Sparks is a great slot by Net Entertainment that does not have a bonus game, jackpot or free spins. The slot does offer the option of playing with two-directional pay lines, something which you can change at almost any time -just not during a spin. All in all, it’s the potential two-directionality of the pay lines and the special feature that makes this slot so interesting.
How to play Sparks?
You can start playing Sparks almost immediately after having opened it as you cannot alter the number of active pay lines. Of course, you can configure your bet, which you can do at the bottom of the slot. Additionally, on this slot, you can also choose to play with two-directional pay lines. If you don’t activate this, wins only go from the left to the right.
However, if you do activate the two-directionality, wins are computed both from the left to the right and from the right to the left, something which is particularly interesting in combination with the special feature. The slot has two different wild symbols, one of which can only substitute for any other symbol, and the other is a special wild that will always lead to a win, no matter what. Don’t worry about scatters or bonus symbols; this slot does not have those.
Features involving the wilds on Sparks
Sparks makes use of two wild symbols that can land on the second and fourth reel, and when they do, they will expand up, down or both up and down. And even though the normal expanding wild is a nice feature, it isn’t the real money-maker. Rather, the special wild, which clones symbols, is. The cloning works as follows: the symbols on the one side of the wild symbol will be cloned and projected onto the other side of the wild symbol. Since the wilds only land on the second and fourth reel, when you have two-directional pay lines, this always leads to a win! With this special wild, you can attain the maximum potential win of 80,000 coins, which is a decent prize for a slot!
Pay lines on Sparks
Sparks has a total of 20 pay lines fitted on its playing grid and you cannot alter the number of active ones. Also, the slot isn’t equipped with a jackpot. This means that you will have to make do with the maximum potential win of 8o,000 coins. On the one hand, it is a bit of a shame that the game doesn’t have a very large maximum potential win. On the other hand, a slot like this also doesn’t really need a huge potential win. It is a tranquil slot that doesn’t have many features and complicated extras, and with that, NetEnt seems to have sought to duplicate the success of Starburst. It is too early to tell whether Sparks will manage to become as popular as Starburst, but it definitely already is a well-received game.
