Where to play?
Easter Island from Yggdrasil Gaming is a 103 payline, 5 reel low variance non-progressive Polynesian themed video slot that pays 500 coins on a single spin. The game plays off on a tropical island awash in all colours of the rainbow.
If you don’t know the history about Easter Island, it’s known for its famous Moai monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people between 1250 and 1500. Most of the moai have overly large heads which are the living faces of deified ancestors.

The reel set is flanked by two Easter island Moai statues that becomes animated after each payout. Although it doesn’t contain a free spins feature it does have a Symbol Swap Re-spins bonus game where low value symbols are replaced by other low value symbols, the same scenario applies to high value symbols. Plus it’s kitted with an Expanding Reels and Expanding Wilds feature which we’ll explain in a bit.
You can play Easter Island from 10 pence up to £200 per spin on your mobile phone (Android, iOS, tablet) or PC desktop (Apple Mac, Windows) at one of our Yggdrasil Casinos. Paying symbols on the reels are 5 different symbolic creatures (high value) while the low value symbols are cards (clubs, spades, diamonds, hearts). The symbol that pays the top cash is the Red Eagle, 5 of them on a payline at the maximum bet pays 500 coins.
The average return to player percentage (RTP) of the game is 96.1% or a house edge of 3.9%.
The total amount of coins that can be wagered on one spin is 25 coins. The usual customization options like Max Bet, Auto Play, audio and coin range allows you to play the game that suits your style of play best.
Easter Island has 3 in-play bonus modes.
Symbols Swap Re-spin
The Symbol Swap Re-spin is triggered when you hit a winning combination during the main game. Low value symbols are replaced by other low value symbols awarding a re-spin and if you land a high value symbol, the high value symbol is replaced by other high value symbols.
Expanding Reels and Wilds
During the Symbols Swap Re-spin feature the reels expand when 3 of-a-kind symbols appear. However, when you hit 4 of-a-kind symbols 2 additional rows will be added to the reels totalling 65 paylines. If fortune smiles on you that is when you hit 5 of-a-kind, the game will be played with 103 paylines with 4 extra rows.
When the expanding wilds appears on a winning spin/re-spin during the base game it expanding covering the entire reel. During the main game wilds stick to the reels and appear only on reels 2 and 4.
When Yggdrasil releases quality slots like this one it’s difficult to find fault with it. Base game wins are okay expect payouts of up to 20x your stake thanks to the Symbol Swap Re-spin.
The bigger wins occur when the expanding wilds appear, you can win a cool 1,880x your stake on a single spin. The slots pays often but wins tend to be on the small side which is understandable because it’s low variance.
