Mighty Trident is brought to you by Novomatic even though it was created by Mazooma (a Novomatic Group company). With 5 reels and 20 paylines, it is playable across all devices from 20p to £100 a spin. The game is based on Poseidon (the god of the sea) so has a Greek mythology theme.
Graphically, you can see Mazooma’s influence as it looks fantastic – you will see tridents, Poseidon himself as well as other Greek Gods on the reels. This game is all about the Compass which sits above the reels – following a win, the compass spins with the reels stepping in the direction the compass needle points to. This gives you the chance to win time and time again from every spin – the reels continue to move until no win appears on the reels.
In the base game, there is the Poseidon Bonus feature which is made up of 4 randomly activated bonus features. You have the Win Spin where reels will spin from a losing combination to give you a winning one. The Reel Morph sees reels morphing into a winning position (from a losing one).
The Reverse Step sees reels stepping back in the opposite direction after an initial winning combination – this continues until a losing position is reached. Finally, there is the Bonus Win with a simple cash prize awarded at the end of a spin. Bear in mind that the compass is active giving you more opportunities to win.
The main attraction is the Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 free spins scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously – this will give you 5 free spins as well as super stacked symbols. You can also trigger an additional 5 free spins for getting 3 scatters on the reels mentioned (giving you 10 in total).
More importantly, super stacked symbols mean that extra stacks of the top 5 high value symbols will appear meaning larger wins. Furthermore, the compass is also active rewarding you for winning combinations.
I found Mighty Trident to be a medium variance slot with the bigger wins coming in the free spins feature (due to the super stacked symbols). The theme is superb with graphics/animations to match – it has a real epic feel to it. Let’s just hope the power of the gods is on your side. If you like Greek mythology, Medusa 2 by NextGen Gaming is very good as to is Lord of the Ocean by Novomatic.
