NetEnt’s Arcane: Reel Chaos Slot Arrives this Week | In-Depth Preview
NetEnt has released some excellent slots already this year, however, there’s one, in particular, we’ve been looking forward to, Arcane: Reel Chaos.
Arcane: Reel Chaos is a feature-heavy, superhero-themed slot, which comes with amazing graphics and gameplay options. It’s also set to be released this very week (16th May), so as you can probably tell, the office here at Touch Lucky is very excited.
Read on to watch the slot’s official trailer and to find out more about what you can expect from Arcane: Reel Chaos.
Watch the Arcane: Reel Chaos Trailer
Before we dive into the many features of Arcane: Reel Chaos, why not watch the trailer below to get a feel for the slot?
As you can see from the video, there’s a lot to get to grips with here. Below, we’ve unpacked the slot so that you can learn exactly what gameplay and bonus features you’ll be able to enjoy.
Arcane: Reel Chaos Slot Stats
Before we move on to talking about the main features of Arcane: Reel Chaos, we first need to assess the slot’s stats to make sure it’s as rewarding as it appears:
- RTP: 96.81%
- Reels and Paylines: 5 Reels, 20 Paylines
- Min/Max Bet: 20p – £200
- Max Payout: £242,500
- Features: Stacked Wilds, Multipliers, Wild Overlays, Free Spins
The statistics look appealing and from the size of the bets and the RTP, we can guess this will be a medium to high variance title. This makes it perfect for all types of players and budgets.
Arcane: Reel Chaos Gameplay
As mentioned above, Arcane: Reel Chaos is played across 5 reels and boasts 20 paylines. Its also the first slot to use NetEnt’s brand new Player User Interface, which has been designed to give the player a more streamlined and simple experience.
One major benefit of the new Player User Interface is that bets are now displayed in their cash value instead of as a coin value. In our personal opinion, coin values always seem confusing and so we’re more than happy with the change of style.
Graphics and Theme
Arcane: Reel Chaos is based around four superhero characters, who are attempting to use their powers to defeat their rival, Deep Pockets. As such, the slot has a mystical feel and the reels hang against a dark and derelict city.
In Arcane: Reel Chaos, symbols include traditional 10 to Ace playing card values, as well as the four main superhero characeters: Flare, Zero.x, Chrono and Psyop.
The slot’s highest paying symbol is the villain, Deep Pockets, himself. He will reward players with up to 500x their stake for a 5 of a kind combination.
Arcane: Reel Chaos also features wild symbols, which are present throughout the base game and which are represented by a glowing, golden, W.
Arcane: Reel Chaos comes complete with not one but five bonus features; each superhero has their own bonus round as well as a rewarding free spins round which is triggered when three or more scatter symbols hit the reels.
Random Character Bonuses
Each of these bonus features is triggered randomly in the base game:
- Pysop Bonus – When this feature is activated, players will receive three stacked wild overlays which will cover a whole reel. This, of course, will give players a huge chance to create several winning combinations.
- Zero.x Bonus – In this bonus features, players are handed 3 to 5 wild symbols, which are placed on the reels at random.
- Flare Bonus – The Flare bonus feature can multiply wins by up to 5x.
- Chrono Bonus – This bonus is rewarded to players when they haven’t managed to find a winning combination. All five reels will re-spin, and this process will continue until a win is claimed. Players may also grab extra multipliers, worth up to 10x the win.
As we mentioned earlier, in Arcane: Reel Chaos, the free spins round is triggered when players land three or more scatter symbols on the reels. Players will then enter ‘battle mode’, where all four superheroes must fight off the evil Deep Pockets.
The ‘battle mode’ free spins round has four different levels, with multipliers increasing as you progress.
