The game has an unusual layout of 3-4-3-4-3. The grid is set on a sci-fi, fantasy place like taken from a comic book or animation series. The background reveals a bare land in orange and the air is filled in purple with a bit of pink. The game menu is on the right of the grid. On the zig-zag reels, you can land 4 card royals styled in comics design. There are also nunchucks, ninja stars, handguns and freaking Gatling guns. These 4 Aurora’s weapons are the premiums.
Aurora is the heroine in the slot appearing in normal size, partially or fully stacked. There are also 4 monsters as the 4 wild symbols she fights against. The images are precise, clear and detailed. They are all cartoonish in comic book fashion and in bright and warm colours. The free spins play in different reels and places.
The pay-table consists of 4 card royals in comic book style, 4 weapons of Aurora and herself. There are also 4 types of wild symbols and a scatter.
The game is centred around Aurora hunting the 4 beasts. They are Treasure Tick, Jewel Jaws, Diamond Dweller, Fortune Flyer and Cash Crawler. The beasts are all wild symbols. Treasure Tick is the Expanding Wild symbol. Jewel Jaws is the Stacked Wild. Diamond Dweller is the Sticky Wild Stack. Fortune Flyer rewards with Random Wild. Cash Crawler is both a Cash Prize and a Stacked Wild.
Two of the low-value symbols – the J and Q return 0.10x, 0.30x and 1x bet for 3, 4 and 5 matching symbols on a pay-line. The K and A return also equally – 3, 4 and 5 grant 0.20, 0.60 and 1.50 times your stake.
The premiums include 4 different weapons of Aurora. One of them is the nunchucks which is useless in a fight but the typical 90s weapon. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of it on a pay-line return 0.40, 1 and 2.50 times your bet. The 2 ninja stars pay 0.50, 1.20 and 3.50 times your stake. The handgun grants 0.60x, 1.50x and 4.50x bet for 3, 4 and 5 symbols on a pay-line. The Gatling gun pays 0.80, 2 and 6 times your stake for 3, 4 and 5 symbols on a line.
The most rewarding symbol of all is, of course, Aurora. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of it in a spin on any of the 40 pay-lines returns 1.20, 3.50 and 12.50 times your stake. This is the only symbol that can land as a normal, partially or fully stacked ensuring you larger wins.
There are 4 types of wild symbols. These are the Regular, Stacked, Expanding and Sticky Wild Stack symbol. All 4 types of wild symbols substitute for the rest of the symbols except the scatter and other wilds. When substituting for other symbols, the wilds pay for the highest possible winning combination on a line.
In the base game on any spin there is a chance that you get any of the 4 randomly triggered features:
Cash Prize – from the Expanding Wilds or Stacked Wilds;
Sticky Wild Stack – a fully wild reel with a sticky Diamond Dweller monster symbol. It awards +1 free spin;
These get triggered from the 4 wild symbols of the 4 monsters Aurora fights against in the game. You can randomly have activated at least one Expanding Wild or Stacked Wild. The Expanding Wild is the Treasure Tick symbol and it pays 1.50 times your bet. The Stacked Wild is the Jewel Jaws and its payout is 2 times your bet.
After each spin, one reel can get marked by chance. If there is either a Stacked Wild or an Expanding Wild on that marked reel, it turns into a Sticky Wild Stack. The whole reel then becomes the Diamond Dweller monster. This symbol sticks on that reel for the rest of the Sub Free Spins feature. When you have triggered a Sticky Wild Stack, you will win 1 extra Free Spin.
The scatters appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the base game. Landing 3 scatters in a spin anywhere on the reels triggers the Free Spins feature selection. You will have the following 3 options to choose from:
the Sub Free Spins – 5 free spins with high volatility, during which you can win up to 5,000 times your stake;
the Danger Zone – 8 free spins with a medium level of volatility. During them you can win up to 2,000 times your stake;
the Sandstorm – 12 free spins with low volatility, in which you can grab up to 1,000 times your stake;
If you prefer high volatility slots, the Sub Free Spins is a good choice. You will receive 5 Free Spins. During them, a Stacked or an Expanding wild landed on a marked reel turns the whole reel into a Sticky Wild Stack. The reel remains such for the rest of the Sub Free Spins. If you have triggered a Sticky Wild Stack, you will be rewarded with an extra free spin as well. The max win per free spin during this highly volatile bonus game is 5,000x bet.
Choosing the Danger Zone gives you 8 Free Spins. During them, one of the Random Wild features will ensure between 1 and 5 regular wild symbols. The wilds can appear on any position. The volatility is medium and the max win per spin is 2,000x bet.
If you choose the Sandstorm, you will relish in 12 Free Spins. During them, the Expanding wild can land and award 1.50x bet. Also, the Stacked Wild can land and grant 2x bet. The volatility of this bonus round is low and up to 1,000 times your stake per free spin can be yours.
If you don’t have the luck to get 3 scatters and land only 2 in a spin, you will activate 1 Scatter Re-spin. One of the reels (1, 3 or 5) without a scatter will respin once. During the respin, Expanding Wild symbols don’t appear. This respin gives you one more chance to trigger free games.
Aurora Beast Hunter is full of extra features, random events and chances to score wins. You can choose one of 3 bonus games with varying volatility, modifiers and max win per spin. This cartoonish game with comics-style graphics ensures a pleasant time and a lot of action. Play after the release at the end of June 2020.
