About Babushkas

Russian nesting dolls are one of those things that a synonymous with Russian culture. This goes in line with things like vodka, big fur hats, and misery. The dolls are expertly crafted and have many layers. Internet casino game developer Thunderkick is taking these dolls into account with their Babushkas slot, which brings a great crafty look and feel to it along with some interesting features.

Babushkas is a 5 reel, 17 payline video slot set on top of a fabric set that looks really good like its an Afghan blanket or such. The game's symbols are completely made up of the nesting dolls, and include a green baby, blue girl, purple girl, pink mother, red red mother, orange grandmother, and yellow grandmother. The game also has an accordion playing bear as well as a charm bear and scare bear. A mystery wild egg also is available, which has a giant W on it.

Features in the Babushkas slot include wilds, upgradable symbols, free spins, and spreading symbols. These all combine to give the slot a theoretical return to player percentage (RTP) of 95.8%, which is about average from what we see from online slot developers.

The overall experience with Babushkas is solid, if not the best slot machine of all time. The game has a definite charm to it, and it is simple enough to pick up and play. The most interesting feature is what the game calls the "symbol upgrade". It is confusing but I think if I am interpreting things correctly, the game will automatically change the winning symbols on a winning line to the interpreting smallest Babushka symbol if that will join with more of the same symbols to make a win. This means you can chain together some enormous combos, and it is even possible to convert all the symbols on the reels to be the same Babushka doll. Generally speaking, this works out well for player, as you deal with the chaos.

There is a wild egg symbol on the middle reel that may open to reveal a Russian dancing bear if you are lucky. The bear awards various bonuses that can cause some of the symbols to upgrade, or even trigger 7 free spins. During the free spins round a wild egg is guaranteed to appear on the middle reel on every spin, and it is possible to re-trigger another 7 free spins.

I started playing Babushkas on my desktop, but I eventually wanted to test it out on my iPhone and iPad. Interestingly, the game performed equally well on both, and I didn't notice any drop in quality for these smaller screen versions. Thunderkick has done a fine job of developing games for maximum compatibility, and I had no issues whatsoever with navigating the game, even with my fat fingers.

If you're a fan of cute style video slots, then it's likely that you'll enjoy Babushka. The game is definitely geared toward the female demographic, but that's okay. When you mix in the different features with the symbol upgrade win system (as confusing as it is), Babushka is a game with many layers that you'll love uncovering.

Russian themed slot which is actually not in my taste. Just soundtrack is nice. I had big win but just once. Usually i give up to play it because winnings are to rare.

I think babushkas its very bad, Boring, the features are not attractive, quite confusing, and there are no good payments (hopefully no for another people), well ... Just the music can be a little entertaining ... For me it's bad..

I agree, this game is pretty darn boring. There's a bunch of Thunderkick games that are a lot better than this one.

I played several spins on this game, and I did not like it. The design of the slot machine is average, and the percentage of winnings is low.
