Le Kaffee Bar - Released in June 2019, this isn’t your traditional idea for an online video slot. The theme is a coffee shop and along with some letters and numbers, there are a few characters on reels that offer you bonuses and free spins. Of course, you’ve got a coffee pot and cupcakes too because really, it wouldn’t be a coffee shop without them. It’s a cute, quirky game that looks alright. The A, K, Q, J, 9, and 10 symbols look like they were written in chalk. Be mindful, the red-headed gal gives you 10X your stake when you get five on a payline.
Just FYI, while a coffee shop themed slot might seem rare, it’s not Microgaming’s first coffee shop. Le Kaffee Bar is a better, more updated version, however. There are 243 ways to win and there are 5 reels which is what Microgaming is known for. The RTP is 96,51% and like all games that are under Microgaming, it’s is certified for fair gaming so you know it’s trustworthy with your cash. The pay table will let you know exactly what each combination is worth.
You can bet 0.30 to 30 EUR for every spin on any device. Many of the symbols that will pop up will be the low-value symbols which are the letters and numbers. The coffee pots, cupcakes, and characters are there to make the game more exciting. The characters include a barista, a girl, and a man. The little red-headed gal with the moustache coffee cup will give you big wins. Characters will be the only symbols that will stack within the middle reels.
This game has a Wild Spin Again function to it. So when you have 3 matching symbols either vertically or horizontally, you win 1 free spin. The symbol in the middle changes into a wild and stays puts during the free spin. This whole process gives you an extra opportunity to potentially get a winning combo.
This feature is an important part of this slot game and can account for a lot of your winnings. The scatter collection will happen when the coffee mug scatter shows up on the 1st or 5th reel (the outside reels.) When a scatter shows up, it becomes a part of your collection and once you have 10 or more, you get free spins. You could keep collecting more coffee mugs to have the opportunity to play the feature with a greater multiplier. So your stake will be multiplied by more if you’re patient and hold on to your scatters.
For example, if you have 10 scatters, you’ll have 10 free spins and x3 multiplier. Now, if you have 20, you earn 15 free spins and your stakes are multiplied by 4. Save up 30 and you get 18 free spins with five times multiplier.
There are up to 18 free spins which are pretty cool. It’s great that you can collect coffee mugs and choose when to use them, maximizing your chances of winnings. It’s a unique theme with mellow background music. You can win up to x2,833 the amount you bet so that’s some big winnings.
Despite the uniqueness of the theme, it does fall short when relating to entertainment value. The graphics seem a bit week compared to other games where characters move or shimmer.
