Yggdrasil Gaming’s Avatars: Gateway Guardians Video Slot Review

Avatars: Gateway Guardians: Demo

Yggdrasil Gaming has really mixed things up with the creation of Avatars: Gateway Guardians. Rather than reels, the action in this sci-fi adventure takes place on 3 concentric circles which combine to offer 6 winning zones. Land a winner in a Hot Spot to bring multipliers into play which can reach up to 101x. Trigger the feature to land 10 free games with up to 8 Hot Spots live. Join the Gateway Guardians on all devices from between 10p and £40 per spin.

Unique game mechanic

The set up in the Avatar: Gateway Guardians slot is a little bit different from your standard release. You won’t see fruit spinning on reels. Instead, you’ll see 3 shining orbs and 4 Gateway Guardians flowing around the screen on 3 concentric rings. These rings are split into 6 sections. Fill the 3 positions in a single section with the same symbol and you’ll create a winner. Payouts range from between 1 and 40 times your stake. There’s scope to add to this if you land a winner in a Hot Spot though.

Hot Spot Multipliers up to 101x

The segment in the top middle portion of the rings is edged in a white glow. This indicates the Hot Spot. Land a winning combination in the Hot Spot and you’ll activate the Multiplier Wheel feature. This appears below the rings and shows a range of numbers. The number hit by the lightning strike is your multiplier.

The Multiplier Wheel spins again and the lightning strikes once more. The lightning strikes continue until you land the collect (the open palm). The multipliers are added together then applied to your original win for your total payout. Multipliers here can reach up to 101x.

10 free spins with up to 8 Hot Spots

Trigger the Free Spins feature round by landing 3 or more free spins symbols on the same spin and you can look forward to 10 free spins. These are played on a new machine that’s made up of 8 rather than 6 segments. You’ll also have more Hot Spots active. The number will be between 2 and 8 depending on what happened on the triggering spin. More Hot Spots mean more potential for multipliers too.

Win up to 2,525 x bet

With its highly unusual game engine, Avengers: Gateway Guardians looks rather complicated on first view. It does take a little getting used to so have a spin in play mode if possible. Once you’ve become accustomed to the unorthodox mechanic, it’s pretty straightforward.

The Hot Spot multipliers can deliver some pretty tasty action, especially during the feature. Payouts can reach a maximum of 2,525 times your bet on each spin or free spin. As usual for an Yggdrasil Gaming slot, the design here is top class. Mix that together and you have an innovative and very playable sci-fi slot.
