The epic battle of good versus evil is coming straight to the reels in this exciting NetEnt release. Titled Archangels: Salvation, the video slot launched in 2018 is not only stunning in terms of graphics, but it also offers numerous opportunities to go grab fantastic prizes. Players will definitely benefit from 2x2 Wilds landing in the Hot Spot areas and activating the Heaven or the Hell features. The former may reward stacks of Wild, while the latter can give you up to 16 regular Wilds. We mustn’t forget to mention the Free Spins round, with up to 25 spins up for grabs, while increasing the Hot Spot areas will also increase the potential for getting Wilds on each free spin.
As soon as you start playing this game, you’ll notice its unusual layout, which features 6 reels, 12 rows, and 100 paylines. In order to choose your wager, you’ll need to adjust the coin value ranging from $0.01 to $0.50 and the bet level. Depending on your choice, you can wager as low as $0.40 or place up to $200 per spin. The list of options includes the Max Bet, which is pretty much self-explanatory and the Auto Play. Click the latter to set the number of automatically played spins, just sit back and watch the reels spin. If you want to set the reels in motion by yourself, all it takes to do so is to hit the Spin button.
The reels are populated with the symbols including the playing card suits, skulls, lions, hoods and helmets. You’ll also encounter an angel and a demon, which are the game’s highest paying icons.
The 2x2 Wild symbol can substitute for all other icons except for Scatter, but its full powers are activated with the help of the Hot Spot areas. There are two Hot Spot areas - one consisting of the top 2 rows, and the second one consisting of the 2 bottom rows. Each Hot Spot has a Wild feature of its own: the Hell feature brings from 8 to 16 singleton Wilds, while the Heaven feature can get 2 or 4 stacks of Wild symbols. The features can be retriggered if a stack of Wilds or a singleton Wild land in the Hot Spot area again.
Land a minimum of 3 Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger the game's Free Spin round. The Scatters appear 2-high on the reels, and depending on their number, players will get from 10 up to 25 spins. The only downside of this feature is that you won't be able to retrigger it. During the Free Spins round, the Hot Spot areas may increase to 3 rows, which will definitely make 2x2 Wilds land easier in them. This way, and with a bit of luck, you may grab up to 16 Wilds or stacked Wilds on each and every spin.
Archangels: Salvation is a medium-variance game with an average return to player (RTP) of 96.08%. It may appear complicated at first, but it’s actually really simple once you get to know it. Its Wild features can be very rewarding, especially during the Free Spins round, where you may get payouts worth 375 times your bet.
