Poltava slot derives its theme from the epic battle in the city of Poltava in the 18th Century.
A basegame of five reels and forty paylines is augmented by the Lion Bonus and Marching Reels feature.
High volatility gives Poltava the potential to deliver massive victories for players ready to battle for its bonus features.
This epic slot from ELK studios has a title that had us scratching our heads a little. As we’re not history buffs, we had to research that Poltava is the city where Russia’s Peter The Great achieved a decisive victory over Sweden in 1709. So that’s the background to the Poltava Slot game ‘s theme. But what big wins can you muster if you wage(r) war on Poltava’s five reels?
The base-game of Poltava slot is built on forty pay-lines. The Poltava Logo symbol is in action as the standard Wild on the reels. However the Lion Symbol also has a Wild Side that activates when three or more are in view on the three middle reels. That triggering event commences three re-spins with the Lions locked in position and functioning as Wilds. Should more Lions appear in those free spins, each will also stick around as a Wild and add an extra spin to this bonus campaign. That, as you can probably imagine, puts a lot of potential into scoring some hefty wins from Poltava’s pay-table.
Poltava slot’s other call to arms is its Marching Reels feature. Packing the reels are deep stacks of Poltava’s Cavalry, Artillery and Infantry symbols. Should a full stack of four land on a spin, a formation of the same symbol will fall in to the left of that stack and a re-spin triggered. Following that re spin, should another matching symbol appear on the reel to the immediate right of the stack, the stacked reel will advance one step to the right and trigger another re-spin! Like the Lion Symbol bonus, this combination of potential re-spins with locked instances of a paying symbol is the source of Poltava’s considerable appeal for players hunting down thrilling ways to win big.
From its graphical and sound design, Poltava clearly sets out its stall as an ‘epic’ slot. Whether you do battle on your desktop or mobile, it’s a slot that demands respect and rewards perseverance… much like Peter the Great in fact.
