Space Wars online slot review
There seems to have been a steady level of anticipation regarding the latest online slot from Net Entertainment; fans of the genre will know that Space Wars has been trailed for some time and now it’s here so after a couple of days play we can tell you all about it.
This is a game that was released in 2014 and it features an earlier unseen re-spin feature. Each winning spin on Space Wars generates a re-spin. During this spin, more of the same symbol as you just won with is added to the reels for that re-spin only. This increases the chance for a win a lot.
The better win you get on the first spin, the larger the potential is for the re-spin. There are no other features on Space Wars, but since the re-spin feature is activated after any win, it actually feels okay that there’s no other features. The maximal potential win during a single spin is 1.000x the stake, but it can technically be doubled during the re-spin feature. The RTP for this game is 96.80%.
The game itself tells the story of a number of different alien species battling to capture a powerful crystal but any narrative takes second place to the gameplay; it’s a very nice looking game with some incredibly cute looking characters who can also be incredible violent to each other. There are plenty of 3D effects when you land winning combos and it’s all set against a well-rendered stellar background. Off to the right hand side is a the cloning chamber, one of the main features of this game.
This is a five reel, forty payline slot with four rows and it features five different aliens with the smaller ones worth the least while the more valuable aliens are larger, armed versions of the smaller ones; from lowest to highest value they are coloured as follows – purple, blue, green, olive and orange. There is also a ‘wild’ symbol and the really valuable red crystal symbol.
The re-spin feature is triggered by any win during the base game. When a win is generated, the winning symbol will be sucked into the teleporter shown on the right hand side of the game. These symbols will den be teleported back to the reels for the upcoming re-spin. This means that during the re-spin, a lot of extra symbols matching the triggering win symbol will be added to the reels. This has a huge impact on what kind of symbols that will appear on the re-spin. I would estimate that about 9 out of 10 re-spins contain a winning combination. After a re-spin has finished, your free to play along with the normal reels again.
