Whats not so hot?
King Carrot is a fresh video slot from Hacksaw Gaming. The playing field is large with 7 reels and 7 rows.
Instead of paylines, the payout system is based around Clusters. The bonus rounds include King Carrot, Epic King Carrot, Bird Attack, Free Spins, and Bonus Buy.
That makes for quite some excitement, no doubt. The volatility is medium, while the jackpot clocks in at 10,000x your stake.
Play for the max bet and you can win up to $1 million on a single spin! The bets can range from $0.20 to $100.
The RTP of King Carrot is 96.30%. There are RTP ranges, so watch out.
All the other RTP options are way worse and not worth it. They can be as low as 94.51%, 92.28%, even 88.28%.
The symbols of King Carrot are all cheerful. Thematically, the slot is a fruit slot by nature, it’s also funny.
It’s a colourful affair and the symbols have hilarious faces. They’re easy on the eyes if you enjoy light-hearted games.
As for the symbols, you can look forward to grapes, pears, strawberries, lemons, and even watermelons.
For large clusters, you can win 500x your stake when you fill the reels with carrot symbols. Wilds can land anywhere on the reels.
Special King Carrot symbols can land at any point. When they do, they transform random standard symbols into carrot symbols.
These are the most valuable of them all. If more than one King Carrot symbol lands, you’ll get even more symbol transformations. Also, you’ll get a respin with this bonus round active.
During a symbol transformation, Epic King Carrot symbols can replace standard carrots. For every Epic King Carrot, you’ll get a random win multiplier for a carrot Cluster.
These can range from 2x to 100x and you can get more than one involved as well. In that case, the win multipliers add to each other.
At random, birds can show up and remove a number of rows and reels. Then, new symbols will drop in, giving you a chance to capitalize.
Note that Wilds and Free Spins symbols remain for the duration of the feature.
Find 3 Free Spins symbols on the board and you’ll get the Free Spins Feature with 10 free spins.
During free spins, all symbols transformed by King Carrots remain that way until the end of the feature. Respins are on offer as in the base game.
For 110x your bet, you can buy the Free Spins Feature outright. This also increases the RTP to 96.41%.
King Carrot slot has a lot of great animations that pop especially during the bonus rounds.
The bonus rounds trigger often and they pay big! On the whole there’s plenty of excitement all around.
As for the wins, we had one lucky free spins trigger that paid us a huge 236x our stake. Did we make a profit?
Yes, we did make a small profit.
King Carrot is an excellent little funny slot from Hacksaw Gaming. It’s quite complex, too, with its symbol transformations. Those can happen on any spin and are more prominent during free spins.
That’s also where you can look forward to winning big. Up to 10,000x your stake, in fact!
On the minus side, there are RTP ranges and the absence of Cascades is puzzling as well. For such a grid-based slot, you’d expect to see that bit. It’s not here, though, so keep that in mind.
If you prefer Asian themes, go for the brilliant Tale of Kyubiko from Play’n GO. It’s a 5×3 slot with tremendous visuals and a standard 3×3 setup with 5 paylines.
The volatility is lowish and the jackpot is 2,250x your bet. The bonus rounds include Inari’s Fortune and Inari’s Dance. These can combine for some nice Wild combos, with big wins on offer!
