Alpha Eagle Review
If Buffalo Stack 'n' Sync was too hot for your liking, then how about a much-cooler slot with Alpha Eagle? Hacksaw Gaming returns with the Stack 'n' Sync mechanic followed by a delightful bonus round inspired by Time Spinners.
Playing on 5-reels with 20 paylines, Alpha Eagle is set in North America surrounded by the wilderness and snow. Forget about the stress of modern-day life as you'll be taken back to a calm and tranquil time where the only friends will be the wild animals.
Hacksaw Gaming is becoming quite predictive in terms of the gameplay and design - but that's not to say it's a bad thing. When the slot opens up, you'll find a static image of a mountain surrounded by snow and trees.
There are little droplets of snow throughout as well as mist blowing around which is a great attention to detail. All the symbols on the reels are different types of birds with eagles, owls and baby birds which are all adorable.
The music is easily the best bit about this slot and it definitely oozes a tranquil feeling. It's a steady beat with a synth track that feels like something from the 1980s. We are almost certain that you will not get fed up with the mesmerising audio!
Like most other Hacksaw Gaming slots, you cannot fault the gameplay at all. There is always something going on and the developers know exactly what players are wanting in an online slot. From free spins to Stack 'n' Sync, there is something for everyone in this slot.
Those looking for a bonus buy will find it at the bottom right of the screen. However, this is not available in the UK and can purchase the free spins, eagle link or S'n'S feature spins. The rest of the menus can be found at the bottom right of the screen.
Just like Buffalo Stack 'n' Sync, this slot contains a fairly decent win potential with an RTP of 96.26%. This is over the average standard and one that we generally recommend looking out for. As for the other statistics, this slot contains a high volatility level leading to bigger wins but these will be less frequent. If you are a player looking for small and frequent wins, this is not the slot for you.
The biggest win that a player can achieve in this slot is 10,000x stake - which is quite a staple for Hacksaw Gaming. This amount is big enough that it'll make a difference to players, whilst it's not too large that it's unachievable.
Alpha Eagle is definitely a slot that is expected from Hacksaw Gaming - but that's not a bad thing in the slightest. It's quintessentially Hacksaw with a simple game paired with intriguing features to keep players engaged. There are certainly worse stereotypes from slot developers.
There's no denying that some players may get bored with this format and we're hoping to see something new from Hacksaw Gaming in the future, but for now, Alpha Eagle does the job of entertaining and delivering some exciting moments.
