- A pretty boring design doesn’t draw your attention
- Free Spins Bonus can lead to extra wilds and multipliers
- Lacks of features makes this quite a boring slot
Habanero have come up with a new game, Nuwa slot, which has a bit of a different free spins bonus but unfortunately no other features to compliment it. A good main bonus can be all a slot needs, however, as we’ve seen in the past, so how does this one fair?
Looking at the game, you’ll see there’s a very simple design with a calming theme set somewhere in Asia I would imagine. It’s relaxing and might appeal to some, but it lacks the excitement and wow factor that some other slots have. There are 5 reels with 3 rows offering 28 paylines, and a generous RTP of 98%. You need a win from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Purple Lantern (lowest value)
- Green Lantern
- Orange Lantern
- Red Lantern
- Blue Lantern
- Orange Flower
- Green Flower
- Pink Flower
- Purple Flower (highest value)
Furthermore, there are wild symbols in Nuwa slot too which substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the scatter symbol. They only appear on reels 1 and 3, and when part of a winning combination, they will expand to fill the entire reel. The scatter symbols themselves are used to trigger the free spins bonus and only appear during the base game.

Nuwa Slot Bonuses and Features
Free Spins Bonus. If you land 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels during the base game, you’ll trigger this bonus. This will award you with 8 free spins. During these free spins, whenever you land a lantern symbol, one of the lower value symbols, it will be collected. You need to collect 5 of them to then trigger the Bonus Feature, a bonus within a bonus if you like. This will give you another 5 free spins, on top of however many free spins are left from the free spins bonus. Here, the wild symbol will appear twice on every spin, and all payouts, with or without the wild, are doubled.
Nuwa slot from Habanero is a pretty simple game that really only comes to life during the free spins bonus, and the bonus within it. You should manage to trigger the bonus feature quite often during the free spins, which is crucial because otherwise they really aren’t very valuable. The bonus feature though ensures wild symbols are on the reels, although 2 isn’t often especially helpful. More beneficial is probably the 2x multipliers applied to all wins here, although with just another 5 free spins it’s not quite as valuable as some other slots like those with increasing multipliers for each win. Overall, due to the lack of features mainly I didn’t find this slot very fun, and I’m not sure it’s the right choice for many players out there. I think if Habanero really want to make their mark, they need to come up with something far more exciting and fun to play. You can see some of their other slots here.
