There’s hardly anyone who hasn’t heard the familiar tale of Snow White and her dwarf friends as they helped her find true love despite the attempts of an evil queen to kill the girl to feed her own vanity. The story has been told in many shapes and forms, and in 2017, Booongo Gaming decided to try their own version in a slot. With them, they brought gorgeous graphics, an exciting but calm soundtrack, and the promise of a 400x jackpot, and an RTP of 96.8%, sitting comfortably above industry standard.
While you may find the 5x4 playing field familiar, the title decides to forgo Scatters and instead, expands on achievements the developers used in their previous titles to create fun and interesting triggers for the free spins bonus. Exactly how you can unlock these special features, you may ask? Read on below!
Play Poisoned Apple
The way the title handles free spins is a relatively interesting take on things, showing improvement on how they used to handle things in God’s Temple. While there, you have six achievements and you had to complete them all for a bonus you would otherwise trigger with Scatters, here, the goals you need to reach are much simpler, and one does not lock out the other. You will always have one bonus up alongside the actual free spins, whether that is additional free spins, additional paylines, or one of three different bonuses attached to Wilds. You can either win Mirror Wilds, which also appear during normal gameplay, where a Wild on the third reel will replicate all other Wilds to their respective position on the other side of the reel, Sticky Wilds that makes the Prince icon stick in place for the duration of free spins, or Growing Wild that turns Snow White Wild and makes her rise to the top of the reel.
As we already mentioned, Mirror Wilds also appear during normal gameplay. If a Wild appears on the third reel, and any additional Wilds are present, they will be mirrored on the opposite side. Say you have a Wild in the middle of the second reel, and a Wild on the third reel. Thanks to this feature, the Wild on the second reel will be replicated in the same position on the fourth reel.
How to Play
We have to admit, while we’re all for bonuses, one thing we didn’t appreciate was the fact you won additional paylines as part of a bonus. This means that, for all intents and purposes, Poisoned Apple has the capability of giving 25 paylines at all times, but simply has them disabled until the right goal is completed, which we aren’t big fans of.
You can wager between $0.20 up to $100 per spin, giving both casual gamblers and high rollers something to look forward to. The biggest jackpot, played at maximum bet, is $40,000.
Like in other Booongo titles, the Autoplay feature will start spinning once the autoplay button is pressed, and will only stop when you click it again, or you run out of funds.
Strategy & Tips
The inclusion of goals this time around felt much better, and having meters that let you track your progress is really cool. Make sure to keep a close eye on how full each of them are, and check them again after every free spin, as the goals change each time.
The mobile and desktop versions of this game are exactly the same, so the experience is the same regardless if you’re playing at home or on the go.
