It was in November 2013 that NetEnt brought some old-style Las Vegas excitement to the NetEnt Casinos with the launch of the Twin Spin™ slot. From the beginning, the Twin Spin™ slot gained huge popularity with all type of players but with the high-rollers in particular. And when a certain video slot is loved by these risky type of players, you know the game has a lot to offer in terms of gameplay and winnings.
A bit more than four years later, the success of Twin Spin™ continues with the launch of its successor, the Twin Spin Deluxe™ slot. Hoping this new game was going to be just as, or even more, successful, NetEnt created a better version of the video slot adding some of the newest innovations such as the Cluster Pays™ mechanic.
The everlasting success of the Twin Spin™ slot is hard to beat, but with the return of the popular Twin Reels in combination with the Cluster Pays™ mechanic, it’s certainly not impossible. Besides this great combination of slot features, NetEnt decided to get rid of the standard 3×5 grid, replacing it with a 6×5 grid without any bet lines available thanks to the clusters.
While some significant changes can be noticed when it comes to the gameplay and slot features, you can still expect the same 80’s style party on the reels thanks to the energizing music and neon lights flashing with every spin.
Twin Spin™ vs Twin Spin Deluxe™
Before I’m going to give you a detailed description of the Twin Spin Deluxe™ slot, you deserve a nice comparison of the two Twin Spin creations. The games were launched four years apart and in terms of technology and innovations at NetEnbt, that’s a long time.
NetEnt is known as a pioneer and its need to innovate is visible within every single game launched. It’s therefore that you can expect some significant differences between the two games, but one aspect can’t be changed, not even after 20 years of innovations. That’s the reason the Twin Reels – without a doubt responsible for the success of the Twin Spin™ slot – will make a comeback in the Twin Spin Deluxe™ slot.
Mentioned earlier as well, it’s the 4 years of innovation that brought a new function to the reels in Twin Spin Deluxe™. It’s an innovation we’ve seen before in the Cluster Pays™ slots Aloha!™ and The Legend of Shangri-La™. Twin Spin Deluxe™ is the third NetEnt slot that has the honour to offer players the Cluster Pays™ mechanic which I’ll I will describe in detail later.
No news either, there’s also quite a difference visible when it comes to the layout of the game with the standard 3×5 grid being replaced by a 6×5 grid in order to improve the Cluster Pays™ functionality in the Twin Spins Deluxe™ slot.
Both Twin Spin slots offer you a 96.6% Return to Player™ and since no bonus games are involved, all winnings will present themselves within the main game although some percentages have been reserved for triplet-twin wins, quadruplet-twin wins and quintuplet-twin wins. I assume this counts for both video slots making them equally attractive to you as a player.
Considering a higher hit frequency and a higher maximum payout per spin (€135.000 compared to €100.000), it seems that the Twin Spin™ slot is still winning, but if it comes to innovation and gameplay, I’m sure Twin Spin Deluxe™ will win your beloved NetEnt slot heart! The choice is yours!
I didn’t really have a good look at the betting options yet, but again some differences are shown. The minimum bet Twin Spin™ is offering is 0.25, but the Twin Spin Deluxe™ slot does think of the less risky type of players as well with a minimum bet of 0.10 available.
The maximum bet of 125.00 in Twin Spin™ didn’t survive the development studio either with a maximum bet of 100.00 available for the players who decide to play the Twin Spin deluxe™ slot. In exchange, another coin value was added in the Deluxe version totaling 7 while both games offer you 10 bet levels
Twin Spin Deluxe™ slot features
It’s obvious that both Twin Spin slots differ from each other, but one feature has been kept exactly the same. It’s what drives the success of Twin Spin™ and what’s successful should never be changed! That’s a law in business and this should be a law in online casino gaming as well. NetEnt understands the formula of success as no other and decided to keep the Twin Reel feature the way it supposed to be: untouched!
That’s why the Twin Spin deluxe™ slot has the right to be just as successful as it’s predecessor. Without a doubt, Twin Spin™ fans will appreciate the Deluxe version, especially with the popular Cluster Pays™ mechanics involved.
The Clusters will be responsible for all winning combinations as no bet lines are available. A symbol is part of a cluster if it is horizontally or vertically adjacent to the same symbol, but only groups of 9 or more symbols can be considered a cluster. There can be several clusters available during a spin and multiple clusters of the same symbol that are not adjacent to each other count as separate clusters paying separately.
With 30 symbols available in the Twin Spin Deluxe™ slot, several clusters can appear and thanks to the Twin Reels you’ll have a bigger chance of creating at least one cluster, especially when all symbols on the Twin Reels are similar.
Twin Reels feature
You’ve heard about it, you’ve probably already enjoyed it, and now again you have the chance to benefit one of the greatest video slot innovations as the Twin Reels feature is without a doubt one of the most innovative slot features developed by NetEnt.
Each spin will start with identical, adjacent twin reels that are linked together. That means there will always be two reels completely identical. During the spin, these twin reels can expand randomly to become triplet, quadruplet or even quintuplet reels. In case the twin reels become quintuplet reels, it means all five reels are identical to each other, the moment you’re definitely are going to have a Vegas moment.
It’s one of the few features Twin Spin™ is offering, but I can guarantee you don’t need much more. Less is more in this case and in combination with the Clusters. This while you enjoy the Las Vegas thrills including flashy and colourful neon lights occurring during each spin and some energizing sounds so familiar for the 80’s. Get ready for an 80’s Vegas-style type of party with the Twin Spin Deluxe™ slot!
