Set against cloud-filled skies, the reels are made up of crystal style heart, diamond, club and spade symbols as well as the gods of rain, ice, wind and lightning. The demonic looking lightning god is the best payer, awarding 10 times your stake if you land 5 on 1 of the game’s 25 paylines. Raging Storms comes with a pair of potentially exciting extras.
Combining Wilds feature - the Storm Wild symbol can appear on reels 1 and 5 only. These move to an adjacent horizontal or diagonal position on each spin. What you’ll be hoping to see are 2 wilds landing on the same position on the same spin. This creates a Super Storm Wild.
The size of this expanded wild depends where on the reels the Storm Wilds collide - they will be 2x2, 2x3, 3x2 or 3x3 sized. Wins that include a Super Storm Wild can also come with a multiplier attached. This can send payouts rocketing by 2x, 3x, 5x or even 10x. After the spin with the Super Storm Wild, the wilds revert back single wilds and continue their path across the reels.
Free Spins Bonus feature - this round is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols on the same spin. You’ll then be offered a selection of free spin and stacked symbol combinations.
- Lightning God = 7, 9 or 12 free spins with Lightning God symbol stacks
- Wind God = 9, 12 or 15 free spins with Wind God symbol stacks
- Ice God = 12, 15 or 20 free spins with Ice God symbol stacks
- Rain God = 15, 20 or 25 free spins with Rain God symbol stacks
Furthermore, and importantly, a mystery multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x or 10 may be awarded on any free spin. A Storm Wild will hit on reels 1 and 5 on each free spin too. If there are any Storm Wilds on display once your free spins are complete, you’ll receive extra free spins until they’ve exited the reels. You could land new Storm Wilds here too to add even more free spins to your total – this could lead to 999 free spins in total!
We’ve not always been bowled over by IGT’s slot games but Raging Storms is definitely one of the US developer’s more accomplished efforts. The visuals are well constructed and the brooding soundtrack fits the theme perfectly. The features stack up very well too. The expanded Super Storm Wilds can create some cracking combinations and the free spins, complete with Storm Wilds and Mystery Multipliers can quickly work their magic.
These weather gods are impressive lot. If you like high variance action, then it’s well worth braving the Raging Storms as you can win 2,500 times your total stake on each spin/free spin. If you like slot games based on gods, Age of the Gods by Playtech cannot be beaten.
