Nektan Slots and Games
If you’re not aware who Nektan are, they’re the guys who provide all the games on our site! While they don’t make the games, without them, you wouldn’t be able to play your favourite Kerching titles. Because of this, technically all our games are Nektan slots, which isn't as much of a copout as you'd think.
We've chosen a mix of slots, table games and live casino options to show the breadth of variety on offer with Nektan. So, without ado, let’s have a look at some of our Nektan slots and games.
Pirates Plenty The Sunken Treasure
The first slot we’re looking at was developed by the wonderful team over at Red Tiger Gaming and features a host of sea-faring criminals. It’s Pirates Plenty: The Sunken Treasure, a slot based all around the buccaneers of old who would sail the seven seas in search for buried treasure. As such, it boasts quite a few features to enjoy.
The treasure reel is the main bonus in this game and is triggered by collecting enough of the map symbols. As you land these, a meter will start to fill and, when it is complete, an extra reel will become available. This increases the potential wins you can land and will remain in effect as long as you stay on the same bet level. Speaking of reels, when the treasure reel is in effect, the ship symbol can land fully stacked, which will turn the reel it occupies wild, as well as potentially providing a 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier. The other in-game wild, a monkey, can also offer a boon outside its typical use by initiating a re-spin, with all the low-value symbols removed after landing in a winning combination.
Pirates Plenty also comes with a free spins round, which will trigger if you land the Ocean Spins scatter three times in one spin. Ten spins are awarded, and a new symbol known as the ‘Ghost Captain’ will come into play. Above the reels, you will see treasure chests with three locks on and landing the Ghost Captain will unlock ones of them. When all three are gone, you will receive additional spins, plus one of the low-value symbols will function as a wild for the duration of the bonus. As you can see Pirates Plenty offers a hefty amount of features, with each serving more than one function. With a huge variety in gameplay and one of the best displays we’ve seen, Pirates Plenty is one game that might be worth your pieces of eight.
Dream Catcher Live
While the previous title very clearly resides in the ‘slot’ category, this game offers an entirely different experience. This is because Dream Catcher Live isn’t a slot or even a table game, it is one of a new line of games taking the world of online gaming by storm known as Live Casino titles. The biggest divider between these and their reel shackled cousins is that there is no random number generator. Instead, the games are played out in a live studio, with a real dealer who will oversee proceedings. Because of this, Dream catcher Live offers a more sociable experience than simply playing a slot but still retains the entertainment factor.
Let’s talk about the visuals first, because the display is nothing like a typical slot. For a start, computer-generated graphics are kept to a bare minimum, reserved for the user interface and the few animations present for things like getting a win. So, instead of talking about the rendering of images and symbols, we instead have to focus on set design. The studio itself isn’t too far off Blackpool’s Illuminations, with amusement style lights that show a very bright aesthetic. While you might be used to the virtual spinning of reels, there is none of that here as the wheel in Dream Catcher Live is a physical contraption that is literally spun by the dealer. Honestly, the whole thing looks like a game show.
So how do you play a game without cards our reels? Quite easily it turns out! The dealer will simply spin the wheel and your prospective payout will be dependent on wherever it lands. Six positions will offer different amounts; 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 40, without the payout equivalent to the value of your stake multiplied by whichever number you landed on. The higher the value, the fewer instances of it appear on the wheel. Additionally, there is a 2x and a 7x section at either end that will award a multiplier which will be applied to the next value you land on. It's a truly innovative experience, one that's entertaining too.
From one classic casino experience to another, this game is part of Kerching’s illustrious Table games collection. Unlike the previous one though, this is strictly between you and the computer. If you’ve never played blackjack, there is no need to worry as the game is quite easy to understand. All you have to do is reach a card value that is equal to 21 or closer to that figure than the dealer. If you land over the figure, you’ll go bust and lose the game. The cards are valued at whatever number they are, whilst picture cards are worth 10 and Ace 11 or 1 depending on which is more beneficial to you.
You might think that this game will be featureless, as Blackjack doesn’t typically offer bonuses, but you would be wrong. Since Kerching hosts an upgraded version of the casino mainstay, you’ll’ have access to a few digitally exclusive benefits, the first of which is the Hot Streak Bonus. This will add better multipliers as you rack up consecutive wins, 6x being applied if you land four in a row. Then there is the Power Double, which can only be triggered once per session. If the first card you draw is equal to 9, 10 or 11, you can take an additional card which you can then trade for another if you don’t want it. Finally, we have Multi-hand Blackjack, which will give three independent hands to players per round. Hitting blackjack after wagering a bonus bet could net you a tasty 1000x your stake prize.
Now, you may have heard of Cleopatra and are wondering what the difference is here. The clues in the name, as this version of the game, includes a progressive jackpot that you can win if you are lucky. To do so, you will have to line up the MegaJackpots symbol on the centre payline, after which the value will be awarded. Since this is a progressive jackpot, the total will continue rising until it has been won, so it can reach quite a high figure.
If you haven’t played Cleopatra, we’ll do a quick rundown here, but we’ll be surprised because it is one of the biggest slot games in the world. It is themed after Ancient Egypt and the old queen, Cleopatra. Because of this, you can expect to see plenty of fitting symbols and imagery, but it’s the gameplay that has delighted its players for so long.
For a start, the symbol values in the game can pay out a pretty penny if you are fortunate. For example, if you land the Cleopatra Logo five times in a single spin, you will receive a 10,000 prize and even the lowest valued symbol, the Eye of Horus, will payout a very nice 250x your stake. The game only has a single bonus feature, but it is a good one, especially when you consider the symbol values. It is a free spins round, which will award 15 when first triggered but can increase to 180. Like many similar bonuses, a reel modifier is applied for the duration; in this case, it’s a 3x multiplier for every win you land. If you’re lucky enough to land a high-value combination in this mode, you could land some big wins.
