Upcoming Space Wars 2™ slot will introduce Powerpoints™
Space-themed, the upcoming Space Wars 2™ slot is a welcome addition to the wide range of NetEnt slots. NetEnt used to have a wider range of space-themed slots, but we saw Aliens™ and Alien Robots™ disappearing from the NetEnt stage. What better way to expand its space section, other than with a slot theme that already proved to be successful. In two weeks, we see Brute and his friends (known from the Space Wars™ slot) back on the reels in the Space Wars 2™ slot. It promises to be another exciting launch with the newest space addition introducing PowerPoints™!
The Aliens make a return in the Space Wars 2™ slot. They’re still wreaking havoc across space – fighting for that legendary space crystal. And you thought humans were bad!
The introduction of Powerpoints™!
On the 30th of June, players will be reunited with Brutus and friends in the Space Wars 2™ slot. If you watch the above video, you see Evolution Group’s Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter giving a first impression of what to expect from the Space Wars 2™ slot.
The sequel to the Space Wars™ slot doesn’t turn back to the standard bet lines. Instead, it offers a 6×6 grid with clusters responsible for the payouts. When three or more of the same symbols appear in a row horizontally or vertically, it’s a winning combination. Symbols involved in a winning cluster will disappear for symbols above to drop and to make way for new symbols from the top.
A range of high-tech features are available to increase the chance of cluster wins. Each standard symbol that disappears awards Powerpoints™. A combination of slot features can be powerful towards the Powerpoints™ meter for faster rewards.
Watching the YouTube video above, you can jump straight to 40:22 for an explanation of the Space Wars 2™ slot and its Powerpoints™ gameplay. Todd explains that NetEnt had the desire to introduce Powerpoints™. Simply because almost all good things in life come with points.
As soon as the Space Wars 2™ slot appear at the NetEnt Casinos in two weeks time, you can start your Powerpoints™ savings experience. Winning clusters award points added to the Powerpoints™ bar above the game.
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.
At different stages, you get different cash prizes. Or Free Spins, or more Free Spins. NetEnt wants to introduce this language of points. The top part of the stage shows the reward, while the bottom shows the Powerpoints™ needed to get to that stage.
Every time you get a winning combination in the Space Wars 2™ slot, crazy things can happen! It all depends on the winning clusters. The more winning clusters, the more Powerpoints™ awarded. It’s logical that when several features appear, the number of symbols involved increases. At that point, you can earn lots of points for big rewards.
That each winning cluster turns into a Wild helps to create more clusters for more wins and more Powerpoints™. It’s kind of a perfect system for perfect gameplay! Of course, the stage you aim for is the one that activates Free Spins.
Space Wars 2™ slot features
A spin can randomly activate a whole range of 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.
Column/Row Blaster feature
When a row of 4 of the same symbols appears horizontally in the Space Wars 2™ slot, the game awards a Column Blaster symbol. It removes all symbols except Wilds or feature symbols from the corresponding row and adds Powerpoints™ to the meter. When it involves a 4 symbol cluster, the same thing happens but this time, applicable symbols in a reel are removed.
A cluster of 5 to 6 symbols in the main game calls for the Zapper feature. Zappers remove 1 to 4 types of symbols when it involves a 5 symbol cluster win. When 6 symbols are involved, 3 to 4 types of symbols are removed. During Free Spins, Zappers are awarded when a 5, 6, 7, or 8 symbol clusters occur.
Activate a Bomb symbol when hitting a win involving vertical and horizontal matching symbols. The bomb explodes, removing all symbols around them. The more symbols destroyed, the more Powerpoints™ awarded. If the Bomb affects a Multiplier Wild, it multiplies the number of awarded Powerpoints.
A 3 symbol cluster win turns into a Wild symbol in one of the empty positions. During Free Spins, a multiplier of x2, x3, x4, x5, x10, or x25 is added as well. Multiplier Wilds used in a win, multiply the number of Powerpoints™ awarded.
Collect at least 1,000 Powerpoints™ to activate the Free Spins feature. During Free Spins, the 6×6 grid expands to 6×8 with a chance to win additional Free Spins and an amazing Multiplier.
