Play for real money

Babushkas Slot is a 17-payline video slot, powered by Thunderkick software platform. The game is inspired by the Russian little dolls called Babushkas, which are placed one inside another. There are 5 transparent reels set against patterned tapestry background. Players are welcome to try Babushkas Slot for free, or visit any of the listed Thunderkick Casinos to play for real money.

Before you take a trip to Moscow, you are advised to adjust your wager. Coin value ranges from 0.10 to 100. The “Au­top­lay­” option enables reels to turn without interruption, for the selected number of times. Once you are ready, simply press the “Spin” button.

The game’s Wild is the Wild Egg, which acts as a replacement for all symbols. The Wild may land on the middle reel only. What’s more, if the Wild Egg occurs with a star, it may randomly activate any of the following features: Scare Bear, Charm Bear, or Dance Bear.

Once the Scare Bear feature is activated, the lowest value symbols will be upgraded, up to 3 times. During the Charm Bear feature all symbols on the reels will be upgraded for one level, once only. Dance Bear feature awards 7 Free Spins, during which, the new Wild symbol occurs on the middle reel upon every spin.

Within the base game, each time players land a winning combination any adjacent symbols of one lower value will be upgraded to match the combination, if a new payline can be formed. A payout is made each time and the process continues until there are no more winning combinations to be formed.

The aim of the game is to fill in the screen with the maximum value symbols and, if you manage to you do so, you will get a Wipe win with a multiplier of 100x.

Thunderkick have quite a nack for finding interesting ways of representing slot machine reels - just look at games like Birds on a Wire or Esqueleto Explosivo and you'll see what I mean straight away! No surprise then to find that this crazy machine featuring Russian dolls that pop out of their casings to become smaller and smaller for a chance at bigger wins is another of their creations.

It's a really nice idea for a slot machine but I have to say that despite having played a couple of thousand spins through the game now I'm still never 100% sure when I should be getting a "symbol upgrade" whereby all dolls of a certain color will change to the next doll in the chain. This can be fun because sometimes you win much more than you expect, but it can also be a little annoying never quite knowing where you are with the game and reading the instructions and paytable didn't really clear things up fully either. Perhaps I'm easily confused, I don't know!

There's so much symbol upgrading going on in a whole bunch of different scenarios that it's not too surprising to find the games paytable looks extremely poor at first glance, but you do often win on a large number of the games 17 paylines at once so it isn't quite as bad as it may seem.
As Thunderkick games go Babushkas is somewhere around the middle of the road. It's not an awful game but ot seems a little low variance to me, and I didn't like the fact the wild symbol only appears on reel 3 in this game.

The wild also randomly has a star symbol on it which can award one of three bonus features including a free spins round, but you only receive seven free spins and really I would have preferred the game just to have regular scatters as it can be really disappointing getting the wild egg over and over but it not awarding anything decent!

Babushka, those cute little dolls so popular in Russia, have only seen a few slot games based on them. My last play on a Babushka-themed game was from Russia with Love, a Playtech game. With a Russian background music, the gameplay was quite okay, but the Free Spins games were always better. Choose the Babushka dolls correctly and you'll end up with lots of free spins, more than 40 spins if I'm not mistaken, regardless of whether it was triggered by 3, 4 or even 5 Scatter symbols. That gave plenty of winning chances even at the minimum starting bet per spin.

I was browsing my favourite casino, Casumo, when I saw this Babushkas game under the New Games category. My first thought was...'hey, this looks like a Thunderkick game, by the look of the game icons'. Sure enough, it was, and I didn't waste any time to try it out with my deposit. I was quite surprise by Thunderkick's sudden release of a few new games all at once. Maybe they are feeling the pinch of being left out by most players, so they quickly got some new games going. But this can only be a good thing for all parties concerned, players included.

This new game, Babushkas, bears that distinctive graphics and quality mark inherent of Thunderkick games - simple, clean, yet attractive iconic presentations, all with muted pastel colours which aren't so vibrant but very pleasing nonetheless. The Wild symbol is a true blue dumb Wild symbol I'm afraid, because it does not pay nor do anything else besides substituting for all symbols. In the base game, a Special Wild may appear on reel 3, designated by a 'star' in the icon itself, and triggers one of the three Bonus games, namely the Scare Bear, the Charm Bear or the Dance Bear feature game.

In the Scare Bear game, all lowest symbols on the reels get upgraded, up to 3 times. In the Charm Bear game, all symbols on the reels get upgraded one time. In the Dance Bear game, all players get to dance, that's because 7 free spins are awarded, with a Wild symbol on reel 3 for every spin. If this doesn't make you dance, oh boy, something must be wrong with your butts, hehehe. If all 15 symbols are matched after upgrading, that's a Wipe Win, and one more upgrade respin is awarded. If all 15 highest symbol are matched, a special 100x total bet win is awarded. Having said all that, looking at the paytable may widened your eyes, or make them squint. The highest paying symbol pays 2x the total bet for 5 of them, whilst the lowest paying symbol pays 0.4x. Argh! This paytable is almost identical to that of The Wild Chase by Play'nGo, and are the lowest values I have come across so far!

Okay, so the symbols pay horribly low, the paytable is doing a low limbo, but the game plays quite okay, as far I know. Now this is a good thing within a bad thing - that a damn low paytable can still offer good decent wins, plus an enjoyable gameplay at the same time. Yep, just like The Wild Chase too, which I didn't like at all at first, but then liked it after more plays on it. I'm sure Babushkas will do the same for you too.
