Known to deliver superior visuals, unique mechanics, and monstrous volatility, speculation surrounding new Push Gaming slots are rife with fans eager to see what’s in store. The wait can be a long one, however. While competitors are churning out games on a monthly basis, it took Push Gaming until May to launch its first title of the year.
In Push Gaming’s latest release, you get to swim with sharks, which is a suiting metaphor for its violent nature. The game itself is actually quite familiar, but the volatility here has been cranked up to around 11, and the potential is higher than in any other Push Gaming slot to date, by far. Utilizing 5 reels, 4 rows and 20 paylines, Razor Shark benefits from Mystery Stacks that can reveal either matching symbols or Golden Shark symbols which, in turn, can reward bet multiplier coins or scatter symbols. The highlight is the Free Games feature where the combination of Mystery Stacks and a win multiplier can result in wins of up to 50,000 times your stake. Using your desktop computer or mobile device as a virtual submarine, you can immerse yourself in this deep sea experience from 10 cents to 100€ per spin.
As always, when it comes to Push Gaming, the production quality is phenomenal. One of the first things you’re likely to notice is the tremendously catchy tune, an intoxicating instrumental that, not only adds tension and excitement to the gameplay, but will make you nod your head to the rhythm. With cartoon style graphics, Razor Shark is set in the ocean where you’ll see corals and colorful fish in the background as well as a couple of Nemo and Dory lookalikes spectating the reels. Symbols include lower-value diving tanks, swim fins, diving masks and underwater cameras. More rewarding are the four sharks that are blue, green, purple and orange in color. The latter is the most lucrative, giving you 25 times your stake for 5 on a full payline. The Great White shark is the wild and substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter. It’s also the most valuable of all symbols, giving you 50 times your stake for 5 of a kind.
Razor Shark Free Slot – Features
Central to the game is the Mystery Stacks feature. On any spin, seaweed symbols in stacks of four can land anywhere on the reels. When they do, the Nudge & Reveal feature comes into play. Similar to the stack Nudging Wilds feature in Tiki Tumble, the Mystery Stack symbols will move down one position on each subsequent spin (which are free of charge) while they also open up to reveal either matching symbols or golden shark symbols.
If the Mystery Stacks feature reveals golden shark symbols, the Razor Reveal feature is activated. Once triggered, each golden shark symbol position will reveal either bet multiplier coins, which have a range of values between 1x and 2500x, or scatter symbols.
Finally, there is the Free Games feature which comes into play when either 3 or more scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels in the main game or during the Razor Reveal feature (each extra scatter rewards one additional spin). Once in, the second and fourth reels are filled with Mystery Stacks that will move down one position on each spin until they fall out of view, in which case the feature ends. Additional Mystery Stacks may also appear to extend the feature. Moreover, there’s also a win multiplier that will increase by 1x on each nudge of the Mystery Stacks. It’s a powerful combination that can result in enormous wins of up to 50,000 times your stake – at least that’s what Push Gaming though. Much to everyone’s surprise, in October 2020 the max win was massively exceeded when a Swedish player landed a 85,000 times the stake win.
