Online Slot Review of Rooks Revenge by Betsoft
Rooks Revenge is a video slot that has 5 reels and 25 paylines, quality graphics and sound effects. Developed by Betsoft, it has Scatter and Wild symbols, a bonus round of free spins and an Exploding Symbols Multipliers feature. It is themed to history and the culture of the Aztecs and is available to play online for free.
Round of Free Spins
If you land three Scatters along an active payline, you will trigger this round. It will automatically launch a certain number of free spins set by the Exploding Symbols Multipliers feature. If three Scatters reappear during this round, you will get extra free spins. At the end of the game your newly-earned win will be deposited into your account.
Exploding Symbols Multipliers Feature
If during the gameplay winning combinations appear on the screen, all the symbols in them will disappear. The pictures above them will drop down and take their places which can form new combinations. This process will continue until there are no winning combos left. When symbols disappear for the first time, all other combinations will earn you a win as follows:
- second combination of symbols - x2
- 3rd - x3
- 4th - x4
The bottom right corner of the screen shows a scale of the multipliers. The current multiplier for your win will be lit up in gold. The Exploding Symbols Multipliers feature also increases the number of free spins in a bonus round.
Symbols and Multipliers in Rooks Revenge
We will use a line bet of one credit to make calculations of winning combinations simple and more convenient. The cost of one spin will be 25 coins.
Scatter is a picture that shows a gold mask and can only land on reels one, two and three. If three of these symbols appear along an active payline, they will start a bonus round of free spins.
The number of free spins depends on the Exploding Symbols Multipliers feature. When symbols showing a gold mask form combinations for the first time, a bonus round with 3 free spins will be triggered. When they appear two times, you will earn 6 free spins. Once they land three times you will have 9 free spins and four times will reward you with 15 free spins.
The Wild symbol is a gold question mark. It can only appear on reels two, three and four and can replace missing pictures to create a winning combination.
All regular symbols of this slot are designed as stones that show different pictures of people, animals and creatures related to Aztecs and their history. A winning combo of 3, 4 or 5 symbols will earn you the following payouts:
- A brown stone - 3, 10 or 50
- A yellow stone - 4, 15 or 75
- A green stone - 5, 20 or 100
- An orange stone - 10, 25 or 200
- A blue stone - 15, 50 or 500
- A violet stone - 20, 100 or 1,000
- A red stone - 50, 250 or 2,500
