The Spin Lab slot machine is wonderfully unique as NextGen give you the chance design your own bonus games to maximise your chances of winning.
On first opening The Spin Lab slot you are met with a Tron like circuit board background, periodically glowing, with 25 paylines and 5×3 slot symbols.
The theme itself is that of a futuristic DNA lab, with atoms, molecules string of DNA, random green cubes and the popular A – 9 symbols. It’s far more impressive than it sounds.
All of these are tied together with the brightly multicoloured wild and silver ball scatter, which are the main draw of this mobile and online casino game.
It’s certainly a very unique theme that has no predecessor. The closest would be something like NetEnt’s Evolution slot, but only because it has that ‘created by a mad scientist’ feel about it.
We have to say after spinning for over 500 spins we never really got over 2x to 3x our bet back in the base game.
On occasion we managed to get about 6x but that’s as high as the wins got. Not the most thrilling of spins.
If you are after some big base game winning combos then you are better off looking at something like Titan Storm by NextGen.
However, stick around if you have patience and the budget to spin at a minimum of 0.40 per spin, for at least 50 to 100 spins.
You’ll be rewarded with the chance to concoct your own free spin games up to a possible 27 different combinations.
This is where this NextGen video slot gets interesting. The Spin Lab slot bonus games are won by finding three or more of the silver ball scatter symbols across the five reels.
Do this and you are taken to a screen where you can select various ways for the symbols to be displayed (ie. stacked, or more of one kind), what types of wilds you have (with multipliers or extras), and how the slot pays out (paying both ways, more free spins etc…).
You get three rows of three, where you can select one from each to provide you with a recipe for some big wins.
Though these can be tempestuous, we’ve got over 80x your bet to some miserable 5x your bet wins. So a little experience is necessary when playing the Spin Lab slot.
Find the right mix and match, and you can be walking away very happy… or at least topping your casino balance back up till the next time you get to create your free spins concoction.
Which combination is best? Who knows. We’ve had some good luck with wild multipliers, wins coming with a x2 multiplier and stacked symbols.
What’s great is that you can take a look at your history to see which combinations have worked the best in the past for ideas on how to tweak and change your choices.
If you are a fan of casino games that are a little bit different then this futuristic style might just be for you.
Available to play as The Spin Lab mobile slot on iPhone, iPad and Android, there’s always going to be a way you can give it a go either for free or real cash.
For us though we’d prefer something like Foxin Wins Again or Miss Midas, where the action is a little more constant and you still have a chance at some decent wins throughout the base and bonus games.
However, The Spin Lab has a decent RTP of 95.7 – 95.9%, which might seem low as the base game wins aren’t much to shout about, but that’s because all the big wins comes when you head to the free spins.
Because if you hit the right combination of free spins multipliers and symbols, then you could find yourself playing for longer than expected as you laugh maniacally like a crazy doctor finding a breakthrough in edge science.
