Game of the Week – Snegurochka
Snegurochka, also known as The Snow Maiden, is a Russian fairy tale character. The classic Russian winter story has now come to life in the form of an online pokie game at Australian Online Casinos. Snegurochka is the latest 5 reel, 100 payline pokie from Spinomenal.
The game features a solid mix of pay symbols that pay prizes up to 1,000x your initial bet. Let’s learn more about this game and the prizes available.
Snegurochka Brings the Classic Russian Fairy Tale to Life
Snegurochka is the latest online pokie from Spinomenal. It features The Snow Maiden from classic Russian fairy tales in a wintery theme. The 5-Reel, up to 100 payline game has a ton of classic winter-themed pay symbols available.
Royals serve as the lowest pay symbols on this game. Christmas ornaments and pine cones are the next highest paying symbols. Christmas presents and New Year’s champagne glasses are medium-high paying symbols.
The highest paying symbol in this game is the snowflake scatter. Unlike many modern video pokies, the scatter is only a paying symbol. It does not unlock any bonus features. However, you will be paid for three or more symbols. Unlike the other symbols, the scatters can appear anywhere on the board and pay.
This game offers a variety of stakes depending on how many lines you play. You can choose to play from 10 to 100 lines at a time. Playing 10 lines, you can wager from .10 per spin up to $100 per spin. These bets increase depending on the number of lines you play. If you play 100 lines, you will bet from $1 to $1,000 per spin.
Like many modern video pokies, you will have to land multi-line wins to turn a profit on this game. The more lines you play, the more you can win. Fortunately, The Snow Maiden will sometimes give you a little help.
The Snow Maiden Wilds
The Snow Maiden will appear as a wild on any reel. When hit, the symbol substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter. The wild is actually an expanded wild that can cover anywhere from a single row to all four rows.
This wild triggers very frequently with varying results. However, it can definitely result in some huge wins. The best thing about this wild is that it is not limited to a single reel. As you can see in the photo above, it can hit on multiple reels. This can unlock massive wins.
Snegurochka Plays Better Than 95.6% RTP Suggests
When I first started reviewing this game, I did not expect much due to two reasons. First, the game does not have any bonus features like a free spins game or even cascading reels. With an old school version of a scatter and The Snow Maiden wilds as its only extra features, I expected this game to be super high variance.
Next, the game has an RTP of just 95.6%. This is generally average at best for online pokies. However, from my testing, the game plays a lot looser than the RTP would suggest. The game is also great for those with smaller bankrolls as you can adjust the number of lines and how much you bet. I personally recommend you play 100 lines, even if you just play $1 per spin. That gives you the best chance of scoring some massive wins.
Snegurochka is available at Wild Card City, King Johnnie Casino, and all online casinos in Australia offering Spinomenal pokies. While it doesn’t offer a ton of bonus features, the better than average payouts for this game makes it one worth checking out.
