CT Gaming is not the most prolific developer of slots, nor are they a name many of you will likely have heard of before. Even so, they will be aiming to change that perception with their Amazon’s Spear slot. The game first debuted in March 2019 and is a 5-reel, 25-line slot, but one with a very generous RTP of 96.62% and extremely high volatility gameplay. Notably, while this is supposed to be themed on Greek mythology (the Amazons), its graphics and imagery would not look out of place in ancient Egyptian-themed slots. Stakes in the game will cost 0.25 upwards and supports a non-progressive jackpot that is capped at around 2,000x a bet. Thus far, everything is rather conventional and will not blow slot players away. What about the special features, though?
You will find no shortage of conventional, standard paying symbols on the reels of this slot. Winning combinations formed with three to five of them will be enough to pocket a prize. However, the helmet (and bizarrely, the harp) will result in the best wins in the game.
To help you form those winning combinations, Amazon’s Spear uses a spear as a wild symbol. The titular icon can only appear on Amazon’s Spear’s three central reels but can replace all, save for the game’s scatter. It also appears regularly enough to make it considerably useful in this game. We would reckon that given the frequency of wilds and the regularity of wins, this game falls somewhere between the medium to low variance level in terms of volatility.
Amazon’s Spear has another icon worth noting - blue orb scatters. These symbols will deliver scattered cash prizes whenever they appear. However, if you land three or more of them, you will trigger a free spin feature. In this bonus round, you will get fifteen spins to play with. You can extend the longevity of the bonus by landing three or more scatters on the reels once more. The one thing that this free spin round is lacking is something else to ramp up the action. A multiplier or special wild symbol would not have amiss here. However, because neither turn up in the bonus round, we cannot help but feel as though Amazon’s Spear falls a bit flat and will fail to compete with the many other Greek mythology-themed slots out there on the net.
