Always Looking into the Future
If the truth lies in the stars, then we that is where we should go in order to get a hit about our near future. At least this is what the Saucify team thought when they designed Zodiac and its starry night sky of a background. The transparent reels let you admire the distant constellations, and with some careful observation you might be able to recognise some of them.
The reels are transparent, with round and animated symbols that come to life every time you score a winning combination across the reels. Overall, Zodiac has a simple and quite obvious look, but many thoughtful details that redeem it as well.
The command bar in the lower part of the game screen contains plenty of colourful buttons, ready to assist you once you are ready to start customising your bet settings. In order to do that with ease, check out the next section here.
The Stars Have the Answer
Zodiac is based on 5 reels with 20 paylines available in total. You can bet from 0.20 to 25 credit per spin, and all your settings are customisable thanks to the different buttons in the command bar. Choose a coin size and bet from 1 to 5 coins on the reels, then activate paylines and get the party started. You can skip ahead and play all-in thanks to the bet max button, or use the autospin mode to play with the same settings on several turns in a row.
Given its high volatility, Zodiac can prove challenging at times. Each spin is not guaranteed to yield a prize at all, and the largest reward can be quite elusive. To remedy this, you will have to play big to try and unlock larger payouts early into the game.
The basic paytable of the game is obviously filled with the 12 traditional zodiac symbols: Libra, Aries, Pisces, Taurus, Capricorn, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Gemini, Sagittarius and Aquarius, each worth up to x400. At the beginning of the game, you will be asked to choose your favourite sign, be it your own or not. This particular symbol will be worth up to x2000, and you can change your mind and choose another at any time through the game menu.
Sun and Moon
Even the bonus features of Zodiac have something to do with astrology. The sun symbol, for starters, is the wild card of the game. Wherever it lands, the star has the power to replace the zodiac symbols and help you create more winning combinations instantly.
The moon, on the other hand, is a scatter that can award free spins. 3 or more moons appearing anywhere on the reels at the same time can be worth up to 8 free spins, during which all wins are doubled. You can prolong your free spin round by finding more moon scatters along the way.
A Bright Future
Zodiac is a high-risk slot game with relatively simple rules and a predictable set of reel symbols. The graphics environment is very pleasant to look at, but don’t forget that high variance means that taking risks is inevitable in order to win big.
Making use of the scatters is the obvious remedy to the situation, but keep in mind that they do not guarantee any payout at all – we had to win several free spin bonuses before scoring a prize when we tested the game. On a side note, if you are looking for a horoscope-themed slot game with a lower variance, you would be better off checking out Zodiac Supernova from V. Fusion.
