As with previous games in the series, Pentagram 5000 is set in a world steeped in tantalising beauty. An ancient, ruined temple acts as the game’s backdrop, highlighted by a beautiful but brooding sky that paints the world appealing shades of blue. What the temple might hold, and where it comes from is unknown. What is known is that players bold enough to tap into the temple’s magic may just walk away with pockets loaded with treasure.
Set on a 3x5 grid, Pentagram 5000 leans heavily into the power of the titular star symbol. A pentagram acts as both the slot’s Scatter and the Wild, albeit in interestingly different ways. Pent, Star and Gram symbols must all appear on the reels in a single spin, which will grant 10 Free Spins. During a Free Spins sequence, a multiplier comes into play, growing automatically over the course of the 10 spins. The multiplier starts at 1x, increases to 2x for the second spin, and so on.
But adding the Pentagram symbol to the mix shakes things up. Appearing only on the centre reel, if matching in conjunction with Pent, Star and Gram, Free Spins are doubled to 20, which is the sort of bonus that will get slots players more than a little excited. The payout potential is enormous, with the possibility of a maximum of 5,000x the original wager being awarded.
Additionally, an important factor to take into account is that Pentagram 5000 is one of few slots that has an RTP more of than 97%, making an already interesting game even more intriguing.
Games commercial director at Realistic Games, Robert Lee, took the time to comment on the new release. He pointed out that, as far as his studio is concerned, Pentagram 5000 is a landmark creation. He explained that a slot featuring an RTP of more than 97% was previously unheard of within the company’s design offices but had now finally come to pass and be released.
The interesting new slot is live now, and players looking for big wins will certainly already be giving the reels a few spins.
