Demolition Squad™ (EOL)
This game is End of Life but feel free to read about it here
If you think comics are childish and not for grown-ups, you are very wrong. With Demolition Squad™, NetEnt proves that anime are for all ages (in a NetEnt Casino 18 years and over, of course).
It’s not for nothing NetEnt uses the comic and anime style frequently for the design of their video slots. Actually, it’s some of their most played video slots that are inspired by comics. Take Jack Hammer™ and Jack Hammer 2™, both based on a comic involving Dick Tracy. It’s a famous detective and main character from a comic published for the first time in 1931.
While in Europe we call these stories comics, in Japan they call these same comics manga or anime. They sell in all type of genres including action-adventure, romance, historical drama, comedy, science fiction, and fantasy.
Also In Japan, people of all ages read manga and over the years manga also gained a significant worldwide audience. Understandable that NetEnt saw manga as an inspiration for Demolition Squad™ (EOL) and Koi Princess™.
Manga themed video slot
Surrounded by a construction building site, you follow the daily antics of a wrecking crew bulldozing the five reels. This results in some entertaining results while the music keeps you awake.
Between the diggers and scaffolding, you’ll find the animated welder, the labourer, the purple-haired sledgehammer girl, the crane operator and a robot guard keeping an eye on the demolition squad.
One of the most recognizable details of a Netent video slot is the control panel. Sometimes NetEnt involves this spin button in the design. That’s probably the reason NetEnt mixed the control panel into the manga theme.
Another detail you must notice is the background soundtrack. It reverberates through the speakers as soon as you enter the game. It matches the demolition theme perfectly, although if a bit too much, you find the volume button in the bottom menu.
Maybe the destruction happening on the reels, or the manga theme isn’t your cup of tea, if you are looking for a high roller game or a video slot packed with extra features, you will definitely like Demolition Squad™.
Besides the many innovative features and a maximum of 50 Free Spins! to win, the Demolition Squad™ video slot also offers an amazing amount of 40 bet lines and a maximum bet of 200.00, in any currency available at the Netent Casino you choose to play.
When you activate all 40 bet lines, which is highly recommended, the minimum bet is 0.40. Ten levels give you the opportunity to increase your chance of winnings while the six different coin values will increase your winnings.
Choose to play the highest level combined with the maximum coin value of 0.50 and you’ll play with a bet of 200.00, the highest amount possible and perfect for high rollers.
Demolition Squad™ features
One of the explosive new features Demolition Squad™ offers is the Demolition Wild. You activate the feature with a pair of Wilds that appear on reels 2 and 4. Both Wild symbols explode into a demolition Wild. The game fills up the gap with a third Demolition Wild.
This means the symbol between the two Demolition Wilds, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally transform into another Demolition Wild. All other Wilds appearing on reel 2,3 and 4 will stay the same, but both Wild features substitute for all other symbols, except Scatter symbols.
I’m already impressed by the winnings that the innovative Wild feature causes in Demolition Squad™. But even more by the Free Spins feature this well-designed video slot offers.
Activate Free Spins with three or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the five reels. The 3, 4 or 5 Scatters activate respectively 10, 20 or an amazing 50 Free Spins.
If you are lucky enough to get five Scatters, you get the 50 Free Spins. It’s one of the highest amounts of Free Spins you can win in a NetEnt video slot. Wild Turkeys™ and EggOMatic™ also offer high amounts of Free Spins.
Once the Free Spins feature starts, one of the Demolition Squad™ characters will be clung to the wrecking ball which flies across the reels to tell you how many Free Spins you have left.
And if you are not amazed yet, though impossible if you ask me, all wins from Free Spins are also multiplied by three. And if you’ve picked yourself up from the floor in time after you’ve seen your balance rising as fast as light goes, you’ll get a short manga animation for free as well.
Although this Netent video slot is always under construction, you can’t really say the same about the cutting-edge graphics, the music and the amazing features.
And maybe the manga theme isn’t your first choice, once you start playing Demolition Squad™, whether you like manga or not, you will be amazed by another magnificent creation offered by one of the largest software developers in the online casino industry.
