15 Golden Eggs video slot is set in a tropical paradise, with an array of colourful parrots and birds set to a backdrop of a jungle. Big payouts come from their golden eggs, as well as the chance to get onto a progressive jackpot. The team behind the slot at Booongo have a nice-looking slot here, but how does it fare when it comes to handing out the cash?
Built around the common 5x3 setup with a modest 15 paylines, this slot can be played from as little as the equivalent of 0.02 EUR, up to 50 EUR. Do check these limits as Bitcoin rates can change. There are nine standard symbols, along with scatters, free spins and a progressive jackpot.
There’s something tropical about those symbols!
These symbols pack a punch visually and really add to the game’s appeal. The high value symbols and special icons consist of five tropical birds and some golden eggs, with the low value icons consisting of the standard playing card icons with additional fruit added for effect.
You’ll win when you get 3, 4 or 5 symbols of a kind on active paylines, and this can begin from reel one. Only the most valuable combination on each line is counted. Get the golden egg symbol to trigger free spins. These will begin when you get three of the scatters mentioned across the reels.
The juicy bits
With the progressive jackpot you can accumulate quite a win, it’s activated during the free spins feature and requires 15 golden eggs to appear across the reels. This is a bonus though - and one of the reasons we like this game - because the free spins feature itself can be generous too.
Three, four or five golden eggs will trigger ten free spins and opens up the opportunity to win. There is no reliance on combinations here as with other slots, instead each individual egg symbol will signal a win in its own right. The amount each egg is worth will depend on the number of scatters you have across the reels at that moment.
First off, you might find it strange that a slot with a predominantly wild theme has no wild symbols, but as you progress through the game, you’ll soon realise that its omission is irrelevant. The sheer number of combinations and ways to win negate any need for the wild at all.
We’d like to have seen a higher maximum bet, but that’s just being pedantic. Overall, it’s a decent slot, with some great potential to take away big money wins. The progressive jackpot is a nice touch, as is the two-way combinations feature. There are worse slots out there for sure.
