It seems that a favourite pastime of much of the world is checking the day's weather forecast and complaining when the weather doesn't match up with what the meteorologist predicted. Genesis Gaming has gone out and latched on to this concept and created the video slot Today's Weather, which is a theme I don't think I have ever seen in a video slot before. A hearty high five to Genesis Gaming for coming up with something original!
Today's Weather is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot that obviously features the weather as a theme. The game uses traditional symbols used in meteorology to predict the weather, as well as poker symbols, and a few other assorted images. The game's background scenery is beautifully done, with the game advancing through time 20 minutes at a spin, and players can watch the sun rise and set as the day progresses.
Feature wise, the game contains Wild Symbols, Scatter Symbols, and four different weather bonus games that are a bit different in the way they pan out. The four weather features in the game are:
- Rain: awards 5 free spins with between 1 and 15 Wilds randomly placed in the reels.
- Sun: awards punters with 10, 15, or 20 Free Spins with win multipliers of 2, 3, 5, or 10x.
- Snow: awards 8 Free Spins with Sticky Wilds that remain for each subsequent spin.
- Wind: awards 5 Free Spins, which has stacked wilds that can be nudged to fill an entire reel.
If you are looking to play a game that is different from anything you have ever seen before, then I would definitely recommend that you check out Today's Weather. The slot looks great, and has a very deep feature set that will keep you entertained for a long period of time. There's no telling whether the game will be more accurate than your local weatherperson, though.
