Casumo Casino has recently added another new online slot from Thunderkick titled Spectra, no news on the official release date but Casumo has this slot exclusively live and playable before many other casinos.
Spectra is a 5×3 reel slot with 30 fixed paylines, set in a distinct retro theme with the reels made up of classic slot symbols such as BAR symbols and various shape symbols, but this wouldn’t be a Thunderkick slot without some innovation and interesting features, for players who are fans of slots such as Arcader or even dare we say Starburst (but looking for higher variance!).
Gameplay is fast and frenetic in Spectra, with no main bonus round to trigger instead players will be on the lookout for the special Wild Symbols which are present on all of the reels and are heavily stacked in clumps of 4’s on the reels.
Spectra Slot Base Gameplay
The gameplay in Spectra is very simple, the most important symbols on the reels are the stacked Wild Symbols (W), whenever any of these symbols land on the reels a re-spin mechanic is triggered, if during this re-spin any additional wilds land on any of the reels then this process keeps continuing.
The wild symbols will nudge in the direction which takes them closest to the centre of the reels, for example, if the Wild symbol lands at the bottom of the reel it will nudge up 1 place on the next re-spin, and this process will continue until no additional wilds land on the reels during the re-spin phase.
It’s quite possible to land several fully stacked reels of wild, and with a maximum payout of a staggering 2400x bet it also has a huge payout potential too, take note though that the max payout seems to include the cumulative payouts of previous re-spins into account.
The max payout during 1 spin looks to be 600x stake for a full screen of Wilds, but obviously, the way the slot works with nudging wilds, you are likely to pick up several smaller but increasing wins before this huge win occurs.
Spectra Slot – Overall Thoughts
Spectra is a very simple online slot to play and should appeal to players who enjoys slots such as Twin Spin, Arcader and Flux, the neon retro theme works very well and the small touches such as highlighting pays as they form on the reels along with the win animations make it very enjoyable and simply to play.
Even without a proper main bonus to trigger, the gameplay feels exciting, especially when several stacks of the Wilds Symbols have landed on the reels and you have just 1 re-spin for this process to continue.
Spectra feels like a very solid medium variance slot in our playtest, with a RTP (Return to Player) of 96.4% you should enjoy some decent playtime on this slot, and let’s not forget the maximum payout of 2400x stake which is definitely no to be sniffed at.
