About the Game
Introducing a 5-reel, 17 payline from Thunderkick, Babushka brings a one-of-a-kind theme combined with dynamic gameplay and stunning graphic art. Babushkas considers Russian folklore with its own take on the Russian doll.

Before beginning with Babushkas, players must first select their initial bet – this then sets the possible win amounts based on the amount wagered per spin, this can be altered during the game. Babushkas also offer the traditional auto spin feature for those gamers who like to sit back, relax and watch the game play out. Players can select from a variety of auto spin amounts from 5 to 5000, all holding the same spin wager. Auto spins can be stopped at any time allowing players to alter their setting or take a more interactive approach.

The nature of the Russian doll has allowed this developer to take on a truly unique play style. Babushkas focuses primarily on one singular symbol style of the Russian Dolls including a range of different colours and sizes. With 7 possible dolls in the game players have the chance to open them up multiple times in attempt to clear the board? When a winning payline is identified, the dolls featured will open to reveal a doll of a slightly smaller size and a slightly higher prize, if any dolls not featured in the initial payline match with the payline of the newly revealed dolls they are added to the pay out, allowing the dolls to break down once more. This will continue until there are either no dolls suitable to join the payline or until the board holds the same doll in each slot. If the board is entirely one doll the bonus Ghost Doll will be revealed awarding the player 100x their initial bet.

Within the game players may also come across the variations of the Wild Egg in the centre reel. The simpler of the two Wild Eggs acts as a general Wild, taking the place of any other none-bonus symbol to award the player an additional payline when possible. The same symbol with an additional star inlay depicted, indicated a surprise bonus. Once the reel has landed the egg will open revealing a bear, the bear can be engaged in a range of activities, each representing a different prize.

Scare Bear – All the lowest symbols on the reels will be upgraded up to 3x in a row.

Charm Bear – All symbols will upgrade 1 level at the same time.

Accordion Bear – Awards 7x Free Spins, during these spins the mystery Wild Egg will reappear on reel 3 every spin.

The Verdict
With a background, reminiscent of traditional knitting techniques and all symbols showing a variety of different sized Russian dolls Babushka brings something new to the table in both theme and in game play. The constantly evolving symbols allow for players to see their money roll over repeatedly, giving a higher pay out for still quite a simplistic game. This game has an amazing entertainment value without the need for complicated bonus rounds and additional theatrics.
