ALL ABOUT DIVINE LOTUS SLOT
Thunderkick’s high variance slot, Pink Elephants, is something of a cult classic round these parts. A psychedelic take on the 4,096 ways to win game format first popularized by WMS in Raging Rhino, the game showcased the best of this Scandinavian studio. Whacky creativity, mixed with dynamite game play, lashed to a high variance engine that’s sure to cause joy and pain in equal measure.
It’s now two years since the release of Pink Elephants, and Thunderkick have decided to re-work the slot with a serene, Oriental feel and most of the same features and tricks. The real fun comes in the free spins round where the odds increase in your favour as progressively more symbols convert into mystery ones as you collect lotus flowers.
Divine Lotus Themes, Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
The game setting is a kind-of Oriental fantasy land, with rocky gardens overflowing with vegetation hanging in a pink and purple sky behind the reel set which is in a 6×4 format.
The low value symbols are the cards, 9 through to Ace, whilst the premium ones are represented by the dragons in blue, green, yellow and red. Look out as well for the flaming dragon which is worth 10x for six on a pay line. There is also a W for wild, and a lotus flower scatter that is needed to trigger the free spins round.
Divine Lotus Features
Divine Lotus comes with Mystery Symbols in the form of a lotus. These perform the trick of transforming into identical symbols when two or more land simultaneously to increase your win chances.
The Free Spins round here is triggered by landing scatters on three or more reels in one spin. This gives you two spins PLUS one extra spin for EVERY scatter landed. So four scatters would give you 2 spins PLUS four spins. That’s SIX free spins!
Those familiar with Pink Elephants will remember the glowing orbs that are collectable in the free spins round. Filling orb meters removes low value symbols from the reels and replaces them with premiums. Something similar happens here, only it’s lotus flowers that you are collecting rather than orbs, and low value symbols are replaced with Mystery Symbols instead of premiums.
When the meter fills you are also rewarded with another free spin in the round.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
Re-workings of successful slots aren’t always a great success, but in the case of Divine Lotus, Thunderkick have done a great job. The game looks fantastic and lures you in with the same potential for scintillating win sequences and big potential as the game that inspired it. Beware of the high volatility though – those lotus flowers look pretty but they will eat up your balance without warning. So set an affordable budget and stake before you dive in.
