Pentagram maybe a three-reel slot but it does have five paylines and some bonus rounds that mean that this classic-looking game may also be enjoyed by those who appreciate more added bells and whistles.
On the surface, this video slot is a stone-cold classic with its assortment of iconic fruit machine icons over three reels. There are cherries, oranges, lemons, watermelons, bells and lucky red 7s – everything a player needs to play a simple retro video slot.
Pentagram has a paranormal theme with its dark, crypt-like appearance and use of satanic symbolism that provides the game with its title. The Pentagram image has been used across several religions and cultures, but it is perhaps most recognisable in the western world as being an occultist symbol, representing evil and the triumph of matter over spirit.
Bonus features of Pentagram
To activate the free spins, players will need to spell the word Pentagram across the reels on a winning payline.
‘Pent’ will be on the first reel, the pentagram on the second reel and then ‘Gram’ on the third reel; the ten free spins will start automatically, and if players are lucky enough to include the pentagram in any winning combination, it will double their total win.
The maximum win during this mini-game is x250 a players stake, and if they are lucky enough to reach that before the free spins are up, the remaining ones will be removed, and players will return to the base game.
Pentagram is a really likeable slot that should appeal to those who prefer the three-reel classics but prefer one or two bonus rounds. These always look and sound good, and they are as close as players can get to being in an actual casino whilst sitting on their sofa.
