If the look of a slot was enough to tempt you in, and for some, it may be, then this one sure is well on the way to perfecting the perfect first impression. Set within a coffee shop, Le Kaffee Bar takes you into a world of mid-morning relaxation and opinion column-reading bliss.
Presented over a traditional yet modern 5x3 setup with a stonking 243 ways to win, this slot has a great vibe and really gives you a nice fuzzy feeling inside. The chalk icons are nice to look at and totally go with the coffee shop theme.
Those little symbols are so important
High-value icons found here compliment the theme perfectly, coffee jugs, cupcakes and three further characters setting the scene. There are baristas, one boy and one girl, all valuable but the redhead girl more so. She’ll give you 10x your stake should you get five across a payline. Low-value symbols are made up of the typical playing card icons, 9 to Ace. Those three characters can appear triple-stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4.
The wild within the game has a spin-again feature. Get three matching symbols either horizontally or vertically for a free spin, the symbol in the centre will transform into a wild symbol and held in place throughout that free spin, a further chance to get a winning combo.
Watch them scatter
Forget the other features to a certain extent, here’s where the action lies: The Scatter Collection feature. The scatter in the game is a coffee cup and appears on reels 1 and 5 only, when it does appear, you’ll get a coffee cup to collect. Fill the counter with ten or more of these and the free spins feature will start. It doesn’t stop there, as you can keep collecting coffee cups for further spins and bigger multipliers.
Ten coffee cups get you ten free spins with a 3x multiplier, 20 coffee cups get you 15 spins and a 4x multiplier and 30 coffee cups will bring 18 free spins along with a 5x multiplier. Make sure you wait until you have 30 cups to trigger this feature, then you can benefit from that 5x multiplier and much bigger overall wins of up to 2833x your stake on every spin.
Le Kaffee Bar does seem like a nice slot at first, but after a few plays, you start to see the limitations. Although those figures above look great, the low variance will mean that luck will play quite a big part in your getting into these features. On saying that, it is another stable and solid offering from Microgaming, and we kinda like them.
