Ivan and the Immortal King by Quickspin

Quickspin has released a new 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 20 fixed paylines. Ivan and the Immortal King explores Slavic folklore and mythology at these great phone bill  slots.

The focus here is on the story of Ivan Tsarevich, who is in search of the wise Vasilisa and must find her at the koshesi (the deathless magician). The soul of the magician lives not in a body, but in a needle, which is hidden in an egg. The egg is in a duck (or rabbit), the duck (or hare) in a cage and the box is hidden in a crown of an oak tree. Ivan sets out to kill the magician and save Vasilisa. This is a very simplified short version, on his journey he meets different people like the witch Baba Yaga.

As symbols, the slot has 5 gems in the colors red, blue, green, purple and yellow. As higher symbols there is a multi-headed dragon, a wolf, Wassilissa, the magician (Koschei) and Ivan himself. As game is a symbol with the eponymous inscription. A treasure chest serves as a scatter.

The whole slot is based on the life circumstances of the magician. Therefore one sees on the left also different multipliers for the individual stages which one must go through, in order to defeat the magician. First you look for the box, then the hare, the duck, the egg, the needles and in the end the magician appears as a dead skeleton. You can collect up to 20 times the multiplier. The free spins apply the progressive multipliers. There is a skull and crossbones coin symbol. For each collected 3 coins you get a level promotion and 4 more free spins. But you do not have to start at the lowest level. The free spins are based on the number of scatters received:

    3 Scatters grant 10 free spins starting at the lowest crate level

    4 Scatters grant 14 Free Spins on the Hare Level

    5 Scatters grant 18 free spins on the Duck level

In total, you can get up to 30 free spins, with the last spins receiving 20x multiplier.

Otherwise, the witch Baba Yaga can always appear. She randomly selects 4 symbols and either turns them all into wilds or sets more scatters or skull coins.

The stakes range from 20 cents to 100 €. The maximum win for a full screen in the base game is € 200,000, which is equivalent to 2,000 times the stake. In the free spins, the win factor may be 40,000 times the highest multiplier, but this will be very rare at a mobile slots gambling site. The theoretical payout ratio is 96.29%.

I had tried the game for a relatively short time. The free spins and the Baba Yaga feature came relatively seldom with me. After nearly 200 spins I got free spins on the lowest level by the witch. During the free spins I achieved a 3x multiplier, but in the end there was only a 25x win on the lowest bet. In free spins, the Baba Yaga feature is often triggered. It is a high-quality slot from Quickspin with great potential and variance.
