Relax Gaming offers a wide range of casino games by several Games development studios which are aggregated on their platform, but they also build and launch their own games. Snake Arena video slot was released on the 7th of January 2020 and is in fact developed by Relax Gaming. The concept of the game will somehow remind you of the snake arcade maze game, which was first seen in 1976, but gained a lot of popularity on the old Nokia phones. If you remember this Snake game you are probably born before the 90’s! If you feel nostalgic of the good old times, where phone had only a purpose to call, send text messages and perhaps an MMS, a very frustrating way to send a picture, then perhaps Snake Arena will somehow take you back in time. Don’t be fooled by this statement, as the graphis, design as gameplay in this slot has been well crafted and developed in accordance with today’s standards!
Snake Arena comes with a 5 x 5 playing grid and 30 paying lines. There are 2 main game features: Free Spin Rounds and The Wild Chase! The Wild Chase Feature can be randomly activated on any spin during base game. If snake peeks out above one random reel, and the knight peeks out below one of the reels simultaneously, the Wild chase will be activated and award between 1 to 5 Wild Reels (Stacked Wild Reels).
Free Spin Rounds of Snake Arena Slot!
This is by far the most rewarding feature of the game. When the Snake symbol lands on reel 1 and a Knight symbol lands on any reel triggers the free spin rounds are activated. It is quite funny to see the snake, checking the other reels to see if the Knight will stop by. During the free spin rounds the snake will move through the playing grid to eat the Knight, which also adds an extra piece to the snake body. Note that the snake is also a wild substitution symbol. The Knight will always stop on the grid in various positions, which might lead the snake to crash into itself. If this happens the free rounds feature will be completed. The best part is yet to come! If the snake manages to grow and fill the booster bar available on the right hand side, an additional prize, 1,000 x the bet amount will be awarded to the player!
There is also the option to buy Free Spin Rounds by paying 70 times the bet amount. So basically, if you are playing with €1 per spin, you will have to pay €70 in order to force the Free Spin feature. Note that the theoretical payout percentage of the free rounds is set to 96.25%. This is not a guarantee that you will win back such a percentage. Winnings are still calculated on the original bet amount, which in this example we used €1 as a reference. Remember that the RTP is calculated overall and not on the player’s session. I suggest players to trey this feature, buy playing the demo game to have a better understanding on how it works.
Snake Arena Feedback!
Overall this video slot is very charming, engaging and fun to play. The concept of the game is a bit different from other video slots, which in a way, makes it stands out. The RTP is slightly higher than average and the volatility of the game is set to high. Player can bet from as little as 0.10 up to a maximum bet of €100 or equivalent. The highest possible win is set to 2,875 times the bet amount.
