Developer Iron Dog Studio has launched its latest video slot Eagle Strike exclusively with gambling operator Entain.
The brand-new game is the latest title based on the Hold And Win mechanic and builds upon Iron Dog Studio owner 1XNetwork’s most successful slot in history; Wolf Strike.
Eagle Strike whisks you away to mountainous regions of North America. It uses a 5×3 layout with up to 243 paylines, and it has an RTP of 96.17% with medium to high variance, which means you’re more likely to make larger infrequent wins when playing.
The game requires a bet of between £0.10 and £50 per spin, and its symbols include nuggets, clawed Scatter symbols, eagles, cougars, deer, buffalo, and the usual A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9 symbols.
The eagle symbol substitutes for all symbols, helping to make additional wins. Wild symbols only appear on the middle three reels and during the Free Spins mode, a Wild can expand and trigger a re-spin.
Eagle Strike also utilises a Tumble mechanic. Whenever a winning combination is made, the winning symbols are destroyed and all remaining symbols tumble to replace them. These new symbols can trigger additional Tumbles.
There are Golden Nuggets and Strike Nuggets in the game. Landing six or more Golden or Strike Nuggets triggers the Hold The Win feature, during which you earn three spins and must land Strike Nuggets to win the Mini, Minor or Major Payout.
Meanwhile, matching three, four or five Scatter symbols awards eight, 12 or 20 free spins in the Free Spins mode. During the feature, landing additional Scatter symbols awards more free spins.
James Baxandall, the Key Account Manager for 1X2 Network, said in a statement via EuropeanGaming: “Following on from the great success of Wolf Strike’s exclusivity with Entain, we were more than excited to offer the next instalment in the Strike series to them once again. This game is definitely one to watch.”
Chance Millett-Bangs, Entain’s Slots Manager, added: “Following on from the great success of Wolf Strike, we are extremely excited to also secure the exclusive launch of Eagle Strike.
“With slightly changed mechanics and some maths tweaks to improve the player experience, we expect to see improved engagement from our customers to make this our most successful Iron Dog Studio launch to date!”
Eagle Strike is available exclusively with Entain brands like Ladbrokes and Party Casino until August 17th, after which the game will be made available with 1X2 Network’s partnered casino brands.
