KGB Bears Introduction
Do you ever feel a hankering for some good old cold war nostalgia with your online gaming? Then buckle up, comrade, because KGB Bears is the game you have been looking for. With a slick Soviet-era aesthetic and a real sense of humour in the gameplay, KGB Bears will entertain and delight as much as it will pay out.
KGB Bears is made by The Games Company, a London-based online games production company with some very high-quality pokies on its books. It is released on the Odobo software platform, which is also a sign of great merit in the online gaming world. Obviously this game is available to play for Free - just like the hundreds of other free pokies we have at Online Pokies 4U.
The Games Company has thrown itself headfirst into its chosen theme in the development of KGB Bears, which really shows in the gameplay. The reels are superimposed over a silhouetted backdrop of Moscow, with the famous statue of Lenin saluting as you play.
Card values (9, 10, J, Q, K and A) are all illustrated with replica Soviet propaganda posters, while the high value symbols are the eponymous furry friends themselves: Tamara, Kovalyov, Lavrentiy and Vitalli. All the bears also come with a quirky animation if they are included in a winning combination.
There is also an invigorating Russian martial soundtrack as you play, which increases in intensity as you spin more; in addition, the information box at the bottom of the screen invites you to ‘Spin it, comrade!’ whenever you click the spin button.
KGB Bears is a five-reel game with three rows and up to 50 pay lines, which means there are plenty of opportunities to win big money from the bears. The KGB Bears crest stands in for the wild symbol in this game and can substitute for all other symbols except for the camera, which acts as a scatter symbol. Spin three or more cameras anywhere on the reels and you will trigger the KGB Bears Free Spins feature.
The betting range for KGB Bears starts at $0.50 and you can go up to $500. There is a $5,000 jackpot on offer in this game, which is pretty appealing given how fun and easy it is to play. The Auto Spin feature can be set for five, 10 or 25 spins and you can stop it at any time to adjust your bet. The game is also very successful at showing you clearly how much you have won and what your winning combinations are.
There is also an industrial-looking Free Spin and Multiplier metre on the left-hand side of the reels that randomly changes for each spin. This shows you the number of free spins and the multiplier value you could win if you were to get three or more camera symbols during that spin. You can get between eight and 25 free spins in this way, with between two x and 10 x as a multiplier.
If you can land three more camera symbols during your free spins round, you will win the same number of free spins again and the same multiplier value.
