Serendipity Slot (Yggdrasil)

Serendipity Slot (Yggdrasil)In the past, we were made to believe that Lady Luck is only associated with the colour green. This notion also suggests that she lives in Ireland, but Yggdrasil is of a different view if their new slot titled Serendipity is anything o go by.

This new slot is a joint creation by two amazing developers which are Gluck Games and Yggdrasil, as part of the YGS Masters program.

Below is my review of Serendipity:

Game Set-Up

Serendipity offers a 5x3 reels design with just 10 paylines. Among its features are free spins with multipliers of up to 3xs, scatters, as well as wilds.

Betting and Prizes

I notice that the slot doesn’t offer very many active paylines, and the minimum bet amount of $0.05 is ideal. The highest that I could use to spin the real money rounds is $20.

It is a low volatility slot machine but with great potential, and on a good day, you can take home about 5,194x the stake ($100,000).

The RTP is not all that impressive though, as Yggdrasil has given Serendipity just 95.23% which is below the common 96%).

Serendipity Slot Features

One of the major features in this slot is the one that appears with an image of Lady Luck herself. It is what I got to use as the wild symbol, and I could also use it to substitute the regular symbols.

To trigger the free spins, I needed between 3 and 5 scatter symbols (have an Orb).  You can also win up to 200x the stake with the help of these same symbols. With an extra 2 scatters, I managed to retrigger the free spins.

I experienced the best of Serendipity during the free spins, and this is because I was rewarded with 15 free spins. While in this mode, all wins get a boost via the multiplier (2x to 5x multipliers are possible) that is picked from a Wheel of Fortune.

Theme & Design

Although it is a slot dedicated to Lady Luck as is clear from the Irish roots and luck-related icons that are present on its reels, the background image is a totally different idea.

You will notice a lot of pink in the valley inhabited by Lady Luck. Serendipity has 9 to A Royals as the low-value icons, while major ones include gold coin, lucky horseshoe, rabbit’s foot, four-leaf clover, and ladybug. The Orb represents the scatter, and while Lady Luck serves as the multiplier wild.

Conclusion

Serendipity is a well-thought idea, and the slot delivers some powerful features and great graphics. These features may not be very original, but they get the job done.  

I’m happy with the developers for combining low volatility with big payout potential, but the low RTP of 95.23% may not be very attractive to many real money gamers.
