Yggdrasil have always been inventive when it comes to the design of their slots. We’ve seen plenty of firsts from them in the themes department and Multifly! is definitely unusual as well. Sure, we’ve seen various jungle slots with wild animals. We’ve seen frogs, parrots and toucans on the reels. But we can’t remember ever having seen chameleons anywhere. Let alone such a colourful bunch.
You might be wondering, where those flies come in. We’ll explain when we tell you about the features in this slot.
The scene is set in a colourful jungle, where everything is teeming with life. The chameleons lounge above the reels. The rhythmic soundtrack adds to the atmosphere and gives it a light and fun note.
On the reels we find low value playing card symbols from 9 to A, which are almost boring to look at, but we assume they’re not meant to detract too much from the rest of the slot. The higher value symbols include a lizard, a green frog, a toucan and the parrot. The latter is worth the most at 4 times our stake for 5 of a kind.
Whilst that may seem low, remember that this slot pays 243 ways, so wins form on adjacent reels a little more easily. And we get cascading wins. So, whenever a win forms, the winning symbols are removed, leaving behind a wild symbol, and further symbols fall in from above until no more wins are created.
You can play this game from 0.10 to 75.00 per spin.
If you look closely, you’ll see little flies seeming made out of light (a little like glow worms) fluttering on each wild. Whenever a wild is formed after a win, the chameleon sitting above the reel it landed on will catch a fly off of it and the multiplier for that reel climbs by 1x.
As long as wins keep cascading and wilds are left behind, there is potential for the multipliers to climb. Since there is a chameleon above every reel, multipliers can climb above every reel. And when a win is created, every multiplier along the reels the win is a part of will be applied one after another. After no more wins land, the multipliers are reset and we keep spinning the reels normally again.
We need three scatters (the chameleon) land on reels 2, 3 and 4, we are awarded 10 free spins. The free spins work exactly like the normal base game feature, however, now the multipliers don’t reset after a loss.
Instead, they keep climbing. Wins do seem to hit a little more easily during free spins as well, so we’ve seen 2x, 3x and even 5x multipliers above the reels, which all kept multiplying the wins one after the other. It looks pretty cool when that happens.
The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) is 96.3%, which is great. But at the same time this is a highly volatile slot with a fairly low hit rate (only about 17%). As such, you will definitely need to budget carefully with your money if you want to keep playing for a bit.
That said, we didn’t find the free spins particularly hard to catch, though we may just have been lucky. And we have also been lucky with some of those accumulating multipliers – in the base game and during the free spins.
The maximum potential of Multifly! is 10,000x our stake, which is good. You will need a bunch of those higher multipliers in the free spins to achieve that, mind you.
On the whole, Multifly! from Yggdrasil is an entertaining video slot with some clever features. The theme is different but very suitable to the mechanics. As long you are careful with your budget, you may see some of those great accumulating multipliers and enjoy this one for a while.
