The Spin Lab Science Slot
The Spin lab is an interesting slot as it offers you the rather unique opportunity to create your own bonus features. Instead of hitting certain fixed features, you will be given the chance to choose from a set amount of them, and thus play the ones that you like best.
The Spin Lab is an online and mobile video slot from NextGen Gaming, which features twenty five paylines and five reels. This is a medium to high variance slot, which means that the small wins are few and far between, and you have to wait for the big ones. The big ones do happen though; you just have to have patience.
The slot works well on both desktop screens as well as smaller mobile ones, which means that you really can play The Spin Lab anywhere that you are, so long as you have a decent Internet connection.
Spin Lab Sciency Symbols
The overall theme to this slot is a science one, and the symbols and reels reflect this. The reels are set in a science lab, with an electric blue background and some pretty good graphics. Vibrantly coloured anti mater balls, mixing chemicals, DNA, Atoms, and molecules are all to be found populating the reels. This is a blue slot. Blue reels, blue background, it looks almost like a transporter room from a science fiction show. The graphics are good however.
All crisp and 3D making this slot look good no matter what screen you play it on. The symbols as mentioned are from the science theme, except for the base ones which are from a deck of cards and look a little out of place like a fat kid at a dance. The high value symbols are the aforementioned science ones including the DNA strand. The wild symbol is a multi-coloured icon with the word Wild on it, and can substitute for all other symbols except the scatter, which is a glowing silver ball.
Spin Lab Bonus Features
This is where The Spin Lab can get a tad confusing. This all starts when you land three or more silver balls anywhere on your reels. Initially this will award you with five free spins, after which you head to The Spin Lab to choose your bonus ingredients. Here there are three rows, each row holding an option that you can pick.
The first row is all about symbols. Here you have the choice of making all high value symbols meld into one symbol. Or one of the high value symbols becomes stacked during spins. Or you can pick a high value symbol and each time it lands on the reels it awards you with a cash prize.
The second row holds the answers to the wild symbols. You can choose to make all wilds stacked, or receive extra wilds on your reels. You can even choose that each and every win that involves a wild has a random multiplier attached that goes all the way up to 10x.
The last row lets you choose between making all wins be doubled, or deciding that all wins be paid not only from left to right, but right to left as well. Your last choice on row three is to receive an additional five extra free spins. To select any of these options, you have to use the AutoPick option on the left hand side to start things off. The spins will start when you have made your selection.
