The great-looking slot games keep on coming from BetSoft, and while we can admit that we might be tiring slightly of the same visual style over and over again, it is still fair to say that the developer keeps on delivering on a consistent basis. Gypsy Rose is the company’s take on the fortune teller theme – not unlike the snappily titled Fortune Teller from Play’n Go that we reviewed recently – but it brings the famous 3D graphics to the table and also tries to impress with some solid gameplay and features. We are getting the impression that there is not a huge amount of variety between the various BetSoft mobile slots, but that is not necessarily a bad thing as we are yet to be disappointed, so let’s take a look at precisely what lies in store.
What to Expect
We would hazard a guess that the majority of players in the UK that go for BetSoft slots will have already played many of the company’s offerings previously, mainly because they are not yet a big enough name over here to be many players’ go to brand. If that is the case, then you will feel right at home here as Gypsy Rose is played out over the same five reel, thirty win line setup that these players will already be familiar with. The wild symbol is as pivotal as ever, but on this game it also manages to introduce players to the first of the bonus features. Land the wild on the first and last reels at the same time, along with a crow, book, potion or gypsy symbol and the feature comes in to play, with all iterations of whichever of the latter symbols show up the most turning wild too. This feature actually comes along very often and can definitely be responsible for bringing in some wilds out of nowhere.
The main feature action here on Gypsy Rose is heavily reliant on the crystal ball. It may not let you see into the future but what it can do is bring a timely boost into play, each and every time you land it on reel three. Generally speaking, you will need help from another symbol too, and this is illustrated well by the free spins round. Land that crystal ball with a potion symbol either side and twelve free spins will be triggered. We cannot exactly describe this bonus round as ‘epic’ as the spins are simply free, with no other boosts, but it can always be pretty handy.
Take potions out of the triggering setup and replace them with crows, and you will trigger more wild action. All three symbols will turn wild and stick in place while a respin plays out. Change the crows, this time into books, and you’ll scoop an instant win on top of anything else on the board, and finally if you do your crystal ball magic with the gypsy, you will head off to a second screen for a pick a win bonus.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Gypsy Rose is a very creative slot and it looks as good as ever. However, while the wild feature is frequent, the same cannot be said of the others, partly due to the unique way in which the bonuses are triggered. If you are not planning on playing for long, then there is a chance that you might miss out on the features altogether, but for extended sessions there is plenty of value on offer here and we are happy to recommend this as a solid game to anyone that enjoys the theme.
