Gameplay

Elk Studios has created another winning story line for their 18th century war slot, Poltava: Flames of War. Set in a serene forest with a mixture of mournful music and heavy metal reel spins, this slot features 5 reels, 4 rows, 40 paylines and an exceptional RTP of 96.4%. There are 8 base symbols, of which the highest value three are the armed troops: the cavalry, which pays up to 200 coins, the artillery, which pays up to 150 coins and the infantry, for up to 125 coin wins. The Poltava logo symbol is the wild and the golden lion is the bonus trigger.

It also has the famous Elk Studios betting strategies available to maximize your winning chances, which include the Optimizer, Leveler, Booster And Jumper options.

Special Features

If you get 3 golden lions on reels 2,3 and 4, it triggers the Flames of War bonus game, which gives you 3 free spins to start. In the Flames of War game, the triggering lions act as sticky wilds and stay in place to maximize your wins. Plus, any additional lion symbols you get will add more free spins to your tally and those lions will also remain as sticky wilds.

The best special feature, in our opinion, is the Marching Reels, which is part of the base game. The Marching Reels comes up far more often than the Flames of War Bonus and is at least, if not more, generous! Any reel that is entirely covered top to bottom in either the cavalry, artillery or infantry, turns the entire reel sticky in the free respin and also transforms all the symbols behind on rows 2 and 3 left of that reel as well. So say the entire reel 3 becomes covered in cavalry, on the free respin, you’ll get 8 cavalry symbols to win. If even just one more cavalry symbol appears on the next reel, the entire frontline pushes forward one step and you get another free respin, but now with 11 cavalry symbols. This makes for some pretty princely payouts!

Verdict

The bonus game is hard to trigger and frankly, not worth the wait. But in this particular slot, it doesn’t really matter because most of the 96.4% RTP wins are in the base game, which has its own fantastic twists, turns and super- sized payouts.
