About Conan Video Slot (NetEnt)
Conan game has been one of the most anticipated games since it was announced at the iGaming conference held in London in 2019. The Conan slot captures the apocalyptic tone of the author's universe, and it is seen in the pseudo-historical ‘Hyborian Age' of Conan the Barbarian. This game makes use of 3 reels with three rows and 24 paylines along with a Pay-Both-Ways mechanic.
Features of Conan Video Slot
Conan Video Slot reel set has three sections that have the size of 2×4 each, and these reels are connected to a distinct feature that comes into play on the appearance of the respective symbols on each section. The Conan Video Slot offers the following features:
- Battle Wilds (found on reels 5 and 6): Appearance of a red battle wild on the fifth and sixth reels expands to the adjacent reels up to 3 positions laterally.
- Tower Wilds (found on reel 1 and 2): Appearance of the blue tower will on either the first or second reels expands to cover the reel either partly or wholly. Landing mystery symbols on the third and fourth reels transform it into random matching symbols. The appearance of fully stacked mystery symbols triggers the feature “Mystery Multiplier”. After this, the Conan will come together to battle against a giant snake and each blow of the Conan on the snake increase the multiplier by 1x. This feature awards a minimum multiplier of 3x and a minimum multiplier of 7x. In addition to this, the appearance of a mystery symbol with a battle wild and a tower wild brings the Thoth-Amon feature into play. When the Thoth-Amon feature is activated, around 3 to 6 mystery symbols will be added randomly on the 2nd and 5th reels for higher wins.
- Mystery Symbols (found on reels 3 and 4): This feature is the most volatile out of all options of this game, and it has the highest potential of winning. The Conan Slot game also has Twin Spin added to it. The reels pairs in each 2×4 sections might light up randomly on any spin in the main game to show an indication of the Linked Reels activeness. Then, the 2 reels will produce matching symbol arrangements, this helps increase your chance of obtaining winning combinations. This feature has the potential of producing 6 linked reels in the free spins.
Also, there is free spin feature. Scatter symbols that is found at any place on the reels reward you 10, 15, 25, or 50 free spins, respectively. Then, you will be required to select any of the modes given below for you to proceed with the game. These modes are;
- Walls of Tarantia Free Spins: This is a medium variance mode; here, battle wilds appear in all reels, which expands to about three positions sideways.
- City of Thieves Free Spins: This is also a medium variance mode; here, you get to benefit from tower wilds, which may appear on any reel, and it expands to either cover the reels partly or wholly.
- Temple of the Serpent Free Spins: This option is a bit volatile out of the three options. In this option, the mystery symbols, stacks inclusive may land on each of the reels. Just like what is in the base game, the mystery multiplier is activated by a fully stacked mystery symbol and this rewards you with up to 7x multiplier. The Thoth-Amon feature will be activated when you land between 5 and 9 mystery symbols.
The Verdict of Conan Video Slot (NetEnt)
NetEnt have messed a lot with this game in their process of trying to make Coma a better slot and this now leaves this slot with nothing but a game with a lack of narrativity and personality. This features that seems abundant were made to look useless because they lack rewarding ability of nice wins and the payouts is minimal. The worst thing about this slot is that it has a shallow bonus frequency because a large chunk of the RTP will be allocated to each of the features. The potential win is not also impressive, the slot has a maximum win of 2016x in the base game and the Mystery Symbol free spins feature.
