Phoenix Reborn

The story of the phoenix! The not-at-all true story of a bird that dies in flames to rise again! It’s supposed to be an inspiration for when your team gets relegated. I’m a Leeds United fan, so I’m susceptible to such legends, but in the end, it just took millions and millions of pounds and a very good manager for us to be reborn.

No burning birds!

However, slots designers love myths and legends. And flames are a strong visual brand, so this gives Play’n GO plenty to play with.

And play with it they do in this wildlife and South American culture-themed game from 2019.

The Phoenix Reborn slot game is striking looking with the sort of quality design you can usually expect from Play n GO. Those phoenixes do look great. And they deliver too, acting as an expanding wild, that’s thrown into every spin in the free spins round.

Should you approach this burning bird though?

The Game

Phoenix Reborn slot

The control panel is typical for a Play’n GO game.

The information button at the left of the panel opens up more menus. Then there is a Balance window before a sliding scale of numbers lets you set your total bet. The spin button is to the right, with the auto spin function at the end of the row. This function is very sophisticated with stops for single wins, loss size, and win size.

  • The game uses tumbling symbols.
  • The pay table pays out at the bottom for sets of four and five only.
  • The lowest paying symbols are card suits: they all pay 0.25 and 0.75 times stake, as does a squared wheel.
  • Toucans pay 0.25 for three, 1.25-times stake for four, and 3.75-times stake for five.
  • The same pays apply to snakes and panthers.
  • Above these are the giant warrior symbols: the male warrior pays 0.05, 0.5, 1.5, and 7.5-times stake for sets of 2 through 5.
  • The woman warrior pays 0.05, 0.5, 2 and 10-times stake.
  • The wild, the phoenix, pays 0.1, 0.75, 3.75, and 25-times stake.
  • A face symbol awards free spins, giving the player 7, 12, or 20. They can then retrigger from the free spins round.
  • Every spin in the free spins round comes with the phoenix wild in play.

The Verdict

Phoenix Rising slot is one of the best looking games we’ve seen for a while. The design is deep and detailed and really dramatic and striking. The soundtrack is great too – and it takes a lot for us to say that.

If you enjoy Aztec or Mayan-style imagery then this is really a game worth checking out.

The phoenix wilds are stunning looking, and they are likely to mean big wins when they turn up.

Free spins are the most comment type of bonus round, and that’s because players love it. Throwing in extra wilds in this round is a great way to promise even bigger wins, and it’s here that you’re likely to see the top prize of 5,000-times your stake – and staking in this game can be very high.

If we have a criticism of this game it is that we find the Play n GO control panel a bit busy, though this is not a particularly bad example. Oh, and it made us think about the pain of being a Leeds United fan. All forgiven though because this is a great game and one worth checking out.
