Monster Wins Come Out at Night in New Nightfall Slot
Yes, I know it’s Good Friday, and a slot focused on pagan iconography is a little counterintuitive but hear me out. We shared a special Easter post yesterday, and this one was next on the list. Plus, not everyone celebrates the day despite enjoying a delicious hot cross bun and a few chocolate Easter eggs.
The cat’s out of the bag
In a Push Gaming blog covering the release of Nightfall slot, the provider describes the game as “gothic-inspired” and “aesthetically eerie.” I mean, I can’t argue with that. But it’s interesting that they don’t touch on the obvious references to the occult. It is a step further than just gothic-inspired. It’s a look into the darkness where all the creatures and spirits lurk and linger.
Calling a duck, a duck aside, the slot looks great. All the slot’s symbols are beautifully illustrated, and subtle animation touches bring the slot to life. Its backdrop is a rooftop view of a gothic cityscape during the witching hour, although that last detail is never explicitly stated.
What lurks in the shadows wants out!
Hunting bonus features can often feel like you’re chasing Big Foot or the Loch Ness Monster. However, in Nightfall slot, you feel as if the bonus features are banging on the door trying to get in.
During the base game, all symbols involved in winning combinations will disappear, and new symbols will drop into the vacant spaces to complete additional wins. It is not strictly a bonus feature, but it gives you the chance to win several times on a single spin.
At the top of the reels, you will see the instant win bar. If you manage to hit any of the blocks with three fireball symbols, that instant prize amount will go straight into your balance. The blocks can be just one reel long or can extend over multiple reels giving you a better chance of cracking the vault and scoring the instant prize. Any damage to the blocks is reset with every spin.
The instant win bar gets an upgrade during free spins. To unlock a round of free spins, you’ll need to grab three or more scatter symbols. I’d tell you what the scatter symbols look like, but I really have no idea what it’s supposed to be. Maybe an elaborate cage door? Or a pendant? It really doesn’t matter because the symbols will release a purple mist that will be sucked up by a meter to the left of the reels.
Once you unlock a round of free spins, the reels will be cleared, and you can expect nothing but fireballs to appear on the reels. The fireballs can appear stacked three high unlocking an instant prize immediately. Plus, unlike the base game, the cracks in the blocks don’t reset with every spin giving even more chances to win!
If you’re not willing to wait for the sun to slip below the horizon, you can also buy a round of free spins. But beware, the demons of the night come out when darkness falls, and you might just find yourself spending more than you win.
Is Nightfall slot magical or malicious?
Now, is this the best way to spend a Good Friday? Well, that’s for you to answer. What I can say is that Nightfall slot offers fantastic graphics, unique and interesting bonus features, and a max payout that’s more than substantial enough to warrant the chase.
There is one small demon lurking in the shadows, and that’s high volatility. So, you may be waiting a little longer than you’d like between wins. However, with a 96.36% RTP rating and a surprisingly small max bet of €12.50, you won’t have to worry too much about your balance when you’re chasing that €250,000 max win.
