Ever since the first footage of Netent’s Sparks slot was released in June, I’ve been eagerly awaiting this new release from Netent. As a huge Netent fan I always look forward to their new games but the look and feel of this one has really tickled my fancy. The colours are bright and exotic and the symbols are of a really unique design, as they seem to be written in fire. When you were young, did you ever have those hand held sparklers, that you could wave around to write words in the dark and the lines would remain in your eyes for a few moments? The symbols remind me of those nights, watching fireworks and twirling sparklers around.
Netent’s Sparks Slot: The Basics
We’ve determined that the graphics are some of the most stunning we’ve seen in a while, but what about the basics of the actual game? Well it’s a 5 reel, 3 row video slot, with 20 fixed winning pay lines. You can amend your coin value and bet level as with all Netent games, meaning you have a great range of stakes to choose from, from low stakes to higher stakes if you’re feeling lucky.
It has an incredibly high return to player ratio of 96.54%. This is only a theoretical percentage and doesn’t guarantee that return over time, however it’s a good indication of how likely you are to win on a video slot and you should work on the basis that the higher the RTP, the higher the chance of winning.
The Sparks slot from Netent will be released on July 23rd 2015 at almost all online Netent casinos and will instantly become playable for free in our Games Lounge.
So what do we have to look forward to in the Sparks slot, other than pretty graphics? The added features, of which there are plenty to keep you entertained.
Expanding Wilds are one of my favourite kinds of Wilds. When the symbol appears on the reels it will expand to the symbols around it, turning them Wild too. And, in case you don’t know, Wild symbols are good! They help to complete a winning pay line in the best way possible, so the more you have at once, the more high winning pay lines will be completed. What’s extra exciting is this Expanding Wild not only expands up and down, vertically, but it can also expand horizontally meaning that more symbols than ever can be turned into a handy Wild.
Win Both Ways
Another popular feature within Netent slots is the Win Both Ways feature where winning lines can be read from right to left, as well as the standard left to right, obviously increasing the amount of ways you can win.
