Alpha Eagle Slot Review – Hacksaw Gaming
It has been over a month now since my last Hacksaw Gaming slot review; the latest was for the game titled ‘Forest Fortune’, which has a max win capped at 10,000x and a Free Spins feature with special symbols. Today we are learning all about ‘Alpha Eagle’, which is available to play now!
This slot uses a theme perfect for wildlife lovers, with the focus on eagles in cold winter weather. The game background shows off tall mountains covered in snow, trees and blizzard winds. Low paying symbols are the typical 10 to A. Premiums are represented by feathers, eggs and Eagles. Visuals show off a unique detailed art style and a vibrant colour scheme.
Alpha Eagle has a setup of 5 reels by 4 rows; this includes 20 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.26% and a max win capped at 10,000x. You can bet from £0.10 to £100.
Alpha Eagle Pay Table & Symbols
There are 16 symbols in total; this includes 5 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K and A. There are also 5 premium symbols; these are represented by Feathers, Fish, Owls, Hatched Eggs and Eagles. In addition to these regular symbols is a Wild Symbol, S’n’S Scatter Symbol, Golden Stack’N’Sync Symbol, Free Spins Symbol, Eagle Link Bonus Symbol and Golden Eagle Symbol. The highest paying symbol is the Eagle Premium, which pays 25x for 5 across a pay line. The Wild Symbol substitutes for all regular symbols.
Alpha Eagle Features
The reel the S’n’S Scatter Symbol lands on is copied onto up to 4 reels and these reels are then stacked with one kind of symbol. A Respin is awarded, with the stacked reels synced to each other. Landing another Scatter during this Respin will repeat this process. Stacking on additional reels, Sync them and award an additional Respin. The Stacked Symbol and the stack amount are shown by the symbol and stars in the top right corner above the reel set. Each filled star represented one-quarter of the reels.
Landing the Golden S’n’S Scatter Symbol activates the Stack’n’Sync Feature and guarantees all 5 reels are stacked. Only premiums and wilds can be stacked. This symbol also activates a global multiplier that is applied to any wins on the respin. Multipliers can between 2x to 100x.
Landing 3 or more scatters during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. With 1 Free Spin is awarded for each scatter that lands. Up to 20 Free Spins can be awarded. Free Spins increase the chance of landing S’n’S and Golden S’n’S symbols.
Eagle Link Feature
Landing 3 Eagle Claw Scatter Symbols will trigger the Eagle Link feature. There is a Collect Phase and Pay Out Phase. During the Collect Phase, all landed Eagle, and Golden Eagle symbols are sticky, with 3 spins. Spins reset back to 3 when an Eagle symbol lands. When 3 spins occur without a new Eagle Symbol landing in a row, the Collect Phase will end.
Every landed Golden Eagle Symbol activates the Eagle Link Feature. The Eagle link connects to all Eagle symbols that land vertically or horizontally adjacent to an Eagle symbol already connected. When the Collect Phase ends, all Eagle Symbols that are not connected are removed.
Overall, I think this slot is perfect for people who love high variance and a range of unique mechanics in one game. With a max win capped at 10,000x and Eagle Link Feature with ReSpins. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
