NetEnt has been behind numerous great slots over the years and one that many players have a close relationship with, is Victorious which NetEnt launched back in 2011. Almost 10 years on and the slot is still going strong.
So strong in fact, that NetEnt now has made it part of their MAX series. The MAX series is a series of slots where you as the player get to choose what volatility to play with. Want lots of smaller wins all the time or are you more into bigger wins up to 7,000 x bet?
With Victorious MAX you decide. The slot is the same as the classic slot from 2011, with five reels, 243 paylines and an impressive RTP of 96,95%. As far as volatility goes, well you decide. Go for classic mode and it’s medium with a max win of 1,500 x your stake, but if you play the MAX version, it goes to high volatility and the max win increases to 7,000 x your wager.
When Victorious was released in 2011 it was one of the very first slots to offer 243 paylines. Micogamig was first offering this many lines with their slot Burning Desire, but NetEnt was quick to follow suit, and 10 years on not many players remember Burning Desire.
Victorious on the other hand, is still going strong even though it doesn’t offer up much in terms of cool features or lively animations. On top of a traditional wild symbol that can replace all other symbols except the scatter, the only special features are free spins and a multiplier.
Land three scatters and you win 5 free spins, four scatters gets you 15 free spins, and one scatter on all five reels will see you start the bonus round with 20 free spins. A great start that only gets better by the fact that just two scatters during free spins will give you an additional 15 free spins.
The multiplier is active on every single free spin and depending on if you play the Classic or MAX version, it will be x 3 or x 6 respectively.
For a slot developer to re-launch a slot, clone or just a reskin, is nothing new. It happens all the time and sometimes it works really well. In the case of Victorious MAX, NetEnt has done it rather well. The theme is exactly as it was in 2011 and the same goes for symbols and features.
The roman theme is popular enough, but we would have liked to see NetEnt upgrade Victorious MAX a little bit more. Not because the graphics are poor, because it’s not, but more because the slot deserves it after many years of trusted service. Making it a MAX slot and increasing the win to x 7,000 surely helps, but it doesn’t carry Victorious MAX into a new decade.
We were a big fan of Victorious when it launched in 2011 and it’s nice to see it still kicking about. The slot makes a great addition to NetEnts MAX Series and we are sure it will go on for years to come.
Yeah,we know, another ancient Egypt go-find-the -tresaure-slot…it’s getting harder and harder to distinguish them all from each other! Thankfully Play n Go’s Ankh of Anubis offers something a bit different from the other Egypt Themed titles out there. The set up is a pretty straight forward. It comes with a 3-4-4-4-3 reel format with 576 […]
We all know Bonanza by now, so let’s revisit this modern classic! So why is this slot so hyped? Bonanza is a 6-reel gold mine themed slot that made the Megaway mechanics big. Bonanza came with a bunch of new features such as cascading reels, the extra horizontal reels, the reactions function and massive amounts […]
Jammin jars by Pushgaming is one of my favorite slots! It comes with a theoretical max payout of 20.000X. As always with Pushgaming the volatility is brutal. But if you manage your bankroll and have patience, this slot can really print serious money. The Rainbow feature appears randomly in the basegame and add one or […]
Classic slots, often called fruit machines, keep hanging around and no matter how great slots have become over the years in terms of 3D graphics and special features, the classic just won’t let go. 2 Players simply love them and developers all need at least one classic slot in their portfolio, even the developers that […]
Surrounded by amazing 3D slot machines, it’s easy to forget that many players still appreciate the simpler slots, with what most people today would call lousy graphics, but can you call it bad if the developer meant for it to be that way? That’s what you’ll be asking yourself when you play Roasty McFry and […]
Even though we find ourselves in a time where we are surrounded by slots offering a variety of themes, phenomenal graphics, 3D animations and huge progressive jackpots, the old classics are still going strong. One can almost go so far as to say that the old three reel classics are on their way to make […]
Slot machines should be fun and it’s not all about big wins anymore. Over the years, the entertainment factor has become just as important and few take the entertainment factor to such heights as the Swedish developer Thunderkick does. In January 2020, they gave us Esqueleto Explosivo 2, a slot so entertaining you won’t even […]
Cazino Zeppelin was launched by Yggdrasil in October 2015 and quickly became a huge success for the Swedish developer. Not only does it have fantastic graphics, but it also has many similarities to one of the biggest ever slot machines, Dead or Alive from NetEnt. Just like Dead or Alive, Cazino Zeppelin comes with a […]
One would think that classic slots would be faded out as graphics and features keep getting better and more entertaining, but there is something special with slots like this and developers such as ELK Studios, NetEnt, GIG Games and Nolimit City are all still coming up with new classic slots, often referred to as modern […]
For most players, Big Time Gaming means Megaways slots with more than 100,000 paylines and that’s quite natural. After all, it wasn’t until they launched Bonanza in 2016 that they started to make a name for themselves, but don’t think for a second that Megaways is the only thing Big Time Gaming knows how to […]
Fans of Big Time Gaming know the Australian developer has fondness for making slots inspired by bit hit songs. So far they have given us slots based on songs from bands like Electric Six (Danger! High Voltage), Europe (The Final Countdown) and Dio (Holy Diver). This time it’s the British band The Cult and their […]
Raging Rex was the first slot machine Play’n GO launched in 2019 and they started the new year as strong as they ended 2018. This Jurassic Park-inspired slot will delight many players with its six reels, 4,096 paylines and phenomenal features like walking wilds, sticky wilds, and unlimited raging free spins. Play’n GO has been […]
Our spinning tin of joy has come a long way indeed; from chrome, gears, and levers, to lightning-fast buttons, reels, and pay lines – all masterfully blown into life thanks to some real state of the art video graphics. Many new video slots sport up to 5 reels. When it comes to how many pay lines a video slot can have these days, the numbers are as easy to predict as the winning numbers of a jackpot, they’re simply up in the air. Some games come with fixed pay lines, while other slots give you the possibility to bet on paylines. New paylines can suddenly pop up and offer something fun and exciting while playing, like free spins, for example, all video slots are a bit different, just like the number of pay lines and your gaming options. At Casino Hacks we think this is just great, because players are different, and we all favor different games and features. Just remember, before you spin away, go a little easy on the betting. If you’re new to the online casino and slot games, a free spin run is a smart way to start, just so you get the knack of the game and different features.
Options and new chances really are the name of the game here, so naturally, slot providers are constantly working on finding new smart ways to add surprising and fun bonus features. We see this all the time when new popular slots hit the casinos, packed with new options – all there to give you as a player another chance to win for example via an extra free spin or an entertaining boost option, like a multiplier feature.
Truly great slots become classics, like Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst – and reviews are always a smart way to get more out of the games. Reviews of branded slots are especially smart to check out since the RTP – the return to player figures – for branded slots sometimes can be as generous as the Night King in the epic saga. This is not always the case for all branded slots of course, and we’re not saying here that this is the case for GOT either, just pointing out some facts. When it comes to quality and entertainment levels, we’ve seen some astonishing development in the last couple of years where some truly amazing movie and TV concepts have been crafted into epic video slots – Game of Thrones, Jurassic World, Gladiator, Planet of the Apes, Age of Spartans, Jumanji, Beowulf, Mighty Kong, Jungle Books, Emoji Planet and Beauty and the Beast, to name a few.

Let’s take an example, it’s much easier that way. Let’s take a great slot, one we really love, let’s go for Jammin’ Jars. Now, this is a pearl of a slot because of the potential it’s got, to be precise, the theoretical potential here is 20 000X. Volatility, on the other hand, can be brutal, so make sure you manage your bankroll. If you manage your bankroll, keep your cool and play this slot the smart way, it might just show you the way to some serious cash. But, like with all slots, you can never be sure, of course.
– RTP: Return to player figures are at 96.51, not bad at all.
– Volatility: High. You might want to stay calm and wait for the bonus game when that comes along, you can get lucky.
– Overall impression: A gem of a game. Stay cool and stick to your game plan and this can be a winner.
