Endorphina has produced a completely original slot game based on the ancient country of Urartu. The name Urartu refers to the old kingdom in the mountainous region between Mesopotamia, the Iranian plateau and the Caucasus mountains. The power of the kingdom of Urartu was at its highest in the ninth century BC, but was conquered by the Medes in the early sixth century BC. The descendants of this old country are the present day Armenians.
Urartu slot game has five reels and just ten pay lines. There are high jackpots and prizes to be won in this slot game, so try to play as many of the lines as possible. Coin values and the number of coins placed per line can also be adjusted. There is a 9000-coin jackpot to be won when playing only one coin per pay line, and that will be awarded for five of the Mountain symbols appearing on the reels at the same time.
Cultural Elements reflected in the Symbols
The background of Urartu slot game is a desert landscape, with snow capped mountains in the distance. The reels seem to be placed on a huge block of grey stone, and there are no decorations at all. The music seems Oriental and lilting, fitting the idea of old kingdoms. The symbols and graphics reflect the cultural elements connected to this ancient civilisation. Endorphina has provided some stunning symbol animations whenever you make a win.
Symbols in the Urartu online slots game include a stone Lion and a stone Eagle, and a Shield, and Helmet and Spears, all well designed. The lower paying symbols are the classic playing cards from nine through to the ace, displayed in a stylish grey font. The symbols with the highest value are the King and Queen of Urartu, both wearing traditional dress. If you find five of each of them anywhere on the reels, you will win 750 times your original stake.
The last two symbols in Urartu casino slot game are the Wild symbol and the Scatter symbol. The Wild is represented by the Sun rising over the mountains, and this symbol can substitute for any other symbol in the game to form a winning combination, apart from the Scatter. Any wins made by the Wilds helping to form a winning combination, will be doubled. Five Wilds appearing together on an active pay line will win you the jackpot of nine thousand times your initial wager.
Wilds and Scatters and Free Spins
The Scatter symbol in Urartu slot game is the Spiral symbol, and can appear on all five reels at online casino NZ. Two or more Scatters appearing anywhere on the reels will award you a winning payout, but three or more will award you a free spins bonus game as well. You will be given fifteen free spins, as well as a multiplier of three on all wins made during the bonus round.
In Urartu slot you can try to increase your winnings by taking part in the Try Risk feature. Press the button after any win, and you will be taken to a screen where you will find four face down cards and one up turned card. You select one of the four face down cards, and if it is of a higher value than the up turned card, your winnings will be doubled. If it is a lower value card, you will lose your winnings and return to the base game.
