Star Trek by IGT
The latest instalments in the Star Trek movie franchise were both well-received and popular and they are definitely two ingredients that slots developers look for when selecting the themes for their latest branded slot games. The winner when it came to securing the license for this game was IGT which is obviously great news for players as they rarely fail to deliver when it comes to official action and here, Trekkies and slots players alike can certainly get their fill of space bound action with an ensemble cast of familiar characters.
There are plenty of win lines on the game – thirty to be precise – so fans of fast paced action and rapid wins will be right at home. The game features photorealistic depictions of the main cast as the most valuable symbols, including the usual suspects of Spock, Kirk, Scotty and Uhuru and, in a rather nice twist, even the playing card icons have been designed as a combination of the logo font and the traditional Starfleet badges.
The standard Star Trek symbol is the wild card, but there is plenty more to explore by way of feature symbols to the point where it could be seen as even being a little complex. Fortunately, we’re familiar enough with the bonus rounds to be able to explain them in a pinch!
A Bonus for Every Star Trek Crew Member
Actually, maybe we overstated the complexity of the bonus game. Basically, you’ll need two standard scatters and one featuring the characters themselves. The bonus you receive depends on the character symbol as they all offer their own subtle additions to the feature round:
- Spock’s Bonus: Here, players receive between ten and fifteen free spins with Spock serving as an additional wild card. In the true spirit of friendship, and Kirk symbols that form part of a winning combination will also apply a two times multiplier to the prize.
- Kirk’s Bonus: In this bonus you’ll only receive between three and six free spins. However, they’re effectively win spins, as only winners knock one off the total. Those wins become even sweeter compared to their base game counterparts too thanks to an automatic three times multiplier.
- Scotty’s Bonus: Scotty awards a decent haul of ten free spins and you’ll start the round with a multiplier of between two and five times. Following the fifth spin, this multiplier will double in value so this feature really is a game of two halves.
- Uhuru’s Bonus: Uhuru’s bonus is perhaps the simplest of all as you’ll scoop somewhere in the region of six to twelve spins, with additional high value symbols being added to the board in place of some of the playing card icons for bigger and better wins.
While the theme doesn’t quite make its presence overly felt as part of the features, aside from being named after a leading character, the visuals should be more than enough to satisfy Star Trek fans and it’s a great all-round game overall. You’ve also got a choice of games here at Games Mania too, as we’ve also got the slot based on the sequel, Star Trek – Against All Odds, so you can try both with no deposit to see which you prefer!
