There’s a futuristic look to the design in Moirai Blaze. Blues, pinks and purples dominate the colour scheme. In the background, you’ll see a planet and an assortment of unusual plants. Watching over things is the goddess Lakshmi. It’s all rather well done.
The 7x7 reel grid is made up of 7 brightly coloured orbs. Land 5 or more that match to create a winner. Those symbols are then removed and new ones drop in and replace them. These tumbles continue as long as a new winning combination is created.
These orbs offer payouts of up to 20 times your stake depending on how many are in the cluster. There’s also a wild that replaces all other standard symbols. There are 2 special symbols that can deliver an extra:
- Replacer - when this hits, it does 1 of 2 things. It can either replace all symbols in a diagonal cross shape with matching symbols or it transforms all symbols of one type into another.
- Exploder - this blows up all symbols in a cross or diagonal shape or all symbols of one matching type. The symbols left are always wild.
If you land wins that total 100 symbols during a single series of tumbles then you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature. You can keep tab of your total by looking at Lakshmi to the side of the reels. On offer here are 15 free spins. Hope to see the Replacer, Exploder and Wild symbol during the feature as they increase a multiplier by 1x whenever they hit. The Replacer also transforms into a wild rather than a standard symbol during the free spins.
With its futuristic visuals, sweeping soundtrack and unorthodox game engine, Moirai Blaze looks quite a complex game at first view. It’s actually pretty straightforward. You can expect to see plenty of smaller wins in the base game. The best chances arise in the Free Spins feature thanks to the expanding multipliers – you can win up to 6,000 times your stake on every free spin.
Moirai Blaze is an unusual game. If you’re looking for a tumbling reels slot game that offers something a little different, then it fills the bill rather nicely. If you want something more straightforward, Blood Queen (also by Iron Dog Studio) is my personal favourite.
