When we think of board games that have gone on to hit it big in mobile casino gaming, the Monopoly series from WMS is always going to be one of the first things to spring to mind. Mazooma has opted for something slightly simpler here, with the one and only Snakes and Ladders serving as the inspiration for this game. There are a lot of classic Mazooma touches to this one, such as bright, bold graphics throughout and twenty win lines of action in play at all times. Indeed, if you love this developer as much as we do then you will already have a good idea of what to expect here but that is not a bad thing at all and you can find out all about the specifics in the full review below.
What to Expect
Joining the core, prize-winning symbols on this game is the wild card icon, and as we have come to expect by now, this icon can fill in for any of the standard prize symbols, which are primarily depicted by the playing card icons, but not a whole lot else. There are three features on Snakes and Ladders and they each boast their own scatter symbol. While the wilds cannot fill in as any of them, you will not have to wait around all that long for one of them to come into play in their own right.
First up is the snake charmer feature, and a snake in the basket is the symbol to look out for. Land three or more and you will be able to choose from the triggering symbols, with your pick leading to the award of an instant prize.
Given the lack of reliance on free spins as a bonus feature when it comes to Mazooma, we were actually surprised to see them being included here, although we are certainly not going to complain! The coiled snake looks mighty uncomfortable in his position, but you will not mind about that when three or more of them land in view, as three will award fifteen free games, four will trigger 25 and five on the board will lead to a massive 100 spins. There are no special boosts or bonuses to the free spins, but they can be retriggered within the round to keep the action coming for a little longer than you may have been expecting.
The bonus action on the game is rounded off just as you would expect, with the board game itself. Land three or more Snakes and Ladders logos on the board at the same time to trigger the feature. Admittedly, this iteration of the board game is somewhat limited, and you will only need to keep on rolling and moving until you pick up a prize, but it is still a nice themed touch that really drives the theme home.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Snakes and Ladders does feel somewhat basic, even in the context of general Mazooma action. Nevertheless, it is exactly what a lot of fans will be looking for, especially with free games being featured so prominently. It is a fine mobile example of what the game maker is all about and we are happy to recommend it to players that enjoy the way that Mazooma goes about things.
