Following the success of Chibeasties slot, Yggdrasil prepared a much better, improved sequel, Chibeasties 2 slot. In all honesty, we have a feeling that you’ll experience playing this slot as a love and hate relationship. The game looks amazing, which you will love, but you will hate the poor hit rate. We can’t say that about the overall returns, but we can confidently say it in regards to the hit rate.
These little cute looking creatures can definitely make your day! Just make sure you know in which realm you’re playing, otherwise the win anticipation might end as futile. For what it’s worth, Chibeasties 2 has the potential to become the next flagship slot coming from the studios of Yggdrasil Gaming.

In case you’ve played the first edition of Chibeasties, you’ll be familiar with the bet settings. The coin can have a value in the range of 0.01 and 5. Considering the game is a 20 payline slot, the entry bet is a modest €0.20 and high rollers can enjoy it with a maximum bet of €100 per spin.
Now, as we said in the introduction, the game comes with a low hit rate. On the other hand, the theoretical RTP stands at 96.20%, which is above the market average. The secret to big profits lies in frequent, small wins. As a standalone ground, the base game does not bring many thrills. Thankfully, there are frequent bonus features.
Chibeasties is without a doubt, one of the best looking recent slot releases in general. The cute looking Chibeasties are designed with the tiniest of details in mind. There are no card like symbols, instead, there are mushrooms in different colors. Watch out, the purple and blue mushrooms are almost identical.
The game comes with a Scatter and a Wild symbol. As expected, the Scatter triggers free spins, up to 30 to be precise. Nevertheless, Free Rounds are triggered rather rare. This makes the whole profit potential based on the frequency of the Wild symbols. Speaking of which, the most distinctive feature of Chibeasties 2 are the 4 different realms. Each realm comes with its very own Wild symbol with special advanced mechanic.
Let’s get Free Spins clear before we go deep in the each realm individually. It takes 3, 4 or 5 Scatters to trigger 7, 15 or 30 free spins. Even 7 free rounds can be rather rewarding, considering every Wild that appears during free rounds Mutates and Combo Wilds are triggered. This happens regardless of what realm you’re in. Now, imagine what can happen with 30 free rounds! Chibeasties 2 certainly is rewarding!
Here are the 4 realms along with a brief explanation and our evaluation:
- Expanding Realm – The reel on which the Wild is positioned is covered with Wild Symbols. Although it sounds alluring and lucrative, in practice it’s not. Other realms are much more profitable and entertaining at the same time.
- Teleporting Realm – This is the most profitable realm! Whenever a Wild appears anywhere on the reels, the Wilds are teleported to form the highest paying line. In combination with the Mutate bonus feature, the Teleporting Realm comes on top! We recommend playing in this realm.
- Spreading Realm – The 2nd best realm to play in. Any Wild that appears on the reels adds between 1 to 4 additional wild symbols randomly positioned on the reels. It’s pretty straightforward. An occasional Mutate feature can cover almost the entire grid with Wild Symbols. In case you get bored of the Teleporting Realm, switch to the Spreading Realm.
- Mirroring Realm – It’s underwhelming, regardless of your point of view. Adding one or even two additional wild symbols can end up without a win. It’s almost pointless to play the game in this realm.
Chibeasties 2 introduces several new bonus features and it certainly raises the bar in the graphics and audio departments. Players who are unaware of the bonus features’ mechanics will definitely lose a significant portion of their funds just because they’re playing in the wrong realm.
