Sparks Video Slot Game Tutorial
NetEnt’s Sparks slot is a 5 reel, 3 row, 20 pay line video slot. This firework themed slot has a real autumnal feel and is fully adjustable, so you can play with the bet level and coin value to create the stake you feel comfortable with. To win, you just need identical symbols to appear on a set win line and this game has the standard from left to right (Win One Way) set up as well as a right to left (Win Both Ways) feature too, doubling your chance of winning on Sparks slot. Sparks is one of the more basic slots without any complicated or fancy features, just the Win Both Ways function, Wild symbols and Expanding Cloning Wilds to add a little excitement.
The Win Both Ways mode
In video slot Sparks the player has the option to either play with win lines forming from the utmost left to the right only (Win One Way), or in the Win Both Ways mode, which allows winning combinations to be formed from the right to the left as well. When opening the video slot the player can already choose, but at anytime (in between game rounds) the mode can be changed. Remember that Win Both Ways doubles your winning pay lines, your chances of winning and, of course, your stake!
Wild symbols that substitute for any other symbol (except for Expanding Cloning Wild symbols) to create the highest paying winning combinations can appear on any position and on any reel during the video slot Sparks game rounds, both in the Win One Way mode, as well as when playing with Win Both Ways.
Expanding Cloning Wilds
The Expanding Cloning Wilds of video slot Sparks will only appear on the 2-nd and 4-th reel and will substitute for all other symbols, both in the game’s Win Both Ways mode as with the Win One Way activated. Besides expanding vertically up to 2 positions in any direction (thus possibly covering a complete reel with Wild symbols) the Expanding Cloning Wilds also ‘clone’ the symbol on their right to the position on their left.
Sparks Video Slot Bet Limits
Sparks video slot is played with a bet level of 1 to 10 (20 coins per level), 20 fixed win lines and 8 different coin values from € 0,01 up to € 2,00.
The bet level is the number of coins you bet with each spin. The coin value is the amount of money one coin is worth. So the bet level will be multiplied by the chosen coin value to determine the total amount of money wagered per spin.
The coin values you can choose from in video slot Sparks are: € 0.01, € 0.02, € 0.05, € 0.10, € 0.20, € 0.50, € 1.00 and € 2.00. When you multiply the bet level with the amount of coins per level and the coin value you can calculate the minimum and maximum bets per spin for Sparks video slot.
Minimum bet: bet level 1 x 20 coins = 20 x coin value € 0,01 = € 0,20
Maximum bet: bet level 10 x 20 coins = 200 x coin value € 2,00 = € 400
Pay Table / Win Plan
To see when you will win something or which symbols represent how many coins are won when a winning combination is formed, you can view the pay table. As mentioned earlier, a winning combination is formed by 3 or more identical symbols on a win line and on adjacent reels from utmost left to the right . You can view the pay table by clicking the “i” (information) button. This button can be found at the bottom left of the screen. Only the highest winnings from a winning combination will be paid. When more than one winning combination is formed as the result of a game round, the winnings of all combinations will be added up and of which the sum is paid out.
Video slot Sparks Game Settings
Just like all other video slots offered at NetEnt casinos, Sparks video slot has a number of game settings that can be adjusted to your liking. These settings can be found under the 4 icons at the bottom left of the playing screen. Here you can choose to turn the sound on or off, open the game rules and to turn on the auto play function, so you do not have to click the spin button every time.
