Shadow Raiders MultiMax Features

It’s hard to come up with brand-new feature ideas for slots these days. So instead of scratching their heads for years, Yggdrasil has chosen to adapt some popular features/modifiers and put their own special twist on them. And we have to say, they are actually pretty good!

Dropdown Feature

Dropdown is the name given to cascading reels by this game producer. You know the drill and as winning symbols land, they disappear with other ones falling into place. So what's the twist? The difference with this version is that one of the symbols will be replaced with a wild, and this can substitute for all others except the scatter symbols to help create another win.


MultiMax™ is the addition of a multiplier at the top of each reel. You won't see it happen until a win occurs and the wild symbol turns up. As it does, it moves the standard x1 multiplier up to x2 and this continues throughout the chain of Dropdown wins.

Booty Bomb

After a wild has landed, there is yet more action to look forward to. In one of the empty spaces, after the winning symbols have disappeared, a Booty Bomb may arrive. This will reveal several symbols of the same type or a cash prize instead. Cash prizes will also benefit from any multipliers that have been added during the previous feature.

Raiders Free Spins

The free spins are a fairly standard affair except that they benefit from the MultiMax™ multipliers staying in place regardless of a continuous winning sequence. They will sit there above the reel and jump in to multiply any prizes as they occur.

You may have the option of gambling the number of free spins before you begin the feature. Everybody begins with 8 free spins and you can risk them all for the chance to get an extra 3. You can also do it again if you arrive at 11 spins giving you the opportunity to walk away with 14 from the second gamble.

In some jurisdictions outside the UK, there will also be an option to boost your chances of landing bonus symbols by paying an extra 50% on top of each bet and also buying straight into the bonus round at a price of x100 for a standard 8 free spins. 350x will get you the super free spins where you receive the maximum 14 free games.

Shadow Raiders MultiMax Review

Pirate-themed slots are super-popular at the moment and various different producers are putting their spin on the genre. We don't expect to have our socks blown off with new games in this slot niche as we are pretty sure we have seen just about everything by now. 

However, we have to hand it to Yggdrasil for going a little rogue and spicing things up a bit.


The design team has done a great job of keeping the whole scene feeling like part of the game with various animated touches rather than a plain, static backdrop. There are flags flying, galleons swaying and stars twinkling in the night sky. The soundtrack is an epic classical score with crashing waves overlaid and this carries on throughout until you trigger the bonus game. At this point, some strange electric guitars ramp things up a bit which seems like an odd choice but it somehow works. It also looks and sounds great on mobile devices as well.

Game Play

There is plenty going on throughout the game to keep you occupied and you won't be sitting there waiting desperately for the bonus round to arrive. The cascading reels, multipliers and wilds help break the base game up and keep things feeling fresh—even though everyone in the game appears to be well past their sell-by date.

Win Potential

There is a huge 15,000x max payout up for grabs but it does come at the cost of extremely high volatility. The hit rate is fairly low although you will see occasional wins turning up, but don't expect them to have a huge effect on your balance until the larger ones turn up every so often. The biggest payouts will definitely be found in the bonus round and if you are interested in statistics, this game has an RTP of 96.10%.

Our Verdict

When you see a lot of games in the same genre enough times, you don't always tend to have extremely high hopes, it has to be said. But Yggdrasil has done themselves proud by adding some interesting twists and some large payout potential to this game. It is certainly worth a spin.
