Nirvana is a fantasy themed video slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. It has five reels, 20 paylines and can be played from 40p to £100 per spin.
The fantasy theme is evident throughout the game. The reels are encased in an ornate golden frame with three flower buds along the bottom. The soundtrack is hypnotic and symbols include magical creatures as well as gems in the shape of the four playing card suits. The lotus flower acts as the free spins bonus symbol and the wild symbol is a shiny green emerald with gold around it.
Landing two or more of the pink lotus flower symbols activates the free spins. If you get two of the icons then you’ll be treated to one free spin while three or more symbols awards 10 free spins. If the round is triggered with four or five flower symbols then you’ll also receive a cash payout of 1,000 or 5,000 coins.
When you activate the free spins round one of the flower buds at the bottom of the screen will blossom open to reveal one of three goddesses. Each brings different bonuses to the round. The first adds extra wilds to the reels, the second links the middle three reels together and the third can nudge the reels by one position to secure the best chance of a win. If you trigger one free spin then one of the buds will automatically open at random. However, if you use three or more flower symbols to activate the round you’ll get to choose which feature you want to benefit from.
With superb graphics and a compelling soundtrack, Nirvana is aesthetically pleasing. The choice of bonus features in the free spins round gives players some control over the action but be aware that the 10 free spins do not activate all that often.
