Quickspin is all about creating products that will be enjoyed by a broad cross-section of players: they say they try to make games that they would enjoy playing themselves. Whether or not their games live up to that billing is up to you to decide, but the company has certainly made a strong effort to provide variety, action, and fun in the more than 20 slot machines they have developed in the past few years.
One thing that you won’t find from this company are games based on well-known movies, television programmes, or comics. Without the ability to use these sorts of names to instantly attract an audience, the provider has instead relied on more classic themes and good old-fashioned strong gameplay features in order to build a fan base from scratch.
Without a single standout game, it’s hard to know where to start in the Quickspin collection. The games we’ve chosen to highlight here represent a good sampling of what they have to offer, but there are certainly other games in their portfolio that explore other themes and styles that might appeal to some players. Still, we think this should give you a fair look at what you can expect from this collection.
The Epic Journey: Inspired by the Jules Verne tale “Journey to the Centre of the Earth,” this machine will take you on a grand adventure into forgotten worlds filled with rare gems and creatures long thought extinct. The game is played over three separate sets of reels, giving you the chance to play on 100 win lines on each and every spin. Several special features are included as well, from Safari Free Spins to a Volcano feature that can “erupt” to put spew wilds all across the reels.
The Wild Chase: Technically, this game has nothing to do with the Fast and the Furious movies – but we’d forgive you if you say more than a small similarity in theme here. Three aspects of this game combine to create a highly memorable experience. First, while this looks like a standard five-reel slot, your winning combinations will lock and then cause the remaining symbols to respin on each and every play – respinning again and again until you fail to make more combinations. While this is happening, any wild symbols will cause a multiplier gauge to increase, boosting each of your wins. Finally, you’ll be able to collect bonus symbols during these spins as well, with a total of three being enough to take you into the second screen feature that can award more free spins.
Jewel Blast: This five-reel slot machine is fairly basic in terms of thematic elements: you’ll only be matching the titular gems along with the classic poker rank symbols in order to win some prizes. The real attraction here is in the gorgeous graphics and animations, along with a bonus feature that sees additional wilds added to the reels and a potentially endless number of respins adding to your winnings.
The Three Musketeers: If you don’t have access to modern fictional tales for your slots, why not go back to the public domain classics? One such story is that of The Three Musketeers, which has stood the test of time to entertain audiences for centuries. While you’ll be playing as D’artagnan, the Three Musketeers will be there to help you along the way, acting as expanding wilds to make it easy to score huge wins. With wild multipliers and plenty of ways to score big wins, it’s truly all for one, and one for all on this machine.
Sinbad: Explore the seven seas with one of the world’s most famous pirates in this slot filled with action and adventure. Most of the symbols in this game have stacks hidden among the reels; lining them up at the right times has the potential to earn astronomical prizes across this machine’s 40 reels. There are also three different bonus rounds, each based on a famous Sinbad adventure and offering a slightly different experience.
One thing that all of these games have in common is absolutely beautiful presentation. Bold, bright colours are used to create lush landscapes and backgrounds, as well as detailed symbols and icons on the reels themselves. This is obviously a point of emphasis in the creation of each machine: every single game we’ve tried is both a treat to look at and easy to play, seamlessly combining outstanding art with a user-friendly interface.
