Microgaming and Crazy Tooth Studios follow their eco instincts with Lady Earth, but while it might be eco-themed that doesn’t mean it skimps on lavish gameplay. The game board consists of five reels by five rows of symbols, which allows for a generous 51 paylines. The blocked symbols might seem like they belong in a Cluster Pays game like NetEnt’s East Sea Dragon King, but the more traditional payline system works well with the bonus features on Lady Earth to deliver an excellent overall finish.
Lady Earth watches over the reel case as we drift through deep space, twinkling stars accompanying us as we spin the reels in search of INSANITY RESPINS and the Mother Earth Bonus.
Pros & Cons
- INSANITY RESPINS trigger after every win.
- Five levels in the Lady Earth Bonus feature.
- Symbols appear stacked to help score multiple payline wins.
- Clunky betting interface.
- No free spins round.
- Non-paying passive symbol takes place of Wild symbol.
How to Play
The reel case fills the majority of the screen, making the symbols nice and large and easy to match. The bet toggle is to the right of the reels and depicted as a series of casino chips. To change your bet click the icon and press either left or right to toggle between bet levels, moving in increments that increase in size to make the interface more speedy – a much needed addition. The selected bet is displayed beneath the chips in the main game area.
The spin button sits right in the centre when playing slots on mobile or directly beneath the betting interface on desktop. Match symbols left-to-right across the game’s 51 paylines to score payouts, with every win triggering the INSANITY RESPINS feature and three Scatters needed to land the Lady Earth Bonus.
Delicately designed stone carved Lizard, Fish, Scorpion and Rabbit make up the game’s low-paying symbols, but it is the four elements of Earth, Wind, Fire and Water that will deliver the highest payouts and the game’s top jackpot. Fans of Wild symbols and Wild wins that have been pretty much standard since classic slots like Rainbow Riches first launched onto the scene will be disappointed to learn there are no Wild symbols in the Lady Earth slot.
Instead the game features a passive symbol, which doesn’t award any payouts. However, the bonus features on the Lady Earth slot make up for the lack of Wild wins. Land three Lady Earth Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 to launch the dedicated bonus game.
The Lady Earth slot makes up for the lack of Wild symbols with an in-game bonus feature that triggers after every winning spin and a dedicated feature that launches with three Scatters.
