About Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls has one of the most original and inventive methods of dishing out special bonuses of any slot. This is a good thing because the title of this Yggdrasil Gaming developed slot has little to nothing to do with the theme and classic slot imagery which appears on its reels. Lovers of pachinko-style games will appreciate the bonus round in Niagara Falls, but there is also a more conventional gaming experience to be had, too.

This landmark-themed slot offers up a 5-reel, 20-line (fixed) gaming structure, with players able to wager anything from a floor of 20p a game up to £400 a spin. Prizes are a touch on the small side, but there is a surplus of ways to snap up wins in this release, which is a medium variance game with an RTP rate of 96.20%. Both wilds and Niagara Falls stamp symbols can dish out the top prize of 10x your bet in this game.

Special features

As mentioned, wilds can deliver top prizes in the game. However, they can also substitute for any other icons you may need to win a line save for bonus icons. Those symbols appear as barrels. Those bonus symbols will trigger a free spin round if three appear on the reels.

Below every reel will be a special feature pocket or nothing at all. Above the reels is a Shake Meter. At the end of each spin, a golden coin may appear above the reels. If it does, it can be dropped down the reels (in a pachinko-style game) to land in one of the pockets mentioned above. Players will be able to land a trail of wilds following the coins route, free spins, a “shake”, stacked symbol re-spin, or a multiplier worth up to 5x, depending on the pocket the coin landed in.

Shakes will see more coins falls down the pachinko reels, to potentially offer players further bonuses. At the end of each spin, a Cash Fall bonus may occur at random which offers additional goodies, with 2x multiplier Super Coins forming a part of this round. It is worth noting that these “shakes” can be collected and used all at once to trigger features, too.

Bonus features

Pachinko features aside, Niagara Falls also offers up a generic free spins round, triggered when three bonus barrels appear on the first, third and fifth reels of the base game. A total of 5 free games are dished out to players. However, if a wild icon lands below a bonus symbol, the reel or reels on which this occurred will become wild reels for the duration of this round, which cannot be retriggered.

Overview

Niagara Falls offers completely revolutionary gameplay. The inclusion of the pachinko-style feature has not yet been seen in the online slot world and will undoubtedly attract plenty of players to give it a go. There isn’t a whole lot of thematic imagery in this game, but with the special features being what they are, few players will care much about that.
