How often do you head into a café, perhaps to catch up with friends or just to watch the world go by? You’ll get that feeling in Le Kaffee Bar too, thanks to the great look and feel of this appealing slot game. There aren’t too many based on this theme, so let’s take a seat and see what this café can offer us.
Check out the chalk board you see when the game begins. This reveals a few hints about what is to come, but you can bet there is far more than that to look forward to. Suffice to say we love Le Kaffee Bar, even though it’s not one of their better-known slots.
This is one of hundreds of available slots from Microgaming, arguably the biggest name in online slots today. You can check out their other titles too, including Alaskan Fishing, Big Break, CashOccino, Halloweenies, and Secret Santa among others.
Yes, except you get a demo credit balance to work with. It cannot be withdrawn, so even if a big prize is found, it’s just for entertainment. It does give you a chance to see how the game works though.
The theme in Le Kaffee Bar is obvious from the title, but you need to see the game itself to appreciate how good it is. You are in a café with all the delights you might expect to see there. These have been integrated into the game in some nice ways too.
The first thing we love about this game is that the reels appear on a chalk board. While there are lower-valued icons shown as A, Q, and K, you’ll see they are written in chalk. It’s a nice touch.
The background is hazy but we can see a bicycle, some lights, a few chairs and tables, and other aspects of the café mentioned in the title. It’s unusual yet appropriate for the game theme.
Five reels are obvious on that chalk board when the game gets underway. We don’t see any details of a progressive jackpot, so that’s one thing the game doesn’t offer.
The game’s wild icon is labeled as such, appearing against a background of coffee beans. The scatter is a cup of fresh coffee drawn in chalk, labeled underneath for clarity.
There are three characters paying out some of the bigger prizes. These are customers at the coffee bar, we guess. They can all appear in triple-stack formation over the middle three reels of the game, increasing the odds that you might get a prize from finding them there.
Instead, we get an All Ways Pays game with 243 potential ways to get prizes while playing.
Select the coin stack to the side of the spin button. You can then select your chosen bet. The minimum amount to work with is 30 cents, but you can go up to $30.
The paytable tells you everything you should know about the game before you begin. See the collection of nine white dots to the side of the stack of coins we just mentioned? Select that and you can either select the paytable or exit the game. Go for the paytable to read more.
Yes, there is a feature called Wild Spin Again. Whenever you find three identical symbols either vertically or horizontally on the reels, you receive a free spin. Before the spin occurs, the middle symbol of the three transforms into a sticky wild. It remains where it is for the free spin. Should another three-icon combo appear, another free game is granted.
The wild doesn’t appear anywhere other than in this feature, which is a shame. It won’t appear if you get four or five icons horizontally or vertically on the screen either. That said, we guess you’d be celebrating a bigger win if that happened.
This is an interesting trigger. The scatter is responsible for triggering them, as per usual. However, you do not need to find three or more in one spin. Instead, the Scatter Collection Feature means each scatter that appears is collected. You can then decide how many to collect before playing the free spins you have earned.
Here’s how it works:
If you get to 10 and you want to carry on, you can do. Otherwise, claim those spins and then return to the base game.
The game offers an RTP value of 96.51%.
There are some great features in this one – enough versatility to make it feel more unusual than many standard slots. We’d prefer the wild to turn up more often, but it did appear several times during our session. We like the fact you get more control over when to trigger the free games too. As such, we’re rating this as an 8 out of 10 slot game.
The paytable tells us the potential for winning prizes. We like the stacked characters on the middle reels, as this can increase the odds of getting prizes with their help.
The paytable tells us we can get up to 85,000 credits from the game, so that is something to shoot for. As you might guess, the best prizes come from the café customers.
Grab your own coffee and load the demo to see if you like the variety packed into this game. It’s a nice one to look at too.
There are lots of those around, and you need only open an account with your selected one to get what you want.
All mobile platforms and casinos should provide Le Kaffee Bar for you to try if you want to enjoy some mobile gaming. Android and iOS platforms provide a chance to appreciate the game on smaller screens.
