Pine of Plinko 2 will be released on 07.12.2023, but we’ve already got slot details for you, and you can even play its demo version.
Pine of Plinko 2 is there to surprise players, especially those who aren’t familiar with the original. The slot takes you to what the studio calls ‘treetop wonderland’ where a wide range of gamblers will have a thrilling experience.
The first time you see one of Plinko titles, it’s a unique environment and fantastic visuals that draw attention. But once you enter the bonus round, that’s when you realize how special the game is. Fortunately for players, Print Studios added the feature buy option in the sequel so that you can jump right into testing it.
However, if anticipation is half the fun for you, then the good news is that free spins get triggered ‘exceedingly often’. At least, that’s what the developer says. Bonus frequency is 1 in 117 but you can boost the figure to 1 in 52 when you activate the Scatter Boost.
Pine of Plinko 2 is the sequel to the original Pine of Plinko, which is connected to Relax Gaming’s Dream Drop. This time there are no progressive jackpots. That’s why RTP is better, and the max win is doubled to 20,000x.
Print Studios did a great job focusing players’ attention on the bonus game simply stripping the base game down to bare basics. There will be just a bunch of regular symbols and 10 paylines and not a single feature. Scatters are the only extra thing that made it to the main game.
Scatters trigger the bonus game. At least three of them are required, and they each show a random number of initial drops awarded. A drop in this case is a simultaneous release of a certain number of balls. These balls then travel down the board bouncing from pin to pin until it falls into one of the buckets that award prizes between 0.1 and 1,000. Two things make this game round truly exciting:
- Bumpers. Three bumpers are always there in the middle of the board, and they play a key role in boosting the fun level. When these bumpers are hit a certain number of times, players get to the next stage where they get double the number of balls per drop.
- Bumper Buckets. These are located at the bottom of the screen replacing regular prize buckets. They appear randomly at the start of any stage. What they do is send balls flying back to the top to possibly hit the bumpers again.
Every new level begins with 10 drops, but with each upgrade there will be twice more balls in each drop. So, you start with just a single ball dropped at a time, and after an upgrade there will be two balls released at a time. The number doubles until it reaches 256.
Bumper Buckets aren’t available in the original, and Golden Ball is another thing that is unique to Pine of Plinko 2. And it can award up to 10,000x for a single ball. The feature triggers when a ball falls into one of two special hatches.
One of the great things about this bonus game is that it gives players control over the pace. They can release one batch of balls and wait for them to reach the bottom or release more of them at the same time to have dozens of balls bouncing around.
How to Enter Free Drops
Three scatters in the base mode trigger a bonus game. But players are also offered two paid options. One is to enter the round straight away by paying 92x bet, and another one is to pay double the base bet per spin to have more scatters and therefore higher chances of triggering the bonus randomly.
Before you enter free spins, you’ll have a chance to reroll the bonus drop number. That means if you pay a specified price, you can have the number of initial drops for a single scatter rerolled in hope of getting more of them. But you can as well end up paying for a less lucrative deal.
Pine of Plinko 2 focuses on a thrilling pachinko style bonus game. The base mode offers bare basics just to leave more for the free drops. The studio brought back its original hit and upgraded it using a couple of boosters. The result is amazing as the slot appeals to players who are new to this Plinko story as well as fans of the original.
