If you ever wondered what a classic Las Vegas casino might look like in the age of high-tech gadgetry Twin Spin, released in 2013 from Net Entertainment, might be your answer.
This is a five-reel slot and features all the Casino Hall of Fame symbols – 9, 10, J, Q, K and A and a cherry, a bell, a Bar, a red seven, and a diamond. But that’s where the traditionalists will check out. There are no real paylines, more like “ways to win.” And there are 243 of them when you match symbols on adjacent reels from the left rail. Not only are there no paylines, there are no free spins, no bonus rounds, and no games to play.
Twin Spin is funky fun from the days of Las Vegas casinos before anyone ever thought of the words “theme” and “park.” Put on your bellbottoms and Ray-Bans and check out the Strip. If there is too much cool in that soundtrack for your square self to handle you can shut it down and just play Twin Spin. Or, more accurately Twin $pin, the “S” stands for money. The graphics are big and bold and translucent.
There is a red-and-gold Wild that substitutes for other symbols on Reels 2, 3, 4 or 5. Players can wager on any of ten levels in Twin Spin with a return of 135,000X up to 270,000 coins.
The only feature is, if you haven’t guessed it by now, the twin spins and they are in force on every play. Each play commences with any two adjacent reels locked arm-in-arm with identical symbols. The dynamic reel synchronising can take place on any pair and they click to a halt to possibly form some of those 243 ways to win.
Sometimes play speeds up and three, four, and – dare to dream it – all five reels are spinning in matched-symbol unison. That is when you cash out with, as Twin Spin tells you, a Super Mega Win. Verbiage torn right from the Vegas handbook applied to sophisticated new-age video-slot technology.
