Conan the Barbarian is a famous character in the world of entertainment as he has had a number of different forms of media produced. From games to movies, books to TV shows, Conan has been hugely popular for players.
Thus, it should be no surprise that NetEnt have decided to take the plunge and bring the Barbarian to the online slot game world with their Conan title. Indeed, following a branded method can be something that works well and this is a game that should provide players with plenty of entertainment.
There is plenty that players need to know about this game, though, so reading our Conan slot game review should be a must before diving into this game!
Although there is a Conan Free Play version available, players are able to get spinning with real money from as little as €0.20. Hi-rollers can place bets as high as €200 as well, therefore providing something for bettors of all wagering requirements. Players can spin the reels automatically via the ‘Autoplay’ button at the bottom of the grid, whilst there is also the option to make the reels spin faster!
Continuing what would appear to be a good start, NetEnt have built this game with six reels that each have four rows. There are 24 paylines available to form winning combinations and these can be made from either side of the grid as they have implemented a win-both-ways system.
Keeping in line with the theme, the Conan slot game has a number of icons available that represent everything a barbarian may encounter. The low-value icons are coins with animals on them, with a snake, a lion and a falcon all available. The mid-range payouts come from the grappling hooks, the swords and the helmets whereas collecting the characters in the game will provide bigger rewards.
Unsurprisingly, Conan is the most rewarding as six of him on one payline will provide players with a reward of 6x their bet.
This is the part of our Conan slot game review that needs to be read thoroughly to ensure the gameplay experience can be as enjoyable and as seamless as possible as there are an abundance of bonus features available to players.
The first of these features is the ‘Tower Wilds’. These appear on reels one and two and have the ability to cover the reels (partially or completely) and also have the power to substitute all icons on the paytable except for the Scatter.
The ‘Mystery Symbols’ feature is available on reels three and four and these will appear either stacked or singular. These icons can also transform into any symbol on the grid but they are unable to copy the Scatter, the Tower Wild or the Battle Wild.
Players who can get a fully stacked Mystery Symbol on either of the reels are then able to trigger the ‘Mystery Multiplier’ feature. These are worth between 3x and 7x the bet value but if a Tower Wild or a Battle Wild also appear, then the ‘Thoth Amon’ feature is activated. Between three and six Mystery Symbols will then be placed on the grid in random positions and further enhance the opportunity of winning big rewards!
The ‘Battle Wilds’ feature is found on reels five and six and these icons have the ability to expand and take over three adjacent positions on the reels. They also can substitute other symbols, except for the Scatter.
The final feature is the ‘Three Free Spins’ feature and this involves the Scatters. Three free spins are not awarded, but there are three different free spin games available. Players will need to land at least three Scatters, though, in order to choose which game they want to play. Three Scatters will provide 10 free spins, whereas four, five and six of them will reward players with 15, 25 or 50 free spins respectively!
Each of the reels can be linked together via the ‘Linked Reels’ feature and this will then see each of them show the same icons in an effort to provide bigger rewards.
In addition to being able to choose which game they play, the Linked Reels feature will be activated, as well. The games are as follows:
City of Thieves – This game will see Tower Wilds appear on each of the reels and they will all expand to either cover a reel fully or in part.
Temple of the Serpent – The Mystery Symbols – either singular or stacked – will come into play and the ‘Mystery Multiplier’ feature can be triggered. If players are able to land between five and nine of the icons, though, the ‘Thoth Amon’ feature will be activated and players will receive an extra three to six mystery icons in random positions.
Walls of Tarantia – This final option will see players receive Battle Wilds on the grid in order to record potentially big wins, with each of them being able to cover up to three positions on the reels in a sideways move.
