Aurora Beast Hunter Slot Game
Anybody in their mid thirties can remember those Manga type cartoons that made their debut on TV in the mid 80’s and early 90’s with sexy female star fighters and male heroes, with the most outlandish hair styles, each of whom possessed a special power. Just For The Win brings us Aurora Beast Hunter, an adventure which takes place in a Martian-like desert terrain set up where our hero Aurora has to hunt, find and destroy the alien mutant worms which live and have to be drawn out of a network of subterranean tunnels. An array of weapons have been supplied, some of which are less useful than others. such as the nunchaku and the shuriken-aka throwing star, both of which pale next to the missile launcher scatter and the 2 guns. All of these weapons are what you and Aurora have to track down and annihilate the 6 unearthly creatures. This flashback will also be a nostalgic experience for those who grew up with comics filled with colourful graphics laden with graffiti style onomatopoeic words like zap , cling, crash and most of all, some good old hard rock music.
Well equipped and ready to do battle we set off to hunt down a weird motley crew or invasive mutant worm-like creatures that go by such names as Treasure Tick, Cash Crawler, Diamond Dweller, Jewel Jaws and Fortune Flyer, all of which act as wilds and trigger some very interesting animations. This slot game comes with a rather intriguing platform of 3-4-3-4-3 which holds 40 paylines that can dish out random cash prices and an assortment of wild cards during the base game. These can substitute for any other card, except the scatter, to create, or complete winning combinations. The 4 different types are the regular wild, the stacked wild, the expanding wild and the sticky wild stack and are depicted as stomach churning alien symbols. Any win with their contribution rewards the player the highest winning combination on a line. As usual the black jack cards from jack to ace feature as the lower paying cards, whereas the higher value symbols are a sundry collection of weaponry and the star of the show herself, Aurora, who boasts the best payout of the symbols at 12.5 x the stake for 5. The cash prizes also come with at least one sticky wild and a bonus of 1.2x or 2x. On the shorter, odd reels namely 1, 3 and 5. Wilds may also land randomly and these can be as many as 5 which may very well create a number of winning combinations. Alternatively you may also land the wild stack which is rewarded by respins and expanded wilds. This means that during the base game you could randomly be handed out features as well as a cash prize.
Scattrer and feature selection
As few as two of these mobile rocket launcher scatters are enough to trigger some action as these only appear on the shorter reels namely 1, 3 and 5, so when two appear, the reel without the scatter spins one more time to hopefully land the third scatter which will then award the player with the free spin feature selection where you choose from the three. The Danger Zone that has a medium volatility rating with a maximum payout of top payout of 3000x stake and consists of 8 free spins during which between 1 and 5 regular wilds in any position are awarded on every spin. Sand Storm which is 12 free spins with a max potential payout of 2000x during which expanding wilds award a cash payout of 1.5x the bet and stacked wilds award a payout of 2x the bet, or Sub which has the highest potential of 5000x stake, but is also the feature with the highest volatility and the least number of spins. During the 5 spins stacks and expanding wilds may stick providing they land on a particular reel which is randomly chosen for that spin.
Sum up of Aurora Beast Hunter
Well this slot game has some dynamic features and interesting mechanics but I don’t think it will appeal to a very wide section of punters. The theme is for a very selective type of player as is the soundtrack. A wave of heavy rock music set to suit either old rockers or younger head bangers. The providers, Just For The Win, set about to do a good job and succeeded in creating a blast from the past slot game on a 3-4-3-4-3 format packed with effects and cartoon animations which will surely not disappoint anyone who was around when TV cartoons evolved into another era of lasers and superpowers. 40 betways with a maximum potential payout of 5000x the bet, 3 free spin features and a multitude of wilds which stack, expand and reward players as they go along their way and make for bigger wins. The slot game comes with the average RTP of 96.27% , but what is perhaps quite interesting is that the game adjusts its volatility during the 3 free spin features which can better the odds, or payout potential, hence offering the player the opportunity to be able to rake in some more substantial winnings, or lower the risk factor. The bet size begins as low as 0.10 coins but can be pushed all the way up to 50 coins and can be adjusted to suit all pockets. This slot game is a commissioned project for the exclusive use of Microgaming so it will be limited to their network of affiliated casinos.
