NetEnt’s Latest Release: Conan Video Slot

Conan is obviously inspired by Conan the Barbarian, the eighties film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Here we saw a vagabond work his way to becoming a hero, all set in a mythical universe. It was an instant classic, and the film has become a beloved favourite of many generations of viewers.

2011 saw a remake starring Jason Momoa, who was not as much of a star as he is now. The film never achieved the cult status of the first film. Still, it is easy to see how this mythical hero still captivates the hearts of many viewers.

Now the hero is back in an action packed release by NetEnt. This game has great graphics and has plenty of bonus features. Every spin give you the chance to unlock one of four separate bonus features, including 3 different free spins rounds and the very profitable Thoth-Amon Feature. It also has two kinds of wilds to make the game that much more exciting. The result is an exciting 6-reel slot.

Bonus symbols

The game features several bonus symbols:

Tower Wilds

Tower Wilds are wilds that can come stacked, they will substitute all other symbols, except for other wilds.

The Mystery Symbol, Multiplier and Thoth-Amon Feature

Mystery symbols are similar to wilds in that they can transform into any other symbol, except for scatters, Tower Wilds or Battle Wilds. They will all transform into the same symbol, to give you the highest payout possible. They can also come stacked on reels. If you land a stacked mystery symbol and a Tower Wild of the same spin, you activate the Thoth-Amon Feature. Here, mystery symbols will be added to the reels until no more can be added, you will also get a multiplier between 3 and 7. This makes it a very profitable feature indeed.

Battle Wilds

These wilds can appear on reels 5 and 6 in the main game. They can expand up to 3 positions sideways, they can cover and substitute any symbol, except for scatters.

Linked Reels

In the main game, reels can become linked together, meaning they will display the same symbols. This can happen for reels 2 to 4. In the free spins, each spin will have at least 2 reels linked together. If you are lucky, you can even have all 6 reels linked together.

Free Spins

Three or more scatters on the wheels will make our hero release his power. You will get three different free spins mini games:

1.      The Temple of the Beast Free Spins

This feature offers you free spins with medium to high volatility, meaning you have a chance at winning big. Mystery symbols can be added randomly and can create multipliers.

2.      The City of Thieves Free Spins

With this feature, you get low to medium volatility free spins. This means you have more chances to win, but the prizes are slightly smaller. You can get tower wilds on all reels to greatly improve your chances of winning. These can expand to cover the reels partially or completely.

3.      The Walls of Tarantia Free Spins

This free spins feature also offers low to medium volatility. Here you can get Battle Wilds, which can land in any position and expand up to three positions sideways or vertically to adjacent reels.

Our verdict

While the game is impressive, especially with the graphics, and how detailed each symbol looks, it is clear that this game is one of NetEnt’s less developed games. NetEnt has gone through the trouble of getting licencing for movie-inspired games (branded slots) such as Jumanji, Dracula, South Park and more. So it would have been nice to see Arnie or at least Jason Momoa make their appearance in the game. Still the game is worth at least a few spins, especially if you consider the bonus rounds it offers.
