If you live (or have lived) in the UK, you will be familiar with the cultural obsession with the weather. The Genesis Gaming release of the slot game, Today’s Weather, has its roots firmly in England’s green and pleasant land as just about every conversation starts with reference to the subject. Indeed, the game was originally exclusive to British based William Hill Casino but is now available at a broader selection of operators utilizing Quickfire. The game may feel slightly niche, but in reality it actually comes with some fairly nifty features worthy of further examination.
This is a 5-reel, 25-payline Flash game with symbols containing all the high-card icons, starting from 9 through Ace and then weather-related symbols featuring the sun, rain clouds, wind and snow, plus Wild Weather symbols which pays out a jackpot of 2,000x the player’s line bet. The scatter symbol is the weather forecast icon and this represents the route to the bonus rounds and free spins.
Bonus & Free Spins
Land at least 3 scatters and you will enter the 5 day Weather Forecast bonus game. Here select from the work week and behind each of the days there will be one of 4 bonus offerings. The first awards five free spins, with ‘Tornado’ Stacked Wilds and Nudges an added bonus. The second produces eight free spins with ‘Icy Cool Snowball’ Sticky Wilds which hold on the reels during the bonus round.
The third free spins feature randomly awards 1 to 15 ‘Electrifying Lightning’ Wild to the reels during bonus spins, while the big kahuna wins you 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins together with a ‘Red Hot Sunshine’ multiplier that turbos your win by up to 10x!
A recurring theme in the slots we are reviewing lately is that the way to win the big prize is to fill the screen wall to wall with Wilds and so is the case with Today’s weather. This is a mid range and mid volatility game with sufficient Bonus round action to have a wild appeal. Take a look at the longer range forecast, go on, be very British about it!
