Fear is not on Yggdrasil’s books, especially when it comes to debuting brand-new slots every week. The company’s latest release is Devour the Weak, set in the lava-filled pits of hell with merciless monsters. But the adventure is definitely worthwhile, considering there is a 10,000x top prize to claim.
Devour the Weak is a 5×3 slot machine with 243 ways to win. That should be enough for players to make wins on adjacent reels, although Megaways slots can hit thousands of winning ways. Players can book a trip to the harrowing experience with as little as 0.10 coins and as much as 100.
Across the reels, you’ll find the J-A symbols, which are the low-paying symbols. These symbols can reward lucky players with 0.1x to 1x the stake for matching at least three of them. The high-paying icons are the green, blue, red, and yellow monsters, rewarding gamers with 0.5x to 2.5x the stake.
After forming a winning combination, the Avalanche mechanic will trigger, causing all paying symbols to be replaced with new ones. This continues when you create further winnings, boosting your chances of a big payout. Note that it’s a relatively new system in the slot industry, giving players the potential to form multiple wins in a row.
Devour the Weak also has a wild symbol represented by the pink monster. When this monster appears on the reels, it replaces all paying symbols, allowing gamers to create more winning combos.
Interestingly, Yggdrasil introduces hexed symbols in this slot machine. If the Avalanche mechanic eliminates one of the hexed icons, a wild icon will take its place. Players can receive 10 free spins if six of the hexed icons are removed from the reels with the Avalanche mechanic.
After triggering the bonus games, the base multiplier will start at 6x, increasing gradually to 666x with each Avalanche. If a hexed icon appears on the three centre reels, it will transform into a wild, improving your potential of hitting the 10,000x top prize.
Yggdrasil also knows that some gamers would want to accelerate things from the onset, hence the inclusion of the Golden Bet feature. This feature awards gamers a hexed symbol to launch the free game mode. Players can trigger this feature using the Bonus Buy feature, costing 100x the original stake for a bonus game with a 7x multiplier of 666x the stake for a bonus round with a 33x multiplier.
Commenting on the game, Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product & Programs at Yggdrasil, remarked: “This exciting new slot isn’t for the faint of heart, with a great theme featuring demonic characters that are beautifully crafted for an immersive experience. We can’t wait to see players devour low paying symbols and start racking up impressive wins via hexed icons, win multipliers and free spins.”
