There’s a reason why Eyecon’s series of slots are called Fluffy Favourites. Stuffed animals on the reels, appearing in different settings. It doesn’t sound like much, but after Fluffy Favourites and Fluffy Too, there’s no doubt this is the series that can keep on giving. After a trip to the promenade, the next trip for the animals is the fairground, and Fluffy Favourites Fairground Slot doesn’t disappoint.
Much like the other Fluffy slots, Fluffy Favourites Fairground plays in a similar style. This time round, though, the critters have been updated with snazzy new graphics. Played across five reels and 25 pay lines, we’re whisked to the fairground with Big Top and Ferris Wheel in the background. Front and centre is the reel case, with the familiar symbols including the Rhino, Clownfish, Giraffe, Gorilla, Hippo, Dragon, Panda, Lion, Duck and Turtle. They all resemble cute plush toys, and we’d definitely be happy snuggling up next to them.
Fun, fairground music plays in the background as we spin the reels, and the contrast of purple Hippos, blue Rhinos and yellow Ducks give us a rainbow of soft toys. Cute! Even cuter is when we form winning combinations, especially with the Wild Elephant that does a little dance when it helps to create a win. Bonus games are signalled with a neat little animation, where the fairground fun continues.
Each symbol rewards us when it appears three, four or five times, with the Hippo paying us up to 5,000 coins when it appears five times. And that’s just one of the smaller bonuses courtesy of the fluffy animals. The Elephant is the slot’s Wild and can double all wins when part of a winning line. Not only that, it’s also the slot’s second Scatter, along with the Big Top symbol. They work together to launch the Free Spins, giving us 15, 20 or 25 Free Spins for three, four or five appearances anywhere on the reels.
The beauty of the Free Spins is that they can be retriggered up to 15 times, potentially awarding us with up to 400 extra spins. Each Fluffy Favourites slot has a special bonus game, and this time round it’s the Hook-A-Fluffy game. Triggered when three or more Claw symbols appear, this takes us inside the Big Top where we see the cuddly critters sliding down a water chute. It’s up to us to reel them in and win a Multiplier to boost our total stake.
In 2006, Eyecon gave us Fluffy Favourites and we fell in love with it. A long wait later in 2015, we got Fluffy Too, and now we can enjoy all the magic on the next level with Fluffy Favourites Fairground Slot. It’s a great update to a loveable, hugely rewarding slot. Hopefully it will be an even shorter wait until the next one.
