Full Reel Wilds

During gameplay, special Purple and Gold Wilds can land fully stacked on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 only, substituting for all other symbols except Scatters.

Gold Wilds are regular stacked Wilds, yet Purple Wilds will appear with a Multiplier value of x8. All wins that are part of the Purple Wild will have their wins multiplied by x8. Both the Gold and Purple Wilds do not appear during Free Spins.

Win Exchange

Whenever a win hits 80x your bet or more, you will have the option to exchange this amount for 7 Free Spins. If you win between 25x and 80x your bet, you will be given the option to exchange the amount for a chance to win 7 Free Spins.

Sanctuary - Full Reel Wilds

Sanctuary Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, 5, or 6 Scatters during the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 7 Free Spins and 1, 2, 3, and 4 Video Slots respectively.

Once the Free Spins round has been triggered, you will be given the chance to Gamble your current Free Spins setup via a Gamble Wheel. A successful gamble will award +2 additional Video Slots, yet an unsuccessful gamble (if the number in black is 0) will send you back to the base game empty-handed.

Sticky Wilds

During Free Spins, an Ankh symbol can appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. Whenever this happens, a Sticky Wild will be placed in that position in all active Video Slots.

If 4 Sticky Wilds are on a reel, they will be replaced with a full reel x4 Wild, awarding an additional +3 Free Spins, up to a maximum of 12 in total.

Sanctuary Free Spins

Sanctuary Bonus Buy

Those outside the UK will benefit from a Bonus Buy option. Big Time Gaming has granted players access to the Free Spins round for a total cost of 80x your bet. (RTP 96.39%)

Sanctuary: Our Verdict

Big Time Gaming has come a long way since the days of Lil Devil and Danger High Voltage, exceeding our expectations in each new release by delivering diverse and captivating features and modifiers.

There’s method in BTG’s madness when it comes to thinking up their next release. Just like Lil Devil and Danger High Voltage, BTG will have you singing along to a classic soundtrack from The Cult that ties in nicely to the theme and title of Sanctuary.

As the reels start turning, the base game quickly gets us acquainted with Gold and Purple Full Reel Wilds that can land on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. Out of the two, only the Purple Wilds can land with a Multiplier of x8, but a combination of both has the ability to deliver some pretty epic wins.

The Free Spins round is by far the most thrilling part of gameplay, where up to 4 Video Slots can be played at once. This is done by landing 3, 4, 5, or 6 Scatters in order to activate 1, 2, 3, and 4 Video Slots respectively.

Playing with 1 Video Slot is not as exciting as 2, 3, or 4.  In order to start off on the right foot, you will need to put on your big girl pants and be willing to take on the Gamble Wheel if you are to see Sanctuary in all its glory. However, the luckiest of players may just have it handed to them on a silver platter by landing more than 3 Scatters.

Big Time Gaming’s max win caps are just as impressive as Nolimit City slots, even going as far as topping them on occasion. Keeping that momentum going, BTG has capped the max win at 20,480x here, which is a dream come true if you’re lucky enough to hit it!
