March sees the release of New Seasons, the latest slot from Yggdrasil. New Seasons looks to be bringing something new to the table, with a great seasonal theme and cycling wild bonuses.
We’re intrigued by the idea, but let’s take a deeper look at what this slot has to offer. You can find the New Seasons slot from its release on March 24th, along with every other Yggdrasil slot, at Bet365 Casino.
New Seasons Slot Overview
- Cartoon style seasonal nature theme
- Cycling seasonal mechanic that affects gameplay
- 4 different wild bonuses
- Free Spins mode
Seasonal Wild Bonuses
This is the big selling point of New Seasons and will make or break the slot. The idea behind the seasonal wilds is simple. Every 10 spins of the slot, the season of the slot will change, going through Winter, Spring, Summer and then Autumn; as per usual.
Every season will change the wild symbol and the bonuses that it brings to the reels. Those wilds include:
- The Winter Hare: A wild that will create a duplicate wild on the slot, which will always make the biggest win it can
- The Spring Owl: A wild that will give you a free re-spin. The owl will then stick in the same position and move its way across the reels per spin, until it disappears at the end (similar to the Jack & The Beanstalk slot by NetEnt)
- The Summer Deer: An expanding wild that expands across one adjacent slot in all directions, in a + shape
- The Autumn Fox: A wild that comes with a random multiplier on any line it is part of
Each of these wild symbols will drastically change the way the game plays every 10 spins. This makes New Seasons set to be one of the most dynamic slots we’ve ever played.
It makes it hard to judge how consistent the wins will be be, given how often the gameplay shifts. We’ll find out when we see the slot in action and when more details are released, most important of which being the RTP.
Free Spins Mode
The free spins mode is pretty straight forward in New Seasons. It’s activated by spinning scatter symbols and which will then grant you between 7 – 30 free spins, depending on how many scatter symbols were spun to activate it.
The main factor that affects free spins is that the seasonal wilds and season changes will continue to be in play during free spins. The bonuses you can win will differ as you change between seasons every 10 spins, which gives it a fun element of randomness.
If you get 7 free spins, then your free spins bonus round may remain within a single season. Win 30 free spins and you could travel across every season and have your winnings affected as each new seasonal bonus wild makes its appearance.
Play New Seasons March 24th
New Seasons is out in little under 2 weeks, but we still haven’t seen a video or anything other than screenshots and what we’ve been able to work out ourselves. It’s looking to be another really interesting and original slot, something that Yggdrasil have been on a roll with as of late.
Hopefully, Yggdrasil will lower their guard and give us a test run before the official release, but until then, we have a short wait to play one of the most unique slot releases of 2016. You can find New Seasons on its March 24th release at Bet365 Casino.
