Pumpkin Smash is an intriguing mix of Mexican and Halloween themes, which Yggdrasil Gaming has prepared for the month of October 2017, just in time for the scariest day of the year. The mix is shown in that you have the pumpkins that are typical for Halloween, but they’re also using piñata style action, to smash said pumpkins and get to the prizes hidden inside.
20 lines are fixed on the 5 reels of Pumpkin Smash. The players can get rewards of up to $180,000 in the game, or up to 36,000 coins. The Pumpkin symbols are present on the reels, along with wilds, free spins and a Pumpkin Smash bonus game where you have a lot to win.
Betting and Prizes
You are being allowed to spend between $0.10 and $100 during each spin of the slot. Given the number of lines which are available each round, 20, you will have individual wagers of $0.005 to $5 for each of them.
There are several ways that you can get good payouts in this slot. You might land a combo of five symbols on a line, and you could get up to $5,000 this way. Up to 7x multipliers can be applied to symbols during free spins, so the prize would jump to $35,000. The game mentions that it can award at most 36,000 coins in one round, so that’s a jackpot of up to $180,000 that you could walk away with. I noticed that the RTP sits at a decent 96.20%, which is good given the competition’s offer.
Pumpkin Smash Features
The easiest feature to get in Pumpkin Smash has a logo that says Wild, so it’s not hard to guess what it does for you. This is the wild symbol and it is only used as a substitute, working with all the available symbols though, no exceptions.
The Pumpkin Smash bonus game is the one that should get most of your attention though. You can access it with as few as two Pumpkin symbols, when they appear in the game. Each bonus symbol that you had will grant you a single pumpkin that you can smash. For each of these pumpkins that you smash, 2 to 20 prizes are going to be offered by the game. The size of the pumpkin influences the number of prizes that are awarded.
There seem to be three types of prizes that one can get from this bonus game. One is the usual cash prize, worth between 5 and 2,000 coins. Second, you can get free spins, either triggering them or getting additional rounds. If you have 3+ pumpkins, then the free spins feature is guaranteed to take place. Thirdly, you can get one of the regular symbols to have a multiplier of 2x to 7x for its wins, and this will be in place for the entire duration of the free spins.
Theme & Design
The Pumpkin Smash theme is a mix, taking the usual Halloween carved pumpkin and turning it into a prize filled piñata. You smash these in special features and prizes will come out. The majority of the graphics involved are Mexican in origin, with a Day of the Dead feel to them, since skulls are present in more than one symbol. It’s like a Mexican version of Halloween and it works really well.
Pumpkin Smash delivers a big jackpot, has a decent RTP, a unique theme and cool graphics, so overall I can’t find a single reason for you to ignore this gem.
