Spirit of the Beast
Get ready to experience the vast wilderness of the North American plains on the slot from Relax Gaming. Spirit of the Beast will be a new video slot from Relax Gaming, available for play on desktop, tablet and mobile. The release is scheduled for 22nd June 2021. Currently, we don’t have all details about the format, features, pay mechanics or graphics but check back regularly as we will complete this review in due time.
Spirit of the beast is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 15 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols landing on a line from left to right only. You can experience the wild wilderness on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.10 to 100 credits per spin. The game has high volatility (4/5) with an RTP of 96.36% and a hit frequency of roughly 1:5 spins. Using the Bonus Buy option will slightly increase the RTP value to 97.00%.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card suits – blue diamonds, purple spades, green clubs, yellow hearts – as well as a red star, awarding 2x to 4x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by wolves, mustangs, eagles bears and buffalo. Hit five on a line to win 10x to 20x your stake. A golden bird statue is the wild, all performing the usual substitutions duties and yielding 20x our bet for five. A dreamcatcher marked with ‘Free Spins’ acts as the scatter.
Spirit of the Beast Slot Features
In between blockbusters such as Money Train 2 and Iron Bank, Relax Gaming seems to tone it down for a few releases and create slots that are more leisurely if you like. Wild Chapo was the latest and now Spirit of the Beast. Beautifully themed with impressive graphics and animations, it takes us on a less volatile reel ride through the American plains.
The base game might seem nonchalant most of the times but can deliver wins of up to 300 times your bet on a single spin. The best moment for that to happen is when the random Spirit Summoner feature is triggered at the start of any spin. One animal symbol is randomly selected to feature in large stacks on the reels while all others are removed for the spin. Landing a full screen of the top-paying buffalo is worth the mentioned 300 times your stake.
The travel across the American plains gets more intense in the Mighty Multiplier Free Spins feature. Landing three scatters anywhere on the three centre reels will trigger 12 free spins while during the feature each scatter will add +! spin to the tally. Each of the five prairie animals and the wild icon is now appearing on top of the reels in a collection meter with a fixed bet multiplier win for completing the collection – wolf at 20x, mustang at 50x, eagle at 100x, bear at 300x, buffalo at 1,000x and wild at 10,000x your bet.
Each meter has five bars and any time a full stack on the participating symbols lands it will illuminate one bar. Complete one or more meters before you run out of spins and you will win the respective prizes which will be added to the total win from the feature.
Lastly, for those impatient among us, there is an opportunity for an instant explosive bonus round. Clicking on the Buy Feature button will allow you to purchase a Free Spins feature at 70x your base bet (restricted in some jurisdictions). Once purchased, the game will start a spin where three scatters will land guaranteed to trigger the Mighty Multiplier Free Spins.
Spirit of the Beast might come across like a leisurely trip to the American plains for some wildlife watching. And the average hit rate and decent payouts in most features might indicate that it is indeed that. However, overall the game is still quite volatile and completing any of the meters is a tough endeavour as hours of testing have shown.
