Video slot Nirvana Slot is driven by Yggdrasil Gaming software and it’s presented over 20 Paylines with a standard five reels plus three rows.
The theme is the tranquillity to be enjoyed from finding ultimate nirvana, and there’s a chilled-out soundtrack to complement this blissful idea. It’s definitely not to be confused with Kurt Cobain or the 1990s Seattle grunge scene!
The graphics are incredible as always with this Scandi operator, and have an emphasis on fantasy – plus there’s a particularly good free spins round during which a trio of goddesses could answer all your prayers. The background is a smoky haze, through which the silhouettes of a few buildings can be seen.
How to play
Set your bets as you normally would. All the typical Spin, Max Bet and Autoplay functions are here, and you can play from 40p a pop or for as much as £100 per spin.
Nirvana Slot is also fully mobile-friendly and works in both portrait and landscape mode.
Symbols on the reels are distinctly weird and wonderful. Look out for an antlered rabbit, a cat with a bird face, a lizard, a dragon dripping with gold and a bird with the appearance of a phoenix. The lower-value (but colourful) card symbols are also here.
Nirvana Slot special features
The Wild here can rock up on any reel, and it’s a green gem in a golden frame. It does its usual thing of replacing all other symbols bar the Scatter (free spins) icon, which here is a pink lotus bloom.
Free spins feature
This is a highlight of Nirvana Slot, and works as follows:
- Land two Scatters for one free whirl
- Land three (or more) for 10 free goes
- Trigger the perk using four or five icons and a payday of 1,000 or 5,000 coins respectively is yours
But that’s not all. Also in this round, the three goddesses work their magic with a trio of additional perks, as follows:
Wild Seeds: Enjoy an extra clutch of Wilds (between two and four) to greatly boost your chances of winning.
Mega Reel: Here, each row of the central three reels will be made up of the same symbol, raising your payout potential although lowering your chances of retriggering further spins.
Nudge Reels: This shifts your reels by a single space to give you the best possible position. The payout potential may be less than that of the Mega Reel, but, crucially, you’ll be more likely to retrigger extra free goes.
On which note, if you retrigger further free whirls during the round, you have the chance to play with two of the perks described above. Retrigger for a third-round and the whole trio will be in play for your extra 10 whirls, creating some superb chances for grand wins.
Nirvana Slot’s jackpot stands at 16,000 coins.
Return to Player (RTP)
Return to Player or RTP in Nirvana Slot is pretty standard, at 96.2%. Volatility is pretty high here, so you may need to prepare for some lean periods. (Then again, reaching a higher plane always takes a little time and patience …) The hit rate is nearly one in three at over 29%.
The visuals and the very smooth gameplay are the obvious highlights of the beautifully crafted Nirvana. In terms of features, there’s heavy dependence on the free spins round, and this is where the action seriously starts to warm up. However, there’s not much else.
Give it a go and try it out for yourself – do let us know if you thought it was heavenly and the ying to your yang or not!
