Stacks of Pearls got a title which refers both to one of its major features and to the symbols which you’re going to see appear on several of its reels. The release, one of Lightning Box’s, is looking pretty good for anyone that enjoys unique features and pretty marine-themed graphics.
5x3 reels make up the game area which Stacks of Pearls is going to use, while 30 active lines will be available on it. Ranging from wilds with multipliers which can reach 27x, to mystery symbols and re-spins, the feature list of this slot is varied and different enough from the majority, to be able to keep things interesting. We’re looking at relatively low payouts most of the time, but thanks to the huge multipliers which can help, the rewards do have the potential to reach a decent value.
Betting and Prizes
Expect a game which has 30 lines in play, but which appears to require wagers of 40 coins each round. The range will start from as little as $0.40, so that each coin has a value of $0.01, reaching a maximum value of $120 eventually, at $3 per line.
In a game which has a chance to get so many wilds on the reels, and with big multipliers which can reach a combined 27x, the regular rewards are bound to be on the small side. You can rest assured, you can still get a decent return out of a game like this, it’s just going to vary a lot, depending on your luck. In the long run, the game is expected to have a Return to Player percentage of 95.41%.
Stacks of Pearls Slot Features
Among the features which are introduced in Stacks of Pearls, the wild symbol is likely to be the most easy to figure out, since it’s used in the largest number of slot machines. Like in other games, its base role is that of a replacement symbol, and so if it happens to land on just the right line, it can be a part of the winning combo that forms there.
Of course, it’s not as basic as that in this particular case, and in fact you get some excellent multipliers here, which can improve your winnings further. These can be set to 1x, 2x or 3x, depending on how they’re delivered through the mystery stacks of pearls. It should be noted, these multipliers work with each other, and so the best possible situation is to have three wilds with 3x multipliers on the same line, as this gives you a 27x total multiplier (3x3x3).
The stacks of pearls which get mentioned in the title are mystery symbols, which you can get on the middle three reels. You will find them transformed into a single random symbol, which can even be a wild. 5 respins are given, if you have a stack covering a reel, and additional pearls can appear, and they retrigger the respins as well. At the end, you get the pearls transformed into wilds, with random multipliers, or into regular symbols.
Theme & Design
It’s a marine themed design, which looks very good. Though there are several Royals which have plants next to them, the better symbols range from pearls, to ocean creatures, mermen or diving equipment. The same beauty and wealth of detail can be seen in the background image.
I found Stacks of Pearls to be a very interesting release, due to the presence of excellent graphics and some very cool features inside.
