Isis Online Slot Review [Microgaming]

Isis Slot

Isis is not a slot for the faint-hearted! It’s a high variance slot from Microgaming with a lot of small-paying symbols and the occasional monster, along with a potentially lucrative free spins bonus round offering up to 30 spins at 6x multiplier. The slot was developed in 2005 by Microgaming and has become a real “love it or hate it” slot on the forums. Me? I’m a high variance fan, so I love it – well, like it a lot to be more accurate – but it can be a real bastard at times.

The key to doing well on Isis is hitting the free spin bonus for which you need 3 or more “purple birds” (scatter symbols) anywhere in view. You get 20 spins at 6x for 3, 25 spins at 6x for 4 and 30 spins at 6x for 5 scatters (the latter comes with a massive payout in itself too!) and the  free spins can be retriggered.

I find the best way to play this slot is in increments of 50 spins, upping the bet a little each time until I hit the bonus round. then start over. It really is a tight slot imbetween bonuses, unless you get 5 of the high-paying symbols or 4 Queen Isis wilds (which appear on every reel). If you win big, don’t be tempted to double your bet. This slot doesn’t really do winning “streaks” – it tends to string you along, then give you one good payout. That’s the time to get out – trust me on that! Although I would add, that if you get an “average” bonus round (ie: one that pays only 20/25x your bet), it may be worth sticking with it as there’s every chance you’ll hit a better one.

Isis is a real high-roller slot – or maybe for a low roller with a lot of patience! In fact it’s probably the highest variance (risk) slot on the Microgaming platform, along with the “clone” of Isis, the rather dull “Supe It Up” which is the same slot with a car theme (yawn!). If you have a dream and a decent wedge, then give it a try, but if you’ve a low bankroll I’d play a different, lower variance slot.
