Tippy Tavern Slot Review – Snowborn Games
It is two months since I last reviewed a new launch by provider Snowborn Games. This studio is based in Stockholm and Helsinki. A partner with Games Global and becoming well-known in the industry due to successful launches. Snowborn Games states, ‘We aim to build artistically unique, easy-to-play, analytics-based slot games focusing on creating a unique game experience customized for each player audience’. Known best for the slots ‘Pile ‘Em Up’ and ‘Masters Of Olympus‘. Both games did incredibly well on the launches and fan favourites. In today’s review, we are learning all about ‘Tippy Tavern’, which was launched on the 14th Of March.
St. Patricks Day is celebrated on the 17th of March, known as a celebration of the death of St. Patrick and seen in Irish Culture. Celebrated with lots of Beer, parades and people dressing up as leprechauns. In the slot Tippy Tavern, we are in a classic Irish Pub, with a Leprechaun character holding his Beer to celebrate. There is a keg on the top right that displays the current Coin Booster. A Happy Hour Poster displays the number of stars required to trigger the bonus feature. The pub is decorated with green four-leaf clover wallpaper, lanterns on the wooden beams and bowls of nuts on the table. Low-paying symbols are different coloured bottle caps. Premium symbols are St. Patricks Day related items such as Smoking Pipes and Harpes.
The game background changes colour depending on which bonus feature is triggered. Items on the table also change to match this. You will also notice that Leprechaun’s accessories will also change to match; there are many small details you notice, which I love. Snowborn Games has done a fantastic job once again.
Tippy Tavern has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows; this includes 20 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.22% and a max win capped at 7,500x. You can bet from £0.20 to £30.
Tippy Tavern Symbols & Pay Table
There are 13 symbols in total; this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K and A. There are also 4 premium symbols; these are represented by Pipes, Four Leaf Clovers, Harps and Dice. In addition to these regular symbols are a Collect Symbol, a 1Up Symbol, a Wild Symbol, a Free Spins Scatter and a Coin Symbol. The highest paying Symbol is the Dice Premium, which pays 20x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all regular symbols. Scatters appear on reels 1, 3 and 5.
Tippy Tavern Features & Mechanics
Landing a Collect Symbol on reel 5 will collect all Coin Symbol values on the reel set. Coin Symbols have values between 0.2x and 50x.
The Coin Booster Multiplier starts with a value of 1x and increases with each 1Up Symbol collected up to 10x. This value is collected and stored per bet.
Landing 3 scatters during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins Feature. Awarding 9 Free Spins, the Coin Booster Multiplier is carried over, and all coins are collected to a Respin Pot Counter. This feature ends with a chance to win the total amount collected in the Respin Pot Counter, which is then multiplied by the Coin Booster Multiplier. Landing 2 or 3 scatters will award 3 or 9 additional spins.
Collecting a Bonus Symbol on each reel will trigger the ‘Happy Hour Bonus‘, collected over several spins and stored per bet. Awarding 3 Bonus Spins for each Symbol that lands, the spins will reset. Coin Symbols are sticky for the duration of this feature, and the Coin Booster Multiplier Value is carried over. This feature ends when there are no spins left or all symbol positions are filled with Coins. If the feature ends with coins in all positions, the Coin Symbols will change to 50x your bet. The win from this feature is multiplied by the Coin Booster Multiplier.
Overall, this slot has many similarities to the previously released slot Pile ‘Em Up within the mechanics and features included. The theme is impressively detailed and is the perfect choice for the upcoming St. Patricks Day celebrations. With the changing background and Leprechaun aspects for each feature. A max win capped at 7,500x and a Leprechaun Pub Theme. Plus, entertaining gameplay with a Coin Respin Bonus and a Respin Pot at the end of the Free Spins feature.
