Snakes & Ladders: Snake Eyes Review
Everyone across the world knows of Snakes & Ladders as it's a universal board game that can be played by people of all ages. At the start of 2022, Pragmatic Play decided to create an online slot inspired by this game in the form of Snakes & Ladders: Megadice.
No one could've predicted how popular this slot was when it was released and how it continues to be successful even today. Naturally, Pragmatic Play wanted to try to recapture this magic with Snakes & Ladders: Snake Eyes.
The game opens up with 5-reels and 10 paylines (just like the original) and contains all the familiar faces from the previous game. Everything builds up to the board game feature, so you will not be disappointed if you loved this feature from the original slot.
Sadly, the visuals of this slot have not been improved since the previous game and we'd argue that it's gotten worse. The background looks incredibly tacky with an outdated design and only a few sprinkles of animation.
Just like the previous game, this one is set in the jungle but instead features more flowers and waterfalls in this sequel. It's safe to say that this slot is an eyesore.
One thing that we can commend is the amazing audio throughout. During the base game, there is a jungle beat that delivers a lighthearted experience. However, during the bonus game, there is a techno score that feels like it's ripped directly from a video game and it's befitting for the game.
Sadly, the base game does not have a lot going for it. However, there is more than the original slot as there are wild multipliers to be collected to award bigger wins.
The best thing about this slot is easily the bonus game and it definitely makes it worth playing. The experience is entirely changed with the bonus game feature and you will not be disappointed.
In order to get started with the slot, you'll find the spin button at the bottom right of the screen along with the bet level. It's easy to get playing and any type of slot player will be able to pick it up.
With a sequel, certain elements are supposed to get bigger and better. Unfortunately, that is not the case with Snakes & Ladders: Snake Eyes as the RTP is even lower than the original at 96.08%. It's still over the average standard but it's frustrating that it's lower than the previous game.
The rest of the statistics are exactly the same with a high volatility level and a maximum win of 5,300x stake. Whilst this is not bad, we were disappointed that the win was not increased even slightly.
In terms of our experience with this slot, it was one that was filled with exciting and memorable moments. Sadly, we've had this experience before with the previous Snakes & Ladders slot.
Snakes & Ladders: Snake Eyes is perfect for players who have not experienced the previous games and want something entirely different. The game is still to a high standard, but it's hard to compare it to the original Snakes & Ladders when that game was just too iconic.
