Solar Disc is a 6 reel, 26 payline slot from IGT that is a popular land-based game. Playable from 50p to £500 a spin on all devices, the mighty sun god beams waves of wilds for big wins – it comes with a unique Solar Disc feature where each Solar Disc reveals symbols that become wild – there’s also a Free Spins feature where you get 10 free spins as well as Solar Discs on every free spin.
Visually, Solar Disc looks superb and has an Aztec feel to it – based on the mighty sun god, Huitzilopochtli, you will see ancient coins, keys, totem masks and chalices on the reels. You’ll also come across bears and big cats – they both reward you with 5 times your stake for 6 in combination. There’s also a wild symbol that replaces all symbols bar the Solar Disc and Bonus scatter.
Look out for the Solar Disc symbol appearing on any reel – when it does, the Solar Disc feature is triggered. Here, each Solar Disc symbol reveals a symbol that turns all instances of that symbol wild. If you get multiple Solar Discs, you could benefit from quite a few wilds on the reels.
It gets better in the Free Spins Bonus feature which is played when 1 Bonus symbol lands anywhere on reel 1 as well as 1 or more Solar Disc symbols landing on the other reels – you will be rewarded with 10 free spins. Now, a Solar Disc symbol is guaranteed to land on each reel that a Solar Disc symbol appeared when triggering the feature – this happens on every single free spin.
If you managed to get a Solar Disc symbol on every reel (bar reel 1) on triggering the Free Spins Bonus feature, the rewards can be huge. In fact, this medium variance game can payout 500 times your stake on every spin/free spin – the likelihood of achieving the bigger wins increases in the Free Spins Bonus feature.
I really like Solar Disc – it looks great and has 2 great bonus features. 1 thing I would improve is the value of the symbols which would result in a high max win per spin result. Saying that, the Solar Disc feature triggers frequently so big wins are possible overall. If you want something more explosive payouts wise, IGT’s Electric Tiger is recommended.
