888 Turtles Slot Review

Players will find that the 888 Turtles slot is an interesting and creative take on your run-of-the-mill Chinese-themed slot game. 888 Turtles does away with your customary dragons and replaces them with loveable golden turtles. GameOS are thinking creatively and that must be admired.

888 Turtles does contain some of your more stereotypical imagery but that is to be expected from any Chinese-themed slot machine game. 888 Turtles certainly won’t be the most common game you will come across this winter, but if you know a casino which does carry games from this developer, you should be able to find it with ease.

Developers

GamesOS has been on a bit of a rise of late. Their games have looked sharper, and contain some creative 3D graphics. When looking at the visual appearance of 888 Turtles, then, one must ask where did it go wrong?

888 Turtles contain shoddy graphics which are six years out of date, most of which are cheesy high playing card symbols. For all their recent progress in slot development, GamesOS seems to be on the backfoot with their 888 Turtles slot.

How to play

Players will notice that the wagering menu bar is certainly below standard, even those set by GamesOS in their previous titles. It offers basic buttons that can see players choose to bet anything from 1 to 5 coins per line, but the coin value is fixed at $0.20.

Yes, there are 243 paylines upon which to win, but no player is going to be happy about wagering between $0.20 and $1 per spin without a degree of flexibility. This is harsh stuff from GamesOS.

As we’ve mentioned, the menu also looks diabolical; something we’d have expected from a top developer in the 90s.

Features

Wild symbols: The wild symbol in this slot is the golden turtle – or snapping terrapin if you prefer. Wild symbols can only crop up on the second and fourth reels. They can substitute for all other symbols in the slot except for the scatter icons. Wilds have no cash prizes to offer you on their own.

Scatter symbols: Golden coins feature koi fish constitute the scatter icons. They can appear from left to right on the reels, and 3 or more of them in succession will trigger the free spins bonus round.

Although not true scatters in that sense, these symbols can offer you scattered wins worth 5x, 20x, or 50x your total bet when 3, 4 or 5 appear on the screen.

Free spins bonus: Players do get a certain degree of choice when it comes to the free spins bonus round in 888 Turtles.

Players can opt to play with 5 free games with a random multiplier worth between 10x and 30x, 8 spins with a multiplier of 8x-15x, 10 spins with a multiplier of 5-10x, 15 spins with a multiplier of 3x-10x, or a whopping 20 spins with a multiplier of between 2x and 5x the normal rate of pay.

The multiplier is chosen at random before gameplay begins. Players can also land additional spins at the same rate by landing 3 or more scatters during the course of the free spins bonus.

Maximum pay-outs

If you’re hoping for a massive non-progressive cash prize, you won’t find one in this slot. Expect to be able to win as much as 1,000 coins by landing 5 golden vase symbols on the reels of the game, but that is about as much as you’re going to scoop.

Of course, landing this symbol during the free spins bonus with 30x multipliers can see you win up to 30,000 coins, but that is going to be very tough to pull off.

Summary

888 Turtles is an interesting and intricate slot in terms of its free spins bonus, but that is where the magic ends.

The wild and scatter features (which aren’t true scatters) are too basic to care about, the wagers are rigid, and aside from the fact that this game features turtles instead of dragons, the graphics aren’t much to write how about either.

GamesOS have done better in the past, and we’d recommend trying one of those other slots instead of this so-so, primitive slot release.
