Quickspin have produced a number of slot games over the years that have provided a throwback feeling and a warm nostalgic vibe and it seems the developers will not stop with a theme that has proved to be incredibly successful.
One of their latest retro games comes in the form of the Second Strike slot game, which will take players back through time as they provide a unique take on a classic fruit machine game.
A classic format in regards to the playing grid exists, as our Second Strike game review found that there are five reels and three rows available for symbols to appear. In addition, there are a total of 10 fixed paylines, which further adds to the traditional vibes this game provides.
Bets can be placed from a wide range of values, with R0.10 being the lowest, whereas R100 is also able to be placed on each spin for those looking to try and win the biggest prizes available.
Players are able to see the reels do their work automatically via the ‘Autoplay’ function available on the game panel across the bottom of the screen. A number of uninterrupted spins can take place, giving players some control over the feature. There is also an option to quicken the rate in which the reels turn, thus perhaps getting more spins completed in a limited time period.
Whilst testing out the game for our review – something players can also do by playing the Second Strike Free Play version above – we noticed that the paytable features all the symbols that would be expected in an original fruit machine slot game.
The Cherries, plums, grapes and the watermelons all represent the low-value icons and appear frequently, whereas the bells, stars, sevens and diamonds all provide bigger rewards when they appear on the reels and are part of a winning combination on one of the 10 paylines.
One of the Second Strike bonus features includes the introduction of a Wild symbol. This icon is golden and has the ability to bring gold to those players who land it! It will replace any of the regular paytable icons to help form winning combinations when it falls on the reels in any spin.
The game also features a Second Strike feature and this is activated when a winning spin happens. Players should notice that the playing grid features a border around the edge. After each winning spin, this will light up and see a light start spinning around it. If it lands on the winning symbols, more of these will be added to the main reels in random positions to try and maximise the prize that had already been won! This feature can continue to happen until no more wins are achievable.
RTP (return to player)
Second Strike slot game has a return to player (RTP) rate of 96.26%, which can be considered a rather average rate for a Quickspin game. Nonetheless, it is still one worthy of playing as the rewards can be rather lucrative, especially when the Second Strike feature comes into play.
