NetEnt’s Historic Games
Published on by Adam
When designing new video slots, providers tend to draw inspiration from almost anything. We’ve seen adaptations of movies, comic books, literature, horror icons, myths, cartoons, and the list just goes on and on. However, one category of themes that always finds a niche of fans is world history. Besides being so vast and rich, it’s also one of the most popular. And NetEnt continues adding more titles whose theme and style play on some of the most remarkable chapters in history. In this article, we’ll reveal a few of the fan favourites.
Muse – Wild Inspiration
In one of the traditions of Greek Mythology, it is said that the muses were 3 goddesses, usually invoked by artists, scientists, philosophers, etc. to grant the latter inspiration when composing their work. This English derivation has survived till today. It can either mean to ponder something carefully or, more closely to the original meaning, it can be an imaginary force or being that inspires art.
In NetEnt’s tribute to the muses – Muse, Wild Inspiration – the 3 muses all have their own wilds that inspire the player to win in different ways. The game consists of a 5 reel, 3 row video slot with 25 fixed bet lines.
The muses can reveal any of the following wilds during play – inspiration wilds, sticky wilds, expanding wilds, multiplying x2 wilds, scatters, free spin mode and combined wilds, sticky x2 wilds, expanding x2 wilds, sticky expanding wilds.
Just by looking at the winning permutations and the amount of winnings/bonuses in this game, it’s safe to say that the muses are surely generous in this one. So much so that this game has a theoretic payout of 97.0%.
Victorious is a take on the Roman Empire – the empire with the longest reign in world history, known for its military prowess and political vision. And Victorious attempts to recreate this powerful atmosphere with armour, marble, gold, elaborately decorated columns, and powerful music that elicit the feeling of being on the battlefield.
This 5 reel, 3 row slot offers you 243 winning ways that are unalterable. This is where this game differs slightly from some others as the it gives up the idea of winning lines for winning ways.
In-game bonuses include Wild Symbols and Free Spins Symbols. Wild symbols replace any other symbols in the game, and they garner you bigger chances for wins. There are also free spins symbols. When you get 3 or more across, you get free spins that increase according to the number of symbols appearing. During this time, even more free spins can be won.
Pyramid: Quest for Immortality
It’s hard to talk about famous historical epochs without mentioning the ancient Egyptian chapter with its groundbreaking scientific discoveries, curious architecture, and its mysterious mythology. Pyramid: Quest for Immortality borrows this theme and sets the game inside a pyramid with 2 gods – Anubis and Horus – overlooking your actions. Symbols are depicted on limestone blocks that recreate the feeling of being inside a pyramid. One more touch that helps set the mood is the exotic and mysterious music.
This video slot has 5 reels made up of columns with 3-4-5-4-3 blocks. There are 720 ways to win, which. Like Victorious, does away with the winning lines strategy altogether.
This slot features The Avalanche Feature, which means that the symbols are tumbling blocks. When a winning combination appears, those symbols explode and more symbols fall like in an avalanche, and this continues until there are no more winning combinations on screen.
Bonus features that appear in Pyramid are Wild Symbols, Wild Generation, and The Avalanche Multiplier. Wild Symbols combine to give high paying combinations. Wild Generation happens when any of the symbols in the top positions of the reels 2, 3, and/or 4 are part of a winning combination, they change into wilds and stay like that for as long as a winning streak continues. The Avalanche Multiplier happens when you get a 3-wins streak. The winnings will increase by x1. This can occur repeatedly until wins are multiplied x10.
If there are any history buffs out there who also enjoy online casinos, the games we covered are a few amongst an attractive selection of games whose themes are based on history and ancient culture. So, if that’s your cup of tea, why not take these timeless classics for few spins?
