Conan The Barbarian is an online slot machine powered by Cryptologic software. The layout is 5-reels and 9-paylines, with Crazy Jackpots attached to every payline. The game is based off of the character that Arnold Schwarzenegger brought to life on the big screen over 30 years ago.
The original Conan was developed in the 1930’s by famous fiction writer Robert E. Howard, so the storyline has been a part of history for many, many years. The theme is carried out on the reels in more ways than one.
The entire design of the slot is attractive, including the details put in the symbols. The icons in Conan the Barbarian include; Wizard, Witch, Monster, Helmet and of course, standard playing card values. The highest paying jackpot, excluding the progressives attached to the paylines is 750 coins. This amount is rather small in comparison to the other slot games offered by the software but the jackpot potential and the feature payout potential make up for it.
The coin denominations are between 0.01 and 5, making the maximum bet allowed $45. No matter your bet size, the payout potential can be fantastic. With wilds, multipliers and bonus features, the payout potential is impressive.
The wild in Conan The Barbarian is Conan himself. He appears on the reels to act as a substitute for all other symbols. If five of this icon land on an enabled payline, you will win the corresponding Crazy Jackpot. Also, since it’s a substitute it substantially increases the chance of having other winning payline combinations as well as the jackpot. The only symbol it doesn’t substitute for is the Conan Logo scatter.
The scatter appears on all reels and doesn’t need to land on a payline to award payouts. The wins determined by the paytable are multiplied by your total stake and paid accordingly. The ultimate scatter win is 100x the triggering bet, which could be a nice bankroll boost. Only two or more symbols are needed to activate the scatter wins and three or more scatters will trigger the Cave of Skulls Bonus feature.
Once the Cave of Skulls is activated, you will be taken to a separate screen where you will pick from the skulls to reveal multipliers and bonus prizes. You can continue to pick from the skulls until a “trap” is selected, at which point it ends the feature and returns you to normal game mode.
The jackpots are progressive and climb until won. Easily referenced on the screen, the amounts of the jackpot vary between paylines. The more you play, the better your shot of landing five Conan symbols for an impressive prize.
