Coffee has been a part of our culture for quite a long time, with thousands of cafe bars spawning all around the world. We all love drinking this beverage with our best friends, sharing some of the best moments of our lives over a cup of coffee. Microgaming decided to pay tribute to the coffee-drinking culture and made an entirely new slot called Le Kaffee Bar that was released on June 5.
The slot was made by one of the Microgaming partner companies called All41 Studio, and it invites all people who love drinking coffee to try and test their luck in a coffee shop-like ambiance. If you are lucky enough, you will create big wins and earn hefty prizes so that you can enjoy drinking your favorite type of coffee for a very long time. The slot looks and feels pretty straightforward, in addition to being very relaxing. In other words, it is a perfect game to play while drinking your morning coffee.
All the symbols on the reels are divided into three groups — low paying symbols, high paying symbols, and special symbols. The low paying ones include a standard set of card ranks such as 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. On the other hand, the high paying symbols include a couple of various coffee drinkers, a barista, a muffin, and a kettle. Finally, there are special symbols which are described further below in this text.
Le Kaffee Bar has a very hipster feel to it, and adheres to the latest design standards of coffee shops and bars all over the world, with chalk-drawn symbols, mustache-decorated coffee mugs, and more. Moreover, the underlying soundtrack, although a tad repetitive, can be described as “chill”, and made so as to suit the taste of morning people and coffee lovers.
The game features a standard 5×3 grid which is set in the middle of a coffee shop. It includes 243 possible ways to win and offers a couple of special symbols such as coffee beans wild symbol, which will be able to replace all other symbols except for the free spins symbol.
Then there is this Wild Spin Again feature which will grant you one free spin whenever you manage to match three symbols vertically or horizontally. Once that one spin is activated, the middle symbol will turn into a sticky wild and help you create big wins during the bonus feature.
However, the focus of this game is to collect scatter symbols which are depicted by coffee mugs. Scatters only appear on the first and the fifth reel and they are added to your scatter collection whenever you land them. Once you collect 10 or more scatters, you will be able to trigger the Free Spins feature. However, you can keep collecting coffee mugs in order to increase the number of free spins and multipliers that will activate once the free spins round starts. For example, if you collect 10 scatters, you will receive 10 free spins and a 3x multiplier. Moreover, 20 scatter symbols will bring 15 free spins in addition to a 4x multiplier. Finally, if you manage to gather 30 scatters, you will be able to play 18 free spins with a 5x multiplier.
Microgaming’s team probably loves drinking coffee, as this is not the first online video slot inspired by this beverage. In fact, they made a similar one a while ago and called it Cashoccinno. It was released back in 2014 and re-released in 2015 in HTML5 format.
