Join Female Super Heroes in this Action-Packed Freefall Pokie
Natural Powers is a comic book style pokie based around the adventures of four female super heroes. These leading ladies are based on the elements, with wind, fire, earth and ice all bringing their own range of abilities to the reels. These characters can appear randomly at any time during the base game, and when all four appear together you could be in for a very welcome boost. Each also gives you an option in the main feature, so there’s little doubt who rules the roost in this IGT designed pokie. If you like gambling machines where the features come thick and fast, check out IGT’s Natural Powers.
Main features that make this game entertaining:
Natural Powers utilises the freefall winning system. This system means that symbols will fall onto the reels as opposed to the usual spinning motion. Any time you win, after being paid out, the winning symbols will disappear with the symbols from above dropping into their place (while new symbols will appear at the top of the reels). The reels will now be re-evaluated, with any new wins being paid out, and these symbols once again disappearing. The process will continue on and on, with the potential for a long streak of wins.
At any time during the base game you might be lucky enough to land one of the five following super hero based ‘mystery features’:
Wind – Wind will blow all of the fire and ice away from the reels.
Fire – Fire will burn all of the wind and earth symbols from the reels.
Earth – Earth will remove a random pattern of symbols from the reels.
Ice – Ice will freeze away a random pattern of symbols.
Each of the above mystery features effectively as a freefall, with the disappearing symbols leading to a win or a series of wins.
The final mystery feature sees the ‘super team’ of heroes come together when there are two bonus symbols on the reels, causing a third to appear. Find out why this is important below!
Look out for the bonus symbol which features all four super heroes and appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. Land the bonus symbol on each of these reels (with or without the help of the final mystery feature) and you’ll enter the free spins bonus feature, where you’ll have the following choices:
5 free spins with 8x-10x multipliers.
8 free spins with 4x-10x multipliers.
12 free spins with 3x-5x multipliers.
15 free spins with 2x-4x multipliers.
The Base Game with a 4,000 Coin Top Prize
Natural Powers plays out on a 5×4 reel set-up with a total of 40 win-lines. The cost of a spin is 60 credits, where you’ll play 40 credits for the win-lines and another 20 credits for the additional features. The highest paying symbol shows the title / logo of the pokie and pays an impressive 4,000 coins for the maximum five in a row. The wind and fire heroes pay 800 coins, while the earth and ice heroes each pay 300 coins. Round iconic symbols that contain a mixture of two powers each pay 100 coins.
A ‘wild!’ exclamation will substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the bonus scatter.
IGT have designed Natural Powers in the style of a Marvel or a DC comic book. Each of the symbols is housed within a frame in the shape of their power – a spiky frame for ice and a flaming frame for fire for example. The reels are transparent showing the sky scraper setting of the pokie – no super hero themed slot is complete without a sprawling metropolis setting. A high energy and slightly futuristic soundtrack plays while you spin.
Natural Powers is a fast paced, all-action pokie from IGT. The freefall system gives the base game an immediate boost, with a number of wins possible with every spin, while those mystery features only enhance your winning chances. The free spins features will have you thinking about strategy – do you go all out for the big win or play it safe?
