Although often translated to “killer whale’ the word this casino game takes for its title in fact means “whale killer”, as this is the main pastime these beasts devote themselves to. They are regarded as apex predators, which means that they have no natural enemies of their own, and are as terrifying as they are beautiful to watch in their single-minded pursuit of prey.
The Orca online video slot is one that has been developed and produced by Novomatic, and it presents five reels and 50 paylines to its players. The icons for the game are placed in four rows across the screen.
Players are able to choose how many lines they wish to activate for Orca online video slot and can further choose to bet between 100 and 200 credits for each. The maximum accepted bet per spin can reach up to 10 000 credits.
Players need to make a chain of identical symbols, with these placing one after the other on an active line in order to receive any type of payout for play. The combination must begin from the first reel on the left-hand side of the screen, and only the biggest win on each line will be paid out.
Players at Gaming Club Casino Canada are able to calculate the payment for a bet by multiplying their wager by the combination index, and are able to transfer it to their account or double the stake in the gamble round if they wish to.
The gamble feature requires that players try to guess the colour of the next card to be drawn, with the correct estimation multiplying the win by two.
All of the symbols for the Orca online video slot are tied to the theme of the sea, and, of course, the “whale killer” appears. It is joined by fishes; seals; penguins and traditional letters and numbers in the form of nine; ten; jack; queen; king and ace playing cards.
Orca online video slot features wilds in the form of a golden mask, as well as scatters, which are the picture of an orca diving into the deep. Wilds can replace missing icons in combinations, transforming them into winning ones, but it will not affect the scatter.
The diving orca scatter symbol can initially only appear on the first; second and third reels and, should this occur immediately ten prize spins at the rate selected by the player will be made by the casino. After this feature has been activated, the new wild symbols will appear on the second, third, fourth or fifth reels, and these can only be retriggered once, with reactivation only awarding five more free spins.
Orca online video slot is presented along with a multi-language interface that has the game appealing to a wider audience than simply those that are able to speak English. There is an autoplay function available, and double-clicking the Start button will activate the Skill Stop feature.
