Babushka slot from NuWorks is based on the famous Russian doll theme but fortunately the developer create a little story around it what I like a lot. Basically, we’re dropped into a little tale world and get to know Mr. and Mrs. Babushka and get an insight into their everyday life on their farm.
As its theme requires the slot got a nice, cute tale-like interface with rich colour usage and beautiful background image but I think it would have been better to not cover with black the whole background area of the reels instead I would have made it transparent giving more chance to the entire view to speak for itself and present more powerful pictorial effects. The symbols are likeable and cute and illustrate dolls, house, cow, snowflake, sheep among the others. All in all, Babushka has a lovely, pleasant atmosphere with nice graphics so at least the enjoyable visual experience is guaranteed.
I guess at this slot can speak about 2 symbols as the most important ones while the others are almost like just decoration elements. Babushka’s got the responsibility to present all the features the game has like Wild, free spins, scatter. Mr. Babushka serves the game as substituting figure and also can pay the top prize in a 5 of a win situation what is worth only the modest 2500 coins. Mrs. Babushka is the Scatter here and rewards up to 200 times of total bet and I think that’s the best quality what the game segment can provide.
But the situation is getting complicated when the couple appears on the screen at the same time then the male doll may become an expanding wild and covers all three positions of its reel. When 3 or more Mrs. Babushka trigger the free spin feature every doll on the table can be revealed giving her husband on the table and every doll figure add 2 free spins to the total. Usually, this number is between around 10 and that extra game is played with even more appearing dolls. Honestly, sometimes I don’t know how to get other Wilds on the table but because of them the free spins usually are surprisingly open-handed. Especially, in that case if the number of triggering female dolls is more than 3 because 4 would mean all the wins during free spins are doubled while 5 can quadruple the values of the winning combinations there.
Despite of the definitely existing rewarding ability of the free spin feature for me this slot is more of a joyful game than a business like gambling product. It can give some funny moments and some kind of relaxation but in my opinion is not there to chase some life-changing Jackpot win. But this slot is perfectly suitable for its primary mission and that’s why I still play it from time to time, to get some pleasant environment and get entertained but if sometimes a little profit is occurred I can’t complain about it.
