Free Noah's Ark Slot Machine Game
Produced by IGT and with a reductive approach to design and animation, the Noah's Ark game resembles the pictures that one would find in an adaptation of biblical stories for children. It is a cute, if unremarkable game that features free spins as the bonus round. You can play here for free with no download required and no pop-up ads.
Stories from the Old Testament do not often serve as inspiration to the software developers, which is exactly why a release such as Noah's Arc will catch your attention. All the symbols are very naively done and the highest value icons are the Noah's Arc, Lion, Hippo and a few other animals that accompanied Noah on the epic journey of survival and planet re-population.
Noah's Arc has a conventional 30-payline structure, but this can be adjusted. The player can play on 1, 5, 9,15 or all 30 paylines, with a bet as low as $1 placed on a single active payline or as high as $100 per line, with all 30 lines unlocked, which would make the slot's maximum bet $3000.
Opting for Auto Play feature will initiate the automatic sessions of spins which are activated and set manually. A few more sound and graphics related adjustments are available via the Tool icon on the bottom and the commands located on the right upper corner of the game screen.
The return to player percentage is pretty low - 94.93%, which is considered to be lower than average, especially if you are used to playing slots with 96 or 97 RTP percentage rate. Still, this may not feel so unusual when we look at the total potential payout that can reach 25,000,000 coins.
The Noah's Arc symbol with the rainbow is the Wild, and it can replace all other icons in forming a winning combination. The only two icons that cannot be substituted by Noah's Arc are the White Doves, which can either come as a single icon or a dual symbol with Two Doves. When the Noah's Arc replaces a Lion, Hippo, Elephant, Camel or a Turtle, that symbol will be counted as double (Split Symbol Feature) and all the combinations will get and extra icon in the string, increasing the payout value.
The White Dove icon in combination of 5 unlocks the Raining Free Spins Bonus, played on the same number on lines and at the same betting level as the spin that triggered the bonus mode. If only 4 White Doves appear on the reels, the symbols will act as a multiplier.
While the Free Spins mode is active, the Wild icon can stand for Giraffe, Goat, Zebra, Bird and the Crocodile, splitting them in two and doubling their value.
Unfortunately, the spins cannot be re-activated and the feature will be completed as soon as the session expires. New Free Spins can of course be unlocked during the game, but not while the already activated session is in progress. Free Spins are played on a different set of reels.
The strongest point that this slot has to offer is the Split Symbols Feature that doubles the value of the symbol. Other than that, the game really doesn't have plenty of excitements waiting around the corner, if we do not count waiting for the high value symbols to land on the reels in the proper order. Re-triggerable Fee Spins might have been a bit of a comfort, but sadly, IGT does not provide them in this release.
As simple as it may be, Noah's Arc does have a few sparkling moments, but they are sadly too weak to weigh over the overly simplified gameplay, a very low return to player percentage and an underdeveloped bonus offer.
