Coming from the new kid on the block – NoLimit City – comes another high potential slot Barbarian Fury. The slot obviously has a Barbarian theme which strangely has a wolf as a scatter and a bear as a wild symbol. A winter themed background with a bright three colour character top symbols with some interesting mechanics especially on how the bonus is activated.
Theme of Slot
The graphics on this slot fit the theme well and the sound effects are aggressive which suits the theme of Fury well. I sometimes think the presentation of NoLimit slots can be a mixture and are not always as fluent as some other providers. However, I feel this one of their better presentations even if the animation of reels doesn’t feel too smooth. You can see the improvements on each slot they do and the interesting thing with this slot is how the bonus is triggered, which means they are trying to bring new ideas with each slot.
Features of Slot
Starting the basics of this slot it has a simple 5 reels and 25 lines however there are numerous extras to this game. Firstly, to trigger the bonus, you just need 3 scatters anywhere and it each scatter will nudge down. Every nudge down will add 1 free spin to the total and once added up the free spins will start at a multiplier of 1x. During free spins the multiplier can be increased through the wild bear symbol which once landed nudges into the reel with each nudge adding 1 to the multiplier. Any scatters that land during free spins will nudge down and will again add extra free spins for each nudge.
During base game as well as during free spins, you can hit 3 or more of the premium symbols which will then nudge up or down in place and will give you 1 respin to try to hit again – Barbarian Respin.
What to look for
Please take note that I have found that there are two versions of RTP on this slot, 96.06% (Leovegas) and 94.19% (Videoslots), so if you’re a RTP person take notice of this.
This game has the chance to give nice hits in the base game, but your big hits come from the bonus. Nice wins are possible with the Barbarian Respin as if you get the same premium on each reel it will nudge it all to form a full screen. The bonus is purely about the nudging bear wilds as this can quickly get the multiplier up high quickly so the more you can get the bears earlier the bigger the potential of the bonus can be. Also, the Barbarian Respin becomes way more valuable the higher your multiplier is. However, this makes for an extremely volatile bonus round and this slot can very easily give you a 0x bonus so beware with buying bonuses. Its nice that you can can get extra spins by landing just one scatter but isn’t the focus strangely.
Another solid slot from the new provider NoLimit City, the improvements they make in slot design are clearly seen here with some clever little twists. The potential is clear on this slot and is in the high volatile section so beware with bonus buys. The base game is reasonably interesting, but the excitement as always is in the bonus. The best part of this slot is the fact they re-use things from previous slots and tweak existing features to create an interesting new slot. Personally, not my favourite slot from NoLimit but still a great and highly playable slot from them,
