Epic Theme And Gameplay Basics
Amazing Link™ Apollo is the result of the latest collaborative effort between acclaimed game developer SpinPlay Games and software giant, Microgaming. It successfully mines stories from Ancient Greek mythology to deliver a theme that’s proven extremely popular with players all over the world, including New Zealand.
Played over a 5x3 reel structure and 20 paylines, Amazing Link™ Apollo comes with Wild and Scatter symbols, plus features like Free Spins and of course, the Amazing Link™ with its Amazing symbols. A medium-high volatility online pokies game, it has a payout percentage of 96.40% and a total hit frequency rate of 28.28%. Minimum and maximum bet sizes are 0.20 and 50.00 credits per spin, respectively.
While standard buttons for spinning the reels or altering one’s bet size are all there, players will also notice four possible jackpot prizes on the left-hand side of the reels. These include the Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega.
The symbols of this wonderful online and mobile casino game have all been superbly designed and crafted to elevate the game’s mythological theme. Of course, there is Apollo, the eye-catching ruler of the sun. He acts as the game’s Wild symbol and holds the power of substitution – which means he can replace other symbols on the reels to help create possible winning formations. Furthermore, he can expand over multiple positions, appearing stacked on the reels.
Other symbols include an attractive white horse, glittering chariot, enchanting lyre, and decorative urn. Plus, there are the standard royals – 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A – all of which have been given the Ancient Greek treatment in terms of style. The golden temple represents the Scatter symbol and the blazing sun acts as the Amazing symbol – both the only symbols the Wild cannot replace and the keys to unlocking some enticing features.
Is Amazing Link™ Apollo one of the best online slots around? It certainly ticks a lot of boxes, especially when it comes to looks and sounds. But what about its features? Well, these are impressive too. Let’s start with the Amazing Link™ feature, which is triggered by the appearance of 6 or more Amazing symbols.
Here, 3 repins are awarded, while all Amazing symbols are locked for each respin. If additional Amazing symbols land, then the remaining respins will reset to 3. Furthermore, each Amazing symbol holds a cash prize, which gets awarded at the end of the feature. The feature can only end once all positions are taken up, or the respins are done. Notably, if all positions fill up, the sought-after Mega jackpot can be won.
Next up we have the Pick feature – which triggers at random at the end of a base game spin. What’s more, any of four jackpot prizes can potentially be won here too. The point of the feature is to pick and match icons. If 3 are matched, then one of the jackpot prizes will be awarded. Apart from the Mega, we have the Major, Minor, and Mini jackpots up for grabs.
Remember those golden temple Scatter symbols we mentioned previously? Land 3 or more of these and the ever-popular Free Spins feature will activate, and where one chooses the number of Amazing Reels and Free Spins. Some of these selections will only be made available by playing the Free Spins. As for what are Amazing Reels, these are reels that only have Wild and Amazing symbols. Land any more golden temple Scatter symbols and an additional Free Spin will be given, and the reel will be upgraded for the remainder of the feature.
