SlotBeats Reporter, James Ross hosts the latest edition of Slot Selection from GamblingTV, in collaboration with SlotBeats, with this weeks show including releases from ReelPlay, Tom Horn Gaming, Spearhead Studios and iSoftBet.
First up we have Buster Hammer Carnival, the fifth title launched from ReelPlay through Yggdrasil’s YG Masters program.
Buster Hammer Carnival is a five-reel slot title which offers 3,125 paylines along with a Mighty Free Spins mode which enhances the ways to win to 32,768.
During the base game, the Wild Hammer symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter. If one or more Wild Hammer appears in a win, it will trigger the Wild Striker feature.
Within this feature, Buster will hit the Wild Striker once for each reel that the Wild
Hammer has appeared on. After each hit, starting from the bottom position, up to five symbols on the corresponding reel change to Gold Wild Hammers.
Additionally, if the Free Spins and the Wild Striker feature are triggered simultaneously on the same spin, the Wild Striker feature plays first, before commencing the Free Spins.
The title comes with a medium to high volatility implemented and an RTP of 95.97 to 96.34 per cent.
Up next is the latest online slot from iSoftBet with the Irish-themed Wishing Wheel, released in time for the St Patrick’s Day celebrations.
Enter the ‘land of the leprechauns’ with this five-reel, high-volatility title, which takes the highly engaging spinning wheel from iSoftBet favourite, Hot Spin, and brings it to life with modifiers and multipliers.
Wishing Wheel also contains an Ultra Reel modifier, turning the entire reel set into one Ultra Reel, with huge win potential.
The free-spins mode is triggered when three bonus symbols land on any spin, awarding up to 15 free spins with one of the six modifiers available. In the bonus round, players can also trigger a multiplier for the entire period, leading to lucrative wins.
Third on our list comes in the form of Spearhead Studios with its much-awaited sequel to its Lara Jones franchise.
Set inside the tomb of the Egyptian Queen, Lara Jones is Cleopatra 2 is a 5×3 video slot, offering players 10 paylines and includes cascade and Free Spins.
The base game offers Cleopatra Cascade Spins where all winning symbols stick, and re-spins keep occurring until the wins can no longer be improved.
During the Free Spins mode, all Wilds are ‘sticky’ resulting in them staying in position for the remainder of the session. Additionally, if each of the reels contain at least one Wild, an extra five Free Spins are awarded.
Before commencing the round, the player will choose between two options; Majestic and Mighty Free Spins. The former offering a lower volatility level and the latter providing a higher one.
Moreover, the title includes Gamble Ladder which can be entered by clicking the gamble button after a win. Once activated, the player’s stake dictates their starting position on the ladder.
A title with a medium to high volatility level, Tom Horn spun its Wheel of Luck and landed the coveted award with its five-reel video slot which offers 25 paylines as well as including a Free Spins mode, a Hold and Win respin round and Wheel of Luck bonus round.
During the base game, if the player lands three Scatter symbols, it triggers 10 Free Spins. Moreover, if five Wheel symbols land on the reels within this mode, then players get to advance into the Hold&Win respin where Cash and Wheel symbols enhance the players’ win potential.
When appearing on the reels, Cash symbols remain fixed on the reels for the duration of Free Spins and reset the spin count to three. The suspense builds with every Wheel symbol landing on the grid as they are the ones to watch to activate the Wheel of Luck.
After securing three Wheels, players have one chance to spin the wheel. Its three levels take this bonus game up a notch, with each ring on the wheel presenting players with higher winnings. When reaching the top level, players can maximise their winnings by 1000x their bet.
