What is this mobile slot about?

The Shadow Order mobile slot promises you a huge mystery spanning decades, with magical orbs that will make or break your initiation into this Push Gaming game.

With a modern steampunk twist, this The Shadow Order slot looks impressive, with a mechanical arm above the reels dropping magical orbs onto the reels, chest pieces, intricate mechanisms, and large tomes full of secrets.

In short, you can’t deny that this Shadow Order grid game looks great. Set on 5×5 reels, where every win creates an explosion and you get more symbols tumbling down, this is for fans of slot games like Gemix by Play’n GO or Finn and the Swirly Spin from NetEnt.

The Shadow Order slot has 4 characters and 3 magical orbs

The characters are more decorational. You start with the Messengers Molly, and she will randomly fully charge the Orb of destruction and drop it on the reels.

You can then collect rings over this 5×5 grid phone slot and collect characters, each character will randomly give you a random feature and you can choose from them. But you’ll need hundreds of spins to just get one new one and they rarely actually do much to impress.

Instead, more often than not, it’s all about the Orbs. 3 cascading wins will open up space and the first Orb will drop. A further 2 wins will drop another Orb, and then another 2 wins after that.

All about the Orbs and the free spins bonus

The Orbs act like wilds and they can trigger special features, like giving you extra wilds, removing symbols, or giving you sticky wins. More than anything, they can drop down the reels and finally land on the bottom right-hand corner where they are collected.

And that’s where things get fun because once collected they trigger 5 free spins. During these free spin, any win will drop one of the orbs down, and those cascades make you feel like you are having more than 5 spins.

Better yet, if the Orbs get all the way down the reels, the multiplier increases. But to be honest, getting to that stage is such hard work, you might wonder if this is the secret in the Secret Order – non-existent multipliers.

This real money game requires patience for big wins, but you have plenty of little wins to keep you going meanwhile. It’s not as good as the Jammin’ Jars online slot, also by Push Gaming, but it has plenty of highlights for fans of the grid slots genre.

In-game bonus features

All Ways Pay and Cascading Win: When 3 or more symbols touch vertically or horizontally, you get a win. Those winning symbols disappear, the rest of the symbols fall downward and more symbols tumble up from above.

Wild: The Order Medal symbol and Orb symbols are wild and will substitute for all other symbols except more Orb symbols.

Orb Symbol: There are three Orb Symbols sitting above and to the left of the grid. They become active when you have multiple cascading wins in a row, 3 wins, 5 wins, 7 wins. These Orbs are wild and stay on screen for as long as you keep having cascading wins.

If an Orb lands on a hotspot, it triggers its a special feature... then after the feature, the Orbs can move again with each spin.

When in Hotspot, the Orbs will:

  • Orb of Destruction - destroys all low paying symbols
  • Orb of Creation - adds 3-6 wilds randomly to the grid
  • Orb of Preservation - the highest paying symbol is held, and all other symbols explode. This continues until no more of the held symbols show up.

If all three Orbs make it to the bottom of the reels, they are collected and the free spins are triggered.

Free Games: When all 3 orbs are collected (see above on how that happen), you get The Shadow Order free spins. During this bonus, the Orbs are automatically added to the reels and remain sticky throughout all the spins.

Character Feature: You have one character you start with (the messenger) and you can unlock a further 3. You unlock the characters by collecting ring symbols, and you can then swap and change between your characters whenever you want.

  • Character 1 (starting character): Fully charges up Orb 1 and clears the top row allowing Orb 1 to fall in.
  • Character 2: Select one low paying symbols and converts them to the highest paying symbols on the grid.
  • Character 3: Add's 1 wild symbol to each column
  • Character 4: Removes all low and mid paying symbols and you get a richer cascade with only high paying symbols.

Closing thoughts

In many ways, with all it's a different collectable feature, cascading wins, and multiple character features, this has a lot in common with the Viking Runecraft slot review which got 5 stars.

So why has The Shadow Order slot review only got 3 stars? Well, honestly, because it's a little frustrating. Yes, you have lots of characters, random features, wilds and orbs, but you need several of these to trigger at the same time to get wins anywhere near 10x your bet.

But this is a fairly low variance game where the point is to keep you playing for as long as you can. And if you can get some of those bigger multipliers during the free spins, there are also some nice wins to be had.

The Shadow Order is a 5x5 grid slot with cascading wins, wild symbols and three orbs than fall and give you special features as they descend. You also get to unlock 4 different characters.
