Easter Island

Easter Island

It’s one of the remotest islands in the world and features huge volcanic craters, beautiful beaches, unspoiled stone villages and of course, the famous moai statues. Of course, we’re talking about Easter Island, the mysterious Polynesian destination. If it’s a touch out of your budget to travel there, perhaps Yggdrasil can give you a taste of what this enchanting land has to offer with their fantastic online video slot. Easter Island is a magical and cheerful game with a tropical feel and a couple of lovable, talking stone head statues.  There’s a 5x3 reel matrix with the potential for expansion, taking the pay lines from 27 to a whopping 103. The game is packed with features including expanding reels, expanding wilds and the great Symbol Swap Respins. With impressive graphics, Yggdrasil have yet again created an attractive online slot complete with an immersive atmosphere.

Special Features

The 5 highest value symbols in Easter Island are the colourful animal stone statues, and you’ll find typical wooden playing card suits as the low pay symbols. Wilds will appear on the second and fourth reels only, substituting all symbols within the game.

Easter Island offers three exciting features:

  • Symbol Swap Respin
  • Expanding Reels
  • Expanding Wilds

Symbol Swap Respin

When you spin the reels in the Easter Island base game, each time a winning spin lands, a respin is triggered. Respins offer up the Easter Island Symbol Swap feature whereby many symbols on the reels are replaced with the triggering winning symbol, allowing a greater opportunity for another win. The friendly stone head statues either side of the reels play a big part in this; the left-side statue sucks up any symbols to be replaced, while the statue on the right blows replacement symbols on to the reels.

If the winning symbols were of low pay stature, it is the rest of the low pay symbols which will be replaced by the winning symbol during the respin. If the they were high pay winning symbols, then all other high value symbols will be replaced with the winning symbol for the respin.

Expanding Reels

During the Symbol Swap Respins, reels can expand vertically, allowing as many as 103 pay lines during the respin. This all depends upon how many winning symbols triggered the win; if that number was 3 then there is no reel expansion and 27 pay lines remain for the respin. However, if 4 or 5 of a kind triggered the win, 2 or 4 additional rows are added respectively, providing 65 or 103 pay lines.

Expanding Wilds

If wilds feature within any winning combination, they will expand to cover the whole reel. Furthermore, they will stick in place for the respin and also cover any reels that undergone expansion.
