The wombat says: Remember Ice Ice Yeti slot from Nolimit City? Well, you’ll soon be reminded when you fire up the reels of Eskimo Dough slot by Core Gaming. It’s a very similar game…
Head to the Arctic Circle and fish for wins with a comedy Eskimo, but be sure to wrap up as there are some ice-cool bonuses for the taking! Including Core Gaming’s standard Mystery Symbols, and the 5 Must Go progressive Jackpots.
It’s Eskimo a-go-go!
Look and Feel
This is a good ol’ cartoon game like the Foxpot slot and quite a few other I could mention. Let’s take a close look.
The backdrop to your game play is a frozen lake that’s set in a valley between 2 snowy mountains done up cartoon-style. To the right of the reels you see an Eskimo fishing – the poor bloke looks cheesed off. When was the last time he caught a bite, I wonder?
Meanwhile, the sound effects are pretty cool. The wind howls when you spin the reels, the ice crackles when you make wins, and the Yeti growls when the bonus icon lands. It certainly put a smile on this wombat’s face.
Eskimo Dough Game Play
Bets start at 0.10 and go up to 10.00 per spin.
Your reel icons include; the Eskimo, a fish on a hook and binoculars, as well as the 9, 10, J, Q, K, & A playing cards as your lower value symbols. The Wild is the the Yeti’s hand clutching the word ‘Wild’ while the Scatter icon is his big footprint.
Also called cascading drops, whenever a winning combo lands on the reels, the symbols will crack, melt away and fresh new snowy symbols will drop down in their place. This can mean more wins on the same spin, and who doesn’t like that the sound of that?
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Must Go Pots
There are 5 progressive jackpots on offer here – but before you too excited wombat fans, they will only pay out from between 100 to 1,000 credits. Each of the 6 reels has a fixed amount at the top of it. At any point during your play, an avalanche will tumble across the reels, and whichever of the reels remains intact after the mega snow fall will pay out the corresponding jackpot.
At random on any spin, snowballs may be thrown onto your reels (accompanied by a yelp as it hits that poor Eskimo fella right in the choppers). Next, these will melt and transform into the same matching symbol across the reels. This is one of Core Gaming’s trademark features, and best of all,vthis mini bonus will always end up in a win. Yeeaah!
The Bonus Builder Round
Land 3x of the big foot Scatters and you’ll get the chance to put together your own Free Spins Bonus. Choose between Yeti’s snow tracks on the icebergs to reveal the modifiers that will include Wilds, Wild Reels, Multipliers or Upgrade which will move you on the next iceberg level. Make it onto the third iceberg island, and the modifiers become crazy good, including a 25x Multiplier, Lightning Multipliers, Super Spins and Eskimo Spins. You can expect some big wins here Wombat fans.
Eskimo Dough slot is a fun, medium variance game that can pay out some decent wedge if you pick the right Free Spins modifiers (which is all a matter if luck!) If you don’t, your wins could be on the smaller side… It’s also pretty exciting to wait for the avalanche jackpots. This wombat didn’t scoop the cold hard cash, but you might!
Wombat score: 4.5/5
Loses a point for being a wee bit unoriginal…
