Thanksgiving Themed Online Slots

Published on: November 7, 2012 

Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States. The Pilgrims first celebrated it in the 17th century to thank the almighty for abundant crops. Online casino software developers have created slots machines based on Thanksgiving complete with the life style of the Pilgrims and the other iconic symbols of this festival. On this occasion two online slots from the portfolio of Rival Gaming are being reviewed and recommended. They are live at Ruby Royal online casino.

Gobbler’s Gold is the perfect Thanksgiving slot game. The introductory clip shows the Pilgrims at work. The autumn leaves in the background set the post harvest ambience. The leaves can be seen falling as the reels spin. The symbols are well chosen. The turkey, also known as the gobbler, is for many the essence of Thanksgiving. It is the most iconic symbol of Thanksgiving and it gives the slot game its name. The turkey is the wild symbol and can multiply payouts up to 5 times when substituting in winning combinations. On its own it offers the largest jackpot of 7,500 coins. The other symbols include the Pilgrim, his wife, their cabin, the Mayflower ship, the cornucopia, corn, pumpkin, pumpkin pie, apples and a haystack. As is the practice in Rival Gaming slot games, the animations in the winning combinations are excellent. The Pilgrim’s wife pulls out a turkey from the pot, the Pilgrim and his wife appear from behind the haystack and the turkey jumps up and down making the well known guttural sounds. The Pilgrim offers up to 100 free spins depending on the number of triggering symbols. All payouts are tripled during the free spins. The Mayflower icons trigger the Pumpkin Patch bonus game on the second screen.

Cream of the Crop is not a Thanksgiving themed slot game in the traditional sense. But since Thanksgiving is a harvest festival this slot game draws a lot of traffic at this time of the year. The symbols include pumpkins, corn, cabbage, turnip, radish, carrot, sunflowers, onion, chili and more. The corn offers the bumper payout of 8,888 coins. Cream of the Crop has an innovative way of creating the symbols on the reels. The seeds are sown and the crops grow out from them. The rabbit is the wild symbol. It appears only on reels 1, 3 and 5, but is a special wild symbol. It expands to cover the entire reel if it can make a winning combination, replacing the other symbols. Three treasure chests appearing anywhere on the reels trigger the bonus game. A gnome comes on the screen to announce this. The bonus game first takes players to a field with a number of wooden signs. Players have to click on the signs and reveal the symbol. A vegetable symbol awards a free spin and a small bonus. A treasure chest symbol awards a huge bonus amount. Players should be wary of the weed because it aborts the bonus round. Once this happens then the bonuses won are credited to the player’s account and the free spins earned are played out. This gives players another chance to win freebies.
