Akiva: Claws of Power Features
The second half of 2022 has been a fantastic time for feature-rich additions to the slots world. And this title is up there with the best of them.
A couple of the features can happen by chance during the base game, but the big wins will require the help of free spins or the Link & Win system. With its medium volatility and regular feature triggers, there is never a dull moment with Akiva: Claws of Power.
Just when you thought that it was safe to take your eyes off the reels, a sandstorm kicks up and starts messing around with the symbols.
You will see some of them suddenly change and become completely different symbols. It is guaranteed that they will connect and create a win somewhere on the board.
Claws of Power
Claws of Power is very similar to the sandstorm feature in that you are guaranteed to land yourself a prize when it triggers.
A huge animated claw makes its way angrily through the reels and swipes across the screen. The symbols will then shuffle into a winning combo and you get to reap the rewards.
Link & Win
If you have ever played a Link and Win title before then you will know just how valuable this feature can potentially be. There is a special symbol in each Link and Win game. In this title, it is the gold coins with a lion's footprint on them.
These coins bear a prize value that could be cash or the mini or mega jackpot. The cash values are between 1x and 100x your bet total. The mini jackpot is worth 30x your bet and the mega jackpot coin gets 100x your bet total.
You'll need at least 6 coins to show up in any 1 spin to trigger the feature. When this happens, you get 3 respins and all of the coins are held on the screen. When more coins turn up, they will stick to the reels as well and add yet more prizes to the mix.
The re-spins will also be reset to 3 once again. At the end of the feature, the prizes are added up and paid out. If all 15 places are filled with coins, then the grand jackpot is released which stands at 1,000x your total bet.
It is strange to have a game where the free spins feature almost becomes a kind of secondary bonus. But given that the Link and Win feature can be so valuable, that's exactly what has happened here.
You'll need 3 scatter symbols to land and trigger this bonus with 5 free spins. The 3 central reels merge to create just 1 large reel bearing 1 symbol.
This large symbol counts as 9 symbols. But if the large symbol is a scatter, then it counts as just 1. Re-triggering these spins is also possible during the bonus round.
