Slot specialist Evoplay is ready to release their latest video Match 3 slot - Racoon Tales! The game, themed around the exploits of one very playful raccoon that finds caves filled with treasures - and fights monsters and dragons in the process.
What is peculiar about this game is that the action takes place both on the reels AND in the background’s forest! The two planes are intertwined: the amount of winning symbols on the reels will determine the power of raccoon’s attack on a rival.
So Much to Play For
Racoon Tales provides 5 bonus mechanics, three distinct Extra Spin modes and 3 types of random events.
Evoplay’s game, whose release date is still undisclosed, has RTP of 96.2%, very high volatility and is playable in vertical/portrait mode on mobile phones, as well.

A Forest Theme Going Strong
This game comes immediately after Evoplay has announced ANOTHER forest-themed game - Forest Dreams.
This slot game is actually inspired by the works of the Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki and his famed breed of Anime characters.
The 20-payline game with an RTP of 96% was commented on by the CEO Ivan Kravchuk, who said that “with inviting Far-Eastern symbols, an immersive theme and flawless mathematics, the release fits perfectly with our pioneering portfolio comprised of more than 100 hit games.”
