Easter Island is a Chilean island, world-famous for its incredible head statues. While Easter Island, the online slots game from Eyecon, does feature the heads in the background of their casino game, the company has taken a more literal approach, with all things Easter appearing front and centre. So baskets of eggs, cute tribal bunnies and chubby yellow chicks are the order of the day.
About the Developer
Eyecon Pty Ltd started as a computer game company in 1997 but soon made the transition to online slots and casino games. Hailing from Brisbane in Australia, Eyecon has a refreshingly stripped-back approach to their games. They show little interest in bells and whistles, focussing instead on delivering robust creations and simple, intuitive gameplay mechanics for instant pick up and play appeal. Choosing this path has clearly proved beneficial as Eyecon have gained international recognition for their library of over 100 slots online.
About the Game
Like many of Eyecon’s offerings, a generous 25 winning bet lines are in play in this 5-reel, 3-row slots game. As you spin the reels, you’ll be aware of the pleasing cartoon aesthetic: characters and symbols are rendered in a chunky, 3D style. There are plenty of them that pop up on the gameboard too, split into 3 rough value categories.
LOW VALUE – In the lowest tier, you’ll find a pair of pink hibiscus flowers, a toothy skull face, a giant carrot and a basket of colourful Easter eggs.
MID-TIER – The mid-tier symbols are largely island iconography: a trio of palm trees, a stone and straw hut and Easter Island’s renowned head statues, here reimagined in bunny form. There is also a icon of a chubby chick clutching an Easter egg under its wing.
HIGH VALUE – the high-value pair are action-oriented, featuring a bunny sailing a stormy sea with a boatload of Easter eggs and another with a rabbit straining to pull mega carrots out of the soil.
There are plenty of SCATTERS up for grabs in Easter Island. 3 or more Easter egg symbols triggers the Prize Pick. You’ll be awarded one pick for each SCATTER where you can win a prize up to 100x your wager.
There are also 4 tribal bunny SCATTERS that double as WILDS. The 3 dancing rabbits (or the fourth drumming rabbit) can substitute any symbol except for the Easter egg SCATTER and their appearance in a winning bet line doubles the prize.
3-5 bunny SCATTERS also award between 15 and 25 free spins, where prizes are tripled! A Gamble Bonus is also available from time to time, offering double or nothing. Two available choices are presented and picking the correct one will see you double your winnings.
Easter Island is another solid online slots game from Eyecon. The Gamble Bonus is a minor and arguably unnecessary addition, providing the only deviation from an otherwise totallt streamlined slots game. The design of Easter Island is great, with more character and personality than the flat designs of some of Eyecon’s other casino games. Take a trip to Easter Island and see for yourself.
