Eyecon’s 99 Time is an ice cream-themed slot and one who chooses to focus its theme on a beautiful day at the beach. The game promises simple gameplay, with a selection of cartoony and elementary graphics. Don’t let that fool you, though. The 99 Time slot has excitement to offer in abundance, and even dishes out a few decent non-progressive jackpot prizes to boot.
Of course, any Brit will instantly recognise the whole Mr Whippy theme (not to mention the 99 Flake ice cream) which runs through this slot. Plenty of recognisable ice cream treats can be found on the five reels, and 25 pay lines of this game, the most prosperous of which are the 99 Flakes we’ve mentioned above, and they can dish out wins worth up to 5,000 coins. All 25 lines are adjustable in this slot, and so are the line bets. Expect to find a floor bet of 1p per line per spin, while ceiling bets are capped at no more than £12.50 a game.
Players can expect to be able to find wild symbols in the shape of an ice cream van in this release. These symbols can substitute for any basic icons in the game, save for scatter icons. Wilds do more than that, though. The icons can also double the value of any winning combos in which they play a part.
The other special features in this game won’t come as a surprise at all to any player who has tried Eyecon slots before. There are scatter icons in the form of an ice cream seller, and these can trigger a click and win the bonus round when 3 or more pop up on the reels.
Wilds are also responsible for triggering a free spin bonus in the game. Landing 3 or more of them on the reels will trigger the feature. Okay, having wild symbols trigger the free spin bonus round is a touch original, we must admit.
The number of free spins a player starts the bonus round with depends entirely on how many wilds they have landed to activate the feature. Players who land 3, 4 or 5 such symbols will start the bonus with 15, 20 or 25 free games, respectively – not to mention, in all probability, a significant wild win. Any winnings you do pocket in this game will also be subject to a 3x multiplier, and the bonus feature can be retriggered when more wilds appear on the reels.
As for the second bonus round, this is a click and win instant prize feature, as mentioned. Once it begins, players will get to try and make ice cream. Doing so can see players select from various toppings, and these will dish out instant win cash rewards worth up to 100x their total bet.
It may be a somewhat simple release, but 99 Time has a theme which all UK players can relate to. Moreover, it also has delicious, sweet prizes up for grabs and doesn’t command a bomb in terms of bets either.
