Wazdan, an award-winning slots developer and aggregator based in Valletta, Malta, has released 16 Coins™, the latest installment in the much-loved 9 Coins™ slot series, which is a coin-themed slot packed with tons of different features and delicious Jackpots.
In addition, the provider’s previous similar hits include 12 Coins™ and 9 Coins™: Grand Platinum Edition.
The layout of this slot is quite simple with the action taking place on a 4×4 grid and the main focus is on players hitting as many coins as possible. In addition, the game can be played on any device, and the soundtrack completes the atmosphere of the game.
Players can’t win anything in the base game and the main goal is to trigger the Hold the Jackpot™ bonus game, for which they need a combination of 4 matching bonus symbols in the 4 central positions. However, the Cash Infinity Symbol helps with this, as it stays sticky till the end of the next bonus round no matter what position it appears on the grid and is worth 5x and 10x a player’s bet.
As for the symbols, there are no low-value ones, as the game only contains high-value bonus symbols. What’s more, the slot has high volatility, an RTP of 96.18%, and a maximum win of 10,000x a player’s bet.
Hold the Jackpot™ – this is the main feature of the entire game, with it being played on a 16 positions grid. Additionally, players start it with 3 respins and only a variety of bonus symbols and blanks land throughout the feature. Also, during this round, new bonus symbols become sticky next to the symbols used for activation, which further causes the re-spins to reset every time, and the regular cash bonus symbols to land with values between 1x and 5x a player’s bet.
But that’s not all; because there are also 3 Jackpots available here, which can be activated when the Mini, Minor and Major bonus symbols appear on the grid. The symbols are worth 10x, 20x and 50x a player’s bet, individually. The Collector symbol collects the award value from all the cash and Cash Infinity™ symbols present, and the total amount is then increased by a multiplier between x1 and x20. Additionally, the Mystery Symbol can transform into any symbol except the Cash Infinity™ symbol, and the Jackpot Mystery Symbol may turn into one of the Mini, Minor and Major symbols which will then disclose on of the 3 Jackpots.
When players run out of respins, the feature ends. However, if they manage to cover all 16 reels with sticky high-value bonus symbols, they will be awarded with a Grand Jackpot worth 1,000x a player’s initial bet. However, this is the final win of the game, so other wins are forbidden if this occurs.
Chance Level™ mechanism – the default version of this feature is off, but there are 3 settings besides the default version. If players choose to activate these settings, they may need to pay 2x, 4x or 6x of the bet more per spin, which will result in their odds being increased by the same sum in the Hold the Jackpot™ feature. However, the settings also allow players to choose volatility and the speed of the game.
Cash Infinity™ mechanic – Cash Infinity™ symbols are available to players at any time, landing randomly in the base game and staying on the reels until the bonus feature is activated. However, they also stay until the end of the next bonus feature as mentioned above. If the symbols are in the middle row, the players’ chances of activating the Hold the Jackpot™ round are greatly increased.
Commenting on the new release, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, Andrzej Hyla, said: “We take immense pride in the sustained excellence of our 9 Coins™ series, and this forthcoming release is poised to set new benchmarks. With added reels, an enhanced bonus round, and the revival of beloved mechanics reflecting our commitment to engagement, players can anticipate an added layer of excitement. Featuring a plethora of riveting pathways to the grand prize and complemented by cherished features proven to enhance engagement and player satisfaction, we have every reason to believe that 16 Coins™ will strike gold once again!”
