Sky Rider Slot from Aristocrat

The Sky Rider slot first appeared in 2013 and represented the launch of a new game brand where you would find the new ‘Max Stacks’ feature in the game. The slot is actually two games in one, as you can choose between playing either ‘Silver Treasures’ or ‘Golden Amulet’ themes, although each of the games has the same basic format, the highlight of each being the free spins bonus round, where players have a choice in exactly how it is played.

This impressive looking slot certainly lights up the casino floor, the top of the cabinet featuring the very attractive Sky Rider herself, her look changing dependent upon which of the two games you choose.

How to Win on the Sky Rider Slot

In this review I’ll use the ‘Silver Treasures’ game as an example, although ‘Golden Amulet’ plays in a very similar way. To win in the base game you’ll need to land three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line. The title symbol is the highest paying of all worth 25 coins for the maximum five in a row. Not only does it pay well however, as it is also the wild symbol of the slot, substituting for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter.

The Sky Rider herself, with jet black hair and an alluring pose, is the highest paying standard symbol, worth 50 coins for a full house of 5 symbols, while she is joined by two dragon like creatures paying 40 and 30 coins. The standard symbols are completed by a golden compass, an ancient book and the playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.


Max Stacks – Sky Rider Slot Features

What really sets this game apart from others is the ‘Max Stacks’ set up.  At the start of each spin, one symbol is randomly chosen and a stack consisting of this symbol will be added to each of the reels, making this the most prominent symbol for that spin. This will lead to occasions when this symbol takes up a large proportion of the reels, making for some potentially large wins, even better if the randomly chosen symbol is the wild.

The scatter symbol is an impressive looking one, showing a golden dragon set against the backdrop of bright red flames. This scatter will activate the free spins bonus round when filling three or more entire reels completely.

You’ll now be taken to a screen where you’ll choose exactly how you play the free spins round. You’ll now pick one of the top four symbols at the game to be the stacked one during these free spins. The higher value these symbols are, the fewer spins you’ll have. For example, if you chose the wild symbol as the stacked one, you’d only receive 4 spins, while choosing the lower paying of the two dragon characters will give you 18 free games. This adds a nice level of strategy to the game, where you can go for the short sharp big hit of the wilds, or the almost guaranteed perhaps steadier payout afforded by choosing more spins.

There is one further option available to you during these free spins, as there is the ‘question mark’ option. Here one of the four symbols will be chosen at random, while you’ll also receive a random number of spins. This could be perfect as you might end up with a good number of spins with the wild symbol stacked, or disastrous with just a few spins with the lowest paying symbols stacked.

This feature becomes even better if you land it with four or more scatter filled reels, as the number of spins offered is much higher.

Design and Setup

This slot has a high energy feel, with a soundtrack that really gets you into the game. The visuals at both of the games are excellent, although not quite reaching the same level as those TV or movie themed slots on the casino floor where you’ll find live action video.

Whichever of the two games you play, you’ll find that the slot is something of a standard 5 reel game. The number of win lines is configurable, so you’ll have the option of playing 10, 30, 40, 50 or even 100 lines. The coin denominations start at just 1c, making this live casino slot ideal for all users.


Overall Experience

The Sky Rider slot promises a very different slot experience from the norm. The stacked symbols in the base game offer the opportunity of a big win at any time, while the free spins feature is one of the best you’ll find, the choice of more spins with lower win potential or just a few spins with the chance of big windfalls putting you in control.
