Graphics and Theme
Yggdrasil has done an excellent job of making this slot look fun and easy-going, with a soft finish to each game element. This starts with the background, which is a clear blue sky, under which the green meadow of the island flourishes in a warm summer’s day scene. The board is dominated by two iconic Easter Island heads covered in moss and gently sway this way and that as the game rolls on. In between, them is the board itself, which has been made to look as if it was constructed at a similar time to the heads, with stone and wood being the main materials used. Normal symbols are made up of card suits carved onto a wooden background, whilst higher-paying symbols depict wildlife on the island seen face-on. The music is a calming ukulele riff.
Easter Island has three main bonuses. The first is called the Symbol Swap feature and is triggered when you get a winning combination in the base game. If you get a win with a low paying symbol, all lower paying symbols will be replaced with the specific symbol that you won with for one re-spin. Therefore, this swapping gives players more chance to get wins in that one re-spin The same thing occurs for high paying symbols, but the high paying symbol that you won with will be the symbol that all high paying symbols transform into for the special re-spin.
Next is the Expanding Reels feature. This means that the reel set will expand in the Symbol Swap re-spin feature. To trigger it, you must land a win with three of the same symbols or more. If you get a win with three matching symbols, you will only play with the standard 27 pay lines in action. However, if you get a win with four matching symbols, two extra reels will be added to the playing board, giving you 65 pay lines. If you are luckier still, you may get a win with five matching symbols, in which case you will benefit from 4 extra rows and 103 pay lines.
Lastly, the Expanding wilds feature is triggered in the base game. If a wild symbol is part of a winning combination in the base game or as part of a re-spin, the wild will expand to cover the whole reel which it has landed on. The wilds that land in the base game also become sticky for the special Symbol Swap feature and will cover the reels then. However, the wilds only appear on reels 2 and 4.
Yggdrasil makes setting up and playing Easter Island easy with a range of betting options provided along the bottom of the screen. Using this menu, players can set the bet per spin and win and loss limits. Once these parameters are set, players may spin the reels. This can be done either by using the manual spin button or by setting up automatic spins. To win, players must match symbols across pay lines from left to right.
