Kalamba Games are entitled to a small celebration. Age of Huracan is their 50th game, so they are halfway done in reaching that magical 100. We too applaud Kalamba Games, as they have proven that they can make some solid video slots and with every release, that standard of quality rises also. We hope they continue their good streak of fortune. Back to the actual game, Age of Huracan is a 5 reel slot that takes players to the secret Mayan temple, which is dedicated to the Mayan god of wind and storms - Huracan. The word Huracan means hurricane in Spanish, it is also a model of Lamborghini, which is where you might have heard this word before.
In video slots, Aztecs have been widely covered, but the mythological side has received a smaller amount of attention. We all know Zeus, Poseidon or Norse Odin and Thor, but when it comes to Aztec gods, a lot of us fail to name even one. Age of Huracan introduces us to the god Huracan. His Mayan temple is filled with treasures that are ripe for the taking. This slot will make this exciting with a bunch of bonus features and the renowned Kalamba Games bonus mechanisms, such as K Cash and HyperBonus. Through the jungles, we’ve come so far, so it’s too late now to take a step back, the temple of Huracan awaits us.
Age of Huracan Slot Review
Gameplay and Payouts
Surely you have played at least one Aztec themed slot. Quite frankly they all look similar. It’s almost always a temple and the overgrown jungle surrounding it. To be fair, it’s hard to think what else they could show, but with the right imagination, there are no boundaries. Anyhow, for an Aztec slot, Age of Huracan looks well, perhaps a bit boring, but that’s how the majority of these slots go. Of course, we don’t speak for everyone because some of you may love the Aztec setting, in which case Age of Huracan is a great addition to your gaming list.
In our hands, we got a layout consisting of 5 reels and 4 rows. Instead of a couple of lines, Kalamba Games have bestowed us with 1,024. In other words, Age of Huracan provides 1,024 different combinations, which is quite a lot. The symbols too, don’t provide a reason for excitement, but they are okay. Low symbols start with 9 and end with A. Meanwhile, the 5 picture symbols are two glowing weapons and three Mayan warriors. Their eyes are completely white, suggesting that we are dealing with something paranormal here. The top value symbol pays 100x for a full line.
It’s the 50th “birthday” so we are expecting something special from these payouts. From our first look, the payouts are necessarily special, but they do a good job to make Age of Huracan a worthwhile slot. The god of storms has blessed this slot with high volatility. The RTP can fall anywhere between 96.62 – 96.75%, depending on the choice the specific casino makes. In any case, this is a great above-average RTP, even with the lowest value. For such occasions usually, the guest comes with gifts, but in this case, Age of Huracan will be the one gifting players a max win of 10,240x, if you’re willing to take it. Age of Huracan bet range is 0.50 – 60, so very small bets are not possible, but this range should still work finely for most.
Remember how we said that the Age of Huracan visuals are quite basic? Well once you get to the bonus features, a grander display is prepared for you. Let’s start off with K-Cash. Kalamba have given a different name for what simply is another hold & win type of bonus. As it is accustomed to these “K” bonuses, the main idea revolves around collecting stuff. In this case, we are looking out for Blue and Red/Orange K-Cash symbols. The Blue ones add to the cash amount while the Red/Orange ones add to the multiplier meter. This collecting happens during the base game like it is with all “K” bonus slots.
To actually trigger the K-Cash Hurricane feature, you will need to hit 3 K-Cash symbols at once. This will grant you 3 Spins, with all the previous K-Cash symbols locked in. Every additional K-Cash symbol locks in and resets the spin counter back to 3. When you run out of spins, all the symbol values are collected and the available multiplier gets added to the final win.
Besides the K-Cash bonus, there are also the regular Free Spins on Age of Huracan. These are simple Free Spins with no special effects, so it is obvious that the main focus of the game is the K-Cash bonus. Nonetheless, it’s nice to have another possible feature. Free Spins are triggered by 3, 4 or 5 scatters. The award for them is 3, 8 or 15 Free Spins. Retriggers are possible during this feature.
Present as ever is the HyperBonus option. It’s a fancy word for a bonus buy option, which Kalamba Games have provided for all of their newest slots. HyperBonus lets you buy both Age of Huracan bonus features straight away. K-Cash Spins cost 21.2x while Free Spins cost 35.4x or 66.3x respectively for the 8 or 15 Free Spin variant. The K-Cash Spins start with a 5x multiplier.
These “K” bonuses have been widely used in many of the newest Kalamba slots. We have seen a few iterations of the K-Boost, for example in Speakeasy Boost and Joker Times. K-Cash uses a similar collecting mechanism, but the outcome of the bonus is completely different. It’s an interesting way to change up the classic hold & win mechanism. We don’t think that Age of Huracan will inspire a new wave of hold & win slots, but it is an interesting approach which we can really get behind.
We find this sort of Aztec presentation to be a bit boring, but surely some of you will think otherwise, so we can’t say anything too negative about it. It all comes down to personal preference. Age of Huracan slot works fine on all devices and it’s capable of providing some splendid wins, so we think that players will surely have a lot of fun with this Kalamba release.
