Hello Casino has recently added NetEnt’s newly refreshed version of the popular 243-way slot Victorious MAX, for those unaware NetEnt has several titles where the player gets the option to tweak the variance and volatility of the slot, basically more risk for more potential rewards using the MAX version of the game.
This time around they have selected the popular Victorious slot which it its default form was a very solid 243-way slot that was capable of producing some nice wins already, selecting the MAX version which can be toggled on and off will give you a 6x multiplier during the bonus round instead of the regular 3x, and the symbols will generally pay more too, most noticeably on the highest paying symbols and 5 of a kind wins. Boasting wins of up to 7000x stake the highest paying symbol has been given a major boost in win potential!
Of course there are going to be some negatives to counteracts these boosts to win potential, so things like base game and free spins hit frequency and bonus frequency will have been tweaked also to balance the gameplay and overall RTP, in essence, the option is for you to decide whether you want more to play a more risky/volatile offering for more potential rewards or you are happy with the regular gameplay offered by Victorious.
The regular game has been out for several years so we have focused our playtests completely on the new MAX version for this review, base gameplay feels very similar even with the MAX setting selected although we did struggle to get regular bonus triggers a little more than the original version, but since the bonus round can be triggered by a combination of scatters and wilds we didn’t encounter any prolonged periods of waiting for a bonus round.
A feature we always liked from the original was the ability to earn more free spins with more scatters or wilds, Victorious was one a few slots where a 5 scatter trigger wasn’t too rare to actually get given that wilds can assist with the triggering.
