Peek a Boo
Peek a Book by Microgaming
Peek a Boo was released by Microgaming on the same day as Lucky Twins and while that Oriental themed game was far from being the most exciting reel based action that you could ever hope to find, Peek a Boo manages to go a long way towards filling in for it. The symbols in use on the main board could be considered to be even simpler than those found on Lucky Twins, but it is definitely a case of onwards and upwards when it comes to the gameplay – some of which is even unlike anything that we have encountered before.
Forty Lines and a Ghost Meter
The most obvious upgrade comes from the moment that players are looking to place their bets. Gone is the frankly pitiful choice of nine win lines afflicting its sister title, and they have been replaced here with forty lines, which are accompanied by an extended board of four rows. This opens up the possibility of far more frequent wins and the wild card is a great addition too. Represented by the Peek a Boo logo, it can not only fill in for other symbols but also land in stacks at all times and across each and every reel – even all five at once for some amazing returns.
One element of the game that certainly won’t have escaped anyone’s attention is the presence of a ghost meter on the right hand side of the screen. This is tied into the ghost hunter symbol, who takes on an important role whenever he appears on the third reel. A maximum of one ghost on ever other reel can be zapped and collected, before being placed into the meter. When that meter is full, free spins are triggered, and placing multiple ghosts in there at once can lead to an increased number of spins, up to a maximum of thirteen.
1,024 Ways to Win on Free Spins
The bonus round boasts something special too, as the forty win lines of the base game are immediately replaced with a new 1,024 ways to win configuration. That essentially means that any adjacent symbols can contribute to a win, making it even easier to rack up the returns. Help is on hand when players are looking to turn three of a kind into four and so on too in the shape of the Symbol Win feature. Land three of a kind and the remaining two reels will spin again without counting as a free spin, and the same applies to the fifth reel when four of a kind land in view. It’s almost as if the game is giving players as few excuses as possible not to make the most of the bonus game!
Peek a Boo on Phones and Tablets
Peek a Boo was released simultaneously online and on mobile and that’s particularly good news for players that like to enjoy their action on the move, as this game instantly lands as one of the most feature packed around. It definitely ranks in the upper echelons of prize winning potential for mobile play and so is definitely well worth checking out.
Overall, the quality of Peek a Boo would stand out in its own right, but the fact that it is making up for the disappointment of Lucky Twins makes us like it even more! It’s well worth getting acquainted with and you can do so instantly back up at the top of this page.
