Sparky and Shortz Slot (Play n Go)

Sparky and Shortz Slot (Play n Go)Play n GO is never short of interesting slot machines, and their latest is Sparky & Shortz, a game that revolves around two terraforming robots.

I could not resist this intriguing theme, and I headed straight to my favourite online casino, and here is my experience playing the slot for real money:

Game Set-Up

Sparky & Shortz offers just 5 reels and active 10 lines. It has a good list of great features that include stacked symbols, free spins, wilds, and multipliers.

Betting and Prizes

Sparky & Shortz offers a reasonable betting range, and to place many real money wagers, I needed to use between $0.10. and $100 per spin.

The top bet value is $1,000,000 or 10,000x the stake which is not a bad price considering that it is a high volatility game. Also, the slot offers a good RTP of 96.28% which is above average for modern slots.

Sparky & Shortz Slot Features

The wilds are among the most obvious features, and they have the ability to land on all reels. They serve in combination with any regular symbol to form a new combo.

I realised that when used to form combinations directly, the wilds have the potential to pay as much as 20x the stake per every line where they act.

I loved the multiplier and it can be applied to wins whenever you get a stacked symbol to cover an entire reel. You can get 2x to 10x multipliers on the round’s wins, and bigger ones can be boosted randomly via the Boost Meter.

Scatters are on standby to trigger the free spins, and these symbols will appear in the image of power cells. They only land on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th reels.

With three in view, Sparky and Shortz rewarded me with 10 free spins. I was able to retrigger them and this time around, I received an extra 5 spins (this is capped at 100 spins).

It is while in the free mode that I activated the Boost Meter, and the good news here is that this meter increases without ever resetting between spins. This is how you end up with up to 10x active multipliers active for multiple free spins.

Theme & Design

If science fiction stories and/or movies are your thing, then you will enjoy Sparky & Shortz even more. Play n Go has given this game a lot of high-end graphics, plus a good mix of symbols.

Among them are the wild and scatter, images of three aliens, plus five types of rocks that also come in different colours.


Sparky & Shortz is a great example of a well-designed slot game from Play n Go. I love the developer’s usual fun features, not to forget the high potential that is present in this game.

If you are comfortable with brutally volatile slot machines, then this is a must-try.
