News Broadcast Graphics
The graphics in Todays Weather pokie have been designed to look like those from a typical news broadcast. They do not fit into the cartoon category, but are not realistic either. They may actually be in an entirely new category. The reels are set on a weather screen and each one has been allocated a day of the week as if to look like a five day forecast. The background will change between night and day as a clock in the bottom right hand corner shows either am or pm hours. The buttons at the bottom of the screen have been done to look like the moving headlines often seen in a news broadcast. All in all, Todays Weather slot is a pretty innovative slot with a professional feel.
Wet Weather Forecast
The symbols in Todays Weather are mostly theme related, and have to do with different weather conditions. The bottom of the scale symbols are from a deck of cards and have been illuminated to look like they are glowing. The rest of the symbols are icons referring to wind, snow, rain and sun. These are worth 500 to 1000 credits respectively for five of them in a row. The sun is the only base symbol that will pay out for only two of them in a row.
The Wild Weather symbol is the games wild. Found on all of the reels this icon will replace all other symbols in the game except for the scatter which is the slots logo.
