Pumpkin Smash the Latest Slot From Yggdrasil Now Available to UK Players!

Vera and John Casino has recently added the Pumpkin Smash Slot from Yggdrasil to their casino, this is a Day of the Dead inspired slot with a Halloween twist that has only recently become available to UK players but was released to many other countries last year.

Pumpkin Smash is a 20 payline low to medium variance slot with a variety of bonus features that all start from landing 2 or more of the Special Pumpkin Bonus symbols on the reels, as the title suggests you will smashing lots of pumpkins on this machine to reveal a variety of random coin prizes, free spins, and multipliers.

The base game is a fairly simplistic affair with just a few wilds and several of the bonus symbols scattered on the reels along with the regular symbols, the main bonus feature, however, is triggered by just 2 or more the bonus symbols and as such does trigger very frequently.

The flip side though is that it’s quite possible to simply earn coin rewards from the smashed pumpkins, the free spins and subsequent multipliers do seem a little harder to get in our playtesting.

Get 3 pumpkins however and you are guaranteed to get some free spins just like a regular slot machine bonus, you can also tell from the size of the pumpkin (hat) just how much treasure is going to be contained inside it (look for the pumpkins with the biggest hats that are filled with rewards!).

If you do manage to trigger the free spins, you can earn additional pumpkin smashes during the free spins, earning additional spins, extra multipliers or more coin rewards.

If you are a fan of the less volatile machines then you should have plenty of fun playing this slot with the regular bonus rounds on offer.

Overall Opinions

Pumpkin Smash is a gorgeous looking slot from Yggdrasil, the Day of the Dead theme combined with Halloween sounds bizarre but it has been done very well here with stunning visuals.

Since this is a lower variance slot machine from Yggdrasil it may not appeal to the hardcore slot players, but there’s definitely plenty of fun and excitement to be had with the regular bonus features triggering with just 2 symbols.

The main negative from our playtests is really just the frequency of only coin rewards from the 2 scatter triggers, these bonuses do seem quite frequent so I guess you cant have it all!

The free spins round is where things really heat up with extra pumpkin re-triggers and new modifiers being added to the free spins.

One to check out if you enjoy low to medium variance slots with regular bonus features.
