Where to play?
Renegades by NextGen Gaming is a 243 ways to win, 5 reel medium to high variance video slot with a RTP (Average Return to Player Percentage) of 97.37%. The total cash prize that can be won on a single spin is a non-progressive jackpot of 60,750 coins.
It is jacked up with wilds, mega symbols and a free spins feature that awards up to 16 free spins with a randomly selected Renegade. The theme of the slots is based on 5 different Renegades that spans different generations – we’ll discuss each one further on in this review.
The graphics and animations are sharp, one can clearly see that NextGen added a bit of elbow grease when they designed the slots. The five main characters or Renegades are Freya (Valkyrie of Valhalla), Harriet (Hellstorm), Ivy (Sabreclaw), Valda (Dragonslayer) and Raffaela (Blaze).
Symbols on the reels are the wild (fire), ice scatters, different Renegades and coloured jewels. The fire wild symbol offers the biggest payout, 5 of them on the reels at the max bet per spin pays 250 coins. It substitutes symbols adjacent (wild) to it when it forms a winning combination except for the ice scatters.
Freya Valkyrie of Valhalla: Is she a descendant of Odin? No one knows for sure, she’s the queen with ice in her veins and conquered many lands. She’s also known to rule her subjects with the tip of her sword.”
Harriet Hellstorm: She’s the warrior who rules the skies and a highly decorated Major in the Air Force. This lady is known by her peers and foes as the ‘angel of death’.
Valda The Dragonslayer: “Champion of justice and a noble knight. Her grace and beauty matches her ferociousness in battle.”
Raffaella Blaze: “Is a rebel and true revolutionist. The only thing that can match her beauty is her gunslinger’s marksmanship skills.”
Ivy Sabreclaw: “She can summon the most terrifying beasts of the forest to aid her in battle, the guardian of her people and of the woodlands. The ‘princess of the Earth’ is no walkover underestimate her at your own peril.”
We tested it with a bankroll of £20 just to see if the game mechanic lives up to our expectations, all we can say it did. The bankroll we used to play Renegades slots is way to small to unlock its true paying potential, a budget of at least £300 would suffice. Due to the volatility of Renegades it takes around 100 plus spins to trigger the free spins feature.
Renegades Mega Symbols appear randomly on every spin with 2 or 3 adjacent reels being locked, the mega symbols can be 3 symbols high across 3 reel sets! When this occurs the payouts can be huge.
Renegade Free Spins
The Renegade free spins feature is triggered when 3 or more ice scatters appear during the base game. Scatter pays are offered it depends however on how many scatters pitch. For instance 3, 4 or 5 scatters pays anything from 2x to 10x your stake. It’s a re-triggerable free spins bonus meaning that when another 3 scatters or more appear extra free spins will be awarded, up to 16 free spins can be won.
Each reel set during the free spins contains one Renegade as a wild, scatter and jewel symbols. For example, should Freya pitch (highest value symbol), you’ll receive a payout of 759x your stake on each free spin. Payouts during the main and free spins are well balanced.
In terms of visual animations Renegade is the jewel in Renegade’s crown, it appeals both to male and female players. The free spins feature is rather difficult to trigger which is understandable because it’s a volatile slots. Base game wins are good and the Mega Symbols feature is worth a shout or two.
