“Mega Burning Wins: 27 ways” – 4th of April 2019
“Mega Burning Wins: 27 ways” is a new addition to “Timeless Fruit Slots” portfolio by Playson. It is a 3×3 classic fruit video slot with All Pays mechanics and 27 winning ways.
This game stays true to the portfolio’s visual identity: plump doubled fruits drawn in photo-realistic style topped with triple gold and red Sevens, which grant the highest win multiplier, and bell pairs and BARs as middle paying symbols. The freshness of the symbols really stands out on the deep-blue background.
There are two special symbols in the game: Wild, which is carved in letters on the reels, and Scatter symbol which is drawn as a combination of a word and a diamond star. Scattersymbol doesn’t grant payouts, but it triggers the Bonus Wheel. Wild is a substitute for all symbols, including Scatter.
The Bonus Wheel can be triggered by a combination of Scatter symbols or Scatter and Wild symbols anywhere on the reels. The Wheel pays a guaranteed prize which ranges from 20 up to 100 Total Bets.
This game has medium volatility as well as hit frequency and high RTP, which makes spinning of the reels quite a smooth experience. The game offers a stripped-back sound scheme: just the steady trickling of the reels and the Wheel.

“Sakura Dragon” – 25th of April 2019
“Dragons wait for you
Petals are wildly trembling
Big Wins forecast we” – Haiku by Playson
In this Japanese-themed slot, Playson tells the story of two dragon spirits captured in the stone statues. Dragon statues are hidden in the mysterious sakura garden and only a lucky touch can wake them up.
“Sakura Dragon” slot is set on a 3×5 grid and has 15 pay lines. Top symbols are drawn as Shogun and his mistresses and pay up to 500 line bets for 5-symbol combinations. The middle symbols are the deer and the fox, and low paying symbols are drawn as the royal suit of cards in the Japanese calligraphy manner. Top and middle symbols start paying from two symbols on the pay line which complement quite high hit frequency.
The key element of the game is the dragon, which triggers the ‘Wild feature’. Two statues beside the reels come alive and set free the dragon spirits inside to randomly spread Wild symbols, which are drawn as tender cherry flowers and act as a substitute for all symbols except Bonus. When the feature is triggered, one dragon spirit is guaranteed to appear. When fortune is your friend, you can summon the second dragon.
The slot has a Free Spins Bonus mode which is triggered by 3 or more Bonus symbols. The number of Bonus rounds differs depending on a number of Bonus symbols gathered: 8, 12 or 20 Free Spins. Payouts for the Bonus symbol are granted regardless of pay lines and come up to 50 Total Bets for a 5-symbol combination.
There is a chance of re-triggers during Free Spins, so the Bonus round can continue up to 50 spins, and the ‘Wild feature’ is more frequent during the Bonus mode.
Sounds in the game are relaxing and remind of traditional Japanese music with a noticeable grandiosity during Big Wins.
The game has medium-high volatility and medium hit frequency, which creates a good balance to wait for the Bonus mode.
