Winter Berries is a popular 3D online video slot game powered by Yggdrasil Gaming. As the name suggests, the theme of the game has to do with winter and fruit, specifically berries. In this game, players will encounter images of every type of berry from bright purple to yellow to orange and even some mixed berries. The backdrop to the game is an expansive view of a beautiful northern winter landscape complete with frozen lake and the shimmering Northern Lights.
The reels themselves are completely translucent with the actual berry symbols floating inside a wreath of twigs. The game has a peppy cartoon-style backing track that gives the game a bit of a magical feel. This combined with the high quality 3D graphics and animation sequences work together to create an entertaining experience with the possibility of big wins.
5 Reels with 25 Paylines
The slot machine in Winter Berries comprises of 5 spinning reels with three rows. There are a total of 25 paylines that pay out from left to right across the reels. At the start of each spin, players can set the coin value from 0.1 coins all the way up to 5 coins per payline. In this game, the more coins bet, the higher the payouts for any standard line win. The game also offers a autoplay function where players can set the number of spins without interacting with the game itself. In this game, the number of spins can be set from 10 going all the way up to 1000 spins. The autoplay feature can be switched off at any time.
The Winter Berries slot also includes a few bonus features in the form of frozen symbols, re-spins and multiplying columns. On the reels, players will find a total of seven symbols. The highest paying symbol of the slot is the image of a bunch of yellow berries. Finding all five across the reels will result in a payout of 500 coins on a standard bet.
Frozen Symbols with Re-Spins
The second highest paying symbol in Winter Berries are the blueberries. This is followed by the orange berries, blackberries and the small tomato type berries. The two lowest paying symbols include the small red berries as well as the red and black mixed berries. The main bonus feature in this game is the frozen symbol re-spin function. Whenever a winning combination is achieved, the symbols involved in the win will freeze in place. A re-spin will be triggered creating more chances of hitting another winning combination. The slot will continue to trigger a re-spin as long as another symbol matches the frozen symbols already on screen.
The Column Multiplier Feature
The second bonus feature to look out for in Winter Berries is the multiplier feature. When a symbol fills an entire column, this will activate a multiplier for the particular win. The symbols will freeze in place and offer the opportunity to fill up the next column going from left to right. Each successive column adds another 1x multiplier. If players manage to fill all five columns with the same symbol, this will result in a 5x multiplier that will automatically be added to the winning bet.
