Finding spiritual enlightenment, as well of course as a stack of coins, is the goal in Nirvana, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. It comes with a bonus feature that offers free spins complete with added nudging reels, mega reels and random wilds. Available across all devices, play from between 20p and £100 per spin.
Beautifully designed as always by Yggdrasil Gaming, the symbols on the reels have a slightly strange look. Joining the lower value gemstone symbols are a wild symbol as well as a quartet of animals. Look out for the cat with an Egyptian god-like bird mask, a rabbit with antlers, a golden dragon and a phoenix style bird.
Whatever they are, they’re very well drawn – the same high standards from the visuals are evident in the sweeping, orchestral backing track. No complaints on the look and sound of Nirvana then then as per usual from Yggdrasil.
Land 2 or more of the free spins symbol to trigger an extra spin – 2 of them and you’ll get 1 free spin with a randomly chosen extra. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them and you’ll receive 10 free spins (as well as 1,000 or 5,000 coins if you land 4 or 5 free spins symbols) with a choice of 3 extras.
They are Wild Seeds which add between 2 and 4 random wilds on each of your free spins – this greatly enhances your chance of landing a winning combo. Opt for the Mega Reel and the 1 symbol will fill each row of the middle 3 reels. You’re not as likely to land a winner here than if you opt for the Wild Seeds but there’s greater potential to land a big score. Finally, there’s the Nudge Reel which moves 1 reel into a more lucrative position. It won’t trigger as big wins as the Mega Reels but re-triggering the free spins is more likely.
That becomes important as if the free spins are re-triggered you get to choose 2 of the extras rather than just one. Trigger the re-spins again and you get all 3 features which offer some terrific winning chances.
On the variance scale, Nirvana sits on the high side of medium – expect some lean base game spells but hope to cash in when the bonus feature arrives. Get lucky with the re-spins and add all 3 of extra game modes, and you could be celebrating not just spiritual but financial Nirvana too. I also recommend you try Chibeasties from Yggdrasil Gaming which is excellent.
