A Dance With The Devil

Play Novomatic’s Faust pokies to learn how to beat the devil at his own game! This 10 payline slot game features a 95.10% RTP and free spins with expanding symbols that can be retriggered as many times as you like.

Gameplay

Faust is famous for his tragic deal with the devil, which brought him wealth, thrills and worldly pleasures. Much like Faust’s deal, this 5×3 slot is great for thrill seekers because it’s highly volatile with the potential for massive wins, or none at all. The graphics are of a much higher caliber than Novomatic’s usual standards, with dark lighting and details we aren’t used to seeing in their more cartoony slot games. That should indicate from the start that this is a slightly more serious game, with much higher stakes and bigger wins. Although it feels like they shamefully ruined the atmosphere when they overlaid the game with arcade machine sound effects, but perhaps that’s just the devil’s evil revenge!

In this game, Faust represents the highest paying base symbol, paying out up to 200 coins for x5 symbols on a payline. The other base symbols are, from highest value to lowest, Gretchen the lovely maiden, the blue scales and the red scales, which all start paying out from just 2 symbols appearing on the reels. The other 4 base symbols are the playing card icons 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace.

The Faust slot also has a tempting double or nothing Gamble Feature where you need to guess the colour of the mystery playing card to win.

Special Features

The Devil himself, Mephisto, also features in this game laughing at us in an eerie, red light. He represents both the scatter and the wild symbols and even pays out up to 80 coins on his own. Three Devils also trigger the 10 free spins Bonus game, which can also be retriggered.

The Free Spins also includes a special expanding symbol feature, where one base symbol is chosen at the start of the free games. Whenever it appears on a free spin, after the spin is paid out, it then expands to cover 3 other random symbols to maximise your wins and adds a second payout to the spin.

Verdict

This highly volatile slot has a lot going for it, but with a fairly low RTP of just 95.1% and such high potential in the Free Spins bonus game, it doesn’t leave much going for the base game. Still, if you’re up for the thrills, you can have a devil of a time playing this game!
