Incinerator, which was released on January 1, 2016, is a futuristic casino game from Yggdrasil Gaming. Incinerator is set in space; this theme also appears in other Yggdrasil’s games like Cazino Cosmos (January 2019) and Robotnik (March 2014). Incinerator’s space-inspired rival games include Space Covell One from Portomaso Gaming and Space Traders from Revolver Gaming.
The term “incinerator” is synonymous with earthly waste management, whereby waste is treated through combustion; however, the Incinerator game deals with space waste—it could be occurring naturally like or artificially—and the game play is all about burning these debris in an alien worldwide dump site. Incinerator players match three, four, or five win symbols.
Incinerator Game Characteristics
Incinerator is rated 25% in terms of volatility. This game’s 5X3 grid supports 20 fixed pay lines. These are Incinerator’s symbols: a blue turbojet engine, a pink air conditioning system, a golden diamond symbol, a yellow triangular air cleaner, a purple space pod, a red vacuum chamber, and a Wild/substituting symbol.
The introduction video, which can be skipped, mentions “Junk Planet—DS 41” as the planetary setting of Incinerator. Next, a page notifies players of the wild pattern feature-triggering consecutive wins, and sixteen wild patterns that offer generous payouts. The coin values offer these options: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.05, $0.07, $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $0.70, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, $6.00, $7.00, $8.00, $9.00, and $10.00.
The cash bets for Incinerator are: $0.20 (this is the minimum total bet), $0.40, $0.60, $1.00, $1.40, $2.00, $4.00, $6.00, $10.00, $14.00, $20.00, $40.00, $60.00, $80.00, $100.00, $120.00, $140.00, $160.00, $180.00, and $200.00 (this is the maximum bet). Once the stake has been placed, the Incinerator players click the start icon to start the spinning process, whose speed can be controlled–by using a speed slider with a tortoise on one end and a hare on the other end.
These are the Incinerator’s payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations, respectively. The red turbojet engine pays X7, X75, and X200. The pink air conditioning system offers X6, X40, and X100. The golden diamond symbol offers X5, X30, and X80. The triangular air filter offers X4, X25, and X70. The pink space pod gives X3, X20, and X60. The red vacuum chamber pays X3, X20, and X50.
Successful combinations always move to pave way for other cascading symbols, which can happen several times in a game round. In fact, when the Incinerator players win three times consecutively, it activates a “Wild Pattern”, which is consists of symbols becoming wild and filling the small grid beside the larger grid. Appearing like the patterns formed by a brick game device, the “Wild Patterns” can appear in sixteen different shapes. Incinerator’s non-progressive jackpot is 60,000 coins.
The Incinerator software is fancy; the sound effects are futuristic, and there is relevance therein, especially because of the occasional loud sound associated with escaping pressurized steam. Graphically, the step by step biomass incineration process showed in the glamorous introduction video is a befitting prologue; however, some of the sections might be disturbing, especially the seemingly heaps of human remains that are about to be incinerated.
