Ever since Yggdrasil officially entered the gambling market and acquired their first license in 2013, the need of other software developers to retain the competitive edge has almost become tangible and it was clear from the get-go that the new kid in town will up the ante. The sharp intuition of the veteran providers was not wrong – it did not take long for Yggdrasil to become the talk of the town and much more than that! Their creative vision and visual criteria have put to shame a number of more experienced gaming designers, exposing somewhat of a creative rut in the world of slot design. The upward trend of Yggdrasil’s success continued and now, years later, their latest slot Tut’s Twister is just as fresh and intriguing as Frutoids slots once was.
With the reels laid out deep inside the pharaoh Tut’s eternal resting place, Yggdrasil does not conform with simply employing the relics of Ancient Egypt as the main Tut’s Twister symbols; the slot’s sound effects are quite chilling and a worthy background of the developer’s storyline about the Tut’s resurrection and his unleashed anger aimed at those who dare to disturb the king’s peace!
The high-value symbols are the Golden Goblet with precious stones and Saqqara Bird, closely followed by the King’s Ring and Scroll. Symbols with the lower payout value are card suit gems – red, purple, green and blue. All of the icons become payable in the combination of three, when positioned on the connecting reels, starting from the first reel to the left. Tut’s Twister also introduces a special set of hieroglyphs that the player collects during the game, thus triggering the special feature.
The paylines are fixed, without the option to increase or decrease the number of betways; instead, the players can adjust the coins, choosing the values from $0.004 to $5.00 and adjusting the bet to the total of $125. To set up the highest coin value in just a single click, the players can use the Max Bet button, which will automatically press the bets.
Advanced gaming commands are located on the left side of the gaming screen, enabling the players to perform audio and visual settings and adjust the spin speed. Under the same gaming menu, Auto Play stopping point can be determined, by entering a specific amount, which, once reached, interrupts the Auto gameplay and resumes the standard, manual spinning mode. The number of Auto spins ranges from 10 to 1000 and can be stopped at any time before the spins expire or the predetermined condition is met.
Two Wild Tut symbols will trigger the Tut’s Twister feature which will award Re-spins, the moving Wilds, and a progressive multiplier. During the feature, the reel to the left will become the Twister and freeze, while the rest of the reels continue to spin. All the Wilds found on the reels will then gravitate towards the Twister and Re-spins will continue until the last Wild is sucked in by the Twister. The number of Wilds will also determine the level of the multiplier, which increases with every 3 Wilds that appear on the screen. One (last chance) spin is triggered when all of the Wilds are removed from the reels, and after that the Twister releases all the Wilds, adding the final multiplier to the total winning amount.
A single Wild during the base game is all it takes for the player to win the mystery feature and get a reward, be it an additional hieroglyph, another Wild, the Twister feature or a cash prize. There is also the possibility of revealing an empty field, which means that no prize will be unlocked.
The maximum amount that the player can win on a single Tut’s Twister is 125,000 coins and the long-term return to player percentage is estimated at 97.1%. With the lower betting limit of $0.10, this slot is an ideal choice for the players who are after a game with a decent payout rate but without the excessive risk rate.
Every Yggdrasil slot release is a small and intricate universe of its own, with each of the elements carefully designed to provide the optimal experience to players, regardless of how demanding they may be. Stunning visuals, great audio, an excellent return to the player percentage, engaging bonus features and a generous total payout potential – nothing less is expected from the Yggdrasil’s magic factory.
