Fans of South Park Reel Chaos, prepare for a déjà vu moment. While NetEnt removed the original at the end of 2018 due to the expiration of the licence with the rights owners, it is bringing back the pay mechanics and features on the new game. The hilarious cartoon friends Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman have been replaced with a new gang of four, each with their own antics that will provide the excitement and entertainment in your reel session.
Arcane Reel Chaos is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can spin the reels on desktop, mobile and tablet from 0.20 to 100 credits. The factory RTP of this medium variance game is set at a generous 96.81%.
The visuals on Arcane Reel Chaos have something sinister that reminds us of a doomsday scenario. The failing businessman Don Parker is trying to sell a mysterious talisman but ends up releasing an ancient evil spirit that puts him under a spell and transforms into the villain Deep Pockets. As he ravages through the city he leaves the streets in ruins with shattered houses and broken windows that can be seen in the background of the game window. It is now up to the four heroes – Flare, Chrono, Zero.x and Psyop – to defeat Deep Pockets and save their city.
Open the game to find the card royals from 10 through to A at the low end, awarding between 2x to 5x your stake for a five of a kind. They are followed by the four heroes – Psyop, Chrono, Zero.x and Flare – as well as the villain Deep Pockets. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 7.5x to 50x your bet. There is also a wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols and awarding the same win as Deep Pockets when five land on a line. A venomous snake around a precious amulet is the scatter symbol, appearing on reels one, three and five only.
Arcane Reel Chaos Mini Features
The reel chaos on this slot starts in the base game with four random features. Every hero will unleash its own power to modify the reels, apply multipliers or award respins. They can be triggered either at the start of a new spin or when the round ends with no win.
- Psyop’s Stacked Wilds: Psyop will randomly turn two or three reels into stacked wilds at the start of a spin
- Zero.x’s Overlay Wilds: Zero.x will randomly place 3 to 5 wilds at the start of a spin
- Flare’s Multiplier: Flare will randomly multiply wins by x3, x4 or x5 for the current spin
- Chrono’s Respin: Chrono will randomly award respins after a losing spin until a win occurs. For every respin, a progressive multiplier increases by x1, up to a maximum of x10.
Arcane Reel Reel Chaos Free Spins
Hit snake scatters one reels one, two and three to trigger the bonus feature. The heroes will fight Deep Pockets one by one in an open-end free spins round with multiple levels. The four heroes have a common health metre that comes as default with six lives. One extra life is awarded for each completed level.
In turn, the villain has only two lives on level 1, increasing to four, five and six lives on levels 2, 3 and 4 respectively. Every winning spin will deal damage to Deep Pockets, costing him one life for each blow while the heroes will lose one life for every losing spin.
You have to defeat Deep Pockets on each level to progress to the next stage. Run out of lives and the bonus round ends or defeat Deep Pockets on level four to take home an extra bonus reward.
The rumours network was running hot ever since NetEnt released the first news about the Arcane Reel Chaos slot. The question was whether it will be a sequel to the immensely popular South Park Reel Chaos slot or simply a clone. It turned out to be more of the latter, although the dark and sinister theme is giving it a different atmosphere. However, just like the original, Arcane Reel Chaos is entertaining to play with a flurry of features that have good win potential.
