It’s time to grab a warm jacket my friends, as we are off to explore snowy mountain peaks, home to some ferocious wildlife, in the Blazing Mammoth Slot from PearFiction.
With bonus features galore, and some lucrative jackpots on the cards, there is a lot of potential in this game!
Blazing Mammoth Facts
Blazing Mammoth Epic Stike is a 5 reel and 3 row online slot from PearFiction, a partner of Games Global. This wooly, tusky game has 20 pay-lines with a free spins bonus and a jackpot of 2000x your stake. No that’s nowhere near the top payout of the Totem Lightning Power Reels slot, but it ain’t bad either.
Mammoth symbols are the ones to collect to trigger the instant jackpots. The more you land, the higher the jackpot (9 sets off the 2000x win, double the max pay you’ll find on Solar Wilds from All41.).
Up to 30 free spins with a 2x or 3x multiplier can be won with 3 scatter symbols. Blazing Mammoth runs on the same game engine as 9 Pots of Gold but is low variance.
PearFiction is a partner of Games Global (ex Microgaming) and the latest to release a title based on the popular math model of Gameburger’s 9 Masks of Fire. Other partners include SpinPlay, the people behind the Diamond King Gold slot and others.
Changes have been made to the slot mechanics on the volatility front in Blazing Mammoth Epic Strike: a lower setting should mean that wins will land more regularly with smaller payouts.
The maximum return from a single spin is triggered via the jackpot feature with a high payout of 2,000x the stake up for grabs. And there are plenty more ways of landing good payouts with bonus features and base game symbols.
There are 20 paylines across the play grid on which symbol combinations can return rewards.
Blazing Mammoth Design
Lucky players will win with combinations of three and five symbols across active paylines, with different values attached to each symbol. A simple, golden rectangle frames the 5-reels and 3-rows of play with a dark blue backdrop separating the grid from the image behind it.
The developer has been busy on the visual features with snow-capped mountains and a picturesque, purple sunset in the distance. Fluffy white clouds and snowflakes falling lazily from the top of the screen set the scene. Let’s go and find some mammoths!
As the reels spin, the screen zooms in on specific reels if a single bonus symbol is required – it all keep keeps the tension high.
Blazing Mammoth Gameplay
There are seven base game symbols in play that will reward payouts when three or more land across a payline. There are also 3 Bonus symbols that will reward their own payouts and allow you to access bonus features.
The lower value symbols in play are of various ice age animals; in order of increased value, these are the Wolf, Woolly Rhino, Bear and Sabre-Tooth Tiger.
The higher value symbols are straight out of a classic fruit machine with 7, 77 and 777 leading to the biggest base game wins. If you land a combination of the three seven symbols across a payline you’ll trigger the same payout as the Sabre-Tooth Tiger symbol.
The bonus symbols include a ‘W’ Wild: five across a pay line will return a decent payout and help land other symbol combinations. The Free Spin symbol also triggers a payout if three land across the grid and this will trigger access to the Free Spins wheel feature. The mammoth Jackpot symbol triggers one of the jackpots on offer : which one is triggered is determined by how many you land.
Blazing Mammoth Bonus Features
Lets talk about the ‘W’ Symbol. This bonus Wild symbol will help you land winning combinations by substituting for other game symbols across the grid.
The Free Spins symbols will land on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reel. If you land three in a single spin, you will trigger the Free Spins wheel.
Spin the wheel with various numbers on an inner wheel and multipliers on the outer rim. This will reward you with between 10 and 30 Free Spins with a 2x or 3x multiplier attached: any returns are added to a prize pot and rewarded after the final spin.
Finally, the mammoth Jackpot symbols can land across the reel set, with jackpot returns triggered for between 3 and 9 appearances in a single spin. The payouts here vary from 1x the stake up to 2,000x the stake!
