Spectra is the newest game release from Thunderkick software that has enlightened us with unique games for quite a while. In their newest game we can explore the nostalgic feeling of the 1980’s which are the main inspiration for this game. Spectra is a 5 reel and 30 pay line pokie with a dark background, neon colors and bold geometric shapes as the pokie symbols. The design looks very sophisticated as the symbols have only neon outlines, but the shapes themselves are transparent and the dark background gives the pokie a more night time look.
Simplicity and minimalism describe this game greatly as there is no actual bonus round or a free spins feature.
But with that in mind, the game has wild symbols that are multi- functional as they substitute other symbols and also trigger the wild re- spin feature, where the wilds nudge towards the center and for every wild you receive an extra re- spin. During this feature players can look forward to some big wins.
From a technical point of view, this game has a fixed amount of 30 pay lines, which makes it very affordable for players, as the bets range from $0.10 up to $100 per spin. Spectra is an entertainment experience and with its’ interesting design and unusual bonus feature that comes up frequently, it won’t make you bored.
What We Love
There are many things to love about the Spectra pokie but the one we loved the most was the design. It is a very trendy thing to make a pokie with a 1980’s comeback theme, but Thunderkick has done it with such great style and managed to turn it into a sophisticated game.
Spectra has a wonderful color scheme and the sounds for the pokie are so good that there is no chance that someone would prefer to play it with the sound off.
Besides, the wild nudge re- spin is a really unique feature which is exciting and can payout nicely. And last but not least, we love that we can play this game on our mobile devices as for many players it is more convenient.
What We Do Not Like
Although there are many things we loved, we did find some things we dislike about the Spectra pokie. It is fun that the game has a unique bonus feature, but we really missed the fact that there’s no free spin bonus round, with an actual amount of free spins and some sort of a multiplier.
Because of that, even though it is possible to get more than one re- spin by getting more wild symbols, it is hard to get a decent win, because the game symbols themselves have low payouts considering that for 5 wild symbols you only get a 20x bet win.
Definitely! We had some good and some bad things to say about this game, but it is definitely a pokie that needs to be tried out as it has many good qualities.
The design is an eye- candy and won’t make your eyes feel tired even after a long session and with its affordable bets and frequent winnings it can help you wager any bonus. If you love great entertainment and value simplicity with a touch of nostalgia from the 1980’s, then this is the right game for you.
