When it comes to magic, NetEnt knows best. From the magical Golden Grimoire slot to Witchcraft Academy, NetEnt knows its stuff. But when it’s colourful, oddly named characters who take on the evil Deep Pockets (yes, that is his name) you want, Arcane Reel Chaos has it all. With five reels, 20 pay-lines and a range of bonus features, this Slot game is certain to have you spinning your way towards generous wins when the heroes are on your side.

Pros & Cons

  • Four base game bonuses.
  • Four levels of Free Spins.
  • Fun battling animations.
  • Biggest potential comes from a base game bonus.
  • Reelcase could have more space on the screen.
  • The bad guy is called Deep Pockets – on the nose.

How to Play

After an intro scene that shows you the main characters and the story, you’ll get to the reels. They’re set against a dilapidated castle, something that we saw in NetEnt’s Golden Grimoire slot and wouldn’t look out of place in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. You can set your bets using the buttons at the bottom left and press the big spin button in the middle to begin. If you want to select autoplay, it’s to the left of the spin button while the button to the right speeds up the process if you want the action thick and fast. As the reels spin and the symbols fall into place, they’ll glisten when they form part of a winning combination and your wins will be shown on screen (before moving to your balance, of course).


You’ll recognise the low value symbols as they are the royals, popular in many slots. 10 to Ace all appear dull coloured, a sharp contrast to the vibrant character symbols.  The characters, Flare, Zero.X, Chrono and Psyop are the high payers while Deep Pockets rewards you with up to 50 times your stake for a win across a payline. Who says being bad doesn’t pay? The Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter to create winning combinations. The Scatter symbol triggers Free Spins.


As well as randomly triggered base game bonuses, there is a multi-level Free Spins feature too, which triggers when you get three Scatters on the first, third and fifth reels.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Psyop’s Stacked Wilds

When Psyop appears on a spin, you get three Stacked Wild Overlays, covering a whole reel.

Zero. X’s Overlay Wilds

When Zero.X appears during the base game, you scoop three to five Wilds added at random.

Flare’s Multiplier

When Flare appears, your Multiplier increases wins by up to x5 your stake.

Chrono’s Re-Spin

After a non-winning spin, Chrono can appear and give you a Respin, continuing until you land a win. On each spin, you earn a Multiplier which progresses up to 10x. This gives you the chance to play for up to 10,000 times your stake!
