It was on the 23rd of July 2015 one of the most energy-filled video slots was launched by NetEnt and with mobile gaming becoming more and more popular, a Touch® version of the Sparks™ slot was launched the exact same day. This Touch® version gives you the opportunity to play the video slot wherever and whenever, no matter if using a tablet, iPhone, Android phone or Windows Phone. NetEnt Touch® makes mobile gaming accessible any time, anywhere without losing in quality, speed or gameplay as every single mobile game developed by NetEnt boasts outstanding graphics, sounds and features, to ensure the game works seamlessly on all mobile devices.
Sparks Touch® belongs to the first generation of mobile games developed entirely in HTML5 of which we know by know it brings major opportunities in development of mobile casino games. Ever since mobile gaming got off the ground in 2011, NetEnt can be called a true pioneer offering the best quality to the mobile casinos. Gonzo’s Quest™ was the first video slot turned into a Touch® game and those who try this mobile casino game won’t notice any difference compared to its desktop version. NetEnt works hard to innovate and push the technological boundaries on a daily basis and every single Touch® game is the proof of that. As a result NetEnt received numerous honours at iGaming award shows such as the EGR B2B Awards.
It was halfway 2015 Sparks Touch® found its way to the mobile casinos and with that another brilliant NetEnt slot became available to players. It was one month after Neon Staxx Touch® was launched, both bringing impressive neon colours responsible for an explosion of colours. While its design is a treat for the eye, Sparks Touch® also offers innovative video slot features including a Win One Way mode and a Win Both Ways mode, as well as Wild substitutions and an Expanding Cloning Wild. Besides innovative slot features and the sizzling neon-themed graphics, Sparks Touch® also brings mesmerizing serene sounds into the game. All together you can be sure you have found yourself a complete NetEnt gaming experience guaranteeing an exciting and electric time on the reels.

It was Twin Spin Touch® that introduced cloned reels with each and every spin starting with at least two adjacent twin reels. Sparks Touch® is brings you a similar slot feature with a lot of cloning going on. Sparks Touch® introduces the Expanding Cloning Wild feature you don’t want to miss out on, especially in combination with the Win Both Ways mode.
Win Both Ways feature
Before I am going to tell you all about the Expanding Cloning Wild feature, I would like to explain the two game modes available in Sparks Touch®. An opening screen is going to give you the opportunity to choose between the Win One Way mode and the Win Both Ways mode. The first mode isn’t that special as the major part of the video slots is available in this mode only with winnings made from left to right. The second mode has been available in only a few NetEnt slots and is for sure responsible for a lot of extra winning combination simply because winning combination will be created from left to right as well as from right to left. Considering the fact that your bet stays the same when switching to the Win Both Ways mode, I definitely recommend to play Sparks Touch® in this mode as more winning combinations will be created for sure.
Sparks Touch® Wild features
Even though there’s no bonus round available or Free Spins, I am sure you will have a great time on the reels with the two Wild features. The regular Wild can appear anywhere on the reels while the Expanding Cloning Wild will appear on the reels 2 and 4 only. Both will substitute for any other symbol except for the other Wild symbol of course. The regular Wild symbols shows a cold theme, while reels start burning when the Expanding Cloning Wild appears. The reason why this feature appears on the reels 2 and 4 only is because it needs some space to clone the reels on the left and Wild after its expansion. When activated, the Expanding Cloning Wild has the ability to expand up and down and even in both directions. Done expanding this innovative Wild feature will clone adjacent symbols from the reels on its left onto the reels to its right. When an Expanding Cloning Wild appears on reel 2 and reel 4 in just one spin, there will be a lot of cloning going on on the reels with probably a big win as the result.
This colourful mobile slot game reminds me of Starburst Touch® which was also launched with only a Both Way Win feature and an Expanding Wild. There was no cloning function involved though, but this NetEnt slot did become the most popular video slot around anyway, often used for free spins promotions by the many NetEnt Casinos. It was right after the launch of the Starburst™ slot reviewers were not sure if players were interested in a game offering only a few slot features, but Starburst™ certainly proved that less is more, the reason I believe Sparks Touch® can become just as popular.
