To all thrill seekers, get ready to swim with the sharks on a highly volatile scuba dive on the slot from Push Gaming. Razor Shark will take you deep underwater with Seaweed Mystery Stacks that will trigger the Nudge & Reveal feature, a Razor Reveal feature with instant bet multipliers of up to x2,500 and a Free Spins round with nudging Mystery Stacks and increasing multipliers that can lead to wins of up to 50,000 times your stake.
Razor Shark is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can dive with the sharks on desktop, mobile or tablet from 0.10 to 100 credits per spin. The game is monstrously volatile (10/10, or better make that a 12/10) with an RTP of 96.70%.
A reel set held in a mild patina-covered stone frame is the hunting ground of five sharks, the main protagonists on this slot, each looking more menacing than the other. Outside the game window is a tranquil deepwater scene with corals, sea anemones and fish, even Nemo makes an appearance. It changes to a dramatic night setting in the free spins with the sea anemones and venomous jellyfish on the prowl for their next prey.
At the low end of the paytable, you will find a range of scuba diving props – oxygen tanks, diving flippers, diving masks and underwater cameras – awarding 2.5x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by blue, green, purple and orange sharks. Hit five on a line to win 5x to 25x your bet.
The mighty white shark is the wild symbol and also top payer with 50x your bet for a single five of a kind. A sea mine acts as the scatter while seaweed-covered stacks are the mystery symbol.
Push Gaming has come a long way since their humble beginnings in 2010 and is today a true specialist for highly volatile slot games. Maybe not to everyone’s taste but the world wide web is literally plastered with winning screenshots exceeding 5,000x and 10,000x bet on games such as Jammin’ Jars, Fat Rabbit or Immortal Guild.
Well, the maths geniuses at Push Gaming have not reached their peak yet as Razor Shark impressively shows. It is clearly their most ambitious development to date. What I particularly like about their slots is the fact that although the standard base game will often diminish balances in a merciless fashion, the creators have not hidden all the win potential in the free spins. Accordingly, on Razor Shark, you can hit super mega wins in the base game just as well as in the free spins round.
A major role in hitting big wins falls to the Seaweed Mystery Stacks. Any full stack of four symbols landing on a spin will trigger the Nudge & Reveal feature. The reels will respin at no cost with the Mystery Stacks nudging down by one row on each respin until all have disappeared at the bottom of the game grid. On each respin, the stacks will open to reveal either a matching pay symbol which can potentially help to create winning combinations or golden sharks.
Revealing golden sharks will activate the Razor Reveal feature. All golden shark symbols will unveil either an instant bet multiplier of up to x2,500 or scatters that could lead to the free spins round.
Gear up for the grand finale of your diving tour with the sharks. Landing three or more scatters anywhere on the reels in a spin or via the Razor Reveal feature will trigger the Free Spins round, which does not have a fixed amount of free spins. Instead, the game will place Seaweed Mystery Stacks on reels two and four at the beginning of the feature. They will nudge down by one row on each free spin until they disappear at the bottom. For each nudge, the win multiplier for the round is increased by x1, no limits. Any further Mystery Stacks landing on the reels will extend the feature. It will finally end, once no more Mystery Stacks are in view.
There is one kicker left to mention. The Razor Reveal feature can trigger during the free spins and any awarded bet multipliers will be multiplied by the current value from the free spins round. For example, getting an x2,500 bet multiplier from the Razor Reveal feature with the overall win multiplier standing at x5 will lead to a win of 12,500 times your stake.
No doubt, Razor Shark has equally an insane win potential and volatility. Adding to that spectacular graphics and flawless animations, we have no doubt that players will line up to spin the reels the moment it is released on 3rd September 2019. As always with such games, we urge some caution on the bet size as the sharks might bite you with no remorse.
