The new title of British online casino gaming business Realistic Games, Hot Cross Bunnies – Game Changer, is now live across its entire network!
The second release in the Game Changer series and the fourth release in the classic Hot Cross Bunnies series, the new 5-reel, 20 payline online slot introduces the revolutionary board game mechanic from the Reading-headquartered manufacturer, which generates a mind-blowing amount of bonus round combinations.
The medium variance title is the second such game to include the immensely common Game Changer bonus round, a ramped-up variant of the developer’s original Hot Cross Bunnies slots. Players activate the exciting function when boxing symbols like 10 through A cards, Take Reward, Cherry, Peach, Grapes, Watermelon, Bell and Pink Bunny, land around the edge of the reels to create a game board.
Players shift from square to square during the nail-biting round by rolling the dice which lands them on symbols to decide the prize they’ve been awarded.
When 3, 4 or 5 of the same symbol are won, squares with a pink bunny, bell or fruit will then spin the bonus slot. Avoiding the sign of the Take Prize is a positive thing, because it would put an immediate end to the bonus round.
What players want to do is trigger a function of the Game Changer with reels 1 and 5 displaying three pink bunnies on each. If this happens, they will not be able to lose and will continue to travel around the board and amass prizes until they hit a maximum payout of 1,000x their stake.
Creative Manager for Realistic Games Robert Lee, reflecting on the ramped-up update, said in an official press release:
“The Game Changer concept is already exceeding our expectations and Hot Cross Bunnies – Game Changer promises to be no different, combining a popular theme familiar to Realistic fans with a bonus round that offers fantastic engagement and win potential.
“Our portfolio has consistently grown this year with high-performing slot titles and instant win games that have added new levels of diversity and innovation to our offering. We’re already receiving an incredibly positive response from our partners and look forward to seeing how these latest releases perform with players.”
The network launch follows a positive two-week exclusivity period with the GVC community and is a supplement to Hot Cross Bunnies Pull Tab’s launch recently. The new instant win deal includes a Free Spins Bonus Round that improves the traditional format.
Realistic launched its video slot for Game Changer in late February, showcasing the new model of the same name. It revealed that it would initially carry out five games in the first half of 2020, each of which has its own interpretation of the idea of board games.
