During the mid-19th century, tons of scientists from all over the world worked tirelessly to solve the world’s myriad problems—especially disease. Of these scientists, Louis Pasteur of France was one of the most famous. His work with microbiology would eventually lead to the discovery of pasteurization, the process by which we eliminate and prevent bacteria in milk and wine. In fact, Pasteur did so much for the field that he’s known to many as one of the three fathers of microbiology.
When you’ve accomplished so much in your life, you deserve plenty of praise. To honor the life and discoveries of Louis Pasteur, 2By2 Gaming created Greener Pasteur, a science-based slot game that will have Breaking Bad fans and expert chemists alike completely hooked. But this game isn’t all about science—you’ll need plenty of luck to land a big win and walk away with greener pockets.
There are 5 reels, 3 rows and 30 lines in Greener Pasteur. Unlike many other slot games with lots of paylines, Greener Pasteur doesn’t allow you to toggle the number of active lines. In fact, there are only two settings to worry about in this game: the coin size setting allows you to change the amount you’re betting (the amount of coins per line is fixed at 1,) and the auto play feature allows you to play a predetermined number of spins.
All of this game’s symbols are inspired by Pasteur himself. All of the symbols—except for the Greener Pasteur symbol—only pay out when you land 3 or more on a payline. In order from lowest to highest value, these are the symbols: J, Q, A, K, vials, germs, syringe, microscope, Louis Pasteur, and the Greener Pasteur symbol.
Occasionally, the special germ feature will trigger. When this feature is triggered, all germ symbols in sight will turn into the best symbol, award a random prize, or turn into a wild symbol. This feature is triggered at random times.
The wild symbol in this game is a microscope, and it only appears on reels 2 and 4. It substitutes for any symbol except for scatters, and multiplies your prize by 2, 3 or 4. The scatter symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, and gives you 12 free spins when you land 3 anywhere on the board. These spins are played automatically using the bet you placed when you triggered the scatter feature.
The largest possible win in Greener Pasteur is 72,000 coins which can be valued between 0.01 and 1.00.
Although this is a great slot game, availability is definitely an issue. Although you can play Greener Pasteurs for free through many different websites, 2By2 Gaming doesn’t offer an official version on their site. Also, you may get an error message about connecting from an unsupported country, in which case you’ll have to download a VPN extension such as Hola for Chrome.
Playing for real money is no problem—if you can find Greener Pasteurs for free at an online casino, they probably offer a cash version, too.
As for a mobile version of this game, you’re out of luck. 2By2 Gaming doesn’t typically offer downloadable mobile versions of their games, and most mobile devices don’t support Adobe Flash Player which is required for this game.
Although Greener Pasteur is packed full of references to science and the great Louis Pasteur, 2By2 Gaming didn’t forget to make this a fun slot game. If there are any complaints to be made about this game, it’s that the number of paylines is fixed and there may be availability issues. As far as the design goes, it’s aesthetically pleasing and the music and sound effects aren’t overwhelming.
As far as features go, this game has everything you could ask for except for a bonus game. The free spins feature, special germ feature and multipliers all give this game a fresh and exciting feel while providing you with lots of chances at big prizes.
This isn’t a particularly mind-blowing slot game—it could use more bet customization and a bonus game—but if you’re looking for something different, it’s got a few unique features that make it absolutely worth trying out
