Easter Island is a Yggdrasil Gaming slot with 5 reels and between 27 and 103 paylines. Playable on all devices from 10p to £200 per spin, you are taken to a Pacific paradise where each win gives you a respin with the contributing symbol replacing all high or low-value symbols – if you get a win with 4 or 5 symbols, the number of rows increase to give you more ways to win. Sticky wilds also appear to expand the whole reel.
The game is set in Easter Island so is tropical – with loads of symbolism taken from the mysterious island, 2 towering moai statues stand either side of the reel set. Set in spring and with lush green fields in the backdrop with colorful flowers, it comes with 4 low-value wooden suits as well as 5 high-value animal statues – the red eagle is the highest value symbol giving you 500 coins for 5 across a pay line.
When it comes to bonus features, Easter Island has 3. If you get a winning combination in the base game, you will trigger the Symbol Swap Respin feature – basically, your winning potential increases as a win with a low-value symbol will see all other low-value symbols replaced with the winning symbol for the re-spin. If you get a win with a high-value symbol, all other high-value symbols are replaced with that winning symbol for the re-spin.
Furthermore, Easter Island comes with an Expanding Reels feature – this sees the reel set expand in the Symbol Swap Respin feature. If you get a 3 of a kind win in the base game, you will play with the standard 27 paylines. If you get a 4 of a kind win, you will get 2 extra rows which give you 65 paylines. If you’re lucky enough to get a 5 of a kind win, you will benefit from 4 extra rows which give you 103 paylines.
There’s more as the game benefits from an Expanding Wilds feature – when a wild symbol lands on a winning spin in the base game or any respin, they expand to take over the whole reel. Wilds landing in a base game win become sticky for the Symbol Swap Respin and also expand to cover the whole reel. The wild only appears on reels 2 and 4.
Easter Island is another superb slot from Yggdrasil Gaming – hopefully, you can benefit from the sticky expanding wilds in which can lead to some pretty decent wins of up to 1,880 times your stake on each spin/re-spin. Saying that, it’s a low variance game meaning most of the wins will be smaller and more often.
If you get lucky with the sticky wild reels and can get high value symbols replaced with the high value eagle, you can expect to spend plenty of time on this mana-filled mystery island.
