Cryptologic have made it a habit of producing some rather great superhero themed video slots. The Flash slot is no different; with another solid performance regarding both theme and graphics this game has upheld the Cryptologic benchmark. The sounds and gameplay all tie in with the theme and the symbols on the reels perpetuate it even further. As far as betting possibilities go, this slot features an impressive 50 pay lines plus a Bonus Bet feature that can add 10 more to the mix. Other bonuses include a Wild and a bonus round that awards free spins. Sounds like a full package deal.
The Fastest Reels around with the Flash
With a theme like the Flash there really is quite a lot to explore and display and the aspects selected for this slot pay nice homage to the character and the comic books. The sound effects are appropriately upbeat, to go along side this fast paced superhero. These sounds also make good work of celebrating a win on the reels. The most notable win effect though is the symbol animations. Here the symbols come alive and during big moments like triggering the Bonus game the antics on the reels are quite great.
As far as symbol specifics go players will find the Flash, obviously, his symbol, and a few of his enemies, including Captain Cold and Grodd the Gorilla. There are also the symbols 10 through Ace, the classic playing card symbols that Cryptologic seem determined must be in the majority of their slots. The symbols again are all well portrayed and designed.
Like wagering in some Neteller pokies, the betting on this slot is quite broad, with an adjustable 50 pay lines and 5 reels. There is also a decent coin size to choose from so spinning here can be for most. This slot also has an autoplay feature that allows for a set amount of automated spins, or until a stopping point.
The Flash Features and Bonus Symbols
As mentioned above this slot has a Bonus Bet feature that turns its 50 pay lines into 60. This means a greater total bet, but also an increased likelihood of winning as well as access to the Flash slot’s bonus round. This can be activated using the button next to the reels.
The Wild symbol of this slot is the Flash himself and can substitute for other symbols on the reels to form winning combinations. If the Bonus Bet feature is enabled then this Wild also awards a 5 times multiplier to the wins it helps create.
The Scatter symbol is represented as the Flash logo and can trigger this slot’s free spins feature, the Rogues Bonus round. If three or more of these Scatters appear anywhere on the reels this bonus game triggers, song as the Bonus Bet feature is enabled.
The Rogues Bonus Round with the Flash
At the beginning of this bonus players are awarded with 12 free spins. They are then given a choice of free spin features in the form of enemies of the Flash. There is Captain Cold, who turns all Wilds during the free spins into expanding Wilds. Gorilla Grodd adds a Roaming Wild to reels every time his symbols appear during free spins. Finally there’s the Mirror Master, who awards 4 free spins for each symbol of his own.
