Twin Spin: a classic retro yet very modern theme
The theme of Twin Spin is classic casino gameplay with a touch of modern graphics taking you to outer space.
The background colour is a deep blue, lit with magenta, green and blue coloured laser beams. Yellow twinkling dots that look like stars randomly blink on and off behind the reels, but they are synchronised with various racing lights triggered by winning spins while festive sounding music plays.
You are taken back in time to a Las Vegas brick and mortar casino with vintage playing card symbols like the 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace. These lower-value symbols have the same design in the numbers and letters that look like the bright neon laser lights shown in the game's background.
Five familiar-looking high-value symbols come straight from the Las Vegas reels and start with a couple of bright red cherries.
Next in line is a gold bell, a gold bar, then the number 7 in red, and lastly, the highest value symbol is a huge sparkling diamond. In the background, you can hear 1980s style music playing on a loop, but you can turn it off using the volume control if you don't like it.
The Features of Twin Spin
Twin Spin is a reasonably basic game, so NetEnt didn't build in many special features to mix up the gameplay. It does stand out from the other older slots due to its reels being synchronised, and it does have a Wild symbol that can substitute for all of the other symbols.
Although Twin Spin lacks a real bonus feature, with every spin, at least two and up to five adjacent reels are linked together and feature identical symbols, hence the name Twin Spin.
You can tell which of the five reels are the twins as red lights glow behind them as they first start to roll. While the reels spin, the twins can turn into triplets, quadruplets or possibly quintuplets if all the reels contain identical symbols. As you can guess, this type of synchronisation across the reels has the potential of multiplying your winnings to a considerable degree.
As there are 243 ways to win, getting five identical reels in one spin will mean you get 243 x the five symbol payout.
Enough to get the adrenaline flowing with every spin!
Twin Spin offers you 10 bet levels and coins that include values .01, .02, .05, .10, .20, and .50.
The lowest amount you can bet per spin is .25, with the highest bet being 125.00, which works out well for players with high limits.
Twin Spin: our verdict
Twin Spin is genuinely one of the most original and exciting slots we have ever played. You might get quite a bit of dead spins in a row, but that massive win is always lurking in the background.
Graphically, Twin Spin is a fine mix of retro style symbols and modern animations, and it works phenomenally well.
Netent has set a new standard with Twin Spin: it is original, fast and exciting, all in one.
