NetEnt promises new innovative slot features

NetEnt recently admitted it had quite a year for NetEnt. I experienced it more as a quiet year with only a few new slots launched. Despite the quietness, NetEnt informs it has been working overtime this year. Too busy reinventing the wheel with brand new game concepts to enjoy. NetEnt promises new innovative slot features, for the upcoming Silverback Gold™, but also for new slot launches planned for next year.

NetEnt’s innovative slot features

Since its inception in 1996, NetEnt has been a true pioneer in driving the boundaries of online casino gaming. In 25 years of development, NetEnt launched an incredible number of video slots with a variety of innovative slot features.

Among the best innovative slot features, you find the Avalanche feature, for example. It was the Gonzo’s Quest™ slot that introduced the Avalanche feature. I was a fan from the first announcement!

Another great effort from NetEnt to come with innovative slot features is to be found in the Cluster Pays™ feature. This time, it was the Hawaii-themed Aloha! slot that brought the innovative feature to the reels.

But as mentioned before, it has been 25 years and that’s a bunch of innovative slot features to mention. So let me give a proper overview of the best innovative slot feature developed by NetEnt.

Avalanche feature

The Gonzo’s Quest™ slot arrived at the NetEnt Casinos in 2011. It was the first video slot that had a real impression on me. It was that year that I started to appreciate video slots as a game. I always believed 2011 was one of the best video slot years ever!

I can’t imagine a casino industry without the innovative NetEnt slots. They helped the slot revolution to keep moving forward. Until today, the Avalanche feature is still one of the best innovative slot features. Gonzo’s Quest™ was its time far ahead, and so was the Avalanche feature.

What does the avalanche feature do?

The avalanche feature activates when a winning combination occurs. When you form a winning combination, symbols explode, to be replaced by new falling symbols. This is called an avalanche.

Each avalanche also increases the multiplier by one. This win multiplier increases with each successive avalanche. Up to a maximum of x5 in the main game and x15 during Free Spins. A no-win spin resets the multiplier.

An avalanche can be compared with a series of domino stones. You hit the first stone and a series of stones get down. Until you get that one partypooper, the domino stone that refuses to go down.

The successful domino stones are the avalanches, but the domino stone stuck is the no-win spin. In combination with Gonzo as the best slot character ever, millions of players already enjoyed the Gonzo’s Quest™ slot and its Avalanche feature.

NetEnt slots that offer the Avalanche feature are:

Gonzo’s Quest™
Pyramid™
Finn and the Swirly Spin™
Elements™
Fruit Case™
Asgardian Stones™
Imperial Riches™

Cluster Pays feature

This feature is a slot mechanic like the Avalanche feature is. It rules the entire game. This time all bet lines are gone, taken over by cluster wins.

This means the game forms clusters of the same symbol on the reels. A cluster of at least 9 symbols is needed to win.

Cluster Pays slots don’t offer the standard 5×3 reels. Just in order to provide more reels and rows. With it comes more symbols to create the clusters.

NetEnt slots that offer the Cluster pays feature are:

Aloha! Cluster Pays™
Shangri-La: Cluster Pays™
Gonzo’s Gold™
