Take a deeper look at your destiny with the Amazing Link Fates, the online slot from SpinPlay Games. Greek-themed slots typically feature the powerhouses of Zeus and co, but this game showcases the Fates, the shadowy figures who allegedly control the lives of humans. You might be wondering what lies in store for you, particularly whether the Fates have a potential top x5300 payout lined up for your future!
SpinPlay Games are one of the smaller independents, and they've partnered with Microgaming for this slot. If the title sounds a little familiar, that's because this game is the latest instalment in the Amazing Link series. Other slot games have a more Greek vibe, with Amazing Link Apollo and Amazing Link Zeus starting out with the Irish-themed Amazing Link Riches. It's now the turn of the Fates to step into the limelight, but if you've played any of the previous Amazing Link slots, you'll have a good idea about what to expect.
The play takes place on a 5x3 board that includes 20 paylines. Betting starts at 0.20 and can be increased up to 50.00. Volatility is medium, so there should be a relatively steady flow of average-sized payouts; it's harder to get the really big prizes in this slot.
There’s a very mystical atmosphere about the design of this slot, with a trio of ethereal figures standing over a luminous pit. The action takes place in the centre of a forest, but with glowing skies and twinkling dust, it quickly becomes clear there’s something different about this clearing.
The low pay are represented by the royal playing cards, each in a different colour. The premium symbols nod towards the theme of the slot with a star, a sun, a crescent moon and an acropolis, with a prize of x5 for a full line of the top symbol.
Although most people are familiar with the big gods of Ancient Greece, the Fates are far less well known. Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos are the names of the trio, and they were responsible for spinning the threads of fate, dispensing it and then finally cutting it at the point of death, respectively.
The three Fates take part in the game as a wild and may appear either partially visible or in full; if it's the latter, they will cover a whole reel.
The tree of life is the scatter symbol; land three in a single turn, and you'll unlock the free spins feature.
You’ll be able to pick the type of free spins bonus you want to play, each of which has a slightly different offer:
You can only unlock some of these options by playing through the others first.
Back in the base game, if you land six or more Amazing symbols at once, you'll unlock the Amazing Link feature. You'll start with a new grid, with the triggering Amazing symbols remaining as sticky. You can only land blanks or blue orbs with a cash value every time you spin the reels. You'll be with three respins, but it will also become sticky every time a cash symbol lands, and your respins will reset. If you manage to fill every position with a blue cash symbol, you'll collect the Mega Jackpot of x5000.
Returning to the base game once more, you'll notice that the three Fates also collect the Amazing symbols whenever they land. This may randomly trigger the Pick feature at any time. In this round, you'll need to select symbols to find three matching jackpots to win the prize. The Mini (x20), Minor (x50), Major (x500) and Mega (x5000) can all be won.
Amazing Link Fates will introduce many players to the Fates in an online slot that's creative and atmospheric. The peaceful vibe belies the fact that SpinPlay Games have packed the reels full of fun features that can send your prize total soaring. After playing this slot, we're confident you'll be saying "Zeus who??"
