Primal Spirits Slot Review – Quickspin
It has been a couple of months since I last visited the wonderful studio of Quickspin. This studio has been part of the industry for a long time now, known for its successful games over this time period. Such as the slot series ‘Sticky Bandits‘, which consists of multiple games now. The popular game ‘Big Bad Wolf Megaways’ has an incredible max win of 30,540x. Plus, a well-made IGaming portfolio is getting bigger each year. The last game I reviewed is titled ‘Eastern Emeralds Megaways’, which is an exciting game sequel with a max win capped at 17,800x on offer. Today we are learning all about ‘Primal Spirits’, which is available to play now!
This slot is set in the open woodlands of Native America, under the moonlight and shining stars in the sky. The Thunderbird is trying to summon spirit animals nearby. The enchanted gems will release the spirit of animals onto the reel set. Visually this slot shows off beautifully crafted artwork. The game background shows off an open landscape in the woods, under the night sky and a fireplace below the reel set. The reel set border is carved wood, the multipliers for each colour are displayed on the right pillar, and the spirit animals are displayed on the left pillar. The game background is more subtle compared to the reel set design. Each symbol is vibrant, with detailed artwork and a unique animation for each when part of a win. Quickspin has done an amazing job with this game visually and shows off a lot of unique aspects.
Primal Spirits has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows; this includes 25 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.02% and a max win capped at 8,623x. You can bet from £0.25 to £100.
Primal Spirits Symbols & Pay Table
There are 10 symbols in total; this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by Enchanted Gems in the colours Blue, Green, Purple and Red. There are also 4 premium symbols; these are represented by the spirit animals, Owls, Wolves, Bears and Foxes. In addition to these, regular symbols are a Bonus symbol and a Wild symbol. The highest paying symbol is the Fox premium, which pays 5x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the Bonus Scatter.
Symbols part of winning combinations are removed from the reel set, remaining symbols will drop down, and new symbols fall from above in a tumble to replace empty spaces. Tumbles continue until no more winning combinations occur.
Primal Spirits Features & Mechanics
There is a Symbol Upgrade mini-feature. After each tumble, the top Totem will upgrade any Enchanted Gem of the same colour on the reel to Spirit Animals. The Golden Totem draws the power from all the Enchanted Gems on the reel set and releases all the Spirit Animals.
There is a Colour Multiplier mini-feature. When a Symbol Upgrade is completed, each upgraded symbol on the reel set adds a 1x multiplier to that specific colour multiplier. All wins after any symbols of that colour will be multiplied by the current multiplier of that colour.
Landing 3 or more Bonus Scatters during a base game will trigger the Thunder Free Spins feature. 3, 4 or 5 scatters will award 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins. During spins, Multipliers do not reset between spins. Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters during a Free Spin will award 10, 15 or 20 additional spins. This feature can be purchased for 150x your chosen stake, with 3 to 5 scatters landing on the trigger.
Overall, I think this slot will definitely stand out in the casino market and uses a unique theme for the visual aspects. The game background is a beautiful aesthetically pleasing woodland landscape. The background completely changes when the Free Spins feature is triggered. The pillars on either side of the reel set displays useful information, such as each colours multiplier and active animal spirits. Symbols have a unique design, standing out and showing off detailed art work. Quickspin always stand out with its game visuals and animations created. Now onto the features & mechanics;
There are 2 mini-features, Symbol Upgrade and Colour Multiplier. For Symbol Upgrade the top totem upgrades any enchanted gem of the same colour displayed. The Colour Multiplier will be increased by 1x for each upgraded symbol. The main attraction is the Free Spins feature, with multipliers not resetting between spins and up to 20 Free Spins on retriggers or the initial trigger. Both the base game and Free Spins feature has a lot to offer. With a range of familiar mechanics and fun gameplay. Be sure to try out the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
