Babushkas Slot Review

What is this mobile slot about?

With wild bears literally scaring the clothes off little wooden dolls, this Babushkas mobile slot is on the wrong side of odd.

As slot themes go, we weren’t sold. A knitted colourful background covers 5×3 reels and 17 paylines of little Russian dolls. The trick is to get the smallest Russian dolls on screen for the biggest win.

Because everyone knows that everything good comes in small wooden knitted packages? We’re usually on board with Thunderkick’s stranger themes – after all the Toki Time slot is probably one of our favourites.

But here the colours fade into each other, and the dolls are, honestly, uninspiring.

The Babushkas slot is all about the symbol upgrades

The main feature here is symbol: if any winning symbol can upgrade by one rank to create a better win (because there are others of that rank on the reels), the symbols will upgrade to a small doll.

The smaller the doll, the bigger the wins.

Honestly, it’s easier to play and understand this Babushkas slot game than it is to explain it, but it’s not actually as complicated as it sounds.

Especially as even when you get a screen full of the smallest yellow doll, the most you’ll get is 100x your bet. Granted, for that to happen, you would have had to had several upgrades probably, but it’s a lot of effort, for not a huge amount of rewards.

Thank-god for the wild bears

Who bring both a little fun and character to a fairly pastel world. That’s because he hides in an egg, and when he shows up you don’t quite know what you are going to get.

The scare bear that can upgrade the symbols up to 3 times? The Charm bear that upgrades symbols by 1? Or even the free spins bear?

They make this Babushkas slot online a little more playable as they can genuinely create those chain reaction of upgrades to lead to decent wins.

Certainly playable, mostly because your budget won’t move around much, but not close to the greatness of the Esqueleto Explosivo slot.

In-game bonus features

Symbol Upgrade: All winning symbols of a specific rank will update if doing so creates either a new or long win line.

Wild Symbol: The wild symbol is simply the egg symbol with a W on it. However, if that egg also has a star on it, it can trigger one of three mystery features:

  • Scare Bear: The lowest valued symbols on screen will upgrade in sequence by up to 3 times, depending on the size of the bear in the egg.
  • Charm Bear: All symbols upgrade by 1 level
  • Dance Bear: You get 7 free spins, during which a new wild egg will appear on reel 3 on each spin, including the chance to trigger any of these mystery features.

Closing thoughts

The Babushkas mobile slot is cute enough if you like knit wear and Russian dolls, but we weren't inspired enough to get excited.

The symbol upgrade is quite good fun, especially in combination with those wild bears, but you never feel like this mobile video slot could really change your bank balance for the better.

Cute, but we'd rather play on other Thunderkick slot games that are visually more impressive.
