Neon Villains Slot Review – Yggdrasil Gaming
It has been over a month now since I last looked at provider Yggdrasil Gaming and their roadmap for the year. The last game I reviewed by the studio is titled ‘Christmas Plaza DoubleMax‘, which was the Christmas release last year. This slot has an incredible max win capped at 20,000x and a Multiplier that Doubles on every win. In today’s review, we are learning all about ‘Neon Villans’, which was released on January 31st.
This slot has a unique theme centred around a professional team of 4 tricksters. Each trickster with their unique colour of choice for their outfit and visual appearance. The game background displays a dark alley; there are neon lights around the reel set and the Multiplier ladder. Low-paying symbols are card suits with a neon pattern. Premium symbols show us the tricksters, each with glowing eyes and animations when part of a winning combination. Yggdrasil Gaming has nailed the visual aesthetic of this slot and the sound effects to match.
Neon Villains has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows; this includes 234 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96% and a max win capped at 25,000x. You can bet from £0.10 to £40.
Neon Villains Symbols & Pay Table
There are 10 symbols in total; this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by Blue Spades, Green Clubs, Purple Diamonds and Orange Hearts. In addition to these regular symbols is 4 premium symbols, these are represented by a short Blue haired Male, a short Green haired female, a Purple hatted male and a Ginger ponytailed male. Each character is wearing matching coloured clothing, eye contact and other details to match their colour. In addition to these regular symbols are a Wild symbol and a Diamond Free Spins scatter. The highest paying symbol is the Ginger Ponytailed male premium, which pays 25x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all regular symbols.
Neon Villains Features & Mechanics
After every win, all winning symbols are removed, and an extra Wild is added to replace a Winning Symbol position. New symbols will fall to replace all other empty spaces. Every win doubles the active Multiplier, resetting between base game spins and starting at 1x.
There is an option to activate ‘Golden Bet‘, to double your chances of triggering the Free Spins feature during base game spins and increasing your chosen bet size by 20% for each spin.
Landing 3 or more Diamond Free Spin Scatter symbols during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. 3, 4 or 5 Scatters will award 7, 9 or 11 Free Spins. During Free Spins, the Multiplier begins at 1x, and every win doubles the Multiplier. However, the Multiplier will not reset between Free Spins. There are 3 Bonus Buy Options available for this Free Spins feature. 100x = 7 Free Spins, 200x = 9 Free Spins and 500x = 11 Free Spins.
I am a big fan of this slot and enjoy the gameplay. The Wild addition after each win is exciting when trying to build up the Multiplier. The Golden Bet allows you to naturally land the Free Spins feature easier, and there are options for Bonus Buys. I think the higher buys are not worth the price; paying up to 500x for 11 Free Spins compared to 7 spins for 100x is not worth the risk. During Free Spins, the Multiplier does not reset and multiply your wins by some insane numbers. Be sure to try out the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
