The wombat says: Brightly coloured fruit machine madness! Yes, that’s what’s on offer from this slot brought to us by Eyecon. This game is brighter than a bright thing. Crikey, it’s brighter than Moirai Blaze– that 7×7 grid of shiny gemstones!
And with their trademark wild multipliers there could well be some seriously juicy wins on offer.
Enough of all the preamble, let’s get down to the spinning!
Look and Feel
If you’re thinking that there might be echoes of slot classic Starburst here, then you’d be right. For an Eyecon game, the graphics are surprising good and with its see through reels and old school fruity-meets-hi-tech vibe, it has a lot in common with NetEnt’s most famous slot and its got that rich feeling that reminds us of the Wicked Tales Dark Red slot with lots of sumptuous colours kicking about. Sumptuous– that was a big word for a wombat don’t you think? I had to spell check that one!
As for the soundtrack? Well it’s as catchy as a bout of measles!
Turn it up, nod your head and tap your paws!
Heartburst slot from has 5 reels, 3 rows and a whopping 100 pay-lines. That’s 10 times more than the Net Ent equivalent which is the Double Stacks slot, although that game has some extra features hidden in its fruit basket.
Bets start at €0.01 and go up to €50 per spin. Your symbols on the reels include your ye olde fruit machine favourites, the bars, juicy oranges, tasty watermelons, mouthwatering grapes, luscious lemons and succulent cherries.
The bars are the highest value symbols on the reels, and landing 5x of these lucky icons will pay you out a jackpot of 3000 coins, which would make this one very happy wombat indeed.
Meanwhile the red love heart icons will act as Wilds in the slot and will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels (except for the Scatter). They will land on reels 1, 3 and 5 only and will also expand to cover an entire reel – which help you scoop those lucrative wins more quickly!
But best of all, the heart wilds will pay out a x3 multiplier on all wins that they are a part of.
The Scatter in Heartburst slot is the Lucky 7 icon – keep your eyes peeled for it as it’s the key to the Free Spins.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Land 3x, 4x or 5x of the Lucky 7s and you’ll receive 15, 20 or 25 Heartburst free spins respectively. You can also retrigger this round up to 15 times in a row which could mean there’s a possible 375 spins up for grabs. Now that really is a dizzy business!
Fancy a further flutter wombat fans? Then try your hand at the gamble bonus – it will pay double or nothing on your last win. Pick correctly from 1 of the 2 options that you are presented with and you’ll double your winnings. But if you get it wrong, you’ll lose everything. FYI: You can play 5 rounds of the Gamble Bonus which means loads of chances for wins, or for you to lose the ruddy lot!
A nice addition to the Eyecon stable of games, Heartburst looks the part and is a treat on the eyes (unlike some of Eyecon’s previous offerings). It also has the usual decent Eyecon paytable. But as always it’s the wild multipliers that get this wombat’s paws tingling and you can rack up some hefty wins in both the bonus and the base game. All in all Heartburst is a cool little slot.
The bottom line is, every now and then I love to get my hands on some melons and cherries, call me Old School. Highly recommended!
