The wombat says: Fancy dipping your paws into the flame-ridden lava pit that is hell? Or perhaps you’d rather ascend with the angels and hang out in heaven? Such important theological questions and this wombat hasn’t even had his brekkie yet. Well, you can do both Wombat fans in this NetEnt slot! This is one of those games, along with the Flame slot and others, that fit right into the eye candy category. It’s a beaut!
Here, a heavenly hosts takes on a fiery demon of hell – on the left of the reels you’ll see an Angel and to the right a demon. Before play gets underway you must pick a side, so choose wisely!
Look and Feel
If ever there was a slot that takes a theme and goes bonkers with it it’s this one. If ever you need proof of how games have moved on from classics like the Respin Rhino slot machine, then look no further slots fans!
Your screen is split into 2, on the left hand side you’ll see serene sky blue colours and a beautiful angel brandishing a heaven stick of some kind, while on the you’ll see an inferno all done up in red with a demon smack bang in the middle of it.
3D animations and HD graphics are also the name of the game here, and if you add in the drum-heavy pompous soundtrack that accompanies the spins then you’ve got a highly immersive slot.
Our only complaint is that the symbols could have been a bit bigger. Perhaps this wombat needs to got to the opticians? I’m still recovering at squinting at the Fortunium slot, but maybe that was because I was trying to play it on a teeny tiny phone. I’ll fire up my phablet next time.
Archangels: Salvation has 6 reels, 12 rows and 100 paylines – which is more than unusual for a NetEnt release.
Your (mini) symbols on the reels include; skulls, lion heads, hooded demon things and warrior helmets along with the playing card suits diamonds, hearts, spades and clubs. Naturally the Angel and Demon characters are also icons and can land stacked on the reels, they are the highest value symbols in the slot and will pay out 150 coins for 5x of a kind.
The wild is the gold ‘W’ icon and there are 2 different Wilds in this game. They can either appear as single icons or in a big 2 x 2 icon, meanwhile, the Scatter in the game is represented by the ‘S’ icon.
You will notice at the top and the bottom of the reels on Archangels: Salvation slot that there is an area called a hot spot. This comes into its own when one of the 2×2 Wilds lands either fully or partially in either of these spaces. When it does, either the Angel or Demon characters will then shoot extra Wilds onto the reels, creating more winning combos. Nice touch NetEnt!
When 3x or more scatters appear on the reels during the base game the feature is triggered:
3x Scatters = 10 free spins
4 Scatters = 15 free spins
5 Scatters = 20 free spins
6 Scatters = 25 free spins
During the free spins feature the Hot Spot area gets bigger and will take up 3 rows making it easier for the 2×2 wilds to land. As such, this means you’ll get the chance to hit a mind boggling 16 wilds on each and every single free spin! Sadly wombat fans this lucrative bonus feature can’t be retriggered – which is fair enough really.
It’s hats off to NetEnt here for bringing out a slot with unique game mechanics and payline structure. With a decent bunch of bonuses on offer you won’t get bored, but be aware that the features aren’t triggered all that often. Archangels: Salvation is a visually stunning slot, so this wombat recommends giving it a go just on the strength of that.
