Ancient Eclipse slot REVIEW

Ancient Eclipse ReviewSun worship was part and parcel of many ancient civilizations, and the Mayans were especially obsessed with solar eclipses. This effectively sets the stage for Bang Bang Games’ Ancient Eclipse slot, and it’s also reflected in the game’s main feature. Collect Sun Frames by landing Moon symbols, and experience a larger win (hopefully) whenever all Sun Frames Turn wild.

This is really what it’s all about here, as the bonus round simply gives you one more way to collect Sun Framed reel positions. The tribal soundtrack adds a dramatic sense of urgency as you play, but the base game can drag on for quite a while between bonus rounds. Although the visuals are nicely done, it’s not enough to make this game stand out in an already overcrowded genre.

Ancient Eclipse slot Features

As mentioned above, the name of the game here is to collect Sun Frames. This is true for both the base game and the bonus round. Whenever you land a Moon symbol, the position becomes marked by a golden sticky Sun Frame.

When you land a Moon symbol in an already framed position, all Sun Framed positions will turn wild. This is called the Eclipse feature, and you will also benefit from a multiplier equal to the number of Sun Frames that got triggered by a Moon symbol.

You need to land 3 feathered blue-face warrior scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 to trigger the Sticky Sun bonus round. All Sun Framed positions are carried over from the base game, and you get 10 free spins to start with.

Any wild symbols that land will create a Sun Frame on the same reel position on the next spin, and Sun Frames will remain in place for the duration of the free spins feature. Any Moon symbols that don't trigger the Eclipse feature gives you 1 extra free spin added to your tally. They also add Sun Frames to reel positions of course, just like in the base game. The biggest difference is that Sun Frames don’t reset, and this can lead to multiple wild wins in a row.

The 200 Spins Ancient Eclipse slot Experience

If you’re curious to see how this all works, we landed plenty of Sun Frames in our 200 spins test session. We have put together a brief 2-minute highlights video you can check out below. The bonus round is triggered at 0:19 into the video, and we trigger several Eclipse features leading to a decent win in the end.

Review Summary

With Ancient Eclipse, Bang Bang Games takes a stab at the overpopulated Mayan culture genre. Audiovisually, they have created a decent enough title, with some nice animated symbols and a neat tribal soundtrack. However, the Sun Frame Eclipse feature doesn’t really deliver most of the time, which conditions you to dislike it after a while.

You will mostly grind along with smaller wins in the base game, and it can take a good while before the bonus round is finally triggered. The free spins feature doesn’t stand out all that much from the base game either, which makes it a bit of an anti-climax. Of course, that depends largely on how much you win, and a 4,595x potential is decent enough for a game that feels more volatile than its stated medium variance level.

Pros

Sun Frame collection and wild transformation

Bonus round with sticky Sun Frames

Medium volatility and 4,595x max win potential

Cons

Solid enough stats that don’t really translate into a fun gaming experience
