New Niagara Falls Slot Comes as First YGS Masters Release ( Click to Enlarge )

Yggdrasil Gaming’s YGS Masters concept has released their first exclusive online slot. This comes in the form of the Niagara Falls online slot, a game that combines 1930s action with traditional fruit machine imagery. This title is produced by Northern Lights but will be available exclusively through Yggdrasil’s platform only.

Take a Visit to the Niagara Falls Slot

The newest addition to the lineup from Yggdrasil Gaming is a part of their exclusive YGS Masters lineup, and it’s actually the first title that’s been produced for this program. It comes in the form of Niagara Falls, a game that has a name that might be slightly misleading based on the fact that the only thing falling down will be coins that help you win big.

The Niagara Falls slot combines modern video slot layouts and concepts with the theme and visuals of the older, three-reel games to create a throwback style title that will remind players of the “quarter falls” games that you’ll sometimes see in arcades and other locations.

The bottom line is that there’s a lot going on in this game and a lot to look forward to, and we’re going to show you everything that you need to know about what this game offers.

The Format and Coin Drop Bonus

There are 20 paylines that extend from left to right only for this game, and that’s a pretty standard video slot format that has been used to build some of the most popular games of all time. By any measure, it’s a very solid foundation for a great release.

On any given spin, players have a chance to randomly activate the Coin Drop bonus, which is reflective of the type of game that this title is a throwback to. You trigger this feature by getting a gold coin on the fifth reel at the end of the spin, and it’ll fall down off of the reels to leave a trail that lands in a bonus slot at the bottom of the game board. If it lands on a spot that is lit up for a bonus feature, then you’ll activate that particular bonus.

Available Bonus Features in the Niagara Falls Video Slot

The available bonuses are as follows:

  • Win Multiplier
  • Wild
  • Stacked Spin
  • Shake
  • Free Spins

For the “wild” option, you’ll see all of the coin trail symbols replaced with wilds, which then allows for wins to be recalculated for a chance to get even more payouts than usual. With the “free spins” option, you’ll get five free spins.

The “shake” feature adds one shake bonus to the counter, and the “stacked spin” gives you a re-spin with stacked symbols for better chances for multi-line payouts. Finally, with the multiplier bonus, you can get your wins on that given spin multiplied by a factor of between 2x and 5x.

Details on the Free Spins Mode

Another way to get free spins is to land the bonus barrel symbol on the first, third and fifth reels. When you do this, you’ll see that there are only wild bonus options on the bonus slots at the bottom of the screen. This ties to the five respective reels and gives you a chance for each of those reels to turn completely wild during the bonus round. You cannot re-trigger the free spins, and the coin fall and cash fall bonus features are not able to be activated during this bonus round either.

Yggdrasil Gaming With a Super-solid Release

We’ve seen some pretty great releases by a lot of different software providers in 2019, but Yggdrasil in conjunction with Northern Lights Gaming has really turned things up a notch with their Niagara Falls online slot. It’s the type of game that’s so feature-rich that you’d think it would have a particularly high volatility, but the pay table is balanced enough to give you a pretty reasonable hit-rate overall.
