4 Seasons is one of most visually appealing online pokies ever created. It has an Oriental theme which adds to the popularity. It is from the games supplier Betsoft and can be played at Australian online casinos like Casino Mate.
4 Seasons is based on the changing seasons and also the changing of the year according to the Chinese system. As the game loads, the beautiful natural scene in the background will depict one of the four seasons. After 90 spins on the online pokie the Seasonal Wheel will rotate and take the background scene to the next season. You will be entranced by the change from spring to summer to autumn to winter with almost photographic reality. This has no relevance to the gaming, but will keep you fixed to the online pokie.
The symbols awarding line payouts are the twelve animals from the Chinese Zodiac. These cute 3D creatures will win your heart in the win animations. The payout table is different. All symbols award the same payouts ranging from 10 times the line bet to 50 times the line bet. There are different multipliers for different symbols that will enhance the amounts shown on the payout table.
All the twelve Zodiac animals are displayed on the Seasonal Wheel. The animal on top at a given time is the Golden Animal that comes with a multiplier of 10x. The animals on either side are Silver Animals that have a payout multiplier of 5x. Then the three animals to the left and right are Bronze Animals with a payout multiplier of 2x. So the top payout with the Golden animal is 500 times the line bet. After every 30 spins the Seasonal Wheel rotates one step and changes the positions of the animals.
4 Seasons online pokie offers other payout multipliers as well. Symbols can appear in blocks. A block with two symbols doubles payouts, a block with three symbols triples payouts, a block with four symbols multiplies payouts five times and a block with five symbols multiplies payouts 10 times. The Golden Cat, which brings good fortune in Chinese folklore, is the wild symbol. It also awards the top line payout of 10,000 times the line bet for a combination of five symbols on an active payline. The Yin & Yang scatter symbol activates the free spins feature. Three symbols award 8 free spins, four symbols award 12 free spins and five symbols award 20 free spins.
