Avatars: Gateway Guardians Slot
Forgoing a traditional rectangle or square-shaped set of reels, Yggdrasil opted for a circular stone wheel with 3 tiers which spin separately. For the theme, they married an ancient Greek aesthetic with Sci-Fi futurism which was a bold choice, but it definitely works. The main attraction is the Hot Spot bonus feature, although you’ll find the free spin feature incredibly rewarding too. You may want to give Avatars: Gateway Guardians a demo run, as it does work a little differently to a standard set of reels. Instead of reels, you’ll get segments and each segment has 3 tiers. For a winning combination, you’ll need to catch 3 matching symbols in one of the segments. On every spin, a segment will be selected by the Hot Spot feature, if you create a winning combination in the highlighted segment, you will be treated to a multiplier off the multiplier wheel. In the main mode of play, the biggest wins will come via winning combinations made up of the red guardian symbol. You’ll win 40x your stake every time you find 3 symbols in the same segment. One slight drawback to spinning Avatars: Gateway Guardians is the fairly weak math model which offers a max fixed jackpot of 2,525x combined with a high volatility. However, Yggdrasil chose to be slightly generous with the return to player rate which comes in at 96.3%
Avatars: Gateway Guardians Bonus Features
Hot Spot Bonus Feature
Avatars: Gateway Guardians simply wouldn’t be the same slot without the Hot Spot feature which can trigger on every spin, the multiplier wheel which the Hot Spot feature activates can offer multipliers as high as 101x.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
Three or more scatter symbols will trigger the free spins and award eight bonus games. Which tier in the segment the scatter landed in will determine how fun the free spins feature is. You can get up to 8 active hot spots during the free spins, which means that your chances of creating a winning combo which gets boosted by a multiplier increases exponentially. Therefore, you’ll have the best chances to win the max jackpot while the free spins feature is in play.
