Evolution is an online video slot game from casino software provider Net Entertainment. The game is available for both free and real money play and features 5 reels and 25 paylines in a typical slot game style that has been innovatively designed to immerse players into a mysterious underwater world in which dreamlike life forms are constantly changing and evolving.
The game is based on the theory of evolution, and creates its own brand of evolution by depicting primitive single-celled organisms that evolve to more advanced life forms, which are shown as fantastic and surreal creatures that are based, like the game itself, in an eerie underwater setting.
The Look and Feel of Evolution
Evolution is a highly detailed and lifelike slot game in which every aspect is carefully designed and animated to give a realistic feel. The design of the pay table is neat and simplistic, which allows players to focus on the imaginative characters that serve as the symbols in the game. These unique animals combine physical aspects of many different well-known creatures to create surreal life forms that evolve as players match winning combinations on the reels.
Evolution online slots also features a tranquil soundtrack and interesting sound effects like the ping of a submarine to add to the ethereal subaquatic feel of the game.
Unique Reel Symbols
The reel symbols in Evolution include a number of surreal creatures, as well as a wild game symbol, a scatter symbol and the higher value playing card symbols from 10 to Ace. Each unusual creature in Evolution also has a humorous name that is reminiscent of biological Latin terms, including such characters as Basilisk Pluma, Albus Slugus and Draconius Rex, who is also the game’s jackpot payout symbol.
Evolution’s wild symbol is the bubble symbol, on which the word ‘wild’ is written. The wild bubble symbol can substitute all other game symbols except for the free spins scatter symbol, helping to create more winning combinations during the game.
Scatter Symbol and Free Spins Feature
The ‘free spins’ symbol is Evolution’s scatter symbol. Players must land at least 3 of these symbols on the reels to activate the free spins bonus feature. Players who land 3 scatter symbols will be awarded 10 free spins, players who land 4 scatters will receive 15 free spins and players who land 5 free spins scatter symbols will be awarded 20 free spins.
Once the free spins feature begins, players will be transported to a richly diverse underwater biome in which seaweeds and underwater plants flourish.
During the feature, players must drop a winning combination to activate the Evolution feature. In the Evolution feature, any creature symbols who are involved in a winning combination will evolve into a more advanced life form, adding authenticity and interest to the theme of the game and giving players the chance to claim even bigger payouts as they play.
Additionally, once the bonus feature is over, players will be transported back to the deep sea world of the base game by an animated meteor impact.
