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.
