Brute soon returns to the reels in NetEnt’s Space Wars 2 Powerpoints™ slot
While we are patiently waiting for the Funk Master™ slot to appear at the NetEnt Casinos in three days, on May 25th, we can also start looking forward to a new NetEnt slot that introduces the concept of Powerpoints™. The sequel to Space Wars™ was already announced by Evolution earlier this year, and now we have a date as well. On the 30th of June, Brutus and his extraterrestrial friends return to the reels in the Space Wars 2 Powerpoints™ slot. Are you ready to earn points for even more slot excitement?
The introduction of Powerpoints™!
About three months ago, Evolution Group’s Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter gave a first impression of what to expect from the Space Wars 2 Powerpoints™ slot. He knows how to spread his enthusiasm for the video slots and the same goes for the Space Wars 2 Powerpoints™ slot.
If you start the YouTube video above en you jump to 40:22, you end up at the start of the Space Wars 2 Powerpoints™ slot announcement. It’s then that you see the first footage of what to expect from this upcoming NetEnt slot.
You also hear Todd explain that NetEnt had the desire to introduce Powerpoints™. Simply because almost all good things in life come with points. It then decided that a sequel to an existing slot would be the perfect moment to introduce the Powerpoints™. Space Wars 2™ has the honour to introduce the new slot concept which means we see Brutus and his extraterrestrial friends back on the reels.
The Aliens make a return in the Space Wars 2 Powerpoints™ slot. They’re still wreaking havoc across space – fighting for that legendary space crystal. And you thought humans were bad!
Everybody understands the concept of points. You see them in video games, in social casino, or basically everywhere you go. You can’t even do a workout any more without earning points. So why not introducing the concept to the NetEnt slots?
How do Powerpoints™ work?
So in Space wars 2 Powerpoints™, when you get a win, you get points. And those points bring along a meter. At different stages, you get different cash prizes. Or Free Spins, or more Free Spins. NetEnt wants to introduce this language of points.
Todd believes it’s really cool, and I can see what he means. It’s exactly like he explains. The fun of getting right to the edge of getting a win, and then you don’t. Or you just get over the edge. It sort of puts you in a different mental state.
Every time you get a winning combination, crazy things can happen! The bigger the win, the more advanced of a Wild feature you unlock. With, of course, Free Spins available where the big money is.
With each spin in the Space Wars 2 Powerpoints™ slot, it’s time to save some Powerpoints™. The more winning combinations, whether or not combined with slot features, drives up your wins and therefore, the number of Powerpoints™.
The main objective is to fill up the meter by gathering Powerpoints™ through wins. As you fill up the meter, the meter moves up to increase your Win Multiplier. 1000 or more Powerpoints™ in the main game activates the Free Spins feature.
Space Wars 2 Powerpoints™ slot gameplay
Instead of the standard 5×3 reels layout, or the 5×4 layout in Space Wars™, this sequel offers 6×6 with the Cluster Pays™ mechanism responsible for the winning combinations. Winning clusters of symbols disappear, making way for more symbols and possibly more wins!
As often, this Cluster Pays mechanic comes together with Avalanche feature. It not only makes symbols fall into position, but it also causes a winning combination to start an Avalanche in which all symbols in a cluster disappear, leaving space for another Avalanche of symbols.
Meanwhile, a spin can activate a whole range of video slot features, combined or not. They will blast symbols to smithereens to drive up your wins and with that the number of Powerpoints™.
The features available are Wild symbols, Multiplier Wild symbols, the Column Blaster and Row Blaster features, the Zapper feature, the Bomb feature, 3 Combo features, and Free Spins with expanding reels.
