Magic Awaits in the Redrose Sanctuary Bonus Buy Slot
You see a pale woman in black clothes in a creepy mansion, and you think vampire, right? Well, what if I threw in the phrase “secret garden”? Sounds a bit like an adult movie now, doesn’t it? That’s all to say that I’m not really sure what theme Evoplay is going for with Redrose Sanctuary Bonus Buy slot, and I’m not sure I really care. The slot is beautiful, and I’m ready to start spinning those reels regardless of what theme the slot is targeting.
Welcome to the sanctuary
Redrose Sanctuary Bonus Buy slot is the “sequel” of Redrose Sanctuary slot which was released in October 2022. The two slots are virtually identical in their appearance except for the bonus buy button in the newer version. The slot offers 20 paylines over a 5×3-reel slot format.
In the base game, special glowing orbs will appear on the reels. Once they do, the spot on which they land will be bewitched with a glowing red border appearing around the position. A countdown from 10 will then begin. Over the next ten spins, you will try to collect additional glowing orbs which will bewitch additional positions on the reels. If a glowing orb appears on a position that is already bewitched, it will add a 1x multiplier to an accumulating global multiplier. After the 10 spins, all the symbols appearing on bewitched positions will be transformed into wilds to complete winning combinations. The global multiplier will be applied to any winnings before the whole mechanic is reset.
A round of the slot’s free spins feature is triggered with three or more scatter symbols which only appear on reels one, three, and five. During a round of free spins, the glowing orbs will not bewitch the position on which they land but rather immediately transform into sticky wilds that will remain on the reels for the duration of your round of free spins. The win multiplier that was activate in the base game when you triggered your round of free spins will be carried over and applied to every win.
If you’re not keen on waiting around to get bitten, you can select to purchase a round of the slot’s free spins feature. The slot’s buy bonus feature allows you to purchase a round of 10 free spins with a 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x win multiplier.
Is Redrose Sanctuary Bonus Buy slot the best release of 2023?
Redrose Sanctuary Bonus Buy slot is more or less a carbon copy of its predecessor apart from, as the name suggests, the extensive bonus buy feature. The volatility, max multiplier, max win, RTP, and min and max bet levels are also slightly different, for the record. Both slots are extremely beautiful with an amazing amount of care being put into the illustration and animation. In particular, the shift in perspective that occurs when you unlock a round of free spins blew my mind. It gave the slot this sense of a real-world existence that I don’t think I’ve ever experienced. The bonus features are also great with the implementation of the special symbol in the base game possibly being the most beautiful bonus feature mechanic I have ever seen. The bonus buy feature is just the icing on the cake. Redrose Sanctuary Bonus Buy slot is, without a doubt, my favorite slot of 2023 and possibly even of all time.
The slot does have high volatility, meaning that if you don’t use that buy bonus feature, you’ll have to wait longer than you’d like between wins. The slot does have a potential max win of €330,600 but because of the 4,408x max multiplier, you’ll need to be betting at €75 a spin to play for it. However, if you’re happiest betting at the €0.10 minimum, you’ll get some great entertainment out of this one and you’ll still have a chance to win enough for a great steak dinner. The slot has a 96.08% RTP rating.
If you’re looking for a few other Evoplay slots, I recommend giving the mysterious Wheel of Time or the magical Forgotten Fable a try.
