The Chibeasties slots game is produced by Yggdrasil Gaming. Yggdrasil Gaming take their name from Norse mythology where Yggdrasil is a magical tree where dragons lived and Odin sacrificed himself. Yggdrasil Gaming are one of the smaller slot development companies on the market at the moment – with a strong focus on the development of slots games – but have gained a strong portfolio of clients and are now branching out to round out their games offerings with other types of casino games. They lease their games out to casinos using other platforms as a bolt on package. Yggdrasil Gaming publish the Return to Player/House Edge of their slots games within the game help file. The House Edge of Chibeasties is 3.8%.
The Chibeasties are here to treat us to a taste of their magical world!
The Chibeasties game has 5 reels and each reel is 3 symbols high. This game has with 20 paylines and you can bet one coin per payline.
The ‘Blue Crystal’ symbol is Wild.
There is only one bonus feature while playing Chibeastie and it is triggered when you receive three or more of the ‘Wooden Mask’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded either 10, 20 or 40 free spins depending on the number of Wooden Mask scatter symbols you received. At the start of the free spins one symbol is randomly selected from the paytable. During the free spins whenever you receive this symbol it will expand to cover the entire reel that it landed on. This happens after you’ve been paid for any initial wins and can allow for additional wins.
In retrospect, Chibeasties simply fails to come close to the fantastic game that the sequel offered. Yes it is pretty and the House Edge is the same, but it lacked the depth and diversity of bonus features that were added into the second Chibeasties instalment. Chibeasties isn’t a bad game, not by a long way, but we’d suggest you’d be far better off bypassing this game and going straight to Chibeasties 2.
