Holy Diver is a 6-reel MegaWays slot with up to 586k paylines to play on throughout. Developed by Big Time Gaming, it takes inspiration from the heavy metal song ‘Holy Diver’ and has a medieval setting. The high value symbols are gems of different colours, and the lower-value icons are the standard card values. Holy Diver slot has two huge and unique bonus features which multiple mini-features encompassed within them.
Embark on an adventure through the Middle Ages with the knight who follows the path beneath the reels. You can work together to make the most of this mission, as you play on the reels and he unlocks treasure chests to reveal prizes or special features.
This is one heck of a showstopper and can look a little overwhelming at first. Fear not, the knight can do his own thing while you do yours, and you just need to primarily focus on spinning the reels. The purple gems are the most valuable in the Holy Diver slot, followed by the red, blue and then green. They can appear in stacks on the reels, not just singular icons. The lower-value card symbols are still shiny with gems in but won’t pay out as much as the full gems.
Maybe the most staggering element of this game is the MegaWays payline feature. You have 6 reels, each with 7 symbols on them. With each level, you move up in the game, the ways to win also increase. Level one has over 117,000 ways to win, and the highest, level three, has over 586,000 ways to win.
This feature gives you the chance to ramp up your game, allowing more chances to win. You can’t argue with that!
The knight will work his way along the path beneath the reels, either with a leisurely stroll or a run. Whenever he comes up to a treasure chest, he gives it a kick and one of four modifiers will be revealed. This usually happens every one to five spins, depending on how fast he fancies going. Let’s take a look at the different modifiers up for grabs:
- Standard Symbol Bonus
A randomly chosen low-value symbol will pop up out of the chest. All corresponding low-value symbols on the reels will then be transformed into Wilds.
Having more Wilds on the reels could help you to make some all-important payline wins, or MegaWays as is their proper name!
- Sword Bonus
If a sword rises up from the treasure chest, then the knight could reveal up to three fully stacked Wild reels on your game. Imagine what that would do for your wins!
Even better is the multiplier which comes with this bonus, it can be up to 7 times!
- Fireball Bonus
The fireball shoots four wild symbols onto the reels, and you have to hope that they land in some useful spots to help you make the most of them!
- Gem Symbol Bonus
You may reveal one or more gems which are then converted into Wilds. What's more, is that these Wilds can come with multipliers of 2x or 3x as you move through the levels.
Shield of Fortune
Following on from the gems, the MegaWays and the levels you can move through, this is how you do it.
The Holy Diver slot doesn't have a Scatter symbol, and instead, you need to collect the gems revealed in the chests through the Gem Symbol Bonus.
Four gems, one of each colour, is what it takes to trigger the bonus. There is a shield to the left-hand side of the reels with a square for a gem of each colour. Once the shield is filled, you have a choice.
You can choose between taking the ten free spins or moving up to level two.
If you progress to level two, you will return to the base game, but you will be playing with a x2 wild multiplier.
It is the same for moving between levels two and three, but in level three you would get a x3 multiplier.
If you choose to take the free spins, you will be awarded ten of them.
Keep an eye out for gems which appear on reels two to five because they can transform into Wilds. These Wilds will have an associated multiplier depending on which level you are playing in.
During the free spins, instead of opening the chests, the Knight will battle some mystical figures who stand in his way on the path.
These battles can either provide you with some shiny gems or leave you empty-handed.
Of the first four gems you reveal in this feature, you will get one extra free spin. If you land a fifth gem, you will re-trigger the feature with eight free spins!
The cherry on the cake here is that with every re-trigger, the winning MegaWays increase, up to the maximum of over 586,000!
