Evoplay Entertainment continues to surprise me. They seem to step outside of the mould of standard online slot machines. The company brings new looks and compelling features in their games, and this continues in their Legend of Kaan slot, which transports players to South America and sees you looking to score winnings through similar coloured tiles.
Legend of Kaan looks like a reactor style game that sees you in a pool that's covered with different coloured tiles as well as being surrounded by grey blocks that can be eliminated. I say looks like because the game is in fact more or less a disguised 21 - 33 payline slot machine with paylines of differing lengths. The game pays off when you match four or more identical icons in a straight line only, not in bent lines or clusters that you may expect when first seeing the game. When that happens you see the gem on a snake's head activating the tiles to erase the series of grey blocks that surround the active tiles. You're then treated to a respin, and if another win is triggered it sets off the snake again. Eliminating all of the grey blocking tiles not only increases the number of paylines and makes the playfield bigger, but it can score you a Wild Totem and Free Spins Totem, wherein you get free games.
The game is pretty cool in terms of the look and feel to it. It reminds me a lot of the video game Zuma, where you try to knock out balls in a similar setting. This game has a theoretical return to player percentage of 96.3%, which is typical for a game that we see from a modern slot release.
This game is pretty cool, but having played it for a long period of time, I did start getting bored. It's very difficult to fill the playfield with the coloured tiles, and that means that the bonus features don't fire too often. For me, the cool design and gameplay is hampered a bit by the lack of features. Still, there will people who likely enjoy the game a lot more due to better luck. I myself have put in some real-time with this though, and find there are better Evoplay slots like Raccoon Tales or Rocket Stars, and I suggest you check out those instead.
