Electric Avenue Slot (Microgaming)
Electric Avenue is a new release that was designed by All41Studios, exclusively for Microgaming. The partnership between these two firms has brought about several exciting games.
Electric Avenue is an 80s style design, that is decorated with neon lights. To give it a modern touch, the developer has incorporated a few unique and modern features.
Electric Avenue is a 6 reels slot, and it also comes with up to 4096 ways to win. It has some exciting features like the Wild Reel mechanic that is able to deliver up to14x combined multipliers.
Other features present include the scatter symbols as well as two types of free spins (one has sticky wilds, while the other has 55x multipliers).
Betting and Prizes
The betting range is within the usual level that we have seen on most other modern slots. To place a wager, I was required to use at least $0.20, while the highest that it cost is $30 per spin.
The rewards are quite mouth-watering, and the game has the potential to award up to 6,833x the stake. This figure translates to about $205,000 in cash.
I’m happy with the RTP of 96.37% that Microgaming has offered for this slot. However, as I came to find out, the slot is very high in volatility, which means it’s a high-risk game to play.
Electric Avenue Slot Features
Electric Avenue uses a very powerful and popular mechanic, the Wild Reels. These will appear in the middle columns of the game (on four out of the six reels available).
The number of reels is what determines the multiplier to be used. For example, reels 2 to 5 will use 2x to 5x multipliers. If several wild reels appear at the same time, it means that the multipliers will be combined, which can mean up to 14x multipliers in total.
The game has two types of free spins, and both can be triggered with the help of the same 3-6 scatters. It’s up to you to decide which of the two types of free spins will trigger.
The first option is the 7 Electric Free Spins. With it, you will be awarded a random symbol that can then be transformed into a Power Wild. It is a Sticky Wild that stays in its position for as far as there are free spins available.
The other option rewards you with up to 10 Neon Free Spins. This version relies on a Wild Wheel, and with it, you can get up to 55x multipliers. This one mostly appears on the 2nd to 5th reel.
Theme & Design
For Electric Avenue, Microgaming chose to go for a style Miami Beach theme. It portrays a sunny area, with the use of a purple/pink coloured background image.
Present symbols include Neon-made card suits, soda cans, sneakers, Rubik’s cube, a boom box, sunglasses, and several feature symbols.
If you are a fan of the Neon-style design, you will love Electric Avenue.
However, it seems like the game relies heavily on the features to deliver the top payouts.
