Not only does it feature some really creative mechanics, but also uses a theme with a green clad women who hangs out with plants and throws poison potions about (very similarly to a certain comic book villain with a similar name, we have noticed).
Our friends at Casumo have signalled their intention to have Poison Even on their site soon after its release. Normally they are one of the first to have a slight up and running, so it may even be live now as you read this. Just login or sign up for a new account and get ready for something new and exciting!
Poison Eve – what you need to know
The layout of this slot is fairly conventional, with a five reel, three row format.
Low symbols are card values (10, J, Q, K, and A) and high symbols are four colours of potion (red, yellow, blue, and green).
The Wild symbol appears to be green poison ivy (ahem) leaves with the word WILD written over them in gold. Wherever these Wilds appear they always expand (or is it grow?) to take over the entire reel. Nice touch!
There is also a reel-high symbol featuring Poison Eve herself. If a player is lucky enough to land an entire Poison Eve (as in covering the reel from top to bottom) she transforms all other potions symbols into more Poison Even symbols. Check out our demo video below to see an example of this – it resulted in a pretty significant win.
How is the bonus game triggered? Not with three scatters like most slots. Only one scatter (or BONUS symbol, as it is in this game) is necessary, but it has to land exactly in the middle of reel 5. This is easy to remember because a helpful frame appears over that space during every spin.
The Flower Power bonus game
The bonus game continues the botanical theme. As soon as it launches the words FLOWER POWER appear and a random picker awards either 3, 5, 7, 9, or 11 free spins.
For each of these free spins, the frame sitting over the middle of reel 5 remains in place, and whatever symbol lands there is spread all over reels 1 and 5. This means if the same symbol also appears naturally in reels 2, 3, or 4 it can be a pretty significant win.
Even bigger wins are on offer if a BONUS symbol lands inside the reel 5 frame during the bonus round. This does not add more bonus spins, but does turn reel 2 into another reel of symbols matching the frame symbol. The wins get pretty big once this happens – for an example see our demo video.
Why we love Poison Eve
Poison Eve manages to be genuinely different from most slots in therms of mechanics and theme without being so different that players will struggle to understand it. That trick is not as easy as it might sound!
The expanding Wilds and reel-high Poison Eve symbols create a sense of fun and excitement in the base game (something not every slot bothers with these days).
The bonus game also manages to be innovative and familiar at the same time. Having additional matching reels come into play during the bonus game instead of just tacking on more free spins is a great idea!
We think most experienced players will like it – or at least enjoy trying it out.
