Cannonballs and cavalry fly across the reels as Lucksome takes SOTW

Lucksome has placed players in the centre of a 19th-century battlefield with its latest slot sequel, Napoleon 2, which showcased stacked symbols and sticky wild wilds to claim our Slot of the Week title. 

With battle commencing on a 6×3 reel grid with 4,096-ways to win, Napoleon 2 uses medium-high volatility with an RTP of 96.24 per cent. The game offers players a maximum win of x20,000 their stake through a variety of warmongering bonus features, including the studio’s Fat Stacks mechanic. 

Bryan Upton, Founder and Director at Lucksome, stated: “Napoleon is back on the battlefield but this time he is armed with some truly powerful bonus features that give players the tactical advantage in their fight for potentially big wins.”

Bonus text scatters are available, triggering 10, 12 or 15 free spins when four, five or six scatters land on the same spin, respectively. 

Napoleon Bonaparte represents the wild symbol for this game, substituting for all symbols other than the bonus scatters. These wilds can only appear on reels two to six. 

Gold Napoleon wilds are also available, triggering a bonus mega streak feature each time they contribute to a winning combination.

Throughout the game, the Fat Stacks mechanic causes any two identical symbols in the same reel to join together, with the symbol highest in the reel cascading down to join and double-up with the lower symbol. 

This then allows for new symbols to drop in from the top of the board, creating more ways to win. The game boasts up to one million ways to win. 

Fat Stacks symbols that double up can then also triple up, working as either two or three symbols on the same payline when wins are formed using the stacked symbols. 

Additionally, when one, two, three, four or five standard or gold Napoleon wilds contribute to the same winning combination, the payout will be enhanced by respective multipliers of x2, x4, x8, x16 or x32. 

When gold wild symbols contribute to a win, the mega streak feature will cause all symbols in the winning combination – including the wilds – to stay sticky on the board while a free respin occurs around them. 

This feature will then be repeated when more symbols drop in and contribute to the winning combination. 

During the free spins, all wilds are golden, and each time a golden wild contributes to a win and causes the mega streak feature to occur, it will subsequently increase the multiplier for the next wild wins. 

Furthermore, this free spins feature can be retriggered by scatter symbols and can also be bought for the price of x150 the player’s stake. 

Johan John, Senior Product Manager at Lucksome, added: “The maths and mechanics behind this game are something else, combining a number of innovative trademarked features such as Fatstacks, respins and DoubleLux. This makes for an explosive player experience brought to life by striking design and authentic sound.

“This is a great addition to our growing portfolio of games, and we look forward to seeing players fire up the reels on Napoleon 2 and do battle with those one million ways to win with each spin.”
