Unibet Casino has just added the latest Aztec themed online slot from Play’n GO titled Phoenix Reborn to their casino, this is a slightly larger reel set machine with a 5×6 reel array but with 40 fixed paylines.
The reel strips are made up of a mixture of Aztec themed low paying symbols along with much higher paying stacked Aztec Warrior symbols and of course a very special Phoenix Wild symbol which when landing in view bursts into flames with a very slick animation and then expands to cover the entire reel (wild reel).
The Phoenix Wild mechanic is the only special base game feature on offer on this slot, fortunately, it does tend to land in view quite frequently so whilst you are generally looking for the bonus scatter triggers, if multiple wilds land in view the base game is definitely capable of throwing out some impressive wins too.
The usual 3 scatters is required for the bonus round with extra scatters awarding more free spins up to a maximum of 20, and during the bonus round things really do heat up with at least 1 guaranteed Phoenix Wild being added to the reels on every single free spin.
The bonus round is really where this slot shines as it only takes a couple of regular wilds to land in view and then with the guaranteed wild reel being added the wins can rack up quickly, add to this that bonus re-triggers occur with just 2 or more scatters too!
Whilst Play’n GO has pitched this as a 10/10 Very High variance game the paytable for the symbols are a little on the low side, but this is countered nicely by the abundance of wild reels on offer during the bonus rounds!
