The unusual 3-4-3-4-3 reel formation offers innovative gameplay with multiple free spins options, stacked and sticky wilds, and respins to help you track down your quarry.

  • A pair of nunchucks, an automatic pistol, a Gatling gun, and Aurora herself are the higher-paying symbols.
  • There are 4 different types of wilds, depicted as Aurora’s beastly prey and a standard wild symbol. They all substitute for any other symbol, except the scatter
  • The types of wild are stacked wilds, sticky wild stacks that trigger a respin, stacked wilds with a cash bonus, and a regular wild.
  • A massive 4x4 with attached rockets is the scatter and activates free spins as well as respins.

Bonus Features

Free Spins

If you land 2 scatters on the reels, this will trigger a respin, giving you the chance to add a third scatter which will set off the free spins mode. You will need to choose from the following 3 free spins options with ascending volatility:

The first option is Sandstorm free spins which gives you 12 free spins and any expanding or stacked wilds pay out 1.5x to 2x your stake. This feature offers a maximum potential of 2000x your stake.

The medium volatility option is Danger Zone free spins where you will receive 8 free spins. On each spin, up to 5 random wilds will appear on the reels. The most you can win with this choice is 3000x your bet.

The most volatile option is The Sub free spins which gives you 5 free spins. At the start of each spin, a reel is marked, and if a stacked or expanding wild lands on that reel, it becomes sticky and remains in place until the feature is over. You could get your hands on a maximum payout of 5000x your stake here.

Our Verdict

Aurora Beast Hunter slot is a bold move from Microgaming as it may end up having only niche appeal, but the fun factor of this slot is undeniable. Playing this game is like being immersed in a 90s Saturday morning cartoon marathon. The design team at Just For The Win went to extraordinary effort to design this experience that includes seamless animated transitions, intensely illustrated characters, and objects and an event-triggered soundtrack that offers a great variety throughout the game.  

The various random wilds that can appear during the base game create frenzied energy that carries through to free spins where your choice of sub-feature will affect the outcome of your game and ultimately your bankroll. Microgaming’s thoughtful design means that you will want to come back and play this slot again and again until you’ve uncovered Aurora’s full story.  The genre may put some people off as the audio-visual treatment of this title is very much over-the-top, but if you are excited at the prospect of this title, you will not be disappointed.
