About the Game
Poltava is based on a historic battle of the 1700s. It is very well put together with amazing graphics that are accompanied by solemn and stoic battle music. The online slots game delivers brilliantly in gameplay with its exciting bonus rounds and betting strategies.
Keeping true to its theme, Poltava features playing card symbols fashioned in archaic ways to complement the theme. Those, however attractive, are the lower value symbols. The higher value symbols are as follows:
- Infantry (Soldier)
- Cavalry (Horse)
- Artillery (Canon)
The Wild symbol in this online slots game is the Poltava’s logo itself. It can take the place of any symbol (with the exception of the Lion Scatter) to form a winning combination.
The Scatter symbol in Poltava is represented by the captivating Lion symbol. The Scatter will appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. This will trigger the Free Spins Round.
FREE SPINS ROUND (FLAME OF WAR)
The Free Spins Round is triggered when you land 3 or more Scatters. You will receive 3 initial Free Spins. If you land additional Scatters during the Free Spins, an extra spin (per Scatter) will be added to the total.
Furthermore, the Scatters that you landed in the base game will be frozen in place during the Free Spins bonus. They will function as Wilds during the Free Spins which will further increase your chances of landing winning combinations.
RESPIN BONUS (MARCHING REELS)
This bonus is triggered if you land 4 identical high paying symbols (Cavalry, Infantry, Artillery) that take up an entire reel.
In this bonus, the troops will travel through the reels in order to create winning combinations. More symbols will be included to the left and if identical symbols are added, a repin is rewarded!
