Conan is powered by Net Entertainment and comes with 6 reels, 4 rows and 24 paylines with win both ways technology. Playable from 20p to £200 a spin on all devices, this game is based on Conan the Barbarian which is the subject of various films (starring Arnie), books, comics and video and board games.
With cartoon style graphics, you’ll find a snow-capped village in the backdrop. Symbols include snake, lion and falcon coins as well as grappling hooks, swords, helmets and famous characters. The most rewarding is obviously Conan with 3, 4, 5 or 6 on a payline giving you 0.75, 2, 5 or 6 times your stake.
Tower Wilds feature
Conan comes with three 2×4 sections (2 for each reel) – each of them is connected to a feature. First, you have the Tower Wilds feature which appears in the first section (reels 1 and 2). Tower Wilds can appear and expand to cover the reel partially or entirely. The Tower Wilds replace all symbols bar the scatter.
Mystery Symbols feature
Then you have the second section (reels 3 and 4). Mystery symbols appear on reel 3 and 4 and can appear as single or stacked symbols – they then transform into a random symbol bar the scatter, Tower Wild or Battle Wild. This is called the Mystery Symbols feature.
Mystery Multiplier & Thoth Amon features
If you get a fully stacked mystery symbol on reels 3 and/or 4, you will trigger the Mystery Multiplier feature – this is between 3x and 7x. If a fully stacked mystery symbol appears on either reels 3 or 4 (or both), along with a Tower Wild or Battle Wild, you will trigger the Thoth Amon feature – between 3 and 6 mystery symbols are randomly added to give you bigger winning potential.
Battle Wilds feature
Lastly, you have the Battle Wilds feature which covers the third section (reels 5 and 6). Battle Wilds appear on both these reels and expand up to 3 symbol positions sideways to an adjacent reel. These Battle Wilds substitute for all symbols bar the scatter.
Linked Reels feature
Conan also comes with a Linked Reels feature – the reel pairs in each of the three 2×4 sections have a chance of being linked with the other reel in the same section to display the same symbols. This basically increases your chances of landing bigger wins or to trigger the features described above.
3 free spins features
The highlight of the Conan slot are the 3 free spins features – these can be accessed by getting 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatter symbols will give you 10, 15, 25 or 50 free spins respectively. The Linked Reels feature applies with at least 2 adjacent reels being linked together on every free spin.
You then choose between the City of Thieves Free Spins, Temple of the Serpent Free Spins or Walls of Tarantia Free Spins features. Here’s what to expect:
- City of Thieves Free Spins feature – Tower Wilds can appear on all reels and expand up and or down to cover the reels partially or entirely. This a low/medium variance option.
- Temple of the Serpent Free Spins feature – mystery symbols and stacked mystery symbols can appear on all reels. Landing 1 or more fully stacked mystery symbols will trigger the Mystery Multiplier feature where a multiplier between 3x and 7x is applied. Getting 5 to 9 mystery symbols will trigger the Thoth-Amon feature where between 3 and 6 mystery symbols are added randomly. The feature is a medium to high variance option.
- Walls of Tarantia Free Spins feature – Battle Wilds appear on all reels and expand up to 3 positions sideways. This is a low to medium option.
Temple of the Serpent Free Spins feature is best
Well, take a breath! Conan may seem complicated but it’s all about the 3 sections which give you different features in the base game. The features are enhanced in the respective free spins features. I would always opt for the Temple of the Serpent Free Spins feature as the multipliers can lead to the biggest payouts available in this slot.
Win up to 2,016 x stake
Medium variance overall, you can win up to 288 times your stake if you fill the reels with the high-value Conan symbol – apply the potential 7x multiplier and you could pocket 2,016 times your stake on each spin or free spin. I do wish there were bigger potential wins on offer but it’s nicely balanced with good bonus features.
