Van Gogh - the cultured free online slot
The post-impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh is considered not just one of the master painters of the 19th century, but one of the most talented artists in history, and of course his work has been extremely popular for a long time. It is all a far cry from Van Gogh’s sadly short life in The Netherlands, where he is said to have been a near recluse, the subject of much gossip concerning his damaged ear, and prone to erratic behaviour. Nevertheless, his work lives on, and some of his best pieces form an integral part of the free online slots game called, simply, Van Gogh.
About the game
The default settings on this slot with tumbling reels are 20 fixed paylines and a 0.01 credit, which is easily changed from the control panel. Players have a 1000 coins credit to start with, and as the wins are generously frequent, this is more than enough to play with. There’s a surprising amount of action and excitement for a game which looks at first glance a little bit sedate. For example, after each win, the symbols involved explode into a sparkling firework, and the reels they were sitting in drop off the screen to be replaced by more symbols, and possibly more wins. In fact, things keep on spinning, dropping and being replaced until there are no more wins possible.
Amazing masterpieces on the reels
Three of Van Gogh’s most famous pieces appear amongst the lovely symbols featured in this slot. These are The Starry Night, a self portrait, and Blue Irises in Vase. Other icons you will see are the wild, Van Gogh’s name, the bonus and the standard picture card initials.
Payouts, bonuses and other extras
Most slots have quite big differences between payouts for matching 5 symbols compared to 4, and Van Gogh is no different. If you get lucky and spin 5 of Van Gogh’s self portrait, the reward is 1000 credits, while 5 of The Starry Night canvas nets 500. The biggest reward, however, is the Van Gogh name symbol, which pays 5000 for five icons in one spin. The free spins bonus is a lot of fun, so watch reels 1-3, which is where you need 3 bonus symbols to appear in one spin. This triggers six free spins, which all become scatters and can retrigger extra free spins. It is technically possible to play a few hundred games without touching your stake money!
These days, lots of people have smartphones and tablets that they use as much as a regular laptop or desktop computer, so it’s no surprise that game designer High 5 has also created a fully optimised mobile version of Van Gogh. There’s never been more choice about where, when and how players can enjoy this free slots game. Playing Van Gogh is a really convenient way to combine having fun with an online slots game with getting the chance to appreciate the world of art and culture.
