If you like Bitcoin slots that are slightly different, this one from BetSoft is definitely a good choice. Not content to work within the normal confines of slots, Pinocchio actually sees you travelling to different locations found in the famous novel – different worlds offering different features to players, as well as some really nice prizes! What’s more, you’ll get to have both Pinocchio and Gepetto cheering you on as you play.
Despite the great originality shown by this game, there are some issues though, with the biggest being the fact that you won’t find a huge number of wins spinning in. You’ll also have to wait quite a while before accruing enough symbols to start one of the features – although when you do start them, you should be in for some nice prizes.
This slot is simple and smooth to play – just like Bitcoin slots should be. There are only 15 paylines, which contributes to the lack of winning spins, although you can choose how many to play. There is a Double Up feature, where you can risk your wins in the hope of winning more, however it should be avoided – unless you are feeling really lucky!
There are quite a few bonuses at Pinocchio. You’ll begin the game in Gepetto’s workshop, and while here the Gepetto symbol turns wild if it lands on the third reel. When this happens, it will make its way across the reels, hopefully leading to wins in the process. Collecting wagon symbols and books symbols will fill the meters at the top of the screen, and when one is full you’ll head to a new world.
Collecting enough book symbols will take you to a classroom, and while here you’ll receive eight free spins. During these, the books symbol is wild, and when it spins into view it will move down the reels, hopefully bringing more prizes. Collecting enough wagon symbols sees you on the stage, and you’ll also get eight free spins. The wagon is the wild symbol here, and when it spins in, it will remain in place for five spins.
While playing, you can also collect symbols with a small icon in the corner. Getting five of these will turn Pinocchio into a real boy, and getting five more will turn him back into a wooden boy. When you have a spin where the position of reel one, two or three prevented you from getting a five symbol combo, you’ll receive a free respin of the offending reels from a fairy.
As can be seen, Pinocchio is quite a complicated slot. Once you get the hang of it though, you should really enjoy playing it, although don’t expect too many wins until you activate one of the new worlds.
