Archangels: Salvation is powered by Net Entertainment and is a 6 reel, 100 payline slot that can be played from 40p to £200 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. You will see angels take on demons as you choose your side in this epic release. It comes with 2×2 wilds, Hot Spot areas which trigger Heaven and Hell features where you’ll benefit from stacks of wilds and up to 16 single wilds. There’s also a Free Spins feature where you can get up to 25 free spins.
Visually, Archangels: Salvation is brilliant – you will see an Angel to the left of the reel set and a Demon on the right. As you prepare for an eternal battle of good and evil, symbols on the reels include crystal-style diamonds, hearts, spades and clubs as well as skulls, lions, hoods and helmets. You’ll also see Angels and Demons (the same characters who appear in the backdrop). The latter 2 are the most rewarding giving you 150 coins for 5 on a payline.
In terms of the wild, there’s a 2×2 wild symbol – it substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. Now, Archangels: Salvation comes with 2 Hot Spot areas – the first consists of the top 2 rows on the reel set and the second consists of the 2 bottom rows.
Each area can trigger its own wild feature -if the 2×2 wild lands (fully or partially) in the top hot spot area, you’ll trigger the Heaven feature. If the 2×2 wild lands partially, 2 stacks of wilds will be generated and added to the reels. If the 2×2 wild lands fully, 4 stacks of wilds are generated. These wild stacks vary from 3 to 5 symbols in length.
Then you have the Hell feature which is activated when the 2×2 wild lands (fully or partially) in the bottom hot spot area. Here, the Hell area shoots singleton wild symbols randomly on the reels – you will get 8 wilds if the 2×2 wild lands partially or 16 singleton wilds if the 2×2 wild lands fully in the Hell area.
You can also reactivate either the Heaven or Hell features if a stack of wilds or a singleton wild land in the respective hot spot area again. You will benefit from each 1 stack of wilds or 4 singleton wilds when you do so.
Archangels: Salvation also comes with a Free Spins feature which is played when 3 or more scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels – the scatters appear 2-high on the reels by the way. 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters will reward you 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively. The only downside is that you cannot retrigger more free spins.
Saying that, the Hot Spot areas increase to occupy 3 rows meaning it’s easier to land 2×2 wilds in them – this will increase your chances of getting up to 16 wilds or wild stacks on every free spin.
The game may sound a little complicated but it’s rather simple once you get spinning those reels – it’s all about the 2×2 wilds that appear in either of the Hot Spot areas. I found the Hell feature to be more rewarding as 16 wild symbols on the reels can be quite lucrative.
This in the Free Spins feature can lead to wins of 375 times your stake on each free spin – it’s a medium variance offering so tread carefully. Saying that, it’s a superb slot from NetEnt (once again) and one that will prove to be very popular I’m sure. All that’s left now is to choose your side and good and evil collide in this epic release.
