Spinomenal Kicks Off 2021 with Poseidon and Kitsune Slots
There is nothing like starting a new year with new projects and great news. The gaming creators and designers must have been busy at the end of 2020 because Spinomenal is kicking off 2021 with several new titles and more on the way.
Poseidon’s Rising was the first new release of 2021, but Book of Tribes Reloaded followed a week later. This week, Kitsuna’s Scrolls Expanded hits the top Aussie online casinos, and Goddess of Lotus is scheduled for the last week of January.
Poseidon’s Rising: General Info
Spinomenal classified Poseidon’s Rising as a “premium” release, one that belongs to its Greek Gods games series. With advanced graphics and new mathematics, this game tells the story of Poseidon, as much as a casino game can. Players are in the blue waters of the sea, amidst a lightning storm, in the middle of the action.
The game is a 5×3 slot with 50 paylines. It plays at a volatility level between medium and high with a 96.1% RTP (return to player). Players can start at a minimum bet of $0.50 per spin ($0.01 per line) and take it up to a max bet of $500 per spin. The max payout is set at 1000x the bet.
Some of the top-paying regular symbols are as follows, with five on a payline:
- Wild (Poseidon) = 1000x bet per line ($10 for $0.50 total bet)
- Woman with purple bathing suit = 500x bet per line
- Woman with green bathing suit = 400x bet per line
- Dragon = 200x bet per line
- Octopus = 100x bet per line
Poseidon’s Rising Features
Wilds can substitute for any symbol except the Bonus scatters. Those Bonus symbols can trigger free spins when three of them land on the first, third, and fifth reels. Those free spins begin on a map with four different modes, which will trigger consecutively every time the player hits the bonus round.
During the free spins, winning combinations trigger respins. The winning symbols become sticky and all other symbols spin for new ones. This repeats until no new winning symbols appear. Players will also find Shifting Wilds during the bonus game, which start on the first reel and move to the right with every losing spin. There are also Expanding Wilds, which fill the entire reel during free spins. Extra Wilds may also appear as sticky symbols on the third reel and remain during the duration of the bonus.
There is no shortage of features during the base game, either. The most exciting is the Poseidon’s Rising Stacked Wild, which can land on the third reel. When it does, it triggers respins, with the Stacked Wild moving with each respin.
It sounds like a lot. And it is. This is a very elaborate game with many features with an engaging soundtrack and vivid graphics.
Give it a try as a free-play game on Spinomenal’s website.
Book of Tribes Reloaded: General Info
This is a sequel game, one in which Spinomenal updates the game with newer technology, graphics, and features. The book itself is as golden as it gets, and the game plays against a moss-covered forest background with varying shades of green. The Aztec temple plays host to the grid and the action.
Book of Tribes Reloaded is also a 5×3 video slot, this one with five paylines. The RTP is 96.11% and the volatility level is high. Low-stakes bettors can play for as little as $0.05 per spin, and the max bet is $50. The win potential is 10,000x.
Players should watch for these top-paying symbols when the player hits five on a payline:
- Native man = 10,000x
- Native woman = 5,000x
- Eagle = 1,000x
- Tiger = 1,000x
- Scatter (Book of Tribes) = 250x
Book of Tribes Reloaded Features
The Wild and Scatter are the same in this game, and it is the actual golden Book of Tribes. If three or more of them appear, it triggers 10 free spins. During the bonus spins, players will see medium payout symbols on a wheel. A spin of the wheel determines which symbol will be the Expanding Symbol for the duration of the free spins.
It’s also important to note that the Scatter/Wild symbols will be in play during free spins, which means they can hit again and add another 10 spins to the bonus round.
This game, too, is available for free play with a demo version on the Spinomenal website.
Kitsune’s Scrolls Expanded Edition: General Info
This Japanese-themed online slot is an improvement on the original. Kitsune’s Scrolls was a hit with Aussie online casino players since its release, which inspired this Expanded Edition. Kitsune is the main character in this beautifully animated game, complete with pink cherry blossom trees in the background and a flute-driven soundtrack.
One of the improvements in this game is a sixth reel, making it now a 6×4 slot with 25 paylines. The 96.1% RTP is standard. And the betting starts at $0.25 per spin and stops at $250 per spin. The maximum payout is 3000x the bet.
The top-paying symbols in Kitsune’s Scrolls Expanded, with six on a payline, are:
- Wild (Kitsune) = 3000x
- Fox = 2000x
- Mask = 1200x
- Swords = 400x
- Scroll = 200x
Kitsune’s Scrolls Features
As mentioned, the Wild is Kitsune and may replace any symbol except the Free Spins and Bonus.
When at least three of the Bonus symbols appear on the grid, it triggers the Bonus Game. This starts with three free spins. For every five winning symbols on the board, it fills one cell in the meter to the left of the grid. Each cell increases the multiplier for the wins. The first cell equals a 3x multiplier, followed by 6x, 9x, 12x, 15x, 20x, 50x, 100x, 200x, and ultimately 500x. Every symbol that reads “+1 Spin” adds another spin to the bonus round.
Then there are the Free Spins symbols. Three or more trigger 10 free spins. During the free spins, note that the Wild becomes a Stacked Wild and can appear on any reel. One, two, or three will appear on each spin. This increases the chance of winning spins.
During the base game play, there are also two features. Expanding Wilds occur when a Wild fills the entire reel. And Synced Reels increase the chances of winning on every spin, as there will always be two reels with exactly the same symbols.
Again for this game, players can visit the Spinomenal game page for Kitsune’s Scrolls Expanded Edition to play for free.
What’s Next and Where to Play
By the end of January, Spinomenal will release yet another 2021 game. Goddess of Lotus seems to be another Asian-themed game with more crisp colors and breathtaking animation. It looks to be a 5×3 game with 50 paylines. Features will include free spins, a bonus game, respins, and sticky wilds.
Note that all Spinomenal games mentioned here may also offer a “Buy” or “Gamble” feature. This allows the players to pay a certain amount based on the bet size to access a bonus round or free spins automatically. These are risky bets.
