Full Of Energy

If, like us, you’re curious to discover new developments in the world of online slots you’ll probably be keen to know about a new release that’s ‘gone live’ at Neon Jackpot in the last few days. We’ve profiled distinctive slot features before – like Big Time Gaming’s Megaways concept that has begun to appear in ever more variants since its Bonanza slot became a huge global hit – and now we’d like to draw your attention to the delights of Pragmatic Play’s Energy Spins.

A NEW SPIN ON RESPINS?

The game in question is Egyptian Fortune. Now, this slot is never going to win any awards for original theming – it’s yet another set of reels in thrall to the mysteries of Ancient Egypt – but it has a way with free respins that we think many of you will like. Sure, this isn’t the first game to offer free respins in its feature set but it has its own wicked way with the idea which we’ve become rather partial to. As mentioned above, Pragmatic Play has given the idea the moniker of Energy Spins.

The deal is this; every regular symbol and the Wild has one specific winning combination on the paytable that not only pays out when it lands but then goes on to trigger a fixed number of respins straight after. The number of matching symbols in the prescribed win equals the number of respins you get so, for instance, getting 4x Anubis on a payline wins you ninety times your linebet plus four respins. And what’s not to like about that?

PREPARE TO ENERGIZE

Energy Spins are a simple but perfectly formed idea in our view, in fact we’re surprised we’ve not seen it before. Innovating in slots is always difficult for game developers, since players like the buzz of new stuff yet new ideas have to have a certain familiarity about them to feel intuitive – life’s too short to plough through detailed rules isn’t it? With Energy Spins, Pragmatic Play has hit on a fine idea, and it certainly adds a welcome vitality to this new release. Check it out.
