There have been many wars fought in the world, but one that will be long remembered is that of Poltava. This battle was fought in 1709 between Russia and Sweden with the former emerging victorious. Elk Studios has now released a video slot with the same name. You can expect Free Spins and a Marching Reels bonus feature in this slot. Check out the details of these features in this review.
What you have in Poltava is an online slot game with a 5×4 reel set as well as 40 paylines. The reels set is transparent and you can see the devastating outcome of the battle in the backdrop. On the reel set, you have only 3 theme specific icons and these are an infantry soldier, a calvary and an artillery.
These symbols make up the high-value icons on the reel set while the low-value symbols include A, Q, J, K and 10 card icons. For the Wild icon, you have the logo of the video slot and it will displace the other icons on the reels apart from the Scatter icon represented by a Lion.
Lion Scatter Triggered Free Spins
You can trigger the game’s Free Spins feature by landing 3 Lion Scatter icons on 3 reels. These reels are 2, 3 and 4, once you land this scatter symbol on these reels, you will earn 3 free spins.
In addition, the 3 Lion Scatter icons will be frozen on their spots on the reel set during the free spins. This feature can be reactivated as well with scatters landed on the reel set earning players an additional free spin in.
Poltava Marching Reels Feature
The Marching Reels bonus feature of Poltava can be activated when you land a fully stacked reel with any of the high-value icons. By so doing you will earn a respin with identical icons showing up on the right side of the reels and moving towards the left side.
The icons stacked on the reel will move a single reel towards the right side of the reel set. In this feature, the movement will continue up until there is no identical icon landed on the reels. Your wins are then evaluated and you are given cash rewards.
To Sum Up
With Poltava, you have a slot with very ingenious bonus features. The gameplay is very good and this is backed up with the crisp graphics and animation display.
