Launched in 2018, Archangels: Salvation Slot from industry juggernaut NetEnt is the operator’s first to incorporate 100 Paylines across an impressive 6×12 layout.
This video slot is dominated by gorgeously done angel and demon images, shown to the left and right of your screen respectively, representing, of course, the enduring struggle between good and evil.
But this isn’t about taking sides – it’s all about the angel and demon hurling fireballs at each other!
Reels display as a lengthy strip of symbols down the centre of your screen. Additionally, Archangels: Salvation Slot features an exciting highlight in the form of two hotspot areas. Any 2×2 Wilds landing here will trigger one of the game’s two Wild features: Heaven and Hell. These areas take up the top two and bottom two rows of the reel set respectively.
How to play
As you’d expect, you can enjoy this game on your device of choice, from 0.40 to an eye-watering200 a pop.
Among the icons on the reels are playing-card suits designed as crystals, alongside helmets, lions, skulls and hoods. But the most rewarding (paying 150 coins for five in a row) are the Angel and Demon characters mentioned above. These can display stacked, and cover whole reels.
Paylines shell out from left to right, kicking off from the reel furthest left. As usual, you’ll need three similar symbols to win. Autoplay is on offer for up to a thousand uninterrupted whirls; the usual Max Bet function is also here.
Special features for Archangels: Salvation Slot
The lion’s head Wild shows up in a 2×2 format and up to 16 single Wilds also come into play. As ever, the Wild replaces regular icons, but not the Scatter, here represented by the shield symbol.
If a 2×2 Wild appears fully or partially in the upper hotspot, this perk launches and you get two Wild stacks; four if the initial 2×2 lands there fully.
This triggers in the same way as above for the lower hotspot. Generate eight to 16 single Wilds, according, again, as to whether you have landed the original Wild fully or partially. Retrigger this round if another Wild appears in the hotspot to enjoy either one stacked or a quartet of solo Wilds.
Play this in the usual way when at least a trio of Scatters appears wherever you like on the reels. (Incidentally, Scatters display two rows high.) Win 10, 15, 20 or 25 freebies for three, four, five or six freebies respectively.
At the same time, the hotspot areas expand to take up three rows apiece, so that it’s easier to scoop Wilds and trigger the heaven and hell features mentioned above.
Unfortunately, however, you won’t be able to retrigger this nice little earner.
This isn’t a game to play if you insist on a progressive jackpot. But you can win up to 375x wager off one spin, and if you cover all the reels with Devil or Angel symbols, you’re in for a 15,000-coin payday.
Return to Player
Return to Player or RTP in this game is pretty healthy at 96.08%, and you can expect medium-range volatility here.
This is a high-octane, visually stunning offering from an operator at the top of its, er, game, and which rarely disappoints. Equally, don’t be put off if you think Archangels: Salvation Slot sounds complicated – it really isn’t once you get going.
So prepare for some action-packed graphics, all topped off by a cracking soundtrack.
