Twilight Princess by Pragmatic play, the sequel to the much-loved Starlight Princess, is here to continue jaw-dropping moments on the backdrop of a beyond kawaii vibe. The multipliers have been toned down, but only to give way for the thrilling Sticky Wild mechanic.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
In contrast to the Scatter Pays system utilized by Starlight Princess, Twilight Princess operates on a grid slot format, where a win is established by having a minimum of 5 identical symbols land in connected blocks. As a result, there will be no tumble feature, but Twilight Princess shares a lot of similar stats: 96.08% default RTP and high volatility, but with an increased max win of 7,500x compared to the original 5,000x.
The slot also employs a slight adjustment on its grid, using a perfect square of 5x5. On it, you'll find circular, triangular, diamond-shaped, hexagonal, and heart-shaped symbols. The higher-paying symbols include a shield, a flower, a bell, a crown, and a princess. Winning blocks comprising 20 symbols or more grants a 7.5x to a 50x prize with the highest payout provided by the princess symbols.
Twilight Princess offers 1 main feature in the base game, Wilds with multipliers. Wilds perform the primary function of substituting for any symbol except the Scatter. Upon landing, Wild symbols carry multipliers of x2, x3, x5, or x10, then apply these values to any win in which the Wild is involved. When multiple Wilds contribute to the same win, their multiplier values are cumulative. A single Wild can participate in more than one winning block simultaneously, and achieving a full screen of Wilds results in a payout of 50x.
The Scatter, represented by a golden orb, appears on all reels in Twilight Princess. Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatter symbols not only grants payouts of 2x, 15x, or 100x the bet but also triggers 10 free spins. During free spins, any Wild symbol that appears remains fixed on the reels until the conclusion of the Free Spins bonus round. Scatters may also land during free spins, overlaying atop any symbol, giving out 5 to 30 free spins for 2 - 5 scatters.
For those seeking immediate access to Twilight Princess bonus from the base game, you can purchase them for 100x the bet. When opting for the buy Free Spins feature, 3 - 5 Scatter symbols are guaranteed to land on the triggering spin.
From the aesthetics to the gameplay, Twilight Princess can live in the shadow of its predecessor to some extent. But the Sticky Wilds in the Free Spins bonus round prove to be an engaging experience when coupled with the Wild Multipliers. All in all, hyper-fans of the original and lovers of the anime aesthetics in slots will certainly consider this a must-play.
