We’ve all laid awake at night wondering what certain celebrities would look like and be called if they were actually animals. We all have. Well, casino software PlayPearls has taken that rather peculiar conundrum and created a whole entire video slot game around it.
Call it strange or way out there, we call it classic PlayPearls, taking something completely random and out of the blue and turning it into a rather interesting video slot title. Along the way you’ll rub shoulders with some incredibly well known celebrities. Or rather, animal celebrities. You’ll get to growl and bleet with stars such as Keanu Wolves, Cristallion Rolando, Ariana Grandeer and many more!
Join us as we sit down with these multi-talented animals and figure out what made them join the Celebrity Zoo in the first place. We’ll let you know about everything that there is to know about the zoo so that when you visit you’ll know exactly what to look out for.
Theme & Symbols
The theme of this title is a rather interesting one. It’s primarily centred around animals with celebrity personas. As we mentioned in the beginning, Keanu Wolves and Ariana Grandeer are among some of the animals that you’ll meet.
The game starts up with you selecting a host from the eight different animal celebs. Once you’ve selected your host you’ll be taken to the main game. The background is set up like a classic talk show, there’s a big yellow couch for the guests to relax on, there are big lights to set the stage perfectly and there is a panel behind the couch that gives the set personality.
The grid is a real who’s who of the animal celebrity world. The symbols are all made up of the animal superstars that we met in the beginning of the game. The grid is held together by the stands for the lights, illuminating the stars.
Music and animations are good, the backtrack to this game is funky and jazzy, it doesn’t take itself seriously at all which is a good thing given the theme. There are persistent animations on your host, making you feel like they’re alive. Winning combos also bring symbols to life which is always a great touch.
Overall, developer PlayPearls has done a pretty good job bringing their wacky vision to life. It’s fun and it’s light-hearted, a definite must try at least once.
We already mentioned previously that the majority of the symbols in this game consist of animal celebrities, let’s take you through all of them. Throughout your time with the game you’ll see Cristallion Rolando, Ariana Grandeer, Keanu Wolves, Maris Pilton, Justin Beaver, Savanna, The Stone and Lionce all appear on your reels.
The Wild symbol in this game is represented by your host. The Wild will substitute for any other common icon in the game except for the Scatter and Bonus symbols.
The Scatter symbol will trigger bonus spins should enough of them land during a single spin.
The Camera Bonus and the Microphone Bonus will both trigger unique minigames where you can win instant prizes and bonuses should enough land during a single spin.
