Poltava Slot

Poltava: Flames of War

poltava slotThere can be few slots that have thrown away the rule book in the way that Elk Studio’s Poltava slot has. We all know about their skills in designing great looking games like the Hidden slot machine and Wild Toro. Poltava: Flames of War recreates and rewrites a notorious battle at Poltava in the Ukraine between two armies in 1709.

You, the player, are invited to play and change the outcome of history with the spin of the reels. This game is inspired by the decisive battle in Great Northern War between the Swedish army and ‘Peter the Great’ of Russia, which changed the world forever.

You can join the adventure at hand and be part of a famous page from history when you take to the field of battle to take on the competition. Who will stand defeated after you’ve taken up the banner for battle- can you beat the enemy and become the victor, or will you be beaten into submission?

Look and feel

Here we find ourselves, in a deserted forest glade, off the screen the battle is already raging, with the sounds of warfare in the background of play. The theming of the game is eighteenth century when men wore tricorn hats and flowing locks were the order of the day. The graphics are high end- they hit the heights of games like the Fairytale Legends Red Riding Hood slot and Luchadora in our book. A big hand from us to the designers!

The graphics recreate a look like an old painting or the illustrations straight out of the pages from an adventure book. Just in case you missed the hint, we have been placed firmly in the olden days in terms of the look, but with high tech functionality. The reels are large and transparent, making the game easy on the eye.

The soundtrack of play is very cinematic with soaring and dramatic tones as well as the faint background sounds of cannon fire as the reels spin.

Gameplay

Poltava is a 3 row, 5 reel and 40 pay-lines adventuring slot that can be played across all devices. The theme is pretty serious when you compare it to other light-hearted games like the Lake’s Five slot, but it is no worse for it!

The high value icons are the items of the battlefield, a cavalry horse, an artillery cannon and a uniformed infantry soldier. The lower value icons are the Ace through ten of the card deck.

The Wild is the game’s logo with the word “Wild” in a gilt frame and this subs for all symbols except the Scatter, the roaring metal lion head.

Flames of War Free Spins

If Lady Luck has the grace to smile upon your endeavours in battle then you should be able to land three Scatter Lion icons on reels 2, 3 and 4 and unlock the main event in this dramatic slot.

You kick off your military offensive with a free spin but with those lion Scatters stuck in place as rather handy sticky Wilds to help you make more winning combos. If you can lure further lion Scatters onto the reels then you are awarded more free spins – now that’s how to have a roaring victory!

Reeling in victory?

To activate the Marching Reels feature in the base game you need to land four matching icons of an arm of combat- that is infantry (soldier), artillery (cannon) or cavalry (horse) stacked on a single reel to gain a free spin. Now that doesn’t sound too generous does it? But if you land further icons which match your stacked ones then you are given further free spins and the stacked icons stay in place acting like a sticky Wild- this is something rather quirky and potentially profitable.

Go techy

As with Elk slots, this game has a Betting Strategies function should you want to have a techy moment with your gameplay. There are four different strategies including the Optimizer, Leveller, Booster and Jumper to choose from.

Conclusion

I totally fell for the dramatic concept and moving soundtrack of Poltava: Flames of War. Elk Studios have imagined into reality a slick and surprisingly different game from a moment in time and it’s worked. The bonus features are great – my one whinge is that the pay-table isn’t amazing, with the highest value icon the horse only gives a x 200 pay-out for five which could be more generous, but this grumble aside, this is another stunner out of the Elk Studio stable.
