Quickspin decided to take inspiration from the ancient Phoenix bird in its online slot release Phoenix Sun. The mythological creature is believed to live for thousands of years and will burst into flames before it rises from the ashes. With Phoenix Sun, you have the element of the mythic bird on the reels with plenty of special features and big prizes to discover!
This game is odd as it shifts from three to six rows in height, and it offers from 243 to 7776 ways to win. Betting options range from $0.25 to $100. Players of all bankrolls and skill levels will find an option for wagering in this unique release. Even if you have chosen to stay on the low end, when the bet ways expand, you have plenty of more opportunity to earn a win!
Phoenix Sun Jackpot
The prizes are somewhat small considering the max bet is $100. With the max bet placed, you can win $400 from the Pharoah symbol and $300 with the Female character. These are the top prizes in the game, and they can only be won when the symbols are seen in five of a kind matches with the max bet.
So, what special features can you expect from Phoenix Sun? Well, just as the Phoenix bird rises from the ashes, the Phoenix Sun has a rising grid. You start with a 3×5 game grid and it provides 243 bet ways. The Phoenix Rising feature will expand the game and it can grow to a 6×5 size and feature the 7776 bet ways.
The slot also includes respins. A phoenix wild seen in a winning bet line will trigger the Phoenix Rising Respins. Every Phoenix Wild will remove three random tiles that are covering the 3×5 grid. A respin is then triggered on the expanded grid. The game continues to respin until there are no more wilds on the reels or if you trigger the free spins round.
The Free Spins round is triggered when you have five Phoenix Wild symbols on the reels. Eight spins are awarded, and the spins take place on the full grid with the larger 7776 bet ways! The Phoenix Wild will substitute for all symbols in the game. It will show up only in the base game or respins, never in the free spins round. There is also a standard wild in the game. It will substitute for all symbols except for the Phoenix Wild.
The design of Phoenix Sun is unique as it has an unusual grid formation with the possibility for the reel set and the bet ways to increase. The symbols and background are clear with nice coloring and the soundtrack is quite enjoyable. Many times the music connected to slot games becomes annoying very quickly, but that is not the case with this Egyptian style sound.
If you are searching for a unique game with a low spinning cost, this is a nice choice. If you are hoping to score a huge jackpot prize, you might want to try another Quickspin game. This slot does have a high RTP of 96.05% but if you win, the prizes will be small, especially if you have wagered on the low end of the available betting range.
