Nostradamus

nostradamus slot logoPrepare for a trip to sixteenth century France and the mysterious world of prophecy and mysticism with Nostradamus Prophecy by Ash Gaming, a subsidiary of Playtech.

The game’s reel symbols feature the sort of items that you would expect to see in the study of a mystic or alchemist back in those distant times. We have items like globes, books, telescopes, parchment, and so forth. Nostradamus is best know for a series of 1000 short poems, quatrains, which he wrote claiming they were visions of the future. His detractors claim that those poems are so vague that anything could be claimed to be predicted by them.

His believers affirm that Nostradamus predicted events like the World Wars, the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001, or even the Obama administration. Lucky for you, Nostradamus’ predictions in this game are straight forward, and very much real, and they are all good omens for you and your wallet.

The artwork in this game is simply superb, and the music it employs is amazing. This is truly one of the best looking games I have ever played.

Developer

Ash gaming was purchased by Playtech five years ago, in 2011, and it continues to operate as a subisidiaary branch, using the name “Ash Gaming, a Playtech company”. Ash Gaming was originally founded in 2000, and they continue to release amazing titles such as The Life of Brian and Sinbad’s Golden Voyage. Being part of the Playtech family has certainly been a positive thing for Ash Gaming.

How To Play It

Nostradamus may look very old-timey, but it does not use the same traditional pay line system that has been the mainstay of the video slot world for so long. Instead, Nostradamus employs the ways to win system, where combinations are made by getting symbols on adjacent reels. Nostradamus features 243 ways to win, and it also has a very interesting carry over from the pay line system. It has a “way bet”, just like the line bet of the pay line system.

The game’s control scheme is dead simple, just what you might expect from any other slot machine. Along the bottom of the screen, below the reels, we have a pay table button, a display for your current wins, setting s to adjust way bet and total bet, and the auto play and play buttons.

Special features

As expected, this game about Nostradamus has incorporated he mystic’s famous predictions to its game play. During regular play, Nostradamus may appear at random and peek into your future. His predictions are not disasters or calamities, as in the real life quatrains, but rather a cash reward for you in the very near future, meaning, he gives out instant cash rewards at random.

The game’s free spin mode features three very interesting special wild symbols. These appear only on the center position of reel 3, and they each have their own special bonus features.

Lightning shows the Eiffel Tower, and it changes symbols at random into wild symbols around the reels. Earthquake, showing the sphynx and the pyramids at Giza, shakes up the reels and gives you new symbols. Tsunami, showing a soon to be drowned Lady Liberty, turns one reel into a stack of three wild symbols.

The last feature of note is the Planets Bonus. This is a roulette type mini-game triggered by landing Planets Bonus symbols, where you watch the planets f our solar system (sorry, no Pluto) orbit the sun. Each planet has a multiplier, and if it lines up along the win line, it will give it to you to multiply your bet. The more planets line up, the more multipliers you get.

Maximum Payouts

This game’s jackpot is 500x your total bet.

Summary

A gorgeous game with amazing features and an original theme. Definitely worth trying, whether you’re a skeptic or not.
