Arcane Reel Chaos Slot Review – NetEnt

After announcing more information on ‘Narcos‘ after a year and a half, NetEnt has more releases in the works and look very exciting. The provider has been hit and misses this year but, they have had some great releases with great feedback from the casino community. This new slot is titled ‘Arcane Reel Chaos‘ and has a set release date of ‘16th May 2019‘.

This slot has a very dark theme, which is a very different approach compared to recently released ‘Wild Worlds‘ which plays like a mobile app game. This slot is based around a group of hero mutants who fight against an evil enemy. There are four different characters seen on the slots premium symbols. The theme sounds like a cool Netflix show but can it be a good slot?

Arcane Reel Chaos Base Game

With the dark theme, the artwork is somewhat impressive. The background is an abandoned beat up church with some great detailing. The colouring is very dark, with the reels lighting it up which is a subtle effect to the eyes.

The stot setup is 5 reels by 3 rows, which includes 20 pay lines. The set RTP is 96.81% along with a max win of 1212.5x, which seems so low even for a NetEnt release and is disappointing. The bet sizes start at £0.20 – £20 which is surprising as max bet on NetEnt’s is normally around £100.

Arcane Reel Chaos Slot Review Symbols & Paytable

This slot has 11 symbols in total which includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, and A. These symbols have basic artwork with all of them present on a card background, with scuffed up detailing and a necessary greyish font. There are also 4 premium symbols represented by the 4 characters and a wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols. There is also a scatter symbol.

Arcane Reel Chaos Slot Review Features

There are 4 different features for the base game. During spins, the 4 characters can use their unique abilities to trigger a mini-feature randomly. These are the 4 features that can occur;

  • Flare – Boost wins by 3x-5x.
  • Chrono – Only triggers following a dead spin, Reels respin and continue to until a win is achieved. Multiplier increased by 1x after each respin in this feature.
  • Zero.x – 3-5 random wilds.
  • Psyop – 2-3 fully stacked wild reels.

Arcane Reel Chaos Bonus Feature

There is also a free spins feature which is activated when 3 scatter symbols land on reels 1,3 and 5. This feature is level based on defeating evil alongside the characters. So you start at Level 1 where the boss has 2 health points and a 1x multiplier, then it increases every level. The health points increase by 2 each level and the multiplier by 1x. So for level 4 the highest level the health is 6 and the multiplier is 4x. If you complete all 4 levels, you are awarded more money!


Overall, this slot is unique and fun to play. But it could be a lot more volatile to improve. The game plays very well, and very action packed. NetEnt did an excellent job producing and creating this game but lacks the volatility which can put some people off. Be sure to try the slot out for yourself 16th May on all good casino sites and check us out on Twitch.
