A mad scientist’s laboratory is the setting for Volts and Bolts, a sizzling, 5 reel, 50 payline video slot from WMS. Look out for the robot symbol that can deliver free spins where you can win special bonus prizes or 1 of 4 fixed jackpot prizes. There’s also a standard free spins round. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile devices from between 50p and £45 per spin.
We’ve sometimes been disappointed with the design of WMS games but Volts and Bolts looks terrific. A laboratory filled with gadgets is the setting here. Joining the lower value playing cards are more lucrative diary, wrench, voltmeter and brain symbols. The Volts and Bolts logo is the top standard symbols, paying 5 times your bet if you land 5 on the same payline.
Helping to create the winners is the battery which is the wild – it doesn’t offer any payouts but it does replace everything bar the scatter and robot (bonus) symbols. There are 2 free spin rounds in Volts and Bolts.
Robot Lock It Link feature – land 6 or more robot symbols on the same spin trigger this round where you’ll receive 5 free spins. Hope to see the robots during this round – when they hit, they lock in place.
Land 4 or more of them and they could transform and link together to form an Electricity Reel and award the High Voltage Spins feature. These offer payouts of up to 750 times your stake or 1 of the Mini, Minor, Major or Grand Jackpot prizes. The more robots in the Electricity Reel, the bigger the possible payouts.
Mad Scientist Free Spins feature – this round is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin. You’ll receive 12 free spins as well as a payout of 2, 15 or 100 times your total stake.
This is an impressively designed video slot and certainly one of WMS better efforts. The range of features isn’t wide but the 2 free spin rounds offer some very decent potential, especially the Robot Lock It Link feature.
Land a good combination of robots and Dr Volts can engineer some exciting action. If you like the theme, Alchymedes by Yggdrasil Gaming is a very good alternative.
