Until a few years ago, you could play two fantastic South Park online slots by Netent

These slots, South Park and South Park Reel Chaos, are among the best work produced by Netent. Unfortunately, the license of these slots expired, and they had to be recalled. Too bad!

On the other hand, there is some good news to announce to fans.

Although Netent can no longer use any imagery of South Park, they can still use the mathematical models and gameplay of the old South Park slots in new ones. That is because they developed those themselves.

And that is exactly what happened with Arcane Reel Chaos. This slot is a technical clone of South Park Reel Chaos. Four superheroes have replaced the four annoying little punks of South Park, and the baddie Butters has now been turned into a scary supervillain.

With Arcane Reel Chaos, Netent brings a video slot with a tried mechanism and fun bonus features. It is certainly not innovative, but it sure is entertaining.


How does Arcane Reel Chaos work?

Arcane Reel Chaos has a cartoony, apocalyptical theme where four unlikely superheroes with superpowers (Flare, Zero.X, Chrono and Psyop) take up the fight against Deep Pockets, a bald ‘gentleman’ with a dark past.

This Deep Pockets character is especially angry at the world and clearly must be stopped before it is too late.

The slot is played on 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols and has 20 fixed paylines.

Betting starts at $€ 0.20 and goes up to a maximum of $€ 200 per spin.

The theoretical payout rate is high: 96.81% and the variance is medium.

The bonus features appear quite regularly, and those can pay out quite handsomely. Arcane Reel Chaos is not the place to be if you want the real mega payouts of 1,000 x the bet or more.


Symbols and payouts

The wild symbol replaces all other symbols, except the bonus scatter symbols.

Of course, Deep Pockets, with his flashy purple suit, is the symbol with the highest value. Spin 5 of these on an active payline for a prize of 50 x the total bet.

Our four superheroes can also deliver nice prizes: between 7.5 x and 25 x the total bet for every 5-of-a-kind.

Spin 5 the same card symbols (10, J, Q, K and A) for a prize that varies between 2 x and 5 x the total bet.

The Boosters of the superheroes

Every superhero has special powers that are activated randomly:

Flare: this beautiful lady with wavy red hair delivers an extra multiplier, up to 5 x.

Zero.X: Creepy? Absolutely! But this twin does give you 3 to 5 wilds that can be placed on random spots on the reels.

Chrono: the cool Chrono keeps rewarding you with free respins until a winning combination drops. With every non-winning spin, the multiplier goes up to a maximum of 10 x.

Psyop: this intriguing man has telekinetic powers. But that is not all: he also scatters expanded wild reels, two every time he appears.

Free spin bonus

The scatters only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5. Spin all 3 of them, and you win the free spin bonus.

Now the time has come for our superheroes to shine and put a stop to that annoying Deep Pockets once and for all.

The superheroes try to weaken Deep Pockets ever more with every spin. They do this by creating winning combinations, whereby every winning combo ensures that the power meter of Deep Pockets is depleted. When Deep Pockets is defeated, you reach a new level, and the multiplier is increased by +1, up to a maximum of x 4.

But beware! With non-winning spins, it is our superheroes that are weakened. If you get too many spins that amount to nothing, the free spin bonus ends, and you can return home with your tail between your legs.

Did you get to the end by completing all four levels? Then you have defeated that dreadful Deep Pockets, and you win an extra money prize.

Even if it is just a game, you bet you feel great.


Our verdict on the Arcane Reel Chaos video slot

Arcane Reel Chaos looks fabulous and has a fun theme and a tried game mechanism.

So you would expect it to be an excellent slot, and that is precisely what it is.

And now all we can do is hope that there will be a remake of the South Park slot, which we secretly found to be the most fun of the 2.

3.8 out of 5 stars.
