The second version naturally has some more graphics and I like the fountain image in the background which makes the game a little bit more attractive and I think this interface is better structured and designed and gives me more enjoyable elements than the land-based pastiche and this same goes to the little relaxing atmosphere that only the pictorial richer realization can provide. Graphically neither of them is the best made slot because they barely reach the average quality level and unfortunately both versions uses some pictorial solution which I don’t like at all. I mean here the payline marker lines which are visible all the time while the reels are spinning and not just mess up the overall visual experience but in my opinion it’s a totally useless solution.
The slot is a 3-reel, 3-payline game where the bets must be between €0.02-€20 at land-based machine imitation and €0.01-€100 at second version but this latter give way more freedom to fine-tuning the bets. The slot uses surprisingly few symbols (bird, frog, flower, butterfly and fountain) and I think we can consider here as a positive thing as the chance for winnings are increased with this game solution and the game needs it to be attractive because the top prizes are not too generous as we can win just 400, 600 or 800 coins as Jackpots depending on the Fountain symbols on what line can complete a full winning combination. The center line is worth the less and we have to be satisfied with 400 times of line bet while the bottom paying line can reward us the most.
Fountain of Youth doesn’t offer any special add-on like Wild or win multiplier value so I believe we easily can consider it as a real mini-game. Anyway, it’s clearly seen that the potential for win big is simple not here at this product so we need to get on the little pleasant environment what the game provides. The winning tendency is average and though little amounts are credited to the balance as awards but personally I don’t spend too much time with the game because sometimes I quickly start to feel an itching desire for something potential bigger win which definitely won’t get here.
In my opinion this slot is only there to warm-up for some following more serious run at other slots and maybe the developer should re-consider this project’s possibilities and assign some more impressive numbers for winnings.
