Apparat Gaming launches Total Eclipse

By Simon Wright, Last updated Jun 30, 2023

Malta licensed Apparat Gaming, who style themselves as the developer of slots with a German accent, are hoping to excite players with a rare phenomenon in its latest release, Total Eclipse.

Total Eclipse combines the simplicity of classic fruit games with the power of the Hold-and-Respin feature to deliver an edge of the seat player experience.

The 5×3 reel, 10 payline game does away with complicated win lines so what you see is what you get. But that’s not to say there aren’t a few surprises in store, including a Star Wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols for added big win potential.

Then there are the Eclipse Symbols that trigger the Eclipse Free Games feature when five or more land anywhere on the reels during the base game. Each Eclipse symbol has a prize value, and these continue to land while the Free Games play out. At the end, their value is combined and added to the win.

While the Free Spins feature is active, the reels transform from 5×3 to 15 single symbol reels. The player then receives three Respins and any new Eclipse symbol that lands will be held into position until the end of the feature. The respins counter is also reset to three.

Total Eclipse has been certified for launch in core regulated markets including the UK, Denmark, the Netherlands, Greece, Bulgaria, Isle and Man, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and of course Germany.

Alina Dandörfer, Co-founder and Director at Apparat Gaming, said: “Seeing a total eclipse is a rare and utterly incredible phenomenon, but with our latest game players can enjoy the same thrill and excitement whenever they like. Of course, it also provides plenty of big-win potential.”

“We look forward to seeing players land those all-important Eclipse symbols and watch as the reels transition and the wins come in.”
