Where to play?
The cute critters are back, yup you heard right! Yggdrasil’s Chibeasties 2 is the sequel to the popular Chibeasties which features 20 paylines, 5 reels and offers a non-progressive jackpot of 250 coins.
Bets can be placed from as little as 20 pence up to £100 per spin and there are 4 realms which players can sink their teeth into. The free spins feature awards up to 60 free spins and the game also benefits from a ‘Wild Mutation‘ feature where a random wild is triggered further boosting wins.
”Chibeasties 2 brings back the cute little forest-dwellers with a penchant for fun and adventure.”
This highly impressive 3D slots can be played on mobile phones (Androids, iPhones, iPads or tablets) and PCs for real cash or for free. The theme of the slots plays off in a forest beset with cute magical beings.
There are 4 Chibeasties, the brown one offers the top cash prize of 250 coins for 5. I cannot help but notice that the slots introduces a strong tribal setting further augmented by a cracking audio and sublime visuals. Chibeasties 2 slots offers a theoretical return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.2%. The game has 4 realms you can decide in which realm you’d like to play.
Once you’ve set your budget aside and selected the proper coin denomination you can start spinning the reels. Just make sure that the line bet you have selected is within the confines of your bankroll. There’s also the necessary customization options such as audio, Max Bet and Auto Play that gives the game that personal touch.
”Each realm brings its own unique wild feature which means four times the action and excitement.”
The Realms feature comprises of 4 realms, you can decide in which realm you’d like to play. What I like about the feature is that each respective realm has its own wild:
- Expanding Realm: The entire reel is taken over and covered by an expanded wild reel.
- Spreading Realm: The wilds that pop up on random positions across the reels create an extra 1 to 4 wilds.
- Teleporting Realm: In order to get the best possible winning combination the wilds switch position with the other symbols.
- Mirroring Realm: Against an X and Y axis the wilds are mirrored, 2 new wilds are created when it cuts through the third reel.
The Wild Mutation feature is a cash cow, it is triggered when a bunch of wilds pop up on the reels. However, another realm feature can be created should the wild symbols from another realm appear. To give you the best possible win an expanding wild appears and then transformed into a transporting realm.
The free spins feature is initiated when 3 or more scatters appear any position on the reels, you’ll be awarded with 7, 15 or 30 free spins. The feature plays off in the realm where you triggered it-on every winning spin with a wild you’ll get a wild mutation. It simply means that you will receive 2 realm features for every wild. Should 3 or more scatters appear during the course of the free spins another 30 free spins can be won making it 60 in total.
From a technical perspective there’s nothing out of the ordinary about Chibeasties 2. But, it’s still a darn good addition to an already impressive Yggdrasil game library.
This medium variance slots does bring a bunch of simmering wilds and a free spins feature where up to 60 free spins can be won to the table. Of the 4 Realms the Spreading Realm is my favourite as it allows you to get 4 extra wilds. Wins during the base game are good but it’s the free spins feature that delivers the real money spins.
