This Rook’s Revenge slot is one of the older generation from Betsoft, but is still one of the best thanks to big multipliers and easy to understand gameplay.

The main appeal has to be those beautiful Aztec rocks crashing from above to land on the five reels with a dramatic tumble.

When you get a win, those rocks will explode, and more will tumble from above, giving you a mini-free go, or another chance at another win.

That’s what we mean by ‘cascading’ reels, and they are important to making this game great.

The Aztecs always demand a blood sacrifice

There are a couple of downsides however; the first is that the minimum bet 0.50 a spin, even though there’s only 25 paylines, and the max bet is only $62.50.

If you want more or less you’ll have to go play on Kawaii Kitty instead.

The second issue is that the Return to Player Rate of Rook’s Revenge is lower than most; 94.53%, far lower than the 96% from The Slotfather Part II game for instance.

So it doesn’t pay often or quickly, which will leave many wondering if all this sacrifice will really lead to the city of gold.

And yes, the gods here are fickle: this is an all or nothing kind of slot machine. Some days you play 50 spins and walk away with dust in your pocket, but then other days…

Other days that crazy chief on the side of the reels will start dancing like a maniac as you build up a chain reaction like no other.

You are trying to catch the 5x or 10x multiplier

Remember those cascading avalanche wins we talked about at the top?

Well, not only do you get another chance at a win, but each subsequent win on this Rook’s Revenge slot online gives you a multiplier on that win.

So the first win is just at 1x, but if you then win again when more symbols tumble down from above, and you’ll get a 2x multiplier.

The third win in a row will give you a 3x multiplier, the fourth a 4x multiplier and a 5th a 5x multiplier.

How often does that happen? Probably not often enough, but when it does it gets the heart racing.

Mostly you are lucky to get one or three wins in a row, but line up enough symbols and it can certainly be worth your while even then.

The Rook’s Revenge slot is all about the free spins

Bet you are wondering when you get those 10x multipliers, right?

Because 5x multiplier is good, but not as good as twice that, which you get, but only when 3 or more golden mask symbols land on screen.

Then thinks get interesting because all the multipliers are doubled.

And whilst you generally don’t get a lot of free spins – around 8 to 10 – those cascading wins help keep the action going for a little longer than expected.

More importantly, with the third win now getting you a 6x multiplier, it doesn’t matter as much if you don’t manage to get 5 wins in a row.

Even just three wins will have you running away from this Aztec slot game with a armful of gold.

That said, you will need to budget in order to trigger the bonus games; they can take a good 150 spins before they show up on your screen.

Still, catch them sooner than that, and you’ll soon understand why this is still one of player’s favourite after all these years.

That said, personally we prefer this Betsoft slot on mobile rather than at online casino – on tablets and iPads the graphics are particularly sharp, even if you have to download the features the first time around.

Better yet, the annoying chief on the side of the screen disappears, keeping the spins clean and all about those beautiful tumbling reels.
