Various parts of Asia have served as the setting for more Microgaming slots, mobile and otherwise, than just about anywhere else, to the points that we would consider the two to be almost synonymous. With an aggressive release schedule such as theirs, we can expect them to go back at least every few months and today we are off to China for Six Acrobats – which is perhaps not quite as athletic as it may sound, although there is a bit of a circus influence going on here.
What to Expect
The standard combination of playing card icons and themed symbols is in play here, which will come as no surprise to Microgaming fans, although the acrobats that serve as the themed icons actually look like some of the best that we have encountered. They are joined by the game’s logo which will fill in for any of them as the wild card, and players have a surprisingly small nine win lines over which to put them all together. Compensating for the lack of betting options somewhat is the fact that wins that make use of a wild card will be boosted five times over, which is a very handy multiplier for a base game.
Everything about Six Acrobats has been pretty standard fare so far, meaning that it is no surprise to see that scatters are required in order to trigger free spins. Three, four or five in view will trigger fifteen, twenty and 25 free spins respectively, and all wins are now guaranteed to be multiplied by five compared to the base game. As a further bonus, wild wins during free spins are also subject to the five times multiplier, ensuring that prizes that use a wild card are worth 25 times as much as normal as standard. Every scatter that lands during the round will also add a single free game to the remaining total, giving players frequent opportunities to make even more use out of those multipliers.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Our overriding consideration of Six Acrobats actually has little to do with the gameplay, and has more to do with the fact that both multipliers are five when surely six would make a lot more sense! Nine lines are a bit on the low side for our tastes, but there must be someone out there that still enjoys that kind of gameplay, and the features can definitely see wins piling up aggressively which is sometimes all you need!
