- A simple but attractive design with nice colours
- Only 2 Bonuses can mean the game gets boring after a while
- No limit to free spins means you can generate some big payouts
Sunset slot is a new game from Sthlm Gaming, a company we don’t often see but have reviewed in the past with games like Van Gogh slot. This time they’ve gone back to basics with a slot that looks simple and uses some traditional symbols like the Bell and Bar symbols. It’s a nice clean look though with a beautiful background and well-designed symbols. If you like your flashy animations and action-packed themes then this probably won’t appeal to you, but personally I really like it.
You have a 5×3 set of reels here during the base game with 243 ways to win and an RTP of 96.58%. What’s interesting though is that you have the ability to unlock a 4th row and achieve 1024 ways to win, but I’ll describe the features in more detail shortly. The main thing you need to focus on is spinning the reels to try and get a winning combination from left to right in order to win a cash reward or a feature using the base symbols. These are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10, Jack or Queen (lowest value)
- King or Ace
- Red Seven
- Diamond (highest value)
Sunset Slot Bonuses and Features
Sunset slot has other symbols in the game though that have different properties. For a start, we have the Wild symbol shown as a rising Sun. This substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Bonus symbol. Furthermore, it will trigger the Nudging Wilds Feature if it appears anywhere apart from the last row (more on this feature shortly). The Bonus symbol, shown as the logo for the game, is used to trigger the Sunset Free Spins Bonus.
Sunset Free Spins Bonus. As discussed, this is triggered by a number of Bonus symbols, with a minimum of 3 needed. If you do get 3, you’ll be given 8 free spins while 4 will give you 15 free spins and lastly 5 will give you 25 free spins. During these free spins, an extra row will be added to increase the number of ways to win from 243 to 1024. What’s more, by landing additional Bonus symbols you can increase your number of free spins with no limit, potentially leading to some big wins.
Nudging Wilds Feature. When the Wild symbol appears on a reel, apart from the last row, it will nudge the reel one step down for the next spin. If you keep the Wild symbol on the reel then you’re more likely to win.
Sunset slot from Sthlm Gaming is a simple game with just a couple of features. More isn’t always better though as I’ve said before, and in this instance I can see the simplicity appealing to some players, but not all. The Free Spins Bonus has the potential to offer some big rewards with unlimited spins available, but in reality payouts are normally just decent rather than enormous. The Nudging Wild Feature is also pretty simple but surprisingly effective and it comes around frequently which I quite like. So, if you’re after a game that goes back to the basics but stills provides some decent rewards, be sure to check out Sunset slot.
