Popular online casino game developer, NetEnt delighted fans by releasing its first-ever 100-payline slot, Archangels: Salvation. In this 6 reel, 12 row game, NetEnt has breathed new life into the fairly tired good-versus-evil slots theme.
Archangels: Salvation features striking, 3D graphics that carry the theme through from the backdrop of the reels to the symbols that populate them. The game play of this new title also measures up to the high standard we have come to expect from NetEnt slots. It includes stacked Wilds, Scatter symbols, free spins, and an exciting Heaven and Hell feature.
With an engaging soundtrack and fun audio effects, the 6reels move against the backdrop of a desolate landscape spilt in 2 by the epic war that rages between the forces of Good and Evil.
To the left of the reels, on the side of Good, a flaxen-haired, sword-bearing angel with a massive pair of white wings hovers in a powerful stance over the landscape, which is bathed in a soft blue light. On the opposite side of the screen stands a horned demon, also bearing a sword and clad in heavy Medieval-era armour. Behind the demon, the landscape is scorched and awash with lava, under an ominous scarlet sky.
In addition to the usual hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs, Archangels: Salvation features a number of theme-appropriate symbols. These include helmets, hooded cloaks, lions, and skulls, among others. The most valuable symbols in this slot are the angel and demon featured alongside the reels. Landing five of these on a single payline will get you the top base-game payout of 150 coins.
The most important thing to look out for in Archangels: Salvation is the 2x2 Wild symbol. This symbol can stand in for all other symbols except the Scatter to increase players’ chances of landing winning combinations.
Also, as you will read in a moment, the Wild symbol plays an important role in the game’s Heaven and Hell bonus feature.
The other special symbol in the Archangels: Salvation slot is the Scatter. This valuable symbol triggers free spins when 3 or more appears anywhere on the reels. The number of free spins awarded depends on the number of Scatters landed and ranges between 10 and 25. Unfortunately, free spins cannot be retriggered while in play.
The most unique element of Archangels: Salvation is its Heaven and Hell bonus feature. These are triggered when 2x2 wild symbols appear in special hot spots located in the bottom and top 2 reels for hell and heaven respectively.
The Heaven feature involves between two stacks of wilds varying in length from three to five symbols. The Hell feature, meanwhile, offers between 8 and 16 single Wilds. The great news is that this feature can be retriggered. Also, hot spot areas increase to three rows during Scatters to further improve your chances.
This online slot looks set to offer players a whole new way to win, and is now available at casinos that feature games powered by NetEnt.
