Spectra is a 5-reel, 30-payline game from Thunderkick that has a retro computer feel. In fact, if you’ve ever seen the classic 1980s movie Tron, or the remake from 2010, Spectra has a similar feel. Let’s continue discussing this concept below along with Spectra’s symbols, betting options, features, and return to player (RTP).
Spectra features a plain navy blue background, with faint white particles moving around. While the background is nothing special, it does a good job of making you feel as if you’re inside a computer – like the Tron movies. The animated title at the top of the screen helps sell the theme too because it flashes rainbow colors while you’re playing.
The symbols are all different-colored neon shapes, including the number 7, a 4-leaf clover, BAR, bell, circle, pentagon, square, and triangle. There’s also a Wild Stop symbol, which we’ll explain more in the features section.
Every time that you form winning payouts, you can look forward to an 80s-style lights show. This goes great with the techno music to further sell the retro vibe.
As for betting options, the 30 paylines are fixed, but you can change your total bet from €0.10 up to €100.00. You can also autoplay the reels with your selected betting options for between 5 and 5,000 spins.
The wild symbol is a multi-colored W, and it substitutes for every other symbol to help form wins. The W also appears stacked, which greatly improves your chances of getting wins through the wild.
Another bonus to the wild symbol is that every new stack triggers a re-spin. If you get a W towards the edge of the reels, it will nudge up or down to become a wild stack.
The W is also the highest paying symbol, offering 20x your triggering bet when it appears 5 times in a payline.
RTP for Spectra is 96.4%, which is good for an online slot. Another thing worth mentioning is that the win frequency is high for Spectra, which helps make up for the low top payout of 20x your bet.
Beyond the high RTP and win frequency, the biggest reason to play Spectra is the unique atmosphere. If you’ve seen Tron and/or Tron: Legacy and liked them, chances are that you’re going to have fun with Spectra. The only drawback, though, is that this slot is low on special features.
A return to the retro theme is what the Spectra online slot brings us and it does it well
