Did you ever wish Christmas lasted all year round? Imagine, piles of snow and presents everywhere; mistletoe, Christmas trees and never ending fun! Sounds really spectacular. Guess what, Rival folks thought so too. So they introduced ‘Snow Wonder’ three-reels machine which is just in tune with everyone’s festive mood.
First, ‘Snow Wonder’ has just three reels and one line. It is much less complicated than most of the video slots on the market and much more fun. No one wants to think much over the holidays, right? At ‘Snow Wonder’ you wouldn’t have to.
Basically, to win, you need to land a combination of tiles on the only possible pay line. Obviously, as there are only three stops on the pay line, the combo has to be at least three tiles long. The pays depend on the wager.
You are allowed to bet from one to three coins on the only line. Each coin may be worth from 0.01 to 10.00. So the total spin wager may be from 0.01 to 30.00. Maybe this sum will make some high-rollers frown, but most of the players with smaller back rolls would be quite OK with the number. We are having fun, remember!
As for the tiles, they are the 7s and Bars. Old timers remember those from the one-armed bandits’ times. A three-tile combination of a Single Bar is worth 15x the wager multiplier, if you have staked three coins. Three Double Bars are paid 30x and the Triple Bar is paid 45x the multiplier. The mixed Bars combination is paid 6x.
Then, there are the 7s. Three-tile combo of Green Single 7s will be paid 60x the wager multiplier. Red Double 7s are worth 90x. The Triple White 7s combo is paid 225x the multiplier. A set of three miscellaneous 7s will be paid out 15x the bet.
As for the themed tiles, there are Pine cones. One Pine cone is worth 3x the wager multiplier, two are paid 9x. Three Pine cones are worth 450x the bet multiplier. Silver Bells are worth 300x, and Holy will be paid 2,500x the multiplier. All the pays are given for the maximum bet of three coins. Figuring out the wins at three-reelers may be heck of a bother. Here, you multiply the ‘price’ of a combo not by the total line wager but by the bet multiplier, which is basically the value of a single coin.
And finally, a few words on operating the slot. At the bottom of the reels screen there are the buttons for making a bet. ‘Select Coins’ is used to choose the number of coins per the only line. ‘Bet Max’ is a button if you don’t feel like pressing the aforementioned ‘Select Coins’ button three times. If you press it, your bet will be automatically set to the maximum number of coins. To the left of those two, there are two widgets. The leftmost one shows the total balance. And next to it, there is a widget with a coin value. As we have mentioned already it may be anywhere from 0.01 to 10.00, to choose press the ‘+’ and ‘-’ buttons right under the widget. ‘Snow Wonder’ spinning may be done automatically or manually. So, choose your poison. The ‘Paytable’ is at the top of the screen, right above the reels. Click that icon to check the combinations and the pays.
‘Snow Wonder’ turns out quite ordinary when it comes to design and animation. There is nothing really elaborate here in terms of tiles’ or background’ graphics. The colors are vivid and pretty straightforward. The background is designed like a snow landscape with some fir trees in the background and a snowman in the foreground. Overall, the design is plain though pleasing. It leaves that heartwarming ‘Seasons Greetings’ feeling, which is priceless. The gameplay is pretty typical too. As for the scatters, there are none whatsoever here. The combos are paid dearly when you bet max only. If you stake less than three coins, be ready to divide the pays by two or three. The ‘Snow Wonder’ RTP is actually not gambler-friendly, leaving you with 94.96% return only. So much for the holiday spirit!
