ELK Studios, a popular developer of slot machines, has decided to go back in time to when the legendary Ashoka ruled the Maurya Empire. This is after the company released its newest slot, Ashoka, named after the iconic emperor.
Ashoka is played on 6 reels and up to 8 rows, where players can form a winning combination on one of the 8 bet lines. You can match at least 8 J-A card royals on the reels and receive a 0.1x to 5x the stake. Gamers can also receive a payout after collecting 8 or more green, blue, red, or orange gems. The white tiger is the premium icon rewarding you with 5x to 100x.
But be wary of the blockers above and below the reels. You can remove these blockages by creating a winning combo adjacent to them. Of course, this frees up more space on the reels to land more winning symbols.
By substituting other winning symbols, the wild assists players in creating additional winning combinations. A wild symbol can house three credits when it lands, representing how many wins it will continue to contribute. The expanding wild can appear as 1×1, 2×2, or 3×3.
It’s also worth noting that the wild icon can trigger the win multiplier when it lands on the reels. If this feature activates, you’ll see the game’s total value beside the reels, which keeps increasing as you create more wins. The super multiplier feature can also start after every avalanche that you activate.
As expected, Ashoka also has a free spins feature where gamers receive 10 bonus games after finding at least three scatters. Players can also win 5 or 10 additional spins in the bonus rounds after landing 2 or 3 scatters, respectively. Note that the super multipliers remain active throughout the bonus mode.
But the main attraction of this mythology slot machine is the developer’s popular X-iter feature. This mechanic spices up the gameplay by letting players choose between five game modes, increasing their chances of winning the bonus games.
For example, gamers can unlock the Super Bonus game with 500x the bet. In that case, they are sure to collect a super multiplier icon on the reels. But don’t forget that this slot mechanic and AutoPlay are unavailable to UK players due to regulatory issues.
