GECO Gaming (a Playtech company) is the same independent game studio that brought you several popular online slots such as Turn It On, Glory and Britannia and My Fair Pearl. The very latest online slot from GECO Gaming that I can recommend keeping an eye out for in August 2019 at some of our top-rated SA online casinos is the new Fear the Bear online slot machine.
This game has an Australian Outback/Nature/Wildlife/Koala Bear theme with 5 reels and 50 paylines, and you can take one spin of the reels either in the real money mode or free play demo mode from as little as 0.10 coins up to a maximum of 500.00 coins per spin. The two main special symbols to keep an eye out for on this game are the Scatter Symbols and the Wild Symbols.
The Wild Symbol is the Koala Bear, and it will only ever land on reels 2, 3 and 4 (the three middle reels). The Koala Bear Wild Symbol can substitute all other symbols on the reels to help form new line wins, apart from the Scatter Symbol, and it can also help trigger the Wild Drop feature. Let’s take a quick look at how this works.
Each time a Wild Symbol shows up, it will instantly climb up the tree on that reel and will remain above the reels. The aim here is to try and collect 4 bears on either of these middle reels to trigger a Wild Drop. A Koala Bear Wild Symbol will now drop down to fill the entire reel from top to bottom. All three of these middle reels can be filled with Expanded Wild Symbols for some really big wins.
That’s not the only special thing about this game. If 3 Scatter Symbols land on the reels at the same time you will instantly be awarded a guaranteed bonus of 10 Free Spin, whereas 4 Scatter Symbols showing up gets you 15 Free Spins and 5 gets you a maximum of 25 Free Spins, plus the Wild Drop feature is also active during the bonus.
