Yggdrasil is a company known for producing games that have a distinct visual style.
While they don’t usually bring 3D graphics into the equation, they always have a strong aesthetic appeal for their titles, and that’s definitely the case with the Nirvana mobile slot.
Nirvana is the ultimate spiritual goal in Buddhism and the three goddesses of this slot machine represent that.
This game is designed to take up space on your phone or tablet screen in a smart way with a clear interface at the bottom for manipulating bet sizes, reading your balance and bringing on the next spin.
Nirvana uses five reels and three rows with 20 paylines.
This is a fairly tame layout that’s used a lot. Coin sizes vary from £0.01 to £2 apiece, and this gives players a betting range of £0.20 to £40 per spin.
You can only choose coin sizes, and you can’t choose a number of coins per payline, and that’s a simplification that makes choosing a bet size much easier and intuitive, especially on the mobile interface.
Your account balance and current bet size are also clearly shown on the bottom bar across the screen, and that makes it easier to keep up with what you’re doing when you’re coming in and out of mobile sessions.
There are four cute animals that are used as the main symbols.
The red bird pays 250x for five, the green snake gives 200x, the purple rabbit with horns will earn you 175x, and five of the blue owl symbol picks up 150x.
In addition to this, there are four lower symbols with a red heart gem, a green spade gem, a purple club gem and a light-blue diamond gem.
Because there are relatively few paying symbols in this game, you’ll get a much higher hit-rate than titles that have up to twice as many paying symbols. On top of that, wilds on each reel give you more chances to win.
Two of the free spin symbol will get you a single free spin. Three or more earn 10 free spins.
Four of them earns 1,000 coins, and five picks up a whooping 5,000x coins, which is the largest regular win in the game.
During the free spins, you get to choose from three different extra features to add more value to the game.
More features can be added during re-triggers, and it’s possible to get all three of these features going at the same time: wild seeds, mega reels and nudge reels.
The Nirvana mobile slot is a good example of a relatively average theme being used to create a very high-quality game.
This is something that Yggdrasil is very good at doing.
This game has a low-volatility normal game with a high hit-rate, and it’s perfectly complemented by the chances to win huge payouts in the free spins bonus feature.
