Shopping Spree is, well, it’s a slot for the ladies. This slot takes players on a spree about town, spending their money to bag the best bargains on the reels. The theme actually ties in pretty well to the mechanics of a slot game, although this slot’s mechanics aren’t really anything beyond the standard payouts and features seen in hundreds of slots every day.
It was developed by Eyecon, an Australian slot provider who have produced some much-loved games including Fluffy Favourites and Shaman’s Dream.
Open up Shopping Spree and you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re playing a slot from 1995. The graphics look a little basic and juvenile these days, despite the slot dating back only to 2017. The reels are set against a bright purple backdrop, where a glamorous cartoon woman struts down the high street with bags of cash to spend on her spree.
Shopping Spree is a classic slot with 25 paylines in play, so players win by lining up matching symbols across any of these 25 paylines. The slot’s Wild symbol is the shopper, and not only does she substitute for any other symbol on the reels, but she also doubles every win she’s in. Other symbols on the reels include high heels, necklaces, rings, and reduction tags, which can land players up to 950x the bet for five high heel symbols on a line.
If players can land three Scattered money bags symbols anywhere on the reels, they’ll trigger 15 free games. This is a pretty standard feature as far as modern slots are concerned, although what’s nice is that there’s a 3x multiplier bonus attached to all wins which land during Free Spins. It’s a nice little bonus round, but it’s a pretty basic feature all in all.
Yes, despite looking like it’s at least 20 years old, Shopping Spree is available to play on mobile devices, so if you’re looking for something to keep you entertained while you’re on the bus into town about to start a shopping spree of your own, this slot might just fit.
Shopping Spree offers an average RTP of 92.9%. If you know your RTPs, you’ll know this is well on the low side. Unless you’re in love with this slot, it’s best avoided if you’re keen to make a few bucks back while you play. It, however, is a medium variance slot, which should please those players who like a fine balance between win frequency and payout size.
Shopping Spree is a slot with an appealing theme, if you like that kind of thing – it’s not been done many times before, and in many ways, it fits so well as a slot game. However, Eyecon really could have done a better job here. The slot’s graphics are poor, and no effort has been made to include interesting bonus features for players. This combined with a poor RTP and it’s difficult to recommend this slot to anyone, even the biggest shopaholics.
