American Gods is a rather unique game by Playzido as it is packed with features that will make the gameplay extremely exciting. First of all, you will be pleased to know that this slot is powered by HTML5, meaning that you will be able to enjoy it on any mobile, tablet, or desktop device.
Once you access it, you will see that the grid contains five reels and three rows, but thanks to the features in the game, which will be explained further in this slot review, the grid can expand to 5x4 and 5x5. Before you can spin the reels in American Gods, you will have to set your bet, which can be as low as £2.00 and as high as £1,000.00.
First things first, let’s cover the featured symbols in American Gods. There are nine regular symbols in this game, and they are divided into low, mid and high-paying symbols. The low-paying symbols are J, Q, K, and A. J and Q have a maximum payout of 1x the stake, while K and A have a maximum payout of 1.25x the stake.
Moving on, the red, green and blue characters are the mid-paying symbols. The red character has a maximum payout of 1.5x the stake, the green character has a maximum payout of 2x the stake, which is the same as the blue character. Finally, the grey and orange characters are the high-paying symbols as they have a maximum payout of 4x and 5x the stake, respectively.
Special icon awards and a Wild symbol, which substitutes the aforementioned regular symbols are also available.
You will be pleased to know that American Gods has quite a lot of bonus features. First off, we have the Random Wilds feature in which a random number of positions turn into Buffalo Wilds. Then, we have Wild Reels in which all reels can be turned into Wilds. Reel Sync will synchronise 3-5 reels, and these reels will feature the same symbols.
After the spin stops, any high-paying symbol that lands will be transformed into the top symbol. Moving on, we have the Worshipper Bonus.
By landing at least 3 Sweeny’s Coin symbols, the Worshipper Bonus is triggered, and you will be provided with two options – Old Gods Free Spins and New Gods Free Spins. Old Gods Free Spins start with one spin on the Prize Wheel, containing all non-Wild symbols.
The symbol on which the wheel will stop becomes the Wild, and it will be added to the collection panel. If you land another Sweeny's Coin on the 5th reel, you will gain an additional spin on the Prize Wheel and two more free spins. On any winning spin, a multiplier that can be as high as 20X can be applied.
The New Gods Free Spins feature an Accumulating Multiplier. The Prize Wheel contains multipliers that can be as low as x2 and as high as x20. On any spin, up to 3 symbols can be turned into Wilds.
Finally, the Mega Bonus can also be randomly triggered in the base game, which is also a feature collection game, and if you manage to collect four coins, the grid expands to 5x5 and jumps to 40 paylines.
Old Gods Free Spins reward 10, 12, or 15 free spins, New Gods rewards 12, 15, or 20 free spins, which is the same as the Mega Bonus.
The numerous features in American Gods that can be triggered randomly in the base game are what make this slot by Playzido so dynamic and entertaining. The reels can expand from 5x3 to 5x5, and the number of paylines can jump from 20 to 40. Moreover, free spins and decent payouts are also available.
