Ancient Eclipse is a brand new slot release from none other than Yggdrasil Gaming who have themed up with Bang Bang Games. In fact it's only the second slot from Bang Bang Games ever created. Mayan culture is the theme of the slot, which is a well known theme for most experience players. Consider yourself invited to try and harness the power of both the sun and the mood in this game, bringing along some innovative gameplay with it.
The special features in the game also happen to be a little unusual. The Eclipse Feature is central to the action as it brings both wilds and multipliers along with it. In addition to this, you also have a Free Spins feature where you can get even more eclipses as well as more wild extras. In other words, it looks like there should be enough action to keep most players entertained for a while.
Where to play
How to win big in Ancient Eclipse – Eclipse feature
In order to get in the biggest wins of the game, you will have to tripped the Eclipse feature where the big wins will be rolling in thanks to the multipliers. Trigger the feature by landing a moon symbol, which will transform the position to a Sun Frame, locking it in place. All positions which happen to include a Sun Frame and a moon symbol will then be transformed into wilds. This is then followed by a payout with the new wilds in place.
If you managed to trigger the Eclipse feature with more than one moon on the triggering spin, you will be looking at a multiplier. The multiplier applied will depend on the amount of triggers, so if you hit two moons to trigger the feature, then the payout will be doubled. After a symbol has transformed into a wild, then the Sun Frame will be removed from the reels.
- Free Spins feature
In addition to the Eclipse feature, you also have the Free Spins feature. This will be triggered when you land 3 scatters during a spin. You will receive 12 free spins in this case and before each free spin, any wild which would have landed on the previous spin, will reward you with a Sticky Sun Frame. Once one of these Sun Frames are activated, it will stay that way for the remaining time of the feature. Should you land a moon symbol, but not manage to trigger the Eclipse feature then you will have 1 extra free spin added to you total.
Look and Feel of Ancient Eclipse
The Mayan theme of the slot is created with great detail to it, providing interesting visuals even with a theme that has been used again and again. In the background you will be able to spot some pretty dense jungle, complete with some mist to add a little mystery. While the reels are spinning you will be hearing some rhythmic drums playing, adding to the atmosphere. The reel set has been set within a stone structure with columns on either side and at the top, all with different designs and images on them.
The low value symbols of the game are represented by the standard card suits, spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs. These are created in different colours and set in stone, ensuring they fit in nicely with the rest of the design. The high value symbols show a crocodile, tiger, eagle and two ancient gods, all engraved in stone. The god with the red gem as an eye is the highest valued symbol.
