Spin the 3 reels of this slot machine and you could be in with the chance to win a jackpot prize worth 5,000x the value of the coins at stake. The Microgaming title may appear to be just like any other 3-reel slot machine with its 1 payline and range of classically inclined symbols. However, the showbiz themed game promises to provide a little bit of extra glam with some bonus gameplay features such as wild symbols that multiply the normal prize payout by 4x, not to mention a special Wheel of Wealth bonus side game.
Symbols of the game
Spectacular is a slot machine which takes after many other 3-reeled Microgaming titles, offering a simple set-up which blends some conventional slot machine icons with a simple yet unique theme. This time around, the theme which is called upon is that of show business, meaning that the reels are adorned with plenty of bright lights and glitzy decorations, not to mentions a squad of traditional dancing girls, all decked out in the most extraordinary feathered outfits.
Upon the reels, players will find a ticket to the show with an “Admit One” symbol as well as some other icons that you might find on any classic slot machine game, such as single, double and triple BARS and a big bold number 7 – just for that extra element of good luck.
The slot is sufficiently colourful enough and detailed to ensure that it catches the eye with every spin. However, players who are accustomed to 5-reel video slots with extravagant animations and 3D graphics might find this game to be very primitive in comparison.
This game does vary from some of the other Microgaming 3-reelers, but not in a particularly good way. That is because the game has a very limited offering of wagering options. In fact, there are only two ways that spinners can bet when they play this game: with 1 Coin worth 1 credit, or 2 coins worth 1 credit.
Ostensibly, playing with 2 coins in this game will set spinners up for some bigger potential payouts. The reason for this is the fact that the paytable shown next to the reels displays multipliers for players who have 2 coins that are double in value to those for players with only 1 coin.
However, in actual fact, this is not the case in the majority of cases since only 1 coin will be multiplied regardless of how many are placed as a wager. Although, having said that, spinners will find that playing with 2 coins offers a slightly more rewarding payout when three of the game’s “Spectacular” logo icons align on the 1 payline.
That logo icon is not only the slot machine’s most lucrative paying icon, but it will also help players to make smaller wins by acting as a wild symbol. What’s more, whenever one or two of these icons step in to complete a winning combination, the normal prize value will be doubled or quadrupled.
Wheel of Wealth bonus
There is another advantage to playing with 2 coins in this slot machine. That is because with 2 reels as a stake, players will be eligible to trigger the game’s bonus game by finding the “Spin” icon on the payline on the third reel. Just spin the wheel and receive a prize that could be worth up to 1,000 credits.
