RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game is 96.03%. This means that the casino returns this percentage of all bets back to the players. The volatility or variance is high. A high volatility means that you win less frequently, but large amounts.
The design looks very good, and the theme really stands out. In the background you can hear the music that ensures that you get completely in this atmosphere. Looking at the playing field, we see the usual 6 reels with a maximum of 6 symbols / rows. Directly at the top is the number of megaways that are valid that turn. On the left side of the playing field you will find the ‘Buy a Bonus' feature and you can determine your bet. The other side contains the rest of the options such as the ‘spin' button, the settings, and the autoplay button. At the bottom you will find, as always, the amount on your balance, what you win, and your chosen bet.
