Let’s not beat around the bush here; this game sucks. Not only does Kaffé Bar-Bar-Bar’en have a stupid and annoying name, it also has stupid and annoying looking people as the characters. Really happy, just opened our café and decided to spell it with a K, kind of annoying. Irritatingly positive looking people who think that letting their cat roam around in their soya mocha latte frappadull is fun and quirky. Bland does quite cover all the bases here. Pastel colours, coffee, cats, thumbs up and winking do not make for a good slots game. What in the world were the designers thinking when they pieced this thing together? There aren’t any free spins because I think that, deep down, the designers of this game are as ashamed of it as we are bored by it. It’s almost as if they didn’t want to take up any more of your time so they reined in the bonuses, reduced the number of symbols to 6 (one of which is the same symbol in 3 different colours) and renounced the very thought of a free spin, so that you, the customer, could leave with nothing more than a hazy recollection of something coffee coloured creeping up and fleecing you with a, wait for it… 5% House Edge. I would say don’t play this game but I don’t have to because you won’t.
