Twin Spin Deluxe™ slot first new NetEnt game of 2018
In 2013, NetEnt brought some old-style Las Vegas excitement to the NetEnt Casinos with the launch of the Twin Spin™ slot. The game gained huge popularity across multiple online casinos for several reasons and now the successor of this game has been officially announced by NetEnt. Twin Spin Deluxe™, already exclusively available at Unibet, will become available at the NetEnt Casinos on the 10th of January.
Twin Spin™ vs Twin Spin Deluxe™
While both games share the same old-style Las Vegas excitement, there can be found many differences between the two NetEnt slots. Pretty obvious is the layout of the Twin Spin Deluxe™ slot which differs from a standard video slot like Twin Spin™. This simply means that the layout of the upcoming NetEnt slot won’t be the standard 5×3. Instead, NetEnt added two rows and an extra reel as well. Therefore, you can expect a 6×5 layout with a total of 30 symbols available instead of the standard 15.
That’s just the beginning since the 243 Ways to Win, as seen in the traditional version of Twin Spin™, have been replaced. In the Twin Spin Deluxe™ slot, clusters will be responsible for the wins. It’s the third NetEnt slot enriched with the Cluster Pays™ feature and this new game will be in good company with Aloha!: Cluster Pays™ and The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays™.
Enhanced with the Cluster Pays™ function, all clusters of nine or more symbols will award a win. A symbol is part of a cluster if it is horizontally or vertically adjacent to the same symbol. The good news is that with 30 symbols available several clusters can appear and thanks to the Twin Reels you’ll have a bigger chance of creating at least one clusters, especially when all symbols on the Twin Reels are the same.
The Wild available in Twin Spin™ has left the stage and won’t be available in the sequel to the game. This simply means that the Twin Reels is the only reel slot feature available in Twin Spin Deluxe™, but with both games offering a 96.6% payout, this new addition to the NetEnt Casinos should be just as attractive.
I’m sure that the Cluster Pays™ function will make up for the Wild missing with both games being equally attractive. Except, the Twin Spin™ slot has been so popular ever since its launch in 2013, it will be a tough job for Twin Spin Deluxe™ to become just as popular. The future will tell but first, we have to until the official launch on the 10th of January 2018.
Twin Spin Deluxe™ gameplay and slot features
Featuring the Twin Reels in the company of the Cluster Pays™ mechanic, I do believe that the Twin Spin Deluxe™ slot is an exciting sequel to the Twin Spin™ slot. You’ll be treated another smooth and classic design while the unique reel synchronising and linking feature to ensure you don’t have to travel all the way to Las Vegas for some Vegas entertainment.
As mentioned before, there will only be one official slot feature combined with the Cluster Pays™ function. This combination can be responsible for a lot of spectacle on the reels. No spectacle as seen in the recently launched Planet of the Apes™ slot, for example, but more of a Las Vegas type of spectacle. A lot of flashy and colourful neon lights will occur during each spin while this 80’s-themed video slot has been enriched with some energizing music from that time.
While the design of both games is comparable, the gameplay from Twin Spin™ and Twin Spin deluxe™ so differ a lot. The Twin Reel is actually all they have in common when it comes to the gameplay with each spin starting with identical, neighbouring twin reels that are linked together and can appear adjacently on any of the 6 reels. During a spin, the twin reels have the ability to expand to become three, four, five or even six linked adjacent reels.
Altogether, I do think Twin Spin Deluxe™ id full of potential but I’m not convinced this new NetEnt slot will become more popular than its predecessor. Never say never and the same goes for the NetEnt Games. Only the future will be able to tell. For those who can’t wait until the 10th of January to play Twin Spin Deluxe™, this game is already exclusively available at Unibet as a free casino, as well as a real money game.
