Yggdrasil & ReelPlay shoot down the competition to claim Slot of the Week

SlotBeats has been on the hunt for its latest Slot of the Week title and Yggdrasil and ReelPlay delivered the goods with Bucks and Doe 10K WAYS, tasking players with chasing down grizzly bears to claim big wins. 

While players set their sights on deer, elk and moose, the slot presents a 6×4 reel board that showcases 10,000-ways to win. A maximum win of x6,116 is available, while the game uses an RTP of 96.1 per cent with medium-high volatility. 

Mark McGinley, Chief Gaming Officer at Yggdrasil, commented: “ReelPlay’s exemplary 10K WAYS mechanic has added a fresh angle to the YG Masters portfolio, and the latest release, Bucks and Doe 10K WAYS, also adds an exciting theme in that of the hunter. It is another fantastic collaboration through the program, and we’re confident players will love it with the high-volatility bonus round.”

Low value symbols come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, from nine through to Ace. If the right number of winning combinations appear on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.1 and x1.2 the player’s stake. 

Next up, deer, elk, moose and hunters depict the high value symbols, offering between x0.25 and x50 the player’s preferred bet. Purple scatter symbols are available, triggering the bonus respins feature if three land on the same spin. 

David Johnson, Chief Executive Officer at ReelPlay, added: “ReelPlay’s 10K WAYS series gets stronger with every release; it’s fast becoming a trusted IP that both operators and players alike actively seek. This latest instalment features our popular Bonus Respins for huge win potential with a number of modifiers for optimal player engagement. 

“Paired with a unique theme, we’re confident that Bucks and Doe 10K WAYS will become another valuable addition to our partners’ portfolios.”

When triggering the bonus respins feature, one of the scatters will show a trophy prize that can be won in the bonus respins game mode, ranging from bronze (x10) to platinum (x2,000). 

Players are given three spins in the bonus respins game mode, where moose, deer and elk symbols can drop into play displaying prize values between x1 to x200 the player’s bet. 

On each spin, a target will aim for one cell on the reel set, awarding prize values if it lands over one of the moose, elk, deer or trophy scatter symbols. 

Additionally, hunter symbols can drop into play. This will cause all prize values present on the reels for that spin to be collected. Ammunition symbols are also available, resetting the number of spins to three when they appear on the board. 

Finally, bear symbols are included. These bear symbols start with three lives, and will depict a prize value equivalent to the range of the moose, deer and elk symbols. 

On each respin, the bear symbol will eat another prize symbol, collecting its value and adding it to its own. If the bear is then targeted, its increased prize value will be collected and it will lose one life, staying on the board until all three lives have been taken.
