Nostradamus Prophecy is an Ash Gaming title with 5 reels and 243 paylines. Playable from 25p a spin, it’s based on the French medicine man who has made many correct predictions on the future. You have a Nostradamus Predictions feature in the base game where you can benefit from a cash prize, a random multiplier or a reel modifier. Reel modifiers are found too in the Free Spins Bonus feature where you can get up to 15 free spins with 3 reel modifiers – my favourite is the Tsunami modifier which awards up to 3 wild reels per free spin. You also have the Planets Bonus feature where the planets can align to give you cash prizes.
Nostradamus Prophecy is powered by Ash Gaming and is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot which can be played from just 25p to £50 a spin. The game is based on the French medicine man who published collection of prophecies that have predicted many major world events.
The graphics/animations are superb as you are taken back to 16th century France with a castle in the backdrop – you will see olde worlde style symbols with telescopes, scrolls, timers, quills and Nostradamus himself on the reels – Nostradamus and the wild (the crescent moon) are the highest paying symbols as they both reward you with 500 times your line bet if you get 5 on a payline.
During the base game, you have the Nostradamus Predictions feature – a scroll can unroll with Nostradamus predicting a certain feature. You have a random multiplier which applies to all way wins, a reel modifier feature (either Earthquake, Lightning or Tsunami – more details below) on the current spin and a big cash win.
Look out for the planets Bonus symbol which is the scatter – when it appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously, you will trigger the Planets Bonus feature. The planets start orbiting the sun with a multiplier awarded when a planet stops on the win line. There are 6 planets which means up to 6 prizes on offer.
The Free Spins Bonus feature is played when you get 3 or more free spins globe symbols anywhere in view – 3 will give you 5 free spins with any 1 reel modifier selected, 4 will give you 10 free spins and any 2 reel modifiers selected whilst 5 will give you 15 free spins and enables all 3 reel modifiers. When a reel modifier is enabled, it remains active for a total of 5 free spins – furthermore, modifier symbols become wild.
The Earthquake modifier causes random reel symbols to fall away with enhanced symbols replacing them – this occurs after every free spin. The Lightning modifier strikes on random reel positions turning up to 4 symbols into wild (again, after every free spin). Lastly there is the Tsunami modifier which randomly turns 1 to 3 reels into stacked wilds (after every free spin).
Nostradamus Prophecy is certainly an entertaining slot game – the soundtrack is a little creepy but the game looks fantastic. On the variance scale, it sits somewhere in the middle with balanced payouts throughout. I found the Tsunami modifier in the Free Spins Bonus feature to be the most lucrative as up to 3 wild reels can be had on every free spin. If you like Ash Gaming titles, I highly recommend you play Full Moon Fortunes which is highly volatile.
