In popular culture, Babushkas are a set of wooden dolls that decrease in size as you open them up with them originating in Russia. Thunderkick decided to create a slot based all around these wonderful dolls!
Playing on 5-reels with 17 paylines, Babushkas has an RTP of 95.80% and a maximum win of 390x your stake. The slot is full of unique and innovative features that fit in perfectly to create something that is the definition of WTF.
The background of the reels is a knitted pattern to showcase something old fashioned. As the name suggests, the symbols on the reels are babushkas and each has its own unique designs.
There are 7 symbols and each represents a different age amongst a woman starting with a baby and ending with the old lady. It's a cute design that feels entirely authentic and completely creative.
As babushkas originated from Russia, the music is heavily inspired by Russian songs. It sounds like traditional Russian instruments are being used such as balalaika and domra. Overall, it feels innovative and another visually stunning slot from Thuderkick.
The premise of this slot is straightforward - as you spin and hope to win. However, the different features completely change up the gameplay. The wipe and winning symbol upgrade gives players the chance to upgrade symbols for even more wins - you don't even have to do anything yourself.
Like in most Thunderkick titles, the main buttons are at the bottom of the screen. The spin, autospin and bet level can be found at the bottom with other menus to the left of the reels.
Overall the win potential isn't brilliant. The RTP is at a decent 95.80% with a low volatility level but the maximum payout is 390x your stake. This slot is decent enough if you like low volatility slots, but don't expect life-changing payouts.
In terms of design and gameplay, Babushkas is one of a kind. It's truly authentic and unlike anything else, we've seen on this site (and we've seen a load of crazy slots). The downside comes from the win potential which is too low for modern slots.
If you want a laugh and some wacky moments, we highly recommend you give Babushkas a spin. For those of you wanting a bigger payout and something a little crazier, try out Not Enough Kittens instead.
