"Area Link Phoenix '' is based on a beautiful Phoenix, oriental theme. The minimum bet per spin is $0.20, while the maximum bet can shoot upto $50. The relatively high RTP of 96.46% increases the chances of bigger wins, though the medium variance may make the payouts a little less frequent. However, the 5,000x and 3 re-spins paired with the favorable RTP are good terms, especially at a very affordable max bet of $50. Stepping back, the regular payout range of 0.01x - 10x is a massive disappointment, with just 3 respins and a petty 5x during the upgrade feature. The over-hyped bonus rounds hardly offer much to compensate for the poor regular payouts. So unless players are aiming for the top game with 5,000x, this slot may fail to impress the mid and high rollers. Players can also try the Area Link Phoenix free version, before wagering real money. But if players prefer more engaging themes they can try out Book of Oz if they are attracted to the themes of Magic. Or they can try out Agent Jane Blonde returns for max wins upto 12,000x.
