Casumo Casino has a brand new replacement for the unique Sunny Scoops slot already live and playable at their casino, the brand new slot is now called Sunset Delight and features the same bizarre ice cream scoops themed action that made the original such a breath of fresh air, but is the new version any good?
Sunset Delight uses the same graphical theme as the original Sunny Scoops but there have been some big changes in just how this game plays now, the slot still uses a 3×3 layout and has just 5 fixed paylines, there are now special Wild Scoops of ice cream along with a more standard free spins bonus round that is triggered by landing 3 of the special Scatter Wafer symbols on the reels, this then triggers the main bonus round where things have changed greatly.
The big attraction of the original slot was the unique way that the bonus round was triggered (3 vertical scoops of ice cream) and the potential for some very big wins during the bonus round with the higher paying scoops of ice cream, this looks to have changed greatly in the new version with a different kind of bonus round, with a new multiplier and just 5 free spins to start the bonus round with.
Sunset Delight Free Spins Bonus Round
The main bonus round is triggered by landing 3 of the special scatter symbols on the reels, this then triggers the main bonus and grant the players with an initial 5 free spins.
You will notice to the right of the slot during the bonus is a special Multiplier which can rise to a maximum of 100, during the free spins the scatter symbols is replaced by a Step/Spin symbol, if this lands on the reels the multiplier will move up 1 step and also grants the player an additional re-spin.
The step/spin mechanic is key to making the bonus round last longer as it grants the player further free spins and also raises the multiplier value which is paid out when the bonus round finishes, the multiplier however is not applied to wins formed on the reels instead it is simply a multiplier to the stake played that triggered the bonus round.
For example, if you were playing at £1 per spin and reached the 100 Multiplier this would result in a £100 win being added to the free spins total.
Sunset Delights Overall Thoughts
We were shocked to see a replacement for Sunny Scoops, and we are still unsure why this slot is being replaced and reworked, the new Sunset Delight version seems to have been toned down in terms of volatility, and players who loved the original slot will probably be very disappointed with this release.
The original Sunny Scoops was quite a fairly high variance game, and capable of some massive wins with the premium ice cream scoops and huge growing multipliers that were awarded for making a huge set of scoops in the bonus round.
In Sunset Delight this has all been replaced by an underwhelming multiplier that is applied to the triggering stake bet and as such the maximum exposure is now stated at 413x bet, the RTP (Return To Player) is a decent 96.3%.
Overall is a disappointing release from Thunderkick, for those who remember the original will find themselves looking for the same unique bonus round and win potential that simply doesn’t exist anymore, for new players to the slot you will probably find some fun in the bonus round, but we wished you had played the original!
