Poltova is a great themed game that has been created by Elk Studios and the entire game is based on the battle of Poltova, where the Russians battled the Swedes that lead to the decline of Swedish power. The game is quite entertaining and as a title from Elk Studios, it contains some of the most amazing graphics and animations seen on any slot. This game is played on a five reel layout and there are 40 paylines. The reels are transparent and show a bit of the aftermath of the battle in the background.
When players choose to play the game, they can enjoy it for free before they place wagers. They will then have the ability to select from various coin denominations to control bet amounts, which range from $0.20 to $100 per spin. While this game does not feature any progressive jackpot, there is a nice base game payout, though most of the winnings will be generated through the bonus features.
The game logo will act as the wild and this can take the place of all other symbols. The wild will surely help players create more wins on the game. Unfortunately, it does not take the place of the scatter, which is the lion icon, the symbol needed to trigger the main bonus.
Three or more lion scatters on the middle three reels will start the free spins and players will get three spins. The triggering lions will remain in place for these spins and will act as a wild, so there are great chances to collect some handsome payouts. This feature cannot be retriggered, so players will hope for more wilds to appear for the largest wins.
There is also a Marching Reels feature and this is triggered when stacked infantry, cavalry or artillery symbols appear. This will offer a single respin and any additional matching symbols to the right of the stacked symbols will move to the left and the stacked icons will move one reel to the right. The entire process will continue until there are no additional matching symbols that appear.
Poltova is a great game with an attractive theme. Though the RTP is just 96.4%, the game is capable of offering some outstanding payouts when played for real money. Elk studios has gone all out with the design and presentation of the game, creating a slot that will not just visually entertain players, but will handsomely reward them as well.
