New Slot: Chibeasties 2 (Yggdrasil) Review
Today we take a look at the new slot Chibeasties 2 from Yggdrasil. The game is a sequel to one of the first slots made by the provider. However, Chibeasties 2 comes with many more features, much better animation and the potential is also bigger. Chibeasties 2 was released on 21.03.2017 and players can try in on LeoVegas.
Chibeasties 2 is a 5 reels and 20 paylines slot available on desktop, tablet, as well as most other mobile devices. The min and max bets players can lay – range from 0.20 to 100, depending on the currency played. The theme is exactly what you’d expect from a Yggdrasil title. The game takes players into an Alien forest populated with some cute looking creatures. Each creatur has a different color and a typical native American outfit.
All symbols on the reels relate to the theme. The high value symbols feature each of the creatures. There is the red one as the highest paying symbols, then the purple, blue and green. The low value symbols are all mushrooms, each with a diferent color. The scatter symbol is a tiki mask with the words “Free Spin” on the bottom. The wild symbol is a golden box with a crystal on top. The color of the crystal depends on which mode/realm the player is playing.
The game has 4 different mods, or realms, in which you can choose to play. You can even change the mode during the base game by clicking on the button located above the spin button. Every time you change the mode, the background will also change taking you to a different part of the jungle. What makes each Realm unique though, is the attributes the wild takes on each realm.
Wilds on Each Realm
Each realm (or mode) has its own unique wild feature. The features are as follows:
- Expanding Realm where the wild symbols expand to take over the whole reel on which they land
- Spreading Realm where any wild you land will add between 1 and 4 additional wilds in random positions on the reels.
- Teleporting Realm where a wild you land will switch position to give the best possible winning combination.
- Mirroring Realm where wilds are mirrored against an X and Y axis which in turn, cuts through reel 3 and creates up to 2 new wild symbols.
In our opinion Expanding Realm is the best realm/mode to go with. The reason being that it allows for the player to potentially get a full screen of wilds.
Wild Mutation feature
This is a random feature which can be triggered when a wild lands on the reels. After the wild performs the feature in its own realm, it will transform into a wild symbol from another realm to give another realm feature!
Players can trigger the free spins feature by landing simultaneously 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere in view. The number of free spins you get depends on the number of scatters you land.
- 3 scatters = 7 free spins
- 4 scatters = 15 free spins
- 5 scatters = 30 free spins
The free spins will play in whichever realm the player was when he/she triggered the feature. Moreover, every time you land a wild during the free spins, the mutation feature will trigger. The free spins can re-trigger by landing 3 more scatter symbols during one of the free spins.
Chibeasties 2 is a medium volatility slot with an RTP of 96.2%. The game is visually gorgeous, the animation, graphics and design are top Yggdrasil quality. As mentioned, the biggest wins are possible on the expanding Realm. All in all, another top notch game by the Swedish provider.
