Slot of the Week 

Armageddon 10K WAYS – ReelPlay & Yggdrasil

ReelPlay has unleashed hell on the reel set in its latest collaborative slot release with Yggdrasil, exciting players with a war between demons and soldiers to claim our Slot of the Week award with Armageddon 10K WAYS

Demons terrorise a 6×4 reel grid in this slot, with players given 10,000 ways to win and the chance to claim a maximum win of x10,000 their stake. The slot offers medium-high volatility gameplay with an RTP of 96 per cent.

David Johnson, CEO at ReelPlay, commented: “ReelPlay are excited to see Armageddon 10K WAYS make its way to online players around the globe. Creating the game has been a passion project for the ReelPlay team, paying homage to beloved video games classics re-imagined for slot gaming enthusiasts. 

“With the recent successful heritage of 10K WAYS we’re confident Armageddon 10K WAYS has all the ingredients to make it a successful spinner for players and operators alike.”

ReelPlay’s latest game has an additional top horizontal row that sits above reels two through four, adding an extra symbol to each of these rows. 

Cascading wins also occur in this game, with winning symbols disappearing after providing their payouts to make way for new symbols that drop in from the top of the reels. 

Portal scatters can drop into play, triggering the bonus game mode when six or more appear on the same turn. Wild soldier symbols can only appear on the game’s top horizontal row that sits above the reel set, substituting for all symbols other than the portal scatters. 

In the bonus game mode, players are given three spins on an empty reel set where only portal scatters, demon symbols and wild soldiers can drop into play. 

Each scatter that triggered the bonus game mode will gain a prize value before becoming sticky on the reels. Each portal scatter that appears in the bonus game will display prize values ranging from x1 to x100 the player’s bet. 

Demons that drop into play will offer prizes that range from x1 to x100 the player’s wager, while blue, green, purple and red demons will appear with one, two, three or four lives, respectively. 

These lives can be taken away whenever a soldier symbol drops into play, with only one soldier able to appear on every spin. 

After dropping into play, these soldiers will gain a prize value that is equal to all demon symbols on the reels’ prize values added together, as long as those demons have one or more lives. 

After collecting demon prizes, the wild soldier will shoot each demon, taking one life away from their tallies. When having run out of lives, demon symbols cannot have their prizes collected. 

Each prize symbol that drops into play, whether a soldier, scatter or demon, will reset the number of spins to three.

Caishen: God of Fortune – Betsoft

East Asian wins are on offer in Betsoft’s latest hold-and-win title, showcasing a 5×3 reel board with 243 ways to win and a maximum win worth x2,331 the player’s stake. The slot has medium-high volatility with an RTP of 96.21 per cent.

Jonathan Crook, Account Management Team Lead of Betsoft Gaming, stated: “This game combines the allure of Chinese mythology with the high-quality gaming experience that Betsoft is known for. We are confident that players will enjoy the dynamic gameplay and the opportunity to win significant rewards.”

Gold bonus coins can drop into play, displaying prize values that range from x0.4 to x12 the player’s bet. Landing six or more coins on the same spin will activate the hold-and-win feature, where these coin prizes can be won. 

Additionally, flower-shaped coins can appear, acting as collect coins. If one of these collect coins lands alongside five or more prize coins, the hold-and-win feature will be activated. 

However, if the collect coins appear beside one to four prize coins, those coins’ prizes will be collected and awarded to the player at the end of the spin. 

Each reel can also contain stacked mystery symbols, revealing identical random low or high value symbols across the board to increase the win potential. 

Red ‘extra win’ symbols can only appear during the hold-and-win feature, collecting the values from a random number of prize symbols across the board and awarding the total to the player.

Once this has occurred, the extra win symbol will transform into a standard prize symbol. 

Green wild symbols are available, substituting for all symbols other than the prize coins, collect coins and extra win symbols. These wilds can only appear on reels two, three and four. 

In the hold-and-win game mode, players are given three spins on an empty reel set where only the triggering prize symbols start on the board. 

During the three spins, additional prize, collect and extra win coin symbols can land on the board. Each symbol that does drop into play will reset the number of spins to three. 

Only one collect symbol can appear across the feature, collecting all symbols that have previously dropped into the game mode, while also collecting the values of any subsequent prize coins that appear. 

While prize coins can appear with monetary or jackpot prizes. Jackpots that can be won from prize coins include mini (x15), minor (x30) and major (x200) prizes. 

Once the three awarded spins have been completed, the player will receive the accumulated value of all collected symbols that have dropped into play. If the board becomes filled with prize or collect symbols, the grand jackpot prize of x2,000 will be awarded. 

Triple Blaze – SYNOT Games

SYNOT Games rolled back the years with its latest slot title, offering double-stacked fruit symbols on a 3×3 reel slot with five-paylines and a maximum win of up to x1,250 the player’s wager. This slot has medium-low volatility with a 96.09 per cent RTP. 

Lukáš Hrabinský, Lead Game Producer at SYNOT Games, stated: “I’m thrilled about the launch of Triple Blaze. It combines powerful retro vibes with a standout feature. Our goal with this game was straightforward: create a compelling game that’s both easy to enjoy and challenging to master, ensuring every spin is full of potential.”

Low value symbols are represented by bars and double-stacked cherries, lemons, oranges and plums. If the right number of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x2 and x4 the player’s wager. 

However, if a win occurs with all three reels filled by cherries, lemons, oranges or plums, the total win will be multiplied by x3. This only occurs for the four double-stacked symbols. 

High value symbols come in the form of watermelons, bells and lucky sevens. These symbols can offer between x16 and x60 the player’s bet, depending on the number of matching combinations that fall on one spin.
