Teddy Bears Picnic House Review
NextGen’s Teddy Bears Picnic has to be one of the cutest slot machines you will every play! But it isn’t just its cuteness that makes this game so popular. This lovely little game also offers a great gaming experience with a payout that can be as high as 12,500 times your initial bet.
So, if you would like to play with these wonderful bears in this charming slot machine, it is best if you find out more about them and the gifts they bring for you!
To start NextGen’s Teddy Bears Picnic, you need to first set your bet. Bets in this game range from 1p all the way up to £50. To set your bet, you need to choose the number of paylines you want active, and the coin value you wish to play with. You can choose between 1 and 25 paylines on this 5-reel slot game. And the coin value ranges from 0.01 to 2.
Teddy Bears Picnic is a low-volatility slot machine with an RTP of 95.40%, so don’t expect many big wins in this game. You can expect lots of small and steady wins but for the bigger wins that come from the bonus games, you will have to put in a lot of spins.
It is best to keep all 25 paylines active so that you can increase your chances of landing spins. This does make the game more expensive, so if you have a limited budget, it would be a good idea to keep your coin value low. This way you get the benefit of all 25 paylines and you get to play more games. Combined, these two tactics increase your chances of triggering the bonus games more easily.
Once you have set your bet, click on the Play button on the side of the game screen to start playing.
To win, you need to land combinations of 3 to 5 identical symbols on one payline. The lower-value symbols, which are the playing card numbers 9 to A, can give you a maximum payout of 150x your bet. The higher-value symbols (the Cup of Tea, the Cake, Baby Bear, Mama Bear and Papa Bear) can give you a maximum win of 400x your bet.
You only need to land 2 of the higher-value symbols to create a winning combination.
Additional Game Features
When you trigger the bonus symbols and game features, you get a chance to win the bigger prizes in Teddy Bears Picnic.
- Honeycomb Wild
The Honeycomb is the Wild and it can substitute all symbols in this game but for the Basket Scatter. This symbol also gives you the highest payouts in the game.
- 2 Honeycombs in a winning combination = 10x wins
- 3 Honeycombs in a winning combination = 50x wins
- 4 Honeycombs in a payline = 100x wins
- 5 Honeycombs in a payline = 500x wins.
- Basket Scatter
The picnic Basket is the Scatter, and landing this symbol will give you two types of rewards. The first is that it will activate the Sticky Honey Free Games feature. And the second reward is a payout, depending on how many of these Baskets land anywhere on the reels:
- 3 Baskets win you 10x your bet.
- 4 Baskets win you 20x your bet.
- 5 Baskets win you 100x your bet.
- Sticky Honey Free Game Feature
This game feature is triggered when you land 3 or more picnic Baskets on the reels. Then, you are awarded 8 Free Spins. During this round, any Honeycomb Wilds that appear become stuck on the reels, which can really increase your chances of winning so hefty rewards.
This game feature cannot be re-triggered.
- Teddy Bear Wild
This feature can appear randomly at any point in the game – be it the base game or the bonus feature. In the base game, the Teddy will only slap a Honeycomb Wild to reels 2, 3 and 4. However, in the Sticky Honey Free Game, the Teddy can add a Wild to any reel.
Teddy Bears Picnic is a truly wonderfully designed slot machine! The background is a forested park and you can see the teddy bears around a picnic blanket. The reels are framed by tree branches and the symbols – even the low-value ones – are beautiful drawn. This game’s graphics really brings a smile to one’s face!
The sounds are standard as in all NextGen slot machines, though when the bonuses appears, the music becomes very lively, adding to the excitement of the win.
The animations in this game are also very appealing: the butterfly fluttering across the reels, the Teddy Bear Wild slapping the Wild onto the reels, the Honeycomb Wild dripping with honey, and especially when the Bonus game is triggered.
All in all, this is a slot machine that you will want to play because it just looks so good and is such a happy game!
If you love cute and cuddly teddy bears, then Teddy Bears Picnic might just be the game for you! This slot machine is not only a visual treat, but it also gives you a great overall gaming experience.
Those of you who prefer high-volatility slots may not enjoy the low payouts of this game, but the up side is that thanks to its low volatility, you do get a steady stream of wins that can build up your balance nicely. But if cute and cuddly and low-risk is your cup of tea, then Teddy Bears Picnic by NextGen is a game that you should definitely try!
