Based around the Great Northern War of 1709 between Sweden and Russia, this Poltova slot provides you with the chance to spin and emerge on the winning side.
The full title of this Elk slot is Poltova Flames of War. As it’s loosely based around the Battle of Poltova, they have gone to great lengths to produce a theatrical introduction as you open the slot to immerse you back to a time when cannons blasted, and the infantry marched on.
The graphics and symbols depict the scenes of the cavalry, white horses ridden into battle along with the explosive power of the artillery in the cannons and the musket shooting infantry as the high paying symbols.
You’ll also find the Poltova slot logo as the wild which substitutes for all other symbols across the 5×4 reels, except of course for the Bonus Lion.
Then the A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols bring up the rear as the lowest paying ones to provide you with some smaller yet well deserved wins.
This 5 reels, Poltova slot with 40 ways to win provides you with the chance in the base game to come up with some bigger wins. And thats thanks to the Marching Reels feature.
If you manage to get 4 of the same symbols on a reel, you will have formed a combat arm and have triggered the Marching Reels. This is where rows two and three on the left of the combat arm will transform into the same symbols.
Not only that but you will also be awarded a free re-spin, and if the same combat arm symbols appear to the right of the combat arm, you will get another re-spin until there are no more.
What’s even better here is that if you form a combat arm to the right of the existing one which is of a higher value than the previous, all the other symbols will change to the higher value ones forming even bigger wins.
How much can you win here? Well we’ve had some decent 20x – 35x our total bet wins during this feature which triggers quite often, but we’ve also walked away with only a around 2 – 5x our bet.
It all depends on how far to the right the combat arm is formed and which of the cavalry, artillery or infantry forms it.
This is where the game gets a little more interesting, and where you can win the max 180,000 top prize.
You can trigger these Poltova slot free spins by finding 3 of the golden bonus lions across reels 2, 3 or 4.
When you do you will be awarded with 3 free spins with the bonus lions that triggered them acting as sticky wilds.
As you spin your free spins, if you manage to get more wild lions, you will be awarded an extra free spin for each one.
We’ve rarely managed to get more than 6 free spins, but there’s a potential for 20 and a whole screen full of wilds.
It has taken us a good 100 or more spins of the Poltova video slot base game to trigger these free spin games and they have proven to be somewhat disappointing at times; around 17x our bet being our best outcome so far.
That could be that we are just unlucky, seeing as this has the potential for a huge 1800x your total bet victorious win.
Built with mobile casinos in mind the Poltova mobile slot provides you with the same great immersive experience as the online slot machine.
Great graphics, sounds, and storyline is pleasing on the eye, and with a 96.4% return to player rate can be pleasing on the wallet too.
But beware; this video slot does have a high variance nature about it with the chance to win little and come away from the main bonus game, the Flames of War free spins disappointed more often than not.
However, much like the other Elk slots, including Taco Brothers and DJ Wild, you’ll get some betting strategies to play with if you so wish. These can not only add some more strategic game play to your spins, but also an added air of excitement that can pay off big.
Overall if you are a fan of historical slot themes, then we recommend that you give this Poltova slot machine a spin, and if you don’t like it you can always try out some of our other video slots online and on mobile.Play Now at Vera&John »
