NetEnt Releases Conan Slot
NetEnt is no stranger to developing online slot games based on big names, bands and brands. The company has previously given us titles based on movies, TV shows and musicians, with Narcos, Planet of the Apes and Guns n’ Roses being just a few examples of those, and now it has brought the world’s most famous barbarian to the reels with a new Conan video slot. The new game is as big as the character on which it is based, and boasts multiple exciting features that are sure to have you feeling like a Cimmerian warrior in no time.
From the moment you launch this game, you will be in no doubt that it is something special. The opening cinematic sequence is stunning, and sets the scene nicely for the action ahead. The game has six reels and four rows, and takes place against beautifully rendered backdrops which accurately portray the world of Conan as originally described in the world-famous stories penned by the character’s creator, Robert E. Howard.
The symbols used in this game include several lower-value tokens, a sword, a helmet, a grappling hook, a scatter and several characters from the adventure series, including Conan himself. All images are presented in the mature style of a graphic novel and are true to the stories, so you won’t find any playing card ranks or similar generic symbols anywhere, which is nice.
A cinematic soundtrack accompanies the gaming action, and there are plenty of exquisite audio effects to enjoy as you rack up wins and trigger any of the many special features.
Four Main Game Features
There are four features which can be triggered at random during the main game:
Tower Wilds can appear on the first and second reels, and when they do so they will expand vertically to serve as wilds, substituting for any symbol except the scatter.
Mystery Symbols can appear on the third and fourth reels in single or stacked formation, and will be transformed into a randomly selected symbol to help you improve your chances of achieving a winning combination.
Battle Wilds are symbols which can appear on the fifth and sixth reels, and will expand sideways along the row up to three places to serve as wilds.
Thoth-Amon can add random Mystery Symbols to the reels (as many as six, in fact) as well as multiply wins by as much as seven times.
Three Free Spins Features
Whilst there is plenty in the main game to enjoy, things get even more exciting when you trigger the Free Spins round by getting three or more scatter symbols on the reels. The more scatter symbols you get to trigger this feature, the more free spins you will earn, with a minimum of 10 free spins awarded for three scatter symbols and as many as 50 free spins available for a full set of six scatter symbols.
You will then be given the choice of three different free spins features, as follows:
Temple of the Serpent Free Spins is described as being of medium to high volatility, and if a Thoth-Amon feature is activated at any point, extra Mystery Symbols will be added to the reels and can also multiply your winnings.
City of Thieves Free Spins is described as being of low to medium volatility, and in this mode it is possible for Tower Wilds to appear on all reels as well as expand vertically in both directions to cover reels either partially or completely.
Walls of Tarantia Free Spins is another low to medium volatility option. In this mode it is possible for Battle Wilds to appear on all reels and expand sideways as detailed earlier.
An Incredibly Playable Game
‘With a globally loved brand and legendary central character, Conan is a perfect addition to the NetEnt portfolio of licensed titles,’ said Bryan Upton, who is Director of Games at NetEnt. ‘We’ve stayed true to everything that has made Conan so popular over the last 50 years and added some true NetEnt touches and terrific twists that make Conan Video Slot an incredibly playable game with a range of fantastic features.’
