Where to play?
ActionOps Snow & Sable slot in partnership with Triple Edge Studios is a Microgaming medium to high variance video slot with 10 paylines and 5 reels, it pays a top jackpot (non-progressive) of 1,000x (£100,000)your stake on a single spin.
Built into the mechanic of the game is a free spins bonus that offers an unlimited amount of free falls along with two fully stacked wild reels (reels 1 and 5). You can spin the reels from £0.10 to £100 per spin playable on PCs (Windows and Apple Mac) or mobile devices (Androids, iPhones and tablets).
The theme is set within the futuristic city of Aurora, your job is to assist our crime-fighting duo (Snow & Sable). The visuals presented in slot machines are entering a new era of realistic rendering, unfortunately ActionOps Snow & Sable doesn’t cut the cloth for us.
The visuals are, well…pretty basic. There are 8 symbols on the reels of which are 2 premium and 2 basic that include cards from Jack to Aces (low value), various insects, watches, motor cars, Snow, Sable, different wilds and glasses. The RTP or average return percentage of the online slots is 96.1%.
Two Wilds (Snow & Sable) offer winning combinations when they substitute adjacent symbols except each other and the scatter. When both of them pitch together each value for them is calculated separately.
Based on what we’ve seen the wilds appear often yet the payouts are nothing to write home about which is really disappointing. When five Snow and Sabre wilds appear (individually) on a line at the maximum bet you’ll win 100x your stake. If 5 of them pitch together you’ll pocket 50x your stake. There’s a Stacked Wild feature where they appear stacked across the reels.
ActionOps Snow & Sable Free Spins
There is only bonus game and it is the Free Spins feature that’s played when 3, 4 or 5 Snow & Sable scatters appear. They trigger 10, 15 or 20 free spins plus the offer payouts to the tune of 2x, 10x to 100x your line bet. Reels 1 and 5 can be transformed into fully wild reels on each free spin, should another 2 or more scatters pop you’ll gain another 5 or 10 free spins. It’s possible to win an unlimited amount of free spins augmented by 2 fully wild reels making 5 of a kind winning combinations a reality.
ActionOps Snow & Sable slots is another hit and a miss from Microgaming, it looks like the vendor is more concerned about quantity over quality. With only a free spins feature in its bow and the possibility of 2 wild reels players can win an impressive $100,000 on a each free spin.
Base game wins are atrocious, playing this game is like trying to drive square pegs into round holes. Hopefully Microgaming will employ a bit more intelligence and add more exciting bonus features to its next release.
We recommend Book of Oz; it offers a bigger jackpot, better base game wins and a more lucrative free spins feature that’s easier to trigger (https://casinowhizz.com/slots/book-of-oz-slots-review/).
ActionOps Snow & Sable slots frequently asked questions
How would we rate the game?
On a scale of 1 to 10 give it a 4. The impression we get is that Microgaming is running out of ideas which explains why it keeps on teaming up with other companies to release new slot machines – the game lacks that spark and its mechanic is dull. You’re not only killing time but your bankroll as well.
Is the free spins feature easy to initiate?
The slots is volatile making it hard to trigger the free spins. If you suck it up the potential for big wins are there (cough, cough) and an unlimited amount of free spins can be won, not to mention two fully wild reels on each free spin.
