25000 Talons Slot Review 2022

Microgaming partner, Alchemy Gaming are taking us above ground for a chance to get our claws on some big wins, in 25000 Talons!

25000 Talons has got a lot to live up to considering it’s from the same Provider who brought us Africa X UP and Chronicles of Olympus X UP, but will it deliver? 25000 Talons has not one but two exciting features for you to get your claws into, and if this is not enough, the pretty impressive 25,000x maximum win capacity should do the trick.

The theme and graphics may not be to everyone’s tastes, especially if you’ve been used to playing slot titles from Providers like Nolimit City and Relax Gaming. Just because 25000 Talons is not as attractive as Alchemy Gaming’s X UP titles, doesn’t mean its not a worthy slot choice. Because of the vintage-looking design, we feel that 25000 Talons may appeal more to players who love a classic.

That being said, the background is certainly a beautiful sight, with snowy mountains and plenty of scenery for you take in. If you could smell the air, we have no doubts it would be crisp and refreshing. The theme of 25000 Talons is not exactly a rare encounter but we are pretty confident that gameplay will make up for this.

Have we got what it takes to the reach the top of the mountain and claim the 25,000x for ourselves? Let’s play on and find out!

25000 Talons Base Game and Features

25000 Talons is a 5 reel slot with 10 fixed paylines. In order to form a win, you will need to connect 3 or more of the same symbols from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.

You may not think too highly of the base game in 25000 Talons, that is until you trigger one of the two exciting Features that Alchemy Gaming has thrown in. More on these below.

Fire Spin Feature

On the left side of the screen you will come across a row of 5 symbols, these are part of the Fire Spin feature. The Fire Spin fetaure can be triggered on any random base game spin.

Once active, one of the symbols on the Fire Trail will be chosen at random to become stacked on reels 1 and 2.

Reels 3, 4 and 5 will become linked as one Giant 3×3 Symbol. All High paying symbols including Wilds can land as a giant symbol.

In addition to this, a Wheel Symbol can also land on reels 3, 4 and 5 and landing this automatically triggers the Wheel Bonus Game.

Wheel Bonus Game

The Wheel Bonus Game can only be triggered during the Fire Spin feature.

Once, active, you will be awarded 1 Spin on the Bonus Wheel. Each coloured segment on the Wheel is associated with it’s own unique Jackpot Prize.

Depending on where the Bonus Wheel stops, you will be awarded with one of the following Jackpot Prizes.

  • Mini – Awards 20x your current bet.
  • Minor – Awards 75x your current bet.
  • Major – Awards 1,000x your current bet.
  • Mega – Awards 25,000x your current bet.

25000 Talons Free Spins

  • Bear Feature – Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters, awards 4, 6 or 8 Free Spins resepectively.

Once the chosen Fire Trail symbol is active, it will become Stacked on reels 1 and 2. Reels 3, 4 and 5 will transform into a Giant 3×3 symbol position with only High paying, Wilds and Level Up symbols present on the reel.

Level Up Symbol

Landing a Level Up symbol fully in view on the reel, automatically awards an additional +4 Free Spins.

In additon to this, the next Fire Trail symbol will unlock and stacked over reels 1 and 2. If the Fire Trail Wild symbol is reached, each time a Level Up symbol lands it will only award additional Free Spins.

25000 Talons: Our Verdict

25000 Talons isn’t quite as thrilling and exciting as Alchemy Gaming’s X UP titles, but it still has plenty of potential and fun to offer players.

Cougar, Bison and Bear Features as well as level ups, mini, minor, major and mega prizes gives 25,000 Talons a lot of allure, but if it’s innovation you’re after then perhaps your money is better placed elsewhere. There’s nothing particularly new in this slot. You’ve seen the features here before in other games elsewhere, so it’s not like you’re getting a new experience.

The theme is rather timeworn too. The American frontier seems to be a very popular style, but it’s perhaps too popular? Many has capatalised on it, and in our opinion its lost its appeal a bit.

Overall, 25000 Talons is a great instalment if you’re looking for simplicity, but perhaps not so much if you’re looking for the newest ideas.
