Yggdrasil is back with a brand new online slot and, although it carries the unoriginal ancient Egyptian theme, you know it should have something highly appealing hailing from the red hot stable of the Malta based software studio. However, we all know Yggdrasil can put a visually beautiful slot together at the click of their fingers, but how does Tut’s Twister online slot fare when it comes to bonus features and base game payouts? Join PartyCasino as we excavate this spinning spectacle.
When you watch the intro video you’ll be blown away by the high quality graphics. You might be mistaken for believing that you’re playing on a gaming console. The game is quite interactive, as an aggressive mummy lurks to the left of the screen and will get involved in the game play at certain points. You’ll also see hieroglyphics above the 5 reels, while the scene is set in an underground treasure cave. The name of the game is relevant due to the mummy swooping onto the reels in tornado style from time to time, which signals rewards.
It’s not all just top of the range production values. The specifications of Tut’s Twister are really impressive, reaching the levels of the most generous titles out there. The return to player ratio is 97.1%, and the most anyone will win in the base game is £16,250.00. All very respectable. To reach this maximum payout the wager needs to be highest amount possible of £125 per spin. The lowest amount you’ll be able to wager is £0.10, so there’s no pressure in the stakes department.
The one thing about a game of such high graphical quality is that there could be some lag when playing in browser, but you’ll find it seamless on download versions, especially on mobile.
The symbols are very easy to tell apart. Yggdrasil have used playing card suits diamonds, clubs, aces and hearts as the lower paying symbols. All pay out well for lower paying symbols if 5 are lined up across the reels, but the heart will pay the most at 35x your bet value. The higher paying symbols are all items associated with ancient Egypt. They start with a scroll which has the potential to pay 100x your bet, a gold ring at 110x, an Egyptian bird symbol at 120x and a bowl of jewellery at 130x your bet.
You’ll find wild symbols falling on the reels, which usually triggers some reaction in the game. The wild is Tut himself, and provides plenty of action.
Bonuses and Jackpots
Yggdrasil never make their bonus features too easy to understand, as they like to use a unique feature in almost every game. Wild symbols play an important role in Tut’s Twister as they substitute all symbols to create winning paylines and also open bonus features.
The Twister feature is where the big wins come. If you land 2 wilds on the same spin the feature is then activated. The first reel will be occupied by a full length Tut twister, acting as a stacked wild. You will then be given a certain amount of respins, which will all have a multiplier attached. The more wilds that activate the Twister the higher the multiplier will be.
The wilds during the Twister turn into walking wilds, and will walk towards the Twister until sucked in. When this happens you are provided with more respins and a higher multiplier. You’ll see to the right of the reels how powerful your respin value is by the wild meter. Once this feature ends all the wilds will be thrown back onto the reels to award one last payout.
If anyone happens to land one wild on a spin it could reward a random prize; an extra wild to trigger the Twister, 25 – 2500 coins, no reward or a hieroglyphic symbol. If you get a symbol it will be stored above the reel that the wild fell on. The point is to collect all the symbols allocated for that specific reel, and once all are collected it will trigger the Twister on that reel.

One cannot fault the efforts of Yggdrasil, as the visuals are truly outstanding, while all the base features are right up there with the best. The game does seem to fall a little short at the bonus feature, mostly because there are online slots on the market that have more appealing bonus features that would appear to be higher paying. Although the Twister is exciting and interactive it doesn’t pack as much of a punch as one might like. However, that is not to say the bonus feature is ineffective, it just takes some getting used to. So walk towards Tut’s Twister, you might find it easy to get sucked in.
