Razor Returns Slot Features
The main gameplay uses a 5x5 setup where wins must consist of at least 3 matching symbols landing on any of the 40 pay lines. All combinations must start from the left side of the board and continue rightwards along adjacent reels. Standard payouts award between 0.1 and 1 time the bet for scoring on low-value icons represented by an anchor, a compass, a periscope, and a diving helmet. Premiums take the shape of four sharks, each in a different color, and award from 0.2 to 7.5 times the bet. The titular Razor is a Wild, substituting for all standard symbols and paying up to 12.5 times for 5-of-a-kind hits.
Blocks of seaweed represent a mystery symbol. They appear on all reels and always in stacks of 5. Upon landing in view, all visible instances will reveal a matching image.
Nudge & Reveal Feature
When at least one Mystery Symbol is present on the grid, it triggers the nudging feature. On every successive spin, the reel with the stack will move one position down until the whole 5-piece block has passed through the grid. Each reel can contain an individual stack that nudges down in the same fashion.
Razor Reveal Feature
Apart from revealing regular symbols or Wilds, Mystery Symbols can also display a Golden Shark emblem. In such a case, the Razor Reveal feature is triggered. Each position will spin individually and deliver one of the following features:
- Instant Prize between 1 and 5000 times the bet.
- Multiplier with a value of 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x. It will multiply all visible Instant Prize icons and spin again to deliver another outcome.
- Collector that absorbs values from all Instant Prize symbols and respins them to deliver another outcome.
- Converter spins to reveal one of the regular symbols that are currently in view. All instances of the selected icon will turn into Golden Shark emblems.
- Scatter Torpedo Symbol
- Nudge Up (only in free spins) moves all visible Mystery Symbol stacks one position upwards.
Razor Returns Free Spins & Gamble Feature
Landing 3, 4, or 5 Torpedo Symbols activates the bonus round with a starting multiplier of 1x, 5x, or 25x, respectively. Before the game begins, players are offered to gamble their won bonus for one with a higher starting multiplier, up to a maximum of 100x. However, there's also a risk of losing it entirely.
Free spins start with the 2nd and 4th reels covered by a fully-stacked Mystery Symbol. The feature progresses identically as in the base game, nudging down the seaweed-bearing reels on every spin. Additionally, every nudge increases the win multiplier by 1. The bonus continues as long as there is at least one Mystery Symbol on the grid or the maximum win of 100,000x has been achieved.
Razor Returns slot offers several options for triggering features and bonuses for a fixed price:
- Free Spins with an x1 starting multiplier for 106 x bet.
- Free Spins with an x5 starting multiplier for 186 x bet.
- Free Spins with an x25 starting multiplier for 550 x bet.
- Free Spins with a random starting multiplier for 200 x bet.
- Razor Reveal feature with all 25 positions active for 500 x bet.
If there was ever a perfect follow-up to an already excellent slot, Razor Reveal undoubtedly deserves such a title. Push Gaming created a true masterpiece, capitalizing on the best parts of the predecessor and boosting their winning potential. Everything, from the base grid to the maximum win cap, grew larger and stronger while staying faithful to the core mechanics of Razor Shark. Players can now benefit from a slightly longer nudging sequence thanks to the additional row, plus an array of extra special symbols in the Razor Reveal feature, offering significant boosts alongside Instant Prizes up to 5,000x. On top of that, the full-screen Razor Reveal, purchasable through the Bonus Buy option, feels like an entirely independent bonus with an incredible win potential.
From the audiovisual perspective, Razor Returns offers a balanced environment resembling the one used in its predecessor but introduces plenty of humorous details on the shark symbols, especially the group's leader. Full of bling and glam, Mr. Razor roams the deep armed with a gold-tooth jaw, waiting for unfortunate divers to cross his path. And, customary to Push Gaming's products, the level of consistency and finish on every single asset is just impeccable.
