We Check Out the Exclusive Leo Vegas Slot Release From Yggdrasil – Avatars Gateway Guardians!

LeoVegas Casino has recently added an exlcusive slot release from Yggdrasil Gaming to their casino titled Avatars Gateway Guardians, if you are looking for something a little different from the norm then this slot may well catch your eye!

Regular slot reels have been done away with and replaced with spinning segments, effectively there are  6 paylines in the base game and you win when matching symbol segments line up in one of these sections, the slot does a good job of highlighting potential wins as the symbols line up so it’s actually quite easy to spot the wins and understand the gameplay.

The main feature where the biggest wins can occur is the Hot Spot feature, in the base game this is the top highlighted section, when wins occur in this segment you are awarded random multipliers to the initial win, these will keep being awarded until you land on the collect symbol.

Potentially the Hot Spot feature can award multipliers up to 101x so base wins can be increased massively, generally though expect them to be multipliers from in the 2x up 15x range which can still result in some very big wins from the premium symbols.

The main bonus round is triggered by landing 3 Free Spins segments anywhere on this slot, if however these segments land in the Hot Spot area then you will be awarded extra hot spot areas during the free spins basically giving you extra chances of getting multiplied wins.

There are a couple of extra segments added during the bonus round, and landing all 3 free spins segments in the Hot Spot area will highlight every section during the bonus round giving you the best chance of multiplied wins.

Whilst the gameplay might look and sound difficult to understand, as this definitely doesn’t look like a regular slot, it is actually quite simple once you have played it.

Special Features

Hot Spot Feature

The Hot Spot section is marked with a white glowing edge at the top in the base game, when you land a win in this segment you are awarded a multiplier also.

The multipliers can be 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x or 20x and can accumulate a maximum of 5 times or the collect symbols lands in view, the maximum multiplier is therefore 101x which is a 20x multiplier applied 5 times!

Free Spins

The Free Spins are triggered by landing 3 parts of a Free Spin symbol anywhere on the slot and awards 10 free spins with an increased 8 sections instead of the regular 6 from the base game.

Landing the Free Spins segments in the Hot Spot area will add extra hot spots to the slot as follows,

  • 0 Free Spin symbol parts in the Hot Spot triggers Free Spins with 2 Hot Spots
  • 1 Free Spin symbol parts in the Hot Spot triggers Free Spins with 4 Hot Spots
  • 2 Free Spin symbol parts in the Hot Spot triggers Free Spins with 6 Hot Spots
  • 3 Free Spin symbol parts in the Hot Spot triggers Free Spins with 8 Hot Spots

Overall Opinions

The Avatars Gateway Guardians Slot certainly offers some new and interesting gameplay in comparison to a regular slot and once we had worked out the mechanics to this machine it’s actually a very straightforward release.

Given the limited paylines, this slot will probably offer more long term appeal to players who like the simpler more classic slots as with just the Hot Spot feature there aren’t too many special features to look forward too.

In our playtests, we did have some nice multiplied wins which resulted in bonus rounds well over 100x stake with a 25x multiplier being applied to a premium symbol making up most of the win but didn’t get close to the maximum 101x multiplier!

The main issue we had with this slot was a cosmetic one with how the segments are randomly created with each spin which detracted from the gameplay on a personal level for us, there is no way around this given the design of this machine, but to have 2 premium symbols tease a big win, and see no matching symbols on the outer segments detracted from the gameplay for us, the illusion that you might have been close to a big win simply isn’t there!

Overall worth a play if you are seeking something totally different from the norm, possibly not a long term slot but worth a few hundred spins to check out something totally new.
