24th March 2021 | Relax Gaming – Templar Tumble
The fourth addition to the Tumble series from Relax Gaming will see you joining the fearless Templar Knights on a highly volatile quest across a 6×7 grid. Cascading wins will crumble blockers to open more positions before new symbols tumble into the empty spaces, revealing mystery stones in the process that can turn into a common symbol or coins worth up to 1,000 times your bet. Clear the grid and you will be entering the sacred chamber of free spins to retrieve treasures worth up to 17,371 times your bet.
Played on a 6×7 grid, Templar Tumble features a betting range of 0.10 to 20 credits and an RTP of 96.26%. The game is combining the typical cascading symbol mechanic with a 117,649-ways Megaways-style reel set. A random number of two to seven symbols tumbles on to each reel for every spin while blockers will cascade on top to complete the grid.
Any winning combo from left to right will shatter as well as destroy all adjacent blockers. The remainder including undestroyed blockers drops towards the bottom and new symbols cascade into the empty spaces from the top. Remove all blockers within the same spin and you will gain entry to the sacred chamber of free spins, which is played on the fully opened grid.
24th March 2021 | Yggdrasil Gaming – Easter Island 2
From the medieval cathedral on Templar Tumble to an exotic beach on Yggdrasil’s sequel to Easter Island. The Moai boneheads are jetting off on a spring break holiday to Venice Beach for another hilarious reel adventure that could sweeten your virtual travels with up to 2,500 times your bet.
Available on all devices, you can bet from 0.25 to 300 credits while the RTP is set at 96%. The gameplay is based on an expanding grid, starting in a 6×4 format with 25 pay lines and reaching at maximum a 6×8 size with then 55 lines. All further enhanced with a range of modifiers – Symbol Swap and Colossal Block Respin – based on whether you hit a 3, 4 or 5-of-a-kind win. Score a 6OAK and it will trigger the reel expansion with the other modifiers activated.
25th March 2021 | Stakelogic – Bandits Thunder Link
The next stop on your virtual travels will take you from Venice Beach to the Wild West where you can join a band of outlaws for a reel heist worth up to 50,000 times your bet. Stakelogic’s Bandits Thunder Link combines Dead or Alive 2 from NetEnt and Money Train 2 from Relax Gaming into a highly volatile slot creation with three types of bonus games.
The reel heist goes down on a 5×3 reel set with 10 fixed pay lines, featuring bet sizes between 0.10 to 10 credits and an RTP of 95.60%. Just like on its two counterparts, the main attractions are the bonus features – two free spins round with simple or multiplier sticky wilds as well as one respin feature with money symbols and extras that will further boost the winnings.
25th March 2021 | Play’n GO – Shimmering Woods
For the final stop of this week, we leave the real world and enter a fantasy forest filled with shiny gems on Shimmering Woods from Play’n GO. A cascading symbol mechanic combined with splitting symbols provides the means to extend the standard 5×3 grid with 243 ways to a maximum 5×6 size with then 7,776 ways. Enter the free spins and you will be guaranteed to have split symbols on the reels for bigger wins that could peak at 25,000 times your bet.
Bet sizes range from 0.20 to 100 which should please all types of players. The default RTP is set at 96.20% although Play’n GO is known to offer customizable settings. Scoring any win will activate the cascading symbol mechanic with new symbols dropping into vacated positions to potentially land another winner and extend the spin sequence. A progressive multiplier increases by x1 after each cascade, further boosting payouts. The main event is a Free Spins round with guaranteed split symbols and retriggers.
Well, our weekly virtual slot voyage ends here! We hope you will enjoy your reel travels should you decide to take the new slots for a spin in your next gaming session.
