Coba Reborn Slot Features
A 7x7 grid filled with round symbols awards wins whenever at least 5 matching ones land adjacent to each other, forming a cluster. Every successful combination disappears from the board, triggering a cascade of remaining icons that make room for new instances dropping from above. Standard payouts grant from 0.5 to 25 times the bet for hits on low-value emblems of a tortoise, a salamander, and a monkey. Premium symbols represented by green, blue, and red gems plus a golden mask award up to 500 times for sets of 15 or more.
Every winning cluster contributes to the Snake Meter with the number of symbols involved in the win. Filling the progress levels up the meter and generates snakes on the grid. Reaching the middle point of the meter without completing it awards Random Wilds. Each of the stages between 1 and 3 activates 3 snakes from randomly selected entry points on the sides of the board. Reaching level 4 awards 6 snakes.
Snakes spawn either from entry points marked on the sides of the grid or from Orchids. They are walking clusters of matching symbols that move randomly around the board. In order to survive another cascade, a Snake must eat the symbol type it has selected, a Wild, or an Orchid, otherwise it will disappear. Eating any of the qualifying icons grows the Snake, resulting in a larger cluster.
Whenever two Snakes cross each other, the position of the crossing will gain an x2 multiplier. Further occurrences in the same spot will double that value each time.
Snakes die and disappear from the grid when they collide with their own path or eat their own tail unless they've previously collected a protective Orchid.
Orchids appear randomly between regular symbols and award special features when they're eaten by a Snake:
- Blood Orchid received energy from any other Orchid visible on the grid and spawns a Snake. When eaten, it generates a random number of new Snakes.
- Ouroboros Orchid protects the Snake from dying when it bites itself, creating a multiplier instead.
- Hydra Orchid grows a new head, spawning a new Snake.
- Rebirth Orchid revives the Snake when it dies.
Both Coba Reborn and its predecessor are a perfect representation of what a fusion of a slot machine and a classic retro video game Snake would look like. And even though the two are lightyears apart regarding the complexity, we can't help to notice the resemblance, especially when observing how the serpents devour the required symbols to grow and award higher wins. The sequel efficiently builds on the mechanics from the original, introducing several new, exciting additions to diversify the gameplay. Since the game lacks a traditional bonus round, enhancing its core Snakes feature with boosters in the form of Orchids feels like an excellent move. Additionally, a seemingly small boost dropping Random Wilds whenever the meter reaches the middle point can often become a turning point in the sequence and lead to a massive chain reaction. These are all the signs of meticulously-crafted improvements that competently add new layers of anticipation to each spin.
Visually, Coba Reborn moves to a darker, more mysterious environment compared to the bright, golden original. It's undoubtedly more atmospheric and, in a way, intimidating, with the eerie cobra totems towering above the grid and the obscure temple looming in the distance behind. Overall, it's a truly mesmerizing scene brimming with clean, detailed symbols and spectacular effects accompanying all special events.
