Star Trek – Against All Odds

The first Star Trek game from IGT, naturally based on the movie that led into the one that this game is based on, was an unsurprising hit for the developer and so it came as no surprise to see the second move receive the same treatment in virtually record time. The movies themselves, while fun to watch, were pretty similar in terms of storylines and characters and so IGT needed to take it upon themselves to do things a little differently under their own steam. The result was returning to old faithful – the Multiway Xtra layout popularised by games such as Siberian Storm, an all-time classic in its own right – and thus Star Trek – Against All Odds was born.

If you’re familiar with Siberian Storm, its follow up Sumatran Storm or even games like Fire Opals, then you’ve got the perfect head start on how this game plays out. The unique board layout makes for some entertaining winning combinations that can number up to 720 thanks to prizes paying both from left to right and right to left. A wild card appears and is particularly valuable given the format and there are returns for all the leading characters from the movie including Spock, Kirk and McCoy.
The base game incorporates a randomly triggered bonus known as Energising Wilds. This can take place after any spin and will see a target hitting the board, meandering among the three middle reels. Between two and five symbols will be turned into wild cards and the remaining symbols will be calculated once again to award any new prizes made possible by the additional wilds.

The main bonus game on Star Trek – Against All Odds can be tricky to trigger, but it is well worth doing so. You’ll need a Romulan Warbird on each of the five reels to enter the feature and this is where your reflexes really come to the fore. You’ve got 45 seconds to defend yourself, using the mouse to take out missiles as they’re fired at the ship. These missiles are worth between a hundred and 500 points each and your total score when the time expires determines your rank and therefore your prize. The better you do, the higher the cash values on the wheel that is spun at the end of the round, with up to 22,500 times your total stake on offer for the most successful fighters.

There are few adrenaline rushes in slots gaming and even fewer even come close to what’s on offer here on Star Trek – Against All Odds. There is little to say about the game other than you don’t even need to be a Trekkie to enjoy it – it really is just that good! Stop what you’re doing, scroll back to the top of the page and get playing!
