Where to play?
Net Entertainment has always been at the pinnacle when it comes to its innovative slot machines. Its next release titled Arcane Reel Chaos with its 5 reels and 20 paylines sees a city besieged by a super villain (Deep Pockets) where the only thing standing between him and salvation is a mysterious group of mutants (Psyop, Zero.x, Flare and Chronos).
These days comic-books, movies and now superhero 3D slot machines dominate the scene and makes the player feel like they’re actually embodying those powers and responsibilities. Reading about their righteous actions is fun, but getting to control them as they fight the bad guys takes it up to the level of each Marvel movie’s final scene.
Arcane Reel Chaos pits you right in the action and allows you to become the superhero you are meant to be. As we delve into the mechanics of the 3D medium variance slots we find features such as Multi-Level Free Spins with multipliers of up to 4x, Overlay Wilds, Multiplying Re-spins, Stacked Wilds and Multipliers of up to 10x.
Playable on mobile devices (Androids, iOS, tablets) from £0.20 to £200 per spin and the jackpot (non-progressive) offered is 1212,5x your stake on a single spin. With a RTP of 96.81% it has a hit frequency of 34.76%. If you’re interested about knowing all the slots lingo we list it here.
An old ruined cathedral serves as backdrop for the reels while the symbols on them are the 4x mutants, the villain Deep Pockets, wild, cards from 10 to Ace (low value) and the snake scatters. The premium symbol is the evil dude Deep Pockets, and when 5 of them appear on the reels you’ll receive a payout of 50x your stake.
The wild completes adjacent symbols except the scatter when it forms a winning combination. The superheros can pitch on any random spin in the main game, each one has its own unique characteristics and payouts:
Psyop – Doles out 2x to 3x fully stacked wilds.
Zero.x – His unique trait are the overlay wilds rewarding 3 to 5 wilds.
Flare – She’s the beautiful redhead who boosts wins by multipliers that range from 3x, 4x, to 5x.
Chrono – Only pitches when there’s a non-winning spin and re-spins will occur until a winning combination is hit. The multiplier meter starts at 1x and with each winning spin it can shoot up to 10x.
As far as Deep Pocket goes, the Free Spins bonus is where you’ll meet him and it’s also the game’s central bonus. It is triggered by 3 scatters (reels 1, 3 and 5) and is an interesting Free Spins bonus because it plays out across 4 Levels:
Level 1 – With a 1x multiplier Deep Pockets (bad guy) has 2 health points.
Level 2 – The multiplier is 2x plus Deep Pockets has 4 health points.
Level 3 – The multiplier is 3x and Deep Pockets has 5 health points.
Level 4 – The multiplier is a cracking 4x Deep Pockets and 6 health points. Players who crack the nut, or in this case defeats Deep Pockets receives an extra prize dubbed the Victory Bonus.
Arcane Reel Chaos is an action-heavy slots with engaging bonus rounds which emphasises an elegance that only Net Entertainment can conjure up.
The payouts in the majority of the features is around 500x your stake while the Chrono re-spins pays the top cash prize of 1,212.5x. The aesthetic value and layered mechanics elevates it into something special. We also noted that it’s quite similar to South Park Reel Chaos.
Wins in the free spins could have been better though, especially the multiplier wins that only goes up to 4x. If you’re a slots purist looking for a game that bleeds Marvel, this really is the ultimate escape game for you.
