Enter a mystical fantasy world for the ultimate battle on the slot from NetEnt. Archangels: Salvation is taking you on a high-volatility reel adventure where the angelic host of heaven is in the midst of an eternal battle for the greater good of the world against the demon from hell. A 6×12 reel set with 100 pay lines, two separate Hot Spot areas and a free spins round can lead to wins of up to 375 times your bet on every spin.
Archangels: Salvation is a video slot with 6 reels, 12 rows and 100 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can join the battle on desktop or mobile from 0.40 to 100 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.08%.
Visually, the game comes with a fantasy theme that attributes on side of the game to its master, so to speak. The left is in serene heaven scene with an angel while the right side depicts hell with inferno colours and the devil. Elaborate 3D animations with intricately designed pay symbols and an intense soundtrack complete the slot design.
The pay symbols are all stacked, starting with the crafted card suits – spades, clubs, hearts and diamonds – at the low end, awarding 0.75x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed on the medium level by an emblem and a mask for each of the characters. The premiums are the Devil and the Angel symbols. Hit five on a line to win 1.25x to 3.75x your stake.
Wild symbols are an intricate tile with a lion’s head and the character ‘W’ across it. They appear either as a single symbol or a 2×2 block and substitute for all symbol except scatters. Free Spins are triggered by minimum three scatters symbols marked with the character ‘S’.
Archangels: Salvation Slot Features
The game is action-packed and makes for intense slotting sessions. At the core are two features, one attribute to each of the characters. Two rows at the top and bottom of the game grid are designated Hot Spot areas, the top for Heaven and the bottom for Hell. A 2×2 Wild block landing fully or partially in any of the two areas will trigger the respective Wild Feature:
- Heaven Wild Feature: Randomly adds two stacks of wilds that are 3 – 5 symbols high when triggered by a partial wild block or four wild stacks for a full wild block in the Heaven Hot Spot area. The stacks can be added on the same reel.
- Hell Wild Feature: Adds 8 | 16 random single wilds to the reels for a partial | full 2×2 Wild block in the Hell Hot Spot area.
The opposing feature can be triggered if any of the random stacked or single wilds from the initial feature land in the opposite Hot Spot area. Reactivating the same feature is not possible.
Scatters appear in stacks of two symbols. Three, four, five or six in partial of full view anywhere on the reels in one spin will award 10, 15, 20 and 25 Free Spins respectively, which cannot be retriggered. During the feature, the Hot Spot areas are increased from 2 to 3 rows, providing extra potential to activate one of the Wild features.
Archangels: Salvation is an intense slot with great visual and stunning animations. However, that is where my admiration ended as the win potential is simply too low to make it attractive for hardcore slotting folks. It can though deliver wins in the 50x – 150x range pretty frequently.
