The Winterberries 2 slot lets you choose whether to play 5 or 6 reels thanks to a Golden Bet, which doubles your chances of catching the free spins bonus.
The original Winterberries slot is beautiful, and the sequel falls a little short in design but not mechanics. It may not shine as bright with its frozen berries, but it gives you enough for a fun fruit cocktail.
The Winterberries 2 mobile slot is a 5 reel game where every win leads to a sticky win – the symbols freeze, and you keep getting respins for as long as you get winning symbols.
Set over 20 paylines, the minimum bet is a low 0.10 a spin, but really 0.15 a spin once you turn on the golden bet. And you’ll want to click on that button as that’s how you can get that 10,000x your bet top win.
There are no wild symbols, but that’s ok. This Sticky Win slot keeps the action coming by freezing all the win symbols on the screen and giving you many respins.
Above each reel sits a multiplier. Fill the reels with one of the same symbols, and that multiplier is applied to your total sticky win – as little as 2x to 15x the paytable value. During the free spins, these multipliers are doubled and can be increased to over 100x multipliers.
That 6th reel obviously has the biggest multipliers but is the hardest to fill. Still, the 6 of a kind win is worth the extra bet alone, both in the base and the bonus games.
The multipliers are nice. The top win of 10,000x your bet is nicer.
Overall, we prefer the look of the original Winterberries – something number 2 has ended up looking older than the first with its Winter to autumn look, rather than that beautiful Northern Light setting of the original.
But other than that, the Winterberries 2 online slot is clearly the better game. The RTP of 96% is decent, the top bet of 100 a spin allows for all bets, and you can buy the free spins whenever you want.
It’s a dangerous option; you can go and spend 300x your bet for the best odds, but if you can’t afford to, don’t worry. The free spins do come along often enough, and there’s plenty of re-spin to keep your budget lively.
