The story of Noah’s Ark is one of the most famous tales in the bible. God was said to have been angry with the human race, so decided to create a huge flood to engulf the entire planet. Only Noah and his family would be saved by building an ark, in which he would gather two of every type of animal. This IGT designed pokie takes a fun look at the story of Noah’s Ark, with cartoon style animals looking out of the wooden windows of the arc, sometimes in pairs!
Noah’s Ark is an original game offering longer and more profitable pay tables amongst the following features:
In the base game there are five standard symbols that can be ‘doubled up’. These are the lion, the hippo, the elephant, the camel and the turtle. Sometimes you’ll see just one image of the animal within a symbol, but on other occasions they will double up and show a pair of animals within the symbol. Land one of these double symbols and they will count as two for pay-out purposes. Line up five doubled up symbols in a row and you’ll win the maximum 10 in a row pay out.
Look out for the dove symbol which appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. Like the animals, this can double up too, making for a maximum of six doves across the 3 reels. Land 4 doves in total and you’ll win an instant prize of 2x your total bet. However, 5 or 6 doves will activate the free spins feature, awarding you 5 or 10 free spins respectively.
During the free spins feature a whole new set of reels appear featuring a new range of animals (well Noah did take every specie on earth into the ark!). The new animals are a giraffe, a ram, a zebra, an ostrich and a crocodile. These animals can appear in twos again, just like in the base game, offering those high paying 10 in a row wins.
The highest paying symbol in the game is the ark itself. Land five in a row and you’ll win an impressive 10,000 coins, four times larger than any other pay out in the game. The ark acts as the wild too, but this wild is more useful than most. Any time it substitutes for one of the five high paying animals (both in the base game and the feature) it will represent two symbols. The only symbol it won’t substitute for is the bonus symbol.
Outside of the wild, the lion is the highest paying symbol, worth 2,500 coins for the maximum 10. All of the other animals pay 1,000 coins for the full house. Completing the low end of the pay table are the playing cards J, Q, K and A.
IGT has designed a fun game in Noah’s Ark. The background to the game shows the arc ready to embark on a rocky beach, while the reels themselves sit on slats of wood. Each of the symbols peers out of a metal framed window from the ark, the cartoon style animals all looking happy with their lot (they might be cooped up in a boat, but it is far better than the alternative!). Land a win and you’ll see entertaining animations and hear entertaining exclamations, while the ‘wild’ ark will aim to stay afloat in the stormy seas.
Noah’s Ark is an entertaining and original game. You’ll be enamoured with the game right from the start due to the cartoon animals that fill the reels. You’ll like them even more when they double up and offer those highest paying wins. Enter the feature to encounter a whole new set of creatures, each offering those big paying wins, this time for free. If you want to keep your head above water, this endearing online pokie is a must play.
