If you like tall girls then look elsewhere. Hans Christian Andersen created the character of Thumbelina. It’s your everyday story of a very tiny girl who has adventures with toads and moles, fights off their attention (like you do) and ends up marrying a flower-fairy prince. Almost a case of “I’ll have what he’s having” methinks. Well strange stories aside, this is a colourful slot from EGT that offers its players a great playing experience and excellent chances of getting big wins.
The first thing you will notice when seeing this game is that it has a very different look to it. There are six reels but the first three only have two rows of symbols. The next three have five rows of symbols. There’s also a lot more ways to win in this slot than you will get from other games. In all there are 225 different ways to get a win in this slot and hopefully they will provide plenty of winning combinations for you. Playing the game costs, a minimum of 50 credits and the maximum 1000. Just work out a budget you can safely afford to lose and won’t cause any financial problems.
The symbols in this slot will be familiar to those of you who have read books by Hans Christian Andersen. There’s Mama Toad, Mr Mole, Ms Fieldmouse, Prince Cornelius and of course Thumbelina. Not surprisingly it’s Thumbelina herself who is the highest paying symbol in this game with a 250x multiplier for six of her symbols.
Thumbelina herself is the wild symbol in this game but only apears on the second and fifth reels. You will be glad when it does make an appearance as it can expand on its left and right neighbouring positions. It can substitut for all of the other symbols apart from the scatter which is the Prince.
If you can get three of the scatter symbols anywhere on the fourth, fifth and sixth reels then it’s time to celebrate. That’s because you will be awarded a total of ten free spins Now this can be quite a lucrative bonus round due to the fact that each time the scatter symbol makes an appearance on those final three reels you receive another free spin. There’s an alternate set of reels used during the free spins.
The format of the reels is a very clever one. Those three row reels on the left-hand side allow space below them for the game’s title and above them room for the Jackpot Cards Bonus boxes. There are four of those, the first level being the club suit from a pack of playing cards, the second level a diamond, the third a heart and the fourth a spade. The Jackpot Cards Bonus can arrive at any time after a spin. You see another screen that has 12 cards face down and you simply need to pick cards to reveal which suit they are. First suit to get three symbols wins and hopefully it’ll be the highest-level jackpot prize that heads in your direction. The higher your stake, the more chance of this coming along but keep an eye on that budget of yours.
The slot also has a gamble feature. This comes along when you get a winning combination in the base game. You don’t have to take this up but if you do it’s more playing cards. It’s the usual task of having to correctly guess the colour of the next playing card to double that win you have just had. Get it right and you can have four more goes, get it wrong and you lose your win. The best thing with this gamble feature is that it only applies to wins less than 1750 credits so large wins won’t be put at risk.
There’s a fair amount going on in this game so it’s even more important to do some initial research. That means taking a good look through the paytable to find out as much as you can about this slot before playing it for real. Even more important is having some free games to see just how all the different features in this game work out, then you will be fully prepared.
If this game gives you a great deal of enjoyment, try these similar games. There’s the Novomatic slot ‘Dr Enlarge-O’ which also offers its players a gamble feature (with no restrictions), a free spins round and expanding wild symbols. Also try ‘Caramel Dice from EGT. That also has the Jackpot Cards Bonus and a gamble feature to try your luck on.
Definitely a game that you should be trying your luck on. It might take a little while to get used to the different reels but it’s a great looking game with plenty of chances of getting wins. The free spins can be lucrative and an expanding wild symbol is always good news. Don’t’ overdo the gamble feature (at least you can’t gamble large wins) and be careful with your budget when chasing the Jackpot Cards Bonus.
