By dictionary definition, renegades are those who choose to desert or betray an organization, country, or set of principles. It makes sense then, that this brand new slot from NYX features one of their most unique and unconventional themes yet.
Renegades celebrates the adventures of five different female characters, each from a different era and world. This sets players up for an epic narrative, but that's only half of the fun. The slot also comes complete with a multitude of bonus features, 243 ways to win and chances to win extra spins.
Renegades is a five reel slot with 243 ways to win and it's playable from 40p per spin, up to £80 per spin. This means the minimum bet is a little higher than most slots, but the fact that the slot pays all ways means that there's more opportunities to create a winning combination on a single spin. Brought to us by NextGen Gaming, the slot is available across all devices including iOS and Android.
The minute you load up Renegades, it's obvious that NextGen have put a lot of effort into the game, creating five different characters and themes. Set against a snow covered mountain top,symbols on the reels include five different coloured jewels, and five female renegades; Freya Valkryie of Valhalla, Valda Dragonslayer, Harriet Hellstorm, Raffaela Blaze and Ivy Sabreclaw. All symbols in the game can also appear different sized at any point, stacked horizontally or vertically.
Overall, Renegades offers players a beautiful, original theme and some decent gameplay features. Furthermore, the slot also boasts a decent RTP of 96.37% and we'd classify it as a medium to high volatility game. This means that whilst you may play for a while without a win, when you do it'll definitely be worth the wait!
Within the base game, Renegades boasts both wilds and special mega symbols. The wild is the fire symbol, and it works like a regular wild in that it will substitute for all other symbols to create a winning combination. It is, however, also the highest paying symbol of the game, giving you 250 coins for five across a payline.
Renegades' Mega Symbols can also show up at any point in the base game. As we mentioned earlier, all symbols have the ability to appear stacked but adjacent reels can also lock together and spin as one, allowing a mega symbol to appear which can be up to 3×3 symbols in size. These huge symbols are the key to creating big, rewarding wins.
Renegades also boasts an extra spins round, which is triggered when three or more of the ice scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. You'll receive eight spins to start with and an added multiplier too. Three scatter symbols will give you a 2x multiplier, four scatters will give you a 5x multiplier and five scatter symbols will reward you with a huge 10x multiplier. You can also re-trigger the feature on any extra spins, giving you 16 extra spins in total.
When the extra spins round begins, one of the five renegade character symbols will be chosen at random. This will then be the only high value symbol on the reels, as well as the wild, scatter, and jewel symbols. This means that you've got an increased chance of creating winning combinations on each spin.
In our opinion, Renegades is probably one of the best NextGen slots ever, when it comes to design. Not only does the slot perform incredibly well on all devices, but we also think the game boasts one of the most original and well developed themes we've seen in a long time. Furthermore, the graphics are high quality and the soundtrack is dramatic and engaging.
Renegades is one of our favourite games NextGen have ever produced – and no we're not just saying that. We think that the game's great features and compelling story line will make it appealing to all sorts of different players, and we love the enhanced wins you can pick up courtesy of the Mega Symbols. The game is on the higher end of the volatility scale however, but we just think this adds to the excitement!
Renegades will be available at Fable Casino from the 2nd January 2018.
