There is no shortage of animal themed slots online and ever since Microgaming launched the monster success Mega Moolah in 2006, developers have been trying to copy their success with countless animal slots. Some of them are really good, but nothing like the original.
So what can we expect when one of our favourite developers Yggdrasil, enters the animal kingdom and gives us Multifly? It’s a relatively simple slot in terms of gameplay and features, but with high volatility and a max win of 10,000 x your wager.
This slot comes with five reels, three rows, 243 paylines, and five sleazy lizards that control five individual multipliers with their long tongues. A lizard is not the animal most people think of when they want to have a good time, but Multifly might just change that.
Yggdrasil is one of the most innovative and exciting Swedish game developers in recent years with slots such as Wolf Hunters, Dark Joker Rizes, Vikings Go Berzerk, the beautiful Orient Express and the hysterical Penguin City.
We don’t come across many slots stacked with lizards, but Yggdrasil pulls it off in their typically stylish way and even though Multifly has very few features, the slots is one of their best slots of 2020. It starts with the dropdown feature, which is basically just another way of saying cascading reels which removes all winning symbols before new symbols fall in place. It’s a bit like getting a re-spin every time you win.
Then there’s the Lizard Multipliers that are active both during the main game and free spins. The lizards sit on top of every reel and with their tongues they will trigger the multiplier every time a wild symbol appears.
Wilds can show up on a spin or via a Dropdown win. Either way, the lizard on the top of the reel will eat the wild symbol and leave a x 1 multiplier in its place. You can easily end up with several reels with multipliers and for every Dropdown win, all multipliers will increase by x 1.
In other words you could end up having a x 2 multiplier on reel two, a x 3 multiplier on reel three, and a x 4 multiplier on reel five. Now land a winning payline and your win will be multiplied by x 2, then x 3, and finally x 4. That’s how you can end up with wins of up to 10,000 x your bet!
Free spins are won every time you land three scatter symbols on the same spin. The scatter can only land on reels two, three and four, and you always win 10 free spins. Due to the increased potential for big winnings, you can’t re-trigger free spins. Cascading reels and the multipliers work the same way as during the main game, except for the fact that the multipliers do not reset before all free spins are over.
We don’t normally come across slots with lizards, but Yggdrasil has no problem making the rather odd theme work. Graphically the slot is wonderful and with a vivid backdrop of a mysterious jungle and lizards that begin to grow on us in just a few spins, it’s a wonderful gaming experience. Yggdrasil has done an excellent job capturing the atmosphere of the jungle’s deep forests, and aesthetically wise Multifly is one of the best slots we’ve seen from Yggdrasil in some time. The soundtrack is also one of the better ones and really helps set the mood. For once, we never feel like turning the sound off.
Yggdrasil have really made a name for themself over the last few years and new casinos are adding their slots all the time.
