Shadow Gods Slots

The first image you see when looking for a slot game to play is the introductory image that also features the game title. When you look at the one for Shadow Gods, it is impossible to turn away. Believe us – we tried!

The game takes a familiar theme and runs with it, giving you plenty to get your teeth into. If you want to know more about these gods, you’re in the best place to make it happen.

Which developer created the game?

Shadow Gods comes to us from the brilliant team at Realtime Gaming.

Should you expect to see a practice version?

Yes – RTG games tend to have this option available for everyone to try.

Finding out more about the Shadow Gods theme

A godly theme is obviously in action here, but if you were thinking of the Greek gods, your geography is a little out. We’re going to be introduced to a couple of ancient Egyptian gods instead – Horus and Anubis. They appear in the striking image that was created to promote the game.

Design features

Maybe you don’t feel the design of a game is that important. We get that, but we also feel it can play a role all its own. It does here, for sure – it’s difficult to think of this game being as striking as it is if the design wasn’t as good as this.

Reels, icons, and more in Shadow Gods

This slot game gives you five reels and three rows of symbols to watch as the reels spin. While there is a good array of progressive jackpot games at RTG, this one doesn’t belong in that collection.

We always like to see multiple wilds in a slot game, and we are rewarded with that very idea here. Horus and Anubis both appear as wild, sitting on reels two and four, respectively. Each one possesses a nudge feature. Since both wilds are shown as three icons high, if one appears only partially in view, it is nudged until it takes over the whole reel.

Watch out for gold coins appearing on the reels as well. These always display a random amount and are needed in a special portion of the game. More about that in a moment.

You can also look out for a scatter symbol. This is displayed as a stunning Pharaoh’s mask.

How many paylines are there?

You get 50 here. They are adjustable, but we suggest covering the lot, so you don’t miss out on any prizes.

Bets you can choose from in Shadow Gods

You’ll need deeper pockets to play this game, which does not qualify as a penny slot. The smallest you can use is worth four cents. With 50 lines to bet on, you’d be spending $2 per spin even at the lowest end of the range.

The paytable is well designed too

We like the paytable, which brings with it lots of game info and the chance to understand how everything works before you play.

Does Shadow Gods include a bonus feature?

It does. You must look for six or more gold coins in a single spin to unlock it. When this occurs, the triggering coins are frozen. You then get three respins of all other reel positions. Finding additional gold coins means those are frozen and your respin count goes back to the original three.

The process continues until you either fill the reels with gold coins, leaving no positions unfilled, or you run out of respins. If you find anything between six and 14 coins by the end of the feature, you will see the prizes on each added up to provide you with your prize. If all 15 spots are filled with coins, expect the Grand Prize to come your way.

Free spins are ready for you too

This game keeps on giving, doesn’t it? The Pharaoh’s mask is the secret to unleashing six free games, with three or more required to make this happen.

While six freebies don’t sound that generous, you can play them with one of two features in place. The first option is to choose the presence of the Shadow Gods to occupy reels two and four as fixed wilds for those games. The second option is the Treasure Spins option, where the fifth reel is filled with gold coins. You’ve then got the six freebies to locate three more coins to unlock the bonus.

The free games are also retriggerable.

Do we know what the return to player value is?

No, Shadow Gods wasn’t released with this info available.

How highly do we rate this game?

We rarely give away a score of 10/10, but we are going to get close to it here with 9.5/10. If only it was in 3D…

How much could be won?

The best outcome is a huge prize worth 50,000x your triggering bet. That’s for a single spin.

Play for entertainment only

Shadow Gods certainly provides you with plenty of that. This is a great example of how a slot game can make the best of any theme you can think of – even one as well-worn as ancient Egypt.

Would your budget allow you to play for real?

Only you will know the answer to this. If you prefer penny slots, this one is going to be well out of your range.

You can try this slot game on mobile platforms too

As you would expect from a new slot release, Shadow Gods works just fine on Android, iOS, and other platforms.
