Can you resist temptation? There’s plenty of it on offer in Sweet Sins, a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot from Novomatic. Based on the tale of Adam and Eve, it comes with a feature round where you get free spins complete with a special expanding symbol are on offer. Stakes start at 50p per spin.
Visually, Sweet Sins is pretty good – the lush vegetation of the Garden of Eden forms the backdrop to the reels. You’ll see the usual lower value A to 9 values spinning around the reels as well as a tropical flower and an exotic bird. They’re joined by cartoon Adam and Eves, who thankfully, keep their modesty intact. Adam is the game’s top paying standard symbol, awarding 2, 20 or 200 times your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
The snake is the game’s wild – it can land anywhere on the reels and substitutes for all other symbols. It also serves as the scatter. An award of 2, 20 or 200 times your stake is in offer when you land 3, 4 or 5 snakes on the same spin. You’ll also trigger the Free Games feature.
10 free spins are on offer here. Boosting your winning chances is the presence of a special chosen symbol – this is selected at random before the bonus games begin. When this special symbol lands, it will expand and fill the whole of the reel. Once again, the snake serves a dual purpose, acting as both a wild and scatter. Re-triggers are possible here too.
Novomatic has upped its game as far as design is concerned in recent times and Sweet Sins is a prime example. The visuals here are rather nicely done. We’re not quite in ELK Studios or Thunderkick country yet but it’s certainly a move in the right direction.
The gameplay is just what we’ve come to expect from Novomatic. All the best thrills come via the bonus round. Land a high value symbol as the special expander and some very decent results are possible. Stories don’t come much older than that of Adam and Eve. This volatile slot version brings it bang up to date and it is certainly a tempter. I also recommend you try Kingdom of Legend which is Novomatic’s best release in my opinion.
