Design and Gameplay
4 seasons is one impressive 3D video slots game. No one can pull it off like Betsoft does. The game is based on the Chinese zodiac signs as well as the 4 seasons of weather. Players can try to hit a combination on the 30 fixed paylines. The game incorporate an 5 x 3 gaming grid. Why fix it when it ain’t broken?
It is arguably the prettiest and most soothing Betsoft game to date, using a number of design techniques to achieve this. First the animals of the zodiac are all smartly distinct but from the big shinning eyes that can cause in the player a cuteness overdose. Next is the interface. It just feels polished as though it were glistening. The blending of the colors is beautiful and fulfilling eye candy. However, what sets it apart is the background. One can imagine this place when thinking of serenity. The gentle breeze, the smooth flow of water, the distinct rock formation makes for one mesmerizing image that will stay with you.
The Chinese zodiac is represented by 12 animals. All matching symbols pay depending on how many of the same animal you match. Each of the cute animals pays 10 for three matching ones, 20 for four and 50 for five. The golden cat acts as Wild. Land five wilds and win the 10 000 credit jackpot.
If you want the zodiac signs to grant you free spins, one must land on three or more Ying Yang Scatter symbols. The good news is that further free spins can be awarded during this mode. The number of free spins depends on the number of Ying Yang symbols. Land on three and get 8. With four on the reels get 10. By landing on five it grants you 20 free spins.
The feature that is unique for this game is the Seasonal Wheel. The wheel turns counter clock wise on every 30 spins mirroring the change of months. For every 90 spins the seasons change. What’s remarkable is that when a season changes the background also adapts to the given season and the results are breathtaking. It feels as if you’re playing a different version of the game. When the wheel lands on an animal it marks that animal as golden, and the ones next to it as silver. The Golden animal is worth 10x while the silver is valued at 5x.
Rarely does a video slot game affect the gamer on an emotional level just by the design and theme. Not only does it have a perfected style and beautiful graphics, but the package also comes with a one of a kind take on gameplay that is as absorbing as the feeling of tranquility this game conveys.
