The video slot Anotherland is an example of Belatra putting their own spin on an already popular concept. The basic idea is that you have a magical wonderland full of mystic beasts and other interesting people and things, and now you're thrown into the middle of it while trying to turn the reels to make some big payouts. This game has a good mix of features, and the graphics are adequate, which helps to create a fun, cohesive experience.
Format and Layout
The layout of this game uses five reels and four rows. There are only 20 paylines, which is not the usual for a 5x4 game, but it works here and makes plenty of sense when you see how some of the bonus features work. Players have a lot of different options when it comes to the betting controls, and wagers start as low as $0.20 per spin. Players can choose to adjust the number of paylines to fewer than 20, but we strongly recommend against it as it will lower your RTP in the process.
Wild Orb Symbol
The wild symbol in this game is the golden orb. It stands out visually in a pretty major way, which we think is a good thing because of how there isn't much contrast of this type in a lot of games in today's industry. It sits on a red background, which contrasts particularly well with the green-based theme. Moreover, this symbol shows up on each of the five reels, and it has a very important role in the free spins feature, but it does not get its own winning combinations. Because it can substitute for anything but the scattered bonus symbol, however, it's good for a 5,000x win for five of a kind.
Howling Wolf Scatter and Free Spins
Another important symbol in the Anotherland slot is the wolf howling at the moon. This symbol is scattered, and you can get three or more anywhere on the 5x4 layout of the game to trigger a set of free spins. You always start with 10 free spins no matter how many scatters you get to start the feature. However, three or more scatters during the bonus round will give you anywhere from 10 to 100 extra free turns added on.
During the free spins, you will get extra wilds added to the reels. The way this works is that, at the beginning of the feature, between two and 10 of the spots on the reels will become covered with wild symbols. These symbols will stay in place for the duration of the feature, which means you'll get huge opportunities for multi-line payouts and better odds for the big five-of-a-kind wins as well.
Key Payouts and Winning Combinations
Five of the scatter gives you 10,000x, the largest regular payout in the game. This symbol has so much value between that payout and the free spins feature that it kicks the volatility of this game up quite a bit. From there, you can also score a 5,000x prize for five of the woman facing you on the screen with a green orb. A third large win comes for five of the woman facing to the left with the golden crown on her head, and that gets you a 1,000x payout.
The warrior guard with a spear earns 500x for five, and so does five of the golden crown. You can hit a win of 200x for five of the eagle or five of the sceptre. The white wolf head gets 150x, and so does five of he red A symbol. The blue K, purple Q, yellow J and orange 10 will all get 100x when you line up five on an activated payline. These are some pretty balanced pays on the bottom end and middle of the pay schedule, but there's no denying the bump to the volatility that comes from the higher-end prizes.
Anotherland has a fairly interesting theme, and Belatra has done a good job of thinking outside the box on this one. The key thing to remember about the gameplay, however, is that the volatility is above-average, so you'll want to consider lowering your bet size and/or playing longer sessions to smooth out the swings that come from a game with this type of pay structure.
In terms of gameplay, the free spins bonus feature is obviously where the majority of the value comes from, especially with the large wins you can get from the scatters, but especially from the value you get from the static wilds that can cover up to half of the game screen for at least 10 free turns.
