Slots have come thick and fast in 2018, and even though we are seeing less frequent new releases as the summer has passed, they are still a major part of the world of online Gaming in Canada. The summer represented the pinnacle for Canadian slots gaming, with some of the biggest providers in the industry wheeling out their exciting new slots titles for the whole world to enjoy.
There is no question that Red Tiger Gaming is one of the leading slots providers in the country, and they have been behind some of the most exciting and enjoyable slots games in recent times. In fact, last month they released one of the best slots offerings of the year with their stunning Wild Circus slot game. And now, with great anticipation, the company has released their newest slot offering – Totem Lightning: Power Reels. The game has been released following Red Tiger’s partnership with White Hat Gaming, a link that CEO Gavin Hamilton said, “It’s fantastic to go live with White Hat Gaming, in a partnership which will help us significantly increase our international reach.”
Now, Totem Lightning: Power Reels is one of the most unique and engaging slots on the market. It uses 8 vertical columns with cascading symbols that can be utilised for big wins. These cascading symbols are hugely important when it comes to the unique style of gameplay the slot offers.
One of the best things about this slot is its speed. With 30 paylines and the cascade effect, this could easily have been a slow and dull affair. When players are actively engaged, they will want to keep an eye out for the gold and blue eagle totem symbols, which are worth up to 150x the original stake of the bet.
When it comes to noticeable features, this game has the Totem Lightning feature, which happens when low-value combos are made, and the symbols are removed from the screen. This is when new symbols fall into place, and there is the chance that they may form a winning combo. Getting a streak here is a good way of earning some promising wins, but this is dwarfed by a huge amount of low-value wins, meaning that the average wins are not very impressive.
The paylines are obscure and can prove to be frustrating if players are not used to them. However, one of the best things about the game is the fact that it has a feature where players are rewarded with 7,777x their original stake if they manage to get a full screen of the highest-paying symbol. This is, of course, one of the most epic features out there, the problem is that it is incredibly difficult to achieve this!
Totem Lightning: Power Reels is a sequel to the original Totem Lightning game, and in many ways, it falls just short of its older brother. Sure, it feels like a bigger, bolder game by comparison, but it also a little too basic and restrained. It feels too difficult to make big winnings, and there are next to no special features. Earlier in the summer, Red Tiger Gaming scooped an award for innovative slot Rocket Men, but this game won’t be winning any awards any time soon.
