About Babushkas

Thunderkick’s Babushkas slot, features the rather unusual setup of 5 reels and just 17 paylines. The good news is that you will kind of get a bit of a deal when it comes to the paylines and wagers on this Russian doll themed game. In fact, you will only end up paying for 10 paylines, so the other 7 are gratis. No complaints here then. The slot can actually cost you up to £100 per spin if you wish to push the boat out, with the non-progressive jackpot in this Matryoshka themed slot being worth around the 1,000-coin mark.

Special features

The wild symbol in the Babushkas slot is the egg icon. When the egg symbol appears on the reels, players will see that it can replace all standard paying symbols in this slot. It will do much more than that, though. When the egg cracks, it will reveal 1 of 3 awesome special features.

The first of these is known as the Scar Bear feature, and it allows you to upgrade the lowest paying symbols on the reels to ones which are worth more up to 3 times. The second feature is the Charm Bear, and this bonus upgrades symbols just once. The final feature is the Dance Bear, and it can reward you with a total of 7 free spins.

Bonus features

During this slot’s free spins bonus, a new egg wild icon can appear on the third reel during each and every spin, which can seriously bolster your chances of landing massive wins. Players can also win as many as 15 free spins in this bonus, as well as boost their wins by just short of 400x their total bet, which is impressive to say the least.


Thunderkick are very much a hit or miss kind of company. Some of their slots really do excel, whilst others flop. Babushkas excels – it is able to offer quality features, give you a special deal on paylines, and still remain competitive. There are a few Matryoshka themed slots out there, but this is arguably one of the best.
