Bulls and Bears Slots
With a lot to love, Bulls and Bears Slots features a colorful cartoon cast, tried and true game mechanics, and a certain zany flare that will have you playing game after game despite it not deviating that far from the standard formula. A lot of love and care went into this game, and it shows. It does not feature a lot that you have not seen before, but for short and long play sessions it does manage to be very addictive and fun. We recommend players of all skill levels give it a try. If you get hooked after the first few plays, you can likely play it forever without getting bored.
As you might expect, there is not much of a premise to this game, which adds to some of its charm. Many cartooned themed games have somewhat of a point to them, drawing from classic themes and the like. Not so with Bulls and Bears Slots. Random is the name of the game here, and we are still scratching our heads every time we see the cover shot. In a good way of course, as it is pretty funny looking at the cover image and wondering how any of this all fits together.
Everything went into the art. This is where the game shines, and where most of the production values clearly went. Featuring beautiful hand drawn pictures at each and every spin, Bulls and Bears Slots is a well crafted game through and through. Everything is clean, clear, and crisp, despite how odd some of it at times can be. Although you should not go in expecting Disney quality visuals here, it is all well done enough to be endearing, and get the off beat cartoon humor across.
One thing to note, however, is a slight disconnect here between the expressive cartoon animal faces, and how the rest of the game is drawn. In this case, that disconnect ends up adding an element of humor to them, the other elements of the game looking oddly more realistic when stacked up next to the bull and bear counterparts.
Bulls and Bears Slots is a standard five reel slot game with 25 different play lines to enjoy. One thing of note, which manages to work its way into the title image in case you were unaware of it, is the free game guarantee offer built into each play session. If you have not won a single free game within 100 total spins, you will get a free one, which is a nice touch for players down on their luck.
In addition to that, the chart symbol activates the game’s free game mode. Land more of them, and you get more spins here. Matching 3 can land a 5 free games, while 5 can max out at 15 free games.
Other than that, expect standard mechanics here throughout with a slight bear and bull theme. Bulls and bears can substitute as a match for any symbol, either alone or in combination with others. Bears, however, can multiply your winnings by 4, making them highly sought after.
Random jackpots are also present and always welcome.

Who is this Game For?
This game is suitable for players of all types. In particular, it should appeal to:
* Players new to digital slots and looking for something relatively accessible
* Moderate intensity players that have gotten their feet plenty wet in the online slots world and are looking for something a little more involved
* Jaded slot vets
* People that mostly want to win a bunch of money playing digital slot games
* Players looking for slot nostalgia for the similarities and differences this slot has to other games
* People more used to normal video games that are looking to get their feet wet in the world of online slots
Who is the Game NOT For?
Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:
* 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.
A wonderful game at every turn, Bulls and Bears Slots succeeds at everything it sets out to do. It does not set out to do a whole lot more than be a competent slot with a nice art style, however. For better or worse, it does still manage to be fun and zany, and will have you subtly smiling as you play spin after spin due to how randomly some of the elements look together. We give it a solid recommendation to at least try.
