Today’s weather is an online slot developed by Genesis Gaming, a well-known name in the business.
This 25-payline 5-reel slot has an interesting theme that everyone can relate to if the name of the game didn’t already give it out, the theme is centred around the weather.
Visually it’s made to look like a TV news forecast, luckily for the player, it’s much more exciting than that. The background is set against a sunny green field that changes in the bonus round of the game.
The symbols range from the standard card symbols that will be on the lower paying spectrum while the higher paying ones are more thematically aligned with the game.
These higher paying symbols include:
- Snowing Cloud
- Rain Cloud
The Sun is the highest paying of the standard symbols, and of course, the game features a Wild symbol presented by an icon of the world globe with the words “Wild” written over it, and it substitutes all other standard symbols in the game.
The wild can also form the winning combination on their own if you’re lucky to land five of them in a line you’re looking at a gigantic payout.
As most people know it’s hard to predict the weather, and this title can be just as unpredictable with its bonus round that comes in four different variations.
You activate the bonus by landing 3 or more scatter symbols that are presented in the game by a red “Weather Forecast“ symbol.
This triggers an animation that changes your screen and lets you choose one day from Monday to Sunday that will reveal the forecast for that day, or in this case a special bonus feature.
This can be one of the four different bonus rounds that are represented by different weather forecasts, and they’re as follows:
- Windy Forecast – You’ll be awarded five free spins with a stacking wild mechanic. If you land a wild anywhere on the reels, a tornado will fly by turning the whole reel into a stack of wilds, giving you good chances for those higher wins. You can also win more free spins during this bonus.
- Snowy Forecast – The player gets 8 free spins and a Sticky Wild, meaning that any time you land a wild, it will stick to that reel for the remaining free spins. If you’re lucky enough to get a couple of wilds during the first few spins, you can manage to form a huge number of winning paylines.
- Rainy forecast – Player is awarded 5 free spins and a random number of wilds ranging from one to fifteen.
- Sunny forecast – The most straightforward bonus in the game, it will award you between 10-25 free spins with a multiplier ranging from 2x – 10x.
Today’s Weather relies heavily on its interesting bonus rounds and landing a huge number of Wilds which the game will throw at you a lot.
This means that you’ll slowly but surely see some winnings coming your way, and if you don’t trust the forecast you can always try playing it for free first, so give it a shot, maybe the sun will shine on you when you do!
