Brood of Gods Slot Review 2023
Play alongside Gods Papa, Rangi, and Whiro in Light & Wonder’s latest release, Brood of Gods!
Brood of Gods might not share much with Play’n GO’s classic Moon Princess, the gameplay is definitely giving us some ‘Moon P’ vibes.
Read on to find out how it works, but before you do, take a second to marvel at Brood of Gods and its impressive graphics. Its interestingly mythical mien certainly commands attention, but can Brood of Gods convert non-believers with interesting gameplay and potential?
Let’s take a look to find out.
Brood of Gods Base Game and Features
Brood of Gods is a 5×5 Video Slot with a Cluster Pays mechanic. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols (or a mix of all 3 God symbols) land in a line on adjacent reels, Horizontally or Vertically.
The minimum bet available here is £/€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€20 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. Brood of Gods has a theoretical RTP of 95.99% and a max win cap of 1,789x.
In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbols in Brood of Gods are the 3 God symbols, Papa, Rangi and Whiro. Low-paying symbols fall to the Green, Blue, Purple and Red Aztec symbols.
All winning symbols will be removed from the reels and all remaining symbols will drop to the bottom of the reel set, potentially forming more winning combinations.
Wild symbols will replace the middle position in a winning combination, substituting for all other symbols except Multiplier Coins.
When more than 1 winning combination shares the same middle symbol position, only 1 Wild symbol is awarded.
During the base game, special Bronze, Silver and Gold Multiplier Coins will appear when a winning combination of 4 or 5 symbols is formed.
When 4 or more Multiplier Coins have been collected, the Free Spins round will automaticllay trigger. Each Multiplier Coin symbol will award a random Cash Value as follows.
- Bronze – Award a Cash Value between 0.1x and 0.5x your bet.
- Silver – Awards a Cash Value between 0.6x and 0.9x your bet.
- Gold – Awards a Cash Value between 1x and 5x your bet,
All Multiplier Coins will be multiplied by the vet value, except during the Free Spins round.
During any non-winning spin in the base game, the Modifier Gods feature can be awarded.
Depending on which God is present next to the reel set, Papa, Rangi, or Whiro will trigger and award their corresponding Modifier.
- Papa – Before wins are calculated, a random number of symbols will transform into another random symbol from the paytable.
- Rangi – Before wins are calculated, a random 2×2 section of symbols will be randomly selected. One of the symbols from the paytable is chosen at random to replace each symbol in this 2×2 section.
- Whiro – Before wins are calculated, a random symbol is chosen from the grid and all instances are highlighted. All unselected symbols are removed, leaving only the selected symbols on the grid. New symbols will cascade down and all wins are calculated.
Brood of Gods Free Spins
As mentioned before, collecting 4 or more Multiplier Coins during any spin will automatically trigger the Free Spins round, awarding 5 Free Spins.
Before Free Spins can begin, you must first choose one of the Gods to be your Modifier for the duration of Free Spins. Please note, the maximum RTP is only achievable by selecting the God Rangi when entering Free Spins.
During Free Spins, the selected God’s modifier will only trigger during any non-winning spin. At the end of Free Spins, the God will revert back to the last God in play in the base game.
During Free Spins, the Multiplier Coin feature is available. Collecting 4 Multiplier Coins during this time will award an additional +1 Free Spin, up to a maximum of 10.
The Free Spins round starts with a x1 Multiplier Coin above the Collection Meter. This will be awarded to any Multiplier Coin value collected during Free Spins for each win, but only collected Multiplier Coins count towards winning additional Free Spins.
During Free Spins, each Multiplier Coin has no monetary value, instead delivering a random Win Multiplier of x1 for Bronze, x2 for Silver and x3 for Gold. Each winning combination will be multiplied by the total Multiplier Coin values during this round.
If at any time the entire reel set is cleared of all symbols, an additional 1,000x your bet is awarded. This can happen during both the base game and Free Spins round.
Brood of Gods Bonus Buy
Those outside the UK will benefit from a Bonus Buy option.
Light & Wonder has granted players access to the Free Spins round for a total cost of 50x your current bet. (RTP 95.99%)
Brood of Gods: Our Verdict
There’s no doubt in our minds that Brood of Gods is going to win points with players who love Play’n GO’s Moon Princess and Rise of Olympus, but is Brood of Gods a better choice?
The base game gives us the opportunity to see the God Modifiers in full swing during any random non-winning spin, along with an exciting Multiplier Coin feature that awards a range of Cash Values with each Coin symbol collected.
Clearing the grid doesn’t award the Free Spins round, but it does deliver a 1,000x Cash Prize for your troubles. The God Modifiers are a nice appeal, but it’s the Multiplier Coin feature that holds the key to the Free Spins round.
It’s here that the Multiplier Coins swap out their cash values for win multipliers instead. Be sure to choose your God Modifier wisely, as this is the only one that is available during Free Spins. Will it be Papa, Rangi, or Whiro that leads you to victory?
Brood of Gods ticks all the right boxes in gameplay, but it just falls short in the statistics side of things, with a maximum win capacity of 1,789x. This figure is a little disappointing to say the least, but don’t let this deter you from what Brood of Gods has to offer in other areas!
