Tales or tails? Hmm, it seems spring is in the air with this new game, but the tails part of the title is also relevant. Which animal does the tail belong to? The title doesn’t tell us in Spring Tails, but the loading screen does, as a cute rat appears looking friendly and helpful. He is helpful to us when we play this slot game too, but we’ll let you know more about that further on in our review.

What is the theme in action in Spring Tails slots?
The tail belongs to a rat, and that rat is the active zodiac sign for 2020. We are referring to the Chinese zodiac, of course. We regularly spot games based around this theme, and this one is a good addition for 2020.
Are you going to like the design?
Betsoft is famous for 3D slot games, but this one doesn’t drop into that category, sadly. It would have looked even better if it did. However, the slot game still looks appealing, with plenty of color and detail involved both on and off the reels. Those reels are big, too, offering an easy view of your progress regardless of the screen size you’re viewing it on.
Spring Tails: Reels, features, and more
This is a 5 x 3 slot game that takes up most of the screen. Don’t expect to spot any progressive jackpot amounts on that screen though, as the game doesn’t include them.
It does have a wild and a scatter though. The wild is the rat, named as a Lucky Rat, and there is a good reason for that. Whenever it appears, it will show you a multiplier. This will be 3x, 4x, or 5x, applied at random. If the wild appears in a winning line, you’ll get that multiplier to boost your prize. The multipliers work together too, so the more that appear in a winning line, the better the outcome. Betsoft has revealed the best multiplier is a huge 60x.
A golden key is used as the scatter symbol. Find one or more to receive a scatter prize. Three or more is better still, as we’ll shortly find out.
Paylines to place your bets on
There are only five, and they’re not numbered at the sides of the reels, so all five need to be played with each spin.
Bets to choose from in Spring Tails slots
Just select a wager using the arrows underneath the reels. The smallest total bet per spin is five cents, but there are other options that max out to $5 per spin.
The paytable is spread over several pages
You’ll see all the available icons in there, along with information on how the wild multipliers and scatter symbols work. Another tab on that screen tells you more about the rules.
This is a short section, as there are none in this game.
Free spins are possible to trigger though
Yes, and 12 would be given to you if you found three golden keys over reels two through four (the only reels the scatters appear on). Before you play those games, the cheapest icons (the letters and numbers) disappear. This increases your chances of picking up some better prizes. You’ll also stand a chance of receiving help from those wild Lucky Rats and their multipliers.
RTP details for the slot game
Expect a return to player percentage amounting to 95.84% here.
Rating this slot
There are some decent elements in action here, although Spring Tails does not break the mold or create anything new. That said, it still earns itself a 7/10 rating from us.
With no jackpots, what could winners hope for?
Details for the game reveal that 300,364.2x your bet would be the ultimate prize here. Few people will net that sort of return on a wager, but there is some potential for good prizes to be had with the Lucky Rat and those free games.
