Archer Slot Machine Review

Archer is a 243 ways video slot found at Playtech casinos. It is the first 243 ways game to be released by Playtech which is great to see as this format has become very popular both online and offline. The game has a Medieval theme and several bonus features.

Like all 243 ways games you do not have to bet on individual lines. Instead you need to make a 25 coin bet to activate all ways. You can choose to bet up to 10 coins per way which gives you a 250 coin max bet. Coin sizes start at 0.01 and go up to 0.25 so there are lots of different bet sizes available.

The Gold symbols are wild and appear on the middle three reels only. Obviously this means you cannot get five wilds so the top single way win is made up with the five Archer symbols. The jackpot pays 1,500 coins or 15,000 coins at max bet. While this might seem quite small the Expand and Split feature means this can turn into a huge pay.

Second highest way win is 1,000 coins (10,000 at max bet) for five of the Ladies. This is followed by a 750 and 500 coin win for five of the other men symbols. From there the way wins for five of a kind range from 250 to 100 coins.

The Expand and Split feature is where the game really stands out. Symbols randomly appear with Arrow borders. If a scatter is on the screen at the same time and a win is present the symbol with the arrow border expands to take up the whole reel while splitting with any other symbols on that reels. This means you can get some huge multi-way wins.

For example if you get an Archer symbol on the first and last reels and the three wilds with splits on the middle three reels you win the 1,500 coin jackpot at least nine times for a big 13,500 coin win or 135,000 coin if you are playing max bet. Clearly this will not happen frequently but it gives you an idea of how big the pays can be.

Archer also has a free games feature which is won bet getting three or more of the scattered flaming arrow symbols. You then win seven free games which can be re-triggered an unlimited amount of times.

There is no multiplier for the free games but the Expand and Split feature is triggered every time and arrow bounded symbol appears so the odds of getting a big hit increase during the free games. We would have liked to see a multiplier but the extra expand and split features probably make up for this.

If you want to try to increase your wins on the reels even further you can try your luck with the double up feature. At the end of any winning spin you can choose to gamble your win on either red or black.

Overall, it is great to see Playtech finally release a 243 ways game. They've done a great job with Archer and it really stands out for the Expand and Split feature. If you're a fan of 243 ways games like Indian Dreaming, 5 Dragons or Thunderstruck 2 then it is a game that is well worth checking out.
