Chinese legend, beautiful aquatic creatures and interplanetary adventure feature strongly in this week’s newest video slot releases from Playtech – Ways of the Phoenix, Luminous Life and Galactic Streak. You can play all 3 of them today at Paddy Power Casino.
Ways of the Phoenix
Mythical creatures take centre stage in Ways of the Phoenix. The base game action in this Asian adventure starts on a 5 reel, 45 ways to win reel set. Land a winning combination though and you’ll unlock previously frozen position. This also increases the possible ways to win. At their maximum, the reels can offer 3,125 ways to win. After a losing spin, the reels revert back to the standard 45 ways to win.
The main feature is the Dragon & Phoenix Free Games feature where you’ll have the chance to land between 8 and 50 free spins initially. Once again, a winning outcome unlocks frozen symbols. Unlike the base game a losing free spin doesn’t refreeze symbols and bring down the number of ways to win. Well designed, this is an unusual take on the classical Chinese slot.
The second new arrival takes players deep below the ocean waves. Luminous Life is a superb looking 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot. The reels are made up of an assortment of aquatic creatures and are superbly done. The setting might be rather tranquil but there’s plenty of action here courtesy of the 2 features.
After every winning spin, you’ll trigger the Luminous Respin feature – this is a streak spin where the symbols from the triggering spin are held. These keep on coming as long as a new matching symbols adds to the original win.
Landing 3 or more scatters awards the Luminous Wilds Free Games feature with 5 free spins. The scatters from the triggering spin turn into wilds which lock in place for the duration of the feature. Scatters can be part of a Luminous Respin so it’s possible to land a large number of scatters on the same set of free spins with potentially excellent results. Fill all the reels positions with scatters to win the Grand Prize Bonus. Very easy on the senses, Luminous Life also delivers some very lively action.
Rounding out the hat-trick of new releases is Galactic Streak. As you can no doubt deduce from its name, it’s a space-themed video slot. It’s played using an unusual 4 reel, 20 payline win both ways game engine and comes with super sharp visuals and a fantastic ambient style soundtrack.
The gameplay isn’t too shabby either. Land a winner and that symbol position gains a multiplier for the next 3 spins. This starts at 2x but can increase further if another winner hits there. Get on a roll and they can reach 10x. Better still is if you land 2 or more multiplier positions on the same spin as the multiplier values are added together for an even bigger boost.
Galactic Streak also comes with a Galactic Free Games feature that awards 10 free spins. Any multipliers from the triggering spin are carried through to the free spins. The colourful design and repetitive gameplay works well together. If you like the space theme, you’ll want to blast off on the Galactic Streak.
