Snapdragon Slot Machine

Snapdragon is a 5-reel, 50-payline slot game from US-based casino slot machine developer, IGT. It is one of those games that has built up a fairly big reputation, with its 4x5 layout and wide RPT between 85.3 and 96 percent. This game also pays left-to-right and right-to-left.

Snapdragon comes available on a wide range of models including G19 Trimline, G19 Slant, G20 Upright, G22 Slant, SMLD Upright, and GMLD Upright - plenty of looks if you get bored with a particular case.

This slot comes with the Stacked Wilds feature that has become such a big hit with fans of IGT machines. Mayan Riches is another solid IGT example, so fans will want to hop on-board this train.

Theme

The theme is very much floral here. The snapdragon plant is a very exotic plant. It gains its name from its appearance holding resemblance to the skin of a dragon. It is a plant that is native to rocky environments in Europe, North America, and North Africa.

This is not IGT's first foray into the world of fauna. Other slots that they have released onto the market with a theme relating to plants, flowers, or nature include the underrated In Bloom, the underwhelming Grand Monarch, and the smash hit Garden Party.

Symbols across the reel all appear to have been chosen and designed by fanatical members of the Royal Horticultural Society. Snapdragon plants in all their beauty and variations pop up on the reels, butterflies are also included, and the regular 9-through-to-Ace symbols fill up the remaining spaces on the reels.

The Wild symbol is represented by the blue butterfly and this symbol has the ability to substitute for all other symbols, except for the Bonus symbols, to complete any potential winning combinations that might present themselves on the reels after a spin.

Speaking of the Bonus symbols, these are the key to triggering the free spins bonus round. They are represented by the scenic view and they do actually appear very frequently across the reels so keep your hopes high!

Features

Snapdragon is a game that is not rife with bonus features but you might expect that from an IGT-developed title. My personal relationship with IGT slots is very hit and miss. Some I feel get it spot on with the quality over quantity rule but some I feel just end up feeling lacklustre. Here are the features that Snapdragon offers its players...

Stacked Wilds – the flagship feature of this slot machine is a classy inclusion. Stacked Wilds are one of the most popular features on slots and it is easy to see why. Every spin can deliver a monstrous win and it guarantees that the action and intensity on each spin is present. It does make the non-winning spins feel that little bit more disappointing but it's worth the pain.

Free Spins – a free spins bonus is always a sight for sore eyes on an IGT slot. We have all been there when the slot game has over-indulged our Stacked Wilds obsession and either kept a free spins bonus out of the equation or left us chasing it for far too long. In order to trigger this free spins bonus round you will need to hit three or more Bonus symbols across the reels. You downside is that you will earn a minimum of just five free spins. The upside is that these spins are easily re-triggered so do not fear. You might start with an initial low number of free spins but it is more than likely those spins will increase.

Summary

In my opinion, whenever a floral-themed slot machine comes to our attention it does not exactly set the pulses racing. Flowers are not really the high-octane theme that the majority of slots players want when they visit a casino floor. So the developer takes a big risk by choosing such a theme for its new release.

IGT just about get away with it here. The developer has a proven track record of delivering Stacked Wilds slot machines on a similar level to those by the behemoth developers such as WMS Gaming and Konami Gaming. It is that habit of getting those games right that makes this latest title a winner.

At times, the game does feel a little short on variety and depth but the action in the base game keeps the wins coming and you will always feel on your toes. It is far from a long-term slot machine so do not expect to waste hours playing it. It is a refreshing change from some of the more complex games that are beginning to invade the market so it will appeal to a lot of you out there.
