Annihilator Slot Review – Play’n Go
Play’n Go are unstoppable currently with game announcements and slot releases that follow. new game ‘That’s Rich‘ has just been released across sites and now we await feedback from streamers and the casino community. I also recently reviewed ‘Agent Destiny‘, which showed the studio could spice up their visuals and use something less saturated as a theme. However, this new game announcement shows a common theme choice. Next from Play’n Go is new slot titled ‘Annihilator‘ , set to release April 23rd across all sites.
Annihilator is a Canadian thrash metal rock band who were founded back in the 1980s. There are 4 band members and they are still active today. Play’n Go seem to love creating slots around bands from around the world, with a long list of games already released. The band’s most recent album was released in January 2020 titled Ballistic Sadistic. The game could be to help their newest album or just a fun collaboration idea.
The slot background is a dull abandoned mansion, with a dark setting and simple thunder/lightning effects. The theme is mainly shown is the symbol artwork, particularly the wilds. I feel like the visuals could have been a lot better to show off the band.
Annihilator has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 10 set pay lines. This game is medium variance due to the set RTP of 96.20% and max win capped at 5,000x. You can bet from £0.10 – £100.
Annihilator Symbols & Paytable
There are 11 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K and A. There are also 3 premium symbols, these are represented by spooky picture frames, guitars and stone sculptures. In addition to these regular symbols is a guitarist wild, devil scatter and fun place scatter. The highest paying symbol is the guitarist wild, which pays 40x for a line of 5. This wild substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols.
There are a lot of features to talk about, let’s start with the ‘Set The World On Fire‘ feature. Triggered by landing 3 devil scatters during one spin. This will award 8 free spins, before each spin, the expanded wild moves sideways and a fire trail of 1 or 3 symbols high is created. Each scatter symbol awards 2 additional spins up to 50.
The second feature to talk about is ‘Fun Place‘, awarded when you land 3 bonus symbols during one spin. Select dolls to reveal hidden prizes like bet multipliers until an end prize. You can find the Set The World On Fire feature.
The last feature is the ‘In Command Feature‘, triggered randomly. Wild symbols expand to fill the reel, respins occur until there is a win if more wilds land they will also expand. 1 wild is guaranteed to land.
Overall, I think the game plays well and has good volatility on offer. However, I do think the visuals could have been better to show the band theme more. Features help keep the game entertaining and help the potential on offer. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
