Locking Archer Slots

Archers don’t often turn up in online slot games, but we have one to find in this game. Locking Archer turns out to be a big clue to one of the features in this slot, so let’s see if we can find out where it might take us.

How many reels and lines can you find in this game?

The creators have gone for the usual set of five reels. Those provide ample space to add 25 lines – and you’ll need to play them all, too.

Is this a pricey game given the fixed paylines?

No, as they’ve provided us with a penny as the cheapest coin. This means you can play each spin from a quarter. Higher bets are available too if you wish.

Watch out for these three special icons in Locking Archer

The first is a hammer, used as a wild symbol and able to substitute for all except the two scatters. Yes, there are two, each playing a different role in the game. Firstly, there is a regular scatter, and this is a thatched hut. You can also find the archer as a scatter symbol, and given the title, it won’t surprise you to learn this is a locking scatter.

How does the locking scatter work?

You can see this in action if you can find two or more archers on any of the first four game reels. If this should occur, the relevant reels lock, with all remaining reels receiving three respins for free. Another archer appearing will lock that reel too, resetting the respins to three again. This carries on until you run out of the respins. You gain anything won during the feature and then the game continues.

The other standard scatter symbol is responsible for triggering the free spins. Three scatters will provide you with 10 of those. There are multipliers present for these, with random numbers available worth up to 5x.
