NetEnt’s digital alchemists concoct new Arcane Reel Chaos Slot.
Most of today’s
online slot creations revolve around joyous themes. Whether it’s an
exciting sport, a happy tale of fantasy and laughter, or a comical
creation with cartoon-style graphics, the motif is generally bright
and energetic. But sometimes, something comes along that fails to
encompass any of these pleasantries.
collection of NetEnt online slots grows larger
this month with the addition of a darker title; one of a villainous
nature, brimming with archaic sorcery and evil intent. The Gothic
portrayal might not appeal to every interactive slots fan, but I’ve
no doubt many of you will find the cynically thaumaturgic theme most

alchemists put a great deal of thought and creativity into this one!
A series of characters with a complete backstory converge into chaos
in this 5×3 video slot, boasting a low/medium variance and slightly
above average RTP of 96.81%.
“Inside Arcane Reel Chaos, a ravaged city holds a dark secret. The evil villain, Deep Pockets, watches you every step of the way…”
Pockets (formerly Don Parker) is the game’s villain;
an evil man born of a terrible curse. The blighted talisman he
greedily sold to save his business long ago is the same ancient relic
our heroes need to defeat him in free spins. Those heroes include
Flare, wielder of flame, ZERO.X, the
two-headed copycat illusionist, Chrono, manipulator of
time and space, and Psyop, master of mental trickery.
these 5 characters make up the game’s high paying symbols. 10, J, Q,
K A are the low paying variety. The wild is represented by a golden
W, and the scatter by the serpentine talisman. Enhancing the thematic
depiction, all symbols are designed to mimic runic tarot cards.
Chaotic Features of the Arcane Heroes
Our four heroes
are the only ones who can stop their arch nemesis, Deep Pockets. To
do so, they will each randomly unleash their powers:
Multiplier: When activated at random, Flare’s 6-pointed star
blazes over the reels, instantly multiplying any winning combinations
by 3x, 4x or 5x.
Overlay Wilds: If randomly triggered, ZERO.X will duplicate 3 to
5 wilds in arbitrary positions on the reels.
Re-Spin: At random after a spin that produces no wins, Chrono
will appear to enforce a Re-Spin of all 5 reels. With each re-spin,
the multiplier increases by 1x, up to a maximum of 10x. The reels
continue to re-spin in this fashion until a winning combination
Stacked Wilds: This feature can activate at random in the main
game, causing the entire second and/or third reel to stack with
Last but not
least, a trio of talisman’s (3+ scatters) will induce Free Spins
that can progress through four stages. Survive all four stages to
defeat the vile Deep Pockets and end his reign of terror, unleashing
great reward. In each stage, the villain’s health increases, as does
the player’s win multiplier.

My Take on this New NetEnt Online Slots Game
Slots lovers are
sure to enjoy this game’s dark plot. I was especially impressed with
the fact that NetEnt developed a high RTP slot with a low/medium
variance – something that’s becoming all too rare these days. High
volatility is fine for high rollers, but most of us do our wagering
on a budget. Without low variance, a modicum bankroll may not last
long enough to get the full spectrum of entertainment a game like
Arcane Reel Chaos Slot truly deserves. So for that, I thank you
NetEnt, and if you find the darker theme appealing, I highly
recommend giving this game a whirl.
