Five fearless warriors through history dare you to fight the good fight in this NextGen Renegades mobile slot.
We love a good game theme, and this NextGen slot game has more than that: it’s got a great theme.
Each of the five renegade female leaders come with their own backstory, which for some reason, NextGen told us, but isn’t explicit in the game.
We won’t put in the main body of this Renegades slot review; but if you are interested (it certainly adds a little flavour to the spins) it’s in the features below.
This Renegades slot machine has 243 ways to win and comes with symbols of all shapes and sizes.
They can cover a whole reel, or two symbols diagonally, or three vertically, or a box of 2×2 or 2×3 or, pretty much any shape.
A little like in Spinata Grande video slot, except with more variety.
It’s a fun way to basically say that this mobile game has a whole load of stacked symbols, which you are going to need to survive the battle and win the war.
There are no multipliers on these 5 reels, so the big slot wins can come at any point.
But the way they come is generally through the Mega Symbol, which covers a 3×3 space and generally the first three reels.
Then, you watch in anticipation as the other two reels slowly fall into place, hoping that the right symbol gives you 5 reels full of wins.
We say near perfect because the top win doesn’t reach the heights of some less risky slots, like say the Secrets of The Stones by NetEnt.
But you know what? It’s close enough, especially as whereas Secrets is slow and meandering, this Renegades slot lives up to its name, full of fast action and energy that kept us enthralled in these five beautiful strong ladies.
Add a free spin bonus round, where you get one female companion only, giving you a bigger chance at catching bigger wins, and we were sold the moment we started spinning.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again; NextGen don’t get half enough credit for the top high variance high energy games they create, like this one, or even the Wild Run game on mobile.

The Backstory: As promised, this is the backstory of each of the main five characters as given to use by NextGen Gaming studios. If you are not interested, just skip to the next part.
In order of highest paying to lowest paying:
Freya Valkyrie of Valhalla: "Her origins are shrouded in mystery. Some say she is a descendant of Odin. Queen of the North and conqueror over all the lands of ice and snow. She is cool, calm and commanding, as she leads her armies to victory and rules her sovereignty at the end of her sword."
Harriet Hellstorm: Harriet is the intrepid warrior of the skies and a highly decorated Air Force Major, often given the moniker ‘angel of death’. The streak of her blood red scarf against the clear blue sky strikes fear into the very soul of her adversaries
Valda Dragonslayer: "A noble knight and ‘the champion of justice’, Valda’s grace and beauty are a stark contrast to her fearlessness and intense skill in battle. The last thing many witness is a flash of her keen-edged sword."
Raffaella Blaze: "Heroine of the rebellion and ruler of the revolution. The only mechanism that is anywhere near equal to this gunslinger’s marksmanship skills is her legendary beauty"
Ivy Sabreclaw: "Guardian of the woodlands and protector of her people, Ivy’s legend conveys that she can summon fierce forest beasts to battle at her side. Don’t be fooled by this ‘princess of the Earth’, or you might end up with a little hemlock in your highball."
Honestly? We'd rather hang out with any of these badasses than any of the NetEnt Warlords slot leaders.
Wilds: The flames are wild, and can be used to create winning combos over these Renegade phone slot reels.
Mega Symbols: Whilst all symbols come stacked to a certain extent, every once in a while, the first 3 reels will lock into place, with only one mega symbol showing.
The other two reels will then spin slowly, hoping to increase those multiple 3 of a kind wins, into 4 or 5 of a kind.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 scatter symbols anywhere on screen will trigger 8 free spins.
At that point, one of the five Renegade ladies will be chosen, and will be the only high paying symbol showing up on the reels, increasing your chance of catching some big wins.
It's not guaranteed, by all means, but this is a rebellion - no one said it was going to be easy.
But this Renegade online slot has more art and more individuality to it, making the design appeal to both guys and gals - something slots like Girls with Guns Jungle Heat never came close.
Of course the big appeal is the mega symbols and 243 ways to win, which combined create for a novel, but easy on the eye effect.
Add some intense wins on pretty much any spin, including a fun free spin round, and you'll quickly join this rebellion, if only for the loot.
