The Theory of Evolution might not seem like the most obvious choice for a slot machine, but that’s exactly what Net Entertainment’s “Evolution” is about. Though its doubtful most biologists would consider it very scientific – it aims to entertain after all. Like most Net Entertainment slots, the graphics and sound in Evolution is first rate, though more sombre and atmospheric than usual.
Evolution features 5 reels and 25 bet lines. Wild symbols can appear on reels 2 to 5 and substitute for all other symbols, except the free spins, where three or more free spins activate the free spin function – 10 free spins for 3 free spin symbols, up to 20 free spins for 5. And it’s during the free spins the game really gets interesting and exciting. The symbols used in Evolution consist of creatures in various stages of evolution, from the low-paying amoeba “Primo Blobulus” to the highly evolved “Draconius Rex”, a sort of winged cross between a squirrel and a raccoon.
During Free Spins, whenever you hit a winning combination, the symbols used in the win evolve to the next stage. If you win with Primo Blobulus, it will evolve into Blobulus Astrum, and you won’t see any more Primo Blobuluses. What that means is that during Free Spins, as you win, you’ll see more and more high-paying symbols on the reels, and fewer low-paying ones. Simply put: in Evolution, Free Spins usually mean it’s time for some nice payouts, without you having to risk any of your own money.
Evolution is a beautiful and atmospheric slot, and the evolution feature can make playing it both exciting and rewarding. Evolution can be found at many online casinos, and if you’re interested in giving it a spin, check out this review at casinosonline.ie of Garbo Casino, for an interesting option.
