The 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines of this pokie are set in a dark fantasy world that features both elements of the future and occult magic. Modern society, as we know it today, seems to have fallen and left survivors to pick up the pieces.
The survivors in question are the heroes of the detailed plot, 4 friends who are fearlessly working to protect the city that they love. Zero.x, Chronos, Flare and Psyop are up against a ruthless antagonist named Deep Pockets. They need to band together and drain his riches, in order to stop his reign of evil.
Each of the heroes in Arcane Reel Chaos has their own super power, which goes a long way to boost players' potential payouts. The special features include overlay wilds, multiplying respins, stacked wilds and multipliers.
A Scatter talisman turns Deep Pockets into a terrifying maniac, so the chief objective of the game is to destroy this symbol. To do this, players need activate the Final Showdown by landing 3 of the Scatters anywhere on the reels at the same time. The Free Spins Bonus Round will be triggered, and they will have the chance to engage their arch-enemy in a heroic battle.
If Flare, Psyop, Chronos or Zero.x is able to defeat Deep Pockets in the Final Showdown Free Spins Round, the bet line multiplier increases. Every time this happens, the multiplier goes up more. At the same time, every time a hero beats the nemesis, they're awarded a Victory Bonus which is added to the total payout.
With elements of both the Hunger Games and Twilight, Arcane Reel Chaos proves that NetEnt has great insight into popular culture. The weaving of special features, such as Free Spins and Wilds, is both impressive and entertaining. A theoretical Return to Player Percentage of 96.81% and a top jackpot of 242,500 coins should make Kiwi players even more eager to try the pokie out for themselves.
