Another great slot by Thunderkick goes live, Spectra!
Spectra is the newest game release that is brought to us by the well known software provider, Thunderkick. Although Thunderkick is a relatively new brand, they have gained popularity and the trust from players because of their unusual and interesting games.
Spectra is a slot that lives up to the expectations of the high quality standards Thunderkick has and it brings us back to the 1980’s era of neon lights and underground club music.
It’s not the first time we see a game with a 1980’s inspiration, but it’s refreshing to see that instead of bright and happy colors, it has a neon color scheme and a dark background.
Technically this game is also interesting, as it has 5 reels and 4 rows, but instead of a small amount of pay lines that we’re used to seeing from Thunderkick, this slot has 30 pay lines and still lets us bet as little as $0.10 per spin, while betting on all 30 pay lines.
The bet range is wide and it can go up to a maximum of $100 per spin. The game is all about living in the moment and because of that there are no regular free spins bonus rounds that are triggered by scatters. Instead of that there’s a wild nudge re- spin feature that comes up when a player gets a wild symbol on the reels.
This feature comes up often and the good thing is that the wilds are stacks of 4, so if a player is lucky enough to get another wild during the re- spin, another re- spin is given and you now have several wilds on the screen, which can potentially lead you to a nice win.
What We Love
We love almost everything about this game, starting from the design and ending with the wild nudge feature. We think that the best part of this game is the design and Thunderkick has done a marvelous job in this field.
The sounds are also great as they fit the theme perfectly. What’s best is that the sounds for this game actually feels like music from 1980’s and don’t feel like a regular music for slots. That’s another important attention to details we value.
What We Do Not Like
Spectra is a game with many great qualities but we have to say that payout wise it’s quite noticeable that there’re no regular free spins round. Usually players get their big wins in the free spins feature, but since this game doesn’t have one, the only possibility to achieve great wins is by re-triggering wild nudge feature several times and from our experience that is a hard thing to do.
Another thing we were a little displeased with was the fact that the regular game symbols also have low payouts, where for 5oak win with bars you only get a payout of 10x your bet size.
Spectra is a game that is definitely worth playing. Although we did notice some flaws, the game has really nice qualities and we’d recommend you try this game, just to experience the top notch visual and sound effects that it has.
Even though it seems hard to get winnings over a few hundred times your bet, we think that this game is a good option for keeping your balance steady or help in wagering bonuses.
