The wombat says: The Spin Lab – weird name for slot, right? Wrong! The game is actually set in a chemistry lab, AND you can personalise the Free Spins round into whichever ever potent mix of Wilds, Multipliers and Extra Spins that you fancy. See? It all makes sense once you’re in the know… But will this slot be an explosive success? Let’s spin the reels and find out!
Look and Feel
NextGen aren’t usually known for their impressive game design, but they’ve done a great job here- this leaves more traditional games like the Lolly Land slot in its dust! 3D graphics are the main components while neon glowing electrical circuits form the back drop of what looks like a futuristic science laboratory. Overall it’s cross between Star Trek and Tron- we haven’t had this much fun since we played the Fortunes of Sparta slot– but that’s a completely different kettle of fish.
The Spin Lab is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 25 pay-lines. Your symbols on the reels are made up of lots of sciency and chemistry stuff and include; a DNA strand, some kind of electrical circuit cube, an atom, a molecule as your high paying symbols. I jest, of course. I did get a first at Cambridge in molecular biology at Marsupial College. Anyway, the long and short of it is that this game looks as tasty as the Phantom of the Opera slot but it’s more chemically!
The usual playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K & A make up the low value icons in the game.
The Wild symbol in the slot is the multi-coloured chemical reaction thingy and it will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels, except for the Scatters, to increase your chances of making winning combos.
Spin Lab ‘Make Your Own’ Bonus
Land or 3x more of the glittering orb Scatter symbols and you’ll set off the Spin Lab Bonus, which means it’s 5 Free Spins for you. OK, that does sound a bit on the mean side, BUT don’t forget here you’re given the chance to build your own bonus feature! There are three rows shown and you must choose one feature from each:
Symbols Options – The pink icons are: Normal Symbols, Symbols Stacked, and Symbol Prizes features.
– Standard Symbols is where all symbols become either the cube, the molecule, atom, or DNA symbols.
– Symbols Stacked is where one of the cubes, molecules, atoms, or DNA symbols is chosen to land Stacked.
– Symbol Prizes is where one of the cube, molecule, atom, or DNA symbols as a prize symbol, and every time it appears on the reels you win a prize.
The blue icons are: Wilds Stacked, Extra Wilds, and Wild Multipliers and are pretty self explanatory!
The third and final features to choose from are green icons: All Wins Multiplier, Pays Both Ways, and Extra 5 Free Games features.
The Spin Lab is a nice looking slot and we love the innovative customisable bonus features! But which combo is best? We’re not sure. This wombat had some luck with wild multipliers, wins with a x2 multiplier and the stacked symbols. Take a look at your history to see which combinations did best for you – it’s a nice touch. Grab your lab coat and give it a go, we think you’ll like it.
