Gift Shop from Play'n GO: Slot Review - a shop where you may leave with more money than when you arrived

Gift Shop is rather a girly slot game, developed by Play'n GO. The game may not offer the best design but its jackpot bonus feature is excellent. Considering all this, it's really worth giving the game a spin.

Unlike many other slot games currently on the market, this slot game merely has 3 reels and a single payline. The design is also different in that the left side of the screen occupies the reels, while the right side is occupied by the paytable.

Special Features

These design choices may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but with a mere three diamond ring symbols activating the progressive jackpot, your chances of winning high in this slot game are relatively good. This bonus feature is complemented with high-paying symbols. To name but a few, the teddy bear comes in at 40 to 120 coins, the red rose at 15 to 45, and other combinations come in at a good rate too. Beware, though, the downside of the relatively good progressive jackpot is that you can only ever win it if you are spinning the reel at its max. If a player uses two coins instead, the winning combination pays 1600 coins. One coin, on the other hand, half the winnings again to 800 coins.

Theme and Graphics

It’s bright, it’s pink, and it’s a Gift Shop. This is what the developers at Play'n GO thought when they developed the slot game Gift Shop. Stars glisten in the pink background, while symbols, from teddy bears, boxes of chocolate to diamonds, provide a good contrast to the otherwise garish design.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

Before you get playing, it’s important to remember checking where the jackpot current stands in Gift Shop. This is vital given that it will inform if you should bet the maximum, or if playing with one or two coins may be wiser. The maximum is three coins and there is only one payline available. The coin value starts at €0.25 with the maximum being €0.75. To play tactically smart, it is not advisable to play with three coins, if the jackpot is relatively low.

Our Verdict on Gift Shop

Gift Shop's jackpot sure beats its design. While the design may not bother all players, it is rather loud and subject to taste. However, as a true gamer, design only comes secondary. Play'n GO has certainly managed to create a solid slot game. The game's payout can potentially reach €400 in one spin. This does not consider the jackpot, which reaches much higher sums on occasion.
