A Pumpkin is for life, not just for Halloween.
Where To Play
Well, at least that’s what I try to tell everyone, but nope. Every bloody year the pumpkin’s turn up early October, and one month later they’re disregarded, flung to the side like an overly ripe banana. Yet the pumpkin isn’t overripe! It’s at peak ripeness! It’s at its most perfect!
Which leads me to the question, why does no one actually eat pumpkin? What’s a matter with it? Actually, I shouldn’t keep banging on about the pumpkin really, it’s not particularly relevant. The game’s the reason you’re here, isn’t it? Isn’t it?
Well, I hope so, and the game is lovely, let me tell you. Very lovely indeed, with very lovely graphics, a very lovely bonus round, and very lovely smooth animations and transitions. A very lovely game in general, to be honest.
The symbols are four different skulls which look pretty cool, and they’re all dolled up in Latin American attire with a red woman, a purple woman, a green man, and a blue man all featuring, plus the traditional hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs.
The best symbol to hit is the red skulled woman which pays out 1,000/1 should you hit five in a row. The bonus round is triggered by landing two or more pumpkin symbols on any of the five reels.
When the bonus round starts on Pumpkin Smash a few coins with break free of the pumpkin giving you a range of coins, multipliers, and free spins which can end up being very lucrative.
You can’t bet on different lines on Pumpkin Smash, but you can bet between 10p and £100 per spin. The house edge is a decent 4%.
There is an autoplay feature which comes with a number of autostop options.
Big fan of this. I’m actually a big fan of pumpkins in general, really. Probably because they’ve got a fat head. Think about it, everything looks cuter with a fat head. Pigs for example, blobfish, Wayne Rooney. Actually, less so him. But the other two, definitely.
But it’s not just the pumpkin that gets me going here, it’s the beautiful visuals, the decent house edge, the good range of betting options, and the excellent bonus round.
Indeed, there’s nothing that really lets this slot game down. Yggdrasil are great at making beautiful looking slot games, that’s true, but what they usually struggle with is making them super fun too. No such problem here, though.
