Shimmering Woods Slot Review
Shimmering Woods is a 5 reel video slot with 243 paylines, a RTP of 96.2%, high volatility and a maximum win amount of 25000x your bet. These numbers make for good reading and it gets even better when thanks to the symbol splitter this turns into a slot with up to 7776 paylines.
The gentle look and sound of Shimmering Woods can lull you into a false sense of security and make you believe that its a nice and friendly slot. It really isn’t though and you should expect to get a lot of dead spins and sessions that just eat your balance.
The fact that the multiplier increases with each win and that a random symbol is selected to be the one that splits (you can have up to 10 split symbols on the reels) also reinforce the feeling that something big is or will be about to happen.
In order to get to the real action you need to trigger the free spins which based on our experience can also be quite a task. When you do you are awarded 12 free spins with 3 designated split symbols. Trigger them again for 12 more and 3 more symbols and one more time for 9 extra free spins and the last 3 symbols.
Even then though there is no guarantee of a massive win. We have actually managed to trigger everything in free spin mode on Shimmering Woods and ended up with about a 200-250x win. Not bad but now where near the 25000x that is possible and a lot of those free spins that we were awarded were dead spins as well.
This is of course part and parcel of playing a high volatility slot and we would not want it any other way. All in all Play’n GO have once again released a very good slot with solid mechanics and engaging gameplay.
