Primal Bet Rockways Slot Review
Amber is like a time capsule. Scientists have discovered all sorts of prehistoric creatures trapped in petrified tree resin, so it’s no wonder that this phenomenon has been the inspiration for films such as Jurassic Park.
Unhappily, or possibly lucky for us, DNA isn’t preserved in the process so we won’t be bringing any T-Rexes to life just yet. We have, however, found some really strange sh*t lurking in the golden stuff.
One of the weirder things to be found in amber was a daddy longlegs (a relative of a spider) sporting a chubby. Oh yeah, this little insect was found with a “post-mortem erection” as the scientists so politely put it. Then there was the flea that was harboring a type of bacteria related to the Bubonic Plague!
But of course, we’re far more fascinated by dinosaurs than horny spider types, and it’s these beasties that feature in the latest offering from Mascot – Primal Bet Rockways slot.
Erm, so this ain’t the prettiest of games. The background of volcanoes and forests takes up a pretty large amount of space, so the grid kinda gets lost. Also, as it’s all darker, saturated colors, they tend to blend into one another.
Things get a bit better when viewing the game on a mobile device. In vertical format, the grid is positioned more against the sky, so that helps with the visibility issue. When viewed horizontally on a phone, it’s the same problem as on a desktop – the symbols are tiny and it’s just not a great experience.
Primal Bet Rockways slot offers up to 46,656 ways to win, with a top prize of €110,000. The RTP is okay and comes in at 95.2%, while the volatility is high. As for the multiplier, that’s 44,000x, and the bet limits are a paltry €0.25 to €2.50.
The element that gives us all these ways to win is the Rockfall feature. You know the drill: the winning symbols explode in a shower of rocks, only to be replaced by new ones. During the base game, each successful rockfall can see the multiplier boosted by up to 5x and up to 10x during the Free Spins round.
The Wild symbol – which is a volcano – appears on reels 2-6 during the base game and on reels 2, 4, and 6 in the Free Spins round. During Free Spins, each Wild expands to cover the reel it’s on and all symbols above and below it get removed.
Free Spins are allotted when you land 5 or more Scatters (these take the form of a mosquito trapped in amber), and you can get 3 more Free Spins with each additional Scatter landed. Alternatively, you can get Free Spins as part of the Risk feature.
This brings us neatly to… you guessed it, the Risk feature. You can either buy 15 Free Spins or take a chance and risk your winnings for them. This mechanism is offered as part of the base game after every spin, irrespective of whether you win or lose.
I was impressed by how quickly the symbols drop in normal mode, and turbo is naturally a bit faster still. It’s like lightning-fast spins no matter how you choose to play the game.
The max win is €110,000.
There’s good and bad happening in Primal Bet Rockways, but admittedly, the positives outweigh the negatives.
The good comprises the max win, the RTP which is OK, the volatility, the slick and quick gameplay, and the features.
What lets it down for me is the design. I don’t find it appealing and it’s a hard sell to convince myself to stare at these visuals for an extended period.
The fact that the volatility is high is offset by a just-squeaking-through-the-back-door RTP. It means I’ll probably be pumping money into the game as I chase those wins, and that would burn my nuts a little.
So it’s really up to you, auspicious player, in terms of what you’re looking for from a slot game. This could be up your alley, or you might even side with me and decide there are better options out there.
