A winged white stallion is the star of Pegasus Rising, a Greek myth-themed slot powered by Blueprint Gaming. It’s a 5 reel, 40 payline game that comes with high end design and some unusual features. Watch out as Pegasus can increase the number of rows and paylines in play. You’ll also find free spins and a streak feature. Play from between 50p and £250 per spin.
Blueprint Gaming has obviously put plenty of thought into the design of Pegasus Rising and the results are impressive. The visuals have a glossy, movie cartoon feel. Joining the lower value playing cards are Medusa, the Kraken, Poseidon and Zeus. The king of the Gods is the top symbol, paying 200 coins if you land 5 on a single payline.
Central to the game’s best action is Pegasus. The flying horses acts as the game’s wild and replaces all other symbols. It also acts as a scatter. Landing 3 of them on the same spin triggers 1 of the game’s pair of bonus feature. This is the Free Spins Bonus feature.
You’ll receive 3 free spins to start with. Keep a special eye out for Pegasus here as he will give you 1 extra free spins whenever he lands. Additionally, Pegasus also transforms the number of rows in play. Whenever the horse lands, the number of rows increases by 1. Land a number of Pegasus wilds and the number of rows can increase to 8 and the paylines to 80, greatly boosting your winning chances.
There is also a Colossal Streak feature which is triggered by filling the whole of reel 1 with the same matching symbol. A re-spin then follows. If you land a matching symbol or a wild, it will join the cluster and another re-spin is awarded. These continue until there’s a re-spin where no matching symbol or wild hits.
There’s no shortage of Greek myth slots in the online casino ether – think Zeus from WMS and Titan Storm from NextGen Gaming. Pegasus Rising offers something a little different. The design is very high end. The visuals wouldn’t look out of place in a TV or movie cartoon and the orchestral soundtrack has a suitably epic feel.
The range of extras isn’t wide but they both offer some decent potential. We especially like the streak which can deliver some top action if you trigger with a high value symbol. If you’re a fan of all things ancient or just fancy a spin on a game that’s well designed and offers some solid features, then Pegasus Rising should fit the bill.
