Swintt celebrates a golden harvest in new Duolitos Garden slot

The casino game studio Swintt is getting back to its roots in the brand-new Premium release, Duolitos Garden – a natural wonder of a slot where players will be able to reap what they sow in a bonus-packed Free Spins feature that also boasts four fixed jackpots.
Played out to a backdrop of verdant fields and calm blue skies, Duolitos Garden is a nominally a 5×3 video slot with 50 fixed paylines and a farmyard theme. Unique icons to feature in the game include carrots, beans, bags of fertiliser and corns on the cob, with Swintt’s instantly-recognisable fox symbol also making a welcome return as a substitute wild that can expand to complete any winning paylines.
Where the game really blossoms, however, is in the addition of its special sunflower scatter symbol. Landing six or more of these important icons in a single spin will transport players to a new set of reels where a rewarding Free Spins feature will begin – and it’s here that the slot’s biggest payouts can be won.
The mechanic of the Free Spins feature will be familiar to all fans of SwinttPremium slots, with the sunflower symbols now transforming into suns that display cash values as an initial three spins are awarded. After each subsequent round the number of re-spins will reduce by one, but landing a further sunflower or one of the game’s other special icons will reset the count to 3 and further prolong the feature.
In Duolitos Garden, however, the Free Spins come with a twist. In addition to the sunflower symbols, there are also a number of additional power-ups that can award further prizes or otherwise enhance the feature. Initially the re-spins take place across three rows and five columns, but landing a frog icon will see an extra row come into play, with this extending the gameboard up to a maximum 6×5 layout.
On top of that, there’s also the forester icon – which will permanently increase maximum number of re-spins by one – and a further trio of symbols that can award instant cash prizes. These include the farmer, which will pay the value of all current pearls as a one-time bonus, the gardener, which will double the value of all current pearls, and the bee, which will add random winnings to up to five pearls.
Finally, while working through their Free Spins, players may also encounter sticky chest symbols. Whenever one of these icons lands within the active gameboard, it will remain locked in place and open after 10 spins have been played. When it does, one of the game’s four fixed jackpots will be awarded – from the 20x Minor Pot to the 500x Mega Pot – and multiple jackpots can also be collected.
If players are struggling to trigger the re-spins round – or they simply want to play for the game’s biggest prizes even faster – they’ll be pleased to know that an optional Buy Feature Games option is available, while all base game and bonus winnings can also be gambled in Swintt’s popular Risk game.
David Mann, Chief Executive Officer at Swintt, said: “While our SwinttPremium catalogue is known for sticking to the fundamental values of straightforward gameplay and easy-to-trigger bonus features, we don’t think these basics need be a barrier to innovation and providing an engaging user experience.”
“As such, our new Duolitos Garden slot includes one of the most ambitious and entertaining bonus rounds to feature in a Premium release so far. By taking our popular “sun” Free Spins mechanic and enhancing it with four jackpot prizes and a range of game-enhancing bonus symbols, we can ensure that players reap the full benefits of a fun and rewarding feature that can pay up to 3,000x their stake.”
