How to Play

Here’s the thing: Renegades – true to its name – plays slightly differently to other slot games you might have tried.

  • First, you need to select your bet amount – this is done by clicking on the coin symbol, just next to the Play button. There, choose anywhere between the minimum bet – 1p – to the maximum bet – £2.
  • If you’d like to change the paylines you’re playing, click the Settings cog, and slide the ‘243’ paylines to the amount you want to play.
  • Click the Play icon – the big, green triangle on the right-hand side of the screen and start playing.

Important symbols in Renegades:

♦ Wild: WILD symbol with orange background

♦ Scatter: SCATTER symbol with blue background

Jackpots

Unfortunately, Renegade doesn’t have a progressive jackpot attached – but it does have some high payouts if you’re lucky enough to spin them! Spinning 5 Freya, Valkyrie of Valhalla symbols will land you with the 200 coin payout, while Harriet Hellstorm will also give lucky players a 150 coin payout if you spin her across all 5 reels. Renegade has a RTP of 96.37%, and is a medium-high variance slot.

Special Features and Bonuses

There are a fair few extra features on offer in Renegade:

  • Renegade Free Games: Win 8 free games when 3 or more scatter symbols appear on the reels. During these free games, the reels will contain only the Renegade symbol and a selection of others, which will help you to spin winning combinations. The free games can also be retriggered.
  • Renegades Mega Symbols: This is pretty cool, if you’re lucky enough to see it happen! When you spin, you might see 2 or 3 reels lock together, spin together and then show you a Mega Symbol – e. one of the Renegade heroines, spread across 2 or 3 symbols.

Graphics and Sounds

The graphics, to put it mildly, in this game are gorgeous. Finished in a photo-realistic style, you’ll likely spend a good few minutes just taking in the beauty of the design – each of the 5 Renegade heroines are beautifully rendered – so much so that you might find it hard to take your eyes off of them!

The other symbols are nicely finished and animated too – many winning combination will pop out from the reels, grouped together and shimmering. Each symbol has more detail on it than you would have noticed, unless you look closely – the WILD symbol has a background of fire; he BONUS symbol has a background of ice.

The music is interesting too – melancholy string instruments play before and as you spin the reels, with the reels clicking nicely into place once your spin is over. You’ll hear a nice ‘ding’ once you actually win, and some triumphant music when you win an extra feature.

Conclusion

As one of NextGen’s newer online slots, there’s a lot to like about Renegade. Firstly – the 243 paylines. Then, the beautifully drawn heroines – we do like a nice strong woman featuring in our slot games!

Otherwise, we would have liked to have seen a concrete, separate bonus round or two – but we won’t grumble with the free games round, or those fabulous (and rewarding) mega symbols either.

Ultimately, with a maximum bet available of just £2, and a jackpot win of 200 coins, this is definitely one for those who prefer to keep their stakes low – although even high-rollers will appreciate the gorgeously-rendered symbols and gameplay.
