Sweet Cheese from EGT: Slot Review - make lots of cheddar in this game!
Everybody loves a bit of cheese, right? Well, that is what software producer EGT is banking on with their latest slot release Sweet Cheese. This game is a strange combination of a few themes as not only does it feature cheese but also a couple of mice who are living it up VIP style! So if you have a penchant for the finer things in life, like mice in general, and know your Brie from your Manchego then this game was tailormade with you in mind.
Sweet Cheese is a 5 reel slot with 20 paylines and features Free Spins, an Extra Wild symbol, a Gamble mode, and a 4 level Progressive Jackpot.
The first feature to mention is the Wild symbol and this symbol is depicted by a slice of cheese sitting on top of a round piece of yellow cheese. It substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter and Special symbols to help form winning combinations on the reels. Keep a close eye on this symbol while spinning the reels as it is the highest paying symbol in the game. Land 5 of these symbols on an active payline and you'll be treated to a fantastic 2,500X payout!
There is also a Special symbol in the game that is illustrated by a mouse holding a pink gift. This symbol only appears on the 2nd and 4th reels and when it appears it will randomly convert symbols into additional Wild symbols to really help boost your chances of landing a big win. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol and if it appears on reels 2 and 4 at the same time just know that it cannot convert into one and the same symbol.
The Scatter symbol is denoted by an image of a mousetrap and if you land 3 Scatter symbols in any position then you will activate the Free Spins game. In this feature, you will be awarded 8 Free Spins, a 2X multiplier, and one symbol will be chosen at random to act as an additional Wild symbol. During Free Spins, the Special symbol substitutes for all symbols apart from the Scatter symbol. You can retrigger Free Spins by landing 3 more Scatter symbols while in this feature.
Whenever you land a win on the reels, you will activate the optional Gamble feature. In this fun but risky minigame, you have to guess the colours of red or black of some random playing cards. Guess correctly and your win is doubled. It is possible to continue doubling your money for up to 5 rounds but a word of caution, if you guess incorrectly at any time then you will lose all of your current winnings and be taken back to the main game.
The last feature to discuss is the set of 4 progressive jackpots which are located on the top of the reels. These jackpots can be won at any time on any spin. When you do trigger a jackpot game, you’ll be taken to a new screen where you get to choose 3 cards from a pack of 12 cards. If all 3 cards match the same suit of one of the progressive jackpots then you will win that corresponding jackpot.
Theme and Graphics
The game features some beautiful graphics as the reels are displayed inside an ornate golden frame and the backdrop of the slot is a luxurious looking mansion. The symbols look like they are hand-drawn and the mice look so adorable dressed up to the nines in the finest of clothes! There is a nice variety of symbols in this game that include Mice, Pancakes, Drinks, Mousetraps, Cheese, Cheesecakes, and the standard A-10 icons. The animations are worth a mention as symbols glisten and rotate whenever you land a win on the reels.
There is not much music in this slot apart from a few sound effects. However, that all changes when you land a win on the reels as a nice piece of lounge-style music kicks in. It ties in nicely with the unique theme of the game.

Our Verdict on Sweet Cheese
Popular software producer EGT created this slot and it is really good fun to play and will provide players with countless hours of entertainment. The theme is a strange one and one that has not been done before but it is highly original and this should draw in plenty of players to check it out. The Free Spins feature is the standout attraction of the game and it is great that not only do you get Free Spins, a 2X Multiplier but also additional Wilds which really increase your chances of landing a nice payday. Another incentive to try this game is that you can win a maximum payout of 2,5000X on each spin as well as the opportunity to win from 4 different Progressive Jackpots. I found this game to be of medium variance so you’ll find that wins are nicely balanced the more you play.
