know where to start, thus this game is easy to play and understand.
The game has amazing profitability given the fact that it has 30 different pay-lines, and a high amount of multipliers you could get in a single regular spin, and if you think that is not enough, there is always the option of doubling up your stakes by “throwing a coin in the air”.
