Multifly, the latest slot release from the well-known developers at Yggdrasil Gaming will take you deep into the jungle where you will find yourself surrounded by all sorts of creatures and living things. Little did we know that you can actually find slots out in the jungle. While you might think flies are the main characters of this slot seeing they are a part of the title, it is actually a bunch of chameleons who are in the spotlight, always on the hunt for their next firefly dinner.
The reel set itself is kept to a pretty standard set up, giving you 5 reels and 3 rows for the symbols to land on. However, this is a multiway (or perhaps multifly) slot, so there are no pay-lines as such, but a total of 243 ways to win in place. Under the reel set, you will be able to adjust your bet as well as activate the autoplay function. Bets will start from a minimum of 0.10 per spin and up to 75 per spin. Thanks to the different features available in the slot, the maximum bet can go up to 10 000x your bet when they all act collectively.
Multifly has an RTP of 96.3% and is a highly volatile game. The features in the game include a Dropdown Feature, Reel Multipliers and a Free Spins Feature. There are also two special symbols, which of course is the scatter and the wild symbol.
As already mentioned, there are quite some special features in the slot, to keep the fun going. The most common one being the Dropdown Feature, then you have the Reel Multiplier triggered by the wild symbol and finally, the Free Spins Feature triggered by the scatter symbol.
The Dropdown Feature will without a doubt be the feature you see the most in this slot as it will be in play on every win. Essentially, it is more or less the same as a cascading win feature. This means that any winning symbols that have been part of a winning combination will be removed from the slot and will then be replaced by new symbols that are dropped from the top of the reel set. Naturally, you will then get another chance to get more winnings combinations on the reels during the same spin. However, what makes this feature even better, is that a wild symbol will be added to the reels each time it is triggered and will keep on going until no more wins are made.
The wild symbol also plays a role in the Reel Multiplier feature. As usual, the wild has the ability to substitute all regular symbols on the reels, but it will also trigger the Reel Multiplier feature every time it lands on anywhere on the reels. No matter if it randomly lands on a spin or during the Dropdown Feature. Each of the five reels has its very own multiplier that will start out at x1. When a wild symbol lands, then the reel it has landed on will get its multiplier increased by x1.
The Dropdown Feature will come in handy here as it will allow multipliers to be built up over several reels, which will then all be applied to winning combinations. If you have an x2 multiplier on one reel and an x4 multiplier on another, this will result in an x8 multiplier It will only be the reels that have winning symbols on them that will get their multipliers applied. When playing in the base game, multipliers will then be set back to x1.
Free Spins Feature
In this feature you will be looking out for three of the scatter symbols as this is what it takes to trigger the Free Spins Feature, the scatters can only land on the three middle reels. When this happens, you will be rewarded with 10 spins. The rules here will be exactly the same as in the base game, but the Reel Multiplier feature is what will make this feature stand out. The Reel Multiplier will not be reset between cascading wins. This means that you can end up getting some pretty big wins thanks to the multipliers that will continue to increase, the wilds and Dropdowns combined with the free spins feature.
Design and Symbols
In this jungle-themed slot, you can expect to catch a glimpse of what really goes on out there in the wild. With the background of the slot showing off the deep and dark jungle, with trees and various plants both behind the reel set as well as surrounding the reels. At the top of the reel set you will see the 5 main characters of the game, which of course are the firefly-eating chameleons, each of them placed strategically on top of a reel. Yggdrasil Gaming has gone all out in creating this colourful, eye-popping slot.
The symbols on the reels have bright colours making them fit right into the theme of the slot, but unfortunately, Yggdrasil has turned to use the boring old card suits as the low-value symbols. These, of course, include 9, 10, J, Q, K and A which have all been designed in bright colours on a greyish background. The high-value symbols are the ones that have been created to suit the jungle theme of the game, showing a blue lizard, a green frog, a purple toucan and an orange parrot. Out of these four symbols, the parrot has the highest value giving you 4x your bet for five of a kind.
Of course, there are the two special symbols of the slot too, with the wild symbol simply represented by the word “WILD” in gold, surrounded by fireflies. When the wilds land on the reels, the chameleons come to life and will slurp up one of the fireflies on the corresponding reel, which will in return increase the multiplier on that reel. The scatter symbol shows a serious-looking chameleon and is the symbol that will trigger the free spins feature of the game.
Our Thoughts on Multifly
Multifly is the kind of slot that quickly can go from slightly boring to fast-paced and action-packed in just a split of a second. This is of course due to the multipliers that can add up pretty quick and result in some big wins. Of course, the high volatility plays a role here too. Seeing there are three different special features going on in the game, you might think that there cannot be any boring moments, but you might find that the free spins feature can get off to a pretty slow start. However, as soon as a wild symbol lands on the reels, you will see the multipliers on the reels starting to increase and suddenly you are reeling in the wins.
However, as always with slots and different features, there is no guarantee that the multipliers or free spins feature will result in big wins. Which of course will be pretty frustrating. For most people, the biggest disappointment would be that the bonus game pretty much is the same as the main game, making the whole slot slightly repetitive at times. All in all, we found Multifly to be a pretty entertaining slot with some clever and unique features that can potentially result in some great wins of up to 10 000x your stake.
