The team at Yggdrasil love coming up with new ideas for games, and in E-Force they’ve opted for a group of bad-ass bunnies.
Rather than giving in to the dastardly fox intent on stealing their Easter eggs, these rabbits are armed, and there’s nothing they won’t do to protect their chocolate collection.It’s an unusual game premise, but that’s what we’ve come to expect from this developer!
Easterville is a peaceful village, with a friendly sheep grazing nearby and Easter chicks pecking at seed. But that all changes when the free spins bonus round comes along and the E-Force rabbits get ready to defend their Easter eggs.
The reels are surrounded by gun barrels, and those cute bunnies are prepared to unleash all their firepower to keep their chocolate stash safe.
The game is packed with fun details, including rabbits scurrying around in the background and peering out of windows. The graphics and animations are as perfect as we’ve come to expect from Yggdrasil, and the soundtrack helps to pull it all together.
There’s only one bonus feature in E-Force, making the game exceptionally easy to play. All you need to do is match symbols from left to right in any position on the reels to win a cash prize. There’s a Wild to help you, which takes the form of a robocop-style bunny. In addition to standing in for other paytable symbols, this Wild can also act like a Scatter, which is an unusual mechanic, but one that we were rather taken with!
Free spin Scatters only appear on reels 1 and 5, but they can appear stacked. You’ll need to land at least three to activate the bonus round, but since Wilds can act like Scatters too, it’s not as tricky as it sounds.
The number of Scatters and Wilds that trigger the feature serves as the number of free spins you’ll receive. It also sets the starting figure for your increasing multiplier which is displayed alongside the reels and applied to every win. Land another Scatter or Wild and you’ll be awarded another free spin and +1 is added to the multiplier.
The Easter eggs are the lowest-value symbols on the reels, paying back your stake for five-of-a-kind. Blue and green rabbits return up to 2x your stake, increasing to 4x for the yellow rabbit while the red rabbit tops the paytable with wins worth up to 5x your bet.
You’ll need to activate the free spins bonus round to stand any chance of hitting the big wins. The more Scatters and Wilds you can spin up, the higher the multiplier climbs and the more free spins you’ll receive. The bonus round is where the 10,000x top payouts will be found, but the above-average volatility means only a few players will see those kinds of returns.
It’s not an option available in the UK, but some jurisdictions allow players to buy the bonus round. It costs 50x the bet to receive between 3 – 9 free spins with a 3x – 9x multiplier. Or you can pay 500x your stake to receive 15 free spins with a 15x multiplier. Returns aren’t guaranteed to cover the cost of buying the feature though, so approach this option with caution!
We can always rely on Yggdrasil to come up with exciting and innovative slot games, and E-Force certainly doesn’t disappoint. Gameplay is fairly basic, with only one bonus feature, but it’s so well executed that the game seems greater than the sum of its parts.
It’s unusual to meet rabbits with such an aggressive streak, but these ferocious bunnies manage to be endearing at the same time. And even if you don’t find the theme particularly appealing, that potential top payout worth 10,000x the stake is definitely something any slot fan would be happy to land. Try E-Force for yourself and see whether you can help those bunnies outwit the fox and save their Easter eggs!!
