Lama Glama refers to the llama, a camel-related mammal, native to South America. Llamas were integral to life in the villages that flourished in the steep mountains and the green, sunny Inca countryside. Thus it came to pass that a mischievous llama named Chummo, decided to hide the statue of the village temple’s deity at the time of the great harvest festival. He was the pet of the village chief’s daughter, and only she can find the idol with the help of the native flute.
Your job is to help the little girl find the village idol in time for the harvest festival in this 5-reel slot game from Spinmatic Entertainment. Your rewards for thwarting the naughty design of Chummo come through 15 paylines. You can select your bet level and the number of coins you want to play with. The story begins with Chummo frolicking in the South American jungle with a playful glint in his eye against the backdrop of the temple’s arch. The quaint graphics complement the rural narrative.
On the reels you will find the chief’s daughter, the chief, the village priest, the temple arch, and the native flute, apart from the gate-crashing card royals in Inca garb. The impish Chummo fittingly is the game’s wild symbol that can replace all symbols to help form winning combinations. A refreshing aspect of Lama Glama is that there is no scatter in the game. Free spins are triggered with all win combos, and with multipliers to boot, according to the value of the symbols.
The betting window for Lama Glama starts at 0.01 and ends at 4.00 per payline. 15 paylines widens the range from 0.15 to 60.00. This is a low volatility game, which means that you can expect regular payouts, but the maximum winnings will be modest. The card symbols 10 to A are the low paying symbols, while the premium symbols are represented by the human characters and the cultural icons.
Three to five tens pay 3 to 50 times your bet amount, while jacks award 5, 15, and 60 multipliers for 3, 4, and 5 of a kind appearances. The corresponding figures for the queen and king are 5x, 20x, 75x, and 10x, 25x, and 100x respectively. Aces pay out 15 to 150 times your bet for landing on 3 to 5 reels. The least paying premium icon is the flute, which soothingly airs out 15 to 200 times your bet for 3 to 5 of a kind appearances.
Next in the pecking order is the stone arch. It pays out 20, 100, and 500 times your bet if when you catch it on 3, 4, and 5 reels respectively. The little girl is next – you get 20 to 750 times your bet if you see her on 3-5 reels. The corresponding multipliers for the priest are 25 to 1000. The village chief is the only symbol, which pays for landing on just 2 reels, and the multipliers are 5, 25, 300, and 2000 for landing on 2, 3, 4, and 5 reels respectively. The game’s RTP is 95.05%.
Chummo is not only playful, but he can be pretty generous too. He will only appear on the three center reels 2, 3, and 4. But whenever he lands and helps form winning combinations, he makes sure that the rewards from that win combo are doubled. And the number of times he does that, you can be sure that you can get a quite a packet out of his eponymous slot.
Lama Glama has an innovative bonus mechanism. There are no scatters to trigger free spins. Instead, free spins are awarded whenever winning combinations are made. The number of free spins awarded depends on the value of that symbol.
All symbols except the chief award 1, 2, and 5 free spins when they simultaneously land on 3, 4, and 5 reels respectively. The grand chief rewards you with 1, 1, 2, and 5 free spins for landing on 2, 3, 4, and 5 reels correspondingly.
The best part is that all free spin winnings are multiplied by two. And if the wild Chummo happens to be a part of those winning combinations, the payouts are further doubled since the big-hearted rogue is used to paying out double to begin with.
This quaint game can be a real pleasure to play while multi-tasking on the move. The game’s platform is optimized for all major cellular operating systems like Windows Phone, Android, iOS, and Blackberry, etc. Hence, Lama Glama can be enjoyed on all Smartphones and tablets that run on these systems. Just log in to your favorite operator and start playing online.
The game’s HTML5 programming creates a mobile interface that automatically restructures to the small screen dynamics. This enables the game to play in high definition graphics and original sound quality. All you need to do is ensure that you have stable internet connectivity at all times. Further, the horizontal layout of the game makes landscape the best mode to play the game.
Lama Glama from Canadian software games creator Spinmatic is a refreshing take on a theme as beaten as the Incas. The game turns the spotlight on a domesticated animal far removed from the popular narrative. Speaking of narratives, we like the fact that the game begins with a story, even though we only know it from the developer’s website. The relationship between all the characters on the reels is conspicuous by its absence within the game.
Another pleasant surprise is the free spins feature and the absence of a scatter to trigger them. Attaching free spins to all winning combinations and then doubling the winnings is not only an innovative concept, but quite rewarding to players. We think that Lama Glama is an unassuming slot, whose quaintness is only matched by the theme.
