Fluffy Favourites Slot Review
Fluffy Favourites is one of the most popular slot games online. It is available at many sites and, alongside Starburst, usually offered as a source of free/bonus spins for new players. It has to be said that this 5 reel slot with 25 paylines from Eyecon Games has hit difficult times due to it's potential appeal to children. However, the makers have been unperturbed and a number of Fluffy follow ups have also been added to many casino and bingo brands.
As mentioned above, Fluffy Favourites is a 5 reel slot with 25 paylines. It's setting is a fair and the game features a whole host of fluffy creatures. These include a dragon, goldfish, rhino, hippo, turtle and even a duck. The game looks and feels very old school in comparison to the flashier TV and movie themed slots that now exist. In fact, Fluffy Favourites reminds us more of an end of the pier arcade slot game than a Las Vegas style slot game.
Wagering on Fluffy Favourites starts at just 1p a spin. This can be adjusted upwards by selecting 1 to 25 paylines and 1p to £2 coins. The maximum bet on Fluffy is £50 at Wink Bingo. An Autoplay feature allows you to select 10, 20, 50 or 100 spins. The top paying symbol is the purple hippo who will payout x5000 your line bet for five of a kind. The dragon (x1000) monkey (x500) and panda (x500) are the other higher paying symbols.
The appeal of this slot may well be down to it's bonus rounds. A scatter symbol - a picker (or toy grabber) from the old arcade pick games - triggers a bonus round when three or more appear on the reels. Select one of the symbols to reveal a win of up to x100 the total wager. The pink elephant acts as a wild and also as the symbol to activate free spins on Fluffy Favourites.
3, 4 or 5 scattered pink elephants activates 15, 20 or 25 free spins. During these rounds all wins are tripled. Furthermore free spins can be retriggered up to a maximum of 15 times. Finally sometimes you may be able to gamble a win on the turn of a card. Select high or low to double or nothing your win. The gamble round runs until you lose, wins exceed £32,000 or 5 correct selections have been made.
Fluffy Favourite's popularity is well deserved. The game is simple but fun without too many added bells and whistles. It has a cheery design that's bright and exciting. Graphically it does look dated though which may explain why Eyecon have launched other titles. These include Fluffy In Space, Fluffy Too and Fluffy Favourites Fairground. Instant win versions as well as jackpot games have also been added to the stable.
Despite The UKGC's interventions, Fluffy does seem to have survived relatively unscathed. Some brands have hidden it amongst their many slot options, whilst others continue to use it on their welcome bonuses. It's continued success also shows that game providers don't need megaways, multiple bonus rounds or gimmicks to appeal.
