If you ask an online casino player who the first name is that comes to mind if you're talking about top-tier graphics, then a lot of them will tell you BetSoft. Their 4 Seasons slot is a good example of why this is the case. They have built a game around the Chinese zodiac that takes a completely different visual approach than most other Asian-themed games. Instead of keeping things super serious and "exotic," they've opted to make all 12 zodiac symbols into cute, baby animals. Add some atypical but fitting features into the game, and you have a hit.
Layout of the Game
BetSoft really likes to use the five-reel, three-row format with 30 paylines a lot more than probably any other software provider out there today, and that's exactly the layout they've used with this game. They have coins ranging from $0.02 to $1.00 apiece, so you can play for just $0.60 per spin at a minimum. You also have the option to play for as many as five coins per payline, and this gives you more flexibility on bet sizing so that you can narrow down closer to the exact bet size you'd prefer to have per spin.
In the bottom-left corner of the game, you'll see a wheel that rotates after every 30 spins that has the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac on it. When the wheel turns, the season of the scene in the background will change accordingly, and that's where the name 4 Seasons comes from in the game. What you'll have happen is that the symbol at the top of the wheel will be hit with a 10x multiplier, and the two symbols to the left and right each will be given a 5x multiplier. Six more are given a 2x multiplier, and the three centered around the bottom of the reel are given a normal 1x multiplier.
Normally, all 12 of the zodiac symbols pay out 50x for five of a kind, 20x for four and 10x for three. These are some pretty significant wins on their own considering that all of the symbols pay out in this way, but they're also hit with the rotating multipliers listed in the above to give you even better payouts.
Golden Cat Wild Symbol
A very important symbol in this game is the golden cat wild. This wild shows up on all five reels, but it doesn't appear very often because it's so ridiculously valuable. If you line up five of these on an activated payline, then you'll get an enormous 10,000x win, which is the largest win in the game. This symbol substitutes for all regular zodiac symbols in the game.
One way to get extra multipliers on top of the zodiac wheel multipliers is to get reels completely full of a symbol. The symbols often show up stacked on all reels, and getting a winning combination that includes a completely solid reel of one symbol will give you a multiplier based on how many solid reels like this there are. Two reels earns 2x, three reels earns 3x, four reals earns 5x and five reels gives you a whooping 10x on all of your payouts.
These multipliers multiply by the zodiac multipliers instead of adding to them. For example, if you get a 5x multiplier from the zodiac and a 3x multiplier from the block win combinations, then your total multipliers is 15x instead of 8x.
Yin-Yang Free Spins Bonus Feature
You can get a set of free spins by lining up at least three of the yin-yang symbol anywhere on the reels. It starts with three of them getting you eight free spins, and continues to four of them getting you 12 free turns. A total of five of them will get you a whooping 20 free spins, and you can continue to re-trigger these free spins indefinitely if you line up the yin-yang symbols appropriately.
4 Seasons by BetSoft is a good example of how they can take a theme, in this case the Chinese Zodiac, that has been done over and over again in this industry and turn it into something that's completely different than what any of the competition has managed to do with the same theme. They do this by using very thoughtful and out-of-the-box thinking, like what they did to turn all of the 12 zodiac symbols into cute, cuddly animals.
The end result is a game that players will absolutely love that offers excellent graphics without relying on them to avoid giving players strong gameplay values. This is characteristic of BetSoft, and it's the reasons why they have continued to be one of the most dominant online casino software developers in the industry for years.
