Sometimes you just don’t want to get home and have to start preparing a meal. Is it me or does the food taste a bit better if hours haven’t been spent in the kitchen making it? Well where do you go for a meal? Is it the local Chinese restaurant, a swanky French bistro or the chippie down the road? Then again you could pop into Harveys where a delicious meal could be yours. So could some big wins in this great little slot game from the hugely successful Microgaming.
‘Harveys’ is a five-reel game with three rows and has a total of 25 paylines. It’s up to you to decide just how many of those lines you want to play as well as the coin size and the number of coins placed on each line. The minimum cost of playing the game is just a penny and the maximum is £50. Whatever level you choose to play at, simply make sure it’s one that you can afford to lose so it doesn’t spoil your enjoyment of the game.
The symbols in this game are a mixture of those that are theme-related and those that aren’t. Theme-related symbols are the gorgeous mouth-watering dishes such as les escargots, shellfish, a bowl of soup and a dessert that will definitely have you putting weight on.
The wild symbol is the handsome waiter and he can substitute for other symbols to earn you some winning combinations. It doesn’t substitute for the red matchbooks because that’s the scatter here or the champagne bottle. That bottle only appears on the second and fourth reels and plays an important part in triggering free spins. Padding out the reels are the ten to Ace playing cards.
Playing the game is straightforward with all the major control buttons placed below the reels. It’s not a complicated game but still have a good look through the paytable to get used to all the rules and have some free games too before putting your real cash on the line. There’s a regular and expert mode in this game. The expert mode basically allows you to set an autoplay. It’s either five or ten or choose a more precise amount.
For a change it’s not the scatter symbol that gets you into the free spins round. That’s the job of the champagne bottle and if it crops up on either the second or fourth reels then it’s free spins time. You receive a random number of free spins and there’s a multiplier that could be as high as 25x. It’s also possible to re-trigger the free spins which is always handy.
There’s also a gamble feature in this game which is ok but one to be wary of. It comes up after a win in the base game and as is often the case it’s of the guess the card variety. Guess the colour of the next card to double your win, guess the suit and quadruple it. All good and well and you can play up to five times in a row but it’s so easy to get carried away and lose your win.
A pretty straightforward game that can certainly produce some tasty wins in the bonus round. Be careful with that gamble feature though, you’re here to win money not gamble it away.
