Leander Studios is the provider behind the Alexandria: City of Fortune slot. Launched in the autumn of 2019, this game features 5 reels and an epic 1,024 ways to win. It is also surprisingly cheap to play, costing between 0.25 and 25.00 a turn. Prizes are also reasonably decent and are capped at 200x a bet in all. Of course, this slot is loosely based on the city founded by Alexander the Great in ancient Egypt, most notable for being the home to the Pharos Lighthouse. The RTP is only 95.89%, which is about the industry-standard level, but it is the special features that will really help this historical-themed slot game stand out.
To begin with, there is a wild symbol in the shape of a ship. This notable icon can substitute for any other symbols, save for scatters, and bonus icons. Leaving aside the wilds, let us explore some of those other special icons.
Scatter symbols show up as bonus scrolls. You will need at least six of them to appear on the reels to trigger free spins, and that is quite a lot for any slot. Obtaining fewer than six of these “could” trigger a re-spin round at random, and that may enable you to land a few more scatters.
Expect to see a few randomly triggered bonuses in this game, too. The Book of Knowledge round can see rays of light highlight symbols on the reels. These will then transform into mystery symbols. Another one includes the Pharos Ray Wilds. This random bonus will turn several symbols into wilds, boosting your chances of winning. The final random feature is the Exploding Symbols mode. As its name suggests, symbols can explode and spread to other parts of the reels.
The highlight of the Alexandra: City of Fortune slot machine is the free spin bonus. Depending on how many symbols you land (between 6 and 20), you could start with anything from 10 up to 25 free spins. Any of the wins which appear in this round (and use wild symbols) will be boosted by a multiplier worth up to 2x. On top of that, several multipliers can work together to give you a boosted multiplier. Finally, scatters are transformed into wild symbols, giving you double the number of wilds to boost your wins, in theory.
