Microgaming has introduced the newest member of its “untamed family”, Untamed Crowned Eagle, which is a follow-up to its previous ‘Untamed’ slots: Bengal Tiger, Giant Panda, and Wolf Pack.
Untamed Crowned Eagle is another 243-payline slot in keeping with the familiar theme of the Untamed series, including amazing graphics, the Lucky Nudge feature, Collect-a-Wild feature, Your Gamble feature, and free spins.
Given the name of the game, it is hardly surprising that the slot’s symbols feature four different eagles in addition to the traditional 10, J, Q, K, A symbols, Untamed Crowned Eagle serves as the Wild symbol, and the Scatter symbol is an eagle’s eye.
Lucky Nudge feature:
With a little luck, a peeking eagle eye (scatter) symbol may auto-nudge from above or below the reels to trigger the Free Spins feature.
Free Spins feature:
3, 4, or 5 eagle eye symbols award 10 free spins. During free spins, there is a “Soaring Wild” which takes to the skies in search of a random symbol to turn wild. The Soaring Wild wins are multiplied by a random 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 10x multiplier.
Each Untamed Crowned Eagle symbol (wild) that appears will activate a wild icon displayed beneath the reel. Collecting 4 icons turns the entire reel wild for 4 spins.
Your Gamble feature:
This new Gamble feature allows you to adjust your Gamble odds according to your preference. It also allows you to gamble a single win as many times as you like, whilst still allowing you to bank a portion of it. As long as you have a win amount in your win box you can gamble all or a portion of it. This gamble feature is all about your flexibility and choice of gamble amount (up to 20x).
BIGWINPICTURES’ opinion on the slot:
Yet again Microgaming has succeeded in creating a game that is really enjoyable both in visual and audio terms. Our test team gave this game a thorough run and it has to be said that it doesn’t really offer anything new to those players who are familiar with the other slots in the Untamed series.
It is worth noting that in practice, all opportunities to score really big wins (+1000 x total bet win) clearly rely on the Collect-a-Wild feature.
In terms of volatility, the slot is clearly more player-friendly (or of a lower volatility) than its predecessors given that the free spins don’t result in such big payouts as they did in the previous slots in the Untamed series. Instead, they consistently pay about 20-75x your total bet.
The Your Gamble feature remains the favourite of the BigWinPictures test team, because it can be used to quickly multiply an unimpressive free spins payout. For this feature alone, the slot is worth giving a go!
