See The Big Wins Soar With Eagle Power Hold and Win

Eagle Power is the latest animal-themed online pokie from the developers Playson. Is the game as magnificent as the bird?

Playson expanded its collection of power animal pokies with the addition of Eagle Power Hold and Win. Eagles are magnificent beats, but is Eagle Power a fantastic poker machine?

We put the game through its paces at Wolf Winner and this is what we found.

Eagle Power Fundamentals

Playson created Eagle Power on a 5×3 layout, which most online casino game developers use. The game is nothing to write home about visually. The plain blue background is meant to look like a mountain range, but is basic. All symbols are well-drawn, but again, are basic. There are limited animations for winning spins.

Sounds are simple, too. An American Indian type chant and music plays while the game is open. It is nonintrusive if a little bland.

Sights and sounds aside, Eagle Power has plenty going for it. It features 20 win lines running left to right, and dozens of bet options from $1 to $100. Playson ranks the volatility at 6.65 out of 10, putting the game in the medium-to-high variance category. In addition, Eagle Power has a hit rate of 30.9%, which means wins occur frequently.

Add to this a maximum win of 2,105x your stake ($2,105 at min-stakes, $210,500 at the highest) and everything looks rosy. That is until you see the Return To Player of only 95.06%. This is a house edge of 4.95% in a game launched mid-2021. There is no need for something so low.

What Are The Eagle Power Symbols

Almost all Eagle Power’s symbols relate to animals. Royals, tens-through-aces, are the lowest value symbols. They pay 0.25 for matching three, up to 2.50x for landing five. Strangely, all the symbols pay the same 0.25 for winning combinations of three.

A lynx and owl make up the mid-value payouts. Land five of the owl for a 7.50x payday. The ram and warthog are the highest standard payouts. Matching five warthogs awards a 12.50x payday. Wilds pay the exact same as the warthog. They are easy to recognise because they are an eagle with Wild written on them.

Symbol Match 3 4 5
Warthog + Wilds 0.75 2.50 12.50
Ram 0.25 2.00 10.00
Owl 0.25 1.50 7.50
Lynx 0.25 1.25 5.00
Royals 0.25 0.50 2.50

Bonus symbols look like balls of fire. They come with x1 to x10 your stake inside them. You need a combination of six or more bonus and power symbols to start the bonus game.

The ultra-rare Power symbol is a golden coin emblazoned with an eagle. It only appears during the bonus game, and has a 1,000x payment for landing five.

Finally, scatters displayed as “free spins” appear on reels 2, 3, and 4. Match three for eight free spins.

What Are The Game’s Bonuses and Features?

A combination of six bonus and power symbols starts the bonus game. All traditional symbols disappear and only bonus and power symbols remain. The game gives you three respins, with an additonal three each time a new bonus or power symbols lands. These symbols remain sticky and lead to some juicy wins.

There is a chance for one last Power Spin if at least five symbols are in view and at least one empty spot remains. In addition, a x2 multiplier is possible that doubles any winnings shown on the board.

Landing a singular power symbol in this round pays out 5x. Any extras trigger one of four jackpots.

  • 2x – 20.00x
  • 3x – 50.00x
  • 4x – 150.00x
  • 5x – 1,000x

Eight free spins are yours for matching three scatters. Blue Striking Wilds can land and spread three standard wilds in random cells. Random wild multipliers of up to 15x are possible.


There is a lot to like about Eagle Power. Playson made a basic-looking machine that has some fun and potentially lucrative features and bonuses. A wide range of bet sizes is always welcome, and the 2,105x top payout is not massive but much larger than similar pokies.

Long time readers of this website know how much we hate low RTP machines. 95.06% just does not cut it in today’s market.

Lastly, it may have been variance playing a part but it took over 400 spins for us to enjoy the bonus round. It was almost worth the wait with an 81x payday thanks, in part, to landing the 50x jackpot. We never got to enjoy free spins, sadly. This may not be the case when you play, it is the luck of the draw.
