Focus on Sparks
Sparks is a nod to slot machines of yesteryear, with the classic five-reel, three-row set-up and a simple backdrop of electric blue. The emphasis of this game is very much on the excitement of watching the reels spin, rather than zany animations and special features.
That said, there’s still plenty going on, with Win Both Ways letting you pick up wins from left to right and vice versa with every turn of the reels.
Incredibly, there are 80 different bet combinations in Sparks, with coin values and bet levels customizable prior to every spin.
Firstly, pick your bet level from 1-10 and then decide upon your coin value – there are denominations between 0.01 and 2.00 available.
Gameplay of Sparks
When you fire up Sparks you’ll notice that the action is a little unusual – you can choose between traditional One Way Pays, where matching symbols are counted from left-to-right, or alternatively select the Both Ways Pays option. As you might have guessed, that means that you can win in either direction.
Otherwise, the gameplay of Sparks is as you would expect from a key title in the NetEnt slots collection.
Winning Symbols on Sparks
The main game symbols in Sparks are colored bursts of light, with each of these punchy icons paying out when you match three or more on your reels. On an ascending scale, the blue spark is the smallest paying symbol and the bright orange spark is the top – 200 coins are available when you match five of these.
There is a wild symbol, and as is the case in many NetEnt games this substitutes for all other game symbols to create winning combos. And that’s not all – in Sparks, the wild pays out an instant win of anything from 5 to 200 coins as well.
Bonus & Free Spins
There is no free spins feature in Sparks; however, that loss is made up for by the Cloning Wild. This symbol can appear on reels two and four, and will substitute for all other symbols – they also have the rather happy knack of expanding in all directions to ensure that only the biggest payout is earned.
