Easter Themed Online Casino Slots

Published on: April 1, 2010 

Festivals usually draw a lot of slot games around them. Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving and Halloween are some festivals that are represented in a number of online slot games. Therefore it is surprising that there are very few online slots with Easter as the theme. In fact most of the slots only obliquely touch upon some aspects of the festival. There is one slot game however that brings to life the essence of Easter. This is Eggstravaganza from Rival Gaming.

Eggstravaganza is a three reel slot game with a single payline. The background to the reels is lush green signifying the onset of spring. The pay tables, the buttons and the reels themselves are displayed as slabs of chocolate. The symbols are characteristic of Easter and include Easter Egg, Bunny Rabbit, Duck, Chocolate, Eggs Basket and others. Some of these look like realistic sugar frosted goodies ready to eat. Eggstravaganza is remembered for its unusual animations. The Bunny Rabbit and the Duck symbols exhibit animations. The animations do not take place within the symbols on the reels. Whenever the Duck symbol appears in a payline a family of four ducks dawdles across the top of the reels. Whenever the Bunny Rabbit appears in a payline a bunny rabbit hops across the top of the reels.

Eggstravaganza allows players to wager up to three coins. Separate pay tables are shown for each number of coins. The coin size can vary from 0.01 to 5.00. The highest payout is for three Easter Egg symbols on the payline with three coins wagered. This payout is 2500 coins. One Bunny Rabbit symbol on any reel in the payline triggers 5 free spins. Two Bunny Rabbit symbols trigger 10 free spins. The payouts during free spins are tripled.

On the occasion of last Easter Microgaming released a slot game called Lucky Eggsplorer. Apart from the timing of the release and the “Eggs” in its name the online slot has little to do with Easter. It has a bunch of chicken on a sea exploration. There are four Microgaming online slots that are referred to as the Golden Goose slot games. As such they are independent games but they have the same bonus rounds that feature a goose with golden eggs. It is this tenuous connection between the golden eggs and Easter that has this set of online slot games classified as Easter slots. In order to activate the bonus rounds players need to select maximum paylines and also wager the additional 5 coins per pay line Golden Goose side bet. The after each spin the Golden Goose randomly triggers one of the four bonus games. In Bonus Game 1 the Golden Goose fills the screen with golden eggs and the player selects the required numbers of eggs and wins the credits revealed by them. In Bonus Game 2 the Golden Goose awards a Golden Egg with bonus credits. In Bonus Game 3 the Golden Goose offers a choice between a pile of money and a golden egg. The pile of money will reveal bonus credits and the golden egg will offer free spins.

There are a number of other slot games that have laid claim to being Easter slots but the connections are even more far fetched. Therefore this Easter if you want to play an Easter themed slot log on to a Rival Gaming online casino like Ruby Royal or Sloto’ Cash and play Eggstravaganza.
