Eye of the Storm Bonus Features
The two central Eye of the Storm bonus features include expanding wilds and the progressive free spins round with symbol upgrades. This is something you’ll be familiar with if you’re a Pragmatic Play fan. The John Hunter and the Mayan Gods slot, for example, has all the same elements. The difference here is in the theme and the key stats, which are better, so let’s dive right into the game’s features one by one.
Wilds in the Eye of the Storm slot take the shape of the magnificent Cleopatra. Not only can she substitute for paying symbols other than scatters but also expand 3 symbols high if she’s about to fill a winning combination. Look out for her descending on reels 2, 3 and 4.
When 3 or more pyramid-shaped scatters appear on any base game reels, they trigger the free spins round. They also pay 2x, 20x and 50x your stake for 3, 4, and 5 scatters respectively.
The 6-tier free spins round kicks off with 12 free spins and 6 symbol upgrade tablets above the reels. The great news is you can retrigger the round with another 3 or more scatters.
Landing 1, 2 or 3 wilds during the round will add 1, 3, 5 or more free spins and increase your levels by 1, 2 and 3 respectively. There are 6 levels during which you can upgrade the lowest premium symbols to the next higher premium symbol.
When you reach level 2, all the Egyptian fan symbols turn into Ankhs; then all Ankhs turn into scarabs in the third level. These then turn into Sacred Ibis symbols in level 4 while the sacred bird turns into a jackal symbol in level 5. In the last level 6, the jackal turns into the highest paying symbol – the Eye of Ra.
Eye of the Storm Jackpot
In terms of the game’s jackpot, there’s nothing out of the ordinary here. If anything, the 1,000x your bet max payout offered in this game is on the lower side of things.
