New Online Casino Game: Prime Zone
When Quickspin releases a new online pokie title, Australian players are some of the first to be able to play it. Casino operators like Joka Room, Pokie Pop, Play Amo, and Kahuna Casino have licensing agreements with Quickspin and already have its newest release – Prime Zone – ready for action.
Prime Zone Basics
Picture yourself on a highway, driving toward the ocean, palm trees lining the road and a beautiful sunset ahead. The city is off to the right, with high-rise buildings outlined as the sky turns pink and purple, all happening as the Sun sets and nightlife awaits.
This is the scene when a player pulls up Prime Zone.
The reels themselves are surrounded by bright colours, and the graphics are crisp on every screen. The spinning reels and the theater-style lights that surround some the reels only add to the excitement.
The 5-reel, 3-row slot game offers 10 paylines, with glamorous symbols filling the reels. The game is medium variance and has an RTP (return-to-player) of 96.28%.
The soundtrack is a bit jazzy, too, and its upbeat nature serves as the perfect companion to the setting.
Players can turn the sound on or off, click a button to use a keyboard’s spacebar to spin the reels, and choose whether or not to see the splash screen on the game’s startup.
The lowest betting option is $0.10, and the maximum is $100.00.
As for the payouts for each symbol, they are:
- Wilds: $5,000 for 5 symbols
- Red sevens: $2,500 for 5
- Blue sevens: $2,000 for 5
- Diamonds: $1,250 for 5
- Gold bells: $1,000 for 5
- Pink hearts and green spades: $500 for 5
- Purple clubs and blue diamonds: $250 for 5
Prime Zone Features and Gameplay
The first thing to do when the game is ready to be played is spin!
One thing that will appear on the reels is the multiplier wild symbol. It might appear on any reel and will substitute for all symbols except the bonus scatter. If two or more multiplier wilds hit on a single line, the payout multiplier is based on the number of wilds.
The symbol that players most want to see is the round red bonus symbol. It can appear on the second, third, and fourth reels, and three of them trigger the Prime Zone Bonus.
This gives the player seven free spins. But the player must make a decision before they begin. There are four different spin options:
- x1 Wins, all multipliers affected on reels one, two, and three.
- x2 Wins, all multipliers affected on reels, two, three, and four.
- x3 Wins, all multipliers affected on reels three, four, and five.
- Mystery Prime Zone shifts wilds on each spin, varies multipliers between 1x and 4x.
The safest option would be to choose the first one, as more wilds on the initial reels are practically guaranteed to win something. But choosing x2 or x3 will increase those wins, even if they aren’t as frequent. And the Mystery box will vary on each spin, but has the potential for much higher wins.
(A note from our game testers: The first three options for the bonus round are the safer choice, but each time we played the Mystery option, we had different results. The multipliers always varied from 1x to 4x, with the latter being rarer, but the wilds shifted as well. Every time, we hit at least one spin that triggered a significant payout.)
Further Information about this Las Vegas Themed Slot
When the game was released just days ago, Quickspin executives saw that casinos were anxious to display Prime Zone in their “new games” sections.
Chief Product Officer Erik Gullstrand called the game “super fun and exciting,” a “one-of-a-kind slot for the true casino fans.” He also noted, from a personal perspective:
“Even though we’re releasing a lot of exciting games this year, I have to admit that this one speaks a little bit extra to my gambler soul”.
Gullstrand also said that some casinos are participating with Quickspin to promote the game via a summer-themed tournament. This gives players a chance to play the game for free but still qualify to win prizes. Players should contact their preferred casino to inquire about the promotion.
For those anxious to get in on the Prime Zone action, Pokie Pop and Joka Room are featuring the game, as are Kahuna Casino and Play Amo. All of these casinos online also offer a substantial welcome bonus – and most have reload bonus deals as well – to boost one’s account for the summer.
