Arcane: Reel Chaos Slot Review
Our city is in great danger. The notorious Deep Pockets wants to take over the control, but our four heroes are here to stop him. Psyop will use his powers to add Stacked Wilds, Flare will add multipliers, Chrono is here to help you turn a non-winning spin into a winning one with respins and increasing multipliers, while Zero.X adds adding up to 5 overlay Wilds. The biggest action in the 5-reel, 20-payline video slot starts during the Free Spins feature, when the heroes of NetEnt’s Arcane: Reel Chaos begin the battle against the villain, through four different stages. Win in the final stage to get extra wins.
The moment you start playing the 2019 release, you will find yourselves in the middle of the action, with police cars driving around, and bandits shooting from their guns. The main villain is Deep Pockets and four heroes are here to stop him: Flare, Zero.X, Chrono and Psyop. These are the high-paying symbols of the NetEnt product. Playing cards are used for low-paying ones. The Wild will substitute for all regular symbols. You will notice a Locket around Deep Pockets’ neck, with a Snake surrounding it. The Locket is actually a Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature.
Arcane: Reel Chaos is packed with features, most of them triggered randomly and it may seem that the 2019 release is quite complicated for playing, but, after a couple of spins, you will understand how everything functions around here. The NetEnt title features five reels, three rows and benefits from 20 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Betting starts at £0.20 per spin, while the biggest bet cannot go over £200. The control panel offers all the usual options.
There are four random features that can be triggered during the base game. Psyop’s Stacked Wilds will be added to the reels. Two or three reels will become Wild. Zero.X’s Overlay Wilds feature adds 3-5 overlay Wilds to the reels. If Flare appears during a spin, a 3x, 4x, or 5x multiplier is added to the bet line wins, thanks to the Flare’s Multiplier. Finally, Chrono’s Re-Spins are randomly triggered after a non-winning spin. Re-spins continue until a winning spin occurs. Also, there is the increasing multiplier that rises after every non-winning re-spin and can reach up to 10x.
Land three Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger the Free Spins feature. This is where the battle begins and our heroes try to defeat Deep Pockets, who has 2 health points and 1x multiplier in the 1st stage, 4 health points and a 2x multiplier in the 2nd stage, 5 health points and a 3x multiplier in stage 3 and in stage 4, Deep Pocket has 6 health points and a 4x multiplier. Defeat the villain and go through all 4 stages to get the Victory Bonus.
The biggest possible win in the 2019 release is set at 10,000 times the bet, which is not that bad, if you are prepared to fight against criminals. Sadly, crime does pay out in the NetEnt title, because Deep Pockets is the symbol that pays the most, offering 50 times the bet for five of a kind. Trigger the Free Spins feature for huge wins. Arcane: Reel Chaos’ RTP is 96.81%.
Arcane: Reel Chaos on Mobile
The NeEnt product boasts very good visuals and offers a quality gameplay, which allows the reels to run as smoothly as possible on any device. This is why there is no difference whether you play Arcane: Reel Chaos on desktops or on handheld gadgets, the gaming experience is completely the same.
– Packed with features
– A popular theme
– Playable across all devices
– Heroes do not appear as often as we would have liked
– Not easy to go through all four levels in free spins
– A bit complicated video slot
This is probably the first time we will ever say that there are too many features in a video slot. It took us a while to understand how everything functions in the 2019 release and we were not happy with what we found out. Four random features are triggered during the base game, thanks to our four heroes, but we have to say that they do not appear as often as we expected. Also, once you trigger the Free Spins feature, our heroes will not defeat the enemy that easy, which really pissed us off on several occasions. All in all, we were not that impressed with the NetEnt title.
