Sci-fi from the 1980s meets Egyptian mythology on the neon-glowing slot from Fantasma Games. The retro design comes with sticky wilds, multipliers and respins that can lead to wins of up to 2,689.5 times your bet. Yes, the 0.5 makes all the difference. Slot connoisseurs will be reminded of the most played slot in online gaming, although Starburst is missing the multipliers.
Neo Spin is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded both ways for three to five matching symbols from left to right and from right to left. Get your dose of retro-neon chic on any device from 0.10 to 50 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility coupled with a generous RTP of 96.70%.
It doesn’t take much to look better than the antiquated Starburst but the creative team at Fantasma Games actually made a real effort to give it a modern, classy retro feel. Pink, violet and other neon colours change the appearance periodically to keeps things moving. The reel set itself is frameless with the pay symbols appearing to defy gravity.
We would have to ask the creators as to what the idea of the pay symbol set is as it appears like a mixture of mythology signs from different cultures. They start at the low end with a Chinese lucky coin, the Eye of Horus, a blue geometric flower, the Ankh cross and an artistic take on the scarab. Pays for a five of a kind range from 2x to 5x your stake. The premium symbols are an ice blue unicorn and a green lion head, awarding wins of 12x and 25x your bet respectively. A prism in bright neon colours is the wild symbol, appearing on reels two to four only.
We won’t need different paragraphs to list all features on Neo Spin as it is all connected to the prism wilds. Hit one on any of the centre reels to see it expand into a full reel wild. It then sticks for a respin with any potential new wins being multiplied by x2. If you are lucky to land another wild on the respin, then the procedure will repeat with the win multiplier increasing to x3. Respins end when no additional wild symbols appear or they cover all three centre reels. You will always get one more respin after all three reels have turned into wilds.
The Starburst pay mechanic proves as popular as ever. Although the honours to be the very first slot of this kind falls to the 2008 Power Stars slot from Novomatic, it was only that NetEnt made it popular when they released with Starburst their take in 2012. Fantasma Games has given it with Neo Spin their own touch with the multiplier wilds and an appealing retro-design. Well worth a few spins if you like the pay mechanic.
