Twilight Princess Slot Review
Twilight Princess is a Pragmatic Play release that, along with another company's slot named Starlight Princess, has a recognizable anime styling performance. If you are a fan of Sailor Moon, Twilight Princess will please your eyes, refreshing old feelings touched with this popular anime series.
As for overall performance, there is nothing to complain about since the graphics are more than that sharp and detailed, the animations are numerous and entertaining, and musician accompaniment, including sound effects, truly suits this slot anime essence.
The playfield here is the 5x5 square grid with no pay lines because of the rare Cluster Pays mechanics utilized by this slot. There is Extreme volatility here that increases the pauses between successive wins but expectedly elevates your chances of an oversized cash prize.

Twilight Princess Bonus Features
There are a few of them present in this slot, including special symbols and the FS round, so let us thoroughly guide you through all of their things.
There are no pay lines, as in most gambling games, since payments are made with a certain amount of one of the paying symbols in sight on the playfield. But unlike the similar Scatter Pays mechanics, this one needs every one of those pics to connect in any way — vertically or horizontally, making special paying blocks. To reward a payout, those have to consist of a minimum of 5 identical pictures.
It’s a no-paid special symbol that participates in the base and bonus games, but the only difference is that within the latter, it becomes the sticky one. During both, Wild lands anywhere and has a mandatory random multiplier (x2, x3, x5, x10), which lets it increase the win amount of those winning sequences it is partaking in. In case there is more than just one Wild in a winning combination, their multipliers summarize before applying. Also, each Wild may take a simultaneous part in different prize sequences. The last thing you should be aware of is that, as usual, it substitutes any paying pics, increasing your chances of getting a winning cluster combination.
It is the only payable special symbol here, falling anywhere in a maximum quantity of up to 5, granting a reward of x100 referencing the total bet. But its primary goal is in the bonus game starting.
Free Spins Round
A minimum of 3 Scatters immediately activate the Bonus game, with a starting FS quantity of 10. During them, Scatters also keep landing on the reels but altogether with some other paying picture, taking an already occupied tile. Moreover, within the bonus game, Scatters can re-trigger extra free spins, but this time, due to just a minimum of 2 simultaneously fallen pictures of a corresponding special symbol.
Any Wild landed on the reels within the FS round, locking and remaining in place until the bonus game ends. Moreover, during the randomly chosen spin, the princess can present you extra sticky Wild multipliers, although that may not happen. All of those highly advance your odds of prize cluster formation during the bonus game.
Buy Free Spins
There is a Buy Bonus feature, costing x100 per chosen bet and guaranteeing the FS round triggering during the next automatically activated spin.
Our Experience Playing Twilight Princess
There was also a little personal experiment, which had the aim of exploring how entertaining and lucrative this slot is. It took us 300 spins, for which we allocated €200 (€1 per spin).
During the first spin, we got the win of €2.5. Overall, the quantity of winnings was 21 (0.25 - €22.75). And just 5 of them were under our stake of €1. Moreover, we got two big wins of €22.75 & €16. The most elongated period without wins took 7 spins, which doesn't seem too lengthy. But what is most impressive is the landed Wilds amount, which totaled a whole 55. The game balance after the 100th spin was over amounted to €180.75.
During the next hundred spins, there were 20 other wins (€0.25 - €9.25), 8 of which were less than €1. This time, the lengthiest non-wins period was during as many as 13 spins. The final balance upon the 200th spin was out totaled €125.5.
Within the third hundred spins, we caught 18 winning spins, 7 of which presented us lower than the chosen stake cash prize. This time, we had the lengthiest non-wins period of 24 spins, and the highest single win amounted to €36.5. The final result was €95.
The main conclusion of the video slot test drive is the frequent Wild appearance and issues with the FS game triggering. But, of course, the absence of the bonus game activating during all the 300 spins can be just a fluke since it's a gambling game, which is typically random. Here are all the statistics:
Twilight Princess Verdict
This slot has nothing like wow to offer, especially for those experienced gamblers, except for an entertaining, although quite simple, gameplay process, high chances of big wins, and a bright-coloring anime-styled design. So, if you appreciate Asian cartoon pop culture, you should check it out.
Among those pros, we want to admit, are Wilds alongside multipliers up to x10 and sticky Wilds & overlaying of the Scatters on the paying symbols during the Bonus FS game. For instance, the latter aspect somewhat decreases the number of main symbols, slightly elevating your chances of forming winning sequences. Also, here is a not-bad pay table with a record low amount of payouts that are less than the stake (just 2), which makes you hope for better cash prizes, compared to low & medium variance slots with many wins not repaying the stake.
There are not so many serious flaws in this slot besides its varying RTP value and clear orientation on the Asian anime-culture fan audience. Still, even if you have nothing to do with anime but are not that against pretty girls on the front, this one arguably can diversify your usual gambling diversions.
