Have you ever bitten into a sweet treat that had too much frosting or sugar on it? That is kind of what Gingerbread Lane is to me. The game is bright, vibrant, and almost too sugary, making it a game that brings both holiday cheer and symbols that will give you cavities.
Crafted by Genesis Gaming, Gingerbread Lane is a 5 reel video slot that features 25 paylines, and also contains bonus features such as Free Spins, which can help you boost your bankroll, but it is a bit of a disappointment to see that the game isn’t deeper in this regard.
In terms of graphics and presentation, Gingerbread Lane is a game that looks decent but lacks the overall crispness and pop that one can see from some of the other Genesis slots in our free games section. Reel symbols consist of some scene setting pieces with the gingerbread man alongside some Christmas trees, or him out on the town as well as many card symbols, which sadly made up the vast majority of the symbols on the reels.
Sound keeps pace with the graphics in delivering an experience that is very sweet and Christmassy, with a horn playing and making things seem very cheery. Hearing this outside of the Christmas season would be very grating on me, but seeing as how it is early December, I am enjoying it as I test this game to write up a summary for it.
Those looking to play a holiday themed slot and want to get away from a game featuring Santa Claus or Rudolph will likely enjoy the change of pace that Gingerbread Lane brings to players. While that is nice, the graphics can be a little overwhelming, as they are very bright, and sound can grate on you if you are not entirely in the Christmas mood.
