- A slot with expanding Wilds and lots of free spins
- Has a very overused theme which doesn’t help it stand out
- Not a bad game but it does get boring fairly quickly
Phoenix Reborn slot from Play N Go is yet another Aztec/Mayan type game that’s rather simple and revolves largely around the Wild symbol, the great Phoenix itself. It does offer some fairly big payouts and quite a few free spins, so read on to find out more.
As I mentioned, this is a very overused theme and so, even though the graphics are pretty good and I like the design, it’s a shame that the theme is so boring and the game doesn’t really stand out because of that. Moving on, you have 5 reels in total with 5 rows also. Your job is to land a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols on these reels. The base symbols are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Ancient Symbols (lowest value)
- Toucan, Snake or Panther
- Green Man
- Purple Woman
- Phoenix (highest value)
The Phoenix symbol here is actually the Wild symbol as well. This means that it will substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Scatter symbol.
Phoenix Reborn Slot Bonuses and Features
Phoenix Flames. I’ve already explained that the Wild symbol is the most valuable and also substitutes for other symbols, but even better, it will expand to fill the entire reel whenever it lands on the screen. You can win up to 5,000x your total stake if it manages to fill up every position.
Rise of the Phoenix. The final symbol in the game is the Scatter symbol, shown as a sort of face. You actually need at least 3 of these to appear anywhere on the reels to trigger the Bonus. Landing just 3 of them will give you 7 free spins, while 4 will give you 12 free spins and 5 will give the maximum initial number of 20 free spins. So there are 2 special features within the Bonus you should be aware of. First is the fact that you can win more free spins with as little as 2 Scatter symbols. That will only give you another 3 free spins, but 3 will give you 7, 4 gives you 12 and 5 gives you another 20 free spins, just as before. As well as this, on every free spin, you are guaranteed to get a Wild symbols appearing on a random reel. This will obviously expand, so it means you should get quite a few wins here. You can of course land more than just 1, but that’s the minimum.
Phoenix Reborn slot from Play N Go is a fairly simple game that offers some nice payouts and a very useful Wild symbol. It’s the Wild symbol that really makes the game special, as it’s used both in the base game and the Free Spins Bonus to improve things. While I do like the features here, I would have liked to have seen at least one more to make the game more interesting. The only way of getting big wins here is with lots of Wilds and only really looking forward to that gets a bit boring after a while. The theme’s also pretty dull and very overused, so it’s not a game that stands out visually in my opinion. In short, it plays fairly well but isn’t very original and does get a bit boring after a while, so it won’t be for everyone. By all means check it out though, and also take a look at some of Play N Go’s other slots here.
