Endorphina is constantly broadening its games selection with an increasingly interesting array of Bitcoin slots. The latest addition to this catalogue is the breathtakingly beautiful Cuckoo. Released in April 2017, Cuckoo is a suitably springtime slot with a decorated egg theme. The game is based on the traditional Russian folk craft of Gzhel; hand-painted blue patterns on a white background which has become a staple style of homewear, clothing and art. In Cuckoo, the Gzhel patterns have been added to a set of eggs and clocks. Cuckoo has more to offer players than its elegant, unique design. The game also has extra features such as wilds, scatters, free spins, a gamble option and some of the highest multipliers to be found in any Bitcoin slot game.
The five reels and 10 pay lines of Cuckoo can be enjoyed with Bitcoin on most mobile, desktop and tablet devices. By setting the coin size and number of active pay lines (both of these range from from one to 10) players are able to set a betting stake from 10c to $100 per spin. The three spinning options – turbo, auto and spin – set the reels into motion within a porcelain clock setting. Like most recent Endorphina Bitcoin games, Cuckoo has a gamble option after each winning spin which gives players the option to keep their winning funds or risk it in a double-or-nothing game. The aim of the gamble option is to correctly guess whether four face-down cards on the screen will be higher or lower than the one dealt by the virtual dealer.
The main bonus feature in Cuckoo is the Alarm Bonus. This extra round kicks into action whenever three or more scatter symbols (represented by a porcelain Gzhel clock) appear on the first, third and fifth reels at the same time. When the Alarm Bonus is triggered, a large clock face will overtake the screen. This pretty timepiece will be set to a random time which is kept hidden from the player. The aim then is to move the golden second hand around the clock to collect multipliers. The further the player chooses to move this hand, the bigger the risk becomes but the prize possibilities become bigger too. Once the second hand has been set in the selected position, the minute and hour hands will start spinning round and if they land on the mystery randomly-selected time, the alarm will be triggered and the bet will be lost. However if the hands successfully make it round without setting off the alarm, then the bet will be subject to a multiplier which can possibly be as high as 2,400X. After one unlucky turn on this bonus round, players get one more free chance to give it a go.
The very first thing that stands out about Cuckoo is the high quality artwork. Everything has been meticulously designed in this Bitcoin slot game, from the eggs and clocks to the stylish card value symbols. This dedication to design is something players around the world have come to expect from Endorphina. When it comes to gameplay, Cuckoo is just as impressive. This is a seriously high volatility game with an RTP of 96%, which means big wins are in store for many slot spinners. The biggest win possible comes in the unique and exciting Alarm Bonus game thanks to the potential for a 2,400X multiplier. It’s this feature that really makes Cuckoo stand out, but the game in general is sure to keep plenty of players coming back time and time again.
