06-30-2022 – Bulletproof Games, which is the partner of the well-known provider of online gaming solutions Yggdrasil has announced that it has made yet another contribution to the YG Masters Network with the release of Tempered Steel.
It is the fourth video slot from the studio powered by GATI (Game Adaptation Tool and Interface). Tempered Steel is a 5-reel, 3-row, 20 payline slot that closely follows other slots on the YG Network, such as Tiki Runner and 2 DoubleMax.
Symbols and Paytable
The game is playable across all devices, and it features a high volatility range. Moreover, the RTP stands at 96%, with the maximum win being over €1,000,000, which is astonishing. There is also a free spins round to look forward to, as well as three base game reel bonuses.
There are nine regular symbols in the game which include hearts, diamonds, as well as forged steel clubs. Depending on the symbol combination you land, you can expect a return of somewhere between €0.2 and €5.
Steel weapons are the mid-level paying icons in the game, and they will pay between €1 and €15 for at least three in a row. Finally, a double-headed battle axe is the highest paying icon in Tempered Steel, with the payouts ranging from €2.5 for three in a line, to €40 for five-of-a-kind.
There is a Wild in the game that is represented by a Blacksmith icon. It can replace all other icons except the Scatter. Tools can also randomly heat up and drop into the barrel, so the steam will rise and you will see a random modifier appearing. It will activate one of the three main modifier features in the game:
- Lock and Spin – here, all the reels will lock if you manage to land a stack of Wilds. Moreover, you will get an extra free spin if a reel remains unlocked
- Bonus Frenzy – this feature will get you additional bonus icons to the reels
- Forge Your Weapon – if you manage to smash the rock three times, you will see a weapon being revealed. It will appear as stacks of three icons.
Free spins in the game are triggered when you land at least three bonus icons. Here, five forges will light up when they enter the mode, with at least one forge having the option to be activated on each spin. This is how you will get a Wild added to the reel above.
How many Wilds end up on the reels mainly depends on the number of Scatters. If there are three bonus icons triggering free spins, each forge will get you three Wilds.
Finally, depending on your location, you can choose to utilize the Bonus Buy option for 100x your base stake.
A Unique Game
Michael Bullock, who is the Product Director in Bulletproof Games, said that Tempered Steel provides a very fiery gaming experience with plenty of stacked Wilds, modifiers, and much more.
He adds that huge wins can await punters in the heat of the forge, and he cannot wait to see how putters receive the new release.
The new game is also GATI-powered, and this technology allows partners to use the preconfigured, standardized and regulation-ready development toolkit for much more rapid distribution.
Excitement in Yggdrasil
Stuart McCarthy, the Head of Product and Programs in Yggdrasil says that the company’s partnership with Bulletproof Games allows them to explore other interesting slot themes, and Tempered Steel is another example of it.
McCarthy says that the YG Masters Program continues to set the tone for innovative concepts, so he is looking forward to future releases as well.
