Okay, from a fatty nutty professor, let's drop down in size a lot, to be with a nutty squirrel. Hmm, probably a nutty squirrel trying to woo that lovely lady squirrel over there, or maybe he already has, because she's already the Queen. Hmm, whatever. This nutty squirrel sure is a fast mover than the nutty professor! Hahaha. The Nutty Squirrel is the Wild symbol, appears only on reels 1 and 5, doubles all wins with it, substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol, but doesn't pay anything for itself, it doesn't become stacked or expanded, and appearing only on reels 1 and 5 certainly isn't going to do much good. What a big letdown! The Golden Acorn is the Scatter symbol, 5 of which pay 100x the total bet, and getting 3 or more of them triggers 15 free spins with all wins doubled. More free spins can be retriggered. All the other symbols pay from 5000x down to 125x the line bet for 5 of each kind. Well, if not for the silly non-paying Wild symbol, this would have been a good paytable, instead of just being another average one.
What I do like about this Nutty Squirrel game was that the Free Spins game were reasonably easier to get than most other Microgaming games. Not only that, I also managed to get 1 retrigger in 2 of my Free Spins games, which wasn't a lot at all, but at least the retrigger came and not remained as just a showpiece, which is the usual case. Having said that, the retriggers were hardly fruitful enough, with most of the extra free spins coming in empty or with very low payouts, and not contributing much to the final winnings. Yet again, I was disappointed with the retriggers, as always. My best win on this game was only 53x my total bet, and that is far from being satisfying.
