When it comes to games that we love, Play’N Go are often behind them. So, it’s of no surprise that their latest slot, Energoonz, has been a huge hit here at Bitcasino towers. Mixing elements from across favourite genres results in a fantastic experience for the player.
Presented over a slightly out of the ordinary 5 x 5 setup, without any particular paylines to speak of. Line up three or more matching symbols to win, which can be done horizontally or vertically. The visuals are striking, introducing a host of colourful characters, well-considered symbols and some innovative bonus features.
Some shockingly cool extras
Set around what looks like active semiconductors, the game has the look and feel of a cartoon substation. One of the top features involves the particularly active conductor over to the right of the reels. This will send an electrical shock onto the reels to electrify symbols within a winning combination.
Over to the left you’ll be able to see all the combinations you made during the most recent win. Winning combinations can also summon the wild symbol, in fact this will be the only way you get to see it, as it won’t appear across the reels any other way.
Features to keep you electrified
Cascading reels is a great feature, when a slot has this function they rarely disappoint. Typically symbols that form a win are swept away and replaced by more symbols from above on the reels. The symbol that sits in the middle will always be transformed into a wild, going a long way towards forming the next winning combination.
Symbols that come down to replace those that are disbanded do run out though, so bear in mind that only those you can already see will come to replace others. Normal spins will resume when you’re unable to make up any more winning lines this way. If you do manage to clear the whole grid, you’ll be looking at winning 1000x your total overall bet.
We all love free spins right? Here we have the word ‘bonus’ hidden beneath a random selection of symbols, if you manage to clear the row above the word you’ll get into the free spins feature.
Ten free spins then follow, this all happens on different set of reels and there’s no cascading going on here. You’ll need to land at least five of one particular symbol to win a prize. Overall, there are ten symbols depicting creatures, as well as a ‘section of conductor’ type symbol, of which getting five will bring further winnings.
Energoonz is essentially quite confusing at first, with a fair bit going on. However, as any seasoned gamer will know, you’ll soon get the know your way around. The soundtrack and visuals are top notch and the gameplay slick - if a little slow at times, surprisingly.
It’s an addictive game that keeps you coming back for more, even though we found the halo can slip at times and end up clearing you out. Play with caution and wit however, and there’s a tidy little killing to be made here.
