Brave New Metropolis World
This slot machine will take players to the past and to the future. Confusing, isn’t it? Well, let us explain. Epic City is a game which takes influence from classic science fiction narratives of urban utopias – like Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’, or Fritz Lang’s 1927 film ‘Metropolis’ in which a future city is imagined with huge high rise skyscraper as a symbol of industrial wealth of success.
With this in mind, the slot machine imagines a futuristic world from an early 20th century perspective – so you can expect to see chrome trains on bronze monorail lines and leviathan sized airships floating in-between the clouds and skyscrapers. And all of this was supposed to have happened in 1937, the time in which the game claims to be set. Dream on!
In order to create this past ideal of the future, Epic City adopts some diligent graphical features to incorporate elements of Art Deco design mixed with sheeny metallic colours and impressive machine mechanisms. The game also uses 3D rendering to give bring the whole aspect to life along with some electrifying animations whenever winning combinations of symbols are found.
Icons of Wealth and Power
The symbols of Epic City all represent aspects of ultimate wealth, power and technological achievement. For example, players will find icons that depict automobiles (classic in design, of course), a titanic ship, a juggernaut train, a golden Zeppelin and a magnificent tower block. Other icons include a statue of a man standing tall as well as a statuette of Atlas holding up the world – just to reinforce the idea of human endeavour and power.
Luckily for you punters, there’s no need to carry the world on your shoulder to reap the rewards that this slot machine offers. In fact, all it takes is a bit of luck to find the right combination of those symbols upon the 20 fixed paylines that this slot machine lays out over its 5 reels. In such an event players will be rewarded with a line bet multiplier:
|Symbol||Two on a payline||Three on a payline||Four on a payline||Five on a payline|
The wagering options of this game are fairly straightforward since there all 20 paylines are permanently fixed into position. Therefore, players simply have to choose from the following total bet options: 2.00, 4.00, 10.00 and 20.00.
Claim Your Fortune with Some Bonus Play
Anyone who makes it to the top needs a little bit of a boost to help them on their way. Players of this slot machine will get just that with a series of bonus features which might help their betting balances move in the right direction. First of all, there are the usual wild symbols which will substitute for other icons except for the scatter symbol which pay wins up to 25x the total bet value even if they don’t appear on a payline.
Players can also win 8, 12, or 20 free spins if they find 3, 4, or 5 “Free Games” icons. What’s more, these free spins include stacked wilds to boost the chances of completing winning lines as well as a randomly awarded multiplier.
There is also a bonus side game which is activated when 3 bonus scatters appear on the first, third and fifth reels. This game gives players the chance to win a variety of bonus prizes as they bring light and power back to the Epic City.
