The Snapshot mobile slot is a simple 20 paylines, 5 reels with bonus games. Much like photographs from an old holiday, it will make you smile, but how often will you take them out to see again?
This is not a bad mobile game by any means, don’t get us wrong. Actually, when it comes to how it plays, it does so incredible well. The Android slot version is simple and didn’t break once. The Tablet and iPad slot has a great realistic background that makes you feel like you are playing in a real hall with slot machines everywhere.
Yet, this Snapshot slot didn’t grab us as much as we thought it would.
The theme is… holiday photos? From the characters in Randall’s Riches, Randall and his donkey are travelling the Realistic Games slots, taking pictures with the snake from Snakes & Ladders slot, sitting on the Hot Cross Bunnies and meeting the Shark from Double Bubble.
To be honest Realistic Games does not have iconic enough characters to really feel like this works. If this Snapshot slot machine was your first venture into this range of games, it would basically be an old man and a goofy donkey taking pictures in random weird places. We only know the references because it’s our job to.
At best it’s quirky, at worst… it’s an old man who has a strange photo fetish with his pet donkey.
The shame here is that overall, this handheld slot machine works well. You have a 500x your bet jackpot (or 10,000x your line bet, whichever sounds more impressive to you) if you line up 5 wilds in a row. You have wilds that help you stretch your budget in the base game and a free spins round that hits often.
Personally, we think it would have made a far better game if the Snapshot slot bonus games came with a 2x multiplier throughout all 10 spins. But it doesn’t you only get the 2x multiplier if the snapshot symbol shows up on reel 3. This means that we’ve walked away from this free spins round with as little as 8x our bet to as much as 70x our bet.
In one case we were massively disappointed and by the time the second case came around, it didn’t feel enough to thrill us. That said, if we’d hit that number earlier on in our game play, this might be a different story.
This game has potential and if it catches your mood, is not without merit. But it didn’t grab us.

Wilds: The camera lens is the wild symbol and the jackpot symbol. Getting five of these babies will get you the top amount winnable in this game. It substitutes all symbols except scatter.
Scatters & Free Spins: Get three or more scatter symbols and you'll get 10 free spins. You cannot re-trigger this feature, but it shows up relatively often, so it doesn't feel too stingy. In one hour of game play generally you can expect to hit this feature at least 4 times.
What is a little stingy is that you only get the 2x multiplier if the SnapShot logo shows up on reel 3. This can sometimes get you great results, or if it decides to go on a holiday of its own, get you very little.
A temperamental feature.
Personally, we think you should check out Go Wild on Safari slot by the same provider which has all Snapshot mobile slot game has and even a little more.
However, despite the weird theme, this game works well and has some decent jackpots to tempt you. Simple and familiar, you'll quickly get playing on a machine that offers much of the same.
