Microgaming Releases Innovative Anderthals™ Online Slot
Anderthals is one of JustForTheWins’s latest video slots released April 2020 in conjunction with Microgaming. This epic cave era themed slot adventure gives casino players 40 pay-lines on 5x4 reels that come with a brand-new never seen before feature trigger!
Players will be taking a trip back in time to a prehistoric age when cavemen and cavewomen may well have walked the earth with dinosaurs. On the reels, cave dwellers Andy and Annie Anderthal are the slot’s hosts. Both of these characters have seen their ancient way of life unwittingly finding its way to modern-day desktop and mobile devices!
The gameplay comes complete with amazingly colorful artwork, a barrage of animations, action-packed reel spins, and a catchy theme song that you will find difficult not to bob your head along to. With the slot’s amazing design also comes imaginative gameplay with stacked regular symbols, stacked wilds, expanding wild reels, free spins, spin bet multipliers, and wild card symbol multipliers all of which are triggered by a new concept coined ‘feature symbols’.
Instead of scatter and bonus symbols triggering pre-set features, the Anderthals' gameplay incorporates ‘feature symbols’ designed to surprise players every time they land on the reels. It is also an easy concept to grasp giving players a brand-new and easy to understand feature trigger.
At the top of all five reels, there are five positions called ‘feature spots’. As the reels spin, the symbols on the feature spots whirl in position to eventually reveal any one of the slot’s featured awards. This also makes it impossible to predict which features may trigger adding to the excitement.
On any given spin the ‘feature spots’ could reveal:
- 1x or 2x multipliers of the total spin bet
- Free spins
- Expanding wilds
- Additional wilds added to the reels
- x2 and x3 wild symbol multipliers
Although the ‘feature spots’ visually change after every spin, features will only be awarded when triggered by landing 2 ‘feature symbols’ on the reels at the same time. When this happens, the corresponding features at the top of the reels trigger. If this is the 2x bet multiplier above reel 2 and an expanding wild above reel 5, then your spin bet will be doubled, and reel 5 will change all positions into wild symbols followed by a re-spin!
As for the Anderthals slot’s stacked symbols, the hosts of this stone-age world, Mr and Mrs Andethal, are the third and fourth highest paying symbols. They give away 5x the spin bet, and possibly 15x should one of the slot’s x3 multiplying wild symbols complete either symbol combination.
For the biggest wins on the Anderthal slot title, players will be vying for the dinosaur wild and the Anderthals’ logo symbol combinations. Both can mix and match on any a pay line to bring players a mammoth 8x the spin bet multiplier, and up to 24x that amount with a wild multiplier.
Microgaming is always on the lookout for brand new slot innovations and the Anderthals online slot looks to have cracked it thanks to an intelligently designed slot that is loads of fun to play, and uses a brand-new ‘feature symbol’ and ‘feature spots’ concept to keep their slot collection fresh and diverse!
