Akiva: Claws of Power by Foxium is an online slot with 25 paylines. Set on the majestic plains of Africa, players join Akiva, the lion, as he hunts his prey and claws through the reels or summons up sandstorms to award random bonuses in the base game.
Mount Kilimanjaro looms in the background as the wildlife spins around on the 5x3 grid. The regular symbols are brightly coloured J-A card ranks as low pays. Premium symbols are all inhabitants of the savannah; an antelope, a zebra, a hippo, and Akiva, the lion. Special pawprint coin symbols can also land, these have cash values attached, but players need to trigger the Link&Win feature by landing six coins at once to collect these. The betting range is from 0.20 to 100.00 per spin.
The Wild is the letter W on a tribal background. This will stand in for all the regular symbols to help form wins, and combos of three or more on a payline will also give their own payouts.
The Scatter is an African drum. This can only appear on reels 1, 3, and 5, but three in any position across these will trigger the Free Spins and award a generous payout.
As well as a great Link&Win bonus round, Akiva: Claws of Power has two extra features in the base game and a Free Spins round to keep things interesting and add a little kick to the win potential.
The first is the Akiva Sandstorm, which can trigger randomly on any losing spin. When it blows across the grid, the Akiva sandstorm will transform symbols and hopefully create winning combinations.
The Claws of Power sees a lion's claw raking across the grid to rearrange the symbols on the reels into winning combinations and also triggers randomly after a losing spin.
Landing 3 Scatter across reels 1, 3, and 5 awards five free spins and merges reels 2, 3, and 4 together. These land one giant symbol on every spin, with each individual position counting as one symbol, except for the Scatters, which will only count as one symbol, but if you land a Scatter on reels one and five at the same time as a giant, the Free Spins retrigger.
When at least 6 Coin symbols land, the Link&Win feature triggers. The reels will respin three times, with all the Coin Symbols sticking. Any new coins that land will also stick and reset the respin counter to 3. The Coins all have cash values of between 1 x and 20 x the bet or are Mini or Mega Jackpot coins. These jackpots are worth 30x, and 100x the bet, and filling all 15 positions on the grid will award the Grand jackpot of 1,000 x the bet. The feature ends when the counter runs down to zero or the Grand jackpot is awarded.
Akiva: Claws of Power is a fun game with some interesting bonus features, and the medium volatility means a good mix of wins. But the plains of Africa can still be a dangerous place, so always set a loss limit for every gambling session. Try this and Foxium's other games including Stumpy McDoodles 2 at Gala Bingo. Good Luck!
