Van Gogh Introduction
Paint brushes at the ready… it's time to play Van Gogh, the free pokies classic from games developer High 5 that's all about the arty redhead. The Look Van Gogh is a game that remembers one of the world's most famous painters, and it does so with references to his best-known paintings. In the background of the reels, Starry Night is visible - the blue and yellow swirls of stars on sky lend the game a mysterious air.
For the symbols, we are presented with the standard selection of playing card symbols and several paintings: Starry Night, a self-portrait and a vase of irises. There are also three labelled symbols: Wild Card, Bonus, and Van Gogh.
Van Gogh has a very simple games structure that all pokie players will recognise. It has five reels, three rows and up to 20 pay lines. As always, the aim of the game is to spin the reels and match three or more symbols consecutively from left to right. By matching three or more symbols, you can win credits or coins and earn some cash! The game includes a wild card that can substitute all other symbols, upping your chances of winning.
There are two bonus features to Van Gogh. First, if you hit the jackpot and match three or more symbols, you will win coins, but the matching symbols will then disappear, allowing other symbols to drop in to fill their spaces. This almost acts like a free spin, allowing you another chance to match symbols.
The reels will continue to tumble until you stop matching symbols. The second feature is triggered when you match three or more Bonus symbols on reels one, two and three. Doing this will award you with six free spins, which is great in itself, but during your six free spins, you'll have another chance to win even more free spins.
Reveal three bonus symbols to win between two and four free spins; get four bonus symbols to get between four and 10 spins; and five bonuses will net you a wonderful six to 15 spins.
