Conan Slot Theme and Graphics
Conan the Barbarian has been the subject of numerous films, books, comics and video and board games over several decades and now NetEnt is taking the chance to reinvent the tale once again in Slot format.
Taking over this story during the young adult stage of Conan’s life it has captured the apocalyptic tone of the film and setting perfectly, giving the tale a full Slot makeover, and it looks fantastic. The graphics do not disappoint and no detail has been spared from the gloomy and barren, tense music and flawless character design.

Conan Slot Paytable
Conan comes in at first place rewarding a max of 120x your coin bet per line for 6 symbol wins, Thoth-Amon (Conan’s evil adversary for this game) at 110x and Valeria (fierce warrior and friend) at 100x your coin bet per line. Other symbols are a Helmet, Conan’s Sword and a Grappling Hook, rewarding between 70-50x your coin bet per line for 6 symbol betline wins. Lastly, the lower-paying symbols are each characters crest’s, a Lion, Snake and Phoenix rewarding between 20-30x your bet level.
All in all, the base game paytable is not that rewarding and it is disapointing to see, but lines pay both ways.
The bonus rounds and features certainly spice things up, and you’ll need to use them to make worthwhile wins, so pay close attention.
Conan Slot Bonus Rounds and Special Symbols
Linked Reels: Conan uses Linked Reels, which means the reels are divided into 3 sections, each reel paired to its neighbour, and if they link they’ll show the same symbols increasing your winning chances.
Tower Wilds and Battle Wilds: Tower and Battle symbols are Wild, subbing for other symbols except for Scatters. Tower Wilds can only appear on reels 1 + 2 in the main game and expand to cover some or all of the reel vertically. Battle Wilds appear on reels 5+6 (notice the pattern created by using linked reels) in the main game, expanding up to 3 symbol positions sideways, across the reels.
Mystery Symbols and Multipliers: These can appear on reels 3 + 4 in the main game, either single or stacked, and are the Golden Snake symbol. The Golden Snake can change into any non-bonus symbol, with all Mystery Symbols changing to match. Land Stacked Mystery Symbols on reel 3 + 4 and a Mystery Multiplier between 3-7x is awarded to the spin outcome. Manage to land Stacked Mystery Symbols and a Tower or Battle Wild and you’ll activate the highly exciting Thoth-Amon feature.
Thoth-Amon Feature: When activated, 3-6 Mystery Symbols are added to reels 2-5 in any position that doesn’t already show a Wild, Mystery or Scatter symbol. When the reels are filled with exclusively Mystery, Wild or Scatter symbols the round ends with a win.
Choose from 3 Free Spins Rounds
Finding 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatter on the reels rewards 10, 15, 25 or 50 Free Spins and you can pick which round you want to play, we recommend option 2:
City of Thieves Spins: Tower Wilds can appear on all reels and expand up or down on every spin, no other feature except Linked Reels are active.
Temple of Serpent Spins: Mystery and Stacked Mystery Symbols can appear on every reel triggering the Mystery Multiplier and the Thoth-Amon feature (if you score 5-9 Mystery Symbols).
Walls of Tarantia Spins: Battle Wilds can appear on all reels and expand to cover 3 reels spaces, sideways. The only other bonus active is Linked Reels.
All in all, Conan Slot is an experience and one that was worth waiting for. With 4 base game features and 3 Free Spin rounds with upto 50 spins available, this Slot is certainly a spectacle of design. Whilst the main game paytable raised some eyebrows, be sure in the knowledge that as soon as your start activating the special features you can win up to 2,016x your total stake, but you’ll need lady luck on your side. These may not be the best wins available on the market, but still, this game has all the ingredients of a great slot (paytable forgiving) so take it for a spin now or try it in demo mode at 32Red and see what you think for yourself!
