Betsoft’s Rook’s Revenge takes us on a journey to the Aztec where we meet Rook, our favorite Aztec Chief. The slot has five reels, three rows, and 25 fixed pay lines. The cascading reels make this slot different to most other slots. When a winning combination forms, the symbols crumble, and new symbols cascade onto the reels. Any new winning combinations formed also pay out, then crumble, and this continues until there are no more winning combos. The game is a lot of fun with Rook dances and does gymnastic flips when winning combinations form.
The Aztec-themed slot game is set in the jungle. Reels contain a number of mask symbols, and other Aztec symbols. With the smallest coin size of 0.01, the minimum bet per spins is 0.25. The max coins size is 1, making the maximum bet per spins 125. Rook’s Revenge is easy to play. Simply pick your coin size, and the number of coins per line, and click on spin. The gaming software does the rest while you watch the symbols fall into place. Games sounds are well-used with a crunching sound effect when winning combinations crumble. Since all the symbols are on stone slabs, they clink and clang into place on the reels.
Wins can get quite big in the Rook’s Revenge slot game. When symbols take the place of other winning symbols, the multiplier increases with each win. Eight winning pay lines in a row end with the final pay line paying out with a 15x multiplier. The top regular symbol payout is the red mask, which pays at 5000x for five on a winning pay line. Free spins come with multipliers, making the free spins round especially lucrative. Since the top bet is 125 per spin, which is great for high rollers, wins can get quite big in Rook’s Revenge. The biggest coin payout when you play the maximum bet is 2,330,000 coins.
Keep track of your multipliers at the lower right-hand corner of the Rook’s Revenge slot screen. Each time there is a winning combination, the winnings tiles explode. All games start with a 1x multiplier for the first explosion in the main game. The second explosion comes with a 2x multiplier, then a 3x multiplier for the third explosion. The biggest main game multiplier is 5x on the fourth explosion. Reach the biggest main game multiplier with just three or more winning combinations on a single spin.
The Golden Mask scatter symbol activates the free spins mode. Three golden masks on any active pay line trigger the free games. Golden Masks only appear on the first, second, and third reels. The Golden Masks trigger 10 free spins that come with the multipliers as noted below. If the Golden Mask symbols appear in the correct combination during the free spins round, they retrigger more free spins. This can make for a particularly lucrative free spins round.
There are also multipliers in the free spins round. They operate the same way as the base game multipliers, however, they are bigger each time. The first explosive win comes with a 3x multiplier, followed by a 6x multiplier, and then a 9x multiplier. When the fourth explosion takes place in the free spins round, it comes with a huge 15x multiplier.
The wild substitute symbol is a fancy question mark icon. It substitutes for all other symbols in the game, including the scatter Golden Mask symbols. Wild question mark symbols only appear on the second, third, and fourth reels.
As with all the latest slot games, you can play Betsoft’s Rook’s Revenge while you are on the go. This popular slot can also be played at home on your desktop or laptop computer. When you play via mobile, you can choose from both iOS devices such as iPads and iPhones. Play on your Android smartphones and tablets too. However, please note that when you play on mobile, you will not see Chief Rook’s fun dance and gymnastic moves. Betsoft removed these animations from the mobile version in order to optimize mobile play. The other animations, and game features remain the same as the online version. If you are new to this game, check it out on a desktop computer to see Rook’s dance moves. Once you’ve seen them, the mobile version is great. Game play is faster with the toned down animations.
Rook’s Revenge is certainly worth playing. It is a breath of fresh air being somewhat different to the run-of-the-mill slot games we often see. The game’s sound effects bring added value, making the slot more fun as does Rook, a rather large and agile man. If you have played the desktop version, you may miss Chief Rook’s antics in the mobile version.
The free spins could trigger more frequently, however, the multipliers with the cascading reels feature makes up for it. Not only are exploding spins and cascading reels with multipliers worth it, they make the game more fun to watch.
There is no auto play option in Rook’s Revenge. This means you have to take an active role spinning the reels each time. There is a somewhat low RTP at 94.53%. Overall, Rook’s Revenge is a great game to play.
