Spectra

Spectra is the latest video slot to emerge from Thunderkick’s digital assembly line. The new online slot machine features a very 80s and very spacey theme to it. There have been a few of these retro video slots to be released of late, so Spectra could have some competition in that department.

The basic premise of the game is that of a fruit machine (of sorts), with shapes taking the place of fruit, and your classical bars, sevens, and bells appearing on the reels appearing on the reels, too.

Spectra is very neon in design, and despite its simplistic appearance, it does actually carry a number of special wild features for you to enjoy.

Developers

Thunderkick are out to prove something with this slot. They have fallen behind other developers of slots (when it comes to releasing new slots), so the fact that Spectra’s launch comes at a time when several other Thunderkick slots were released is concerning.

If simplicity was what Thunderkick were going for with this slot, then well done. If the simplicity element to Spectra comes because they were in a rush to release new games, that is a bit disappointing. Fortunately, the slot is so good that most players won’t even care about that.

How to play

The wagering control bar at the bottom of the reels is exactly the same as you will find in any other Thunderkick released slot, so you shouldn’t be too concerned about how it all works Thunderkick have chosen to allow you to click on the chip button to choose bets of 0.10 up to 100.00 in total.

These are not line bets, but actual total bets. The slot features 5 reels and 30 paylines in all, so the fact that you are getting 20 lines for free (effectively) is tip-top.

Features

Wild symbols: The multi-coloured “W” symbol acts as a wild icon in Spectra. When this symbol crops up on the reels, it can replace all other icons without exception. It is important to note that wilds can appear stacked in groups of 4 symbols upon the reels of this slot.

Wilds are fairly common in this video slot, so you can expect them to make quite the difference to your gameplay. Another point to note about wilds is that they also do various things, such as the following.

Wild re-spin: When a set of stacked wilds appear on the reels, a re-spin will be granted. Players will keep bagging free re-spins as long as stacked wilds show up on the reels and occupy entire reels at a time.

Wild nudge: A third wild feature in this slot will see any stacked wilds which do appear on the screen gently nudged towards the centre. This only happens during the wild re-spin feature, and may just prove to be effective enough to give you a shot of landing another re-spin.

Maximum payouts

Wild symbols also happen to be the best paying symbols in the slot. This really does make Spectra all about the wild symbols. If you can land 5 wilds on any active payline, then you could win as much as 2,000 coins in total.

Of course, the amount you can win with this non-progressive jackpot really does depend on how much you wager in the first place. The more you have wagered, the more you can win, up to 2,000 coins in total.

Summary

Any online slot player who loves their wilds is going to fall head over heels with what Spectra has to offer them. Spectra is very much a slot that offers you wilds galore. The game relies on wilds to trigger bonuses, and pretty much everything else.

Keep in mind that by removing scatters, and have wilds do the lot, Thunderkick have ensured that you stand a greater chance of winning. Throw in the fact that you’re getting a really good deal on the payline/wager ratio in this slot, and it is a no-brainer.

Most players should give Spectra a run for its money now that it has been released to the casino world.
