Keep 'Em Cool Review
Hacksaw Gaming is definitely going through a pig phase at the moment as this is the second pig slot within a couple of weeks with the first being Magic Piggy. However, it looks like Keep 'Em Cool is going for a more consistent theme with the pigs being at the beach.
Amazingly, there are different symbol states with frozen, half-frozen and unfrozen leading to some interesting gameplay. Of course, this also comes with additional special symbols and a bonus round. Enjoy the sunshine, pigs and an abundance of features in Keep 'Em Cool.
If you are looking for a slot filled with golden beaches and clear blue seas, then Keep 'Em Cool is the slot for you. There is a cartoon style to the design but it's consistent with Hacksaw Gaming.
On the reels, there are palm trees with coconuts as well as a cute little pig in an inflatable ring to add to the summer vibes. What makes this slot stand out are the animations throughout which improve the experience even more making it feel like an actual beach.
As for symbols on the reels, there are different fruits that combine to make the best smoothies. There are frozen, half-frozen and unfrozen symbols which are shown with little details such as broken ice around the symbols for half-frozen and a full block of ice for frozen.
The audio features an upbeat musical score with steel drums, rushing shores and other tropical noises. It all comes together to deliver something that feels consistent which is a massive improvement from Magic Piggy.
Keep 'Em Cool contains gameplay that you'd find in any other Hacksaw Gaming slot with the exception of the symbol states. This is something new entirely and we're not quite sure what to think of it.
On the one hand, it can be extremely frustrating to see a frozen symbol that could be part of a win. However, it can be helpful for that symbol to remain until it unfreezes to be part of a new win.
You'll have to make up your own mind about it! However, it's definitely worth trying out the slot just to see what all the fuss is about. Of course, the usual bonus round and special symbols are consistent throughout this slot which is a Hacksaw Gaming slot trope.
These 'cutesy' slots from Hacksaw Gaming usually have decent RTP but low maximum wins. Keep 'Em Cool does exactly this with a maximum win of 5,000x the stake and a high RTP of 96.16%.
The maximum win is not too bad as it's a medium volatility slot rather than high volatility. We found our wins to be fairly consistent but this was just our own experience.
Keep' Em Cool is your standard Hacksaw Gaming slot with the typical bonus round added in with a new mechanic such as the symbol states. We're not sure if this one will catch on but it was definitely fun to play.
Fans of Hacksaw Gaming's cutesy slots will appreciate this slot and will certainly have a fun time with it. If that's you, then be sure to give this slot a spin when it releases at slot sites.
