It’s time to wander through some more reels, and this time we’re heading to an oil rig to join forces with a rough bunch responsible for making the reels work for you like a well-oiled machine. Nitropolis a theme-rich slot that has a very original look and feel while also adding features to ensure players get a sense of added value. Among these that we’ll be looking at are free spins, respins and more to give you an indication of just how packed with winning chances Nitropolis really is.
To give you a detailed description of what’s going on in the look and feel of Nitropolis, we follow four crew members working in what looks like the oil industry. This crew certainly looks tough as nails and consists of a rat, a pug, a cat, and a Doberman. The illustrations aren’t too bad, although perhaps a little bit erratic. ELK Studios – known for the recent hit The Grand Galore – is the casino software studio that created the title, and on originality alone, it is up there with the top online slot games. A sizable 4,096 paylines have been applied to 6 reels for a bigger reel set. However, this doesn’t always translate into easier winning opportunities. Keep to a sensible strategy as the reels come with a higher volatility than what you would usually get.
The slot says that players can win up to £1,000,000! For a payout this big, you’d usually have to go and find a progressive jackpot, so for a regular play jackpot, that’s among the best you’ll see. The highest wager you can place is £100 per spin, so if you love a good wagering thrill, this should get the adrenaline going. Players going for smaller, consistent wins can start the wagering as low as 20p. However, to win some good returns, you might want to wager in higher areas than that. Playing online slot machines is about winning some cash, after all.
Our burly gang of mechanics are certainly included in the symbols department – we would hate you to have been disappointed there. They make up the medium paying icons, and in ascending order of value, it goes rat, pug, cat and Doberman as the highest paying bruiser. There are also the lower value symbols that, while not carrying too much clout, will keep the wins coming. These are playing card royals J, Q, K and A, as well as four more symbols saying Rogue Rat, Pug Thug, Gritty Kitty and Dirty Dawgs.
There’s a wild symbol in Nitropolis, represented by the nuclear explosion. It’ll substitute all regular icons to create a winning line. It won’t be able to substitute the Bonus symbol, which is a symbol we’ll explain next.
There’s quite a bit to get through here, so let’s start with the free spins. It’s very straightforward, as landing three or more Bonus symbols on the same spin will award you ten free spins. These can be re-triggered by landing three or more scatters during the bonus.
You see, the slot also has what is called Nitro Reels, and these randomly occur to create more ways to win across the reels. The Nitro Reels can also randomly upgrade during the free spins as well as lock in place for the duration of the free spins.
Should you land a win, then all the symbols or Nitro Reels will respin individually to potentially land you another win. The respins keep happening as long as wins keep dropping. Nitro Reels might even respin at random if you haven’t actually landed a win.
There’s so much going on in Nitropolis to keep you interested with all the bonus features. Along with all of the above, there’s also the maximum win amount of £1million, which is almost on the level of progressive. In our books, this one ranks up there with the best online slot games today, although one thing we would change would be the high maximum bet amount.
