Wazdan games follow a similar layout making it easy to become familiar with them. All you need to do is pick your bet amount from a range of pre-set buttons at the bottom of the game screen. These range from €0.10 to €100 with several options in between. To the left of these betting options, you have tools to configure your gameplay, as well as access to the game rules and paytable. To win, you will need to spin the reels and match three identical symbols across the four reels and three rows in play. There are 54 active paylines in play. The lack of any additional gameplay features makes this an incredibly easy game to play and would be ideal for players new to slot games.
There are nine different standard symbols, as well as a Wild. The lowest paying symbols are the card faces; J, Q, K and A symbols. J and Q symbols payouts are 0.20x the stake, whereas K and A symbol payouts are 0.40x the stake. The rest of the symbols are more thematic. First, there is the Gatehouse symbol, which has a 0.60 payout. The Armored Skeleton symbol has a payout of 0.80 and the Chest symbol is set to 1.20. Lastly, there are the Castle and Black Hawk symbols, which have payouts of 2 and 5x the stake respectively. The maximum achievable win is 5,000 times your original bet and is purely based on your total bet amount.
If it isn’t clear already, there are no Black Hawk bonus features available. Depending on your disposition or playstyle this could be either a good or a bad thing. While it seems that most games favor lots of exciting mechanics, there are some that instead provide a more basic and no-nonsense approach. This harkens back to more old-school casino games and simpler times. More bonus mechanics tend to pile on the rules you need to know and can also influence the RTP in order to balance out the payouts. With all that being said, it would have been nice to have something a little more than just Wilds, even Scatter symbols or a way to trigger some Black Hawk free spins.
The Black Hawk RTP comes in at 96.23%, which is slightly above average. The volatility is promoted as standard, meaning you can expect a medium hit rate.
