The title of the Play’n Go online video slot Easter Eggs is not an ironic reference to the subtle in-jokes that are hidden in films to delight dedicated fans when they spot them. Instead, just like it says on the box, this casino game deals exclusively with the sweet treats and other iconic symbols associated with Easter.
Easter Eggs is a happy-go-lucky slot, with the five transparent reels spinning in front of a glorious sunlit, flower-strewn meadow, with a cosy thatched farmhouse in the distance. Cheery optimistic music accompanies the spins, and the general tone is one of cute sentimentality. There are 20 paylines, and players can bet from 1 to 500 credits per line.
Colourful Symbols, Including Card Values
Although the colours in the Easter Eggs artwork tend more towards pastels than the bright primaries used in many other titles, they are nevertheless eye-catching and the graphics are beautifully detailed. The five poker values 10, J, Q, K and A are designed as brightly wrapped Easter Eggs, winning between 5 and 150 credits for three, four or five matches from Reel 1 on the same payline.
The four higher-value symbols are all associated with Easter morning. There is a fluffy yellow Chick and a pure white Easter Bunny, which win matching prizes of 15, 75 or 250 credits for three, four or five of a kind. The white Lamb starts winning prizes for two matches or more: 2, 20, 150 or 500 credits. The Cockerel that greets the rising sun also has four prize levels: 3, 25, 250 or 750 credits.
Golden Easter Egg Wild Can Win Big
The Easter Eggs Wild Crown Oaks betting, which has the usual substitution role among any of the ordinary symbols to create more winning paylines, is an Easter Egg wrapped in gold foil with a bright scarlet bow. In addition to substituting for other symbols, the Wild also wins substantial prizes for matches with itself on the same payline: from 10 credits for just two matches from Reel 1, up to 3,000 credits for five of a kind.
Two Bonus Scatters in Play
Easter Eggs features two bonus symbols. The first is a brightly decorated egg-shaped box of tiny Easter Eggs; it is a Scatter, so three or more in any position will trigger a round of free spins. Players then choose from different eggs to determine whether this round will be 5, 10 or 15 spins, with a multiplier of X6, X3 or X2 applied to all wins. Two or more Scatters also produce an instant win, worth between 2X and 150X the total bet on the spin.
The other bonus icon is a basket of Easter Eggs. It is also a Scatter, so three baskets in any position trigger the bonus game. The player is shown a screen of three Easter Eggs, and must pick them in the right order to reveal the prizes they conceal. If the player hits all three in the right order, they get a bonus fourth egg, and the prize can be as high as 500X the total bet. If the player hits an egg that cracks and turns grey, however, the round is over.
