Babushkas

Babushkas Logo

It’s time to jet off to Russia to play Thunderkick’s latest game, the Babushkas slot. Babushkas slot is a game which is centred around those iconic Russian dolls which contain loads more inside them. Those dolls are actually called Matryoshka dolls. However, Thunderkick has decided for the purposes of this slot they are going to call them Babushkas, which funnily enough suits them.

The Babushkas slot has five reels, three rows and seventeen fixed paylines – meaning all seventeen paylines will be active during every spin. Babushkas slot is set against a plain looking patterned tapestry background and the reels themselves are transparent. On the reels, you will see that the symbols are all Matryoshka dolls in different sizes and colours. You have a red, yellow, pink, blue, green, purple and orange doll symbols. You also have a special wild symbol.

Wild Symbol

In the Babushkas slot, there is only one special symbol and that is the wild symbol. The wild symbol is the one of the Matryoshka dolls, but it is the one with the letter “W” on its chest. This symbol is special for several reasons. Firstly, the wild doll symbol is going to substitute for all other symbols on the reels to help create winning combinations. It does this by replacing missing symbols in combinations when it lands in the combination instead of the symbol needed to complete the combo. The second reason the wild doll symbol is special is that it is also the symbol which is going to trigger the bonus feature.

Symbol Upgrade

The first bonus feature in the Babushkas slot is the symbol upgrade feature. This feature occurs within the base game of the Babushkas slot itself whenever you land a winning combination. When this happens, the neighbouring symbols of lower value will be upgraded to match the symbols in the combo. If this creates a new payline, you will receive the prize and this will continue until no more upgrades can occur. If all symbols on the reels end up as the same symbol then all symbols will be upgraded. If after all upgrades all symbols end up as the maximum value yellow doll symbol then they will change to a ghost symbol and you will win 100x your bet.

Wild Mystery Bonus

The second bonus feature on Babushkas slot is the Wild Mystery Bonus and the wild doll symbol is the trigger for this bonus. The wild doll only appears on reel three and when you land the wild the symbol may reveal a star, which will award one of three bonuses below.

  • Scare Bear Bonus – The lowest value symbol to land on the reels will be upgraded up to a max of three times. How many times it upgrades will depend on the size of the bear in the wild symbol.
  • Charm Bear Bonus – On the reels, all symbols will upgrade one level.
  • Dance Bear Bonus – You will receive seven free spins and each spin a new wild symbol will be awarded on reel three.
