When most players think of the game “Snake”, they automatically assume that you’re talking about the old Nokia release. However, Snake is set to mean something totally different in the online casino world. Live 5 Gaming are set to unveil a new slot this week, but it certainly won’t be for the faint-hearted.
Live 5 Gaming’s Snake slot is a highly volatile release and one which is played over 7 reels with 7 rows of symbols. The game also has an RTP (return to player) rate which is somewhat lower than we would ordinarily expect to find in the casino world. What it lacks in generosity, it makes up for in gameplay, though.
Who are 5 Live Gaming?
The developers of this new release are relatively unknown. A few games exist in their portfolio, although it is doubtful that too many players will have heard of them. This small-scale casino software provider is aiming to make a name for themselves with the launch of their Snake slot, though.
About the Snake Slot
The new Snake slot features a cluster pays engine. What this essentially means is that players don’t need to line up symbols on paylines to bag wins. Instead, merely landing symbols in clusters or groups of symbols will be enough to land a prize. Also expected in this game is an avalanche feature which can see winning symbols removed and replaced by new ones. Free spins, multipliers, and expanding icons can also spring up in the release.
Wagers are set to be considerably cheap in the game, stretching from 10p a turn up to no more than £100 a spin. On top of that, there is a more than respectable non-progressive jackpot which can be snapped up, standing at 1,400,000 coins in all. It is worth pointing out once more that the RTP is low and the volatility is high in this game, so players shouldn’t expect wins frequently.
A Limited Release for This New Game
Another downside to the new slot is its availability. There won’t be too many online casinos offering the game. A few of the NetEnt powered casinos which focus on UK and Scandinavian players may provide you with the game as they do carry Live 5 Gaming titles, but the selection of possible places to play Snake is likely to be quite petite at best.
