A Popular Playtech Online Slots Engine

February 1, 2018

A slots engine, also referred to as a mathematical model, defines the structure of the slot machine. The components include the number of reels, rows and paylines. It also fixes the number of symbols and their line and scatter payouts. The gaming features like free spins and bonus rounds are also included in the slots engine.

Every new video slot does not have a different slots engine. Online casino games suppliers keep using popular slots engines with different themes. This article discusses one such mathematical slots model from Playtech. The games supplier has announced a new video slot Epic Ape. This will use the same structure as two popular slots – Buffalo Blitz and Dragon Champions. All these slot games can be played at Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.

This slots engine is based on 6 reels, 4 rows and 4,096 ways to win. There are five thematic high paying symbols. The main one appears stacked on all the reels with fantastic win animations. All symbols will start paying from combinations of two symbols. The low paying symbols are six playing card icons that will start paying from combinations of three symbols. The wild symbol appears on all reels except the first one. It does not award line payouts. Three or more Free Games logo symbols anywhere on the reels trigger the free spins feature. The total bet is 40 times the line bet. The top line payout is 300 coins.

There is only one bonus feature in this slots engine, which is the free spins feature. The number of free spins awarded depends on the number of scatters in the triggering spin. Three symbols award 8 free spins, four symbols award 15 free spins, five symbols award 25 free spins and six symbols award 100 free spins. The wild symbol randomly multiplies payouts by 2x, 3x or 5x during the free spins. The free spins can be retriggered as per the original scheme. In addition, two scatter symbols will trigger 5 more free spins.

Buffalo Blitz has the American bison as the main symbol and other North American animals like puma, raccoon, elk and grizzly bear as other high paying symbols. The buffalo charging at full speed when it appears stacked on several reels is an awesome sight. The diamond is the wild symbol. In Dragon Champions the fire breathing dragon is the main symbol and the four dragon hunters the other high paying symbols. The game logo is the wild symbol.
