Evolution Online Video Slot
Evolution is a popular online video slot game produced by Net Entertainment. The theme of this game is based on Darwin’s theory of evolution. In the game, players will encounter a host of strange and wonderful creatures that could have evolved given the right circumstances. The reels themselves are set underwater in the great ocean where life began. The symbols float gently in the ocean current with large fish swimming ominously in the background. The graphics and animation are top-class and combined with the eerie background music and sound effects, all work together to create a truly immersive slot experience.
5 Reel Slot with an Evolutionary Theme
The slot machine in Evolution is based on the classic NetEnt setup of 5 spinning reels with 25 paylines. On the reels, players will find a number of strange creatures from mammals to reptiles to single cell organisms. The highest paying symbols include the Draconius Rex, the Basilisk pluma, the Basilisk hairicus, Bestia dentum and Albus slugus. The lower paying symbols include the standard high card symbols in the form of single cell organisms. These include Crustacio Spingum (Ace), Jellocus squidae (King), Jellocus finnum (Queen), Blobulus astrum (Jack) and Primo blobulus (Ten).
In addition to the basic slot game, the Evolution video slot also includes a number of bonus features in the form of a wild symbol, free spins and a bonus game. The highest paying symbol if the game is actually Draconius Rex, the little squirrel like animal. Landing 5 of these symbols across the reels will pay out a total of 500x the total bet stake. The symbol with the word “wild” can be used as the games wild symbol. This means that it can be used to substitute for all of the other standard game symbols in order to create a winning combination on the reels. The wild symbol cannot substitute for the free spin symbol though and it only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Free Spin Bonus Round
The free spins symbol in Evolution is equally as self-explanatory. This is simply the opaque floating symbol with the words “free spin” written across the front. Landing 3 or more free spin symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the free spin bonus round. The more symbols that trigger the round, the more free spins are awarded overall. Here, 3 symbols awards 10 free spins, 4 symbols awards 15 free spins and all 5 free spin symbols across the reels awards the maximum of 20 free spins.
Evolving Symbols for more Wins
A winning combination in the free spin round triggers the Evolution feature. This is a bonus feature that can increase the winning potential of any line. As soon as players land a winning combination in the free spin round, the feature will kick in. All of the symbols involved in the line win will start to evolve into the next evolutionary symbol. This means that the symbol itself will change into a different symbol which opens up more opportunities to form a winning combination. This feature stays active for the duration of the free spins round.
