Realtime Gaming (RTG) continues to show their mettle and innovation with every new release. International players who may not have played anything since the legacy days of Achilles, et al may want to take a look at the new releases coming out of the RTG labs. The maths models are becoming more and more complex (without entering the realm of complex stupidity) and the graphics/animations are as good as any. Their most recent release, Eternal Love, is a case in point.
With this slot, RTG steps into the all pays model again (The Naughty List was their first) but rather than augment the game with a random bonus generated from a picking game, they’ve opted for an innovative “Life Force Meter” feature that will leave you chewing your nails or defenestrating your playing device – either way the game has the potential to keep you on the edge of your seat at several junctures.
Three or more scatter symbols trigger 10 free spins, simple enough. Before the spins begin a secret value, ranging from 3x to 100x you bet is hidden behind the “Life Force Meter”. When the spins are complete, the value is revealed. If the amount is more than your free spins win, more spins are awarded one at a time until the bonus win surpasses that value. The bonus meter will rise with each spin from 1x to 10x your bet amount and the Life Force value can rise as high as 1,000x the triggering bet.
Of course, most of the triggers will return a 3x value and most of the increases will be 1x. But there is real potential here for killer wins – as evidenced in the rules by the fact you can only win 2,000x bet on a single paid spin (slightly better than 99% of RTG slots that cap non random jackpot wins to 50,000x line bet, Vulcan being the exception).
The following screenshot provided by a loyal reader shows that the win and meter values can creep slowly and provide a lot of free spins.
While the next one shows that the wait can be worth it.
During the initial 10 free spins you may find yourself hoping for either a null spin (to trigger the second feature) or a big win just to get it over with – you might have cognitive dissonance and wish for both at the same time! If you advance into the second feature you’ll be hoping for the same thing but now the stacked wilds on reels 2 and 4 can be worth up to 3x – and of course, with no standard paylines it doesn’t matter where on reels 1, 3, and 5 the high paying symbols land, you have 243 ways to to win.
