Arcane Reel Chaos Slot Machine
Try NetEnt Slots
NetEnt has released a new superheroes-vs-villains--themed slot, called Arcane Reel Chaos. Contrary to its cartoon-inspired Wild Worlds slot, Arcane Reel Chaos offers a darker, more grown-up and action-packed superhero narrative filled with features that will provide you with the ultimate casino gaming.
The Wild in the slot substitutes for all symbols on the reels in the winning combo creation but does not substitute for the Scatters.
The coolest thing in the slot is that at any point during the base game, one of the superheroes can randomly appear and reward you with its superpowers. Therefore, you get 4 special features in the base game. Chrono comes with a Respin superpower and appears after a non-winning spin. This is when the reels respin until you get a winning combo, increasing the Multiplier from 1 to 10x with each respin. Flare comes with a Multiplier superpower, boosting your wins by 3x, 4x or 5x. Zero.x’s superpower is giving you Overlay Wilds, meaning 3 to 5 Wilds added randomly on the reels. Psyop comes packed with Stacked Wilds, meaning you can get 2 or 3 fully Stacked Wilds on the reels.
If you thought that you won’t be actually fighting the Deep Pockets villain, you were deadly wrong. The battle starts during the Free Spins. You trigger them with 3 Scatters on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reel. You’ll need to fight Deep Pockets in up to 4 levels. On Level 1, he has 2 health points and comes with a 1x Multiplier. On Level 2, he has 4 health points and a 2x Multiplier, while on Level 3 he has 5 health points and a 3x Multiplier. On the final level, Deep Pockets has 6 health points and a 4x Multiplier, and if you pass this level, you collect the ultimate prize, the Victory Bonus!
Theme & Design
Arcane Reel Chaos has a new, modern interface, where you can notice NetEnt’s exceptional visual design. The plot takes place in an old cathedral, and the dim, dark lights set a really creepy tone to the slot.
On the reels, you see the playing card Royals for the lowest-paying symbols, and for the highest-paying ones, you see the superheroes Chronos, Zero.x, Flare and Psyop. The villain Deep Pockets is the highest-paying of them all, giving you 50x the stake for the best combo.
Wagering & Paylines
There are 20 paylines in Arcane Reel Chaos, and as you might’ve expected, a betting range that goes from $0.20 to $200.00. NetEnt has decided to offer a little bit of an increased RTP of 96.81%, which comes as a pleasant surprise. What also comes as a welcome change is that the developer has decided to display the payouts in their actual cash value in accordance with the current bet, something that is rarely if ever, offered in other NetEnt slots.
Deep Pockets, the highest-paying symbol, gives you 50x the stake, meaning for the max bet can give you $10,000.00. With the Multiplier during the Free Spins that can go up to 4x and up to 10x during the Respins provided by Chrono’s feature, the game can offer a maximum payout of 1,212.5x the stake, which for the max bet means $242,500.00. This is a rather great payout potential, even though not the highest one that NetEnt has offered so far.
For a slot with such a powerful story and gameplay, we must admit that Arcane Reel Chaos has disappointed us with the overall win potential. The 1,212.5x the stake potential is a great one, but not as we would expect for a game for whose design, clearly, NetEnt has invested a lot of time and effort. We expected a much higher payout potential, but then again, it’s all up to taste. If you think that you’d be satisfied hitting that kind of a payout, you should definitely try out the game because visually, it is a real masterpiece and you will absolutely enjoy it. The gameplay is highly engaging and very interesting. But if you are in for some life-changing sums, we’re sad to inform you that you won’t be getting those playing this casino game.
