Game Properties

The soft light from the crescent moon shines down on Primal Spirits as it is located in a rural space, at night. The surrounding of the 5 reel – 3 row game grid has swaying trees and green grass that moves with every gentle breeze. An old totem pole helps you to win 25 ways.

This highly volatile slot is playable on any device. You can place bets from 0.25 up to EUR/USD 100 per spin. The Return to Player (RTP) percentage is an average of 96.02%. When buying the free spins the RTP is increased to 96.53%.

The maximum win on this slot is 8,623 times your stake which isn’t too bad but less than many other slots currently available. Anything below 10k is a little underwhelming.


Primal Spirits has high and low paying symbols. Three to five matching symbols create a win. The high paying symbols have the same corresponding colors as the low pays. The premium symbols are four spirit animals: Red wolf, purple bear, green kat-like animal, blue owl. Landing a 5-of-a-kind of these spirit animals awards 2-5x the bet.

The low pays are gems in the following colors: Red, purple, green, blue and they will pay 1.2x the bet for a 5-of-a-kind.

The yellow/golden Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols but not the Scatter, which is needed to trigger free spins. It also pays up 5X its own value!

Bonus Features

Primal Spirits is not a difficult game. After a few spins you’ll grasp what’s going on.

Tumbling Reels

The tumbling reels remove winning symbols from the grid. Existing symbols drop down and new symbols appear on top of the field, filling the gaps.

Totum Trance

After a tumble, the top totem symbol will upgrade all lower paying symbols to high-paying ones if it’s blue, green,red or purple. A red light will, for example, upgrade all red gems into red wolves. When the top of the totem is gold, all the low paying symbols will be upgraded.

Color Multiplier

In the base game all multipliers start at +1. When a low paying symbol is upgraded, the corresponding multiplier on the right of the grid will be increased by +1. It keeps growing as long as you make tumbling wins.

The golden totem increases all Color Multipliers when transformed in the same situation. The multipliers reset between spins in the base game, but not in the free-spin rounds.

Thunder Free Spins

The bonus game is triggered when you land at least 3 scatter symbols. Three scatter symbols award 10 free spins. With every extra scatter you land, 5 additional free spins are awarded. You can retrigger the free spins while playing the bonus game.

All the accrued multipliers from the base game will be transferred to the bonus round.

The Thunder Free Spins round ends when no free spins are left.

Buy a Bonus

You can buy the Thunder Free Spins bonus game by paying 150x the bet. As mentioned before the RTP increases to 96.53%.

Quickspin has created another slot with an excellent theme, although it lacks the same adventurous story as some other games. The graphics are really well done, and they partner with the music perfectly but the 25 paylines are way less than an all ways pay.

The free spins bonus round is something genuinely extra since the multipliers don’t reset between each spin. It is building up for bigger and more lucrative wins by every spin.

Overall speaking – Quickspin’s Primal Spirits is a slot machine that takes players to an Native American setting. The lower paying symbols can be upgraded and transformed into higher-paying animal spirit icons in order for them not only to earn more money but also to connect with Mother Earth in a symbolic way.

We’re not entirely convinced, but it certainly wasn’t bad at all!
