There are several fantasy-themed slots doing the rounds on the internet at this moment in time, of which NextGen Gaming’s Renegades is just one of them. This game is considerably more modern-looking than most other NextGen slots, with a revamped wagering menu amongst the niceties added by the developers. The look and feel helps this slot to stand out from other NextGen slots, even if it doesn’t have an original theme. As for the nitty gritty parts, Renegades offers a 243 ways to win payline structure over its 5 reels, with bets costing anything from 30p up to £60 per spin. There is nothing out of the ordinary there. Top prizes are capped at a fair and modest 250x your total bet.
Wild symbols are particularly plain and dull in this game. These fiery symbols can substitute for all other symbols except for ice symbols. Yes, the whole fire and ice thing comes back time and time again with slots in this genre.
One of the niftier aspects of this slot is the Mega Symbol bonus. On any potential spin, up to 3 reels may lock together and display the same symbols. These colossal symbols can be as large as 3×3 and can help you along the way to bagging big wins.
Ice symbols appear as bonus icons, and 3 of those is enough to trigger the slot’s secondary feature.
Free spin bonuses are triggered by landing at least 3 of the ice bonus symbols on the reels in any position. A total of 8 free spins are dished out to players, but there is nothing particularly remarkable or special about the feature. You do tend to win more whilst the bonus feature is being played, but the same could be said of many slots.
Aside from its Mega Symbol bonus features (which are exciting and refreshing) Renegades really is a case of the “the same old” thing. This fantasy-themed slot will win some over, but many slot players will find rather dull in a world where there are so many options to choose from within this genre.
