Playtech has a special surprise in store for its players, with not one, but two new slots on the release radar! The software developer is known for creating games with huge payouts and not necessarily the best graphics or animation. Well, this time they’ve shrugged off the creative shackles and created two absolute gems on both fronts!
First of all there’s Satsumo’s Revenge, about an outfit of crime-fighting ninja fruit, led by the biggest, baddest snack of them all: Satsumo. It’s a pretty ridiculous concept, but the artistic design is superb and the payout impressive.
Second on the list is Solar Se7en which, despite being about extraterrestrial human-like life, is considerably less abstract than Satsumo. The design is cool, if relatively basic for 2018, but you can wager up to $500 per spin, and the wilds cause respins which quickly add up.
Both games are good fun with massive payout potential, so unless you’re only in it for the progressive jackpots, give ’em a try.
Playtech has done us a favour here by giving the same fundamentals to both games. You can wager between $0.25 – $500 per spin, and with a potential jackpot of 1,000 coins (800 for Solar Se7en) up for grabs, they aren’t for the faint hearted.
While both games are fundamentally similar, they aren’t identical in every aspect.
Satsumo and his gang of weapon-wielding fruit ninjas have 25 paylines to deal with, as well as a bunch of game-changing symbols:
- Dragon Wild – The standard wild for the game, can substitute for any other symbol except the scatter, to form winning combinations.
- Shuriken Wild – These are a bit more badass. If the Shuriken wild symbol appears on reel 5, the grandmaster will throw 1, 2 or 3 Shuriken symbols onto the reels. These cause full reels to become wild, massively enhancing the odds of winning.
- Fighting Free Games – If the berry symbol (scatter) appears on reels 1 and 5, it’s free game time. Two fighters appear at opposite ends of the reels, each with 5 lives.What happens is that you play rock, paper, scissors! Win, and gain a free spin and sticky wild; lose, and that’s one life gone! If you draw, you still get a free spin.
With the free games, a spin happens after each round of RPS. This means it’s beneficial to get some sticky wilds early, and then draw as many times as you can in a row!
Solar Se7en takes place up on a (presumably) colonised planet somewhere in the distant universe where the sky is green and humanoid creatures rule.
What really matters about this slot is that, at least while we tested it, you win frequently. There’s a superb rocket wild which induces 3 free spins (and the wild stays sticky) and almost always produces good results.
This “Supernova Spins” feature is definitely the highlight of the game, since the music and graphics are slightly underwhelming. That said, many slots players don’t really mind the story or design as long as it pays generously – and Solar Se7en certainly does that!
