Did you know that Netent do a range of 3D video slots? Many people wont be aware of this but at the time of writing there are actually 14 of these innovative slots available to play on. Most of the time when you look at images on a screen, especially digitally created images (that is to say designed games, rather than a film of real life objects) they look completely flat, not at all 3 dimensional like the physical universe. A 3D game is one that gives the illusion of depth, making the image appear much more ‘real’ and, in the case of video slots, giving a much more engaging and attractive appearance and game experience.
Currently there are 14 3D games on offer, which is a huge amount for any gaming provider. These games take more work and much more attention to detail to make them appear 3 dimensional. The 3D video slots from Netent currently available to enjoy are;
- Gonzo’s Quest
- Jack and the Beanstalk
- Creature from the Black Lagoon
- Robin Hood
- Elements: The Awakening
- Boom Brothers
- The Invisible Man
- Fruit Case
- Space Wars
- Wonky Wabbits
- Jungle Games
Some of these games you’re probably already very familiar with and may not even have noticed the subtle differences. That’s the beauty really, this innovative and incredibly modern design technique shouldn’t be in your face or over the top. It should be almost unnoticeable but instead, give the game a much more pleasing overall effect. Today we’re going to talk about some of the lesser known video slots from Netent, featuring 3D graphics.
Netent’s Jungle Games 3D Video Slot Review
Jungle Games is a 5 reel, 20 pay-line 3D Netent video slot, set in the African Savannah. You’re on safari and find much more than expected; not only is the place crawling with beautiful animals, they’re all sports crazed! The giraffe loves basketball, there’s a weight lifting ape, a rhino who is partial to a little table tennis and much more. As well as the sporty animals, the reels are adorned with other sports imagery such as whistles, boxing gloves and golden medals and trophies.
The game is not only designed in a fully 3D theme, it also has animated Wild and Scatter symbols, adding a bit of extra fun and excitement onto the reels and really making this more like a ‘video game’ and ‘video slot’ hybrid.
3 or more animated Scatters can be clicked to activate a ‘Pick Win’ feature, which puts you firmly in the driving seat, allowing you to either choose a coin win or gamble for Free Spins to potentially reach an even higher win amount. Once clicked, Scatter symbols will show either your Bonus coin win or Free Spin amounts with multipliers of up to x5! What will you choose?
Netent’s Robin Hood 3D Video Slot Review
I have loved the tale of Robin Hood ever since Bryan Adam’s hauntingly beautiful “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You” from the 1991 film and this slot is a perfect depiction of the story in a video slot. It begins with a stunning animated short film showing the King’s guards walking through the forest with a treasure chest of riches, which Robin Hood and his Merry Men do battle for, in order to pour it onto the poor instead.
After this perfect intro (which can be skipped if you’re not into it!) you’re taken to the 5 reel, 20 pay-line 3D Robin Hood video slot. Set on a beautiful autumns day, with golden leaves waving in the gentle breeze, you’ll be spinning Robin Hood and his trusty sidekicks around the reels in order to win. As well as innovative design, the game has innovative features such as Shifting Reels which move one space to the right with every winning line, giving a Free Respin. The shift and respin will continue with every winning pay line.
As you spin and win you will fill up your personal treasure chest. Once this fills with 4 money bags, Free Spins will be triggered, which are fun in themselves, but also offer an extra Wild feature to really up the ante. Plus, unlike any other game I’ve ever seen before, your money bags are linked to your player account and stored for up to a year, so each time you play (at the same casino), you don’t have to start with an empty treasure chest!
Netent’s Space Wars 3D Video Slot Review
Space Wars is a 5 reel, 40 pay-line 3D video slot from Netent, set in outer space. You have been flung into a galactic war for complete control of all space and time in this futuristic, space-age 3D video slot. Every winning spin has the potential to be even more profitable than first thought, as winning symbols are cloned and stacked on the reels in the hope of offering a ‘respin’ type feature for more wins without costing you a cent!
The cloning feature is a huge focus of the game, with the cloning pod situated on the right hand side, the winning symbols flies in there and is duplicated to fill the pod, then flung into the reels for your free Re-Spin, often resulting in even more wins.
The Space Wars reels are covered in 3D animated aliens, alien rock formations, minerals and, of course, Wild symbols which substitute all others with the aim of creating the best possible win available on the reels.
