A wonderful game to look at and play, Builder Beaver Slots is a nicely drawn game that combines solid gameplay mechanics with a play-it-safe approach to design that will leave anyone playing it feeling like it was worth whatever time they spent on it. Although it really does nothing revolutionary as a slot or in the genre, it is a higher budget production that will still rub you the right way of looking at it at all brings a smile to your face. We can safely recommend players of all experience levels give it a try, provided that you go in with your expectations in check and an open mind.
As you might expect, the premise here of Builder Beaver Slots is much like any other slot game. Here, however, a beaver building a dam is the theme pervading the entire affair. Although in real life this would not mean a whole lot, in Builder Beaver Slots, they have taken a nature and construction angle over the top of everything with illustrative flair. It is an odd fit for a slot, but for whatever reason, it manages to work and be endearing. Maybe it is the cute cartoon facial expressions? We are not sure, but we like it.
Everything went into the art. This is the main point of Builder Beaver Slots. It is all beautifully drawn and rendered in every way, shape, and form. The colors are bright and vivid. The graphics are clear and crisp. And everything about it has a quirky, Saturday Morning Cartoon vibe to it that we really enjoy. Some of the things chosen as matching items are admittedly a little strange, but so is a beaver in a construction suit, so there is that. Overall, this is our favorite part of the game, and we feel it will be yours too if you give it a try.
Builder Beaver Slots is very standard in this respect, being a five reel slot with 25 play lines. You will either love or hate this, as there are a lot of slots on offer that do exactly the same thing, but here, it is at least done well and there is no ambiguity about what is going on.
Other standard mechanics hold here too, such as auto play, scatter symbols, wild cards, and the like. You will be matching apples, worker bells, tool boxes, lilies, saws, and pine cones rather than the typical suits of cards, which is a welcome addition and goes a long way.
One draw here is the Beaver symbol itself, which awards a 10,000 multiplier bet for each line. This is admittedly huge and welcome, and we are glad it was included.

Who is the Game NOT For?

* Averse to winning money online
* Looking for something truly innovative in the genre
* You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
As you can clearly tell, we are big fans of Builder Beaver Slots, though we acknowledge it is nothing revolutionary. It is a well drawn slot affair that a lot of love clearly went into. Every single tooth on the Beaver and pixel looks like someone enjoyed making it. For that reason, playing it is a joy, albeit a familiar one. We can wholeheartedly recommend Builder Beaver Slots to players of all ages and skill levels. It does not break the mold, but in the Beaver spirit, it does build a dam around it that manages to hold up well enough to allow the good times to build up and prevents too much of it from leaking out and making you want to quit playing all that quickly.
