Open up the Chibeasties mobile slot and wander deep into a magical forest, where whimsical creatures frolic over 5 reels and 20 paylines.
How do you describe the Chibeasties slot? In one word: Kawaii.
Don’t know what that is? Imagine a Japanese cartoon. Now imagine it’s based on cute, adorable, troll like creatures living in tribal forest with magical crystals.
That’s as close as we can get. But that’s ok, we like slot themes that don’t quite fit into a perfect box. Certainly makes it visually more interesting as you open up a mobile slot that is bright, colourful, and has no Ace to 10 symbols anywhere.
Each symbol makes you believe in this enchanted land.
Much like other Yggdrasil video slots, Chibeasties is not particularly complicated.
They like to keep things simple, concentrating on one big feature to give you big wins.
Here, you’ll be waiting for the free spins, and though you can trigger 40, you’re more likely to play 10. No multipliers, but one random symbol is picked to expand during the entirety of the bonus games.
Yes you can get the wild to expand. But we found this wasn’t half as interesting as if you get one of the higher paying symbols.
Reason being, how often do you really see 5 wild symbols on 5 different reels?
Whilst getting a 4 or 5 symbols of any of the others is far more common, creating multiple wins across all 20 paylines.
Yes, technically the bigger wins would happen with expanded wilds. But on a more practical level, with the wilds you are likely to walk away with about 20 to 30 times your bet, whilst the bigger symbols will give you a bigger chance of getting 80 to 150 times your bet.
The theme might be cute and cuddly, but this mobile video slot is more dangerous than it looks.
For one, the free spins don’t come easy, showing up every 100 to 200 spins or so, and with few big wins without it, other than the occasional lucky 5 of a kind wins.
So despite a decent betting range, we’d recommend you start small, and build up as you get a few good free spins round.
It’s not quite the frantic fun of Cyrus the Virus slot, but Chibeasties is a decent addition to the Yggdrasil slots portfolio.

Wild Symbol: The blue crystal is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except the free spins.
Scatter and Free spins: The free spin scatter symbol is the little wooden totem.
Before your bonus games begin, one symbol will be randomly chose to be the expanding symbol. Every time that symbol appears during the feee spins, it will expand to cover the entire reel. The wild symbol can be chosen.
The expansion happens after the first win - so you'll get the win first, then the symbol will expand and get a further win afterwards.
It's hard not to like Yggdrasil games, they really do try and come up with wonderful slot themes and simple game play that attracts all types of players.
Still, a solid and decent addition that can bring some great wins with those expanding symbols on the free spins.
You've got to love a little Kawaii right?
