Sequels are never simple, and they certainly aren't when you're trying to outdo a classic game like the original Razor Shark. Razor Returns is another landmark release from Push Gaming that is certain to draw sizable crowds for years to come. To begin with, Push Gaming has done pretty much everything right with this sequel. It has crisper graphics, meaner-looking sharks, and a generous 10% ante bet that significantly improves the experience. The RTP for Razor Return is varying and runs from 96.16% to 96.55%. Now that one can win up to 1,00,000 times the wager, the game has a whole new level of complexity because of the unusual symbols you acquire from the razor reveal function. The problem however lies with the range of regular multipliers - The premium animal symbols, which include orange, purple, green, and blue sharks, pay between 0.2x and 7.5x the maximum bet for combinations of three or more. The mean-looking silver shark that serves as the Wild symbol pays 1x - 12.5x the highest wager of $100 when it appears 3-5 times and substitutes for all other pay symbols to create winning combinations. The low-paying symbols include pipes, anchors, watches, helmets, and watches. 12.5x is an embarrassingly low payout for a game that offers a 1,00,000x max win. Players can also try the Razor Returns free version to practice and increase their chances of a win. Looking for more such thrilling games?

In all phases of the game, Mystery Symbols can appear on any reel and land in stacks of 5. Nudge & Reveal is then activated as a result.
Nudge & Reveal
The first step in the Nudge & Reveal function is to reveal the randomly chosen pay symbol that all of the mystery symbols change into. Additionally, they can reveal the wild shark and golden shark symbols. The mystery symbols move one position down for the following spin if pay symbols are revealed, offering a possibility of winning. Each nudge/spin causes a new random symbol to be revealed, and this process continues until all mystery symbols have been nudged off the bottom of the grid.
When the Golden Shark shows up during the nudge & reveal feature, the Razor Reveal round begins to operate. One of five special symbols, which function as follows, will thereafter appear on all Golden Shark positions.
The bet multiplier levels for instant prize symbols range from 1 to 5,000 times your initial wager.
All the instant prize symbols including the collector symbols have their value increased by a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x when a multiplier symbol is present.
All current instant reward symbols are eliminated by the collector symbol. Any of the unique symbols can then land on the vacant spaces.
The converter symbol helps to replace every instance of a random pay sign with the golden shark symbol. The original symbols are restored once the feature is over. During the bonus round, the Nudge Up symbol only moves all mystery stacks up one position.
To start the Bonus Round, you must have three or more torpedo scatter symbols visible on the same base game spin or during the razor reveal feature. Three triggering scatters offer you a win multiplier of 1, and four and five triggering scatters give you multipliers of 5x and 25x, respectively. If you wish, you can wager for a more significant initial multiplier, but doing so puts the entire feature in danger.
From the very beginning of the bonus round, reels 2 and 4 are completely covered in Mystery symbols, which move one position for each free spin. The win multiplier increases by one with each nudge, and the bonus round continues as long as mystery symbols are visible.
Bonus Buy Option
To extend the feature, you can add more mystery symbol stacks, and players can choose from the following Bonus Buy options:
Get three free torpedo spins for a wager of 106x (96.27% RTP).
186x your stake will get you 4 Torpedo Free Spins with a 96.52% RTP.
550x your investment will get you 5 free torpedo spins (96.78% RTP).
200x your bet will get you random free spins with a 96.51% RTP.
500x your bet will get you the Razor Reveal feature (96.68% RTP)
RTP and Payouts
The RTP for Razor Returns varies. The game's payout ratio varies depending on where you play and ranges between 96.16% - 96.55%. When it appears 3-5 times on the reels, the ominous-looking silver shark that acts as the Wild symbol pays 1x -12.5x the highest wager of $100. Sharks in the colors of orange, purple, green, and blue are among the other valuable symbols; combinations of three or more of these sharks pay between 0.2 and 7.5 times the maximum stake.
Max Win and Top Multiplier
The biggest win or top multiplier is a tempting 1,00,000x and the highest payoff for a regular symbol is 12.5x the top bet is $100 (for Wild shark). The game also offers an exclusive bonus payout of 5,000x.
