Play’n GO, a famous online casino software developer, has announced an electrifying experience in Sparky & Shortz Hidden Joules. This game sees the company’s lovable robots make a grand comeback after entertaining players in the first instalment, Sparky & Shortz.
In the latest title, the oddball robots from Play’n GO embark on a brand-new and exhilarating journey to try to save another planet. Players are tasked with helping these hard-working droids to conserve endangered species and gather as many priceless resources as they can.
The game will reward your efforts after matching 7+ symbols on the 7×7 gameboard. The coloured stones are the low-value symbols, whereas the alien creatures represent the top-paying icons. Players can win up to 250x the stake if they manage to match 25+ of these symbols on the reels.
As you continue matching symbols and receiving payouts, the gaming grid will cascade, with each winning combination leaving the play area. As a result, the Boost Meter next to the reels will continuously fill up, raising the Win Multiplier’s value. This increases the chance for players to score some big wins during the base game.
In addition to unlocking the Win Multipliers after filling up the Boost Meter, gamers can activate the four Feature Wilds. Obtaining these symbols is relatively straightforward, as you only need to land a winning combination with a Wild symbol.
As the random Wilds join the game board, the Feature Wilds can help players land Mega symbols on the grid. Sparky will activate and transform into Wild Sparky, a 2×2 Wild Symbol, before jumping into the grid if players have four charges by gathering four Feature Wilds.
Gamers who love free spin rounds may be a little disappointed here as Play’n GO opted against including bonus spins in this game. Instead, there is a plethora of wild symbols and multipliers that can team up to boost your chances of winning the 6,000x top payout.
If you enjoyed playing Sparky & Shortz and other fantastic sci-fi slots from the game developer, then this title will undoubtedly leave you asking for more. It returns you to the expansive universe for a new cosmological adventure.
But tread carefully because the high volatility might sabotage your mission of racking up wins. Thankfully, the 96.20% theoretical RTP (return to player) is above average.
Commenting on this new slot, Play’n GO’s Head of Game Retention, George Olekszy, said: “At Play’n GO, many of us are huge lovers of the sci-fi genre, and creating games set on distant planets or among the stars themselves is a real treat for our team. Knowing that many of our fans also share this love of the great beyond and enjoy delving into these games spurs us on to create some thrilling adventures.”
He added: “Sparky & Shortz Hidden Joules brings players back into the company of these charming robots and ramps up the voltage with some exciting Feature Wilds. As players watch the grid cascade and create winning combinations the thrills will keep on coming, making for an electrifying experience!”
