Get your Safari Suits on, Wombat Fans, we’re heading to Africa!
Welcome to Foxium’s newest casino game, Akiva: Claws of Power slot, where you’ll be greeted with a vibrant safari backdrop in the heart of the continent.
Akiva is the heroic main character: a fierce and powerful roaring lion with keen claws. I am slightly concerned about the collection of wild animals that he is bringing with him, but let’s see. It’s looking warmer than the Wolf Fang – the Polar Lights slot – looks better for wombats!
The features include Link&Win, jackpots, Akiva Sandstorm, Claws of Power, and free spins with merged reel giant symbols. Sounds good!
This slot comes with five reels, three rows, and twenty pay-lines. The volatility is medium, with a maximum win of 2500x available. That doesn’t hit the heights of something like the Serial slot machine from Nolimit, but then again that is extremely volatile.
It’s been made mobile-friendly, so you can tuck it into your safari shorts. Let’s get straight into our Akiva: Claws of Power Review and see what makes this African game tick.
A vast, parched landscape is the name of the game here, dotted with lush trees. Uplifting tunes keep the entertainment levels high while we spin away against a picturesque backdrop. The soundtrack cranks up during the free spins to build the tension.
Foxium haven’t shown off their graphic design skills on this game, it is pretty average on that front. Let’s look at the maths model that powers the game.
Akiva: Claws of Power Gameplay
Akiva: Claws of Power can be spun from as little as 0.20, up to a maximum bet of 100.00. To form a winning combination, you must line up at least three identical symbols, starting from the leftmost reel, on one of the game’s paylines.
The traditional royal symbols J, Q, K, and A make up the lower-paying symbols, and you’ll trigger a 2-3x win for five of these matching symbols. The higher-paying symbols are represented by various wild animals. The total pay for a line ranges from 7.5 to 20x your wager.
Wilds can occur anywhere on the reels. They can help by standing in for other symbols to form winning lines. Any successful line that contains five wilds also pays x20 the wager.
This is a random feature that can trigger on any spin. Akiva will change symbols to form a winning pay-out.
Claws of Power
Claws of Power are similar to the Akiva feature. Claws swipe through the reels on this feature to move the symbols to form a winning combination.
Land three drum scatter symbols on reels one, three, and five to trigger five free spins. During the free spins, reels two to four merge to create one big reel with a colossal symbol.
All symbols will count as nine symbols, except if the scatters land which will only count as one. Free spins will re-trigger if you land another five scatter symbols during the feature.
The Link&Win is a popular feature on many slots. You’ll need at least six money coin symbols on the reels to trigger the feature. You get three re-spins, and the triggering coins stay frozen in place.
The coins come with a prize value of between 1x and 100x your bet. The re-spin meter is reset to three on each winning spin, and you keep spinning.
The game completes when you fill all the reels or have three re-spins without a win. If you fill the reels, you will win the Mega Jackpot worth 1000x of your bet. There is also a mini jackpot worth 30x of your bet to go for.
Akiva: Claws of Power has various features that match the many wild animals on the reels. The base game is really entertaining thanks to the Akiva Sandstorm and Claws of Power features.
The maximum win is a tidy 2500x your bet. Test the slot in demo mode if you want to try it before you play for real money.
Wombat Score: 3.7/5
What are the random features in this game?
An Akiva Sandstorm can trigger randomly. It will morph some of the symbols on the reels for a win. Claws of Power is similar, but you’ll see a claw scratch the grid and symbols will get nudged, also with a guaranteed win.
