Wild Phoenix Rises Slot Review
John Travolta was an absolute superstar in the Seventies. He followed up his incredible success with Grease and Saturday Night Fever with some absolute howlers that kicked his career in the cojones. ⚽️⚽️
He found success with Look Who’s Talking – a movie about talking babies 🤢😣 and only saw his career resurface when Quentin Tarantino cast him in the infamous Pulp Fiction. So what’s the moral of the story?
No, it’s not that shooting up illicit substances and earning a salary as a hitman is cool. It’s that resurgences can be good for the old bank account. And nothing symbolizes rising from the ashes better than the mythical creature in our next game, Wild Phoenix Rises slot from Mascot. 🔥
If you’re into online games with a medieval/magical theme then Wild Phoenix Rises slot might be your kinda thing. When you first fire the game, it hits the old eyeballs with a one-two combination.
The glowing phoenix is flapping next to the 5-reel grid that’s made up of individual squares; rather than a bunch of symbols on reels. The Free Spins meter is to the right of the reels, but more on that later.
As for the mobile version of this game, it looks… wild! It has even more of a PlayStation/Xbox vibe on a mobile phone and it looks absolutely incredible. Things get a bit busy in portrait mode but that’s nothing a little landscape action won’t fix.
You can play with any currency on this 25-payline, medium-to-high volatility game. Other stats include the 95.37% RTP, the 5,500x max multiplier, and a €247,500 top prize that’s rather generous given the volatility rating.
The Wild replaces all symbols that aren’t Scatters, and the latter pays out when 2 of more Scatters land anywhere on the reels.
Remember that meter I mentioned? Mascot calls this an accumulation scale and it’s used to determine how many spins you’ll get. This is how it works: each winning spin fills a bar on the meter while a losing spin resets what you’ve accumulated.
Fill up 5 of these bars and you’ll trigger the Free Spins round. You’ll get 3 spins for the first level; 3 spins plus a 3x multiplier come next; then 4 spins with a 3x multiplier; 4 spins with a 5x multiplier; 5 spins with a 5x multiplier; and lastly 5 spins with a 10x multiplier.
During the Free Spins round, each winning spin resets the counter to its original value. You’ll also see multipliers with values of up to 10x.
You can buy any of a couple of options; check it out:
- Option 1: 27x your bet gets you 3 Free Spins plus 1 multiplier (1x)
- Option 2: 79x gets you 3 Free Spins plus 3 multipliers (3x)
- Option 3: 105x gets you 4 Free Spins plus 3 multipliers (3x)
After a win, you’ll be offered the chance to play the Risk Game with your winnings. If you go for it, you’ll see a Wheel of Fortune made up of 3 rings that spin in different directions with multiplier values placed in random positions.
The Risk Game is where you can win multipliers adding up to 5,000x so it sure is tempting! If you land on a multiplier, that’s what you’re awarded. Now you can choose to collect your moolah or risk it all again.
The Wheel nudges, so if you don’t land perfectly on a multiplier wedge, but rather just next to it, the Wheel will nudge you onto the wedge, but it can also nudge you away.
There’s also the possibility of landing on a green arrow that’ll take you to the next circle within the Wheel of Fortune where multipliers of larger values are waiting. In the smallest circle, there’s also a symbol that lets you change direction like in Uno.
I had this weird glitch on Safari – the info page and certain elements weren’t scrolling. For example, I clicked on the Buy Bonus and couldn’t scroll down to the other options; only the top two were accessible but it came right after a while. Weird.
Wild Phoenix Rises slot can pay out a top prize of €247,500 if you snag the 5,500x multiplier at a maximum bet of €45 (or just bet from €0.25 if you prefer).
I enjoyed the package offered by Wild Phoenix Rises slot. The mobile experience is sweet, the graphics and theme rock, and the whole Free Spins meter and Risk Game combo are a refreshing combination.
Add to that a Buy Bonus with a few generally well-priced options, and you’ve got a solid game aimed squarely at Free Spin lovers.
